I provided my diver’s licence and my credit card. The employee asked me again what is my name, I said my name (second name and last name), although my middle name was clearly on my licence and my credit card, the employee wouldn’t give me the car until I was able to provide him with the booking confirmation.

When booking my rental online, it was all very easy.. almost too easy. I called Alamo to confirm that I met all standards required. The man stated on the phone that all I needed was a credit card and a valid G license and to be over the age of 25. I confirmed MULTIPLE times over the phone with this man that was all I needed. With this information I went ahead and confirmed with my friend that everything was all set to go. When we arrived at the Alamo location at 7am to pick up card, everything was going well until the lady informed me my credit card was declined. This was impossible because I had just paid it off. She then asked me if there was enough for the 388.00 deposit required to rent the vehicle. The limitation on my card is only 300 so I wasn’t able to book the vehicle WHEN I HAD CALLED TO CONFIRM WHAT WAS NEEDED EXACTLY. The last at the counter was very nice and didn’t give me a hard time but I am so disappointed that we almost had to miss a wedding because of this lack of information. I also read the fine print and didn’t see one part online stating that this was your policy. If I wouldn’t known, I wouldn’t of booked with you. I don’t appreciate being trapped in an money grabbing situation. This information needs to be CLEAR on your websites in an email.

I had booked a car and forgotten my credit card after enduring a long flight. The company would not allow a rental on visa/ MasterCard debit, stuck at airport for 2 hours trying to find a solution. Could not get ahold of customer support for assistance. Wasted half my day trying to find an alternative.

The attendant offered to upgrade me to a better vehicle, from a full size to an suv, for free but charged me the full price of the suv (I’m used to this type of upgrade since I’m an Emerald Club Executive Member). I also asked him to apply my corporate discount. When I received my email confirmation of the final charges, I found he charged me the full undiscounted price for the SUV and did not apply my corporate discount. Now I’m stuck with the hassle of getting them to adjust the charges... This is unusual for National, but very disappointing in this case

My flight was delayed and I ended up picking up the car much later than expected. I called to let them know and they claimed they had changed their hours. Then they sent the shuttle for me at the Airport which took half an hour when I could have ubered it in 5 min.

I booked SUV with  unlimited mileage for 7 days (Sept.24 to Oct. 1) and my reservation was for 11:30 am from CarCentals.com. My Confirmation number: LRT00033E8 .To my surprise, when I arrived to pick up my rental, I had to waiting there  until 12:00 then  informed me actually only 300 km per day! and Priya with her staff Dom told me that Routes's unlimited mileage is 2000 km for 7 days. and Priya  cancelled my reservation. I asked her have any cancellation fees .  she said  to me call CarRentals.com  Until now  I did not know Routes will charge me for the cancellation fees or not?

You can rent a vehicle in Ottawa if you are at least 19. Please note you'll most likely be charged an additional fee if you are younger than 25.

What rental car companies are at Ottawa Airport?

Does Canada require car insurance?

In Ottawa you do need to have insurance before you rent a car. Many of the major credit card issuers (Discover, American Express, Visa, and MasterCard) generally cover your car rental. But they frequently have prohibitions, such as not covering bigger vehicles, like premium models or some SUVs. It is best to call and find out exactly what your credit card will cover before you head to Ottawa.

You will need to bring your driver's license and a credit card in your name.

What is the fuel policy on my rental car?

We suggest a full tank policy. You should get into your vehicle topped off. However, if you return your rental with less fuel than you began with, the company may charge a premium to top it off. If you want to keep your expenses lower, you should fill up your tank before you bring it back. Stations near airports or car rental places tend to have higher prices.

Why should I get unlimited miles?

Ottawa definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the hot spots here. Whatever you pick to do, unlimited miles gives you one less thing to worry about when take in as much of Ottawa as possible while on your trip..

Can I get a one-way rental for my Ottawa trip?

The majority of car rental companies offer one-way rentals in most cases. You may find it easier to drop off your vehicle at another location. Be aware there is typically an additional fee when you choose one-way.

What kind of car would you recommend I hire at Ottawa Airport?

That all depends on your needs and what you will be doing. Smaller cars are easier to park and good for short drives. If you are traveling with coworkers, then a sedan or SUV is going to have more room for everyone's suitcases and be a more comfortable ride on longer commutes. Those looking for a bit of extravagance on their Ottawa getaway can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Cadillac XTS or similar.
