What you need to know about car rentals
How do I find the best rates on an Ottawa Economy car rental?
CarRentals.com always tries to get you the lowest rates, no matter when you book. However, getting your car well ahead of your visit can help keep spending low. Make sure to keep the car under one driver's name and read the mileage policy to avoid any unexpected fees.
What should I have with me when I get my rental car in Ottawa?
Be sure to carry with you your driver's permit and a credit card in your name.
How old do I have to be to rent a car in Ottawa?
Most suppliers in Ottawa require that you at least be 21 years old to rent a car. Take time to read through Economy's policies, as there may be added fees if you are under 25 or for higher category cars in particular.
Is there a particular car I should get for my trip to Ottawa?
That all depends on your needs and what activities you want to do in Ottawa. Economy or compact cars are easier to park and good for short commutes. If you are traveling with colleagues or family, then a mid-size car or SUV is going to have enough room for all of you and offer a more comfortable ride on longer drives. Those looking for a little extravagance on their Ottawa vacation can choose the premium category to get a car like a Mercedes C-Class or Audi A4 or similar.
Do I need insurance when I rent a car in Canada?
You are required to have insurance before you rent from Economy in Canada. Although many of the major card issuers, like Visa or American Express, provide some coverage, there are usually restrictions. For instance, they may not cover your rental car if you book a larger or luxury vehicle. Make sure to check credit card company's policy before you decide.

What is the fuel policy on my Economy car rental?
At CarRentals.com, we suggest a full to full policy. You pick up your Economy rental with a full tank, and you will want to refuel up to the amount you picked the car up with. If you want to save some money, it is best to find a gas station before you bring it back to Economy.
Should I get unlimited miles when I rent a car in Ottawa?
Ottawa definitely has its charms, but you may want to hit the road again after you've checked off all the activities in Ottawa.
