Although car hire in Canada is not cheap for solo travellers, it is the perfect way for groups and families to explore the breathtaking landscape of the world's second-biggest country. With Canada car hire from Nova, you can savour the grandeur at your own pace.


Car Hire Canada

Spectacular. Magnificent. Awesome. These are words you will use a lot when you take a car hire trip around Canada. A jaw-dropping 10 million square kilometres of epic mountains, endless skies, and giant glaciers, Canada has more breath-taking scenery than you could pack into a hundred car hire trips. And the wildlife here is simply unrivalled: Expect close encounters with grizzly bear, moose, polar bear, and humpback whales. Canada is certainly somewhere you won't forget.

Car Hire Requirements in Canada

When collecting your hire car in Canada, make sure to have your full driving licence and booking confirmation voucher with you. The main driver must pay the balance (rate less deposit) using their own credit card. Keep your licence, proof of insurance, and vehicle registration documents in the rental car at all times.

Airports in Canada

Bearing in mind its scale and relative isolation, it's hardly surprising that Canada has hundreds of airports. Toronto, Vancouver, and Montreal Trudeau international airports are the busiest, but other major airports in Canada include Calgary, Edmonton, and Ottawa international airports.

Canada Driving Rules & Regulations

When driving your rental car in Canada, remember to drive on the right and always wear your seatbelt, whether driving or a passenger. Driving distances may be greater than those you are used to, so ensure to bring food and water and adequate fuel for long journeys, particularly in winter, when road closures may lead to unexpected detours. Check which provinces require winter tyres, and watch out for large animals straying onto the roads in more remote areas. You can find a more complete guide to driving in Canada on our blog.

My first time using your company in Canada (4th time overall) and service was as good as always. Arrived late (11pm) but everything had been sorted by customer service prior to this. Clean, shiny almost new car presented by a friendly lady. The rate was also very competitive.

I rented a vehicle in Vancouver last month and I was on the road in 10 mins from pick up. The service I received from Nova was fantastic prior to arrival. There were no hidden fees, the car was new and your welcome home message was a nice touch.

Found it easy to contact your company when we needed to which is a rarity these days. We received a quality car at a great price. I would not hesitate to use your service again.
