Rent a car in Ottawa, ON

Hit the road

Treat yourself to a slice of the good life — rent a car in Ottawa and leave the busy city streets of the downtown district behind to experience the nearby gems just a few hours’ drive away from the capital. Canadian winters bring inclement weather and icy roads, so if you’re visiting in the colder months, be sure to rent an all-wheel drive vehicle with snow tires equipped.
