Anchored by the Parliament buildings, the capital of Canada offers a dynamic compilation of inspiring museums, bilingual neighborhoods, public spaces, and delightful winter festivities.
With four distinct seasons, Ottawa is fluttering with exciting things to do all year round. Regal yet gracious, explore the city’s notable landmarks and local hangouts then forge ahead to the rest of Ontario in your Ottawa car rental alternative.
In a city where locals often skate to work or school in the winter, Ottawa is steeped in heritage with a diverse range of attractions for everyone.
Enjoy a leisurely afternoon next to the iconic Rideau Canal. Winding along for five miles, the waterway transforms into an outdoor skating rink during the colder months.
Home to Canada’s government and surrounded with breathtaking views of the city and the Ottawa River, take a tour and wander the grounds of the Parliament buildings.
Set aside a few hours and browse this contemporary gallery. Enclosed in a glass tower, exhibitions include the famous Canadian landscape painters known as the Group of Seven, aboriginal artwork, and European impressionism.
Feeling adventurous? Pack a lunch and head to Bonnechere Caves for a unique and informative geological tour through underground tunnels and past stalactites, coral, and ancient cave creatures.
For a slower and more relaxed pace, head to Chelsea to replenish your energy levels. Book a massage at the Nordik Spa or stroll along the main street for lunch, pastries, or ice cream.
The perfect spot for nature lovers, take a quick 15-minute drive across the river from Ottawa’s downtown for gorgeous views and hiking paths for all levels and abilities.
Great rental! Perfect car for two and great communication, super easy pick up and drop off from the host. Highly recommend.
Once again a great rental experience...great communication and very accommodating with pick-up and drop off...will definately rent from Ashley again!!!
My experience on Turo just keeps getting better! This is the second time I book a trip on the app, and Yuan has only exceeded my expectations! Not only is he a great host but the car was also smooth on the drive and in impeccable condition! I have nothing but good things to say about Yuan and the car! Thank you for your time and service!😀
Mohamed is an excellent host. Great communication and very flexible. The car was in great conditions and very clean. Highly recommended host and will definitely rent from him again.
Nice trip with Ashley's car! It was a pleasure to use it. The car was clean and easy to drive.
Great host and great car! Super communicative and very easy-going. The car was cleaned and had an easy pickup. Will definitely rent again!
Ashley is great! Her car is nice and cozy and she is a very understanding person! I will be renting from her again😋 Thank you so much Ashley!
Was an awesome Host and would recommend to rent from . Car is fantastic and awesome . Thanks again Mo.
Nice little car...good on gas..quick and easy rental...Nesaruddin was very easy to deal with...will rent again!!
Great experience. Chris was super accommodating and quick to answer all my messages. And his car is pretty baller. Thank you!
This was my first trip with Turo and I had a great experience with Mousa's Mazda. It handled the snow storm very well. Mazda himself was friendly and very responsive. Would definitely recommend.
Gabriel was a great host. Very nice car as well! I definitely recommend to book with Gabriel.
As always Darren is the most professional and Elite renter I rent from! Will always suggest him!
Alejandro is great and super fast & thorough with communication. The car drives beautifully and I have no critiques!
When I need to rent a car I always go back to Greg! Always clean, ready and never got a surprise!
I enjoyed renting the Nissan Versa from Nesaruddin. It drives well and is good on gas. Nesaruddin was great to deal with. He allowed me to extend the rental and replied quickly. Thanks Sean
Paul has been available, clear, and on time. His car was relient, clean and comfortable. I couldn't have asked more from a rental. Will definitely rent from him again.
Second rental with M. Nesaruddin and really happy! Easy, on time, clean car and flexible!
This is the second time I rent a car from Muhanad. He is very nice, professional and flexible. I would definitely rent from him again.
Both Nesaruddin and car were nice. Nesaruddin is a very nice guy and easy going. And the car runs well, very handy and economic. I drove it for 470 km most in the city and cost 40$ in fuel. I would definitely use Nesaruddin’s car again whenever I need to rent a car!
This was our first Car through Turo and I don’t think we will go through a rental agency again. Phearak was professional and friendly and I wouldn’t hesitate to rent a car through him again. Car had no faults and was economical on gas considering it was a big car. Thanks Phearak.
Greg is so flexible and communicative. The car is also perfect. Great host and car. I would recommend them to every one who wants to rent a car.
Super clean car. Very easy drive. And Greg was a fantastic, communicative host. I definitely hope to rent again in the future.
Not the first time i rent from Nesaruddin, and definitely not the last one. Everything was great, the car was fine, couldn’t be better for the price!
Mengyu is class. Everything was smooth all the way through until the end of the trip. Some of the best hours of my life, no question. What a pleasure. Thank you.
Ashley is an excellent host, very accommodating and quick to respond...car was great to drive and good on good...would highly recommend renting this car...will definately rent again!!! Thank you!!
The car was exactly what was promised. It was perfectly clean and disinfected on pickup, everything worked well, and all the accessories were provided. I will rent this vehicle again
Great car! Very clean and Paul provided wipes to clean it before return which is appreciated! Drives great and the host is very responsive, will definitely rent again!
Patrick is an awesome guy! Very professional and just a happy person all around! He made my first Turo experience very memorable. When I need to rent a car I will be sure to use him :)
I had to rent a car for two weeks while I shopped for a car, as my wife went back to work. He was very helpful in meeting me half way in pick up and drop off. Makes the stressful transition a little easier.
Mohammad was great to deal with. Friendly and flexible. His genesis is a great luxury car. Very clean with a bunch of options and acceleration. I would recommend renting from him
Benson is a gem. Very welcoming and genuinely a nice guy. I'd struggle to think how he could have improved the experience. The car was ready in the driveway and Benson even changed his password in case I wanted to use the Tesla app (which came in handy to see the charge status of the car). He took the time to explain me some of the intricacies of the car before I took off - which made the time with the car that much more enjoyable. The Tesla was in great condition considering the number of kilometers. The car has obviously been cleaned and washed prior to pick up. I'd definitely recommend Benson and his Tesla and I'd strongly consider renting it again next time I'm in Ottawa.
The “Beast” was amazing. Driving it was the most relaxing thing I ever. When you never have driven one .. Ashok is a great person. He is a nice person he made sure the car was SANITIZED yes i said it in capital because not everyone who rents their cars go an extra mile especially during these times . Thanks for letting me rent the “Beast” given only short notice. The car was very clean and well taken care off. No issues on the handles and very good on gas mileage on this car. I enjoy the trip on this. Its a 10star rating
Great car, cool host, very flexible and friendly, will book a ride again with Paul with pleasure!
Very clean and quick access on such short notice. Would definitely rent again from the owner.
Great car, great host. Very good on gas, smooth ride. If you want a good driving experience, this car’s the way to go!
Amazing car, very accomodating host. It drives really well, was great on gas, and very clean! Yuan was down to earth and friendly, and made checking out and in very easy!
great host and great car, the mini is really fun to drive! I recommend Darren’s car !
Beautiful, safe car. Very comfortable and amazing to drive. The host was also very accommodating!!
Easy pick-up and drop off, and it's hard to beat the fuel economy of this car; under $20 to fill up a 220 km drive!
Great rental of this beautiful car. Darren was very accommodating and made the whole process very easy. We totally enjoyed our 24 hrs with the i8.
Greta trip! car was clean and easy to drive. Pranav was able to drop off and pickup from my location which made things much easier. would definitely rent again.
Yoan was a great host as his car was very smooth, fun and easy to drive. Thank you a lot!
Mike was amazing and the car was super clean, well maintained, and drove extremely well! Next time I need a rental I’ll definitely rent this one again!
Mohamed was a great host, and the Nissan Maxima was great for driving - would definitely rent again!
Shadee is a very kind host. Her car is well maintained, very good on gas and super clean. I love driving Toyota Prius. It’s a good car for couples . Her mileage cap is very flexible (1,200 km free) even though you might not need that many miles. If you ever pass by Ottawa, choose Shadee’s car whenever it is available for us. Very good rate, and friendly person. It is my first experience with Turo and I’d say I love it !!!Thanks Shadee, you made our trip a great one . Until next time !
Had a good experience throughout the trip. The modernity of the car was very convenient considering most rentals around this price are somewhat old. Overall great experience.
Great host, great car. Mengyu was very easy to deal with, car clean and in great shape. Would definitely rent again and would recommend Mengyu without hesitation.
Greg is great! Very easygoing and nice. His car was amazing! Very very good on gas which made exploring Ottawa and Montreal much easier. Car was also in very good shape and very clean! Would definitely rent this car again if I’m back in town!
Benson was great, available to answer any questions and explain anything cool and interesting about the car.
A little confusion over drop off...but overall went...good little car and great on gas
Greg is a great host! Super quick to respond and his car is always clean! This is my third time booking his car and I’ll definitely book it again.
Mohamed was very friendly and my trip went great. I had to top up the air in the tires a bit but that was no problem. Host was very responsive and accommodating, thank you again!
This was my first Turo booking and I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Mike was very kind and explained evey detail of the car. The car itself was very clean and easy to buy. I would definitely recommend to others and would book again.
John and his car are equally great! Grateful to have had snow tires, car ran beautifully, and John was so accommodating and flexible. So thankful!
Very easy going guy! An very reasonable an understanding would recommend to rent from him anytime. 👍🏻
This was my first time driving a Tesla, Benson's car was well maintained and worked very well. We had a wonderful time in this car. Benson was available, helpful, and went above and beyond with this rental. Thank you Benson.
Always a pleasure renting with Pranav! His response rate is incredible and he's so understanding and accommodating. Car is in good condition and is reliable. Thanks, Pranav - looking forward to our next trip!
Ashish was very professional and nice. The service and the car itself made my roadtrip all that much better. 5 stars, would recommend anyone to deal with him.
Had an amazing weekend with Emad’s kia smooth travels, very fuel efficient. The Km allowance is also better compared to other cars, and the price also great! It was very clean. Emad was very friendly and easy to communicate with. Would definitely rent again :)
Simon delivered exactly on time and was very kind in being flexible, will rent again from him surely when I visit Ottawa

Travel along this uphill route alongside the Gatineau Hills and you’ll be rewarded with the best scenic views of the park once you reach the Champlain Lookout.
Sit back and enjoy this easy four-mile drive beginning at the fairytale-like Chateau Laurier then weaving alongside Rideau Canal, a UNESCO World Heritage site, and on to Dow’s Lake.
A smooth drive that winds around the Ottawa River, this scenic road takes you through the upscale area of Rockcliffe Park. For a side trip, consider stopping at the Aviation Museum or Rideau Hall.
