On the northern half of the American continent, bordering the United States of America to the south, you'll find the country of Canada; a member of the British Commonwealth and the largest country in the Americas. It's estimated that around 80% of the country's population of almost 40 million lives within 100 miles of the US border given the north provinces' cold climate. Despite its advanced connections by road, the sheer size of the country makes car hire in Canada the best way to see its many cultural and historical attractions; the breathtaking Niagara Falls in the southeast Ontario region and the metropolitan centres like Vancouver in the west are equally worthy of a visit, so hiring a car in Canada is a must.
The sheer size of Canada makes visiting for a general road trip quite a daunting concept but hiring a car in Canada takes care of the problem. The country is thousands of miles long, making any cross-country drive potentially difficult one. However, the major cities like Calgary and Vancouver, which have each held a Winter Olympics and benefited hugely from tourism ever since, as well as the capital Ottawa, are all booming business destinations and can't be missed. Hire a car in Canada and you'll be able to see any of these great cities as well as the diverse scenery of each province.
Hiring a car in Canada means you should familiarize yourself with the customs of the road; unlike in Britain cars drive on the right, and the country's sheer size means there are many different types of road to drive on. The speed limit signs in Canada are given in kilometres rather than miles, so don't accelerate to match the number as you could already be at the right speed! Another thing to be very careful of is that, due to the extreme climate in some parts of the country, conditions could be dangerous on the road due to ice and snow.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
