Can you take a rental car to Canada?
The majority of car rental companies will allow you to take a car rental into Canada, provided you are bringing it back to the rental location:
Although I could find no information for Thrifty about taking one of their rentals from the U.S. to Canada, a look at other company policies were as follows:
Alamo – yes, as long as you return it back in the US
Avis – yes – “US cars may be driven into Canada by US residents. A Canadian non-resident insurance card may be required and is available at the Avis rental location.”
Budget – yes -“US cars may be driven into Canada by US residents. A Canadian non-resident insurance card may be required and is available at the Budget rental location.”
Dollar – probably – “At most Dollar car rental locations, driving is restricted to the Continental United States and Canada. Please refer to the local policies, which are found within the reservation process, for specific information regarding geographic limitations at the Dollar rental car location where you intend to rent a Dollar vehicle.”
Enterprise – maybe – “Some offices will allow their vehicles to cross international boundaries. Please contact the office that you plan to rent from to see if they allow their vehicles to cross into another country. You can find an office phone number at www.enterprise.com.”
Hertz – yes – “The renter will need to advise the rental counter if they intend take the rental car into Canada.
You must have a valid license and rental record. Rentals from some cities may require presentation of Liability Protection Letters, Certificates or Stickers at Customs for driving into Canada.”
National – yes – “Any U.S. Citizen renting a vehicle in the U.S. may drive across the U.S./Canadian border with no restrictions. The driver may be asked by Customs to show a rental agreement and a form of identification, such as a driver’s license. “
