Car rental Canada

Canada is a country located in North America. It haves a population of 34,961,000 people and it is using the Canadian dollar (C$). In Canada you have to drive on the right direction of the road.

To rent a car in Canada you will have to have a driving license, a passport and a valid credit card. Car rental companies will need an International Driving Permit, issued in your country, and to be older than 21 years old with a valid driving license for at least a year, although some may charge you more if you are 21-24 years old. At a four way intersection, the right of way has the car that arrived at the intersection first. When a school bus has its red flashing lights on, all vehicles must comply and stop. Signs in Quebec are only in French and you should have a basic knowledge. If you wish to drive all over the country check the policy of the company about unlimited mileage, as many companies may have additional fees when you go out of the province you rented the car. All passengers should wear their seatbelts and talking on the mobile phone is prohibited if you don't use a hands free device. When you drive outside the cities be alert as many wild animals may roam on the roads, especially during winter or during the night. Parking is allowed in very few places in the center of the city, so a parking lot is recommended, or you can park in a residential area and use public transport to the city center. There are no toll roads in Canada, except highway 407, which reads information from your vehicle by a sensor, rather than having a toll collection booth and the bill is then sent to the rental company and you need to pay the amount. Many of the gas stations have automatic pumps that accept credit cards.
