Car hire in Canada for families

Whom are you travelling with?

Select what applies most to your needs Reset

Canada is the land of road trips and is best explored by car. Discover a diverse range of spectacular landscapes. We have many years of experience designing holidays that take in the unique contrasts of Canada. Without the need to visit every ‘highlight’ as promoted in the well-known guide books.

But it is also important not to waste your holiday driving. At a relaxed pace, spend a few hours driving between each location. And be sure to stop along the way to admire the local gems.

What type of car would you like to travel with?

Select information that matches you

A medium-sized SUV offers good fuel efficiency and more space for you and your luggage. Our hire cars are less than six months old, are well-equipped, and are well suited to drive on American roads.

National parks

With more than 340,000 square kilometres of national parks in Canada, there are endless natural treasures to explore. The national parks are easily accessible by car and you can easily park the car on the side of the road, and go for a walk. Or simply take in the breathtaking views.

In our experience, Canadians generally drive safely and responsibly. Be aware of the speed limits and wildlife. If you hit a moose, chances are your vehicle will come off worse than the animal. Fortunately, we ensure that you are never on the road for too long. Especially if you are traveling alone.

Routes

Canada offers a wide variety of scenic driving routes. These lead you through spectacular landscapes, lush forests, national parks, and prairies. Along the way, you will see glaciers, wildlife, and several hundred lakes. In your comfortable SUV, you can drive at a leisurely pace, and stay at least two to three nights at each location.

Explore the area, meet the locals and make the most of your trip. Are you curious about the ideal routes? Our travel specialists will inform you about the best routes and timetables. We are more than happy to discuss all options with you in a personal conversation.

Since 1 April 2019, we are carbon offsetting all of our client’s flights and car driving whilst they are on holiday.

"Taking the 1 from Vancouver to Calgary is one of the best drives I have ever experienced, so much of the beauty, Canada has to offer can be seen in that drive."
