Car Rental Requirements

Drivers under 25 may incur a young driver surcharge while children between 22 and 40lbs must be secured in a forward-facing child seat. Seatbelts are mandatory for all age groups.

Speed Limits

Canadian speed limits are detailed below:

  • City: 37-44mph/60-70kph
  • Residential Areas: 25-30mph/40-50kph
  • Two-lane Highways: 50mph/80kph
  • Multi-lane Highways: 75mph/120kph

Rules of the Road

Similar to the United States, traffic travels on the right in Canada. However, due to the diversity of each province, Canadian road signs may be difficult to understand. A road sign featuring "90" does not necessarily indicate a speed limit of 90mph, for example. Therefore, it is recommended that a French phrase book be brought along to help interpret these signs. In addition, please be advised that speeding fines run extremely high.


Most gas stations along Canada's highways are available 24 hours and accept both cash and credit.


There are few toll highways in Canada.


Avoid street parking whenever possible as cars are frequently towed when left in prohibited areas. Signs marked with a green "P" indicate municipal parking and prove to be best option.

Canada Car Rental Insurance Information

All of Kemwel's car rental rates include fire and third party liability insurance. Inclusive rates are also available at an advanced purchase discount and provide collision and/or theft coverage. You may decide to decline these additional items, but as these insurances are in fact mandatory, you would need to ensure you are covered by your credit card. These offers are individually specific, so please contact your card issuer directly for details. Precise insurance information, as well as your rental details, will be printed on your confirmation voucher upon payment of your rental.

Required Coverage

Fire and third party liability insurance is required and is included in all rentals in Canada. Fire insurance covers the vehicle in the event of a fire whereas liability insurance covers damage or injury to people or property outside of the rental car. Collision and theft insurances are also mandatory and may be purchased locally. You may also choose to use your credit card for coverage should this is be an option allotted to you from your card provider.

Optional Coverage

Other insurance options available locally are Personal Effects Protection and Personal Accident Insurance. The former refers to insuring the client's belongings inside the car while the latter covers injuries to the persons inside the rental vehicle. You may also request tire and windshield coverage locally with select suppliers for an additional charge.

Rental Restrictions in Canada

Due to insurance regulations, there are strict restrictions on certain car categories and on travel into specific countries. Please note all desired countries of travel during the booking process to ensure that you are provided with the appropriate car class.

Restricted Countries

Rental vehicles in Canada are not allowed to travel into Alaska, Yukon or Mexico. Travel may be permitted into the US, however, provided the rental is not commencing from Toronto, Niagara Falls, Oakville, Mississauga, or a Windsor location.
