KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Burlington

  • Use your cheap car hire in Burlington, Canada, to make your holiday as convenient as possible, particularly if you're planning on seeing many sites and embarking on road trips. Burlington does have public transport, but not to the extent you may need to truly make your holiday a memorable one. Waiting times and high costs are an issue, so book a hire car and be free to enjoy local sites such as the Royal Botanical Gardens, the historic Village Square, the UNESCO-listed World Biosphere Reserve and others. If wanting to venture down highways around Burlington, you can enjoy a quick road trip up to Niagara Falls in less than 2 hours, or reach Toronto in about 40min.
  • When landing in this part of Canada, you might collect your Burlington car hire from the Pearson International Airport (YYZ). You can find the car hire companies on Level 1 of Terminals 1 and 3 in the car parks. The on-site companies include SURPRICE CAR RENTAL, Hub Rent A Car, Thrifty, Discount Car & Truck Rental, Dollar and others. If you need to get any accessories for the vehicle, remember to book them in advance to ensure they are available. When you have collected the vehicle, you can head into Burlington via the ON-407W.
  • With your cheap car hire in Burlington, you will be driving in the right-hand side of the road, unlike the UK’s left. Once you are comfortable and have your bearings, you will notice rules are not that unlike the UK, particularly as Canada is one of the few countries to have the same drinking and driving limit of 0.08%. The roads are well-signed and, as this is an English-speaking part of Canada, you will have no issues navigating your way around. The city is quite large, and a GPS is advisable. There are several large highways running through Burlington, which will give you quicker access to other cities. Keep children buckled up in car seats in the backseat to avoid hefty fines.
  • When driving your cheap car hire in Burlington, you will notice a few challenges, which may take some adjusting to. Burlington has quite bad traffic, particularly at highways intersections such as the Highway 403, Queen Elizabeth Way and Highway 407 ETR. The city urges people not to drive unless for work during the hours of 7:00 and 9:00 and again at 16:00 until 19:00. Snow is prolific during winter and all-season tyres are advised, as well as keeping a scraper in the car. Canada favours automatic cars, whereas the UK tends to drive manual transmission vehicles, so you will need some time to adjust. Alternatively, book a manual car when you make your booking.
  • Book your car hire in Burlington at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini car hire in Burlington are around -97% cheaper than other car types, on average

Pros:

First the staff told me they would pick me up from the location I was at and then later told me they are not doing that anymore. No one ever told me that the location I instructed to drop off the location was closed. So I had to drive over 100km to drop off the car. The rental company put some other location in the drop off location.

Cons:

It would be nice if this location would not jerk their customers around.

Pros:

We received an upgrade don't know why? The vehicle was more what we needed and the price was same as the smaller car. The person we dealt with was polite, explained the rental to us, and return policy if closed. We were pleased with the performance of the vehicle. Rented enterperise in the past and also had good service.
