KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Markham

  • When you hire a car in Markham, you gain access to the exciting areas that surround the city. If you are visiting the area for the first time, one of the first things that has to be on your bucket list is a day trip to the exciting city of Toronto, only 20 miles away from the centre of Markham. Booking car hire in Markham is far easier than working out the public transport system and gives you more freedom than relying only on taxis. You can also take a drive out to the stunning areas that surround Markham, with the likes of Lake Simcoe only 55 miles away.
  • Billy Bishop Toronto City (YTZ) Airport is the nearest airport to Markham and is the ideal location to book your Markham car hire. The airport has many international car hire branches, which offer an array of car models for your trip to the Canadian city. Because the airport is only 17 miles away from the Markham city centre, you can pick up your car for car hire in Markham from the airport when you land and be at your accommodation in no time. This will also save you the time it takes to look for a taxi or figure out which train or bus to take.
  • Driving in Markham is much like driving in any Canadian city’s suburb. Markham is an industrial city with many warehouses and distribution centres. Therefore, there are many trucks on the road at any given time. The main junction to get into the city consists of highways 404 and 407, where the main exits are for you to reach your final Markham destination. It’s worth knowing which exit you need to take, as there are several to choose from, which can be difficult to identify at speed. You'll be able to pick up your hire vehicle from the Arrivals terminal.
  • The town centre of Markham is relatively industrial, and therefore you can expect to share the road with much larger vehicles. However, the more suburban areas are a mix of boutique shops and bars. Here, you must watch for people walking between these types of establishments. The road rules in Markham are also very strict. Drivers who are not used to road laws should familiarise themselves beforehand to avoid getting any unexpected speeding or traffic fines.
  • Book your car hire in Markham at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Mini hire cars in Markham are around 50% more expensive than other car types, on average

  • What type of car is recommended for driving in Markham?

    For exploring the city of Markham and other surrounding urban areas, a standard small vehicle is more than sufficient. The roads in Markham and other nearby towns are well-maintained, and you won't have to worry about your car becoming damaged because of potholes or other issues relating to road upkeep. However, if you plan on making more of a nature holiday during your trip to Markham, something like an SUV or 4x4 may be more appropriate for your needs. You will also need to consider a larger vehicle if you travel with a group of people.

  • What’s the speed limit in Markham?

    As a general rule, anyone driving in Markham centre and in the residential areas should assume that the speed limit is 40 km/h, which is roughly 25 mph. This is the speed limit that applies in most areas of the city. Other main roads may increase the speed limit to 50 km/h, roughly 31 mph. You must stick to these limits when you drive the vehicle you booked car hire in Markham.

  • Where are the best places to park in Markham?

    Before you book your accommodation, you should make sure that the facility has somewhere where you can leave your vehicle overnight. This will ensure that your vehicle is safe and will help you avoid any additional cost implications surrounding theft or damage. When in the city, you can park your car at 214 Main St N Parking, 1070 Major Mackenzie Dr E Parking, or 100 Renfrew Dr Car Park. There are plenty of spaces to park in Markham, and parking should not cost you more than 7 CAD, which is roughly 5 GBP.

We were asked to come back 1 hour later as the car wasn't there/cleaned yet. When we returned the car was cleaned but not on the inside, mud and dog hair on the seats. Disgusting. The guy at the counter dared warn us that we would be charged if we would have a dog in the car.
