    Top ways to enter Toronto

    • Toronto Pearson Airport. With 49.5 million travelers served in 2018, Pearson is the busiest airport in Canada and among the busiest in all of the Americas. The airport is a large hub for Air Canada and is also served by tens of other airlines. Located about 26 km (16 mi) northwest of the city center, the airport can be reached in 25 minutes.
    • Toronto Billy Bishop Airport. The other, much smaller airport serving Toronto is served by three airlines. In addition to providing many domestic connections, the airport also hosts flights to and from Boston, Chicago, and Washington, D.C., in the United States. Located on one of the Toronto Islands, the airport is just 3.5 km (2.2 mi) south of the city center and can be reached in ten minutes.
    •  
    • Ottawa Airport: Serving Canada’s capital city, Ottawa Macdonald-Cartier Airport handled 5.1 million travelers in 2018. The airport has flights to and from many destinations in Canada, as well as Cuba, Jamaica, the United Kingdom, and other countries. Located 438 km (272 mi) northeast of Toronto, the airport can be reached in 4 hours and 20 minutes.
    • Buffalo Niagara Airport: Located just on the other side of the border in the U.S. state of New York, Buffalo Niagara Airport handled five million travelers in 2018. The airport has flights to and from destinations all over U.S., as well as Cancun in Mexico. Located just 175 km (109 mi) southeast of Toronto, Buffalo Airport can be reached in about two hours. You’ll have to cross an international border, so make sure in advance your rental car provider permits it (alternatively, you can travel by public transportation and pick up a rental car after arriving in Toronto). Also, make sure you don’t need a visa to enter either the U.S. or Canada.
    • By rail: If you’re arriving in Toronto by train, you can conveniently pick up your rental car at the Toronto Union Railway Station.

    Useful city facts

    • Although Canada’s capital is Ottawa, Toronto is the most populous city not only in Ontario Province, but in all of the country. The city has a population of about 2.7 million, with 3.2 million more living in Toronto metropolitan area. Golden Horseshoe, an even larger, densely populated region in Southern Toronto that includes Toronto, is home to 9.2 million people or about every fourth inhabitant of Canada.
    • Toronto has a humid continental climate with hot summers and cold winters. The average high temperature is 26.6 °C (79.9 °F) in July, the warmest month, and -0.7 °C (30.7 °F) in January, the coldest. September is the rainiest month while March is the driest. Toronto experiences, on average, 41 snowy days per year.
    • With 47% of Toronto inhabitants born outside Canada, Toronto is one of the most ethnically diverse cities in the world. Toronto is home to some of the largest Chinese, Irish, Filipino, and Italian diasporas in the world, something that can be observed in many cultural centers, restaurants, and languages spoken in the city.

    Top destinations and activities

    1. Art Gallery of Ontario. The largest gallery in Canada mostly focuses on works by well-known and contemporary Canadian artists, but it also houses paintings by classical European masters like Ruben.
    2. Black Creek Pioneer Village. Thoughtfully recreated, Black Creek Pioneer Village is a place where you can see what life was like in the 19th-century Ontario and to observe the architecture of that age.
    3. CN Tower. The tallest in North America, CN Tower is a great place to start (or finish) your vacation in Toronto. Going to its top in a glass elevator is a stunning experience, and the view from up there makes the rest of the city look tiny.

    Traffic and parking tips

    • The speed limits vary between different roads. The general limits are 90 km/h to 110 km/h on motorways and outside cities and from 30 km/h to 50 km/h inside cities.
    • The legal alcohol limit is 0.05%. Driving under influence exceeding the limit is a criminal offence and can lead to hefty fines, a driving ban, and even imprisonment.
    • The insurance and car documentation needs to be in the car whenever you’re driving.
    • If you’re the driver, you need to have your passport or ID card with you at all times.
    • Using the mobile phone while driving is prohibited. The rule is strictly imposed with high fines.
    • The phone number for emergencies is 112.

    Toll roads

    There are a number of toll roads in Canada. 

    Ontario Highway 407 is toll road for which you can only pay electronically. As you will be driving a rental car, the bill will be automatically sent to your rental car provider. The exact fee will depend on how long will you drive along this road. Some rental providers do include an additional toll charge fee. Do get in touch with your rental car provider in advance to find out more. Visit the official Highway 407 website to find out more information about fees and payment methods.

    Highway 412 is another toll road in Ontario. It is part of the same toll system as the Highway 407. The exact fee will depend on the time of the day and the day of the week of your travel, as well as the length of your travel along this road. 

    There are some other toll roads in Ontario. Do look them up in advance depending on your planned route. 

    In the rest of Canada, payment method and fees differ for different toll roads. It is best to look them up in advance, finding the information for each province in which you plan to travel. You can also use a toll calculator to calculate the approximate fees for your upcoming ride.

    Ideas for a day-trip

    • Niagara Region. The famous Niagara Falls is just a tad more than an hour's drive away from Toronto, but you might be tempted to also visit the surrounding nature areas, vineyards, and the cozy town of Niagara-on-the Lake.
    • Stratford. This town in Perth County that's about two hours drive west of Toronto has a population of just over 30,000 inhabitants, but it is home to the famous Stratford Shakespeare Festival that lasts all the way from April to November. If you're a classic literature lover, time your travels accordingly.
    • Ottawa. Canada's capital is about for to five hours drive away, so this one's probably a two-day trip, but this underrated city makes a great travel destination thanks to the combination of beautiful architecture and relaxed atmosphere.
    • Detroit. The famous Motor City is only a four hour drive from Toronto. It's possible to drive to Windsor and cross the border into the city on foot from there. 
    • Linocln. One might not think of Canada as a producer of wine, but Lincoln, just outside of Toronto, sits at the heart of valleys with many wineries, most of which have tasting rooms. 

    Most popular rental types and cars

    The most popular rental car type in Canada is an economy, but fullsize and intermediate are also often picked. The most popular rental cars are the Kia Rio, the Jeep Wrangler, and the Nissan Rogue.

    Further destinations

    • Montreal. Canada's second largest city is sometimes considered Toronto's rival, so why not travel there to make up your own mind? Competition aside, this bilingual metropolis is as unique a destination as Toronto in terms of history, arts, and atmosphere.
    • Northern Ontario. The sparsely populated north of the province doesn't see as many tourists as the big cities in the south, but it's impressive nature areas will convince anyone that you don't need to go to Yukon to see Canada at its wildest.
    • USA. Detroit and Michigan is just a couple of hours drive away, but with a rental car you can also easily reach other famous cities like Chicago, Boston, and New York. Note that you'll have to cross the national border to visit U.S., so do get in touch with your rental car provider in advance to find out if they permit it. Also, make sure your entry documents are in order.

    Go to one of the established companies and check that they have an office at the airport, not off site. Definitely hire a car if you're expecting to stay outside the city or travel around as public transport is poor outside the city.

    I would (and did) avoid driving IN Toronto. Downtown & freeways leading downtown were pretty treacherous: a lot of other aggressive traffic, narrow downtown roads with vehicles parked roadside, lots of foot & bike traffic, electric street cars & buses. Not to mention parking. If downtown, I just Ubered or took public transport. I rented primarily because I needed an easy way to get to Ottawa after a few days in Toronto. Driving in Ottawa was easy and very comfortable. Otherwise: the car drove well, was in excellent condition and the staff were helpful, friendly and courteous.

    In the Winter in Canada certainly try to rent an AWD or 4wd Vehicle. Routes car hire certainly has the best of those vehicles, being brand new Jeep Wranglers which are top of the range. Drive steady in the snow in Canada and you should be ok. Fuel is cheap and there is no need to worry about the type of vehicle rented by the hirer. Pre book through a company like "Discover Car Hire" which would get you a good deal with companies like "Routes Car Hire".
