Your health and safety are of the utmost importance to us.

If you do travel, we want you to be as safe as possible while doing so. Thus, we have added information in our search results letting you know which rental companies are disinfecting their vehicles to prevent the spread of the virus.

We understand your need for flexibility.

We’d like to tell you that we’ve become more flexible, but the truth is that we were always flexible. If you need to change the dates of your rental or you decide to travel somewhere else, you can modify your booking in the My Booking section without charge (although the rental price may change).

Toronto Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Pick up a rental car at Toronto Pearson International Airport! Then go for a drive through Toronto’s neighborhoods. Make sure you check out the beautiful architecture downtown and don’t forget to visit some art galleries and museums like the Royal Ontario Museum or the Ontario Science Center.

There’s always a lot going on in Toronto—countless concerts, films, performances, and festivals. And thanks to its authentic Korean, Indian, Ukrainian, and Chinese restaurants (and many more!), this is where you’ll find some of the best food in North America.

Toronto’s a great place to visit, but the surrounding region has even more to offer, so why not get a rental car for a longer period? You can go to Niagara Falls or Montreal, drive to nearby American cities like Detroit or New York City, or even explore the Canadian north. Picking up your rental car at Toronto Airport and dropping it off in a different location is easy. So start planning your adventure now!

Car rental desks

The desks of Alamo and National are located on level 1 of the parking garages net to both Terminal 1 and Terminal 3.

Ace, Discount, Economy, Europcar, Green Motion, Mex, Nu, Surprice, Swift and Zoom provide shuttle services to their respective locations near the airport. Make sure to leave more time to pick up your rental car if using one of these companies.

Services and facilities

You’ll find a wide array of restaurants, cafeterias, and bars, a duty-free shopping area and other stores, an international currency exchange bureau with an ATM, a number of lounges, a lost and found service, a medical clinic, pharmacy, interfaith centers, an art gallery, and several exhibition spaces. The luggage storage service, called Excess Baggage, is on level 1 of Terminal 1. Wheelchair and mobility assistance is available but should be arranged in advance with the help of your airline. You can find more information on the airport's official website.

Nearest gas station

A Shell station is located right next to the airport at 5869 Airport Road. It takes about one minute to reach the airport from it and it is open 24/7. This is the most convenient station for those returning cars at the airport. Those returning cars to off-airport rental locations will find other gas stations more convenient. For example, there are two stations, a Shell and an Esso, at the intersection where Routes Car Rental is located (Derry Rd. and Rexwood Rd.).

If renting from Surprice, a Mobil station a block north of Surprice’s location on Highway 27 is convenient to fill up at before dropping off your rental car.

Zoom, which also services a Mex Rent a Car and Nu Car Rentals, is located right next to a Canadian Tire Gast + station. There is also a Husky station across the street.

Green Motion is located further north along the same street (Dixie Road) and is right next to another station, an Esso station in this case.

Finally, Discount and Ace are located very close to the airport across from the Toronto Congress Centre. A Shell station can be found 100 meters to the east along the same road (Dixon Road).

Car is really useful depending on the type of travel you wish to do. Tips would be to travel off rush hour, and some defensive driving tips for the major highways. QEW, 401 and other roads can be challenging for people not used to these types of roads, and the style of driving with all the collector lanes. Having GPS on your phone is a huge asset.
