Ottawa Car Rental Reviews

Wendy L.
October 9, 2018
Ottawa is a fantastic destination. A car is handy for side trips to places like the Gatineau or Merrickville
Katherine J.
September 20, 2018
Did not see much of Ottawa as we were just visiting family there. We drove about an hour away visiting Perth, Newboro and Elgin and other areas in the Rideau Lakes district. We really enjoyed the beauty of the countryside. We had our folding bikes along enabling us to enjoy part of the Cataraqui trail (former railbed). It was a very good experience.
