Am I able To Take The Rental Out Of My Province Or Country?

Yes. Please let us know at time of rental pick up or reservation, so we can add the appropriate coverage to your rental agreement. A nominal daily fee will apply for out of province or country rentals to cover increased liability.

Am I Responsible For Refuelling?

All renters are responsible for the cost of refuelling. We recommend you refuel the vehicle within 5 Km of the rental branch and present your fuel receipt upon return to avoid any refuelling charges.

Are Additional Drivers Allowed?

Please note: Failure to formally add a driver to your rental agreement voids the terms and conditions of the rental agreement.

What Should I Do If I’m Involved In An Accident?

First be sure to contact any emergency services if injuries are involved. If not, contact the police to complete an accident report and immediately. Be sure to collect as much information from all parties involved in the accident, such as driver’s licence, insurance policy number and names of witnesses. Take photos of the vehicle immediately. Accidents must be reported to our office within 24 hours, we will give you further instructions once you contact us.

Do I need To Sign A Collision Loss Damage Waiver?

We offer CDW (Collision Loss Damage Waiver) at a flat daily rate. Collision Loss Damage Waiver (CDW) is offered by The Car Rental Place to all of our customers to minimize your financial responsibility from any damage as a result of an accident to the rental vehicle. The Car Rental Place waives all or part (as indicated on the rental agreement at time of rental) of the customer's liability for damages to the vehicle provided the terms and conditions of the rental agreement are not violated.

Our PAI protects you from the most frequent car rental incidents and damages.
PAI advantages:

  • Plus emergency roadside assistance.

Please inquire at the counter at time rental.

What If I'm Fined For Traffic and Toll Violations or Red-Light Camera Violations?

The renter of the vehicle is liable for all parking tickets, traffic violations, red-light camera violations and 407 ETR driving. Once we receive the violation or toll charge in the mail we will pay it immediately on your behalf to reduce incurring any rising ticket costs. We will then bill your credit card for the ticket amount, plus an administration charge of $50.00 per infraction..

I had a very good experience renting a car here. They picked me up from my mechanic's shop and dropped me off back at my car when the repair was complete. The Corolla they rented to me was brand new, clean and had more options than a base model. The price was more competitive than most of the other car rental companies on Dufferin St.

I’ve been renting 12 passenger vans from here twice a year for a few years. Every experience has been good. A quick call to set up the reservation, the vehicle is ready right at open, and it’s always clean and well maintained. I can drop off after hours. The people are good to deal with. I recommend the Car Rental Place.
