Toronto Pearson International Airport Guide

Car Hire

Toronto Airport, also known as Toronto Pearson International Airport, is perfectly located to serve the Toronto, Ontario, area of Canada. This stunning corner of the country is popular with tourists as it boasts both thriving urban cities and wild outdoors. There are a number of public services leading to and from the airport, but car hire in Toronto Airport is the best way to set your own schedule. It allows you to see and experience the areas of Ontario that aren’t covered by public transport.

Who to Book With
There are a wide range rental companies available for passengers to choose from at the airport. International companies such as Avis, Enterprise, Budget and Hertz sit alongside Dollar, Thrifty and National, also known as Alamo. All of these firms can be contacted in advance or on arrival.

Need to Know Essentials
In order to collect a pre-booked vehicle, you will need to present the following documents:

- A valid driver’s licence
- The credit card used to make the reservation
- A passport and proof of address
- The booking confirmation email or reference number

For more info read our FAQ's.

Driving
The main difference between driving in the UK and driving in Canada is that driving in the latter is on the right-hand side. As with the UK, safety-belts are required by law for all passengers sitting in the front of the vehicle. Children under the age of three must use a child seat. Rental agencies can provide these on request. Drink-driving with a blood alcohol content over 0.08 per cent is against the law and breaking this law can result in either a hefty fine or even licence suspension. Turning right on a red light is legal, but it’s best to avoid this when new to driving in Canada. All roads tend to be well maintained and signposted, but a road map is recommended for long journeys.

See our Canada guide for more tips on driving here.

Transport

With no train links to the airport, passengers are left to choose between either taxis or buses if they opt not to rent a vehicle. Bus services are frequent; however, they do not run through the night. Taxis have set fares and are easy to organise but do not typically serve destinations far from the airport.

Trains
The LINK Train offers 24-hour rail transport from Terminal 1 (Level 5), Terminal 3 (Sheraton hotel pedestrian bridge) and two of the airport’s car parks (Value Park Garage and Viscount Station Value Park Lot) every 3.5 or 7 minutes.

Taxis
Taxi ranks are located outside each terminal (Terminal 1 Domestic, Area 1; Terminal 2 International, Area D1; Terminal 3 Domestic, Post 11; and Terminal 4 International, Post 31). Due to recent increases in petrol charges, some taxis now request a fuel surcharge on top of the fare. A number of local companies service the airport but fares are all the same. Additionally, limousines and minibuses are available for hire.

Taxi prices:
Toronto Airport to Brampton is about £30
Toronto Airport to Toronto city centre is about £35
Toronto Airport to Hamilton is about £80

Buses
There is an array of services running from the airport’s bus station outside to a number of destinations in the area. The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) runs the majority of the services. Prices vary depending on the destination and services stop at around 23:00. Other bus providers include Brampton Transit, GO Transit and Mississauga Transit. The Western Pacific Airport Express is a coach service from the airport to downtown Toronto.

The first three lots are within walking distance of terminals 1 and 3, while the Value Park lots are served by free Link Train every 3.5 or 7 minutes. Prices start at £2 for 20 minutes.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.
Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest? Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town. What do I need to do when picking up a car? To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient. Are there any additional costs? In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance). What kind of insurance is applicable to my car rental? In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car. What is a worry-free label? This label indicates that a rental car satisfies the following requirements: Unlimited kilometers, no excess liability (and no excess cover available), sustainable energy policy, and that the car rental company has a good reputation. Availability of cars satisfying these four requirements will speed up the selection of a suitable vehicle for you. How can I change or cancel my reservation? You can cancel your reservation through "My Account". We recommend contacting us by phone if your changes to your booking or cancellation takes place at short notice (48 hours or less). When will I get a confirmation of my booking? Most reservations will receive confirmation within minutes after payment takes place. We recommend contacting our Booking Department for last minute reservations (pick-up within 48 hours). Which car rental companies are compared by Carrentals.co.uk? at this location
