Can I get an RV with automatic transmission?

Yes. Currently, all Canadian rental RVs compared on our site have automatic transmission. For other locations, you can filter the search results to show manual or automatic vehicles only.

Where can I camp in Canada?

Canada has many camping options – public campgrounds, national parks, and private campgrounds are all plentiful and range from $10 to $80/night. Camping in the wild is not recommended, but you are permitted to camp overnight in roadside rest areas unless it’s posted otherwise.

What is the minimum age to drive an RV?

The standard minimum age to rent an RV is 21, though some companies require the driver to be 23 or 25. A higher deposit or surcharges may be charged for drivers younger than 25.

What happens if I cancel my booking?

Cancellation fees vary by supplier. As a general rule, the closer you are to the time of travel, the higher your cancel fees will be. In case of cancellation, the booking deposit will also be non-refundable.

What happens if the vehicle breaks down or I have an accident during my trip?

The rental company will provide you with a procedure of steps to take in case of an emergency, including an emergency phone number.

Place Jacques-Cartier

Serving as an entry to the city’s old port, Place Jacques-Cartier has been a center of city life for over two centuries. After an early 19th-century chateau burned down, a public square with an original title of New Market Place was established.

Renamed in 1847 for the explorer who claimed Canada for France, the square connects the waterfront to City Hall and hosts various seasonal vendors, as well as many popular eateries. Interestingly, the monument at the western end – Montreal’s oldest – is of the English admiral, Lord Horatio Nelson.
