Driving and renting a vehicle in Canada in Winter?

Firstly, to rent a car in Canada you need to be 21 years old and you’ll pay a young renters’ premium up to the age of 25. Winter in Canada can have hazardous driving conditions with snow, black ice, and frequent hazards. Be sure to check the driving conditions before departing which includes possible road closures. Winter tires are recommended and required by law in some regions and mountain passes, but beware: renting a car in winter doesn’t mean it comes with winter tires, you will need to request these tires at the time of booking your rental and pay a premium.
