SIXT Services in Canada

Our Canadian branches have a lot to offer. Choose from car rental categories like sedans, station wagons, SUVs, vans and luxury models. If you need something hardy enough to traverse the mountain landscapes, pick up an SUV. If you plan to zip through cities like Vancouver or Toronto, a compact car will be more up your alley. Whether you need a long-term rental in Canada or just a one-day rental, we have you covered. You can also customize your car rental in Canada with bookable add-ons such as GPS navigation, child seats, an additional driver and more.

Best Places to Visit in Canada

Vancouver: Vancouver is one of the most popular destinations in Canada. This city is perched on the Pacific Coast so it is home to both shoreline and mountains. Within the city, be sure to visit Granville Island and the Vancouver Art Gallery. Then, drive north into the mountains. Visit Grouse Mountain, a skiing hub in the winter and a beautiful hiking destination in the summer.

Toronto: This city on the shores of Lake Erie is home to the iconic CN Tower and the Royal Ontario Museum. Toronto is also just a short drive away from Niagara Falls, an attraction that draws visitors from around the world. So, be sure not to miss it.

Montreal: Located in French-speaking Quebec, Montreal is a unique destination, full of beauty and culture. You will want to visit the Notre-Dame Basilica of Montreal, the Jean Talon Market, and the Montreal Botanical Garden. Head out to St. Helens Island for a thrill at La Ronde.

Summer in Canada

There are plenty of things to do in Canada in summer. Hit the beach in destinations like Vancouver, Quebec and Newfoundland. This is also the perfect time to go hiking in the mountains, which you can find in almost every Canadian province. The summer is also a good time to visit northern Yukon, as the temperatures will not be as cold as they are in the winter and the natural landscape is incredible.

Winter in Canada

Winter temperatures in Canada can be frigid, especially in the northern part of the country. But this is good for winter sports enthusiasts. Head to Vancouver to go skiing or snowshoeing in the nearby mountains like at the ski resorts in Whistler. Or, if you would like to stay inside, head to Vancouver, Toronto, Montreal or Winnipeg to visit the cultural institutions and explore the art scene. Dogsledding is also popular in Canada, and this is also the best time to try and spot the Northern Lights.
