KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Guelph

  • There's nothing better than having the freedom to set your own itinerary when visiting a foreign city by having your own car, rather than being subject to public transport timetables, routes and stops. That's the core advantage of booking car rental in Guelph. You'll also be able to visit places that public transport doesn't cover and enjoy sightseeing day trips to attractions like Rockwood Conservation Area. You can also take the 1 hour drive and visit Toronto.
  • If you're flying from India you'll most likely land at the nearest major international airport, which is Toronto Pearson Airport International Airport (YYZ). You won't have trouble organising car rental in Guelph from here. Several of the most prominent international brands have agencies at the airport. These are on Level 1 in the car parks of both Terminal 1 and 2, which are easily reached on foot from either Arrivals halls. It's just a matter of following the signs.
  • You can expect very pleasant driving conditions when you book car rental in Guelph. In the main, the pace is relaxed, with local drivers being rule observant and courteous. The road conditions are good, and you'll find it very orderly compared to back home. The city is safe to drive in at all times of the day. The downtown area is focused on walkability and pedestrian convenience, so drive slowly here and always be prepared to give way.
  • Guelph has grown significantly from the small town it once was, and the main difficulty you'll experience driving here is the density of the traffic. This is a factor at all times of the day, mainly due to the large number of traffic lights that aren't always properly sequenced. Locals say that a 10-minute drive can take 25 minutes or more as a result. Also look out for slow moving vehicles travelling around 20 km/h below the speed limit, as many locals are wont to do.
  • Book your rental car in Guelph at least 1 day before your trip in order to get a below-average price
  • Compact rental cars in Guelph are around 23% cheaper than other car types, on average

    This is a well-developed, modern city that doesn't require you to make any specific Guelph car hire choice. Get a vehicle that you're comfortable driving, with enough room for everyone. A city car or saloon will be more than adequate if you're going to spend most of your time in the downtown area and surrounding central neighbourhoods. The roads outside the city lend themselves well to road trips, in which case you might consider a roomier MPV if you're visiting with your family, or even a luxury or sports model if you really love driving.

    The speed limit in urban areas of Guelph is 50 km/h, unless the signage indicates otherwise.

On freeways, the speed limit is 100 km/h. Do pay attention to these regulations, as the local police are on the ball and might not be as forgiving as those back home.

    There are plenty of car parks in downtown Guelph, run by the municipality. They're open from 08:00 – 18:00 and all charge the same rate of about C$3.00 per hour (roughly ₹185), up to a maximum of around C$30.00 (about ₹1850) per day. These are the East and West Parkades (as car parks are known here), the Fountain Lot and the Market Parkade. On-street parking in central Guelph is free for up to 2 hours. Just note that you aren't allowed to leave a vehicle parked overnight in the downtown district.

I booked 3 weeks in advance and when I got there they didn’t have the right car. The one they gave me didn’t work in the snow, at all .. in January. I called the next day for another, got bounced around between agents, they didn’t have anything with snow tires, and when I finally got a half decent car they tried to double charge me … even after I got confirmation I wouldn’t be charged extra, they tried again at drop off. A huge scam company honestly … go elsewhere and if you have to rent from them, be ready to advocate for yourself.

Pros:

I had never heard of Driving Force before, but my fiancé had smashed our car & I needed to find us something to rent quickly after the insurance cut off our rental car. The service was a great price, especially for my last minute booking, the car was clean & new and the employees were polite & friendly. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend their company.

Cons:

The only negative part of the experience was that there was a tiny piece of glass on the floor in the back seat that hadn't been noticed before it was given to me. Other than that, the car had clearly just been detailed and cleaned very well.

Person at check out did not explain things in detail. I did hear the other company say to a guest they were checking in to look for dents and picture same to know they were there before we took the car. Good thing as the car had a large dent in rear passenger door. We did picture it and hopefully do not have any trouble with being charged for it.

4.4 Mediocre

Oct 2019

KAYAK

Pros:

The drop off was easy

Cons:

I feel that the booking online wasn’t clear. I thought the price I paid online was great, but when I showed up at the site, the insurance wasn’t included. (I thought I had paid for that online) There were people behind me and I didn’t have time then to check out other options, so I had to pay the current price they had for insurance, which pretty much doubled my price of the rental. So I wasn’t too pleased when I showed up to pick up the car and discovered my car rental cost pretty much doubled for the 5 days that I rented the car :(

Sep 2018

KAYAK

Pros:

We had a Chevy Impala. It was a nice drive

Cons:

Price was not what we were quoted - we changed pickup locations and the price jumped from $199CDN for three days to $288CDN for three days, but we were not informed of this until we were nearly finished with check in. This is an egregious oversight. Also, windows were dirty inside (foot prints on the passenger side windshield...). Pickup took a long time as they were quite busy with only two people working the counter. Very unhappy with all of the above, especially the attitude of the counter clerk when I questioned the price. He pointed to the computer screen and said this is what the contract says. I pointed to my printout and said this is what my contract says. Eventually we gave in because we needed transportation and we had a wedding to get to. We feel cheated.
