National Ottawa Macdonald Cartier International Airport
Ottawa International Airport is one of the largest airports in Canada, with over four million passengers per annum. It is found quite nearby the city of Ottawa, and in the Riverside South area. The airport is also one of the largest in the province of Ontario. Another name commonly used for Ottawa Airport is the Macdonald-Cartier International Airport, in honour of John A. Macdonald and George-Etienne Cartier. The airport is also recognised by its IATA code of YOW. The airport’s car hire companies include National Ottawa International Airport, and National is one of the most important car rental organisations in the world. National is also preferred for business car rentals.
Ottawa International Airport has a single passenger terminal that can be considered as quite new, since that it was built in 2003. Since then, several expansion works have continued, ensuring that the airport is sufficient in size and capacity for its growing passenger numbers. The airport is well equipped with facilities that include automatic bank tellers, business meeting rooms, currency exchange services, tourism and general information counters, baggage storage facilities and a large number of airport shops and restaurants. Although the airport car hire companies, including National, are not found in the terminal, they are within easy walking distance of the airport’s facilities, as they are located in the Parkade, just across the street from the terminal building. National can be found here, along with Alamo, Hertz, Avis, Auto Europa, Budget and Enterprise.
The Ottawa International Airport car hire companies are not open twenty-four hours a day, but they are open every day of the week, and at hours which are convenient for the majority of passengers on arrival flights. National’s hours of operation are from 06:30 to 23:59 on weekdays, and on weekends from 07:00 to 23:59. They may also be open later, but sometimes additional charges will be applicable for services out of their conventional hours of operation. At many airports, passengers may return their vehicle out-of-office hours at no extra charge, as there are key boxes available. Confirm the procedure with National, but usually the vehicle keys and completed contract is placed in the key box after the vehicle has been parked and locked at the airport car rental parking area. National one way hires allow passengers to return their vehicle to a different rental location. This service can be convenient for some travel itineraries, but may be more costly. From Ottawa International Airport, one way hires may travel to any location in Canada, but a cross-border rental may be required if the vehicle will be driven to cities in the United States, such as Watertown, about 150km from the airport.
Upon hiring a vehicle, ensure that you meet the minimum age requirements for the National Ottawa Airport location, and that you have all further documents required. Customers will usually need to be 21 years of age or older to rent a car, and should have a valid drivers license and a credit card that is accepted by the car rental company. However, younger drivers will pay an additional amount per day of car hire for young driver fees, and this amount is applicable to all young drivers registered on the rental contract. It is automatically included in your rental rates. Although young drivers can usually rent smaller cars, they may often not be permitted to hire larger or specialty vehicles, such as convertibles, luxury models, SUVs and Minivans.
The vehicles hired by the Ottawa International Airport car rental companies are divided into various car groups, or categories. They are also priced and booked accordingly. The vehicles mentioned for each category are examples, and their luggage and passenger capacities should be used as a general guideline only, as they could vary with their manufacture. The more affordable cars from National are found in the Economy, Compact and Midsize categories, and may be similar to the Suzuki Swift, Nissan Versa and Dodge Caliber, while larger vehicles with a higher price tag can be hired from the categories of Standard, Fullsize, Premium, Luxury, Minivan and SUV. The Chevrolet Impala is a popular rental from the Fullsize category, and the Chrysler 300C is an ideal choice for renters who require a more elegant vehicle.
National’s larger vehicles can seat up to seven passengers, and are similar to the Dodge Grand Caravan, Chevrolet Tahoe and Chevrolet Suburban. There are also additional SUVs available, such as the Ford Escape, Ford Explorer and Ford Edge, with some nice features that include air conditioning, an automatic transmission, driver and passenger airbags and power mirrors. They can seat up to five passengers. National’s largest vehicle is the Chevrolet Express, for fifteen passengers. Pick-ups may also be available, such as the Chevrolet Colorado and Chevrolet Silverado. Regardless of the vehicle you hire, arrange for adequate vehicle insurance from National, and try to return the vehicle in the same condition as it was received. You may need to re-fuel the vehicle, if fuel was not purchased at the beginning of the rental period.
Along with the vehicle, hire additional items of equipment needed, such as child seats, booster seats, satellite navigation systems or luggage racks. National hand controls for disabled drivers may also be requested from Ottawa International Airport. Hand controls are free of charge, but child seats and all other items will cost a few extra Dollars per day of car hire, or per rental contract. Customers are recommended to hire their vehicle, and all equipment required, in advance, as the rental location of National Ottawa International Airport can be busy.
