Montreal-Trudeau International Airport is a large Canadian airport serving Greater Montreal, and the northern regions of Vermont and New York. The airport is only 20km from downtown Montreal, and in the area of Dorval. It used to be called the Dorval Airport, and many still use this name for the airport, but its official name is now the Montreal-Pierre Elliott Trudeau Airport. It is also recognised by its code of YUL. To reach Montreal from the airport, passengers can take buses or taxis, or they can rent a car from one of the Montreal-Trudeau Airport car hire companies, such as Enterprise. Enterprise is one of the largest providers of car rental services in North America, and can be trusted to offer excellent car hire rates.
Although the airport’s car hire companies are not found within the terminal, they are within walking distance of all facilities. The rental counters of Enterprise are found on the ground floor of the parking garage in front of the terminal, and their cars are parked nearby. There are also signs that lead the way to the car rental counters. The entire airport is accessible to disabled passengers. Enterprise at this rental location is open from 06:00 to 23:59, Monday to Friday, and from 07:00 to 23:59 on weekends. Find out from Enterprise their specific hours of operation on bank holidays. Their cars are recommended to be hired in advance, as the smaller and cheaper vehicle models could be in high demand, and there could be fewer of the larger and more elegant vehicle types available. Online reservations are considered best, as they are convenient, and could result in cheaper car rental rates.
During the process of reservation, it is also wise to include additional items of equipment needed for travelling in Montreal and the surrounding areas, and they could be child seats, satellite navigation systems, luggage racks and/or snow tires. Snow tires are often a mandatory requirement for vehicles hired in Montreal during the winter. The other items are not compulsory, but it is required by law in Canada for all in a vehicle to wear seatbelts, therefore a child seat will be essential for the younger members of your family. A GPS can be extremely useful to those who are unfamiliar with the area, and come pre-programmed with thousands of points of interest. Enterprise hand controls for disabled drivers is another device possible for hire, and is used by persons with a lower limb disability in need of a vehicle from Montreal-Trudeau Airport. Hand controls are, however, free of charge.
Enterprise has car rental locations at most major airports in Canada, and rental offices in the United States, Germany, Ireland and the United Kingdom. They are also considered as one of the largest car rental firms in North America. Their cars in Canada have automatic transmissions, and are regularly checked for safety. They are also only of late models, and therefore in good condition. Vehicles should always be returned in the condition that they were rented, regardless of the return location. Enterprise one way hires allow the customer to deliver the vehicle to a different rental location, and therefore eliminates the need to drive back to Montreal-Trudeau Airport. One way hire services, as well as cross-border rentals (cars travelling into the United States) could have extra charges. They may need to be reserved in advance as well.
Enterprise Montreal-Trudeau International Airport has car groups such as Economy, Compact, Intermediate, Standard, Fullsize, Luxury, SUV and Minivan, and each category has a selection of similar vehicles. The Suzuki Swift is an Economy car, the Nissan Versa is a Compact and the Dodge Caliber and Ford Focus are examples of cars in the Intermediate category. Standard and Fullsize cars are larger, and similar to the Ford Fusion, Hyundai Sonata, Chevy Impala and Nissan Altima, while Premium and Luxury cars include the Buick Allure, Chrysler 300 and the Buick Lucerne. Luxury cars are often hired by business professionals who need a more elegant vehicle for transport.
The Ford Escape and Jeep Liberty of two of Enterprise’s Intermediate SUVs for five passengers, and the Ford Explorer and Chevy Trailblazer are Standard SUVs. For seven people, the Luxury SUVs of the Lincoln Navigator and Cadillac Escalade are available, as well as Large SUVs such as the Chevy Tahoe and Ford Expedition. Further vehicles for hire from the Montreal-Trudeau Airport car rental companies are the Chrysler Town and Country, Dodge Grand Caravan, Chevy Colorado, Dodge Dakota, Chevy Silverado and the Ford F150.
In Canada, all cars are driven on the right-hand side of the road, and there are road rules similar to many other countries, such as speed limits to follow and no drunken driving permitted. The speed limits are, in general, no more than 30mph or 50kph in urban areas, 63mph or 100kph on open roads and 81mph or 130kph on motorways and highways. Montreal can be travelled quite easily, and has parking areas along most streets. There could also be larger parking lots in certain areas. When you collect your vehicle from Enterprise Montreal-Trudeau Airport, bring along your valid drivers license and major credit card.
