Montreal-Trudeau Airport is also known as the Montreal-Pierre Elliot Trudeau International Airport, after a former Canadian Prime Minister, and was formerly known as the Montreal-Dorval Airport, due to its location in Dorval. The airport serves Greater Montreal, as well as regions of northern Vermont and New York. Montreal Airport is recognized by its official code of YUL, and is the third busiest airport in Canada in terms of passenger traffic. Arriving passengers can rent a car from one of the Montreal-Trudeau Airport car hire companies, such as Hertz. Hertz is one of the best options for business or leisure car rentals, as they have many years of experience in the car rental industry.
Montreal-Trudeau International Airport consists of a large terminal building divided into three concourses known as A, B and C. A is the domestic terminal of the airport, B is used for international fights and C is dedicated to flights which are U.S. bound. The public arrivals area is equipped with a variety of useful facilities, including an information counter, a foreign exchange office, an ATM, mini-market and café/bar. Arriving passengers will also find the Montreal-Trudeau Airport car rental companies nearby, on the ground floor of the multi-level parking garage in front of the terminal. The car rental companies, including Hertz, are within easy walking distance, and the cars for rent are parked close to the terminal as well. Passengers will therefore not require the services of a shuttle in order to reach the Hertz rental counters.
Montreal city is large and considered as the second biggest city in Canada. It is therefore ideal to have a rented car in which to visit all the attractions, or a car that will take you to the necessary places of business. The cities of Canada are relatively easy to navigate by car, as they have an excellent road network and clear signposts. However, a satellite navigation from Hertz will help tremendously with directions to where you need to go. The Hertz NeverLost In-Car Navigation System is a state-of-the-art device with a colour-touch screen, a choice of languages and thousands of pre-programmed points of interest. Although it will cost a few extra dollars to hire, it will be worth the money spent. Child seats are also available from Hertz, for infants and older children, and are essential for the safety of younger family members. Child seats and satellite navigation systems are best reserved in advance of your arrival at Montreal Airport.
Vehicles from Hertz are also recommended to be reserved early, as car hire at this airport location can be in high demand. Another item that will require an advanced reservation is Hertz hand controls for disabled drivers. This device is ideally used by persons with a lower limb disability, as it operates the brake and accelerator pedals of automatic vehicles. Only certain vehicles are used, and it will need to be fitted prior to your arrival at Montreal-Trudeau Airport. Hand controls from Hertz are free of charge. Disabled persons unable to drive a vehicle can also still be the primary renter of a car from Hertz, by having an additional driver who is physically able. This additional driver is free of charge as well.
Hertz Montreal-Trudeau Airport has a large variety of cars for rent. They are arranged in various categories, including Standard Cars, 4WD/SUV/Minivan and Convertible. Smaller cars from Hertz are similar to the Kia Rio, Hyundai Accent and Nissan Sentra, while larger choices include the Dodge Avenger, Chevrolet Impala, Buick Lucerne and Volvo S80. The Lincoln Towncar is another popular choice for a more elegant vehicle. SUVs and Minivans can also be ideal for travelling the area of Montreal. The Dodge Grand Caravan, GM Tahoe, GM Suburban and Lincoln Navigator can all seat up to seven passengers, while SUVs for five include the Ford Escape and Jeep Grand Cherokee. Should you require a convertible, Hertz offers the Ford Mustang Convertible and the Volvo C70, or similar.
Most of the Hertz rental cars can be hired by persons 21 years of age or older, but certain larger vehicles may only be available to persons 25 and older. It is the case in most countries, including Canada, that persons younger than 25 pay higher rental rates, for young drivers insurance. Hertz customers will also require a valid drivers license and major credit card for their rental, and possibly other documents, such as a passport if from a foreign country, and a return airline ticket. It best to confirm with Hertz in advance of all the documents that will be required for your rental.
Return your vehicle to Montreal-Trudeau Airport when the contract has expired, and at the correct time to avoid extra charges, unless a Hertz one way hire has been arranged. The Hertz Rent-It-Here and Leave-It-There service is sometimes convenient, as it allows the rented car to be returned to another rental location. Cross-border rentals may also be permitted from Hertz Montreal-Trudeau Airport. One way hire services and cross-border rentals may be more expensive than an ordinary hire. Contact Hertz for all further details required, or book online for the best car rental rates.
