Kayak's description AND the confirmation both say that the Europcar location is in the Ottawa airport, but this is a total lie. It is FAR away and requires travelers to call for a shuttle, which takes 15 minutes to get there. I waited outside in freezing Ottawa for a van to take me another 15 minutes away to a ROUTES(!!!) rental location. I SPECIFICALLY didn't want a Routes car because they suck as a rental agency. I then had to sign a million pieces of paper like it was 1985 and waited an obscene amount of time in an ugly rental agency. I consider this entire experience to be a scam due to the false advertising. To add insult to injury, there was a no refund/no cancelation policy. I feel duped by Kayak and this rental agency. I will literally never rent a car from Europcar or Routes in my life again. I would rather Uber everywhere even if it cost 50 times more than the price of a rental.Reviewed Dec 3 2023

Top tips for renting a car from Europcar in Ottawa

  • Ottawa might not land at the top of the list of Canadian cities with the worst traffic, but it’s firmly in the top ten. Ottawa rush hour traffic, in particular, puts it in the top five, which is something you’ll want to keep in mind when you book Europcar car rentals in Ottawa. You might be tempted to rent something like an SUV so that you can stretch out. But a compact car, or at least a car that’s somewhat on the smaller side, might make it so much easier for you to navigate your way through traffic in Ottawa.
  • When you reserve a car rental through Europcar when you’re visiting Ottawa, they’ll do their best to get you behind the wheel of a car that’s going to work well for you. If you’re traveling alone and want to be able to work your way out of traffic quickly, a compact car might be your best choice. But you can also secure a standard-size car or an SUV. The rental car you end up in will be based upon availability to some degree, but Europcar can work to hold a vehicle for you if they have one once you let them know what you would like to drive.
  • Most of the cities in Canada are on the larger side, but Ottawa is especially big. It’s almost 1,100 square miles.
