In addition, it will work out cheaper to book early as car rental companies increase prices as the cars start to sell out.

Dollar and other suppliers offer a good range of MPV's and people carriers. The Mitsubishi outlander will provide seating for 7. Please take note that luggage is fairly restricted in this category of minivan. If all 7 passengers were to have their own luggage, you would have a storage problem. Maybe booking the larger 8 seater van may help overcome luggage space issues. The 12 seater minivan would solve all your problems in this luggage department.

Recommended 7 seater car hire drives in Canada

Canada prides itself in being a large, extensive country that covers many different geographical landscapes. It also prides itself in having some of the most friendly people, hence why we love Canada so much. It is also the second-biggest country in the world, second to only Russia. This itself can help one understand the beauty and danger of reckless driving in Canada. You can truly explore the untouched wilderness, but with that fact comes great responsibility. Set out and explore Canada and its untouched beauty, but be careful and come well prepared. We have compiled some of our favourite drives in this gorgeous country, and we hope that you drive carefully through it! Don't forget your camera, lots of pictures to be taken!

Canadian Rockies:

A lot of drivers will start in Vancouver and then head to places like Ashcroft and Wells Gray Provincial Park while heading to the infamous Rocky Mountains. It is important to remember to fuel up before taking this long journey, as gas can be hard to come by if you're stranded in the middle of nowhere! Sometimes, it's over 100km before the next fuel stop. It is also best to prepare for winter when taking this drive, as weather can shift quite quickly. However, it is so worth it! The views that the Canadian Rockies provide are some of the best in the world, hence why so many people make this journey. You have a 1450 km drive that has four different parks (Jasper, Banff, Kootenay, and Yoho) that each provide unique mountain ranges.

Whistler:

Take the 125km Ski Highway into Shannon Falls and Stawamus Chief Rock and see the sight of the 2010 Winter Olympics. Over 2 million people a year head to this snowsport paradise on 8,171 acres of land and having 200 marked runs. This is a serious place for adventure enthusiasts! With the relative ease to get to, you must not skip out on this gorgeous drive. Even if you aren't a big snowsport enthusiast, you can still lay back and relax on the slopes for world-class views. Young or old, Whistler provides it. As you can tell, Canada loves their mountain and their snow!

Niagara Falls:

130kms out of the metropolitan area of Toronto is one of the world's greatest wonders. Niagara Falls pumps out 3,160 tons of water every second. Straddling the border of the USA and Canada is one of the most visited tourist attractions in the entire world and has three separate waterfalls. (The American Falls, Bridal Veil Falls, Horseshoe Falls). Most people complete this journey by taking the Maid on the Mist to get soaked by the spray. There is a reason why this has got tens of thousands of visitors each year, and still stands as one of Canada's most important attractions since 1846!


Best time to visit Canada

The summer months are the best, but if you go off season, then the price of car rental will be much cheaper.


Driving in Canada

Canada's driving can range from beginner to expert quite rapidly, even in major cities. For the most part, Canada is safe to drive in. However, it should be noted to watch out for wildlife jumping out in front of your vehicle – as it happens quite often. Also, winter can completely seize your engine as well as your tires getting stuck. When driving in winter conditions, it is best to have chains. Drinking and driving is a serious offence in Canada, so make sure you aren't over the legal limit. 120Km/h is the fastest you can go on any Canadian Highway, and if you are over 50km/h over the speed limit you can get your car impounded!

Speed limits:
Urban areas: 50kph.
National highways: 90kph.
Motorways: 120kph.
