Transport Canada has announced that, beginning June 1, 2012, Canadian residents will be able to bring U.S. rental vehicles into Canada for non-commercial use for 30 days or less. Right now, Canadian residents aren't allowed to bring U.S. rental cars into Canada. This might not sound like a big deal, but in certain circumstances it could come in handy. If your car breaks down or if your flight is cancelled at the last minute are two situations when you might want to rent a car to get home.
Changes are also coming to eliminate taxes on these vehicles for Canadians who have been outside of Canada for at least 48 hours.
Visitors to Canada will continue to be allowed to bring rental vehicles from the United States into Canada.
Be sure to check with the rental car agency for more details and to get permission to take their rental out of the U.S.
