Top 5 Van Rentals in Toronto

Going on a trip and need a full-service van for your travels? You’ve come to the right place!

Today’s review is all about the best van rentals in Toronto and the services they offer. Each review summarizes the highlights that we’ve gathered for every company to help you make a decision.

The Cost of Van Rentals in Toronto

Van rentals in Toronto can start as low as $90 to $150 per day. This all depends on the passenger capacity of the vehicle and the travel distance from pick-up to destination and back.

Note that some companies are also open to weekly and monthly rentals. The computation is roughly the same, although certain companies may offer discounts depending on the rental agreement.

If you, however, decide to book for one day and wish to extend, the extension fee can start for as low as $75. In some cases, the extension fee can cost as much as a day’s worth of rent.

Finally, take note of the fees that you might have to pay upon return. The company may charge you extra if you return the van excessively dirty or if you didn’t return it with a full gas (computation varies).

The Best Van Rentals in Toronto

The following criteria outline our selection process for this review.

Note that ratings for each metric were based on three different data-collection methods: online surveys of past clients within the last year; first-hand visits and vehicle viewing; and client feedback assessment based on Google Reviews.

Range of vehicle class – Based on various passenger capacities for each vehicle type, mileage limitations, and transmission options (manual and automatic).
Van quality – Based on vehicle condition (all van features must be working, from headlights to locks and must have certain emergency measures installed). Features and inclusions like the infotainment system were also assessed. 
Pick-up and return process – Based on pick-up locations and ease of travel.
Charges and other fees – Based on the average rental rates for each vehicle class plus toll, tax, insurance, and other related fees.
Rental terms and conditions – Based on the scope of the agreement (e.g what you can and can’t do with the rental).

One of the first things we looked into at Maxx Car Rental is their fleet of rental vehicles. They have a respectable collection of various vehicle types that can carry at least 8 up to 12 passengers in one go.

With these capacities in mind, we see them as a solid choice for a mid-size family going on an outing or a small group of friends. The passenger vans are moderately spacious so there’s plenty of space in case someone wants to sneak a snooze in.

As far as features are concerned, the vans are packed with all the common essentials like Apple Play. According to our survey, everything seems well-maintained as they noted signs of cleanliness with also zero damage inside.

The location can be a bit tricky to find, although the pick-up process is pretty convenient. The same goes for online booking as it’s easy to see the vehicle details as well applicable rates from the estimated trouble.

This, however, is where we found a hitch because their pricing and terms can be disappointing at times. The rates, in general, are fairly priced, but they have a tendency to bump up the prices upon return for various issues.

The extra charges are surely disappointing but they do win us over with reliable customer service and a seamless process. If you want something easy and quick to go, you might want to give them a call first.

Pros

  • Easy online booking process
  • Seamless pick-up and return process
  • Up to 12-passenger capacity
  • Well-maintained vehicles

Cons

  • Tendency to charge extra for various services and points

Although the company doesn’t specialize specifically in van rentals, City Car & Truck Rental won our favor with a lot of things. They have an efficient check-in system, top-quality options, and solid insurance assistance.

Let’s start off with the van options first, which are actually a bit underwhelming since the choices aren’t exactly huge. Despite this, they have minivans that can carry 7 to 12 passengers – already a decent capacity for most clients.

We were also glad to find that their pricing system is transparent and the majority of the customers we talked to say that they charge fairly. However, we still found instances wherein rental extensions cost more than expected – although this isn’t a common problem.

On the bright side, the vans are almost brand new, incredibly clean, and have all features needed for light entertainment. So we understand how they can be strict when it comes to inspections upon return of the vehicle.

Another fun thing about them is that they deal with your insurance company directly – no need to go to the trouble yourself. By the way, this is helpful for the rental reimbursement coverage (if your policy covers it).

Clients can meet them at the shop or have the vehicle directly dropped off at their locations. We find that the company is a great choice for those who have recent issues with their own cars and also those who’ll be on a quick vacation.

Pros

  • Up to 12-passenger capacity for van options
  • Meet-up or drop-off of vehicle
  • Well-maintained vans
  • Deals with insurance directly
  • Transparent pricing

Cons

  • Limited van options
  • Rental extension can be costly

Ventures Car and Truck Rentals has a few things that truly set them apart from the competition. One of which is their 24/7 rental service, allowing those in the middle of an emergency to book a vehicle quickly.

The company has been in the industry for 25 years and its services really do reflect this level of convenience. They can drop off the vehicle anywhere you are in the city or allow you to pick it up at any convenient location.

As for van options, they don’t have much as there are only two minivans as of writing. The passenger capacity is fairly limited too as one van can only accommodate 7 passengers while the other can fit up to 8.

Nonetheless, the van’s quality and features won us over since they’re clearly well-maintained and regularly polished. The vans are packed with air-conditioners, an HD audio system, and other safety systems like central locks.

Although there are a few disputes when it comes to rates, they charge within the average so we have no qualms about the matter. Plus, it’s easy to book a ride online and rent a van on a daily, weekly, and even a monthly basis.

When it comes to insurance matters, the company also deals with insurers directly. Rental extensions are hassle-free so you can eliminate the worries for a short while as they handle your insurance coverage,

Pros

  • 24/7 rental services
  • 25 years in business
  • Meet-up or drop-off of vehicle
  • Deals with insurance directly
  • Transparent pricing
  • Great features on vehicles
  • Easily online booking system

Cons

  • Limited van options
  • Limited passenger capacity
  • Minor issues on extra charges

Widely known as a reputable car rental company (with locations all across the world), Enterprise Rent-A-Car offers a wide selection of safe and reliable cars. Whether you’re a traveler or just need a short-term vehicle, they can accommodate your needs.

One good thing about the company comes when you acquire their rental cars regularly. In this case, once you subscribe to Enterprise, you can take advantage of the benefits – be it access to a range of vehicles, insurance, or maintenance – which we think is a plus factor for the clients.

When it comes to their rental vans, we like that they have great-value vans available from car-derived vehicles to large cargo vans. All these are for a negotiable price, depending on whether it is for daily, weekly, or monthly rentals.

As for getting the lowest prices on their services, we learned that they often have promos and deals. These can be applied by paying for a car in advance, acquiring a one-way rental, or being a member of Enterprise Club.

In addition to that, the company’s vehicles get regular maintenance and cleaning. They also offer rental insurance that will cover minor damage to the car, as well as cover the driver and the passengers.

The only unpleasant thing we heard about the company is their occasionally poor customer care service. This is surely disappointing knowing all the great services they offer, but as we’ve checked, they’re working on a lot of improvements at the moment.

Pros

  • Offers rental cars for any budget
  • One-way or long-term rentals
  • Wide selection of vans
  • Fair pricing system
  • Solid booking process

Cons

  • Cars may have high mileage
  • Hidden charges
  • Inconsistency with customer service

There are many reasons we consider Advantage Car & Truck a great choice. First and foremost is their diverse set of car categories that can cater to a wide range of mobility needs.

We were also wowed with the company’s fleet features, which include a large selection of up-to-date vehicles from some of the best car manufacturers in the world. Surely with this, customers can easily be satisfied with their rent-a-car needs.

For their van options, as of writing, the company has a total of four types of vans. Despite having few van choices for the customers, they can always enjoy the rental with the inclusion of friendly rates and discounts.

Another good thing about the company is that they offer vehicle delivery and pick-up services (available by prior appointment at participating locations). With these, they can give their customer a hustle-free experience, which is a plus.

Since customer care service also factors in this industry, they make sure to deliver fast and efficient assistance to their clients. With their staff around, we saw that they always guarantee their consumer the rate and vehicle class they deserve.

Speaking of rates, we found out that the company adjusts its pricing on a minute-by-minute basis due to so many factors as to remain competitive in the marketplace. That is why we recommend you reserve the available one that you want immediately.

Pros

  • Provides vehicle delivery and pick-up services
  • Offers discounts often
  • Competitive rates from time-to-time
  • Great van condition and features

Cons

  • Price changes from time to time
  • Limited van options
