The spread of the novel coronavirus and ensuing Covid-19 pandemic are going to change how we travel for the foreseeable future. Personal transport has already become the most important means of travel, as people try to minimize the risk of coronavirus transmission from shared spaces. Car rental in Toronto has become centre stage as people look to make the best of both worlds – freedom from expensive car ownership but personal cars when they need them.
Advantage Car Rental is working hard to make sure we keep our customers and staff safe during this time. Find out what you should expect from your car rental desk when you book a rental car in Canada.
