Hertz in Quebec

Hertz car rental in Quebec is fast and easy, and with Quebec home to such a great range of attractions this is the best mode of transport. You’ll find Hertz rental branches throughout the city, making it easy to rent a car in Quebec whenever you like.

Although Quebec is over four centuries old, this is a modern city with excellent roads. It’s easy to get around by car here, both in the city itself and in the surrounding countryside.Favourite attractions such as Montmorency Falls, ChateauFrontenac and the Quebec Citadel are all within easy reach. The most European city in North America brims with attractions and activities, and there’s never a dull moment.

Driving and Parking in Quebec

You will need a full driving licence and must be over 21 to rent a car in Quebec. You will also need an International Driving Permit (IDP). For more information about driving regulations in Quebec, take a look at our page about renting a car in Canada.

When you rent a car in Quebec, you’ll find that there are plenty of parking bays in the central area and surrounding streets, with meters. You can park here for a limited period, and there’s a mobile app freely available to help visitors find parking slots in real time and make payments.

Parking meters operate from Monday to Saturday, 9.00am to 9.00pm, and on Sundays 10.00am to 9.00pm. Some of the meters take credit cards, but not all of them. Things are a bit different in winter. Between 1st November and 15th April, you’re not allowed to park after a heavy snowfall when the streets are being cleared. Before snow removal starts, there’ll be flashing orange warning indicators in the streets just before operations begin.

Driving in and around Quebec

Key routes

Quebec City is divided up into a number of districts, each with its own unique atmosphere, and several major routes cut through these. Many visitors are interested in shopping for fashion items and souvenirs, and for them the Rue Saint-Jean will take them straight to the Cote de Baude and Cote de Fabrique.

The Rue Saint-Paul takes you straight in to the antiques quarter of Quebec.

The Rue du Tresor is lined by numerous arts and crafts shops, and the whole street is a virtual open-air gallery.

The Rue Saint-Louis has the most Europeanambience, reminiscent of Paris orthe more exclusive parts of Marseilles.

The Autoroute system

The Autoroute system of motorways makes getting from Quebec to the surrounding countryside quick and easy. It’s similar to the US Interstate Highway System, and is the backbone of the local transport system here. Bear a few points in mind while driving in Quebec and you should have a trouble-free experience:

• The road signs are predominantly in French, but use pictograms which are internationally recognised. The motorways or autoroutes all begin with ‘A’, as in France.
• There are no speed camera warning signs, so watch your speed at all times.
• You are not allowed to use a mobile phone in the car, even if the vehicle is stopped at traffic lights.
• There are for the most part no highway tolls in Quebec. The only exception to this is the A-30 expressway just south of Montreal, which carries a small fixed toll.
• When a school bus is stopped and its red lights are flashing, traffic in both directions has to stop.
• You are allowed, as in the US, to turn right on a red light in Quebec and most other places. The only city in Canada where this is not allowed is in Montreal.
