How do you find Avis at YOW Airport?

Rental Car Return Ottawa Airport

Return your YOW car rental at 1003 Airport Parkway, Ottawa. As you approach the airport, stay right, following the signs for Rental Return instead of turning into the first parkade entrance. Continue to follow the Rental Return signs to the left when the road forks. You’ll enter the parkade on the side facing the terminal.

Car Options

Before you rent a car at Ottawa Airport, consider your travel plans to determine what type of vehicle you’ll need.

Families visiting landmarks like Parliament Hill or Rideau Canal will be most comfortable in a van or a roomy SUV.

If your itinerary consists of business meetings and quick trips to the ByWard Market for an on-the-go lunch, you could stick to an economy rental. Aiming to impress a big client or your boss? Opt for a sleek luxury vehicle instead.
