Mini-van Long-term Rental Options in Toronto/Mississauga.

Hello,

We are a Canadian family who will be returning to Toronto/Mississauga/Oakville/Hamilton from June 11 - August 3, 2013.

There are six of us(2 adults, 4 small children).

We will need a vehicle the entire time we are in the area.

Does anyone know of anything like Getaround in the GTA?

Any other suggestions for a long-term car rental?

Thanks,

Getaround is a peer-to-peer car sharing network.

Hi Jonathan;

There is a car sharing company in Toronto, but they don't offer mini-vans, mostly "economy" cars.

zipcars.ca

Best Regards

Both Zip and Autoshare are mostly for short-term rentals ( hourly, daily, weekends) ... I "doubt" they'd be much use to you. if you're going to be based in the suburban areas as noted, it's possible you might get a deal on a long term rental from one of the majors - National, Hertz, Avis, etc. - located in those areas (as opposed to an airport location).

Occasionally there have been posts here about a car dealership which also rents vehicles ... for the life of me I cannot remember the name of it though. Someone else may recall it.

I might try an actual Car dealership to see if they could do a "short-term" lease, and if they couldn't, you might at least get some information regarding a rental option from them............Mississauga is full of Car dealerships....they have "Auto Malls" where there are many different dealerships clustered together......

You might want to contact Somerville Leasing- they seem to work with movie production companies a lot, so potentially some short term leasing opportunities.

I thought of Somerville, but I once tried to get a short term lease from them and it was no go on private vehicles.
