    Car Rental Oshawa, Ontario

    Reserve a rental car in Oshawa

    Oshawa is a city in Ontario, Canada, on the shore of Lake Ontario. It is located in southern Ontario, approximately 60 km (37 miles) east of downtown Toronto. It is commonly considered the eastern anchor of the Greater Toronto Area and the Golden Horseshoe. It is the largest township in the Durham Regional Township. Oshawa originates from the Ojibwa term aaz haway, which means "the place of crossing" or simply "across."

    Oshawa's roots are tied to the automotive industry, specifically the Canadian division of General Motors, known as General Motors Canada. Founded in 1876 as McLaughlin Carriage Company by Robert McLaughlin, and later McLaughlin Motors Ltd by his son, Sam, General Motors of Canada's headquarters are located in the city. The auto industry was the inspiration for Oshawa's earlier slogans: "The city that leads to Canada" and "The city on the move." The lavish home of the auto company's founder, Parkwood Estate, is a Canadian National Historic Site and a favored backdrop for numerous film crews, appearing in many films, including It, Billy Madison, Chicago, and the X-Men. Wherever you may be in Oshawa, we have a convenient location for your car rental.
