So what exactly is textbookrental.ca?
textbookrental.ca is the all-new way to end those textbook-buying blues! Buying textbooks for Canadian universities can be a harrowing experience, especially for your wallet. And as students, we know your wallet can only take so much harrowing! One semester of textbooks can cost you around $800! That's around $6,400 for the typical 4 year program before you see even a glint of the headlights of that bright green Honda Civic your friend promised to sell you. Not to mention the hassle and the long lines at the campus bookstore.

Renting from textbookrental.ca solves all these problems, and more. It's SO easy - go to textbookrental.ca, select your books, and watch your savings grow! Save up to 75% on every textbook you'll ever buy. That translates into thousands of dollars! When you're done the semester, mail it back to us with a free UPS mailing label and forget about it. Huge savings and super-speedy shipping; it's no wonder students from campuses across the country choose textbookrental.ca!

How much can textbookrental.ca save me?
Renters can save up to 75% on each book rented. That translates into hundreds of dollars of savings on the average 5-course semester. If each course requires an average of $150 worth of books, that's $750 per semester! textbookrental.ca could shave over $450 off that bill, not to mention the ease of purchasing all your textbooks online, all on one site, and having them shipped, for one low price!

How does it work?
Search textbookrental.ca for the books you need. Add them to your cart, hit Checkout, and save! Your textbooks should arrive within 3-5 business days. Keep them in good condition, don't write in them (maybe use post-it notes!), and at the end of the semester just put it in the Canada Post Return envelope provided, and you're done! Repeat the process every semester, and your savings could translate into $3,000 back in your pocket over a 4 year program! That's almost a free semester's tuition!

Where will my order ship from?
Our books ship from multiple warehouses and occasionally via one of our network affiliates. We do not know where your order will ship from, nor can we request that they leave from a specific location.

I ordered the wrong textbook! What do I do?
Don't worry about it! With textbookrental.ca's 15 day Satisfaction Guarantee, there is no risk! No matter what the reason, and so long as the textbook is in the same condition in which it was shipped, textbookrental.ca will accept your incorrect/damaged/unnecessary textbook back at no extra charge! But, please remember that you have to notify us within the 15 day period that you intended returning the textbook.

How do I pay?
VISA and Master Card are accepted. You can also use Paypal. Sorry, no personal cheques or money orders.

Will I be charged any sales tax?

What shipping methods are offered?
Depending on your location you can choose different shipping speeds at reasonable rates. Shipping times do not include Processing Times.
