Updated on May 17, 2010

Car Rental in Vancouver

If you are a visitor to Vancouver one of the major things you are going to need to consider is how you are going to get around the city. The fact is that the public transit system in Vancouver is terrible so you are probably going to want to rent a car. Car rental in Vancouver is for the most part a fairly straight forward process but you are going to want to do some research in order to make sure that you get the best deal possible. There are a number of factors you are going to want to consider in any Vancouver car rental company that will help you to get the right car for your visit.

The first thing that you are going to want to consider is the reputation of the company. You would think that all car rental companies in Vancouver would offer similar levels of service but this isn't true. Fortunately the internet provides plenty of reviews of Vancouver car rental companies and these can be a great resource. This is especially true for international travellers since it is unlikely that you will be familiar with the local companies. The important thing is to make sure that you are working with a reliable and reputable company.

Another factor to consider when renting a car in Vancouver is just what kind of car you are going to rent. There is a huge variety of cars on the market and almost all of them are available to be rented. Whether you are looking for a budget car or a luxury car, a compact or a van you will likely find a car rental company in Vancouver who offers it. This is going to be a personal decision since only you know what kind of car you are going to need.

There can be a pretty large variation in cost when renting a car in Vancouver and this is obviously going to need to be a consideration. There are also different ways in which rental fees are charged which will affect the cost depending on how you plan to use the car. Things like a fixed daily rate for unlimited kilometres can make a huge difference in the cost. You are going to need to decide just how you plan to use the car to make sure that you are getting the best deal.

Car rental in Vancouver can be fairly expensive so it pays to do your research in order to make sure that you get the best price for your situation. You can use the internet to research Vancouver car rental companies and use that information to make an informed decision.
