While most attractions in Vancouver can be explored on foot or with the city's excellent transit system, a car rental is the most convenient way to get the best out of your Canadian holiday as it opens up the breathtaking natural landscape beyond the city limits.
Drive your rental car out of Vancouver and visit Victoria, the capital of British Columbia and the ideal setting for a range of outdoor activities, from hiking through the redwood forests to salmon fishing in Campbell River. You can also find a range of sports and outdoor pursuits at Squamish, the self-styled Outdoor Recreation Capital of Canada, which the whole family can visit on a car rental day trip from Vancouver to enjoy climbing, fishing, hiking, horse riding, scuba diving or white water rafting in picturesque surroundings.
Vancouver is also a popular destination for ski holidays in the winter, with high quality resorts at nearby Whistler that offer some of the best snow in Canada and can be easily reached with a car rental. There are more skiing opportunities further afield that are easily reached with a car rental, amidst stunning mountain scenery in the Canadian Rockies at Banff National Park.
Your car rental holiday in Vancouver isn't restricted to Canada, with the city of Seattle being easily reachable across the United States border. Your car rental grants access to the entire length of California, meaning you can easily take in San Francisco and Los Angeles on your holiday in Vancouver.
