Vancouver Car Rental Mini Guide

It may be cold in winter, but Vancouver is incredibly desirable, both for holidays and permanent residence. It is conveniently located close to some of the best skiing in the world which is hugely popular with our car rental customers. We do advise prebooking your hire car online as this is a popular destination. If you are hitting the slopes you can request for your rental vehicle to be equipped with snow tyres and snow chains on the booking page.

Vancouver has its own international airport located in the south of the city and so there are regular domestic, cross border and international air connections to and from Vancouver. If you do decide to arrive at Abbotsford Airport near Vancouver, while it may be a cheaper option there are no direct transport links from this airport to the city however you can prebook a rental car to collect from either of these airports with Rhino.

If you are hiring a car in Canada for the first time we do recommend reading our Drive Smart Canada guide to ensure you know the rules of the road and can drive safely in and around Vancouver.
