Vancouver Airport Car Rental

Airport Car Rental

Get your rental car at Vancouver Airport! Then drive to Stanley Park, one of the city’s most famous spots and home to the Vancouver Aquarium. The Coal Harbour walkway is right next to it too. Drive a little farther and you’ll reach the ocean at Kitsilano Beach or West Point Grey Beach. Up for an adventure? Visit Lynn Canyon or take a thrilling walk over the Capilano Suspension Bridge.

Visit one of the city’s top-notch museums—the Museum of Anthropology, the Vancouver Art Gallery, and the TELUS World of Science are just a few. Vancouver’s restaurant scene is vibrant. Local dining is generally relaxed with a focus on fresh seafood, healthy ingredients, and multicultural influences. And make sure you head to East Van for some Chinese, Japanese, and Punjabi cuisine, too!

Vancouver’s a great destination, but the surrounding region has even more to offer, so why not get a longer-term car rental? You can drive to nearby Seattle, Alberta, or even explore the north of British Columbia. Picking up your rental car at Vancouver Airport and dropping it off at a different location is easy. Start planning your adventure today!

Vancouver Airport is also known as Aéroport international de Vancouver.

We did not drive into Vancouver but went directly to Seattle. The drive to and from the Routes location was simple and uncomplicated. Seattle was a great location to visit with many things to do and see. Visited the Flight Museum and Pikes Market .... wonderful.
