Book a cheap car rental in Vancouver Canada

Rent a car in Vancouver – a city located on the mainland of British Columbia – and make a beeline for a great traveling experience in Canada. It is the eighth largest Canadian municipality. Vancouver is a “Pacific Pearl” because it is situated between the Pacific Ocean and the Coast Mountain range.

Vancouver is beautiful, a mix of urban and rural elements scattered all around the city. For example, close to downtown is the well-known Stanley Park, which is about 400 hectares big. The park has paved paths for cyclists, a track field, children’s Farmyard, a water park, a miniature railroad track, and also has the largest aquarium in all of Canada. There are also beaches close by. And for those who love to shop, there is Canada’s equivalent of Rodeo Drive, Robson Street. People can also hit Denman Street, full of the city’s best food. So, if you want to visit all the attractions in Vancouver with ease, a hire car from VIP Cars is certainly the best option. We provide last minute rental vehicle deals, as well as weekly and monthly deals for Vancouver. Make sure that you have a valid driver's license and other documents listed on the rental voucher for successful pickup.

Best type of car to rent in Vancouver

Choose the car category depending on the type of trip you are planning. While an economy car is great for budget travelers, it is suited only for city travel, not road trips – for them either an SUV or a full size vehicle is a better option. Moreover if you are planning to camp with family and friend while visiting one of the many national parks in Vancouver, rent either an SUV (if you have equipment) or a van/minivan.

For city travel a mini car is also a great choice especially for people who are travelling alone. Luxury and premium vehicles are popular with business travelers. The following are the popular car categories our supplier offer in Vancouver:

  • Economy

    These fuel-efficient rentals are best for city trips. Chevrolet Spark and Kia Rio are some of the economy rentals you can book through us

  • Luxury car rentals

    Luxury and premium cars are quite popular with business travelers. Nissan Maxima, BMW 3 Series & Chrysler 300C are the luxury cars we provide in Vancouver

  • SUV car rentals

    It is the best bet for people traveling with equipment for activities. Toyota RAV4, Chevrolet Tahoe & Jeep Wrangler are the SUVs our suppliers provide in Vancouver

  • Van rentals

    Best for families and friends traveling with bigger groups. We provide ample choice but the most popular van rental is certainly Dodge Grand Caravan
