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.

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.
