Top tips for hiring a car in British Columbia

  • To hire a car in British Columbia, you must have a driving licence and credit card. It is also advisable to have comprehensive insurance coverage, which offers compensation if the vehicle is damaged or stolen by someone else during your stay. Make sure that the car you are hiring has a policy allowing enough driving range to cover all of your trips, as some contracts only allow the vehicle to travel a certain number of kilometres during the hire period. Do note that during the pickup, payments are made using an active credit or debit card in the hirer’s name. If payment will be done by someone else, all payment requirements must be met.
