If you don't want to own an RV but enjoy being able to stay where you want and travel when you please with the comforts of home, renting an RV is the way to go.
Motorhomes come in all sizes and are available from a number of RV rental outlets throughout British Columbia. If you are flying in to Vancouver or Calgary you can arrange to be picked up at the airport and transported to the RV depot and then you are off on your vacation.
To rent an RV, a valid driver's license, proof of age and a passport may be required by rental agencies. The vehicles come with automatic transmission, power braking and steering systems. The typical size is 20 - 30 feet (6 m - 9.1 m) in length and they are much easier to drive than you would think!
The cost to rent a motorhome or RV depends on the size of the vehicle, the mileage to be driven and the season. High season is July and August so rates are more. A renter should budget between $100 - $250 per day for rental fees.
Unlike renting a car, unlimited mileage is not offered. The total allowance is usually 200 kilometers per day with an additional charge in the $0.30 to $0.40 cents per kilometre range. A renter should also ask about insurance costs.
Finally, expect to pay a damage/security deposit in the range of $500 - $1,500 for the rental of a motorhome. This is refunded when the RV is returned in good condition.
Plan your trip ahead of time and ask about convenience kits such as linens, sleeping bags, cutlery, all of which can be rented.
Check out the rental listings to find agencies that can accommodate your needs.
