Important information about Vancouver car hire

Can I drive into the US with a rental car from Vancouver?

Applicable providers will commonly not have any restrictions for someone to cross the border with their Vancouver car hire. However, there might be limitations, depending on which provider that you choose to book your hire car with. As long as a driver informs the provider they intend to book the car hire with about their intentions of crossing the border, there usually isn’t a problem with taking your hire vehicle into a neighbouring country. All drivers should expect to pay a cross-border fee at the time of their booking. If you plan on travelling into the United States, always make sure that you carry your passport, driving licence and a visa (if applicable.) Some states require the use of an international driver's permit (IDP). Cities like Seattle that sit close to the border will require this permit on arrival.

Can you hire a car in Vancouver without a credit card?

No matter if you are looking for cheap car rentals in Vancouver or just standard options, they commonly go by the same rules in terms of needing a suitable card for your booking. Whilst it is commonly required that you have to bring a credit card, it is not always essential. You should contact your provider before your booking to make sure that there are other suitable options of choice. Usually, a driver can show either a Visa or Mastercard. Either of these cards will need to have enough funds to pay for a deposit for the car hire in Vancouver, in the circumstances that you might face accidental damage whilst it is in your possession.

What driving laws should I keep an eye out for in Vancouver?

Drivers who are undertaking car hire in Vancouver will commonly find that the general driving laws are in accordance with those in the rest of Canada. All drivers must drive on the right-hand side of the road, meaning that all hire vehicles are equipped with a wheel on the left-hand side. When you are driving with the intention of passing someone, always make sure that you pass on the left-hand side of the road. A driver must also always give way to pedestrians at a crossing and ensure that all occupants that are in the car wear a seat belt. Although driving in Vancouver is pretty simple, it doesn’t hurt for a driver to familiarise themselves with the Canadian Highway Safety Code. Speed limits can change depending on which roads that you are driving on. Unlike other locations, those driving in Vancouver or in any part of Canada will find both a minimum and a maximum speed limit. When you are driving on the highway, never exceed the maximum speed limit of 100 km/h (62 mph) and never drive less than the minimum of 60 km/h (37 mph). The standard limit on most regular roads in Vancouver is 50 km/h (31 mph).

What documents does an international traveller need to hire a car in Vancouver?

Depending on the provider that you choose to obtain your Vancouver car hire through, you will find that requirements of documentation tend to change. However, there are a select few documents that all passengers should bring; otherwise, they might be refused car hire in Vancouver. All drivers must make sure that they have a full and valid driving licence. This licence must be valid at the initial pick up of your vehicle as well as throughout the entirety of the reservation period. You must also show your passport; your passport must be in date and valid throughout the duration of your stay in Vancouver. A driver must make sure that they also meet the minimum age requirement to drive in Vancouver. When driving, you also need to carry the insurance documents of your hire vehicle.
