Top tips for renting a car in Victoria

  • Renting a car in Victoria lets you explore the city and its surroundings on your own schedule without having to pay for cabs or face the crowds in public transports. Perched on the edge of Vancouver Island, the city has lots of places you can drive to such as Beacon Hill Park. A hire car is also perfect for discovering other destinations outside Victoria, including the scenic route to nearby Saanich Peninsula, which is only 45 minutes away.
  • All the big car hire agencies can be found at Victoria International Airport (YYJ), which is located approximately 25 km (15.5 miles) north of Victoria. Car hire services are situated in the arrivals hall of the airport's passenger terminal, straight across from the Information Desk. Handicap hand controls are available with some companies when requested in advance.
  • Victoria itself is a fairly easy city to navigate, but remember that traffic signs will be expressed in kilometers rather than miles. If you're heading to other destinations outside the city, beware that some back roads may be trickier, especially in the winter months. Vancouver Island is also popular among cyclists, so be extra careful when driving through the area.
  • Traffic around Victoria usually flows nicely throughout the whole day, especially when compared to other big cities in Canada and the U.S., but driving into or out of the city during morning or evening rush hour can be a bit chaotic. Avoid driving into the city between 7 a.m. and 9 a.m. and out of the city between 4 p.m. and 6:30 p.m.
  • Book your rental car in Victoria at least 1 week before your trip in order to get a below-average price
