We're a family of 3 making our first trip to Canada in November - approx 2 Nov to 13 Nov. We were thinking of flying into Calgary (from LAX), then driving to Vancouver before flying into the US to continue our trip. I've read that picking up a hire car in one province and dropping off in another can be quite expensive - are we better to plan for a round trip to reduce costs? Or is it not much of a difference? The places we were considering visiting were Edmonton, Jasper, Banff, Lake Louise, maybe Whistler and Victoria (as well as Calgary and Vancouver). Any suggestions on itineraries, must-see destinations or general travel tips (especially around the weather at that time of year) would be greatly appreciated. We will be travelling with our 22-month old so hoping to avoid too many long days in the car if we can.
Thanks in advance!
