best way to get from Victoria Airport to Canada Place Pier.

I am flying into Victoria airport. Didn't know there was one closer to the pier where we are going on a cruise. Coming July 10 and the cruise leaves July 12. I also have to return to airport on July 20. We planned an extra day to go see the Gardens. But now I don't know the best way to travel.

The correct website link is in Post #5 above. See the tab under Car & RV hire.

But as noted, you may find Americans are not eligible for this service.

Look in the red navigation bar at the top for the title phpr gave you.

I think you will have to phone them though. There is a toll free number at the very bottom of their page. You will see "CA" which, in this case means Canada, not California. It might work when phoning from the US. There is also an email address you could use.

We(Europe) can book through Canadianaffair. I looked through their terms and conditions and could'nt find anything about excluding any countries or nationalities.

Wallie, it was on another thread a few weeks ago when an American poster came on to say CA would not rent to them from the Stares. The OP needs to check that out "in person" as that was then and this is now. I hope the OP will advise us the answer.

I don't know if renting a car just to get over to Vancouver is an affordable alternative. It will depend on how many people there are. It will cost $50 to take a car on the ferry in addition to the $15 per person.

The airport is in Richmond, 15 km's from downtown, where as the Pacific Coach Lines (http://www.pacificcoach.com/) bus terminal is 2 km's away from the cruise terminal and is right downtown. If you want an even cheaper alternative, the transit system in both cities is easy to use. Harder with a lot of luggage though.

Are you flying directly to Victoria from Nevada or are you stopping somewhere like Vancouver or Seattle? If so, maybe cancelling just the last part of the flight to Victoria would work for you.

Just a heads up about not taking a leg of a longer journey. If you don't show up for one leg of your journey, all the remaining legs will be cancelled by the airline. You would then be required to buy new tickets to continue your journey. There's a name for doing this that I don't recall and you can see lots of threads from people asking about doing this on the Air Travel Forum.
