You won't need a car for vancouver..for Van. Island really depends on where you are going.. if you are going to any part except Victoria probably need a car unless you plan to fly in and out.

For the Rockies are you doing train? Moosebus? otherwise you will need a car.also are you doing a circle tour? or do you want to hire in BC and drop in Alberta ie.fly from Calgary or Edmonton back to UK?

Hi, We've booked Youth Hostals at Jericho Beach and Tofino as we thought this would suit the 4 teenagers in our group. We thought about hiring a Minibus for our party of 8,flying into Vancouver and out of Calgary 3wks later, but have not had any success finding a suitable vehicle. It may be cheaper to hire 2 cars for 3 weeks? Thanks for reply

In VAncouver last spring, our family of 5 ran into an unexpected problem -- most taxis were licensed for only 4 passengers. WE ended up using the city buses most of the time. We went to Victoria, Vancouver and Tofino and only rented a car for the time we were in Tofino.
