Vancouver to Banff

Travelling to Vancouver in June. Had thought Van to Banff then Jadper and return to Vancouver. Does it make more sense to go home from Calgary rather than return to Vancouver?

Very much closer. But beware of rental car drop off fees which can be expensive. I maybe mistaken but I think Hertz doesn't charge for a drop between Vancouver and Calgary but call or email to make sure.

Canadian Affair is a company that many Brits and Aussies use to rent cars in Canada, apparently they don't charge the one way drop off. By arriving in Vancouver and leaving from Calgary, you gain a couple of days to spend in the mountains.

Probably, depending on how much time you have. If you have 5 - 9 days, then yes. If you have 10+ days, then you have enough time for the loop.

thanks to all so far. We do have at least 10 days so maybe we'll do the loop.
