Campers / RV
British Columbia is a popular destination for RV (recreational vehicle) trips.
A well-maintained highway network, service stations, and plenty of parks and campgrounds offering RV-specific accommodation make travelling by RV here easy.
Plan a point-to-point trip or drive one of BC’s scenic Driving Routes.
Rental RVs come in all forms: van conversions, truck campers, fifth wheels, travel trailers, folding camping trailers, motorhomes or camper vans. They can be driven or towed, range from basic to deluxe, and can sleep anywhere from 2 to 6 adults.
Some rental companies allow one-way RV rentals (often between Vancouver and Calgary), and can arrange pick-ups or drop-offs to and from area hotels and airports.
RV License and Age Requirements
The majority of RVs do not require a special license to drive or tow. Drivers always need a valid driver’s license from their own country; international licenses are recommended, but not required. Check with rental companies for age requirements. Rental companies will often provide instruction prior to driving.
Driving in Winter
Snow tires are recommended for travel during winter. Some highways in BC require snow tires by law.
Most rental agencies equip RV’s/campers with snow tires and ski racks to accommodate visitors arriving for ski vacations, but be sure to check in advance.
