For the time I was in Vancouver (half the trip), I used car2go, which totalled $693.64 ($283.16 for first 3 days, $296.90 for next 3 days (went over by 21 minutes by mistake which added to cost), and $113.58 for one more day.)
I then got Pacific Car Rental for a total of $970.18 plus $94.03 for third-party accidental (rental started on same day that car2go ended and ended one day after the end of the trip so I could use the key drop at night. Overall, definitely not the most economical rental situation, but it worked.
Thanks for the update. Because you're young, your options are very limited as many car rental companies will not rent to you. Did you keep the car for whole days while in Vancouver vs reserve/return, reserve/return, reserve/return etc?hmnd01 wrote: ↑Jan 31st, 2019 6:54 pmAs for Evo, @gr8dlr, I have signed up for it because I found a promo code that covers the signup-fee, but it ends up being more expensive per-day than car2go and the 200km total trip limit (regardless of how many days you go) is beat by car2go's daily 200km limit. If you go with a 3 day package, car2go also ends up being cheaper per day. I think Evo has car2go beat in terms of customer support though, I've called them a few times and I was able to completely understand them every time. car2go's support appears to be based in Quebec with primarily French speakers whose English is often completely unintelligible.
For some people your rental sounds like a lot and it is but you didn't have to pay for gas or parking as it's included in your rate which is a plus vs regular car rental.
Car2go and Evo is the way to go for occasional use in the city, it's more expensive if you intend to keep the car for the day.
Failure is always an option...just not the preferred one!
