Found 1st Sep 2008
I'm off to Seattle (got cheap flight last week found details here)
Going up to Vancouver. Then want to hire a car to cross the Rockies to Edmonton.

Advice on car hire in Canada - one way hire needed and these can be expensive.

ANy recommendations for accommodation in Vancouver and en-route through the Rockies.

Has anyone ever driven through the Rockies in winter?

ANybody ever used one of these car hire 'Excess' insurance deals?

AAAh so many questions?


I did hire a car last year in Toronto .... Paid approx £130/wk for a fully insured car ... (But forgot to carry my credit card so had to book another one at the airport for £300/wk... doh) So do not forget to carry your credit card which you used to book the car hire on internet ... Go for [url]www.nationalcar.co.uk[/url] or whichever gives you fully insured car hire price .... Not sure about one way car hire prices though ... Sorry did not have answers to your other questions ...

For hotels ... try [url]www.kayak.com[/url] .... or [url]www.all-hotels.com[/url] ... Good Luck ...

for your info in future have found site midashotels that undercuts every car hire deal I have found and uses National cars.

ALso the hotels deals are a few dollars cheaper than other sites.
