Before You Go
Before you depart for your vacation, you’ll want to make sure you have everything you need in order to have a successful and enjoyable trip. Although it’s always fun to explore and not adhere to a schedule, you may want to plan a few destinations and activities prior to leaving for your holiday. There is also lot of information available about accommodations, events, weather, and we are glad to provide you with tips and destination information to inspire you.
First a few tips on:
Getting around by car and driving long distances is the way of life in Canada. If you plan to explore and do a lot of travelling within BC, renting a car is recommended. Though there are public transportation systems, they are not nearly as expansive as what you might find in many other countries, and the challenges in BC are marked by the mountainous topography and expansive waterways. In addition, BC is a vast province—much of which is wilderness—and travelling to different regions can take many hours or even days. Renting a car allows you to make your own schedule and is often less expensive than other modes of transportation. If you’re not planning on renting a car, however, there are other options for getting around, such as by bus and airplane.
