Alamo Richmond Vancouver International Airport
Vancouver Airport (YVR) is an international airport in Canada, and is located just a few kilometres from the city centre of Vancouver, a popular destination for tourists, and one of the most popular cities in which to live in North America. The airport has also won numerous awards for its service, and it handles approximately 17 million passengers per annum. It is the second largest airport in Canada. Facilities available for arriving passengers include Vancouver Airport car hire companies, for example, Alamo, National, Hertz, Avis, Europcar and Budget. Alamo is a very popular choice for leisure car rentals, and offers passengers of Vancouver Airport competitive car rental rates.
Vancouver Airport has a few terminal buildings at which passengers could arrive. The arrival terminal will mostly depend on the type of flight which they are on, for example, international flights arrive at the International Terminal and domestic flights arrive at the Domestic Terminal. These buildings could be considered as one, with two different sections. The South Terminal of the airport is more remote, and is the base for a few regional airline companies. The car rental companies are conveniently situated on the lower level of the parking garage for the main terminal buildings, and can be reached on foot. The rented cars of the various companies, including Alamo, can be found nearby as well. Alamo Vancouver Airport is open from 05:30 to 23:59, seven days a week, and could also be available for longer hours as well. Alamo can provide details for out-of-office hour returns as well.
Upon your arrival at Vancouver Airport make your way to the rental counters of Alamo, with your valid drivers license and payment card. The credit cards accepted by the car hire companies include Mastercard, Visa, American Express, Diner’s Club, Diner’s Club Int’l, Discover and others, and are used for payments at the beginning of the rental period. A debit card may be used at the end of the rental period. Drivers licenses issued in Canada or America are generally accepted, however, it is always recommended to find out from Alamo if an International Driving Permit is required, as this document can only be arranged in your country of residence. This is especially the case if your local license is printed in a non-Roman alphabet. The drivers of the vehicle should all be present for collection, and should be at least 21 years of age. However, persons under the age of 25 are considered as young renters, and may be liable for higher rental costs. Younger drivers may also not hire from certain vehicle categories.
The Vancouver Airport car rental companies offer a wide range of vehicles. The cars hired are considered to be in good condition and of late models only, and are available with unlimited mileage. Many have nice features, such as air conditioning, power steering, power mirrors, cruise control and power locks and windows. The majority of vehicles hired from this rental location have automatic transmissions, but it may be possible to arrange a car with a manual transmission as well. Certain kinds of automatic vehicles are used if Alamo hand controls for disabled drivers are requested. This device operates the brake and accelerator pedals of the vehicle, but not any other functions. It may also include a steering wheel knob. From Vancouver Airport, hand controls are available free of charge.
The largest vehicle from Alamo may be similar to the Chevrolet Express for up to fifteen passengers, and the smaller cars are similar to the Suzuki Swift, ideal for four or five passengers, provided not too many luggage pieces need to be loaded. The Suzuki Swift is found in the Economy category, and this type of vehicle is usually offered with the lowest car rental rates. Other smaller vehicles include the Nissan Versa and Dodge Caliber, while examples of larger SUVs are the Ford Escape, Ford Explorer, Ford Edge, Chevrolet Tahoe and Chevrolet Suburban. The last two mentioned can seat seven passengers. For seven, the Dodge Grand Caravan in the Minivan category is also ideal. Additional cars from Alamo are similar to the Ford Fusion, Toyota Prius, Chevrolet Impala, Buick Allure and the Chrysler 300C.
Vehicles hired from Vancouver Airport can be arranged as an ordinary rental, and be returned to the airport grounds, or as an Alamo one way hire, and be returned to a different car rental location. Sometimes, passengers will be departing from another airport, in which case one way hire services are more convenient. From Vancouver Airport, one way hires may be driven to all parts of Canada, may require an advanced reservation and may be more expensive than an ordinary rental. Cross-border rentals to other countries may also be permitted.
Driving in Canada is done on the right-hand side of the road, and the cities, even the larger ones such as Vancouver, are quite easy to navigate, as their roads are often in a grid-pattern. The speed limits should be noted at all times, but in general, they are no more than 50kph in urban areas, 100kph on open roads and 130kph on highways. Strict rules surround drunken driving as well, and drivers should not operate a vehicle whilst talking on a cellular phone. There are many lovely areas nearby Vancouver to explore, such as Whistler, and motorists should have little trouble navigating the roads. Keep in mind that Alamo also hires equipment such as satellite navigation systems and child seats for babies, toddlers and young children.
