Vancouver International Airport is a large airport in Canada, serving the city of Vancouver and its metropolitan areas. It handles over seventeen million passengers per annum, and is regarded as the second busiest airport in the country. It is also one of the largest on the west coast of Northern America. The airport has the official code of YVR, and it is located just 12km from Downtown Vancouver, on Sea Island in Richmond. There are bus and train services at the airport, but passengers can also rent a car, from one of the car hire companies available, such as Avis Vancouver Airport. Avis is a good choice for all types of rentals, and provide vehicles from rental locations around the world.
Avis, at this rental location, is open from 05:00am to 02:00am, and are therefore available for passengers on all arrival flights of the airport. The car rental counters are within easy walking distance of the arrival points, and the cars of Avis are parked just outside of the terminals. Vancouver Airport is a busy location, and cars are recommended to be booked in advance. An earlier reservation often ensures lower rental rates as well, and brings peace of mind in knowing your ideal car is ready and waiting for your arrival. Car rental can be arranged online, as nowadays most people consider internet reservations to be the most convenient. There are number of websites which support Avis car rental reservations. The majority of the Vancouver Airport car hire companies, including Avis, also allow customers to return their vehicles out-of-office hours. The completed contract and the vehicle keys can be placed in the key drop box. Always ensure that you have removed all personal belongings from the vehicle before leaving it at the airport.
Frequent renters and occasional renters can become Avis Preferred members at no extra charge. This service is ideal for persons who are fond of Avis, and for anyone who quite regularly requires a rented car. Many of the Avis rental locations offer their Preferred members pre-prepared paperwork, priority Avis Preferred counters and will have the customers’ vehicles parked in the most convenient locations. Certain locations even offer their Avis Preferred members a dedicated area in the car park where they can leave the keys in the vehicle so that there is no need to stop at the rental counters. Anyone with a valid drivers license and major credit card who is 23 years of age or older can become an Avis Preferred member. Applications are available online.
Passengers arriving at Vancouver Airport will need to be at least 21 years of age or older to rent a car from Avis, and will need to have one of the following major credit cards: Avis Charge Card, American Express, AT&T Capital, Diner’s Club, Diner’s Club Int’l, Discover, GE Capital, JCB, Mastercard, Peterson, Howell and Heather (PHH), Sears or Visa. Debit cards cannot be used to pay for the rental when the vehicle is collected, but may be used for payments that are due at the end of the rental period. Although the minimum age is 21, drivers younger than the age of 25 are liable for higher rental fees, and may not be permitted to hire vehicles such as luxury models, mini-vans, 12-passenger vans, specialty cars and SUVs.
Vehicle insurance may not automatically be included in your rental quote from Avis, and it is wise to find out from Avis which insurances are required. Passengers may also hire additional items of equipment, for example, child seats and satellite navigation systems, and the costs of these items are not included. Avis hand controls for disabled drivers can be requested from the car rental location of Vancouver Airport. Hand control equipment is used on certain types of automatic vehicles, and operates the accelerator and brake pedals of the vehicle.

The Vancouver Airport car rental companies do not always have these items available, therefore an advanced reservation is advantageous.

An Avis one way hire allows the customer to return their hire car to a different location. There could be additional charges for the service, but the costs involved will mainly depend on the return location chosen and the length of the rental.
