Dollar Richmond Vancouver International Airport
Vancouver International Airport is found in Richmond on Sea Island, approximately 12km, or 7.5 miles south of Downtown Vancouver, and has the IATA code of YVR. The airport is the second largest in Canada (after Toronto Pearson Airport), and handles around seventeen million passengers per annum. It is also considered as one of the best and most efficient airports in North America. Facilities for arriving passengers include car rental companies, such as Dollar Vancouver Airport. Dollar has many car rental locations around the world, and is popular choice for all types of journeys.
Vancouver is a large city well known for its many attractions, and its airport is a popular arrival point for a large number of tourists every year. There are also a significant number of business travellers who make use of the airport. However, no matter the reason for arriving at Vancouver Airport, most passengers require some sort of transport for getting around the city. Buses and taxis serve the airport, but many passenger prefer to travel more privately, and hire a car from one of the Vancouver Airport car rental companies. Dollar is present, as well as Hertz, Avis, Budget, National, Alamo, Auto Europa and Thrifty. These car hire companies have their rental counters in a convenient location nearby the main terminal building, on the lower levels of the parking garage. This area is within walking distance of the arrival areas, and no further form of transport at the airport will therefore be required. The airport’s facilities are well signposted as well.
Passengers who wish to explore more of Canada, and not just Vancouver, are welcome to drive their rented car to further locations. Most cars hired can be driven to all parts of Canada, and even to cities in the United States (a cross-border rental). To the east and northeast of Vancouver are the areas of Hope, Kelowna and Kamloops, while to the south, in North America, are the cities of Bellingham, Everett, Seattle and Tacoma. Dollar one way hires can be arranged if the traveller would prefer to return his/her rented car to a different rental location, should he/she not be returning to Vancouver Airport. One way hires may incur additional costs, but could be far more convenient.
At Vancouver Airport, Dollar is open twenty-four hours a day on Mondays, Wednesdays, Saturdays and Sundays, and from 06:00 to midnight on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Although vehicles can be hired directly over the rental counters, an advanced online car rental reservation is recommended for this location. Dollar will then have the car you need ready and waiting for your arrival at the airport, and is able to reserve any optional items of equipment you require, for example, child seats and satellite navigation systems. A GPS is virtually essential for anyone who has not driven in Vancouver before, even though the streets are quite easy to navigate, and child safety seats are required by law for babies and small children. Dollar will reserve the correct size of seat if you provide them with the age and/or weight of your child.
Vancouver Airport’s terminal buildings are completely accessible to passengers with reduced mobility challenges, including persons in wheelchairs, as there are adequate toilet facilities, elevators and pavement ramps. Wheelchairs may also be borrowed from the information offices. The Vancouver Airport car hire companies have services for disabled drivers, including hand control equipment. Dollar hand controls operate the accelerator and brake pedals of certain kinds of automatic vehicles, and may include a steering wheel knob. From the rental location of Vancouver Airport, hand controls are free of charge, but will require an advanced reservation. A disabled person unable to drive due to disability may still be the primary renter of a vehicle from Dollar, provided that they are accompanied by someone who can show a valid drivers license. This additional driver is free of charge as well.
A large range of vehicles are available from Dollar, Vancouver Airport, and they can be selected from a number of car categories. As a general guideline, the smaller makes of cars are cheaper to hire, and larger vehicles are more expensive. Large cars from Dollar can be Minivans such as the Dodge Grand Caravan or SUVs, for example, the Toyota Rav 4 and Jeep Grand Cherokee. The Dodge Durango is a Fullsize SUV that may seat up to seven passengers, and the Jeep Commander is a Premium SUV, for seven as well. Small cars from Dollar are similar to the Toyota Yaris, Toyota Matrix and Toyota Corolla. They seat between four and five passengers, and offer space for a couple of luggage items. Business travellers in need of a more elegant vehicle can choose the Premium or Luxury car category, which may have cars that are similar to the Chrysler 300 and Chrysler 300 Touring.

VIP counter service is available for Dollar Express members as well, and free rental days can be acquired with Dollar’s Renter Rewards Program.
