Enterprise Richmond Vancouver International Airport
Vancouver Airport is the second busiest airport in Canada for commercial passenger traffic, and in 2011, handled just over seventeen million passengers. The airport is a hub for a number of airline companies, such as Air Canada and Transat, and is an important gateway for the city of Vancouver, in Western Canada. It is located on Sea Island, in Richmond, and the airport and the city of Vancouver is found in the British Columbia region of the country. Passengers can rent a car from one of the Vancouver Airport car hire companies, such as Enterprise. There are a number of Enterprise rental locations throughout Canada, Germany, Ireland and the United Kingdom, and they are a company well known for their excellent services.
Enterprise is one of the off-site car rental companies of the airport, and has shuttle services running between their offices and the Vancouver Airport terminal buildings. Every seven to ten minutes the Enterprise car rental shuttle is available for passengers for transport to the car rental offices. Passengers should exit the Domestic or International Terminals, and enter Level P1 in the three level parking lot located across the street. There are car rental shuttle signs to the far side where the shuttles for Enterprise collect passengers. There is a glass enclosure, labelled as ‘Enterprise’ and ‘Car Rental Shuttles’. Although Enterprise is not found on the airport grounds, they are convenient for car hire, as their shuttles are frequently available and accessible to disabled persons.
The other Vancouver Airport car hire companies are found in the same parking garage, and their vehicles are parked on the airport grounds. They include Hertz, Avis, National, Alamo, Budget, Auto Europa, Thrifty and Dollar. Regardless of the car rental company you choose, make an advanced reservation to ensure that the car you require is available. Earlier reservations are most conveniently made online, and are usually cheaper than direct rentals. Advanced reservations are also recommended when additional items of equipment are required, for example, satellite navigation systems and child seats. From Enterprise, child seats are available in various sizes, and are suitable for infants, toddlers and older children. A GPS unit is extremely helpful to anyone who is unfamiliar with the streets in and outside of Vancouver.
