National Richmond Vancouver International Airport
Vancouver International Airport is located approximately 12km, or 7.5 miles south of Downtown Vancouver, and along the western coastline of Canada. It is found on Sea Island, in Richmond, and the city of Vancouver is part of the British Columbia region of the country. The airport serves as a major gateway between Canada and Asia, as well as between Canada and North America, and is the second busiest airport in the country, falling behind Toronto Pearson Airport. Vancouver Airport is recognised by its IATA code of YVR. The airport has extensive facilities, including car rental companies such as National Vancouver Airport. National is well known for their business car hire services, and is a favourite choice at many airports around the world.
National has over fifty years of experience in the car hire industry, and have mainly focused their attention on the needs of frequent airport business travellers. Some of the company’s achievements include the introduction of the industry’s first comprehensive frequent-renter program, and they also helped to pioneer the corporate account business. National’s frequent-renter program is known as Emerald Club, and its members enjoy many benefits each time they rent a car from a National rental location. They have counter bypass options, may receive convenient e-receipts and enjoy the services of Car Choice, which enables a vehicle to be chosen quickly, without the need to complete any lengthy paperwork. National has a wide range of vehicles for their customers, and cars which are ideal for all types of driving.
The Vancouver Airport car hire companies are found nearby the airport terminals, on the ground floor of the parking lot, and are open at most hours during the day and evening. They are also available seven days a week, and on public holidays as well. National’s hours of operation are from 05:30 to 23:59, and this location may also be available from midnight to 01:30. Sometimes additional charges are applicable for later collections and returns, but most of the companies allow out-of-office hour returns, as they are equipped with a key box. Your vehicle from National will begin the rental period with a full tank of fuel, and should be returned in the same way if fuel was not purchased at the time of collection. Longer rentals usually require the customer to buy fuel, in which case the vehicle can be returned as empty as possible, as no refunds are given for unused fuel. Always find out if your vehicle requires diesel or petrol, and ensure that you are comfortable with the workings of the vehicle before leaving Vancouver Airport.
National one way hires may also be arranged, and are convenient for persons who would rather not return to Vancouver Airport. One way hire services are often more expensive than an ordinary rental, but they could also be available at no extra charge. A cross-border rental should be arranged if the vehicle will be driven out of the country of Canada, and into the United States. This is usually allowed, and can be required by customers who plan to travel more extensively.
For car rental from Vancouver Airport, the primary renter should be at least 21 years of age, and should be in possession of at least one of the major credit cards. A drivers license which shows a safe driving record should also be shown at the time of vehicle collection. Younger drivers may not be permitted to hire certain vehicle categories, and will pay higher rental rates. The additional costs involved are for young drivers insurance, and are applicable to each person registered on the rental agreement who is under the age of 25. The Vancouver Airport car rental companies hire vehicles that are arranged into various car categories, and customers will therefore receive a vehicle that is similar to the example shown for each category. The vehicles are also priced according to their category.
Smaller cars with lower rental rates from National include the Suzuki Swift, Nissan Versa and the Dodge Caliber, and these vehicles are examples of those found in the Economy, Compact and Midsize categories. They are ideal for single drivers or couples, and are an excellent choice for city driving. Driving in Vancouver is very easy, as the roads are mostly laid out in a grid-shaped pattern. Main roads lead from the city as well to further locations, such as the Highway 99 towards the U.S., and past Surrey and White Rock. Another main road from Vancouver leads north to Kamloops. Standard cars are similar to the Ford Fusion, and Fullsize cars may include the Chevrolet Impala. Premium and Luxury cars are available as well, and SUVs are often a popular type of vehicle to hire. Five passengers are ideal for the Ford Escape, Ford Explorer and the Ford Edge, while seven passengers can hire the Chevrolet Tahoe or the Chevrolet Suburban. There are even vans large enough for fifteen passengers, such as the Chevrolet Express.
Vehicles hired sometimes include equipment such as navigation systems in their rentals, but most of the time customers will need to request such equipment. From National, child seats can be hired, and they come in sizes suitable for infants or older children. National hand controls for disabled drivers can be requested as well, by persons with a lower limb disability. From the rental location of Vancouver Airport, hand controls are free of charge, but all other items will cost a few extra Canadian Dollars. All items should be reserved as early as possible to ensure their availability.
National, Vancouver Airport, will be happy to provide further details regarding their car hire services.
