  1. Default Vancouver BC to San Fransico CA

    Hi - newbie Oliver from Scotland making a first post.

    Can any kind person help with the genesis of an idea to drive from Vancouver BC to San Francisco CA this summer. Specifically:

    Is there a cost burden added to car hire across the Canada/US border? Is there a way round this?

    What would the top 15 must see sites on the route?

    Is there one good guide which covers the whole trip?

    Thanks in advance - great forum!

    Default Welcome!

    Welcome to the RoadTrip America Forum!

    A few things to consider when renting a car are:
    One-way drop-off fees are considerably higher than returning the car back to the original rental location.
    Under 25 years of age fees apply; most rental agencies do not rent to those under 21 years of age.

    How much time do you have to make this trip?

    You may be able to rent a car in Vancouver and drive it across the border, but I have some doubts that you'll be able to find anyone who will allow you to do a one way trip and leave the car in the US.

    You might find that it is easier to take a bus across the border, perhaps even as far as Seattle, and then rent a car from there.

    We were thinking of two weeks from Vancouver to San Francisco.

    Thanks for the advice about car hire - Hertz do it but soooo expensive! Bus is a good idea.
