Pick-ups and Drop-offs

Customer pick-up is available in the Greater Vancouver Area, including the Vancouver International Airport (a fee may apply to any place over 10km from our office). A $25 fee will apply if the customer doesn't rent a car after using our pick-up service. After-hours vehicle drop-off is allowed; the customer may drop off the vehicle at any Vancity Car Rentals Inc. location, but the customer will bear complete responsibility for the vehicle until one of our representatives have visually inspected the vehicle during the following business day. Late drop-offs will be charged for (at normal rates, for the vehicle you rented), depending on, for how long, you, the CUSTOMER delay the drop off.

Booked Vehicles

The exact vehicle booked by you, the CUSTOMER (by reserving online, phoning us or by any other form) may not be available at the time you want it; there may be other alternatives you can choose from.


Vehicle inspections are performed with the customer by a representative, before the vehicle leaves the rental lot. All damages must be marked down on the inspection sheet prior to leaving the lot. It’s the renter’s responsibility to ensure that they have thoroughly inspected the vehicle and all existing damages have been noted on the inspection form. Loss Damage Waiver (LDW) insurance is mandatory for all rentals - insurance costs are not included in the base rental rate. If the renter wants to use their own insurance, proof of insurance will be required.
