Though you might suppose that taking a rental car out of Canada would work out more expensive than public transport, this isn’t always the case. It costs just $10 per day, with written permission from Rentacar Vancouver to drive south of the border with one of our cars.
It’s less hassle
One cheap public transport option is to get the bus. When crossing the border however, you may have to disembark with your baggage, take all of your things, and physically walk through passport check and customs in the adjacent building. This can cause a lot of commotion and inconvenience for anyone bringing heavy baggage, or minding children.
It’s more direct
Cut down your travel time significantly with a car hire in Vancouver for your trip to Seattle. Most train and bus journeys to Seattle last about 4 hours, while driving often takes much less than 3.
