Unlimited Kilometre RV Rentals

Do you Really need an Unlimited Kilometre RV Rental?

Many people want unlimited kilometres included when they rent an RV. There are a few things to consider when deciding if you really need unlimited kilometres for your RV rental. How many kilometres are you actually going to drive? How many days are you planning on travelling? Are your RV rental travel plans realistic? Will the RV rental company allow you to travel that many kilometres in one of their RVs?

Map out your trip

The first thing that you want to do is map out your trip. How many kilometres is your trip going to be? Most RV rentals come with 100 km a night or they let you purchase 500 km packages or both. Unlimited kilometres are expensive, do you really need them? Remember you do not want to spend your whole trip driving. This makes for very long days, gives you no time to explore this beautiful country and can be boring, especially for your passengers. So is it realistic to travel all those kilometres? Can you consider adding a few extra days onto your trip or do you just need to choose a shorter trip? Then there is the rental company. Not all RV rental companies offer you unlimited kilometre RV rentals. Putting lots of kilometres on any vehicle in a short period of time puts a lot of wear on the vehicle. RV rental companies put restrictions on unlimited kilometre trip such as they may require a minimum number of rental days, or may only allow international travels to purchase them or they only be offered as early booking specials.

So decide, do you really need unlimited kilometres, then go through the quote program to see if unlimited kilometres are available for your RV rental. If you need help, you can always contact one of our amazing reservation specialists for advice.

Check out these great places to travel with unlimited Kilometres.

Ontario National Parks

Explore Ontario’s National Parks

At over 14 million people Ontario may be the last place you would think of to get away from the hustle and be at one with nature. The truth is that Ontario has some of the best National Parks in the country. So rent an RV from Toronto and head out of the city and let’s explore the National Parks in the province of Ontario.

Bruce Peninsula National Park

Bruce Peninsula National Park is a small park, with an area of only 154 square kilometres. Being that it is on a peninsula it is mostly surrounded by water. The most popular spot in this park to explore is The Grotto. The 45-minute hike (each way) leads you through giant cedars spiralling off cliff edges and through wetlands filled with native orchids and ferns. And if the beauty of the trail is not enough, at the end you will be greeted with a stunning cave filled with crystal clear turquoise waters. Parking fills up quickly so go early. The only complaint about The Grotto is the parking, but parking can be reserved online through the Parks Canada website. There are bathrooms and nice little spots to have a picnic lunch. Everyone who visits wants to come back, this is a must see.

There are many lakes in this park, Halfway Log Dump may not sound very inviting, but maybe that is why it is one of the quieter lakes offering day use. There are other lakes like Cyprus Lake that offer overnight camping.

Point Pelee National Park

Point Pelee National Park is a tiny National Park, just 15 square kilometres, located on Canada’s most southern point. This National Park is great for bird watching as it is on the fly path of many migratory birds. As this park sits out in Lake Erie with no cities around it makes for the perfect place to go star gazing. The park staff host lots of kids educational programs. Marsh Boardwalk is a great trail for all fitness levels. The two large towers provide amazing views of the ponds and cattail marsh.

Pukaskwa National Park

Pukaskwa National Park is located on the northern side of Lake Superior. A four-hour hike will take you to Chigamiwinigum Falls. Geocaching adventurists will turn their hikes into a treasure hunt, a GSP can be rented at the Hattie Cove Visitors Center or park kiosk. Rent a canoe and travel the shorelines for days without seeing a single soul.

Canadian Prairies National Parks

BC and Alberta National Parks You Must Visit

Canadian Prairies National Parks

The Beauty of the Prairies

When we think of the Canadian Prairies National Parks we think of flat fields of wheat swaying in the breeze. There is actually so much more to this area that we can miss if we do not take the time to stop and look. Saskatchewan and Manitoba are home to some of the largest deposits of dinosaur bones, wildlife and rare vegetation in Canada. Rent an RV and take a trip through the Canadian Prairies.

Grasslands National Park

Grasslands National Park is located in southwestern Saskatchewan right on the US border. This National Park is a great place for kids of all ages. The Badlands in the east block of the park are home to the richest source of dinosaur fossils in Canada. There are many events throughout the year that will allow you to accompany paleontologists to a real dig site as you scour the landscape for bones. A great way to spend the day is to take your rental RV on the Ecotour Scenic Drive. This drive is about an 80 km round trip, with lots of stops for hiking and stops with information panels that talk about the stunning landscape, rich history and active conservation of the area. Keep your eyes open as there is so much wildlife to be seen, such as bison, prairie dogs, lizards and ferrets.

Prince Albert National Park

Prince Albert National Park is located 450 km north of Regina and covers one million acres of land and encompasses 1500 lakes and streams. This year-round destination offers hiking, boating, swimming, and golf in the summer and in the winter you can cross country ski, ice skate and snowshoe. The northern section of the park is home to moose, wolves and caribou while white elk, deer and badgers inhabit the southern part of the park. There is even a herd of bison that roam the southwestern corner of the park feeding off of the fescue grass in this area. Beaver Glen and Red Deer campgrounds are close to the city of Waskesui, have full hookups for your rental RV and are clean and well kept.

Wapusk National Park

Wapusk National Park is located 1400 kilometres north of Winnipeg and is only accessible by plane or VIA Rail train. It is not a trip you will take in your RV rental but this astonishing park is still worth mentioning. This park lies at the transition from boreal forest to the arctic tundra.

Pet Friendly RV Rental

Pet Friendly RV Rentals

Pets are Part of the Family

We believe that pets are part of the family and that they should be able to come along on the many adventures families take. So ask us today about our pet-friendly RV rentals. Pick up and drop off locations include:

While travelling with pets may not be for everyone, pet friendly RV rentals are a necessity for some. I couldn’t imaging traveling without my dog. If you are planning on traveling with your pet there are a few things that you need to think about.

You will need to make sure that not only your RV is pet friendly your campground must be too. Call ahead and make sure the campground owners will let you bring your dog (or cat). Even if your campground is pet friendly you can probably assume that your dog will need to stay on leash while at the RV park. A good idea would be to find dog parks near places that you are planning on staying.

While you will probably remember to pack pet food, leashes and toys for your dog, here are a few things you may not have thought of. Always have copies of your pets vaccination records with you. You never know when you will need them. Make sure that your pet is microchipped and has a tag that has a current phone number that you can be reached. Also make sure that you have pictures of your pets incase you need to show people.

A pet friendly RV rental and a little planning will make it possible to travel with your pet. So make a check list and start planning for your next pet friendly RV rental vacation.

Not all depots will let you bring your pets, so please check the terms and conditions for each depot.

Vancouver to Texada Island Road Trip

Sunshine Coast Road Trip

We all love a good road trip. We get behind the wheel and drive. Some people like driving and just seeing where the road takes them. Others want a plan. This road trip from Vancouver to Texada is just that plan. We have laid out the whole trip including places to camp, things to do and places to eat.

Day 1: Vancouver to Bayside Campground

Leaving from Vancouver take Highway 1 W to the Horseshoe Bay ferry terminal. Take the Horseshoe Bay-Langdale ferry. The ferry ride is approximately 40 minutes long and you only pay one way. While on board you will sail through some of the most scenic waters, passing by Bowen Island, Gambier Island, and Keats Island. You may get the chance to see some incredible wildlife such as seals, otters, or even whales.

Photo Credit: Wynonna

Arriving on the Sunshine Coast, follow the Sunshine Coast Highway for approximately twenty minutes until you arrive in Roberts Creek. Here make a stop at Roberts Creek Beach. You will see a giant mandala painted on the cement. Each year the locals paint over the old mandala and everyone gets to fill in their own section. This small beach has incredible white sand that reaches as far as the tide goes out. Cool off in some of the clearest waters in B.C. then get back in your RV and continuing driving towards Davis Bay for lunch.

Photo Credit: CoastReporter.net

Across from the pier in Davis Bay is the Wobbly Canoe, a restaurant with a first class view of the bay from any table. Refuel with locally sourced food at this local favourite.

After lunch, continue on to Bayside Campground and RV Park. Settle in for the rest of the day and enjoy the beach volleyball court, nearby hiking trails, a game of horseshoes, or explore the bay with a kayak or paddleboard rental.

Day 2: Bayside Campground to Texada Island

After packing up camp head to Wheatberries Bakery to grab a quick breakfast or lunch such as muffins, cinnamon buns, soap, sandwiches, or burritos. On to our next leg of our Vancouver to Texada road trip.

Continue along the Sunshine Coast Highway for approximately 50 minutes until you see a sign for Dan Bosch Park. This is the parking lot for Ruby Lake which is another beautiful spot for a relaxing swim. Be sure to bring floaties, kayaks, or paddle boards because this is a large lake with lots of islands to explore.

Photo Credit: BritishColumbia.com

From Ruby Lake, it is just a short drive to the Earls Cove ferry terminal. The ferry is free going to Saltery Bay and takes about 50 minutes. Be sure to take in the stunning views as you sail through Jarvis Inlet.

Upon arrival continue along the Sunshine Coast Highway until you get to Powell River. Be sure to fill up on gas and any essentials before you leave because there is no gas station on Texada Island. There is a small grocery store and a convenience store if you need to resupply while you are on the island but don’t expect too much.

Proceed to the last ferry from Powell River to Texada Island (Westview to Blubber Bay). The crossing time is 35-40 minutes and you will pay the ferry fee in this direction. Head to Shelter Point Regional Park Campground to set up camp. This spacious campground has both beachfront sites and forested sites, either way, you can’t go wrong. Enjoy the sunset over the beautiful coastline and see seals, oysters, and crabs. Flush toilets, showers, and a small concession are available here.

Day 3/4: Explore Texada Island

Spend your time on the island enjoying the relaxed pace of the locals. Enjoy nature by beachcombing, taking a swim in the ocean, or walking through coastal old growth forest. The Dr. Kay Garner Nature Trail is located at the intersection of Gillies Bay Rd. and Shelter Point Rd.

If you are lucky enough to be there on a Sunday then stop by the local farmers market located at the Gillies Bay Ball Park from 12-2:30. You will find canned goods such as salsas and jams, local art, fresh produce, and friendly faces.

Photo Credit: TripAdvisor.ca

Explore the islands history and learn about the early 1800’s pioneer settlements at the Texada Heritage Society Museum in Blubber Bay.

Try to time your stay for the Texada Blues & Roots Festival that celebrates local performers from within 100 km. Or possibly go to the much larger Diversity Festival where a diverse audience of all ages are drawn together at the Shingle Beach Forest Service Site to listen to artists, composers, and bands from all over the continent.

Photo Credot: PowellRiver.info

If you want to enjoy more of the local art then go on the Texada Island Studio Tour. The artists work with everything from stain glass, jewellery, sculptures, photography, and more. Artists will be there to answer any questions about their work and share their passions.

Day 5: Texada Island to Roberts Creek 

Pack up camp and head back to the ferry to Powell River (Blubber Bay-Westview). Drive to Saltery Bay and take the next ferry to Earls Cove (you will pay the ferry fee travelling in this direction). Continue back along the Sunshine Coast Highway stopping at any point to enjoy one of the inviting lakes along the way. We are almost at the end of our Vancouver to Texada Island road trip.

Arrive back in Roberts Creek for dinner time and grab a table at the Gumboot Restaurant. Tables are available both inside and outside where there is a grassy area for children to play. Service is fast and friendly and the BCCLT burger and the Thai noodle salad are not to be missed.

theworldonmynecklace.com

Spend your last night at the Roberts Creek Provincial Park Campground. Your site will be in the middle of towering cedars, hemlock, and Douglas firs. The cobblestone beach is great for seeing sea creatures such as sea stars, mussels, clams, and crabs.

Day 6: Roberts Creek to Vancouver

Return to Vancouver on the Langdale to Horseshoe Bay ferry, wrapping up your Vancouver to Texada road trip!
