Plan on a road trip in British Columbia? Jump behind the wheel of a compact car. Easier to park, terrific gas mileage, and better maneuverability are just a few reasons they’re the number one choice in rental cars here. When you cruise the streets of cities like Vancouver or Victoria, a compact car will make driving a dream.That said, British Columbia is well known for its foothills, rolling hills, and valleys. It’d be a shame not to skip town to take in those picturesque vistas. If that sounds like something you’d be into, reserve a full-size car or an SUV. Even if you don’t have plans to travel off-road, you’ll be thankful for all the extra legroom.
