Fetch your suitcase, exit the gates of Vancouver, BC Airport (YVR-Vancouver Intl.), and pick up your rental car. Which one you hop into depends on where you’re going. If you’ll be mainly driving in downtown Vancouver, around 7 miles from the terminal, you’ll want something zippy. A compact car with good handling will suit those bustling city streets. But with so many things to see, like the stunning foothills of the surrounding region, there’s a good chance you’ll rack up those miles. A bigger vehicle, like an SUV or a full-size car, will make longer road trips a joy.
