The slingshires car rental and camping car rental services in Vancouver are popular among young travellers and are among the most popular services in the city, according to data collected by Airbnb.
However, Vancouverites can also find a lot more affordable options from car rental companies like Thumb and CarRental Vancouver, which rent out car trailers, vans, and other vehicles.
The data shows that the slingshots car rental service, Thumb, is one of the most affordable rental services available in the Lower Mainland, according for example to the company’s website.
“We do not rent cars, but we rent vans and vans for short-term stays, usually less than a week,” Thumb said in a statement.
“We can offer a rental rate that is comparable to most other rental companies, even with an additional charge.”
The service does offer a 30-day cancellation policy and no upfront fee, which is similar to most car rental sites, but the rental rate is not as cheap as Thumb’s.
“Our rental rates are competitive with most rental companies that offer short- term rentals in Vancouver, and we can match these rates to any car rental company in the area,” the company said.
“If you are looking to rent your car for a short time or have no desire to drive, Thumbs is one option that you will find affordable to most,” it added.
“However, if you are a regular visitor to Vancouver, we encourage you to rent one of our vehicles for a longer stay, as they are more economical than a rental.”
The Thumb rental service does not offer any vehicle storage options, and it does not rent from cars parked in the lot.
The company does however have a rental policy, which will cover the rental costs if the car is left unattended in the car lot.
Vancouverites who want to find cheaper car rentals in the region should consider looking at Thumb.
The service does allow you to find a car rental in a few different places, such as the waterfront parking lot of Victoria Harbour.
The car rental website does not have a reservation option, but if you need to reserve a car for longer periods of time, the service can provide a quote and will arrange for the rental to be done for you, according Airbnb.
“In the case of a rental, we will try to find the car, and if it is in the reserved lot, we’ll provide a refund if you do not get your car back within 48 hours,” Airbnb said.
