KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Courtenay

  • Car hires in Courtenay offer various benefits compared to public transport options. For example, hiring a car allows you to travel through the city at your pace and access remote areas easily by car compared to public transport. With a hire car, you can quickly drive to attractions across the city, including Strathcona Provincial Park, Mount Washington Alpine Resort, Seal Bay Regional Nature Park, Denman and Hornby Islands, which are hardly accessible by public transport. You can also visit nearby cities, including Cumberland, Comox, and Campbell River.
  • In Courtenay, you can hire a vehicle from Comox Airport (YQQ), about 12 km (7.5 miles) from Courtenay, and Campbell River Airport (YBL), roughly 53 km (33 miles) away. The car hires in Courtenay at these airports are located in the terminal buildings near the Arrivals area. The car hires in Courtenay at these airports include Budget, National, and Enterprise. Ensure you have a valid driving licence, identification documents, and credit card to hire from these airports' Courtenay car hire companies. The pick-up locations for the vehicles are outside the terminals in the car park area.
  • Courtenay has many four-way stops at intersections. Yield to the first vehicle to approach the four-way stop, and if two cars arrive at the four-way stop simultaneously, the vehicle on the right has the right of way. Courtenay is known for its wildlife. Therefore, when driving, particularly in rural areas, look out for wildlife crossing the road, especially when it's getting dark. There are designated bicycle lanes in specific areas within the city. Yield to cyclists on the bicycle lanes and give them enough space.
  • Courtenay's rush hours run from 07:00 to 09:00 and from 16:00 to 18:00 during work commute periods. Avoid using the major roads, including Cliffe Avenue, Highway 19A, and Ryan Road, as they experience heavier traffic during rush hours. The streets in Courtenay may be narrow and winding. Exercise caution when driving on these roads, especially during extreme weather and dark hours. Courtenay experiences mild winter, which still affects the road conditions and makes driving challenging. Consider hiring a vehicle with winter tyres to navigate the icy and slippery roads easily.

After you add on their third party insurance it was extremely expensive, worked out to be $143 per day. That is extremely expensive in my books. The car was clean though and exactly what we booked.

Location awesome. At the drop off I was asked if I brought it back full. I said yes and instead of saying ok, he said May I see your receipt.. no reason to ask if you are not going to trust the answer.Would be better to simply ask for the receipt up front to confirm..he did the same thing for damages. Asked me if there was any damage. I said no and then he made me wait while he went to check. Just tell me up front that he was going to do a vehicle check and he could confirm it was full and undamaged.

Paid a little more for Ford Edge(or similar) as it's a little bigger than the Escapes/Rav4s etc and I typically have a truck (to which there's none available) yet still got given an escape?! Didn't have the time or patience to contest getting the appropriate one so took the escape. Ready to leave then I'm told one tire has low pressure and I have to wait while someone goes to the nearest gas station and pumps it up. Sure enough by the time I'm returning the car 3 days later the tires at low pressure warning again as it obviously has a small leak. Pretty average stuff when you're paying over $300 to drive something for 3 days.
