KAYAK’s top tips for renting a car in Tofino

  • Tofino has numerous iconic landmarks and hidden gems, and you are better off exploring the places with Tofino car rentals. Unlike public transportation that operates on fixed and preset plans, car rentals in Tofino offer the flexibility and convenience to adventure the city and the nearby locations. With car hire in Tofino, you are unlimited to what you can do and places you can visit. For example, you can enjoy views from Radar Hill, hike through Old-Growth Forest to Beach and Coves, go surfing at Florencia by Long Beach, Cox Bay, Wickaninnsh Beach, or Walk on Long Beach in Pacific Rim National Park.
  • Tofino is served by Campbell River Airport (YBL) and Comox Airport (YQQ). You will land at one of them if you fly into Tofino. Getting your Tofino car rentals at the airport lets you leap into adventure immediately after landing. If you land at YBL, the car rental desks are near the Security Desk and Luggage Carousel. The car rental desks at YQQ are within the airport terminal arrivals hall. The car rental providers operating on-site desks in both airports include National, Sunnycars, Budget, and Enterprise.
  • As a small city in BC, Canada, finding tiny streets and narrow roads in Tofino is unsurprising. However, driving your car rentals in Tofino should be manageable. But you need to be mindful of other road users. Jaywalking is still a concern in the city as pedestrians often overlook crosswalk regulations and may cross when unsafe. Watch out to avoid hitting them. Again, the city’s traffic authority permits motorbikes to ride in the same lanes as motorists. Sadly, they often disregard traffic regulations. Drive with caution when approaching or overtaking them. Drive on the right and pass on the left. Always make other road users aware of your intentions.
  • Tofino is known for tiny roads and one-way streets; encountering heavy traffic during peak travel is typical. Several residents access the city center with private vehicles, and few roads access the city leading to vehicles and motorists scrambling for position. Usually, rush hours in Tofino start from 6:30 am to 9:30 am, and the evening rush hours start from 6:30 pm to 7 pm. Planning your route well saves you from heavy traffic and will help you to avoid congested areas like commuter zones.

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.

I was nervous dropping my Budget car at the Comox Airport at 5am. No Budget parking spaces available so I had to put it in short term parking. (No cost but I was nervous they might not find the car). I did call when I got off of the plane and they had found the car so all was good. Janice

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.
