Do I need a special driver’s license?
You do not need an International driver’s license for your motorhome trip in BC and USA. All you need is your regular valid drivers license. Only persons named on the contract are permitted to drive the rented vehicle. More than one person can be registered as driver without any additional fee.

Where is your pick up and drop off location?
Happy Holidays Motorhome Rentals is located in Gibsons on the Sunshine Coast. It’s a 40 min. beautiful ferry ride from Horseshoebay, just past West Vancouver. It’s already the beginning of your adventure and a great ride through paradise.  For clients booking an RV for 10 days or more, we organize a Taxi from the airport and downtown hotel free of charge.

Can we pick up in Vancouver and drop off in Calgary or vice versa?
Sorry, we offer round trips only with pick up and drop off in Gibsons. We pick you up at the Vancouver Airport or any hotel downtown Vancouver and bring you to the ferry terminal in Horseshoe Bay. After a very beautiful 40 minute ferry ride, we will meet you with your motorhome ready to go.

Are transfers included in the rental?
Transfers to and from our property are provided free of charge. (For rentals less than 10 days the transfer will be charged at cost.) We will arrange for a taxi to meet you at the airport or any hotel downtown Vancouver, and bring you to the ferry terminal in Horseshoe Bay (just past West Vancouver). After a short and very beautiful ferry ride, we will meet you with your motorhome ready to go.

You mention a ferry crossing to your pick up point, how long does this take?
The taxi drive from the Airport to the ferry terminal is about 45-60 minutes, depending on the traffic. Relax before you pick up your motorhome. The ferry trip is 40 minutes, we are very close to the ferry here on the Sunshine Coast. 1000’s of guests are enjoying this ride through beautiful Howe Sound.

Do we need to bring camping equipment?
No, included in our rates are “kits” that include linens, towels, cooking wares, utensils, etc. to make you comfortable on the road. In addition, the motorhome rental includes camping chairs, woodsmans’axe, cast iron pan, bucket, water hose, and some tools. When you arrive to pick up your motorhome, it will be travel ready. This means beds are made, the motorhome is equipped with all you need to be comfortable during your trip and gas, propane and water tanks are full.

If I wish to fit a certified forward facing child seat in a motorhome…
The child seat will have to be placed on the bench at the dining table. Please let us know if you bring your own or if you would like to rent a baby/child or booster seat.

Is it possible to purchase more than one km package in the hire?
You can purchase as many km packages as you wish before the start of your trip, but we recommend not to drive more than 200 km per day. Your motorhome trip is supposed to be a vacation and not a highway chase, right?

Is there any refund if part of a mileage package is not used?
We have two kilometer packages available (500 km for $190 and 1000 km for $370). Km packages can be purchased at the time of booking and/or at the time of pick up. Please note that there is no refund for unused kilometers. Extra km are calculated at $0.41 per km upon return of the motorhome.
