We have created a list with popular overland and RV rental companies around Vancouver in British Columbia, that rent off-road (overland) vehicles and/or campers. Renting a vehicle is a great way to cover large distances in Canada and to spend nights in the outdoors. When you are not sure where to drive your rental camper, van or 4×4, all companies on our list below provide you with information of (adventurous) routes and destinations to ensure you get the best travel experience in the outdoors of British Columbia.
Justgo Vans, van rentals on Vancouver Island
Almost everyone who rents a Volkswagen Westfalia with Justgo Vans on Vancouver Island rates this company with 5 out of 5 stars. The experience of driving around Vancouver Island and camping in a vintage VW T2 Westfalia or VW Eurovan seems to be a truly unique outdoor experience. Compared to the rates of luxury RV rentals, not only will you save on cash but you will have a more intense camping experience. Good to know before making your travel itinerary at Justgo Vans, is that their rentals can only be driven on Vancouver Island.

Justgo Jeeps, 4×4 with rooftop tent for your camping adventure
Yes, Justgo Jeeps is from the same owner as Justgo Vans. In 2019 Justgo introduced their new super cool Jeep Wranglers fleet. The 4-door Jeep Wranglers are equipped with iKamper hard shell rooftop tents (awesome), and all the equipment you need for an ultimate camping road trip is included with the Jeep. You will only need to buy some groceries and you are ready to (Just)go… In contrast to the vans of Justgo, you are allowed to take their Jeeps off Vancouver Island and discover more of British Columbia.
