Subject: Re:Travel in Canada
Hi Michael; There is a surcharge for rentals within the Vancouver airport, but when we did this in Sept. we felt it was worth it for the convenience. YVR is a very user-friendly airport and we were in the car and on our way very quickly. This is the airport site that has excellent links to all manner of useful airport information, including those rental companies that are in the airport. http://www.yvr.ca/

Perhaps others will help with your accommodation query, as this trip we only stayed in Vancouver one night prior to departure at the Accent Inn. We thought it was convenient and excellent value for a stopover. They are a budget chain, and have some special deals for travellers, but I'm not sure if this is what you intended. http://www.accentinns.com/specials/drive%20bc.html
