Q&A - Winter Tires & Rental Cars
I live in Vancouver and My friends and I are thinking of going to the Clayoquot Oyster Festival in Tofino in late November, but I remember the Pacific Rim Highway was signposted "use winter tires or carry chains between October and April". I have tried asking many car rental companies and none of them have winter tires, and could not confirm winter tires availability for November. Do you know what we could do in this case?
I have a friend visiting from abroad for this event and I am also thinking of taking her to the Okanagan and potentially to Banff. I have never been to Banff myself, and from what I heard, we really should have winter tires for the drive to Banff?
