How to reduce costs of rental car for trip starting in central Oregon and ending in northern WA or B.C.?

Jump to last reply

I am just beginning to plan a trip that will begin in central Oregon (for a family event), flying into Redmond, and will take us up to the Tofino area of B.C. It appears that return flights and total car rental costs will be less if we fly home from Bellingham WA rather than Vancouver B.C. Are there other airports that I should consider for the flight home? (We will have the car for around 2 weeks total.)

I’ll probably be making a post about a potential itinerary once I’ve done more research, but I’d appreciate suggestions of things to see and do and places to stay in B.C. We’ve been in Vancouver city and Victoria (and may go again), but the area on Vancouver Island north of Victoria will be new to us. We like kayaking, hiking, flora and fauna, and local history and culture. There will be four of us (two couples); we will probably try to rent condos in some locations.

I am posting this on both the Canada and U.S. (WA) forums.
