Visiting Vancouver from Seattle and then Victoria. Train or rent a car?

Jump to last reply

What do people suggest on transportation from Seattle to Vancouver (we plan on going to Victoria as well)

My original plan was to drive to Vancouver(then people scared me with the border delays), take the car on the ferry to Victoria, and then ferry to Port Angeles and then drive back to Seattle from there.

Would train to Seattle, rent a car in Vancouver be a better idea? I know that the clipper costs more, about $89 per person.

The car would be a lot more flexible but of course we would pay for it in parking costs.

Suggestions welcome.

We're flying in really late in Seattle as well, around 11:10pm. Would any rental counters be open? How early do they open the next day?
