Whistler Rental Cars

Whistler is about 218 miles from Seattle and 100 miles from Vancouver. If you are driving from Seattle, you will want to allow extra time for the border crossing & bring your passport or birth certificate.

If you are renting a car to drive to Whistler, make sure that it is equipped for snow. A four wheel drive vehicle is preferable to rear or front wheel drive... if the snow starts coming down, it may start falling fast! 

If you rent your car in Seattle, make sure you understand the rental agency's policy on taking the car into Canada.
