Buick Century Custom, rental car from AVIS (2002)

We picked up our rental car in the morning at Vancouver International Airport in Richmond. We had reserved the car at AVIS in Germany before our trip. The AVIS staff was very friendly: When they saw my height (1.95 m), they provided us with a free upgrade to a bigger car, and so we got this fantastic Buick Century Custom. Thanks, AVIS!

Off it went to the Tsawwassen ferry terminal. BC Ferries operates their passages to and from Vancouver Island hourly, so you usually should not wait too long before getting on board.
