When planning your self-drive holiday, it would be best to remember the holidays in Canada. Most motorhome rental operators and their depots (as well as banks, government offices and schools) are usually closed during these days, and only a few would accept holiday pick ups and returns.
For finding a motorhome in Canada, enter your chosen dates and locations into the Quote Calculator on the right side of the page. You'll instantly get a list of available vehicles. A note will appear beside the vehicle details if the depot is closed for the holidays.
