FAQ RV Rental Canada – USA - ALASKA      

Border Crossing Traffic

If you rent from one of our rental stations within the USA or Canada, it is permitted to cross borders and drive within the two countries. Note: Canadian Citizen may not rent within the USA and drive to sCanada or VS. For further information please contact local authorities.

Campground Reservation


If you arrive until 1:00/2:00 pm during the peak season (July & August) you should have no problem at all to secure space on most campgrounds. Thus, some highly frequented scenic spots – usually within the Banff/Jasper/Yoho/Lake Louise National Park Area – are filling up quickly. The same applies if you plan to travel from Canada to the US National Parks such as Olympic, Mount Rainier, Glacier, Yellowstone and Yosemite. Accordingly, we recommend advance online reservation for a marginal service fee through the US or Canada National Park Service. Most credit cards are accepted. If you plan to travel during the off -season we generally do not recommend to pre-secure space. Go as you please and overnight where ever you like. Please Note: we do not provide any campground advance reservation services.

At KOA and other privately operated campgrounds the nightly fees are from $10.00 - $25.00 Most of them are providing showers, electrical hook-ups, dump station, swimmingpool, laundry and a small convenience store.
