The freeway system links all the major cities and towns together, making the driving experience easy and fast. However, note that driving in British Columbia can be different from driving in most other places. The roads are usually well maintained but sometimes narrow and winding, so take it slow. Don't be alarmed if you encounter an occasional animal crossing the road. The speed limit is generally 100 km/h unless posted otherwise.
Under the British Columbia Motor Vehicle Act, you must be at least 21 years of age to hire a car. However, some car hire companies will charge a “young driver fee” to drivers between the ages of 21 and 24 years to cover the increased risk of accidents and damage, while others only lend certain classes of vehicles to drivers under 25 years of age.
