KAYAK’s top tips for hiring a car in Comox

  • Cheap car hire in Comox allows visitors to travel in comfort and privacy without having to share their space with strangers or wait for the schedule of public transport. Hiring a Comox car hire is also more convenient than using public transportation options, especially if you have luggage or equipment to carry around. Visitors can drive to Mount Washington Alpine Resort for skiing, snowboarding and hiking, or to the Pacific Rim National Park Reserve for surfing, whale watching and beachcombing.
  • It's recommended to make a reservation in advance if you plan to hire a car at Comox Valley Airport (YQQ), especially during peak season or holidays. Car hire options at Comox Valley Airport vary from Economy to Premium and from compact cars to SUVs, and visitors can choose the type of car that suits their needs and preferences. You can also select additional features such as GPS, child seats or winter tyres. The rental car counters are located inside the terminal building, near the Baggage Claim area.
  • Comox is known for its wildlife, which includes deer and bears. Travellers using Comox car hire should watch for warning signs and drive carefully in these areas. There are many four-way stop signs on the roads, which will always require you to come to a complete stop and follow the right-of-way rules. Winter driving requires caution and slower speeds in Comox. Keep a safe distance from the car in front of you to ensure enough time to react when necessary.
  • The Comox Valley area typically experiences mild weather throughout the year, but there are still some driving difficulties that you might encounter when exploring cheap car hire in Comox.

Some areas of the Comox Valley can also be very muddy and slippery during heavy rainfall. It's recommended to drive with caution and check road conditions in advance.

Easy to rent at the airport.
Verified travelerJun 2023
I had booked the car online and had no major issues with either the pick up or drop off, however I would make sure you take a few pics of the vehicle before driving off as the form filling was a bit rushed.

Location awesome. At the drop off I was asked if I brought it back full. I said yes and instead of saying ok, he said May I see your receipt.. no reason to ask if you are not going to trust the answer.Would be better to simply ask for the receipt up front to confirm..he did the same thing for damages. Asked me if there was any damage. I said no and then he made me wait while he went to check. Just tell me up front that he was going to do a vehicle check and he could confirm it was full and undamaged.

I was nervous dropping my Budget car at the Comox Airport at 5am. No Budget parking spaces available so I had to put it in short term parking. (No cost but I was nervous they might not find the car). I did call when I got off of the plane and they had found the car so all was good. Janice

Paid a little more for Ford Edge(or similar) as it's a little bigger than the Escapes/Rav4s etc and I typically have a truck (to which there's none available) yet still got given an escape?! Didn't have the time or patience to contest getting the appropriate one so took the escape. Ready to leave then I'm told one tire has low pressure and I have to wait while someone goes to the nearest gas station and pumps it up. Sure enough by the time I'm returning the car 3 days later the tires at low pressure warning again as it obviously has a small leak. Pretty average stuff when you're paying over $300 to drive something for 3 days.
