Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal Car Rental Desk Locations

There are no car rental agents at the Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal.


Car rentals are available either in Sidney or at the Victoria International Airport (YYJ), both nearby. Sidney is an easy bus ride away, and this is what the majority of travellers do if they would like a car once they are off the ferry.

Alternatively if you are staying in downtown Victoria, it may be easier to catch the bus to downtown and then pick up your car there.

Victoria Driving Information

Driving is on the right side of the road.

All Swartz Bay Ferry Terminal rental cars are automatic transmission.

Your local drivers' licence is required.

An International Drivers' Permit (or IDP) may be required, especially if your local drivers' licence is in a language other than the local language (you may inquire when you pick up your car).

Victoria Driving Stress Level: 2/10

Victoria has non-aggressive, and slow drivers. The Pat Bay highway into town has several traffic lights, meaning that you will rarely reach the speed limit.


If you decide to explore Vancouver Island, drive with care. While the Malahat Drive (a section of the highway between Victoria and Duncan) is scenic, it is also dangerous, with more than its fair share of fatalities. Reduce the risk by driving in daylight, using designated pull-outs for gawking (otherwise, keep your eyes on the road!), avoid driving in poor weather, and adhere to posted signs and speed limits.
