  • A. Name, address, phone number and credit card number with expiry date of principal driver, email address.
  • B. Name and driver’s license number of additional driver's)

    their camping trip.

Please bear in mind that pick ups are between 10:00 AM to 03:00 PM in the afternoon. Depending on how busy they are, departure times cannot be guaranteed early so you could be rushed to make it to the ferry on time, or miss the ferry completely. Not a very good start to the holiday. The same problem could happen when you book a ferry from Vancouver Island to the mainland in the morning of vehicle return; You will not arrive on time to drop off the vehicle and will be charged a late fee. Therefore we kindly ask you not to make ferry reservations for same day as pick up or drop off.

Renters’s Responsibility:
Every renter must have a valid credit card to be able to rent an RV from Go West. The renter is responsible for the vehicle and will be charged for any misuse or undue care, mechanical damage due to negligence in vehicle operation or failure to provide normal maintenance.

This includes checking engine oil, fluids and coolant levels at each refuelling, as well as reporting mechanical failures immediately. Necessary repairs over CAD $75 require / need prior authorization from our office. Insurance coverage is void by not reporting any damage to Go West and Insurance Company within 24 hrs.

Coast to Coast Special:
Go West are proud to introduce an innovative and successful package that enables the customer to enjoy ALL of Canada! Why explore only one coast when you can see them both!

Here is how it works:
You fly into Toronto, spend your first night in an airport hotel and goes through the company’s rental and orientation process the next morning. You leave Owasco, Toronto for a minimum 10 day tour of the East.

After dropping off the vehicle at Toronto, you board a flight bound for Vancouver or Calgary. You then proceed to
Go West for the second leg of the tour and picks up an identical vehicle. As a result, you will not have to undergo a second motorhome orientation. Then you leave Calgary or Vancouver for a minimum 10 day tour of the West. The vehicle may be dropped off in Vancouver or Calgary.

Choose from Calgary, Toronto or Vancouver to start your trip.
One way rentals can be applied between Calgary and Vancouver. One way rentals require a minimum rental of 10 days and a one way fee applies. (you must book the same size vehicle at both locations)
