Escape the city this summer with these Vancouver Island road trip tips


One of the best parts living on Vancouver Island is that so many iconic spots are just a road trip away – the ability to hit the highway and find yourself on a mountain (or in a forest, or on a beach) within hours is truly magical!

Of course, these kind of trips always take at least a little bit of planning (no matter how tempting it is to just get in the car and drive!), and luckily local carsharing co-operative Modo can help with the most important part of the best road trips – the perfect vehicle to get you there.

On top of their impressive and diverse fleet of vehicles, Modo has just introduced the ultimate in convenience and affordability – with their new Day Tripper, it’s easier than ever to hit the road and get trippin’ in style this summer!

Pick the perfect ride

Whether it’s an SUV for that surfing trip up to Tofino, a pick-up truck to fill with floaties for a day on Cowichan Lake, or even a convertible to hit up the cutest cafes along the coast, Modo’s got you covered with tons of choices under the sun – there’s something for everyone!

Take advantage of the all new Day Tripper

Starting at only $90 per day, with 250 kms per 24 hours included, the possibilities are endless!

With Modo’s Day Tripper, you can book the vehicle of your choice in advance or even on the fly – and all for one low bundled rate. Don’t wait on this one though, as it’s only available for trips between July 15th and September 30th. Even better, if the regular rate on any booking happens to be less, you’ll always get the lower price!

Check out what one happy Day Tripper had to say:

“It’s festival season! The Kia Sedona was the perfect Large & Loadable for our four-day trip, with loads of hauling capacity for all our stuff and five humans. Even better, the Day Tripper package, with 250kms per day bundled in, saved us a ton of money. With four Modo members on board, it was also easy to switch drivers anytime we needed a break on the road. We’re already planning our next Day Tripper adventure!” – Ly Vu, Modo Member & Ambassador

Get festival (or camping!) ready

(Camping in style / Modo Co-operative)

Whether you’ve got a ton of stuff or you’re just hitting the road on a whim with the clothes on your back and your best pals, you’ve got the option to size-up or size-down on your vehicle choice with Modo.

You can fit your camping gear, best outfits and your whole festival crew in the back of one of Modo’s minivans, or the entire family in a roomy sedan on the way to beach!

Have the time of your life without breaking the bank

(Family road-trip / Modo Co-operative)

Owning your own vehicle can get expensive, which is why carsharing is such a fantastic alternative – not only do you not have to worry about all of the expenses that come with car ownership, with Modo your insurance, gas and 24-hour customer support are completely covered. So save your change for that cute little roadside fruit stand you just spotted!

You can also make your off-island travel plans that much easier and cheaper with Modo vehicles at Departure Bay Ferry terminal, Tsawwassen Ferry Terminal, Swartz Bay Terminal, Horseshoe Bay and Langdale Ferry Terminal. With their “ferry fleet of eight”, you can walk on and walk off, save the big ferry cost, and grab your Modo on the other side.
