Beware of shady rental practices. If you get a flat tire outside of Vancouver Island and are stuck in another BC town with a National Car rental agency, 1) they won't help you!, 2) they will charge you for a brand matching replacement tire after you've returned the vehicle a 2nd time!! While in Smithers, BC this summer driving on a pre-arranged tour with advanced inner-passage ferry tickets and hotels booked, the rear tire on our rental blew out. We spent/wasted a full day at OK Tire, while on the phone to 1-800 with National in the US (yes, there's no Canadian hotline), and the National car rental Nanaimo office trying to determine the best course of action. OK Tire, or any other tire shop in town, did not have the matching brand but they did have the matching specifications for that car. It was a Good Year instead of Continental tire. So I paid for it and returned the car at the end of our journey, still out of pocket for an extra hotel night that wasn't planned. 1 month later, sneaky National in Nanaimo charges us double the original amount paid plus $25 "admin" fees for a "Continental" tire. Their current BBB rating is an "F".
