I checked with Budget and was told twice that they do not provide pickup/return service from any of their Nanaimo locations. Costco also confirmed that.
National will pickup/return from their airport location to the ferry for $25 each way.
I am not sure about Enterprise's policies.
What are the closest Budget and National locations to the Departure Bay ferry terminal?
What should a taxi cost to /from those locations and the ferry terminal ?
How long should it take to get a reliable taxi from the ferry on Sat Aug 9 and return Mon 8/12 from the location to the ferry at about 1215pm , and what taxi company and phone number should I use?
