We are a car rental company you can trust — after all, we had a combined experience of over 30 years in the business when we started this venture. Indeed, what gives us a slight edge over other commercialized car rental companies is that we are truly a family-run business.

In fact, the founders of Ascent Car Rental And Tours met on the other side of the world, and, mesmerized by the city — they decided to settle down here in downtown Vancouver. Now they are riding the waves of life with their new family and can often be spotted cruising around town together.

Rest assured, we know the joy and pain of travelling with loved ones — whether they are your kids, or friends.
On that note, this passion project is deeply rooted in our love for travelling with the family and exploring the beauty of British Columbia. That’s why we offer various services to ensure that you and your near-and-dear ones spend less time dealing with formalities and more time making memories.

And if it’s your first time in BC, don’t hesitate to ask our staff for directions, company policies, the best places to eat in town, and everything else in between. You can even book a guided tour with us to explore the architectural wealth in BC’s capital city of Victoria or enjoy a scenic car ride to Whistler.
