    Car Rental Nanaimo, British Columbia

    Reserve a rental car in Nanaimo

    Nanaimo is a city on the east coast of Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Canada. As of the 2016 census, it had a population of 90,504. It is known as "The port city." The city was formerly known as the "central city," which has been attributed to its original layout design where streets radiated from the shoreline like the spokes of a wagon wheel and its generally centralized location on Vancouver Island.

    As the site of the main ferry terminal, Nanaimo is the gateway to many other destinations in the northern part of the island: Tofino, Comox Valley, Parksville, Campbell River, Port Alberni, Rathtrevor Beach Provincial Park, and in front of its coast, Newcastle Island, Protection Island, Gabriola Island, Valdés Island, and many other islands of the Nanaimo Gulf. Auto Europe offers price match guarantees, large rental car fleets, and several convenient pick-up locations throughout the city, so finding a rental car in Canada is affordable and easy.

    Nanaimo Car Rental Travel Inspiration

    The indigenous peoples of the area now known as Nanaimo are the Snuneymuxw. An Anglican spelling and pronunciation of that word gave the city its current name. The first Europeans to find the Bay of Nanaimo were Juan Carrasco's 1791 Spanish voyage, under the command of Francisco de Eliza. They gave it the name of Bocas de Winthuysen in honor of the naval officer Francisco Javier Winthuysen y Pineda. When the Hudson's Bay Company established a settlement in 1852, they named it Colvile Town in honor of HBC Governor Andrew Colvile. In 1858 he became Nanaimo.
