While researching a column on RV travel (that will likely run in the Toronto Star's travel section in a few weeks), I came across a what I can only call a "repositioning discount" from mega RV-rental agency Cruise Canada. It seems that Cruise Canada needs to move a number of standard and large-sized motorhomes from Calgary and Vancouver to either Toronto or Montreal. To entice drivers, the company is waiving the one-way fee (logical as the drivers will be doing the company a favor), throwing in 5000 free miles and charging a reasonable $24 a day. That price includes insurance and is a significant markdown off the usual $160 per day summer rate that the company charges for large units (plus about $350 for 1500 miles).
The deal is only good for travel between tomorrow and July 6. For full information, click here.
