My husband and I had such a wonderful time driving Betty around the island! I highly recommend! Isla and Tony are so kind and helpful, they were wonderful to rent from. The camper van was cozy, had everything you need for camping, and was great to drive!

Betty is a pleasure to drive, the van is well equipped and perfect for a long trip either in the island or in the mountains. Isla has been the most helpful and I couldn’t recommend to rent with her more!

Betty was a perfect way to get around Vancouver Island. Not only is she pretty, but she also drives very well and is very comfortable. The camper comes with everything you need. Isla and Tony were very friendly, helpful, and accommodating.
