It's worth signing up with them. Go to usaa.com or do it over the phone. It's free and there's no reason not to sign up. Then you book it through the website using your account and this way it's legit and you get a discount besides for not paying this silly underage fee. If they check to see if your a member you will come through clean. If you want I can post the code.

Everyone else wanted over $100 :)

Yes just look for it when they direct you to the rental agency website

I don't think you can online but you should be able to call up the rental company direct. If nit just rebook your car and cancel the first one to ensure you get the right reservation.

true, i conceed the point :)

it's something like capilano suspension bridge...however google around as the real one costs a heck of a lot of change...i went to the free one which is just as good and obviously alot of other people who were there thought so too. its in middle of the most beautiful nature and there are hiking trails there so it should keep you busy for a couple hours...

well, granville island was a great choice...nice place to walk around and window shop and even pick up a couple interesting things

on the food perspective, falafel plus just went from dairy to fleishig and serves up shwarma and does quite a decent job at it too...great service though prices are bit high but still considerably lower than sabra restaurant across town...would highly recommend it
