B. C. Ferries has lowered RV rates as of April 1/10

Escape-ers (and other RV fans) who live on Vancouver Island have been plagued by high ferry rates, especially over-height charges. According to today's Victoria newspaper, BC Ferries has taken off the over-height charge effective April 1/10, though they have somewhat raised the overlength (now $5.25 a foot from the previous $3.60). The bottom line: I think anybody contemplating a trip across Georgia Strait with an RV might find it now costs a bit less than before, especially if they have a small rig. One could check this cost by going to BC Ferries web site, once they've posted the new charges.


The Road goes ever on and on
Down from the door where it began.
Now far ahead the Road has gone,
And I must follow . . .

Hey, that's good news for a change! It still is about a $300 return trip though (factoring in 2 passengers & 34' length)
