Ok but check out tires and the mattress as rock hard
Hi there, my wife and I recently rented a 22' van (Minnie Winnie) via IdeaMerge from Happy Holidays in Canada for 4 weeks. Overall we really enjoyed traveling around in the RV and it performed well mechanically. However I rated only an average rating as a few problems. The back wheels on the RV pretty much had no tread which I pointed out on return - would highly recommend future renters check this out on pick up - this was highly illegal and very dangerous particularly given we had some unexpected snow and ice which we had to drive on. Nothing happened (I drove slowly) but disappointing. Please be aware that all RV's use a lot of fuel so make sure you factor that into the costs (I think we averaged about 15L per 100km with normal highway driving and at CD$1.69/L - you have to fill up with the most expensive premium fuel it does cost a lot). The other issue we had were with the rock hard bed mattress (think a door and you are on the right track). This was very uncomfortable and didn't get any better even after 4 weeks of use. The good things about the RV were the heater (which we used daily as we had some early winter weather) and everything is easily accessible in one spot. A little surprising they have china plates and glass cups as I would have thought melamine plastic would be far more durable for traveling. Would definitely recommend renting a RV but probably would explore other companies even if it means paying a little more (particularly given the added costs of money and time involved in collecting and returning the RV to Gibsons Landing). By the way, I normally don't provide negative reviews but on this occasion, I thought it was important to alert other RV. Have fun because the Canadian Rockies are truly amazing place to travel and the Canadian people are some of the hospital and friendly people we have ever met.

Amazing trip to Canada
We were super satisfied with Ideamerge. The booking process were easy and they did a great service. Quick response to all our questions. The pick up at CanaDream went smooth with good explanation and introducing of the RV before we went on the highway. All in all we had an amazing trip!

My go-to people..
IdeaMerge RV Rentals - as ever, a worthy 5* experience. Having previously booked RVs in the USA, this time we arranged a holiday / RV trip in Canada. Pick-up Vancouver, drop-off Calgary. All was perfectly arranged via IdeaMerge with the best price as well, despite booking a little late this year. Quick and easy contact with Freik - always at hand it seems to organise everything! Excellent customer service, great price. Friends / work colleagues have seen our trips and always ask about RV rental - each time I always refer them to IdeaMerge. Ill be booking more RV trips in the future and IdeaMerge will always be my first port of call to arrange a camper van. Thanks once again Eric / Freik.

Great trip through Canada and the US over 5 weeks, but some equipment lacking.
Campervan was modern and functioned well, but we were disappointed with the way it was equipped, particulalrly for renters from overseas (70% of their customers) who cant bring along some basic essentials. The personal kits ordered were inadequate and we had to go out and purchase a number of items many of which were included when we rented off Fraserway before. Examples: Axe, sharp knives, barbeque grill, cheese grater, toilet brush, wine glasses, etc. Also, bikes could not be rented from Canadream.

We had an brilliant trip travelling around British Columbia and Alberta in our 23-foot motorohome. The booking experience was quick and easy, and the staff were so helpful, answering all our queries and giving us a thorough induction when we picked up the vehicle and dropped it off. Travelling in the camper became one of the highlights of the trip quickly, and made the experience of Canada amazing.

Trip around Canada
Dealt with Ideamerge and Happy Holidays for a 24 foot RV. Great introduction when we picked up the van and also dropped it off was quick and easy. A few minor issues along the way, but nothing to cause major concerns. just mainly due to wear and tear. Would recommend the team and definately use again if we get back to Canada. Thanks for making a great holiday for us much easier.

Ideamerge did a great job. We were super satisfied of the booking process. The campervan had qualities, but the mastresses were hawful. A part from that, we had a great time and made great memories.

Adventure in the Rockies
Frederik and the team at IdeaMerge were fantastic. We picked up an RV in Vancouver for 2 weeks in the Rockies booking it all online with the team. The service was great, the team happy and prompt to answer any questions and queries and all arrangements made as planned. The RV pickup and orientation was first rate. The vehicle was a 2017 model and like new with all you could need and it worked like a dream. As first timers we were abut nervous but everything was explained, easy and efficient. We had absolutely no problems with driving, parking and camping easy and comfortable. We had the time of or lives and the return was also painless and again the IdeaMerge team were fantastic.
I would certainly recommend them and appreciate their service and attention.

We decided to go and explore the beautifulness of British Columbia and decided to do it with an RV. It was our first time renting an RV and IdeaMerge & Ambassador made it possible! Our reservation was mainly managed through IdeaMerge - who found us a very nice rental at a Canadian renter: Ambassador. Located a bit off Vancouver, in Delta (approx.30 min drive from downtown by car), Jutta and her staff took very good care of us from Day 1 until Drop off.
The RV that they offer for rent are modern RV's (2-3 year old) in very good condition (ours had only 60K km) and the extra services that are highly recommended (BBQ set + all the necessary items needed such as cooking pan, towels, bedding, etc..) as everything was perfect!
To be short, very friendly people, Modern RV's, High level services provided by Ambassador & IdeaMerge - we highly recommend both of them and would definitely come back there!

Ambassador RV 3 week hire
I booked the RV in February for September, and because many companies were booked up, I went to IdeaMerge who rapidly sorted out an RV for me via Ambassador RV of Vancouver. So IdeaMerge were, prompt, efficient and, in February, all looked great.
Come September I picked up the RV from Ambassador and fantastically they were brilliant. The RV was exactly as described by IdeaMerge. It was spotlessly clean and very well equipped. Ambassador RV were very professional and efficient, and gave all the time we needed for a good explanation and handover. They couldn't have been better.
On the trip around BC the RV was excellent: everything worked perfectly.
On the return, although they were very busy with several RVs returning at the same time, Ambassador's system was so efficient that the return procedure was still very personal and prompt. No hanging around.
This was my first RV hire in BC and now I wouldn't go anywhere other than Ambassador to her an RV again. Fantastic!

IdeaMerge good - Owasco disappointing
IdeaMerge was very good and locking in the rate was a god send when the currency slipped the wrong way. I found contacting IdeaMerge simple and had quick replies. I was dubious about using a booking site, but really pleased. Owasco is a different story. Be careful about pick-up as the procedure took over 3hrs, the equipment in the van was missing various items and lots of broken equipment. When we found items missing from the van, the reply is 'buy the items and we will give you the money back'. This was fine, but should items not already been on the van, when you purchase an all inclusive package. When it comes to the vans, ours was a new 32ft Greyhawk by Jayco for 7 people. We were told his was new to the fleet, so got quite exited. What this actually meant, it was 3 years old and hey had just purchased it. I can hand on heart say that not quality checks were done on this van, so once we pointed out the door, shower door, missing TV, cables, gas bottles were missing, we final managed to leave after 3hrs. We are first time RV campers from the UK and the pick-up procedure was not slick or gave me confidence at all.

Fine RV Rental
Excellent RV rental through IdeaMerge and Ambassador. Booking process was simple and questions we had were answered promptly. We were taken care of very promptly upon arrival at the rental center and explanations were complete. The ladies at the rental center are lovely. No surprises at all. Last but not least, the unit was very well equipped in terms of cooking appliances as well as beddîng linens and towels. We rented a RV several years back in the US through the leader in RV rentals, the equipment was nothing comparable. We highly recommend both IdeaMerge and Ambassador !

Very easy from start to finish
We booked through ideamerge- which was an easy process. We were picked up promptly from our hotel and taken to the rental centre, where we received a warm welcome and very thorough introduction to the vehicle, as well as tips and maps on where to stick up in food. The camper was well stocked and beds comfortable. Charges were clear ahead of time and so there were no surprises. Holiday of a lifetime doesn't start to explain what a great time we had. Thank you.

RV rental Vancouver
We used Ideamerge to book our RV rental and found the whole process very easy. Everything went exactly as planned, no problems at all. When we requested some changes to our booking the alterations were made quickly with prompt information updates. The RV rental company we used was Happy Holidays Motorhomes in Vancouver. The RV was as described and in excellent condition. The equipment and comfort packs provided as part of the rental were comprehensive with many small items included which were very thoughtful. Having met other people on our travels who had also rented an RV it became clear that some of them were poorly equipped when compared to ours. So basically, bring a bag of clothes and your wash bag and you are ready to go. The collection, explanation of the RV mechanical systems and the return all went very well. We had a great time in British Columbia and a large part of the success of our trip was because Ideamerge and Happy Holidays Motorhomes are very good at what they do. I would highly recommend them to anyone planning a similar trip.

The folks at Fraserway were very professional and well-organised. From the moment they picked us up at the airport (on short notice), to the quick registration and thorough orientation, right up until the very fast and efficient return process, they did a good job.
The RV (23/25 motorhome) was almost new. It was a bit noisy driving across the windy prairies, so that you could not really talk or listen to the radio. The beds were comfortable and everything worked well in the unit.

Our motorhome booking through IdeaMerge was smooth and easy and they were quick to answer any questions I had. After confirming my booking with them I realised I had made a mistake and without any hesitation they let me change the booking. Paperwork was emailed to me quickly and when the time came to pick up the motorhome I realised we were going to be a day late and Ideamerge handled the changes for me with Canadream promptly and without any charges. The service was fantastic and I can't recommend them highly enough. Thank you Ideamerge for looking after us so well. We wouldn't hesitate to use you for any future trips. Robyn and Alan Schomberg

We booked a Canadream RV via IdeaMerge for our holiday touring eastern Canada this year. We were collected on time from Halifax airport and taken to the Canadream depot. The briefing was very good and the RV condition was excellent. No problems during our 2 week holiday and the drop-off in Toronto was simple and painless. We definitely now have the bug and plan to tour the west coast in the future!

We booked through Ideamerge with excellent results. This was our first experience of a motorhome and ideamerge could not have been more helpful, returning emails promptly, arranging pickups and last min change of plans.
Our motorhome was from Fraserway who were extremely professional. The staff were friendly and efficient. We accidentally broke a lever on the waste tank with no extra charge. Our flight home was early on the morning of our return and frazerway went out of their to ensure we were at the airport in time.
Ideamerge fraserway and canada fantastic. Stress free holiday.

These reviews are not really about Ideamerge but about the rental companies. Ideamerge is a booking agent and if you are lucky you get a discount. If the booking is correct then full marks but if it is screwed up then no marks so not much else to say. They are efficient and professional and didn't screw up so FULL Marks.
Our rental company was Canadream which is also a professional company and the people were helpful and friendly. We had no problems and treated the van with kid gloves. They have a curious add-on purchase which gives a discount on end cleaning and various other bits and pieces which is not cheap. This is curious as there is no charge for end cleaning. They are going to clean it anyway. What do people do, bring the thing back full of cr*p with the dirty dishes piled high? As long as you empty the tanks and leave it in nice condition you do not need this charge. Our van was 9 months old so no problem. Canada has fire pits in most campgrounds so a BBQ grill should be an automatic addition but we had to buy one and I took it home on the plane so as not to be too disposable in my attitude.
I would recommend Ideamerge, Canadream and Canada.
Louise and Henry, posted on 1 September 2013 , vendor was Fraserway RV Rental
We had a 23-25' RV with a slide out for 2 of us. We've hired a number of RV's and this was definitely one of the best equipped - good kitchen equipment plus pegs, a washing line, screwdrivers, a first aid kit (latter two not needed!) and an axe. Plus a spirit level! Only additional thing we would have liked was some levellers but we managed with logs. Bedding was also nice with cotton sheets (hate nylon ones!) and two big towels each for 10 days and two hand towels.
Pick up and drop off were excellent - and the handbook given with the van was really useful (even included microwave instructions).
We had no problems with the RV and really enjoyed our trip. Wouldn't hesitate to use Fraserway again and highly recommend them in Canada.

We had a lovely time in N.S., the camper was just what we had asked for (thanks to Mark in Barcelona who helped us via telephone). I have a remark, however, we were very surprised that the gas stove had no safety shut off (compulsory everywhere in Europe) and we paid 2X 75 CAD for bedding and kitchen utensils which were insufficient and of not too good quality. Nevertheless, we want to thank you for your support and wish you a happy winter.

Thanks for the follow up email. We were all very pleased with both the service and the vehicle supplied by Fraserway RV. It was a much superior vehicle to the one we received (currently driving) from A&M Motorhomes in Anchorage (A&M is not represented by IdeaMerge). The current vehicle is older and has very worn out seats and matress and we had to ask them to clean the inside before we would accept it.
I would happily recommend your company and definitely not the current company (A&M Motorhomes).
Thanks again for providing a quality product.

We picked up our RV in Vancouver & dropped it off in Calgary. The staff were helpful & the vehicle was very clean. A small measuring jug would have been useful, but otherwise everything necessary was provided. The biggest problem we had was that the oven didn't work, because of a manufacturing fault with all the vehicles of that age. Although we managed without, it was rather a nuisance! We also had a problem with a warning light on the dashboard coming on, & the gauge for the holding tank didn't work properly- even after emptying it showed partly full. We were very happy with the service received from IdeaMerge & particularly liked the all inclusive price which meant there were no extras to pay.

We picked up our RV from Calgary August 25, spent 25 days going through British Columbia, Alaska and Yukon, we have a very wonderful time, seeing the beautiful country, and have a very special experience. This was our 2nd RV trip, also the 2nd time rental from IdeaMerge. The 1st time was last year, we had rented a larger RV (over 30 ft) which was more comfortable and luxury, but was a little difficult for a 1st time RV user to handle. So this time we rented a smaller RV, this 22 ft. Okanagan Ford was just right for the Alaska trip, little packed inside, but had everything we needed for 2 people, and the best of all, we drove it around everywhere without problem, winded around narrow roads on mountains, can even do parellal park on the street in city, but we won't recommand it for family over 2 people, or big people to use this vechicle, it will be too tight. The staffs at the Fraserway RV Rentals (Calgary) were very friendly and helpful, the RV was in excellent condition, we'll sure use IdeaMerge again in our future RV rentals.

My wife and I were extremely pleased with the deal we were given by ideamerge. The service and camper truck we hired from Fraserway was fabulous and more roomy than we expected. We travelled from Vancouver to Vancouver Island then took the Ferry from Port Hardy up the inside passage to Prince Rupert. We then drove across toward Prince George, Jasper, Banff, Yoho and Revelstoke National Parks camping all the way. Then we haeded down into Okanagan Valley, Whistler then back to Vancouver. We both had a fabulous trip even though our truck broke down 15kms out of Jasper. The tire rod on the left wheel broke which nearly caused us to crash. However with alot of luck and driving skills I was able to hold the truck on the road. Fraserway were very helpful, they had a tow truck to us very quickly, put us up in a motel for the night in Jasper and had another truck to us by the following morning, which was driven all the way from Calgary. We would definetly recommend your service and Fraserway to others.
Thanks for help making our trip memorable.

We hired our camper truck for three weeks and travelled throughout Alberta and British Columbia. Both I and my now fiancee (we got engaged whilst in Banff!) had the most fabulous time. The camper truck was clean and practical, though when we return next year we shall hire a camper with a shower unit and a little more leg room. Good job we are a close couple as three weeks of having to visit the washroom with the door open could be uncomfortable for many couples/friends travelling together. We look forward to returning next year on our honeymoon. I wonder if there is a honeymoon special camper - shall have to ask the question!

We picked up a camper truck at Halifax for a tour of Nova Scotia for 3 weeks. This size of RV is ideal for 2 people and was in good order inside and out. Very good service from Fraserway Rentals and generally good campsites throughtout the Province. The Provincial parks are more spacious than the private ones and in our view better value all round.
Holiday spoiled by collapse of Zoom Airline!
Only complaint was the information on some of the tourist maps regarding projected times for journeys, which were often greatly underestimated.

We picked up our truck camper from Fraserway in Halifax on August 2, 2008 and toured with it for a week.
The pick-up and drop-off of the vehicle was satisfactory, but a bit slow.
I found the camper to be very comfortable and almost new. However, there was a slow leak in one of the tires which was known about by Fraserway at the time of rental. Instad of replacing the tire, I was told that I would have to fill the tire with air every so often. That turned out to be every day, which was something of a pain. I would encourage future renters to, if such an event comes up, ensure that the rental company replaces the tire before embarking on the trip.

We picked up the motor home in Carlgary. The vehicle was is very good condition, aslmost new and the instruction we got was perfect, however I would wish that all insuranches are included. We had very good time in the Canada national parks everything worked very well.

We had an excellent rental unit at a very good price from Ideamerge. They were very friendly and helpful with all of our questions and concerns. I would recommend them to anyone renting an R.V.

Writing now that I am back in the UK to congratulate you on your service and on your choice of motorhome hire company in Canada.
Go-West provided an excellent service with a nearly new vehicle that was the best equipped van that I have ever hired - and I have hired many times in Canada, New Zealand and Europe. Not only was the quipment comprehensive, it included several extra items that added to the already good experience (for example the vacuum flask in travel case; four place settings of crockery and cutlery for a single person hire; kettle, teapot & coffee machine; two leisure batteries: etc).
I am greatly impressed and will certainly plan to use yourselves and Go-West on my next trip to Calgary.

We picked up the RV in Vancouver and spent two weeks exploring Vancouver Island. The van was great, clean and with everything we needed, we especially loved going over the pass to Ucluelet.
We saw humpback whales and lots of bears and are looking forward to our next visit.

We picked up the vehicle in Vancouver on 14.09.2007 and returned it again in Vancouver on 29.09.2007. The staff in Vancouver was kind and helpful.
The only problem at pick up was that we were not able to persuade the staff that the motoroil level was at the minimum level. We were told that it is at the maximum level and our opinion about the minim level should have been the result of our bad meassuring. After 500 km there was an indication the level is at the minimum which could not have been without doubt possible if there would had been enough of oil.
After seven days the cooler in the top part of the fridge served only as fridge, i.e. without producing temperature below zero.
Equipment of the vehicle was sufficient and in good quality.
I visited British Columbia for the second time an I surely will visit it again because of its fantastic nature, fish and friendly people.

Despite a slight hiccup when we went to collect the RV (gas leak at the depot so teh road was closed) the service was good. The RV served our purpose and we travelled with no problems at all. The RV was comfortable and spacious. Thank you.

We rented a RV for 3 weeks via Ideamerge at Fraserway in Vancouver. The handling of the booking by Ideamerge was exelent. The only thing that went wrong was the additional ensurance. I think I have missed it in the long list of questions when booking online. Fortunately we could arrange this when we picked up the RV.
We rented a 10-foot truck camper and the sleeping cabin was new. We found this type of RV a perfect solution when traveling with only 2 persons. The service by Fraserway in Vancoucer was very good. We were helped by a dutch speaking lady. On request we got extra bed linnen and a toaster and afterwards we were not charged for the few glases we broke.
The only problem we had during our trip was that after changeing the gas bottle we could not get things working again. With the help of some very friendly people on the campsite we finally (after 2,5 hours) found the way how to regain gas supply. Afterwards we understood that this was a known problem and that it has to do with a leak protection. Opening the new bottle very, very slowly solved the problem.
I would recommend the use of a GPS navigation system. That makes traveling so much more relaxed.
Thanks to Ideamerge and Fraserway for the exelent service they provided.

We're two older West Coast (Vancouver) people who rented a camper-van to see some of the East Coast of Canada. We flew to Halifax and picked up the camper from Fraserway there. Found it as clean as if it had never been used. The rental company staff was very helpful and courteous. Free pickup shuttle to their site and they stored our luggage for us after we unpacked into the van. Our tour was 14 days and 2300 km around the coastal roads of Nova Scotia. The province is beautiful. Holidaying next to the ocean for the whole trip was a unique pleasure, and having a camper guaranteed we could make the most of the experience -- not having to close up in some hotel each night, instead enjoying the oceanside landscapes full time. The people of Nova Scotia are open and friendly, and they had much history and artistry for us to explore and learn about. If you do go to the maritimes, this camper idea is THE way to go. The communities are small. Unlike rural BC, where every town has a few motels situated on the highway route through them, Nova Scotia towns have fewer of such places to stay, other than B&B's. However, nice campgrounds are available everywhere, most of them very clean and with full facilities. We highly recommend what we did -- booked all our campsites in advance, finding them using the provincial 'Doers & Dreamers Guide' plus the internet. The result was that we had a lovely spot almost every night, never had to spend touring and travel time searching for a campsite, could instead just enjoy the driving from one place to the next, making sidetrips and stops along the way without worrying about each night's accommodation. We have never rented or used an RV for a trip before, and we REALLY loved it. The best part was the complete independence, being able to stop for bathroom breaks whenever and wherever, and being able to have our meals at any roadside viewpoint or picnic site or beach along the way. Even though the camper cost more per day than motels, we felt that being able to make our own meals rather than using restaurants easily made up the difference. We are thinking we'll do the same kind of tour of PEI, maybe even next year.

rv was as ordered clean tidy and ready to roll, and roll we did 1800 mile in 14 days what a fantastic place, a slight problem with a leak in the roof but was quickly sorted and back on the road. the price we were told was what we paid no add ons when we got their apart from the extra miles but that was our choice. thanks. nice doing business, regards ronnie.

Excellant service and attention to detail from all concerned in the Canadian section. Special thanks to Doug Bredesen who worked hard to get us on the road, when we'd booked late and fixed us up with another RV provider.
A great experience all round and no hesitation in recommending it to others considering this type of recreational adventure.
We found everyone in Canada went out their way to make our experience a very pleasant vacation.
Whilst our RV experience was with a hire company other than Fraserway, it was a highly commendable and reputable organisation who were very proferssional in all their dealings with us. Their van and services were exemplary, which presumably was understood by Doug in contracting us with them.

Dear Mr. Bredesen,
First of all i like to thank you for the handling of my questions.
Second, i want to make a compliment for your company and its workers for how we've been treated and helped all along the way. This have helped us getting to a jumpstart for a good and relaxing vacation as we needed, and i'm pretty sure we'll come back soon to enjoy the lovely people and counties of Nova Scotia.
With warm greetings,

My husband and I returned from our vacation last week and I must tell you that we truly had an enjoyable time driving around the Yukon and Alaska. We had an Okanagan van camper and it was the perfect size for the two of us and we had no problems handling it at all. Thanks for all you did to assist us in the rental arrangements.

We had a great 12 days in Alaska and the Yukon in our van. The range to choose from was really helpful and the presentation on the website helped us to make what we felt as the right choice - a balance between comfort and manouvrability over some 'interesting' Yukon roads. The staff at the vehicle pick-up were friendly and helpful and the vehicle was very clean and comfortable. We only has one issue which they attended to and they listene to feedback. We'd use Ideamerge for our next hire.
