How Much Does It Cost To Rent An RV In Saskatchewan?

With a population of 1.174 million in the entire province, it’s easy to forget about Saskatchewan. Filled with flatlands and small cities, you may only think to stop in the province overnight while making your way cross-country. However, you should definitely rethink that if that’s your only plan!

The two most well known cities in Saskatchewan are Regina and Saskatoon, but there are so many great places to park your RV and enjoy what nature has to offer. Whether you’re looking for an RV park or a provincial park, you’ll find exactly what you’re looking for in Saskatchewan. And maybe at a lower rate too!

If you’re thinking about renting an RV but don’t want to go to any touristy spots, then this province is right for you. Renting an RV with RVezy is not only easy, but it’s fun, rewarding, and you’ll be able to make memories with whoever you’re going with. The best part? You can choose whatever model of RV you want that adheres to your budget.

Rental Rate (Weekly: $1000 - $2300)

These options in Saskatchewan seem more expensive than what’s available in British Columbia. However, you’re getting more bang for your buck with the options in this small province.

There are a few different classes of motorhomes. While in British Columbia, a lower class RV would be less expensive than a higher class, that’s not the same for Saskatchewan. The amount of room on the RV may be more as well, which means you’ll be able to split the cost with more people.

Cost per night: $86

Sticking to a private company such as RVezy allows you to not run into any trouble. You can also rent motorhomes on advertising services such as Kijiji, however, you may be charged with hidden fees and there is no guarantee when it comes to insurance. With RVezy, these are things you do not have to worry about.

Campground Fees (Daily: $10)

According to To Do Canada, daily campground fees in Saskatchewan are only $10. This does not include vehicle park entry permit fees and nightly camping fees. You can view the fees below:

Nightly Camping Fees

  • Nightly full service and electric sites will increase by $2.
  • Full Service: $42.00
  • Electric: $32.00

Vehicle Park Entry Permit

  • Annual: $75.00
  • Weekly: $40.00

If you’re looking to limit your spending on campgrounds, no worries. A ton of Northern Saskatchewan's forests are on crown lands, which means you can camp on it for free. Some crown land is off limits but you’re allowed to stay there for up to 21 days if you’re a Canadian resident.

You can also stop by a Walmart or Canadian Tire in a city nearby and ask permission to stay there overnight.

Saskatchewan Is Filled With RV Parks, But How Much Are They?

All RV Parks are different, that’s what makes each of them fun to visit. However, if you’re trying to stay on budget, you may not want to go to one that has 5 stars and all the amenities. Here is a list of a few different options and prices if you’re interested in staying at an RV park:

Insurance

One thing you can scratch from your budget is insurance. Not because you don’t need it, would you drive a car without insurance? But it’s already included in the cost!

The insurance that RVezy provides is available throughout all of Canada, so you’ll be covered during your trip to Saskatchewan. Through Intact Insurance, they offer a few forms of protection:

  • 24/7 Roadside Assistance
  • Protection for renters
  • Protection for owners

Protection for renters has a ton of coverage options, as well as roadside assistance. No matter something happens at 4 am or 4 pm, you won’t be alone.

Protection for owners is similar, but you’ll be in peace knowing that the RV you own is being taken care of while rented.

You can enjoy your trip without worrying about all of the “what ifs” that may come to mind, especially if it’s your first time renting. You can read more on the insurance policy here.

Gas ($300 - $1300)

One item you can’t forget to put into your budget is gas. While necessary, it’s unfortunately the most expensive part about renting an RV. Gas prices in Saskatchewan are just as expensive as the rest of the country.

According to Global Petrol Prices, in the last few months, Saskatchewan gas prices have varied between 1.23 cents a litre to the lowest being 1.19 cents a litre. However, those prices weren’t even for the summer months which is when gas prices tend to spike.

If you’re looking to keep an eye on gas prices for your trip, you can use great apps such as GasBuddy or take advantage of your Costco membership as they usually have the lowest gas prices.

In case you want to save a few bucks on gas, it’s recommended that you go with a smaller RV so you don’t have to fill up a big tank. Anything from a Class C to D is best, or you can tug along a travel trailer to save even more.
