I need a recommendation on best way from Canada Place to Airport in Vancouver. We plan on taking a cab. Are there plenty like in Seattle? Do they accept American Dollars? Or Credit Card?? I've noticed there is a train but just can't imagine doing that with luggage. (We don't travel light.) . Help please from those who have done this! We have prearranged travel to the ship prior to the cruise

Taxi services will take a credit card but you will be hit with a foreign transaction fee if you do not have a card with the FTF waiver. Many will take the US $ but will adjust for the conversion rate. Do ask before you hop in the cab. The cabs will be plentiful.

It starts a couple blocks from Canada Place and (getting on the correct colored line) will take you right to YVR. Hubby and I did just that in 2011.

It's only a few bucks/person and it's awesome because it's like an above ground subway that allows you to see most of the city as you're transferring.
