Know Before You Go: Boxing Day Travel Tips

Heading to YVR this Boxing Day or looking to take advantage of special deals at McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Vancouver Airport? If so, take a look at our recommended travel tips below. We have a comprehensive plan in place but we are expecting heavy congestion throughout the day on Wednesday, December 26.

Take the Canada Line

If possible, leave your car at home and take the Canada Line. For travellers, Canada Line's YVR Airport station is centrally located between our International and Domestic Terminals. As you exit the train, turn left for domestic flights and right for U.S. and international flights. And for shoppers, McArthurGlen is only steps away from Canada Line's Templeton Station.

Have a Parking Plan

If you must drive, have a parking plan in place. If you're a traveller, you can pre-book here. For those planning to use the Value Long Term lot, adjacent to Templeton Station, be aware that you may be delayed due to its close proximity to the Designer Outlet Centre.

Leave Extra Time for a Stress Free Trip

It doesn't matter your transportation mode - leave ample time to arrive at YVR or the Designer Outlet Centre.

Also, it's important to remember that traffic patterns around the airport may change to help mitigate delays. While everyone wants to get where they are going as quick as they can, safety is our top priority. We ask that you pack your patience.
