comment Things to see in Nova Scotia, that aren't Halifax centric
Peggy's Cove is worth visiting on its own account - lovely old lighthouse, cool rocks, wild waves (but don't get too close.)

comment Pick up full tank, return empty policy
Do you have a choice on the "return empty" thing? In the US I generally have several choices and that one is the least desirable.

comment How can I visit areas with unpaved roads in a rental car?
you pretty well always know you're going to succeed once you get to "how did you get my number?" - it's my favourite marker of a conversation that could, handled properly, go extremely well

comment How can I visit areas with unpaved roads in a rental car?
it mighr be useful to distinguish between "unpaved" roads, aka gravel roads, and "unmaintained" roads, which are far wilder. I would not expect to be able to drive a rental on an unmaintained or "unimproved" road. I would expect to be able to drive on on the graded and maintained road that I and my neighbours lived on for decades.

Have you actually seen such clauses? I lived on an unpaved road for years (it has since been paved) and have rented cars when mine was being repaired. Never have I seen such a clause
