Family Car Hire is a synergy of car rental services needed when traveling with the family or with a group of friends.
From people carriers or 4×4 rentals to a large variety of extra services and accessories, all contribute to a perfect family holiday.
We all love holidays. But sometimes planning a vacation gets harder when travelling in large groups. Hiring extra services or accessories become a necessity and sometimes the car rental suppliers take advantage of that.
There are lots of questions that need to be answered before a trip involving more passengers. We are here to discuss all the options you have, to answer to all your requirements and present you all the suitable solutions our suppliers can provide at your desired location.
What car hire size will best fit my needs?
What size of hired car would be the best for you? Would you need a 9-Seater, a 7-Seater or just a small car? An Economy car for example, would fit 5 passengers, however you’d be able to bring only 1 large and 1 small luggage, as the boot space is quite limited.
A Luggage Rack would be an option in many cases. However, the suppliers can sometimes run out of extras, so there’s a chance you may find out at the desk that they don’t have any Luggage Racks available. So probably the best option is to ensure that your boot has enough space for all your luggage, or hire the smaller car and if there aren’t any Luggage Racks available, just ask for an upgrade at the desk. Would not recommend this though during the peak season.
What extras do I need when travelling with children?
Is it worth hiring a child seat? The prices for a child seat/booster usually start from £10 a day, but there are locations where it is possible to hire a child seat for a smaller amount of money. It depends very much on the rental period and sometimes an additional deposit is required. However, it is worth checking if your airline does not allow you to bring your own for free.
Is the counter inside the airport terminal? We can advise you about that, too, and select only those suppliers who do have a desk in the airport. However, for those who are willing to go for a Meet and Greet or Free Shuttle Bus option, might be able to hire the car for a better rate, as these suppliers tend to have lower prices.
Waiting for a branch to open is a big problem when travelling with children for example and Out-of-Hours Pick Up and Drop Off services come in very handy if your flight is not scheduled at a convenient time. Let us know if you have a early or late fly and will discuss directly with the suppliers on your behalf.
If there is a long road ahead of you, you might pay attention to the Mileage Policy and consider only hiring a car with Unlimited Mileage included. Also in this case, an Additional Driver might come handy. The good news is that in many locations this service comes for free.
