What are the advantages of using a 6 Seater car hire?
The size of the vehicle that can seat 6 adults is larger than your average car. Because of that, the interior has more room for a better travelling environment. This larger space also provides ample room for the luggage most travellers will bring with them.
By hiring one of these larger vehicles, all 6 people in your group can make the journey together. This removes the possibility of one or more of them getting lost or separated from the group, as can happen when travelling in more than one vehicle.
Can a vehicle designate 5+2 accommodate 6 adults?
Technically, the answer is yes, but not comfortably. The +2 designation is referring to 2 folding seats back in the luggage area of the vehicle. They have been designed for smaller occupants like children due to the lack of legroom. Because of the location of the folding seats, less luggage will be able to pack into the vehicle for the people travelling on holiday.
Are there any 6 Seater economical car hire?
Is six seater car hire popular?
Because of the mid-size of a 6 seater vehicle, they are not very numerous or popular by rental agencies. The most popular and numerous vehicles for hire are economical, sports cars and vans. Because of this, there is a wide selection of them to choose from, which reduces the number of 6 seater vehicles. Since this is the case, the selection is limited and at times there is not even one available for hire. To ensure you can hire the vehicle you need, it is advisable to book your rental at least a month in advance.
It is important to be comfortable when travelling for business or a holiday. The people carrier category is preferred when in a group this large. It allows for all in the party to arrive together comfortably. To make this occur, the booking of the vehicle should occur no less than a month in advance. The farther ahead, the better.
