9 Seater Car Hire

Popular 9 Seater car hire locations

The USA is a popular travel destination for family van rental, with a high demand for 7 and 8 seater car hire Orlando and Orlando van rental.

Last reviewed May 2024 by MPV editorial team

9 seater car rental is a popular option for families or small groups. All rental companies will keep 9 seater vans, but the numbers will be less for the more run-of-the-mill categories. As such, if you need to rent a 9 seater, you must do so well in advance of your travel dates to ensure the 9 seater will be available. The MPV rentals website specialises in the renting of multi seaters. To book a 9 seater van, enter your travel dates and select the van of your choice and complete the booking online.

Many occasions exist when travelling as a group is more convenient than renting several small cars. The advantages include less fuel costs. The option to hire a larger 9 seater van also provide that added space which will provide you with a more comfortable trip compared to several small cars. 

We also advise booking slightly larger than need. For example, if you are a group of 8 should really book a 9 seater to give that extra luggage space and make the experience special for all the occupants. Some 7 seater car rentals such as the Zafira use the two rear seats to provide 5 plus 2 seats. So if you need a 7 seater with decent luggage space it is best to book either the full size 7 seater or better still opt for the 9 seater, and you will have the at extra critical luggage space that is needed.

Advantages of Renting a 9 Seater Include:

  • More Legroom, More Comfort
  • Everyone stays together in the one vehicle
  • Can be Cheaper than hiring two small cars, less spend on fuel and less spend on toll fees..

If you are searching for a 9 seater car to rent, MPV rentals can help you. MPV rentals can provide you with a good selection of 9 seaters to hire. So if you are off on to the Zoo or the amusement park and wish to travel as a group or being members of the extended families, this is the best option. At the same time, be aware that for the reason of practicability for group travel, these minivans are always in high demand. In order to not be disappointed, please book your minivan well in advance of your proposed travel dates. This is especially true if the rental is needed for fixed dates like a holiday. In fact, it may be prudent to get your 9 seater confirmed before buying the flight and other parts of the holiday.

9 Seater Car Hire FAQ's

Do I need a special licence to rent a nine seater minibus like a Mercedes Vito?

All 9 seater are available for rent with a standard driving licence from car rental companies. A 9 seater is not in a minibus category, so if you live in the UK, the basic B licence allows you to get behind the wheel of 9-seat minibuses.

What is the minium age to rent a 9 seater? 

This will vary slightly for each car rental company, as such we advise entering your correct age into the booking engine and that will restrict the vehicles permitted based on your age. In addition, check with the supplier terms for any specific licence requirement to rent out the 8 seater minivan category.

For exact supplier conditions and rules, please check the supplier rental terms.
