how to choose
the right van hire

If you’re going on a family holiday, there’s no point of a two-seater convertible van hire. So, make sure your car hire has enough seats available.

If you’re booking your van hire online, it should show exactly how many seats the van has. Smaller cars tend to have only two seats in the back. Whereas larger models will have three, for example. If you have passengers in the back, it’s worth booking a van with at least two doors, so everyone can get in and out easily.

Consider how much boot space you’re going to need, bearing in mind that everyone’s luggage will have to fit in the trunk as roof bars and boxes are rarely, if ever, an option when hiring a van. The only exception to this is if you’re going skiing – you can get a rental car fitted with a ski rack. 

Leaving luggage on view on the back seats isn’t a good idea either, as it can attract thieves and may compromise your travel insurance. 

Although the idea of hitting the open road in a V8 gas-guzzler is undoubtedly tempting, you might not want to blow half your holiday budget on fuel. So, working on the assumption that smaller vans are generally more fuel efficient, map out how far you’ll be travelling, then calculate roughly how much fuel this will use in your preferred type of van. 

Specific models can’t be guaranteed at the rental counter, so think the class of van instead, such as compact, economy, luxury, SUV, etc. Also keep an eye out for the rental van company’s fuel policy, a ‘full-to-full’ fuel policy is the most common, and often the best choice, especially for road-trippers.

If you’re travelling with children, check the child seat policy of the country you’re travelling to, as it may be different to what you’re used to. If you need child seats, it’s best to reserve them at the same time you book your hire van, as they won’t come as standard. The same goes for GPS/satnav systems. You’ll pay for these when you arrive to pick up your van, and rental companies can’t usually guarantee them. These extras are charged at a daily rate, so you can save money by taking your own. And, if you’re travelling anywhere hot, make sure the van has air conditioning, or your road trip might quickly become too hot to handle.

Upgrading to the bigger or faster model can be very tempting, especially if it looks like it won’t add much to the overall cost. But that little extra each day can quickly add up over the course of one, two or three weeks’ worth of car hire. And then there are the added fuel costs, bigger security deposit and higher excesses that come with bigger vans. Once you’ve chosen a model that comfortably ticks all your boxes, you can happily resist hard sell at the rental counter, and stick to your budget.

Then there’s just one final thing to bear in mind – not all road trips are created equal, so you’ll have to match your van to the type of trip you’re taking.
