mpvMinivans, MPVs and people carriers can all be hired at most airports these days and are an excellent way of keeping big travelling parties together as they tour around. When you’re hiring a people carrier, you need to think about the number of people in your party and amount of luggage they will be carrying. If you are on a tape budget you will want to rent a diesel MPV or minivan, as this will save considerably on fuel costs.

Try to book your people carrier hire well in advance of your travel date to make sure you get the best price possible. Many websites allow you to use a booking engine where you can input your travel dates and other information once and get all the available prices displayed, which will save you time and money. The devil is in the detail, so as you do your research make sure that you read all the small print. Make sure you know whether or not to bring the people carrier back with an empty fuel tank, so many people get caught, sometimes for hundreds of euros, so please find out what the company’s policy is on this.

Remember to find out how much the excess is on your people carrier hire and be aware that for an extra few euros per day you can drive your people carrier hire safe in the knowledge that if you do have an accident you will not be charged a penny. The following information will give you an idea about just some of the MPVs, minivans and people carriers you can hire all over the world nowadays.

Ford Galaxy – People Carrier Supreme.

For a prestigious comfortable seven seater MPV rental, the Ford Galaxy has to be on your list. It’s a huge, comfortable people carrier and it can be hired all over the world. There are loads of options when it comes to folding the seats down but with all the seats up seven adults can be transported in great style. Don’t let the external looks put you off, there’s no debate – this is a good car to drive.

It drives and rides like a much smaller car, the driver position is good and the Galaxy is responsive and surefooted. There are all sorts of bells and whistles if you’re hiring the titanium model, but even the basic models are well-equipped. Fuel economy is outstanding in the diesel versions with around 45 mpg achievable – the petrol engines aren’t as good so we recommend diesel every time.

Early models of the Galaxy had some reliability problems, but these have long since been ironed out, so trouble free motoring is assured. Although the Galaxy is roomy inside, if you do have seven adults in your group, and a lot of lugage, you will probably need to hire a roof box as well. Overall, the Ford Galaxy is a really decent people carrier and should be near the top of anyone’s list when looking to hire an MPV.

SEAT Alhambra

Without doubt the SEAT Alhambra is a great choice for families looking for a reliable MPV hire. Petrol and diesel engines can be had and fuel economy is pretty decent throughout the range of models. Inside the cabin, passengers have plenty of room and the cabin is well laid out. The Alhambra can hold its own against minivans twice its price. One small negative mark is that the Alhambra can be difficult to Park. The back seats can be a bit tricky to fold away but there aren’t many faults to point out on the Alhambra. However, although there are one or two small annoyances, overall this is a great choice for families looking to hire a 7 seater.
