Why hire a 7-seater car?

  • Lots of space
  • Ultra comfort
  • Super to drive
  • Practical
  • Safety
  • Better visibility / Higher seating positions


If you're traveling with children, you'll need lots of space, that will provide comfort for you and your family. Of course, not all families need a seven-seater. Usually choosing a five-seater will save you a lot of money when you're buying a new vehicle. But it's a whole different story when the vacation time comes. When you're travelling abroad, going on a longer road trip, comfort in your rent a car is welcomed. And you'll need to pack tons of luggage. In those cases, your best option is to hire a 7 seater people carrier. 

When you're going on a road trip with friends or large groups, it is best to hire a 7 or 9 seater (depending on the number of passengers and luggage). 

Maybe you don't have children, and chaos or friends making a mess in the middle row, you just want comfort and safety. The answer is still the same: hire a 7-seater. Why? Because 7-seaters usually have higher seating positions which will provide you with better visibility on the road. They are super practical to drive and very comfortable. If your wife packed 14 suitcases, you really don't have a choice, you'll need that extra space 7-seater offers. 


Best 7-seater cars to hire

In 1980s outsized families were offered a car in which 7 people could travel. Renault Espace was one of the first minivans that was also usually offered for car rental. Nowadays such vehicles are getting more and more popular, and new models are entering the market every year.

If you need a vehicle with seven seats, you can choose between SUVs, MPVs or estate cars. Here are some of the best 7 passenger vehicles for your next family rent a car: 

MPV Car Hire

MPVs (Multi Purpose Vehicles) or people carriers are compact family cars. If you want to hire a 7-seater car which combines five doors, high roof, two-three rows of seating, h-point seating, and easy passenger and cargo access, MPV is designed for you. 

Ford C Max

If you want to drive in comfort there's C Max from Ford. Ford's 7-seater is offering a super practical interior and a fun driving experience. Great road performance and decent running costs make Ford one of our favorite 7-seaters to rent. 


Citroen C4 SpaceTourer 7-seater

Citroen's 7-seater C4 Spacetourer has a striking styling (as expected from the French), it's comfortable with a spacious interior. Its large windows give that extra spacious feel. If you can, pick a diesel model due to low running costs. 

SUV Car Hire

Sport utility vehicles are not ideal just for large groups and growing families, but also for all those who are looking for a type of estate car with off-road vehicle features such as four-wheel drive and ruggedness.  

Hyundai Santa Fe

If you want to hire a car in which you need to fit three child seats you should consider hiring Santa Fe 7 seater. It's a family first type of choice since it offers loads of passenger space, generous standard equipment, and it is indeed comfortable and relaxing to drive.  

Audi Q7 7-seater 

Family car hire doesn't need to be dreary, and that's why Audi designed this 7-seater. The third row of seats is designed only for children; it's comfortable and well built. It may be too expensive to buy, but if you're thinking of hiring a car, we suggest you choose Audi Q7. 

Volvo xc90


There are people who love Volvo, and there are people who are wrong :D Well, at least some say that. This car is one of the best options that you can choose, a great looking car and a safe and comfortable rent a car. It gives you enough space for all your passengers and for their luggage.

The technology in the car is top-notch and will allow the driver and all the passengers in the car to enjoy the holidays as much as possible.

Land Rover Discovery

This is one of the longest-standing brands and known for its sturdiness. It probably won't convince you with the luxury interior, but it will be a reliable friend that you need on your road trip. It has great fuel economy if you rent the diesel engine, and it brings loads of cargo space. You can take all the clothes that you need and more on your vacation, and the Land Rover will allow you to pack even more.

No worries, 7 people and all the luggage will fit into this one. It maybe does not have the strongest engine, but it does have the best off-road capabilities.
