Hire a 9 seater car

People carriers are a great way to travel comfortably and economically. They combine style, space and safety to give you an enjoyable driving experience. There are many choices from low budget to more expensive ones. At Vehicle Rent we offer a diversity of different brands of 9 seater cars. Seating is in three rows, where usually the second and the third row is foldable for even bigger cargo space.

All seats are built for comfort and safety and you can easily add child seats. These vehicles are usually higher than a normal car with larger windows offering great visibility. Depending on the model, there is a range of features that may be available.

Why you should hire a 9 seater car? 

  • The more, the merrier 😊
  • Great for a larger group of friends, work colleagues or extended family travelling together
  • You only need a driver, so the rest can relax
  • Minimise and optimise costs (fuel, toll costs…)
  • You only need to find one parking space
  • More leg room
  • Foldable seats with an extra place for luggage, when travelling with less than 8 people
  • Higher seats with better visibility out the windows
  • Great choice among low budget to more expensive high-quality vehicles

1. Make savings and enjoy your 9 seater car hire even more

You can optimise your travel costs when renting a 9 seater car. Instead of having two or three cars you only have one, so toll costs are lower. You can save as well with fuel costs, especially with smart driving. When searching for a parking space or parking your car in a garage house, you only need to search for one spot to save on parking expenses. In addition, you save on the cost of the international driving permit since you have only one driver. Check on our blog, in which countries you need the international driving permit.

2. Keeping the group together

Before renting a car you need to think about what kind of experience you would like to have, how much space, how long will you drive, how many of you are going etc… Renting a 9 seater car is a comfortable way of travelling and is suitable for many possibilities.

It’s perfect for a group of friends going on a city break or travelling to a concert or a sporting event. Instead of going with more cars, having more drivers and higher costs on toll and fuel, you can have the whole group together and lower your trip costs. Group travel can be fun and economical!

In this case, the passengers can get a comfortable sleep, while only the driver needs to stay awake. It’s a great choice for smaller sports teams, where the coach can drive, and all the players can rest before their next match. And the sports club will be happy with the financial advantages. A vehicle able to carry 9 people is a good option also for business travel, where teams of work colleagues must travel together to different sites or to trade fairs where also materials need to be transported. In this way, you can have savings on train fares or taxis and have more flexibility to better schedule your travel.

3. Family-friendly car hire

Want to spend some quality time with your extended family? Going to an amusement park or family city break and want everybody to go? Renting a 9 seater car for driving with your family is the best solution for a great holiday since you can take along your parents or grandparents, who maybe do not drive anymore, but can help with animating your kids on the road.

The seniors can stretch their legs and there is enough space for the pram. Since the 9 seater car offers great visibility through the large windows also your kids will have better travel experience and a great time watching the landscape changes through the window. 


4. Rent a car and get a proper insurance

With our partners we offer a great variety of 9 seater minibuses, you can choose from low budget to more expensive ones. Few car rental companies lend such cars to young drivers but set the minimum rental age at 21 or more years, depending also on the preferred model of the car.

We advise you to check the terms & conditions of the car rental company. Nevertheless, whatever you decide, we advise you to have proper insurance. When booking on our website we recommend our Relax package where you have Super Excess Refund option included. It covers your financial accountability for damage or theft to the hired vehicle, since damage to a bigger car also usually means higher repair costs. For more seamless travel you can also choose to have an additional driver, for this option and costs, please check the terms & conditions of the car rental company.

Before you set on your journey, check the cars service history, so that you can be sure that it was serviced properly and will bring you to your destination. If you rent your 9 seater minibus at a well-known rent-a-car company this usually won't be a problem. But if you rent at a lesser known company, make sure to have a properly serviced car.
