Worried About Luggage Space?

When you come to hiring a car there are several different concerns that you may have, one of which is the space that you will have in order to fit your luggage in the vehicle. Since hired cars are different models to the cars you may own or have owned previously you are left unfamiliar with the amount of luggage space that is available.

Generally we cannot tell you which specific vehicle you will receive but we have a couple of suggestions based on luggage size, we wanted to particularly focus on informing people of the size of vehicles they should hire if they have a large amount of luggage.

The two options are people carriers and estates but what’s the best option for you?

These are cars such as the Vauxhall Zafira, Ford Galaxy or similar. There are two types of people carriers, the large true 7 seaters and the 5+2 seaters. The larger 7 seaters fit more luggage than the smaller ones, on the booking engine you can see what the suggested amount of luggage is, as an example…

Peugeot 5008’s, Vauxhall Zafira’s, Citroen C4 Picasso and Renault Scenic’s will hold roughly 7 pieces of standard size luggage.

Volkswagen Sharan’s and Ford Galaxy’s will hold one or two more than the smaller models listed above.

BMWEstate Cars
We suggest estate cars if you are only up to 5 people but are carrying a large amount of luggage. Estates are essentially standard sized cars with an increased size boot in order to fit more luggage in, Estates fit on average around 6-8 pieces of luggage. Some fit slightly more than others like the BMW 5 Series Estate fits more than the Mercedes C Class Estate, you can find out a bit more about some of the estate cars in our fleet by clicking this link
