Tips When Renting A Van for Your Road Trip

June 15, 2021, 14:43

Planning a road trip is exciting. It doesn’t have to be a hassle, especially when you choose to use a rental vehicle. There are so many advantages associated with renting a vehicle versus using your own: less strain on yours, extra comfort, group travel and more. With a passenger van, you get to travel together as a group, rather than having to coordinate between separate vehicles. It enhances the quality and enjoyability of your trip, so you don’t want to miss out. 

Marcus Allard Truck Rental offers a few guidelines when choosing a van for your road trip. Let us know if you have any questions. 

Think About the Number of Passengers

When it comes to any road trip, you will be spending a few hours in a vehicle. With this in mind, comfort is essential. Nothing is worse than exiting the vehicle to leg cramps from having little room to stretch out. Plus, elbow room will let your passengers feel like they can breathe. You want to maximize comfort and legroom, so think about how many people are going on the road trip with you. We offer different sizes of passenger vans, so check with us if you need help choosing the right size.  

Consider the Weather

Weather is highly variable and can lead to a few hiccups if you aren’t prepared. During the summer, rainy, warm weather can make things uncomfortable. You will need ample air conditioning and enough space, so your passengers aren’t sitting right next to each other. 

Additionally, you may want some extra room for coolers to store water and other items to stay comfortable. In this case, you may want to go up a size just to be safe. 

Know Your Destination

Have a clear plan of where you’re going and how you will get there. Finding a rental company that takes into consideration traffic delays is important. We let our rental vehicles be driven anywhere within the continental United States, and we charge by the day rather than by the hour. You don’t have to feel rushed to get your vehicle back to us since you have until the end of the final day. That way, you can prepare ahead and make it back and forth safely. 

Have a Budget In Mind

Rental vans can be expensive if you choose the wrong company. We offer affordable prices and excellent quality, so if you are on a tight budget, you should choose our services. Staying within a certain price range will ensure your trip is one to remember without extensive fees. This will also guide you as you choose a rental period.
