When you’re wanting to dodge the winter, heading to the Sunshine State seems like the only reasonable choice. You can expect sunny skies, warmer temperatures, and plenty of outdoor activities for the entire family. Yet, getting here can be a logistical nightmare, especially when it comes to booking a rental van large enough. Thankfully, Carl’s Van Rentals has a large fleet of passenger vans, so we’re confident you’ll find the right one to fit your needs. Here are some of our tips on how to choose the right one.

How to Choose the Right Passenger Van

Consider Your Luggage Needs

Passenger vans are meant to carry multiple people and their luggage, but not all of them are the same size. This means you’ll need to know how much luggage your crew is bringing along in order to find the right van. You don’t want to be in a situation where you book a rental that’s too small, but you also don’t want to book more van than you need. So, we suggest you read through the luggage and passenger specifications carefully. All of our rentals give you details on the number of people as well as the amount of luggage they carry. 

Think about Gas

You might be surprised to find that our passenger vans get great gas mileage. However, if you’re conscious about what you spend on gas, then find a van that fits your budget. The larger the van, the larger the engine, which means you’ll use more gas. If you do need a larger 15-passenger van but still want to save on gas, try not to drive it around so much. Florida is meant to be outdoors, so consider walking to dinner a couple of nights. Or you might opt to rent some bikes to explore all the bike paths. 

Overall Preferences

Passenger vans are one of our most popular rentals because they can carry so much and are still easy to get around. Still, you should plan to go with a van that meets your overall goals and preferences. You shouldn’t book a van that you’re not comfortable driving, but you should also consider the comfort of your passengers. You’re likely considering the overall budget of your trip as well, so we always recommend finding something within your price range.
