When you're travelling with kids, you need plenty of space that will keep you and your family comfortable. Of course, not all families need a seven-seater. If you opt for a five-seater, you'll usually save a lot of money when you buy a new vehicle. But it's a whole different story when the holiday season comes around. If you're travelling abroad and taking a long road trip, the comfort of your rental car is welcome. And you have tons of luggage to pack. In these cases, it's best to rent a 7-seater passenger van.

If you're taking a road trip with friends or large groups, it's best to rent a 7- or 9-seater (depending on the number of passengers and luggage).

Maybe you don't have kids and you don't want chaos or friends making a mess in the middle row, you just want comfort and safety. The answer is still the same: Rent a 7-seater. And why? Because 7-seaters usually have higher seating positions that give you a better view of the road. They are super practical to drive and very comfortable. If your wife has packed 14 suitcases, you really don't have a choice, you're going to need the extra space that a 7-seater offers.

The best 7 seater cars for rent

In the 1980s, a car was offered for large families to travel in that could seat 7 people. Renault Espace was one of the first minivans that were also commonly offered for car rental. Nowadays, such vehicles are becoming more and more popular, with new models coming out every year.

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

MPV Car Rental

MPVs (Multi-Purpose Vehicles) or people carriers are compact family cars. If you want to rent a 7-seat car that offers five doors, a high roof, two three rows of seating, H-point seating, and easy access for passengers and cargo, an MPV is for you.

Ford C Max

If you want to drive comfortably, there's Ford's C Max. Ford's 7-seater offers a super practical interior and a fun driving experience. Great driving performance and decent running costs make the Ford one of our most popular 7-seaters for hire.

Citroen C4 SpaceTourer 7-seater

Citroen's C4 Spacetourer 7-seater has eye-catching styling (as you'd expect from the French), it's comfortable and has a spacious interior. The large windows make it feel particularly spacious. If you can, choose a diesel model because of the low running costs.

SUV Car Rental

Sport Utility Vehicles are not only ideal for large groups and growing families, but also for anyone looking for a type of station wagon with off-road features like all-wheel drive and ruggedness.

Hyundai Santa Fe

If you want to rent a car that needs to fit three child seats, consider renting the Santa Fe 7-seater. It is the top choice for families as it offers plenty of space for passengers, has a generous standard specification and is indeed comfortable and relaxing to drive.

Audi Q7 7 seater

Renting a family car doesn't have to be dull, and that's why Audi designed this 7-seater. The third row of seats is just for kids; it's comfortable and well built. It may be too expensive to buy, but if you're thinking of renting a car, we recommend the Audi Q7.

Volvo xc90

There are people who love Volvo, and there are people who are wrong. Well, at least that's what some say. This car is one of the best options you can choose from, a great looking car and a safe and comfortable rental car. It has enough space for all the passengers and for their luggage.

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

Land Rover Discovery

This is one of the oldest brands and is known for its ruggedness. It probably won't win you over with the luxurious interior, but it will be a reliable friend you need on your road trip. It has great fuel economy if you rent a diesel engine, and it comes with plenty of cargo space. You can take all the clothes you need and more on vacation, and the Land Rover allows you to pack even more.

Don't worry, it'll fit seven people and all the luggage. It may not have the most powerful engine, but it has the best off-road capabilities. If you are looking for more information about car classes we have created a definitive guide to rental car sizes
