How to Rent a 15 Passenger Van

Save

A 15-passenger van comes in handy when traveling with a large group--whether you have a big family or are traveling with a sports team to a game. It offers room, comfort and safety. You can also get TVs and DVDs to make the trip go faster.

  • Approach car rental companies to see if they keep 15-passenger vans in their fleet. There are also van rental companies such as Bandago that specialize in this type of rental.

  • Be at least 25 years old to rent vehicles from the majority of car rental companies, including Alamo and Enterprise. Show a valid driver's license. Bandago also requires proof of current auto liability insurance.

  • Check the geographic area and mileage restrictions. Some rental companies charge you the same no matter how many miles and how far you drive a 15-passenger van. Others have stricter rules and will charge you if you go over the set mileage.

  • Know that some 15-passenger vans do not meet federal bus safety standards, so they may not be able to be used to transport young children on school-related events.

  • Rent a van with technological updates to keep passengers entertained on long trips. Many 15-passenger bans come equipped with a LCD video screen, video game system, DVD player and iPod support.

  • Learn the rental company's policies. Alamo, for example, doesn't allow a van rented in the United States to be driven in Canada. In addition, it cannot be used to transport children in the 12th grade or younger for school-related events unless the children are related to the renter.

  • Consider spending more to rent a GPS system or Wi-Fi Internet from the rental company, if desired.

  • Look for online coupons on the rental companies' websites. Image Van Rentals, for instance, offers discounts on 12- and 15-passenger vans.
