Comparing Rental Deals - 7 or 8 Seater Vehicles

If your car hire need runs to 6 seaters; 7 seaters or 8 seater people movers, just go to our Gold Coast Car Rental Companies links page and select the company that you wish to investigate and our hyperlink will take you directly to the selected website.

You will find that almost exclusively, the Multi- Seater rental choices are limited to 8 seater vehicles such as Toyota Tarago; Hyundai iMax or KIA Carnival – this is to widen the rental opportunities for each vehicle because 6 or 7 people can fit in an 8 seater, but 8 can’t fit in a 6 or 7 seater.

Again we stress the importance of intensely inspecting and querying the actual contractual rental terms and conditions of rental of any company that you consider renting a vehicle from. Rental terms and conditions are nowhere near a "standard" format and there are vast gulfs of difference between one company and another.

We have summarised a lot of these differences on our links page mentioned in the first paragraph above.

What we found about the pricing of 8 seater people movers (all companies have them, except one who only has 7 seaters):

For the first time, we have been relegated to 2nd place, our lowest price at $415.50 with a $375 insurance excess, is $5.50 more than the category price leader. Also for the 1st time, we have had to include 4th lowest price in the "vehicle only" rental section in order to show our ranking, but in every category, we clearly win the best value.

In the first two categories, the cheapest price is from a company that does not provide any rental and insurance terms and conditions information whatsoever - they do not even provide you with any summarised information, meaning that you are "flying blind" if you choose to deal with them, unless you get the full contract before you are committed.

It is possible (but not probable) that their terms and conditions are reasonable, best to find out before, rather than after.

Although we did not provide the cheapest quote in any category, when you look at what you pay and what you get, Family Car Rentals clearly demonstrate our value superiority in all three package categories.
