If you are looking for a 10 passenger van rental, you have three options. There are a few factors involved in choosing the right option. You can rent a 12 passenger van, you can rent two smaller passenger vans, or you can rent a mini bus. The larger passenger van rental vs the two smaller van rentals is one you should decide on early. The first factor deals with safety. The second is about organization.
Anytime you set out on an adventure you want to be safe. This holds true when you are renting a 10 passenger van, a larger passenger van, or a smaller van like a 7 passenger van rental. Smaller vans are easier to handle and generally safer. They will perform better in all conditions. They also have better rollover ratings than their larger counterparts. You should check for the specific make and model you are going to rent to find out the specific crash ratings
The larger passenger van seems ideal because your group can be together and the two smaller van option requires you to have two drivers. Sometimes groups want to stay together when they are traveling. When we were in China we had a small group and always stayed together when we were traveling from one city to the other, but on some of the day outings we would split up into small groups. We didn’t need vehicles for moving around the cities and towns. We just used taxis and the subway system in major cities and we walked in smaller towns.
Two or more vehicles can provide you with the ability to have different groups go to different locations. This can be ideal because not everyone wants to go to the same place everyday.
A mini bus rental, in my opinion, is the best option for groups larger than 8. It will provide you with safe travel, allow you to stay together, and they are affordable.
Which every way you choose to move your group of 10 passengers, please be safe.
