Post your Car Hire Pictures here...

We need your help Dibbers

I have noticed a lot of threads lately that are asking what size of car do we need, what make of car have you hired etc etc.

So could I ask Dibbers that are going on holiday to take pictures of their hire cars.
Something along the lines of this:-

Place you picked the car up from:-
Catergory of car hired:-
Make of car you got:-
Hire car company used:-

Picture 1 Front of the car

Picture 2 inside of the car

Picture 3 boot/trunk of the car

Also it would be good if you could take a photo with all the luggage packed, like a before and after.
I know I am asking alot, but it would help members in choosing the right car for their trip.

Thank you.

Ok, heres our 7 seater SUV.

There was only 4 of us so loads of room when we went out in the day, however with all 3 large cases and large holdall, hand luggage and a buggy it was just right for getting back to the airport.

Picked up from-Airport(not sure which one )
rented from- Dollar.
Make- not sure .

When - Oct 06
Car booked - 7 seater mini van
From - Budget, through USrentacar
Collected from MCO
Car we got - Ford Freestar 4.2l

Fitted 6 of us more than comfortably, even when loaded with luggage on the return trip. Very comfy leather seats. We also pre-booked and paid for a child seat, at $5 a day - it was spotless, excellent working order, wrapped in some sort of cling film and had obviously been well maintained and cleaned, in fact, it looked brand new - adding this, as I have seen a few threads asking about whether you should hire car seats, or take your own - this was great There were a selection of several sizes, from ones that looked suitable for tinies, through to boosters for the older kids - you inspected and chose your own, all were immaculate - but, you did have to fit it yourself, though it came with clear instructions

so

Side view of car



Front Interior



Middle seats, with child seat, and passenger seat folded down



Rear 3 seats



Boot - whoops - I mean TRUNK - empty




and full ( with 4 large, 1 small cases, plus a couple of pieces of hand luggage)



Hope these are OK

Love Suexx
