Place - Orlando international airport (Easter 2008)
Company - Dollar via Car Hire 3000
Category - 8 seater van but free upgrade to 12 seater van
Make & Model - Ford E350

Impressions of the van ... well I didn't take many pics it was a bit of a beast and we called her Bessie. OK for a really large group with lots of luggage even space under the bench style seats plenty of drink holders and the aircon was good even far at the back LOL you had to shout to the kids in row 4 ! The doors at the side allowed those in row 3 and 4 to get in without clambering over row 2 but the step up was a bit of a hike. Oh and the good thing was rear parking sensors! I was a little indifferent about Bessie she suited our needs and the other members of the 'A' Team concluded that next time we'd prefer two smaller cars.

This is a picture of our more recent hire car from when we were in Miami/keys and orlando

This has been a car that i have always wanted to hire and it was fantastic.

Sorry no pictures of the trunk, but i was suprised at how large it actually was. We had a large roller holdall. (we did see some where people had suitcases on the back seats)!

Recommended for couples due to space in the boot!

Not bieng a petrol head I never really thought about picturing the car !

Chevy Equinox

A feature with this car is the sliding back seat.
With the seat forward you have less legroom but more boot "trunk" space and when you have no luggage you can slide the seat back for more leg room.

The photos below illustrate this. My son is 6 foot and is stitting in the back.

Forward Position







Pushed back Position





Excellent car for getting around in.

We had 2 large cases, 2 extra lagre holdalls and two smaller holdalls and 4 adults. Got the usual story when picking up that we would not all fit in. But we did with ease and had plenty of room for our normal use during our two weeks.
