Car Hire Belfast FAQ
Can anyone with a valid licence drive a 9 seater car?
Yes, as long as you have had a driving licence for over 2 years
Can I drive a 12, 15 or 17 seater minibus?
It depends on the country where you plan on renting. You may require a PCV license. It's important that you note the differences between this and the D1 licence. Always read the terms and conditions of each rental very carefully. You must not be receiving payment for driving.
Is is possible to hire and drive a 9 seater car in Europe?
Yes, but this is likely the largest capacity vehicle you can hire on a normal driving licence. Keep in mind that depending on where you are from, you may need an International Driving Permit
When counting seat numbers, is the driver included?
Yes, for instance a 7 seater car hire will almost always have 3 back seats, 2 in the middle and then the two front seats. One front seat is of course used by the driver
Is there a preferred day of the week to get a cheap car hire deal?
No, the best thing you can do is try to arrange your car rental at least 3 months before you need it.
So the prices will increase as the date draws nearer?
Generally yes, however it's ceratinly not impossible that the price could drop. If the car is not been used then it's not making money.
Should I clean my MPV before returning it?
You don't have to go overboard but you should certainly make sure not to leave the car in a mess. A quick clean out will generally do the job.
Will I save some cash if I arrange a people carrier hire for airport pickup?
Probably not but the advantages are well worth considering. There is a much better selection of rental cars available at the airport plus you save on the cost of paying for extra transport from the airport.
