    Default One Critical Difference

    Welcome aboard the RoadTrip America forum.

    I can't speak to which the best company might be. I usually choose the cheapest car rental company and have never been disappointed in the basic service of any of the major US companies. What is critical to your search is that you have 8 people, and you'll have to be very selective in the make and model of the vehicle you reserve. Most full-sized SUVs (Dodge Durango, Chevy Tahoe, and GMC Envoy) and the larger minivans (Chrysler Town and Country, Dodge Grand Caravan) seat 7 people. Only the Ford Expedition (that I know of) seats 8. The next size up is a full-sized van such as the Chevy Express which seats 15
