Family cars provide extra space in the passenger compartment as well as in the boot and therefore extra legroom. The back seats can be folded down to make extra boot space if
you require room for more than two suitcases.
Considered as full-size rental cars, they are ideal for larger parties and big families, if you need the extra space to ensure everyone’s comfort. They are great for transporting elderly passengers, or smaller groups travelling with extra luggage. Examples of family cars available at Europcar Ireland are Opel Insignia or Skoda Octavia.
Another type of family car is multi-purpose vehicles, or people carriers. These are typically
a large hatchback with seating for six or more. They are bigger and more practical than regular hatchbacks. Typical MPV models on our fleet are Citroen C4 Picasso, Volkswagen Caddy or Renault Scenic.
