Why You Need a Van Rental for Your Next Family Vacation Road Trip

Home / Blog / Why You Need a Van Rental for Your Next Family Vacation Road Trip

After days of planning and deliberation, you’ve got your ready family road trip all planned out. You know where you’ll stay, what stops you want to hit along the way, and even picked a few unique restaurants you can’t miss, but there’s one thing left to pick — your means of transportation. Sure, you could take the family car, but sitting in a car for a short drive to work or school is a lot different from an extended road trip. You want to reach your destination with all of your passengers feeling comfortable and relaxed, but spending hours or days in a luggage-filled sedan can make that difficult. 

Instead, opt for a rental van. The rental van you choose for your family vacation can make or break your trip, and a modern Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van can truly make your experience one to remember. You don’t have to worry about adding miles to your regular-use vehicle, and you get the assurance that your rental van has been recently inspected and certified family road trip ready

Travel in Comfort With a Spacious, Modern Interior

No more fighting over armrests or leg room! It’s time to level up your family road trip game with a Mercedes-Benz Sprinter van rental that takes comfort to the next level. When your crew is in a vehicle for hours on end, comfortable cabin features can make a huge difference in your experience. Your trip will be far more comfortable when you rent a van with extra legroom and space to recline, along with ample room for all of your luggage.

An average family car seats around five people and a larger SUV may seat around seven. This may be all you need, but what do you do if you’re traveling with a larger group? Splitting up your crew into multiple vehicles makes for miscommunications, frustrations, and difficult pit-stop coordination. With seating for up to 15, a large Mercedes Sprinter van can fit your entire group in one vehicle. It’s the perfect opportunity to create a fun group atmosphere and enjoy on-the-road bonding time — plus you’ll save on gas usage with only one vehicle to care for. 

Heading out on a road trip with a large group of family members can make anyone feel a little claustrophobic, but it doesn’t have to be that way with a Sprinter van. Pack a large cooler with drinks and snacks in reach for everyone to enjoy, turn on the A/C, and load up a movie on the in-cabin TV screens — we’re certain this will be your best road trip yet. The more, the merrier!

Enjoy No Pre-Trip Vehicle Preparation 

From packing to making reservations, there’s a lot to plan and organize before you hit the road on a family road trip. If you’re taking the family car as your transportation, you’ll have to add significant vehicle preparation and maintenance to your already long to-do list. Before setting off on a long trip, it’s crucial to ensure that your car is in perfect, safe driving condition to avoid any dangerous, expensive, or time-consuming issues along the way. If your family car is an older model, you’ll also have to worry about its engine’s ability to handle long hours on the road as opposed to normal everyday use. 

You could take your car into the shop and pay for a complete tune-up before making sure that it’s fully cleaned for your trip, or you could pick up a Sprinter van already in perfect condition. When you opt for a family van rental from Legends Car & Van Rentals, you can say goodbye to all of your pre-family road trip car maintenance and expenses. We thoroughly clean and sanitize every inch of our vans between rentals, ensuring that they’re perfectly clean for your family to enjoy. Our vehicles also frequently undergo rigorous safety and reliability inspections, so we ensure that they’re always in exceptional driving condition. 

Ready to embark on the family road trip of a lifetime? With our unlimited miles package, you’ll never have to worry about limiting how far you go or how many attractions to stop at. Drive away with confidence, knowing that your Sprinter van is in perfect condition — no matter where you take it. 

Avoid Wear & Tear on Your Vehicle

Long road trips can be tough on your family car, and adding hundreds of miles to your vehicle can depreciate its value and decrease the time before you’ll require an oil change, engine check, or other maintenance. With a Sprinter van rental, your family vehicle will enjoy a much-deserved vacation, waiting in great condition in your driveway or garage for your return. Aside from their incredible convenience, rental vans save your personal car from the inevitable wear & tear of a family road trip. 

Avoid repair bills and added miles to your vehicle when you travel in a Sprinter van rental! With Legends Car & Van Rentals, there’s no need to worry about the hassle of rental pick-ups and drop-offs. You’ll enjoy the convenience of pick-up or delivery, and drop-off wherever you need it — even across state lines. When we say flexible and convenient, we mean it.

Vacations are all about fun, and embarking on a road trip with your family is the perfect opportunity to enjoy hours of entertainment — even for the driver.
