Hiring an 8 Seater People Mover

One of the most popular rental vehicles, People Movers are also the fastest movers when it comes to bookings at peak times. If you’re looking to hire an 8 seater vehicle at Christmas, Easter or even during school holidays there is a simple rule to follow – book early.

By booking early not only are you more certain of availability on People Mover rental vehicles, you will also receive a cheaper rate.

The general rule is the closer a booking is made to a pickup date the higher rate. This is particularly evident for more specialised rental vehicles such as 8 seater People Mover vehicles and exaggerated further at peak holiday periods.

As many of DriveNow's partners do not require a deposit or credit card details there is no risk should your plans change and you need to cancel your booking. Although it is worth remembering that if you change your dates you may incur a higher daily rate depending upon the rate on the day when you make the change.

Christmas is a standout and the busiest rental period. By mid-November it’s often too late to hire a People Mover or any form of 8 Seater for Christmas in locations such as popular airports and major cities. Any remaining vehicles attract a premium rental rate due to limited supply.
