MPV Hire

Picking the right hire MPV for your needs is a vital part of the hiring process, which is why the Rent Direct team is available every step of the way.

An MPV (Multi-Purpose Vehicle) is ideal if you need extra space for people or luggage. Unlike a standard-sized car, MPVs can carry extra luggage and extra people. Also referred to as ‘people carriers’, many MPVs seat seven to nine people, making them ideal for families or groups of friends. 

Whether you’re heading off on a holiday adventure, require a bigger vehicle for an airport run, or need to transport staff for business purposes, we can help. MPVs boast a combination of practicality and comfort, making it an ideal hire vehicle choice for many occasions. 

At Rent Direct, we also specialise in Car Hire and Van Hire, serving customers in East Anglia and beyond. Our great quality, competitively priced hire vehicles come equipped with everything needed to make your journey as comfortable as possible, including air-con, sat nav and Bluetooth.

When you hire an MPV from Rent Direct, you’ll also benefit from fully comprehensive insurance and breakdown cover as standard, meaning you can travel with complete peace of mind.

Our MPV Fleet 

The Rent Direct online booking system allows you to search through a choice of makes and models from leading manufacturers, such as Ford, Kia and Volkswagen. Each model in our line-up is under two years of age, so you can drive with the confidence that your Rent Direct MPV is not only new, but reliable too.

If you have a lot of luggage to carry, an MPV is the perfect choice of vehicle. Our range of larger MPVs prove handy if you have mobility issues or are carrying passengers with physical disabilities. The excess space in the boot is ideal for big pieces of equipment, such as wheelchairs or double prams. We’ll be only too happy to help you select the right type of MPV for your travel requirements.
