We will be renting a car to drive (meander) from London to Edinburgh over the course of about two weeks. Since we will be parking and walking a fair amount sightseeing, shopping, etc., we'd like a car with a covered luggage area. We'll carry our main valuables (cameras, wallets, etc) but want to leave our suitcases in the car without worrying too much.
Since we will be driving quite a bit, fuel efficiency is pretty important but one of us is over six feet tall so a little extra legroom would be nice but not absolutely necessary. And we know we'll need something small enough to navigate tiny rural roads.
Hertz offers the VW Polo and claims 80mpg (which seems amazing even for a non-American car) but when I Googled it, it didn't look like the luggage area is concealed. The Vauxhall Corsa and Astra photos showed some with covers and some without.
Any suggestions for a make and model? Hertz did have an option to request a specific vehicle rather than a class. Thanks!
