We are planning a trip to England/Wales this summer. We like to get away from crowded areas so we plan to rent a car rather than taking buses or trains. We are flying in to Manchester England and then plan to go to Wales. Some questions:
1. We have heard that we are likely to get a "mini" car. Will this be large enough for two adults plus several pieces of luggage?
2. Is there any problem/issues in renting a car in England and then driving it to Wales?
3. In the past when renting a car in the US we were surprised to learn that some rental companies charge extra for both of us to be able to drive. Other companies do not charge extra as long as it is your spouse. Is this the same in England?
