Car rental

Hi, we are a group of 4 budget travellers. All of us are 23-24 yr. As part of our road trip, we need a decent size car to actually fit 4 of us and about 5-6luggages. My friend told us we need an SUV. However, most car rental company do not loan big cars(like SUV) to people below the age of 25. If they do, they charge an additional fee. Any advice as to:

1. which rental car company do not charge an extra for big cars to <25yr

2. Any specific car you would like to recommend?

3. Or cheap but established rental car company?

(note: starting point: las Vegas

Ending point: San Francisco

1 week car rental, need GPS)

1. Most of the companies do

2. Depends on the company and the car. We don't know how big your bags are so perhaps an SUV would be ok

3. While age charges are one big issue you need to get insurance which is just as important, you need to shop around on the major company sites such as Hertz, Avis, Budget, Enterprise, Alamo and from sites such as carhire3000.com and make sure you declare you are not a US resident to get bundled rates with insurance and no one way drop off fees

4. Check the deals section for discounts. I see Hertz has a deal on their website that does not charge the under age fee

Good luck
