Whether it’s just you and your spouse or you’re bringing the whole family along – different vehicles will provide different benefits.

  • Mini-Van: For larger groups, mini-vans are great options since they provide ample seating and plenty of storage space. Popular models include the Dodge Grand Caravan and the Chrysler Town and Country.

  • 12 – 15 Passenger Van: Finally, if you’re traveling with a VERY large group, these special-use vans are perfect for hauling everyone at once.
