- What hire care for 4 blokes and 4 bike bags?
Off to the Alps in the summer for a long weekend. 4 of us are flying out with bikes and will be picking up a hire car from Geneva airport.
I’m thinking that 2 x Ford Focus estates at £160 each would be the way to go. A ford Galaxy would be £560.
Can you get 4 in a Ford Mondeo estate?
Any ideas?Posted 5 years agoStu_NSubscriber
If the hire car is going to just sit there for the weekend a transfer would probably work out cheaper (though depends where – Geneva to Morzine isnt far, obviously futher will cost more.
Not sure you’d get 4+4 bags in a Galaxy, they are big but 4 bike bags are an awkward shape. And you may get anything of that class – some frenchie equivalent most likely which might not be as bigPosted 5 years agoFuzzyWuzzySubscriber
It was a struggle getting 2 carry-on bags, 2 suitcases and 2 bike bags inside a Galaxy taxi last time I went to the airport (just 3 of us inside inc. the driver). 4 blokes and 4 bike bags only (no other luggage) would probably squeeze in but your 2 Focus option sounds better (although the transfer idea is even better IMO).Posted 5 years agoblandMember
Hora, £70-80 is expensive! Have a shop around and play them off against each other. £40 should do it.
Try Alp Transfer, Ski Transfer and drop a line to some of the organised holiday places, they may well have space in a van going at the same time
Actually that depends upon where you are going, kind of presumed that it would be the PDS.
4 may go in a Mondeo estate, the bikes will be dismantled, take them out of the bags and stuff in, they take up a lot less space with peggles offPosted 5 years ago
