Where to rent 9 person+ vehicle?

Hi

I was wondering where I could rent 9 person vehicles (vans probably).

Ive called most of the rental companies, but they seem to be discontinuing them for 2006.

I was just in the states this past week and they are so popular (11 person vans). I see them everywhere

Help is appreciated,
Thanks

I rented a 15 person at budget last year around this time. I think it was from Budget Vans and Trucks, not the usual Budget car rentals.

Can you drive those things with a regular license?

Anything that's a gas guzzler ....... you'll see in the US. I went to Denver, Colordao, and all the stores are SUPER BIG. Like SUPER WALMART and SUPER Target.............and all the vehicles were SUVs and pick ups.

I thought you could drive them with a regular licence, but to transport more then 9 people you need a special licence.

This is BC.

I looked into it once when I was coaching HS basketball.

Where does it say that? To drive a bus with less than 24 people you need a class F license.

Since you need a special licence to drive a 24 passanger max. vehicle, I assume you don't need a special licence to drive a "smaller" size vehicle.

I described the bus badly. It should be a G licence cannot drive a bus which can carry 24 passenger max.

That site is pretty vague. It's hard to define whether a 15-passenger vehicle is a van or a bus.

We actually have 7-8 people (so we wont have so many people to the point where we need a special license), but we've got some equipment we need to store as well, so we need a little bit of room to work with.

With a G licence you can drive any car, van or small truck as long as it (and whatever you're towing which can be up to 4,600kg) does not total more than 11,000kg. A 15 passenger van would be classified as a van. If you can drive a cube van with a G licence, I don't see why you wouldn't be able to drive a passenger van. I'm sure the only reason for the F licence is because you would be driving the general public as it would be a small bus or an ambulance.
