Master all roads with an SUV

Are you looking for a reliable and practical car at the same time? Halfway between the minivan and the 4x4, opt for the rental of a Sport Utility Vehicle (SUV). Thanks to its robustness, versatility and comfort, you can travel on all types of road surfaces around the world.  The practical interior and the large cargo capacity provided in this type of vehicle will allow you to travel long journeys with complete peace of mind. With its sporty design and solid chassis, the SUV is the ideal choice to deal with rougher roads while enjoying comfortable seating and driving.

SUV rental is suitable for many occasions: 

Driving on roads in poor condition: SUVs have excellent resistance. So you’ll have no trouble driving on roads that are difficult to access or negotiating a high mountain pass to reach your destination.

Go on an excursion with friends or family: take up to 7 passengers on board your SUV to go hiking, enjoy winter sports or the outback, all in a convivial atmosphere!

Make long trips: hiring an SUV ensures a pleasant ride thanks to the excellent performance of this type of vehicle. As the interior is spacious and practical, you will have all the comforts required for your long journeys. 

Number of seats: do you want to travel with the family or in a group? Modular, you can opt for a 7-seater SUV and enjoy a fun and convivial holiday!

Engine power: SUVs are agile and more economical than 4x4s. Available with up to 260 horsepower and usually with 2 wheel drive, they adapt perfectly to roads or wide tracks.

Hire according to the period that suits you: enter the departure and arrival dates in the search bar to find all the deals that correspond to what you are looking for.

Reserve additional equipment: customise your SUV on the car rental site with options such as a ski rack, child seat or GPS device to reserve an SUV that perfectly suits your needs. 

One-way car hire: would you prefer to drop the vehicle off somewhere else than your starting point? Simply select “Different return location” from the search bar. 

Departure and arrival locations: choose the location of the SUV rental agency you want by searching for offers in the city centre, at the airport or near the railway station of your city of departure. 

The benefits of Liligo: use even more filters to find your ideal SUV. Air conditioning, free cancellation, type of fuel, automatic or manual... the choice is up to you.

Frequently asked questions

Where to rent an SUV?

Liligo compares SUV deals for rent in city centres, train stations and airports. Indicate your starting city in the search bar, then select the exact location where you want to rent your SUV.

Can we rent an SUV by month?

Yes, you can rent an SUV for one or more months in some companies that offer rates for long-term rental. To book the vehicle payment may be requested from you all at once. Also check in the rental contract for the number of kilometres allowed.

From what age can you rent an SUV?

SUVs are intermediate or higher category vehicles. You will find SUVs available from 21 years old, or 25 years old. You will find SUVs available from the age of 18 at Sixt, provided you have 2 years on your licence. These criteria vary depending on the rental companies and the country in which you want to make the reservation. Drivers under the age of 26 must pay a “young drivers” fee. 

How many years do you need on your licence to be able to rent an SUV?

To rent an SUV, it is generally necessary to have between 1 and 3 years on a licence. To rent a very prestigious SUV, you may be asked for up to 10 years on a licence (at Avis Prestige, for example). These conditions vary by agency and country.

What documents should be presented to rent an SUV?

The documents requested to rent an SUV are:

  • Your identity card or passport
  • Your driving licence
  • A credit card in your name
  • Proof of address (depending on the agency)
  • A telephone number (depending on the agency)

Rental companies generally accept Mastercard, Visa or American Express credit cards. If you have another type of card, make sure to confirm the means of payment accepted by the company.

Do you have to take out insurance to rent an SUV?

When you rent an SUV in the United States or Europe, “third-party insurance” and “personal injury” coverage are included in the rental contract. The rental company will offer you optional additional protection to better cover you in different situations (repairs on the vehicle, insurance in case of theft, etc.), and to reduce the amount of the excess that is your responsibility in case of accident.

Note: your credit card may include insurance that covers car hire. This is the case for some credit cards such as the VISA Premier card. Do not hesitate to have it confirmed to avoid accumulating insurance.
