3 Reasons to Choose a Full-Size SUV Rental

You’ve been considering all your car rental options, and you keep wondering whether that full-size SUV rental is a good fit for your family. “Does it have enough space for all of us to ride comfortably and to store our luggage?” “Will it make our road trip simpler?” “Do we need or want the extra luxury?” Well, let our team at Empire Rent A Car answer all of those questions with a resounding “Yes!”—and here’s why.

Budget-Friendly SUV Rentals

When you’re in a new city and you need to get around, renting an SUV instead of a car can be very appealing. SUV’s offer more seating, more power, and an extra hint of luxury that you don’t get in a basic rental car. However, many people opt for the car because the cost of renting an SUV is often higher. At Empire Rent A Car, we offer midsize SUVs at competitive rates so that you can travel in style and comfort without breaking the bank.
