Subject: Re: Rental Car size
Being the first time to post to this message board I feel sad to bring up a bad note. . But. . When looking at using a mini van of some sort keep this in mind. If your luggage can be viewed through the windows of your car then it is an invitation. Yes this is a voice of experience. Last year my husband and I were in Slovakia with a group of international Balloon Pilots on a Hot Air Balloon tour of villages. Every bit of our luggage was stolen from the van we had. We had to have a van for the power to pull the trailer with the balloon in it. Not only were we responsible for the damage to the vehicle, but also to all the balloon equipment that was in the van and thus stolen. The balloon club rented the van for us because tourist are not allowed to rent this type of van (mercedes) due to it's high theft value. If we had only known. . . . .

On a different post I will introduce myself and have cheerier news to share. Mary
