2 passengers vs. 4 passengers
What is the difference between the 2-passenger and 4-passenger models?
Our cars are all Toyota Siennas, but those for 4 passengers have a type of camper kit that allows the rear seats (3rd row seats) to be open, so two people can sit there, in addition to the two people up front.
The vans for 4 passengers come with the basic kit (like all our vans do) but they also include a tent (on the ground) for the 2 extra passengers who do not fit in the van to sleep, as well as a roof box for have enough storage for everyone.
Another small difference is that the 4 passenger vans also come with a rectangular table and folding benches for 4, while the 2 passenger model comes with a small square table and two folding camping chairs, “lounging” style.
Can we be two adults plus a small child in the 4 passenger car?
Yes. Note that only the rear bench (3rd row seat) is available – and not the middle benches. To see what we mean, take a look at these photos:
If you are traveling with children, you will need to bring your child seat which will need to be removed at night before going to sleep in order to have room for your feet. We advise you to think of a Mifold Booster Seat style that can be folded up and transported easily.
Why do I need to take out insurance if I already have car rental insurance with my credit card or with my own car in Quebec?
Most insurances do not cover our vehicles as they are not “regular” rental vehicles, they are “modified” vehicles – due to the camper kit that has been added to the rear.
What is the minimum driving age?
21 years & more
Vans and interior
What models of vans do you have? Why do you just have Sienna?
All our vans are Toyota Sienna only. The oldest is a 2005, the newest is a 2018.
We like them Sienna because they are reliable and robust, and it’s much easier to maintain a fleet of cars that are all the same. 🙂
Do you have bluetooth? Reversing camera? AUX sockets?
AUX sockets yes, in all our vans. So you can play music from your phone. PS: be sure to bring your iPhone adapters as needed.
Bluetooth is only available in one of our vans.
Backup camera is available in 4 passenger vans only.
Can I choose to reserve a newer model or with some of these features?
You can only choose between the 2 or 4 passenger option.
Note that between two travelers we always bring the vans for check ups and depending on mechanical needs and availability the years of the vans may vary.
What is the average fuel consumption of your vehicles?
Average fuel consumption is 10.3 liters / 100 km. This could vary depending on whether you are in the 4 passenger van and that you also have the roofbox installed (and filled with things), or even if you just have the paddleboards.
Are there electrical outlets in the van?
No. You only have USB plugs to charge your phones on the go. If you absolutely must stay plugged in, you are advised to rent a portable battery (additional charge – on request) or bring your own extra travel battery pack.
Is bedding included?
No. The bedding kit is on request and at an additional cost.
This kit includes: 1 set of sheets complete with 2 pillows, 1 warm duvet and 1 light yoga-style blanket. If you live in Montreal, we recommend that you bring your own sheets and duvets
Can I sit inside the van if it is raining? Is the bed foldable?
The 4-person model has a semi-foldable bed in the sense that you can sit on the back benches (3rd row seats) and use a portion of the bed as a small table.
If you are traveling in the 2 person vans, there are just the front seats where you can sit.
Do you make rentals of less than 5 days?
Usually not (especially during the high seasons between July and September) but we invite you to call us directly for this type of request at 514-531-7666 and we may be able to arrange something for you last minute.
Do you offer unlimited mileage?
No, not for the moment. Our 250 KM per day package is perfect for most needs and one of the most generous in the industry (and probably THE most generous).
Do you do specials if I’m away for a long time?
Yes! Please contact us using our rental request form
I am tall, like 1m93. Would it still be possible for me to rent your vans?
Our beds are approximately 50 x 70 to 73 inches and our tall guests say they slept well, so you won’t be the first tall customer we have 🙂
In the 2-person models, you can still put your feet a little bit on the kitchen counter. Inside the 4-person models you have the 3rd row seat at your feet, so that’s something to keep in mind.
I come from outside the country. Do you have travel policy and COVID resource pages?
Please consult cette page
Do you have any videos of the vans?
We recorded this playlist in 2019. It’s in French, but visually it can give you a good idea of the kind of experience.
Note that a few small details have changed, but the essence of the experience remains the same.
On the road
Do you have roadside assistance?
Road insurance costs are included in the price. We don’t have a single exclusive company that we do business with.
If you need roadside assistance the first point of contact is us, and then we’ll guide you through the next steps.
Can I just park and camp anywhere?
According to Educaloi’s website, it is okay to park on public lands, provided that you follow some rules (the following is a quote directly from their website):
- When camping on public lands, you must use temporary and mobile equipment, and take it with you when you leave. Of course, you must also clean up the site and take away your garbage!
- However: Some municipalities have their own rules, like the regional county municipalities (RCM) of Saguenay-Lac-Saint-Jean, Portneuf, Sept-Rivières and Matawinie. Find out which rules apply before camping on public lands in their territory.
Personally we find it more comfortable to camp in parks like Sepaq or Parks Canada, and this is what we recommend our clients. We think it’s a great value not only because you get a good spot, but also access to trails, beaches, and services like toilets, showers, etc.
There’s also two apps: Parks4night and iOverlander that some of our clients love to use to plan their trips better.
