For a 60 square meter apartment it should be at least a sprinter to avoid too many trips.

Beyond that there are no further legal age restrictions. However, some require car rental a minimum age for the rental of larger vehicles or require a certain period of driving experience or. driving license possession. The companies themselves decide whether transporters can be rented at the age of 18, 19, 21 or even 25. Depending on the age of the driver, some rental companies may also have young driver fees are incurred, as the following example shows:

rental company young driver fee for vans Amount of the young driver fee
hertz for drivers from 19-22 years old 24,00€ per day
budget for drivers 18-24 years old 11,50€ per day

However, many vans are also available in a minibus version, which is often even available as a 9-seater.
