Van hire with driver in Paris - for road trip in Europe

Hi all

Please suggest some agencies which can provide rental services with driver for a 7-8 seater van.

Also, if you have any idea about the cost, post here too..

Like is it a daily fixed charge basis or km basis or combination of both..

Don't forget that a 7-8 seater people carrier (vans don't carry people, just goods, here) won't have much, if any, room for luggage.

Can't we keep the luggage at the top or at the back?

Can you not drive yourselves? You will pay a lot for having a driver. Drivers are subject to strict regulations which can be checked by police. How long is this trip & where do you want to go?

Actually I'm the only driver in my group. So don't want to take chance. And my plan is to cover Paris (starting point), Berlin, Prague, Switzerland, Venice, Florence and Rome (ending point). I know the plan seems little scattered but these are places I want to cover as I am accompanying with my parents and uncles, aunts who will not be visiting Europe more than once.

I was just trying to understand how costly it will be..

It will be very costly. Use www.viamichelin.com to get an idea of how many kilometres you will have to travel, then multiply that by maybe €5 to get a ballpark idea of cost.

How long have you budgeted for a trip that takes you to 7 different cities (Switzerland is a country, which city do you have in mind) which are all spread out.

This will probably run into multiple thousands of EUROS as you also need to pay for the meals as well as private accommodations for the driver.
