I need a 12 to 15 seaters van for the Thanksgiving weekend. I have trouble locating places that have this type of vehicles. Anyone with information please chime in.

I am at 90620 zip code. I can pick the van near DisneyLand or Knotts Berry Farm.

Thank you for reading

At this point though you're gonna either pay a ton for one or have a damn hard time finding an available one... There usually are very limited stock of these.

It's usually cheaper to rent two vehicles than it is one of these bad boys.

If you simply have to have one of them I'd suggest you call the companies up and see if/where they have any availability.

If you have Simple Choice Plan (PostPaid+CreditChecked type), you Data/SMS(TEXT) will cause you nothing in most major cities in EU. Voice/call roaming is not free, not too much but need to watch out for ... However, if you have WiFi Calling capable phones (e.g. SamPhone S4 and later, iPhone 5s and later) from T-mobile and turn the feature on, then you get to call the whole north America (USA/CAN/MEX) for free.

I have the T-Mobile simple choice plan. and I am not leaving the US, so I don't need the wifi calling feature as I have unlimited talk and txt with simple choice plan right?

That post from Ling Yang sounds like post spam.

If you rent a 15 passenger van a CDL maybe required, though this depends on laws in each state. It maybe cheaper and easier to rent two 7 passenger minivans since many rental companies don't often have 12-15 passenger vans available. If they did, then it would have to be booked far in advance.

Costco offers 12% discount on 4 vendors. Budgets allows 400 miles and charges $0.43/mile extra. Enterprise charges weekly rate of $750. The other 2, Alamos and nationals if I remember correctly ,don't have the vehicles I need.
It's going to be expensive :-)

LivninSC recommended renting 2 vehicles. This would definitely save you some money and may accommodate your group more comfortably -- especially if people have different interests or schedules. You are not going to get a deal on a 12 - 14. You would be lucky, at this point, to find a deal on a 7 passenger van this close to the holiday.
