I'm going to be traveling in Europe this summer with my road bike in a Trico case. My question is what size rental car will I need? Just me and the wife and a couple of medium suitcases, plus the Trico case, will be in the car. Since it costs more to upsize the car rental, I was hoping some experienced travelers here might offer advice. The Euro car rental places do not seem to want to guarantee the availability of a specific vehicle model, only a group which can include two or three different models.
I'm pretty sure we don't want to risk renting the smallest car available, but anyway advice on this would be appreciated. Which car will fit?
