Re: 12 seater vehicle required

I have never seen anything bigger than a 9 seater advertised for hire around here in the 15 years I have visited.

I believe you have to have a special license or permit to drive anything bigger.

Re: Aldi

We tried Aldi last week - very cheap (especially Wine) compared with Intermarche and open until 9.00 pm even on Sundays - However very limited range of fresh meat.

Certainly worth a try
