Each group must provide one vehicle for every 5 youth and 2 adults. The vehicle must be in good operating condition, and have working seat belts for all seven people. It must also have room to transport tools, ladders, worksite supplies, water cooler, and ice chest. With this in mind, please plan to bring only 15-Passenger vans or Suburban-sized SUVs.  See www.ctcym.org under the section For Group Leaders for suggested van rental information.
 
Drivers must be minimum 25 years of age. If your local church insurance allows younger drivers, contact the CTCYM office promptly to discuss if an exception can be made. Exceptions will be largely dependent on whether your church is renting a van or not.
 

Don’t forget:

  • Insurance/registration for each vehicle
  • Extra set of keys
  • Tarps or plastic to cover seats and floors
 
It is recommended your group reserve their van(s) 4-6 months in advance of their planned trip.  Each vehicle must be insured for liability and collision with proof of insurance in the vehicle at all times. CTCYM assumes no liability for damage or accidents to vehicles while on the trip. Be sure to check with your church on any additional requirements they may have i.e. required amounts, ages of drivers, etc. 
 
Group Leaders are encouraged to do a comparison of prices, services and perks provided by a van rental company before making a final decision on which company to employ. 
 
 
Group Leaders may secure their vans from whomever they wish. While we do not endorse any particular rental company, please feel free to call CTCYM office if you need suggestions or assistance.
