Looking for 7-seater car to rent/borrow/exchange for 3 weeks (or weekends only)

Hi all

My 2 parents-in-law will be visiting me from 19 July for 3 weeks.

I already have 2 cars, but both cannot accomodate my family (2 adults 2 small children with car seats) and 2 of them.

I need a 7-seater or a Honda FRV (6 seater) type of vehicle.
Of course some people can suggest I rent one from the rental shop, but it would be expensive.

I am looking for a kind hearted soul who has such a vehicle, to lend me/rent me/ exchange cars with me for 1-3 weekends or the whole 3 weeks.
I live near Baar/Affoltern a.A.

We will not be travelling much, perhaps to nearby Swiss holiday locations. (That's another reason why I don't plan to RENT)

Use both cars? Share the visitors out, one parent, one in-law apiece?

Wow. THAT is such an original idea.
Why didn't I think of it?

Driving 2 cars in close proximity, usually raises the risk of collision between the 2.
Plus my wife...(wait, forget it, I don't need to explain).

What I need is a 7 seater. Period.
Hopefully someone is on vacation and can loan me (rent / borrow) his 7 seater for some time.
In return, the car will be cleaned and washed in side out.

Assurance: someone in office told me, he has never met someone so meticulous and careful with autos, like me.

Why not sign up with Mobility and their 'Trial subscription with Cumulus card ' for four months at a total of 40.- subscription fee

http://www.mobility.ch/pages/index.c...ub=619&rub=741

They actually do have such a big car ( 7 seater) and you'd benefit in addition from the insurances they have set up too, which could be a bit of problem if you would get a privately owned car and would have an accident,mustn't even be a big thing that could happen, only a scratch at parking can be sufficient and result in a lenghty troublesome story.
