My wife and I plan to travel with several pieces of luggage enroute to our cruise terminal. I anticipate 4 large suitcases... 2 carry-on size... 2 large handbags... plu s my CPAP shoulder bag. What is the best way to reserve a vehicle large enough to handle my wife & I and luggage?

    It really depends on the car and how many passengers you have. You only have two so if not all of the luggage fits in the trunk, you could put the smaller bags on a seat.

    I drive a Prius V that has ample room behind the rear seats. I once took four riders to the airport and they had five pieces of luggage that we placed ibehind the rear seats.

    The best idea is to call the driver as soon as you get your ride. Explain your situation and see if the driver can fit the luggage. If that driver can't, then cancel and get another ride. There are plenty of drivers that would like a drive to the port.

    Cancel within five minutes and you won't be charged.

    If in doubt, order a larger vehicle, like a Uber XL.  If you order a Uber X and get a Toyota Prius, there's no guarantee you'll fit everything in the car.

    If you have 4 suitcases and 2 carry on size cases, Uber XL is definitely your best bet.   Keep in mind that the baggage you bring must generally fit in the trunk of my car, and I refuse to allow passengers to stuff empty seats with luggage.  (Handbags and a CPAP are fine)  You have no idea how much damage passengers have done to my vehicle trying to jam oversized luggage in the cabin.  I won't take that chance anymore. 

    An Uber X vehicle is guaranteed to fit 4 PASSENGERS, with the limiting factor being available seatbelts, but there are no requirements guaranteeing baggage space.
