Car Hire and Luggage - Four Adults

We are four adults traveling for two weeks - mostly by car. We have rented a Volvo V70 (or similar - full size class). The "image" on the website shows a luggage rack. Are there luggage racks on hire cars? Would this car be big enough for us and luggage?

We are thinking about bringing a waterproof car top cargo bag as we are worried about space for luggage.

Perhaps roof racks are offered as an additional extra ? Rental cars do not normally come with roof racks. Contact the provider for more info.

Roof racks unlikely, but these cars have rails for mounting such things. Contact the hirer.

Check first, I am just assuming that was what you saw in the picture and of course there is no guarantee that you get that exact model - that’s what the ‘or similar’ means.
