Frequently Asked Questions

We specialise in European hires and offer very competitive rates too. Please feel free to contact us for more information and rates via our Contact Us page.
We do not offer a Saturday only hire, the weekend rate we require applies for all Saturday collections. The weekend rate is from Saturday morning through to 08:30am Monday morning. In some instances it may be possible to collect before we close on Friday if the vehicle is available for the hire.
You are able to add additional drivers onto the hire providing they meet requirements. There is a charge of £6.50 per day for each additional driver and they must be present on collection of the vehicle to sign the relevant individual driver forms. ID required remains the same too for additional drivers.

There are insurance and licence related restrictions when hiring a vehicle. The main conditions are:

  • Drivers must be older than 22 years of age and must have held a full driving licence for a minimum of 2 years
  • Drivers must be over the age of 25 to drive a Minibus, 9 Seater of 7.5t Truck
  • Anyone under 25 is liable for a £25/Day young driver fee and cannot reduce their excess.
  • Drivers with more than 3 points on their licence may need clearance from our insurance and therefoer should declare them at the time of booking
  • Drivers wishing to hire a 17 seat Minibus must hold the D1 category on their licence
  • Drivers wishing to hire a 7.5t Truck must hold the C1 category and in the case of business, use a valid Operators licence

Under certain circumstances you may be able to drive a 14 seat Minibus without the category D1 on your licence, but please contact us for more information regarding this. Drivers aged between 21 & 24 will be subject to an additional daily charge.

Should the vehicle be involved in any accidents, the insurance excess would be payable at £1,150. You can reduce the risk to £250 by paying a collision damage waiver (CDW). The daily rate for the CDW is £25.
The hire rate does include 250 free miles a day up to a maximum of 1000 miles per week. If in any circumstance the free miles limit is exceeded, mileage will be charged at a rate of 12p plus VAT per mile.

A security deposit is required on collection of your vehicle. The following deposits apply:

  • Cars, Combo, SWB & LWB £200
  • XLWB, Lutons & Minibus £200
  • 7.5t Trucks & Chillers £250

When collecting the vehicle you will be required to bring your driving license and your NI number or a DVLA licence share code. We also require a recent proof of address such as a tax bill or bank statement from the person hiring the vehicle. If you have the old style paper licence we will also require photographic ID, for example, a passport.
