Car Hire & Van Hire Cambridge

Our city centre location is easy to access, making car hire and van hire in Cambridge hassle free. We even provide free undercover bicycle parking while you are out in your rental vehicle.

Whatever journey you have planned, we can advise on the most appropriate vehicle to hire; from family day trips to visiting local attractions to a gap car rental while waiting for your new car to arrive.

All of our hire cars and vans are fully insured and less than two years old. All rental cars and vans come with Roadside Assistance as standard, so you can rent from us with confidence.

Need to Hire a Van in the Cambridge Area?

We make van hire straightforward; our large range of self drive vans are suitable for many different tasks. People need to hire a van for all sorts of reasons, from moving house to taking students to university. Vans range from small car derived models, to long and short wheel base transits and sprinters, right through to vans suitable for house removals, such as the Luton van with tail lift.

Cambridge Area - Instant Car & Van Hire Quote

Use our Quick Hire Quote feature, at the top of the page to get an instant car hire or van hire quote. As we are independent, we purchase from huge range of manufacturers, so are able to offer low prices that compete with the national brand hire companies.

People Carrier & MPV Hire

We also have a range of people carriers for hire, also known as MPV's. We have seven seater and nine seater people carriers for hire, with luggage space too. People carriers are spacious and well suited to family holidays, especially where you would struggle to fit the kids and all the luggage into your own family car.

If you have a self drive family holiday booked in the UK or Europe, or are planning a day trip with to a Theme Park, Sporting Event or Concert then we will have an MPV you can hire to suit your needs that can carry up to 7 or 9 people.
