Cheap Van Hire

How to save money when hiring a van

Everyone wants the best deal possible when hiring a van. No matter if you are renting for personal or business use, saving money without compromising on the type of vehicle or service will play a big part in your decision about which company to rent with.

For cheap van hire deals, book online

Reduced administration costs mean that van rental companies are able to offer discounts for van hire when you book online, their web sites offer a convenient channel through which to promote deals as and when business requires.

Quotes are often based upon a daily rate so If possible plan to return your van an hour or so before the time you collected to avoid being charged for an extra day. Watch out for cheap van hire deals and take advantage when you can!

Look for van hire special offers

Most of the national van rental suppliers promote special offers or discount van hire at certain times of the week, month and year to keep reservation numbers up or as business needs dictate. The majority of personal van rental bookings for example are over the weekend, which means many vans are unused midweek. To alleviate this problem companies such as Sixt offer cheap mid week van hire to help generate business.

Remember that online special offers usually have rates which start and finish at specific times, for example, weekend van hire may start at 12:00 pm on a Friday and finish at 09:00 am on the following Monday, booking outside of these hours will cancel the discounted rates meaning you pay more.

Use discount van hire codes

Discount codes are not used extensively in the van rental industry although it is worth experimenting with car hire codes as it is sometimes possible to use these instead.

Book your van well in advance

When renting the more specialist vans such as the Luton tail-lift, it pays to book well in advance. Chances are the rental company will only have a limited number of these vehicles on fleet and they may be based at the more popular locations. This type of van is popular with people moving house towards the end of each month, booking well in advance may not only save you money but also avoid disappointment and give the rental company time to move the vehicle to the pick up location of your choice.
