Van Hire Under 25

Vans are larger vehicle in general than cars, and considering that majority of the time car hire suppliers require that you are over 25 then it was safe to assume the same rule would be applicable to vans. This is due to the insurance premiums that the rental companies have to pay in order to be able to accommodate young drivers, however we weren’t deterred and we have managed to find a few suppliers who will allow van hire for under 25s, as long as certain restrictions are met.


Can you rent a van under 25?

In most cases you can’t, however we have arranged a van hire deal in which we can accommodate drivers from the age of 23, and with no daily additional fee which is typical for young drivers. If you’re looking to rent a van and you are under the age of 25 we may be able to help, subject to a few T&Cs such as the driver having held their licence for at least a year. If you are interested in this offer, please contact us directly as it is specialist.

  • Locations are limited, so check with us first

When you book your van hire reservation we will tell you exactly what documentation that you need to bring and it will be on your rental confirmation. If you want to know before hand so you can get your documents in order, here is what you need on the day in order to pick up your van:

  • A full driving licence you have held for a year
  • One or two proofs of address, which can be a bank statement or utility bill, dependant on the rental companies conditions.

Highly recommended

I was getting increasingly worried as I had holidays booked, but could not hire a car, as I do not a credit card. I came across Indigo and it could not have been more straightforward to sort something out. I have used it again to hire a van for some removals, and once again it went well. I shall be carry on using Indigo.
