Picking up an airport van hire vehicle at a UK airport is a much more convenient option for arriving flight passengers than an often lengthy trip to a city centre vehicle rental depot. Airports are nearly always in a central position on the nation’s motorway network and drivers can be on their way in no time at all.
Both local and national companies maintain airport van rental counters in the terminals of the principal London airports as well as at numerous other airports which include Humberside, Blackpool, Jersey and the Isle of Man. Among the illustrious national vehicle suppliers that offer service are Europcar 4 vans and National.
Airport van rentals are provided in sizes from a compact 2.8m³ capacity car-combo hatchback up to a big Luton bodied box van capable of carrying 19.5m³. The Luton vehicles have a height limit of just over two metres and many are fitted with a back-saving hydraulic tail-lift.
Whether you need to move objects too big for a standard family saloon car or the contents of an apartment, an airport van hire is the best way of managing it. Airport van rentals are an economical option for DIY house removal. Many companies offer a one-way rental with an airport collection and a collection by a hire firm driver from a secondary location.
Although most drivers requiring airport van hire only rent for short periods, vehicle suppliers can quote discount rates for one week, one month or even 12 month rentals. Bookings and enquiries for airport van rental services can be made online, by telephone or in person.
Most vehicle suppliers provide lower rates for advance reservations as well as regular customers. UK companies such as Thrifty offer a frequent user card. Thrifty also provides a one-way service for customers wishing to drive a vehicle to an airport and drop it off there.
