Short and Long Term Car Hire


  • We provide free of charge on site parking (at the owner’s risk)
  • When booking a hire vehicle, it can be arranged free of charge for an additional driver to be included, however they must be able to attend on collection.
  • All hirers must be in possession of their full driving licence, for new style licences we must see both the parts (this is the photo card and paper licence that accompanies). Old licences are accepted with proof of identification such as a passport. We also ask for proof of address in the form of a recent utility bill, bank statement etc.
  • All payments must be made at commencement of hire with credit card, debit card or cash. Unfortunately we can no longer accept cheques.
  • All hirers must be 21 and over, having had a full UK driving licence for at least 2 years.
  • When hiring, you are liable for an insurance excess, there are two options:
  • The first is a fixed excess of £500.
  • The second is a fixed excess of £200 upon which a collision damage weaver of £9 per day is required.

(Please see our more detailed Terms and Conditions for details of liability).
