Please note: we are temporarily not offering one-day self-drive vehicle hires until further notice.
You can rent for one day, but minimum charge is equivalent to two days rate, sorry! This is due to cost increases with our overheads such as cleaning fees and many other aspects.
Prices include insurance for self-drive hire, or we can supply an experienced driver
Our splitter vans are designed & built specifically for touring musicians and film production use. They are also great for family holidays, sporting trips and airport pickups. Standard features on all of our vehicles are ULEZ compliant (saves £12.50 per day in London), air-conditioning, parking sensors and either USB or 230v standad UK power sockets.
All of our 9 seat vans are London Congestion Charge exempt. They feature various types of entertainment system (either Apple TV, DVD etc, and some can be supplied with optional games console – or bring your own!). 9 seat splitter type vans come with 230v power sockets for charging laptops, mobile phones & camera batteries. Our film vans usually have larger inverters to run clothes steamers & hair dryers - please sepcify if this is required. They also feature comfy reclining leather seats either forward facing or around a table. Splitter vans are unique in that they have a bulkhead (split wall) separating the passenger compartment from the large cargo storage area, enabling you to stack cargo up to the roof without danger to passengers. All cargo bays feature deadlocks on both 6 and 9 seat splitter vans.
We can also supply smaller production vehicles. These include 4×4 7-seat luxury SUV cars, estate cars, Mercedes Vito 6 seater mini splitters etc. We include unlimited mileage on splitter vans and cars, subject to fair use policy.
