If you plan to travel with a group of friends to a destination or a planned event, you may want to think of hiring a multi-purpose vehicle, also called an MPV. By making this choice, you can cut the per-person transportation cost and enjoy better fuel economy.

Booking a Van Hire

To take advantage of this type of cheap van hire in Leicester, you must meet certain criteria. These criteria are listed as follows:

  • To book online, you must select the time and dates for your rental.
  • Next, choose the vehicle – in this case, an MPV.
  • Select any extras you wish to include, such as a mobile GPS or a baby seat.
  • Include your personal details, including payment method, before you confirm the booking.
  • Wait 24 hours for the car hire company to call you to confirm your van hire booking.

The Minimum Age Requirement

When renting a standard vehicle, you must be at least 21 years old. Both renters and additional drivers must meet this age requirement. Also, you should present your driving licence when picking up a rental vehicle. If you have a licence from outside the UK, it must be in English. If the licence is in another language or does not feature a photo, you must present an international driving permit as well.

Typically, you need to provide a deposit when you are hiring a vehicle. The deposit can be paid by a credit card that is internationally recognised. No cash deposits are normally accepted. A credit card should always be in the name of the renter, who should be present when he or she picks up a vehicle.
