Van Hire FAQ’s

How old do I need to be before I can hire a van?

Drivers wishing to hire a van must generally be over the age of 21, though restrictions exist from company to company regarding the hiring of different classes of vans. Lighter vehicles are often readily available to ‘younger drivers’, whilst heavier vans and vehicles are often restricted, and are typically only hired to qualifying individuals between the age of 25-70.
Restrictions regarding age may also be applied to waivers and insurance surrounding the van hire, for example, All Trans Autos include fully comprehensive insurance with van hire for those aged between 21 and 70, but persons under the age of 25 are not permitted to reduce the excess.

What type of driving licence do I need to be able to rent a van?

Though individual van hire companies have differing restrictions, those holding a standard category B licence may legally drive a van with a maximum authorised mass below 3500kg. No trailer may be used with the van in this case.
Hiring and operating a heavier van, or attaching a trailer or any kind to a van generally requires a licence with additional entitlements, with exceptions for those who obtained a category B license prior to the 1st of January 1997. Drivers in this category are legally allowed to operate Cat B, Cat B+E, and Cat C1 vehicles. Out with this, the most common licence used in van hire is category C1, which allows for the hire of vans up to 7500kg.

What documents do I need to hire a van?

Van hire companies will generally require documentation relating to hiring, and driving. For hire, proof of address (and new address if the van is being used for moving) and signature are required, whilst the driver should provide a photocard driving licence, proof of current address, proof of signature, and new address if applicable.
Further requirements may include a notification of any existing points on the licence of the driver prior to the day of hiring to allow for processing.
All Trans Autos provide EU van hire - The documents required for this are much the same as UK hire in our case; however, the hirer will be asked to provide proof of European Breakdown Cover, with repatriation to the UK. Our RAC cover does not extend to overseas and the hirer is required to buy European breakdown cover. The insurance document is required at the time of the hire.

How do I get my DVLA access code?

The DVLA access code is the online counterpart of your photocard driving licence. It serves as a replacement for the now-defunct paper accompaniment to the driving licence. This code allows for the viewing or sharing of information such as driving record, penalty points, and disqualification.
A DVLA access code is often required for van hire. Luckily, it is easily obtained through the GOV UK website. The code, once given, is valid for 21 days, but may only be used once. An individual may have up to 15 active DVLA access codes at any given time.
In order to obtain your code, you’ll need to know your driver number, postcode, and national insurance number. If you’re having trouble accessing your code online, the DVLA will provide a code over the phone.

What is a collision damage waiver (CDW)?

A CDW is an optional type of protection allowing for the imposition of a limit on how much a vehicle hire company may charge the hirer for repairs. A CDW essentially waives the right of the rental company to charge excessively high reparation fees in the event of damage or an accident – though restrictions and excess will still apply.
All Trans Autos offer persons over the age of 25 the option of reducing excess from £500.00 to £175.00 at the price of £8.00 per day. There is the option of taking out windscreen and tyre damage cover for a fee of £5.00 per Day

Dean T.

Was struggling to find a last-minute van for hire on a Friday afternoon to use on Saturday. All Trans Autos had a Luton van available for the Saturday which was easy to hire with everything well explained. Managed to drop off later the same day when some companies would look for a whole weekend hire cost. The service was superb and always willing to help with any questions. Thanks for saving the day!
