About vanrental.co.uk


What we offer

vanrental.co.uk is an independent van hire price comparison website. Our unique price comparison system allows you to search for vans, compare prices and view pickup and drop-off locations on a map. All in one place.

Our van hire database contains more than 1,600 van rental branches in over 550 locations in the UK and Ireland. There's bound to be one near you.

The website was originally launched as MyLocalVanHire.co.uk in 2007, before rebranding to vanrental.co.uk in 2011. Our goal is to provide the most comprehensive van hire website in the UK.

We also understand that for many people, hiring a van can be a bit scary. That's why we have a wide range of beginner's guides and other useful resources to help first-time van hirers work out what type of van they need and how to drive it (don't worry, it's very similar to hiring a car!).

How our price comparison engine works

We operate our own price comparison system and are completely independent. vanrental.co.uk isn't owned by a hire company. Each time you do a search, we request live price and availability information from all the hire companies in our database for that location.

We list the results we get in strict price order, from cheapest to most expensive. Companies for which we can't provide a live price are listed at the bottom, with a link to their website for a quote.

We don't add anything on to the prices you see. The prices we show should always be the same as you'd get if you went direct to the company.

When you choose a vehicle from our results you will leave vanrental.co.uk and be transferred to the hire company's own website to make a booking.

We only offer price comparison. We don't take payment or handle van hire bookings. If you have a query about your booking, please contact the hire company directly.

How we make money

We are completely independent and are not owned by any hire company. Our focus is always on trying to provide the best possible deal for you, the customer. We do not add anything to the prices you see, which come directly from the hire company offering the service.

However, in order to maintain this service, the website does need to make money. As a result, some of the companies listed on vanrental.co.uk pay a fixed advertising fee to us each year in return for being listed. Most of the other companies we feature pay us a commission for each successful sale that comes from this website. Here's how this works:

  • You click on a link in our search results
  • You go to that company's website
  • You book and pay for vehicle hire
  • We receive a commission payment after your booking has completed
