A recent visitor to our forums asked whether any van hire companies provided satellite navigation units with their hire vans.
I replied that they were sometimes available as an optional extra, but hadn’t yet become standard. National Van Rental, for example, now offers GPS sat nav units for hire at a selection of their UK, USA and Canada branches.
In the UK, the locations from which GPS units are available are:
- Heathrow Airport
- Gatwick Airport
- Kings Cross
- Marble Arch
It’s worth noting that vans are not available to hire from airport locations – so for van hire customers only the last three locations apply.
