Flexible, Competitively Priced Car, Van and Minibus Hire for Home and Abroad

In this Section:

At Practical Car and Van Rental, Glossop, we believe in the importance of offering a fully flexible car and van hire service, which is why we always have our thinking caps on when it comes to saving you time and money. You can choose from our hire cars, vans and minibuses to drive in the UK, or on the continent in places such as Spain and France. This is popular where people are wishing to visit these locations, and would like to experience the European scenery and sights rather than simply flying over them en-route.

Driving your vehicle abroad can be a satisfying experience allowing you to experience different ways of life first hand. There are many small, rustic villages which hold regular festivals and carnivals, which are rarely seen by tourists, as they may not be close to main destinations. This also brings the unique opportunity not only to take in other cultures, but to sample delicious local wines and food, as well as practising your French or Spanish. People take our vehicles abroad for other reasons too such as travelling to trade shows with the contents of a stall, samples and other paraphernalia. Perhaps you wish to hire a minibus and take a group of friends or colleagues on a fishing trip, golfing break or short sightseeing trip, whatever the reason, Practical Car and Van Rental, Glossop are here for you.
