European Van Hire – 0333 555 3000

Many vehicle hire companies do not allow their vans to be taken abroad. Bayfield Vehicle Hire is different… and we have years of experience when it comes to taking a hired van overseas. Whether you’re moving to mainland Europe, holidaying or travelling on business, we can tailor a European Van Hire package to suit your needs.

“I have used these guys a few times, the first time being a no-hassle European van hire to Crete, Greece. Not many van hire companies operate from UK to Greece. That hire was so trouble-free for me taking my stuff over that distance. The van was new and fab… recommend these guys any time.”

“Want to say a HUGE thanks to Elaine at Shrewsbury for arranging the delivery of our rental van for our move to Portugal. With 48hrs until our ferry left the UK and with no wheels, she went out of her way to find us a superb van with air con – she really saved our bacon! Even had it delivered to our front door and we returned it out of hours on a Sunday… what a star! Stress-free, hassle-free, extremely good value and a very comfortable air-conditioned drive through two hot countries. Cannot praise enough – would highly recommend. Thank you so much again!”

“We had a holiday booked to go over to France around Christmas time. We decided to hire a van and the vast majority of van hire firms wouldn’t do hire to France. In fact, I think Jason and his team were one of only two companies that offered it. Jason’s was the fastest firm to get back to us and the closest to where I lived at the time.

When we spoke to Jason he asked where we were going, and added in all the things we were going to need. Snow tyres, safety information, first aid kit. Before I even asked he told me what I was going to need.

The van we had was straight off the production line, with just 80 miles on it. The customer service was brilliant – Jason sourced everything we were going to need and made sure we were covered for everything. To the point actually where it was Christmas time and a bit of a rush, so we left our car at the depot. When we got back it had been washed and valeted!

If I needed to hire again Jason would be the first guy I would call.”
