Do you need to hire a car or van, but not sure where to start?
Well, the good news is that Arnold Clark Car & Van Rental is here to help.
With almost 40 branches across the UK, we offer expert vehicle hire to customers from all over the world.
And to make things that little bit easier, we’ve put together this handy, step-by-step guide to help you on your journey.
To start, it's important to make sure you find the right vehicle that will fit you.
You’ll want to think about when you’ll need the car or van, and for how long. If you need it early in the morning or late at night, some branches might not be open and you may need to pick up the vehicle at an alternative time.
It’s not essential, but we suggest that you hire a car or van you are familiar with, so that you are confident you can drive and park it easily.
If you're not driving alone, you can add additional drivers to the hire; just let us know when you book, but don’t forget that you need to be 23+ years old to hire a vehicle.
Once you've decided on those details, you can get a free quote from our website and make your reservation.
When you go to your preferred branch to pick up your hired vehicle, you will need your DVLA code, a current valid driving licence, credit card and a recent bill or bank statement.
