What types of vehicles can you hire? 

Car hire Cambridge

Those who buy cars need them in all shapes and sizes, so those that hire them do too, which is why our selection of hire cars is so vast. From the small, nippy city cars like the Kia Picanto that make journeys around Cambridge so easy, to larger vehicles like the Hyundai Tucson and MPVs that are perfect for touring the beautiful surrounding countryside, we offer something for everyone.

Each car has a fuel-efficient engine, saving you money, and giving you peace of mind when you trust Rent Direct for car hire in Cambridge. 

Van hire Cambridge

Vans large and small are available to hire from us here at Rent Direct, whether you need a small Ford Transit Connect style van for a swift, small move, to a larger Volkswagen Crafter or Luton van (complete with tail lift).

Each of our vans is ply lined, with exposed points with which you can secure your load. We know you’ve probably got a lot of other things going on, so it’s our pleasure to make van rental in Cambridgeshire super simple.
