One thing to look out for, however, is cyclists.

FAQs About Hiring a Van in Southampton

  • Where are the best places to park a people carrier in Southampton?

    You might assume that parking a people carrier means you'll need to look for a parking garage as people carriers are usually big vehicles and street parking is usually tight, but this isn't entirely the case in Southampton. If you avoid peak hours in the morning which are from 08:00 till 10.00, then you should easily find on-street parking for your people carrier. There are a number of roads that offer free on-street parking like on Court Road and William Street

  • What are the requirements for hiring a people carrier in Southampton?

    Firstly, you need to check if the model you are hiring is automatic or manual. Some licenses are only issued for automatic vehicles, and in this case, you won't qualify for a manual people carrier, but hiring a people carrier that is under 3.5 tones doesn't require any special type of driver's license. The minimum age for people carrier hire is 23 years old, and you will need to have had your driver's license for at least 1 year.

  • What should I know if I'm driving a people carrier for the first time in Southampton?

    If you are a first-time people carrier driver, you might find the seating position a be odd at first. It's much higher and more centred than in a regular car. The best thing to do with this is to adjust the seat to wear you feel comfortable and make sure you can see both door mirrors as there is no rear view mirror. The next thing to do is familiarise yourself with the controls, as they will be more spaced out than a regular car. Lastly, remember to drive slowly; a car of this size and weight moves with force, so staying in control means keeping safe levels of speed to allow time to manoeuvre the vehicle without any sudden movements.

Pros:

car Was better than I expected

Cons:

1) Alamo found one of the types to have a chip out of it so keep our GBP 300 deposit. Absolutely certain it was not us who did that ( we only did 60 miles and the car was left in secure parking over night). ......double and triple check before you hire! Video your car,

The tires were under inflated -warning lights came on, had to turn around and I had to go back to the rental place to fix it! Otherwise everything was great!

2.0 Poor

Apr 2024

KAYAK
Had to rate as poor across the board. When I booked the hire car through Kayak, the confirmation email clearly stated that Third Party Insurance was included. When I arrived to collect the car, I was told this was not the case and effectively there was no Third Party Insurance on my booking, and the excess was £100,000 unless I agreed to pay a further £280 in additional insurances. I hire cars frequently and am well aware of the different levels of insurance to consider - but I was careful to book a car where the Third Party Insurance was included. I couldn’t believe it when the team at Europcar ignored what was on the booking form and maintained that it was not, and that I would be liable for the large amount excess in the case of any incident. I refused to drive the car on that basis and currently am left over £500 out of pocket for this non refundable booking. Won’t use Europcar (or Kayak) again.

The exterior of the car was dirty, with bird droppings on it. Otherwise, the only other issue was that the car kept falsely showing low rear tire pressure.

Pros:

The lady that helped us was very patient and polite. She must meditate and listen to relaxing music in her free time to be able to cope with all the angry customers she gets.

Cons:

Off airport. Compulsary insurance which costs a fortune. From the look of it the cars that were provided had quite some damage already so maintanance/turnover is questionable. Uber was a lot more afordable in our case. We ended up going back to the airport and taking a taxi.
