    What are the Licence Requirements?

    You need to hold a full licence for a minimum of one year for passenger vans that carry up to 15 people. When you rent a 25 passenger van you must have a class Heavy Vehicle - Medium Rigid License at time of pick up.

    What Is the Minimum and Maximum Age for Renting a Van?

    This depends on the supplier. Sometimes the minimum age is 21, but generally it is 25 years when you rent a van. When you are under the age of 25, a Young Driver Surcharge will apply. The amount of this surcharge depends on the supplier. The maximum age is usually around 75 years. We will advise you if you are eligible to rent a van and any surcharges that are applicable before confirming your booking.

    Where Can I Rent a Van?

    Auto Europe offers worldwide passenger van hire. The most popular places to rent a van are currently in Australia, New Zealand, USA, Canada, France, Germany, Italy and the UK, but we have an extensive collection worldwide. You can find the available vans online by selecting the 'van/people carrier' option on the second page.

    Can I hire an Automatic or Manual?

    We offer both automatic and manual vans. You can select your transmission preference when making a booking online.

    What do I Need to Know When I Rent a Van?

    Although hiring a van through Auto Europe is pretty straight forward, there are some things that you need to be aware of. Some suppliers charge a delivery fee for your rental van. If you are planning to pick up the van in one location but drop it off in another, a one way fee may apply. We will confirm supplier fees with you before booking the vehicle.

    Most of the rental vans have a pick up full and return full fuel policy. The name gives it away; you pick up the car with a full petrol tank, and return it full as well. Another option is to pre-purchase fuel and return the van empty. You can select your preference in our booking engine.

    Winter Tyres are a requirement for some parts of the world during the winter season. You can add them to your booking in the booking engine. If you are not sure if you need them, let us know as we are always happy to help.

    Insurance is important. All our vehicles include basic car rental coverage, which is a legal requirement in most countries. This will cover you up to a certain amount in case of an accident or theft, but will not cover the complete cost. Always check the excess amount and if needed take out additional excess insurance such as our Excess Refund Insurance.
