Frequently Asked Questions

Potential clients could possibly be confused and concerned when reading information about self-drive hire on web sites from companies who only offer removals and are concentrating their efforts on misleading information about one way self-drive van hire. Make your own mind up...

No. Van hire vehicles are rarely stopped by the Police as the sign writing clearly shows its purpose.

Thank heavens that irrespective of the type of vehicle being driven the Police and Customs will always do their job. Are self-drive vehicles of particular interest? Of course not. We did have one client delayed at customs when our vehicle was being used to transport 500 bottles of wine into the UK for her sister’s wedding. The customs held the vehicle with its contents until the lady could prove the wine was for private use, she then went on her way for her sister’s big day.

On rare occasions over the years there has been incidents involving Luton vehicles that have proven to be overloaded. These vehicles are widely used for self-drive van hire and removals all around the world and are ideal for loading items which could require a tail lift like white goods, bulky sofas, divan beds, wardrobes and chest of drawers etc. along with some boxes, but not too many.

Some companies who only offer removals are sadly concentrating their efforts on writing misleading information on websites about one way self-drive van hire and Way2Go, obviously believing we are the reason they may be struggling. They have even searched the web to find scary pictures of things going wrong for people on the other side of the world! However, we are confident that our wide range of services and vehicles, along with helpful information on the independent forums and our testimonials will allow the public to make up their own minds.

The Luton’s are great for large pieces of furniture and not so many boxes. The LWB vans are great for lots of medium weight boxes and less furniture.

Our 15m3 panel vans have a massive 1.5 ton payload and can often be filled to the roof. That’s why they are widely used around the globe by all removal and courier companies. The 22m3 Luton’s have a 1 ton payload and are ideal for lots of bulky furniture and are fitted with a tail lift for added convenience.

The average total cost is between £1280 and £1400.

With Way2Go you simply rent the van one way where the savings are greater than ever as there is no need to return the vehicle to the place of origin, no need to pay for labour costs when using a removal service, no need to pay for flights and airport transfers to your new home and in addition to this, Way2Go Hire can also offer you a discount when sailing with Brittany ferries between UK-Spain-UK. The sailing is only 24 hours and includes a cabin so no need to pay for hotels. That’s why one way van hire UK to Spain makes sense.

By using the ferry between UK & Spain 24 hours including a night’s sleep in your own cabin.

Luton vehicles average 28 mpg and the LWB vehicles average 31 mpg

The required age is 22 - 70 years plus where extra named drivers are free of charge.

The frozen deposit is security, not vehicle insurance.

A frozen deposit is an amount Lloyds of London require to ensure the safe return of our vehicle. When the deposit is frozen neither you or Way2Go have the deposit money. It has simply been locked on your card for the duration of the hire where it is released on safe return of our vehicle.

All of our vehicles are rented per calendar day not per 24 hour.

The vehicles leave our depots with a full tank of fuel for your convenience. On its return to your chosen depot it will need to have a full tank of fuel for the next client.

If we are given notice we can collect and deliver the vehicle to your nearest coach or train station at cost.

We recommend the 24 hour ferry between the UK-ES-UK where you don’t have to then pay for hotels through France and there is a significant saving on fuel and tolls.

All of our vehicles are diesel.

Half of our fleet is left hand drive where we will always endeavour to supply you the handed vehicle of your choice.

All the Luton’s are fitted with a tail lift.

The Luton’s have tie rails on the sides and the LWB vans have securing rings on the floor.

All our self drive vehicles travel as private on the ferries where the cost for both types of vehicle are the same.

Pets


Pet Transport Spain

When traveling with a pet there are items that if used will make your pet’s journey more comfortable and also be handy in case of emergencies.Travelling with Pets

Crates and Cages
If your pet is to be a regular traveler in your car then a cage or crate should be installed in the vehicle. The cage should be secured so that it does not move during the journey. It has been known for dogs in cages to survive car accidents where the car has rolled over and they walk away without a scratch afterwards. Being caged will also mean that they are safe and content with their own space during the journey. View our tools for hire.

Covers
Covering the car seats will ensure that they stay clean and sweet smelling for the human occupants. Old sheets, towels or blankets are ideal although it is possible to purchase seat covers made for the model of car that you drive. Anything that is washable is suitable for use although plastic backed covers can get hot and sweaty on long journeys.

Blankets
A blanket for your pet to sit on is ideal even if he is in his cage. If you use a blanket he is familiar with it will make the journey more reassuring for him. Keep the blankets clean as any pet smells in a confined space can be unpleasant. Lightweight fleece blankets are ideal as they wash and dry quickly.

Lead
For pets that are walked on lead always keep a spare lead in the vehicle. It is surprising how often we let out pets jump into the car off lead only to find upon arriving at our destination that there is not a lead for him to be walked with. A spare lead is also handy in case you come across a loose dog or the one your dog is wearing breaks. Never let your pet wear his lead during the journey as it can get caught and your pet will choke while you are not able to reach him.

Cleaning
* A small bag containing a few cleaning items would be very handy for pet owners. Paper kitchen towels have a multitude of uses from cleaning up a sick animal, cleaning the upholstery after an accident or even drying your own hands after handling a pet.
* Plastic bags can be used to put waste in after cleaning up your pet and also as poo bags when walking a dog.
* A spray cleaning fluid or even water in which to clean any part of the vehicle that becomes soiled. Remember that a highly scented spray can be overwhelming in a small vehicle.

Contact Details

Just as your pet should have his name tag in case he is lost you to should have some form of identity details on your person in case of accident. By placing two cards on your dashboard you can ensure that all eventualities are covered if you are indisposed. The cards should read:

* I have a pet traveling with me (name breed or type of pet).
* I have pets at home, Please contact the following person who has a key.

Also carry the details of your veterinary surgeon with you incase you pet is taken ill while you are away from home.

Mobile Telephone
Even if you are not keen on this form of instant contact by having a cheap ‘pay as you go’ mobile telephone you have help at hand if you should need it.

Water
Always carry a bottle of fresh water for your pet in case you are not able to obtain some during your journey.

First Aid Kit
A first aid kit for pets (and humans) is an essential travel item. These can be purchased from pet stores and car accessory shops.
With a little thought you can be ready for any eventuality when traveling with a pet.
