Hire charges are calculated from the total hours between collecting and returning the vehicle. The daily hire rates below represent the cost per 24 hour period. If the daily hire rate is £150, you effectively pay £6.25 per hour for each hour you have the car.
Our minimum hire period is 3 nights / 4 days: shorter hires are possible, but will be subject to a minimum rate equivalent to hiring for this period. Our hire rates are shown below, and are inclusive of the following:
- VAT (Value Added Tax)
- Comprehensive insurance for one driver (aged between 23 and 75 years old and with a clean licence. A premium may be payable for those outside of the age range or with points on their licence).
- Collection and return of vehicle at Scotland Overland’s Base (Peebles) or anywhere in central Edinburgh (Edinburgh airport, Glasgow and other locations are available at extra cost: see below)
