European Vehicle Rental

*not available to book online*

We allow you to take our vehicles overseas for an extra charge to cover the additional mileage, and the VE103 certificate which authorises you to take the hire vehicle to Europe. The only thing we require you to do is provide European breakdown via the AA or RAC. Please contact us on 0345 222 1022 for a quote.

Finding a European hire car can be a real headache, so take a PSD vehicle with you when you go! Here at PSD Vehicle Rental, we know that there’s nothing like a road trip and with Europe just a tunnel drive or a short ferry hop away, there’s no reason why our customers shouldn’t be able to enjoy taking our vehicles overseas. Whether you’re planning a long drive to sunny Spain, a cultural trip to the Netherlands, or just a relaxing weekend in the South of France, PSD Vehicle Rental can help you.

The only things that make European hire different from our normal vehicle hire process is a small additional charge, which is put in place to help cover the additional mileage set on a car that is being driven into Europe – which, as we’re sure your route-planner has realised, will be a longer drive than anything the UK can offer – and to cover the cost of the EU’s legal VE103 Certificate, which authorises you to take a hire vehicle into Europe.

The only other thing you need to do is get in touch with the RAC or AA – whichever you prefer or use yourself – and set up their European Breakdown Cover, which is usually very quick and simple. Once that’s done, you’re covered to drive anywhere in Europe and you can drive out of the PSD lot bound for the mainland.

Whether you’re driving over on business, taking the family away for a holiday, or exploring one of Europe’s historic and beautiful cities for a weekend, you can rely on PSD Vehicle Rental to get you there. Our European hire cars are the same as our excellent UK hire cars – the only difference is in the extra mileage and the VE103 Certificate, so you’re good to go as soon as you pick the vehicle up!

Before you go, please ensure you take the time to familiarise yourself with the driving laws specific to the countries you will be visiting, for example in France you are required to have a warning triangle and high viz vest in the event of a breakdown situation.
