Whichever rental vehicle you choose, both short- and long-term deals are available.

This depends on the type of vehicle you hire and for how long. The easiest way to get a quote is to pop your details into our online calculator. Or if you prefer, give us a call on 0345 222 1022.

Here at Prescot Self Drive, ‘value for money’ is one of our main priorities. All of our rental vehicles are available for a fantastic daily, weekly or monthly rate – and the price you’re quoted is the price you’ll pay. There are no hidden charges or unexpected fees at checkout or drop-off at our office.

We also offer a generous ‘Price Match Guarantee’. Find the same make and model vehicle elsewhere, for less, and we promise to match or beat our competitor’s price to retain your custom.

If hiring a vehicle for the first time, it can be difficult to know which is the best type for your requirements.

Further information to help you choose can be found in our blog ‘Which is the best rental car for my needs?’ and our ‘Van Size Guide’. These include useful facts about the size, style, seating capacity, luggage capacity/load space, and typical usage of our full range of rental vehicles.  

However, if you’re still unsure, you’re welcome to contact us at any time for guidance. We know our rental vehicles like the back of our hands. Once we know a bit more about your needs and wishes, we can point you in the right direction and advise on a hire car or van that’s suitable for you.
