It offers several benefits over a traditional lease - it doesn’t tie you into any long-term commitments (or incur hefty short term costs). In fact, the minimum hire period is only 28 days - and after that, you can renew (or ‘roll over’) the contract as many times as you like, allowing you to return your car, van or minibus at a time and date that suits you.

Our flexible car hire prices start at just £49 per week, which includes service and maintenance costs, as well as 24 hour breakdown cover. We provide a manuf­ac­turer’­s warranty as standard too, so you can always have complete peace of mind in your new set of wheels. (That all applies to flexible van hire too!) We’ve got brilliant deals for everyone here at Intack Self Drive, whether you’re a private customer using flexi car hire services for personal transport, or a business owner who needs a fleet vehicle to ferry items (or staff) from one place to another.

FAQs section

What do I need to hire a rental car? 

Just a few essentials! You’ll require a valid photocard licence - if you have the old paper licence, then you’ll also need a valid photo ID (which needs to be your passport or other photo ID), as well as a valid credit or debit card. You’ll also need to bring with you at least one proof of address. If you’ve hired from us before, you’ll be fine with just one, but if you’re a new customer or you’ve moved since you last hired from us, you’ll need to bring two. Don’t forget to ensure that they’re dated within the last three months.

How old do I need to be to hire a car or van?

Whoever you’re hiring a vehicle from, you’ll generally need to be at least 23 years old to hire a vehicle in the UK, and you’ll need to have held your licence for at least a year. (Here at Intack Self Drive, you’ll need to be at least 25 to hire a vehicle from us, and for large cars, we require drivers to be over 30 years of age.) The requirements tend to be stricter for large cars and minibuses, and if you’re hiring a car abroad, don’t forget that age restrictions vary from country to country - so it’s always a good thing to check before you start making concrete plans!

How old do I need to be to hire a minibus?

To hire a minibus with between 9 and 12 seats, we need you to be over 25 years old, and with 2 years of driving experience under your belt. If you need something bigger like a 17 seater minibus, you’ll need to have passed your test before January 1997, or have the D1 category on your licence.
