Hire Rates

Details of our seasonal rates

Overview

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 £180, you effectively pay £7.50 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)
  • Parking for your vehicle at Scotland Overland’s base
  • Breakdown cover

We are based in Peebles, 22 miles / 35 km South of Edinburgh.  We can arrange a transfer service to collect you and bring you to our base.  Taxis from central Edinburgh or Edinburgh airport take about 45 minutes, or a bus operates every 30 minutes from central Edinburgh.

Deposits:

A non-refundable deposit of £200 is required to secure a booking (which contributes towards the final invoiced amount).  The balance of the hire charge is due 4 weeks before collection.  Credit card details are required before collection to cover the insurance excess (£1500). This is processed as a ‘pre-authoristaion’ which means a ‘block’ is placed on the credit card, rather than funds being deducted up-front.

Additionally, the following may be purchased at extra cost:
