Hiring a vehicle from one of our five branches couldn't be easier! You can choose from a vast range of cars; from small city cars to large 7 or 8 seaters, estates or luxury cars. Need something larger? What about a van, or even a truck! We can supply you with any vehicle you need! So choose between the three categories below and book your vehicle now!

Our private hire rates include insurance cover (subject to status), 24 hours roadside assistance, unlimited mileage and VAT.

If you need to travel abroad, we can organise this too! Just let us know and we will issue a "European Cover", including all legal documents required when travelling overseas.

Here are a few things you should keep in mind when considering renting with us.

Minimum Driver Ages

For the majority of our vehicles, the minimum driver age is 25 years. There are certain models we can offer to 23 year old drivers (subject to status), and other models where a driver age of 30 years is required. Please contact us for further clarification.

Driving Licences

A full UK driving licence must have been held for a minimum of 24 months. International driving permits may be acceptable – please contact us for confirmation. Please inform our rental staff of any endorsements or points on the licence, regardless of age. In many circumstances, 3 points for minor offences are generally acceptable; however, any endorsement/offence should be declared at the time of booking in order to avoid disappointment at the time of collection. Please also inform us if you have had your licence suspended during the last 10 years, or have any prosecutions pending.

Accident / Claim History

Whilst it may not mean you cannot hire from us, it is important that you advise us of the following at the time of booking:

  • If you have had any accidents or claims during the past 36 months
  • If you have had an insurance proposal turned down, a policy cancelled or renewal refused,
  • If you had to pay an increased premium or had special conditions imposed by a motor insurer.


It is important that you inform us of your occupation at the time of booking, as certain occupations are not insurable under rental company policies. Some examples of these occupations are shown below. Please bear in mind that the list is not exhaustive.

  • Occupations connected to gambling or betting
  • Publicans and Club owners
  • Professional Sportspersons / Entertainers / Musicians including where other such people will be carried as passengers
  • Traders of no fixed abode
  • Any business connected to the courier industry.

Foreign Servicemen based in UK will require referral prior to confirming bookings.


Please inform us:

  • If you have any physical or mental disability or infirmity
  • If you have diabetes, or suffer from fits or any heart complaint

Customer Testimonials

Excellent service – 1st rate – Vehicle Supplied was excellent and very good value for money. Satisfaction rating 10 out of 10

J Fulcher

Great Service! Great Guys! I have rented from other companies in the past and had mixed experiences with them. I have shown up for a rental and they didn’t have a vehicle for me. I have been overcharged. You name it! I rent vehicles all the time for my band. These guys were prompt and courteous.

This is the 3rd time I've hired from Global and I love the experience. The staff are wonderful and go above and beyond to be helpful. The 1st time we only had 2 of us in the car. The 2nd time there was four and this time 5. We might need a bus next time, lol. I've hired from 2 different companies in Cambridge before and they were a total pain to deal with. You guys make the whole experience easy and I am very grateful, thanks!

A couple of weeks ago I had to rent a 17-passenger van for the film crew that I work with. I was served by your Ipswich office to get the reservation completed at very short notice (the day before pickup). They were really helpful and friendly and ensured that the process went smoothly. I’m really happy to have found you guys as we plan on working in your area a lot over the next two years, and will definitely be renting vans again! Best wishes!
