Driver Requirements & Hire Information

Cancellation of hire requires a minimum of 48 hours notice or the full hire price will be retained.

Driver Requirements

  1. Driver must be aged between 21-69
  2. No more than 6 minor penalty points (exceptions can be made with an insurance referral from Gibbs Vehicle Hire).
  3. 17 seater Minibus drivers must be aged between 21-69 with category D1 entitlement.

A £50 card deposit is required (refundable once vehicle has been returned with no faults and fuel is back to the supplied level – refunds normally take 3-5 working days but can take up to 10 working days depending on the bank).

Collision Damage Wavier
All rentals from Gibbs Vehicle Hire come as standard with a £1000 excess. This means, in the event of the vehicle being damaged by yourself or a 3rd party you will be liable for up to £1000. The excess can be reduced by taking out the Collision Damage Waiver. This is priced at £10 per day/per driver and reduces the excess to £500.

What information do I need to send before my hire?
1. Photo of the drivers Licence (check expiry date)
2. 2nd proof of identification (Passport or utility bill)
