How much are VW van hire deposits?

The deposit on all Volkswagen commercial vehicles is £500.00, and is payable along with the rental charge upon collection. All payments are taken as a physical payment from a debit/credit card and refunded upon return provided there is no NEW damage.

How do I get a deposit refund?

Provided your Euro Van Hire VW van rental returns:

  • Undamaged and in good condition
  • With a minimum ¼ of a tank full of fuel
  • Within the hire period
  • Without any insurance excess claims

You can expect your deposit to be refunded to you on the original debit/credit card. Any extra fees/charges incurred will be deducted from the deposit.

What is insurance excess?

An insurance excess is the amount you are responsible to pay if the rental van sustains any damage whilst in your possession.

How much is insurance excess?

Insurance excess depends on a range of variables: your age, driving history, and size of the Volkswagen commercial vehicle.

The driver is liable for any loss or damage sustained to their VW van rental as well as any third party claims. The van rental deposit can be used to cover your insurance excess but only in the event of an OWN fault accident claim, or in the event the vehicle is returned with new damage which repair cost falls below the insurance excess.
