Van hire: moving back to university

Friends With Smartphones Banner

It’s the end of the summer holidays and after all the fun and excitement and resting up, or maybe working, it’s now time to turn your attention to that one big hurdle you have to get over after every summer break. It’s time to start focusing on moving back to campus or your apartment. Important decisions have to be made. Several related questions are now tumbling through your mind begging to be answered. How will you move all your things back to your university digs? When are you going to move? How much is it going to cost you? Who will be able to assist you, and do you have access to the right vehicle for moving?

This is the time when you turn to family, friends and a trusted van hire company such as Europcar for help in getting off to a smooth start for the next academic year.

Money saving, budget living

Living on a budget is synonymous with going to university. It’s a reality many of us know very well. This is that phase of life where scouting out and taking advantage of money saving deals becomes such a regular ritual that eventually becomes almost subconscious action, much like breathing. Is it less costly to rent a vehicle and make a one-way journey rather than footing the cost of fuel, having someone drive you there or taking public transportation? A bonus money saving option would be to pool with a fellow student travelling to the same city to do the rental and journeying together.



Helpful friends and family

Friends and family will often try to help out the best way they can by maybe offering the ride back for the move or donating towards the expense of moving. A great option for you is to gather your pennies and use the services of a low-cost friendly rental company such as Europcar. You’ll find this especially useful if you have to plan your moving date around the availability of your friends or family. Renting a vehicle gives you the freedom of setting your moving date and travelling at your own leisure. Don’t forget that you can book a one-way journey.

Van rental to make the move easier

Once you have decided to pursue van hire, there is still a couple vital details to cover to ensure a perfect back to school move that sees you travelling in comfort and saving some much-needed  extra cash: the type of vehicle that is best suited for moving all of your things for example, and if it fits your budget, the number of friends you will be travelling with…

Our large choice of vans will make it all possible.

Planning ahead and making the right decisions saves you time, money, and lots of hassle. Now having all those elements in mind, just go for it!
