Welcome to the Transport Services website

Hiring in Extra Vehicles

If all our vehicles are booked or you require a specialist vehicle then you have the option to hire one in from a hire company. If you wish to do this, you will be charged the cost from the hire company (i.e. not our mileage rate), and you will have to pay for the fuel as well. You will also be charged the cost to add the vehicle to our insurance.
 
We can help by:
  • Recomending an approved hire company, currently we use Enterprise and sometimes Kendall Cars where we receive a substantial discount
  • Putting the vehicle on our insurance, thus removing hire company age restrictions
  • Providing you with Small Bus Permits and logbook
  • Paying the hire company on your behalf and charging the cost from your own funds account
If you are interested in hiring a vehicle in such a way, please contact ussu.transport@surrey.ac.uk

​If your vehicle is hired from a local hire company 
You will need to collect a hire log book from Union Reception, as this will contain your small bus permit without which you are not allowed to drive a minibus. The small Bus Permit Disc must be displayed in the windscreen. It is also important that union reception is aware of your journey in case of any problems.

Differences to hired vehicles to Students' Union vehicles
The following differences should be noted about hired vehicles
  • The vehicle will be delivered to Surrey Sports Park (Team Surrey clubs), the Students' Union or to your home address
  • Breakdown cover will be provided by the hire company, not through the Union
  • You will need to collect a logbook from the Students' Union
  • There will be no fuel card, so your club/society will have to cover this themselves
