Use our quick and easy guide to make sure you won't be left in the lurch with a hire van that's too small, large, narrow or wide for your requirements.

Van hire companies will often indicate the load capacity of vans in cubic metres on their websites. For most people, this isn't very helpful, so we have provided the approximate length, width and height of each van's load compartment instead.

We've also included typical payload (load weight) and fuel economy figures for each type of van - while these vary a little, our figures cover most vans and will give you an idea of what to expect. If you have a specific payload requirement, make sure you check with us when booking.

Remember, these dimensions are approximate and should only be used as an indicator. The space between the rear wheel arches will also be narrower than the load width given - usually about 40cm less.
