Our New Blog

Welcome to our new blog!

Independent Cambridge

Hopefully you saw our Facebook post in September where we announced we are now listed on Independent Cambridge ( It really is a fantastic directory for all the independent companies in and around Cambridge and we would recommend to everyone its worth a look on there. Independent companies can offer you so much more and carry that personal touch which you sometimes just don’t get from the big national/global companies.

Anne, who is the founder, came down and spent sometime with us to really learn about our business and what a local family business in the vehicle rental industry is about and can offer. She then wrote us a really nice About Us section on our Independent Cambridge page ( You will see our gallery of pictures which were taken by there photographer, Steve Linford, which was great fun.

Hybrid Cars

We have been offering Hybrid vehicles for the last few years and they have always had a relative popularity with our customers. This year however, we have seen this popularity grow which has encouraged us to take on more Hybrid vehicles than ever before.

For us our short to medium goal is to start to move all our automatic car groups to Hybrids, which are already automatics. Over the time we have been doing these, we have seen a vast improvement in them and they are much better than the first ones we had a few years ago. Whilst it may be a while yet before they are the ‘go to’ type of car customers look to hire, we have to bear in mind they are the future and we expect the popularity to continue to increase.
