Our History


Budget Cambridge (t/a Buttress and Buttress) a franchise of Budget rent a car was born and the journey began.


Budget Cambridge (t/a Buttress and Buttress) became Cambridge Car and Van Rental (t/a Buttress and Buttress).

Wanting to remain a local company and not become involved with call centres, we became a 100% independent company. It enabled us to keep that connection with our customers and ensure we had full control of customer service.

Since then we haven't looked back!


Cambridge Car and Van Rental celebrated 25 years of business with up to 100 vehicles on our fleet, a large customer base and strong connections with the businesses of Cambridge.

We have built a reputation we can be proud of.
