Budget Cambridge (Buttress and Buttress), a franchise of Budget rent a car, was born and the journey began.
Budget Cambridge (Buttress and Buttress) became Cambridge Car and Van Rental.
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!
We celebrated 25 years of business and 10 years of being fully independent. With up to 100 vehicles on our fleet, a large customer base and strong connections with the businesses
We have built a reputation we can be proud of.
During the Covid-19 Coronavirus, vehicle rental companies were exempt from closing their doors. Yet, we were still one of the only companies in
Cambridge that remained open and operational doing our part in keeping Cambridge, and many keyworkers, moving.
Our strict covid safety policies designed to keep our staff and customers safe, helped us continue to do business with confidence.
We stayed open and fully operational for all of the lockdowns during the Covid-19 pandemic.
Looking to the future, we introduced electric vehicles to our fleet for the first time. This made us one of the only car rental companies in Cambridge to
offer electric car rental to the public to hire on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.
These vehicles became very popular very quickly and so our journey with electric vehicles began.
In 2022 we changed our procedures to go digital and paperless. Gone are the days of using multiple sheets of A4 paper for every rental and instead using a much more
environmentally friendly solution.
