Introducing: VWFS Rent-a-Car - Try Before You Buy

A brand-approved programme brought to you by VWFS Rent-a-Car

We’re giving you the opportunity to test select vehicles from our commercial fleet. Simply enjoy the vehicle for up to 7 days and if you decide it’s the one, we’ll refund your rental costs when you order. Step into the driver’s seat of a VW Commercial Vehicle with us today. Whether you want to test one out on motorways, country lanes, around-town commutes, or by the beach sleeping under the sunset, we’re here to help. Plus, we always use the latest models with low mileage.

How does it work?

We make testing out our vehicles simple. With no hidden charges. Just what you need when you need it. Get on the road with a quick and easy booking request.

Making Your Check-In Easy

Our licence checker means you don’t need to go onto the DVLA website to get a code before you come in, as we will check this when you arrive. Our prices are inclusive of VAT and collision damage waiver with a low excess as standard.
