When you book with us we need to know your name, address, telephone number, credit or debit card number and expiry date. We also need the drivers' age to enable us to process the booking. As a booking agent Van Hire 3000 passes on essential booking details to our Van rental partners in order to confirm your booking.

Disclosure to third parties
Van Hire 3000 never discloses personal information about its customers to third parties without prior consent, except in the case of an emergency or if we are legally obliged to do so. We will not sell or rent any personally identifiable information we receive from you.
Van Hire 3000 may provide statistics about our customers, sales and booking patterns and related information to third parties, but these will not contain any personally identifying information.
Please note that the information you provide for your booking will be transferred outside the European economic area if your rental takes place outside of this area. By submitting your order, you consent to this transfer.
Van Hire 3000 is committed to ensuring that the information you provide in making a booking is secure. To do so we use SSL (secure socket layer) technology the recognised industry standard. This encrypts all your personal information including your credit card details, so that it cannot be read as it is sent over the internet. Once your transaction has been completed, your personal information is stored on a secure computer, not on the web server, so it cannot be accessed through the internet. To verify that your browser is using the secure server look for a small padlock icon on the lower part of your browser window. If it is shown in the 'locked' position, your transaction is secure.
