Welcome to U Drive 

Low Cost Car and Van Hire

Best prices locally Guaranteed - If you can find a better deal we'll match it!

We are an independent and privately owned company providing van and car hire in Aberdeen for nearly 25 years. We provide highly competitive deals on car & van hire and our aim is to provide you with a vehicle to suit your needs and your budget. To do this we offer a unique two tier tariff with newer or older vehicles depending on your requirements.

Our used car fleet ranges from a basic set of wheels just to get you from A to B like the Nissan Micra to our largest car, the 7 seat Vauxhall Zafira. Our newer car fleet has a range of vehicles up to 5 years old.

We also offer the same newer or older options for our van fleet, but we only use Ford Transits for their unbeaten reliability. Our smallest van is the Transit Connect and our largest is the 3.5 Tonne Luton with tail lift which is ideal for larger house moves. Our minimum hire is 4 hours. We also hire sack barrows and stair climbers to help you move things more easily with less effort. Our office is based in the city centre and less than 7 miles from Aberdeen Airport.


The following applies to all rental bookings commencing after 8th June 2015, for drivers who hold a UK mainland driver licence issued by the DVLA.

  1. As of Monday June 8th, the DVLA will stop issuing the paper counterpart part of the driver licence and those currently in circulation will no longer have any legal status and should be destroyed.

  2. For all rental bookings where you are using our insurance, we will have to check your entitlements and endorsements using the DVLA "Share My Licence" service.

  3. For us to be able to do this, you must acquire a unique code from the gov.uk website and share this with us when you pick up your vehicle. We then use this code to validate your entitlements and endorsements. Details of how to use this service are provided on https://www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence or you can also request a code by calling 0300 790 6801. This also applies if you holds a paper licence that was issued before 1998.

  4. IMPORTANT, you can only access this service up to 21 days prior to the vehicle pick-up for the access code to be valid for us to check your details. The code can only be used once.
