Booking a family trip or time away can be a stressful task. It takes some real organisation and thorough planning to ensure that everything runs smoothly and nothing important gets left behind.

With the festive season upon us, many families are looking forward to a winter road trip to celebrate the Christmas holidays with their loved ones. Packing for a weekend away isn’t usually a big problem, but if you are an over-packer (you either ARE one, or you’re WITH one!) or are planning on taking gifts with you, then you’ll soon discover just how little space you have to work with.


Hiring A Van for Travel

Hiring a van isn’t usually the first thing to come to mind when you’re going on a road trip, but here at Squab, the uses for van hire are endless.

Today, we’re going to be talking about how a hire van can be useful for your next trip, so you can focus on packing and spend less time worrying about how everything is going to fit in the car.


More Space for Extras

Having to pack the bare essentials isn’t always ideal, is it? Especially during the winter months where jumpers and coats are bulky and take up so much space. Being able to pack freely with multiple outfit options and a different pair of shoes for each day is much more appealing to most.

Nowadays, car boots just aren’t as big. It can be difficult to pack a week’s worth of shopping in the back of a car, let alone a week’s worth of clothing and toiletries. Hiring a van from Squab gives you the freedom to pack more of the necessities, including the Christmas presents, of course. You don’t have to make as many choices at home as you can quickly and easily chuck it all in.



Nobody wants to be sitting on the motorway unable to put your feet down comfortably in the footwell due to the amount of bags and jackets that haven’t quite been able to fit in the back of the boot. We’ve all been there.

Being able to pack everything away neatly makes for a much more comfortable journey, and easier unpacking when you arrive at your destination.

Our vans come in a range of different sizes, so you don’t have to feel like you’re driving a minibus. Choosing the right van for you couldn’t be easier. Spacious, clean, and well looked after, our vans are comfortable to drive for both short and long-haul journeys.



If you’re driving a long way and are worried about your current car being unreliable then our safety checked, top of the range vans will give you peace of mind. Each van also comes with a built-in sat-nav and tracking system to get you where you’re going with ease.

If you’re planning a festive break and are considering hiring a van from Squab, then get in touch with our team today. We would be happy to suggest a van perfect for the journey. Have a wonderful holiday season.
