Vehicle Hire In Cornwall

Telephone 01209 310767

Coronavirus opening hours

Due to the current lockdown advice and reduced number of staff, the Dash Drive office will temporarily close on Saturday mornings for vehicle collections.

The Dash Drive office will remain open from Monday to Friday 08:30 to 17:00 for all vehicle enquiries, bookings and collections.

Our customers can still book weekend hires online and collect vehicles on the Friday from 13:00 onwards. We offer our weekend hire customers an out of hours return service, by using our key drop off service.

Due to the current COVID-19 guidelines, we have put robust cleaning and sanitising procedures in place to ensure all rental vehicles are presented to our customers to the highest standard.

We will always endeavour to keep customer inconvenience to a minimum, but you may experience some delays or amendments to online booking and collection times.

We are also operating with a maximum capacity of 3 customers in the Dash Drive office at any time so we please ask that you try and arrive as close to your appointment time as possible. We do ask that facial coverings are worn throughout the premises to comply with Government guidelines.

If you have any questions please call 01209 310767 or email

Thank you for your support and we look forward to welcoming you.
