Hire a Van or Car & Visit Regular, Continental & Christmas Markets in Tyne and Wear

You may hire one of our vans or cars to complete a task or purely for pleasure, but whatever the reason you can be sure of pocket friendly prices. This is the time of year when our customers turn their attention towards the numerous Christmas Markets in and around Newcastle. Most of the regular, farmers and Christmas markets in Tyne and Wear are held at the weekends, either every week or monthly. A favourite schedule for many is to hire a van or car over a number of weekends, and plan out an area, visiting all of the local markets. We offer great rates on hire vans which are an excellent way to carry any gifts you purchase along the way. You frequently end up with more than you expected to!

There is always something to grab your interest at this array of markets, with farmers market stalls offering delicious home grown fruit and veg, hand made cakes and biscuits and specialist sheep’ s cheese. At this time of year even the regular markets will have a distinctly seasonal feel and you will find a wide variety of stalls to peruse. Exact dates of Christmas Markets may vary year on year but you can usually check via your local press or on the internet. There are so many in fact that you could hire a van [you will probably need one of these for all of the gifts you buy!] or car every weekend from when they start, up until Christmas.
