When planning your special day, every detail counts, with the choice of your wedding car being no exception. However, understanding wedding car hire prices is crucial in making an informed decision that aligns with both your dream and your budget.

At Premier Carriage, we believe in providing transparent and comprehensive information about wedding car costs, helping you navigate this aspect of your wedding planning confidently.

So, let’s explore the various wedding car options and price points, ensuring you have all the necessary details to choose a wedding car that enhances your big day and leaves you with room to manoeuvre on your wedding spreadsheet.

What Factors Influence Wedding Car Hire Costs?

Wedding car hire prices can vary depending on all sorts of factors, including the type of vehicle chosen and whether you wish to hire wedding transport simply to take you to your ceremony venue or, in addition, the onward trip to the reception venue after the ceremony.

Below is a rundown of the key cost drivers of wedding car hire:

Type of Wedding Vehicle Hired

As you would expect, the choice of vehicle plays a significant role in determining the cost.

Luxury cars such as Rolls-Royces or Bentleys typically come in at a higher price than standard models. Likewise, classic and vintage cars usually cost more to hire due to their rarity and the maintenance required to keep them in pristine condition.

Larger vehicles, such as Routemaster London Buses, also command a higher fee due to their higher passenger capacity.

Duration of Wedding Car Hire

Hire length is a crucial factor in wedding car prices. Most companies, including ourselves, offer a package based on a set number of hours, with additional costs accrued for hire periods over and above this set timeframe.

In fact, one of the ways to secure the cheapest wedding car hire prices is to reduce the amount of time you hire the vehicle – such is the influence of the overall cost.

Distance Travelled by Wedding Car

Like time spent with the vehicle, the distance travelled is also an important pricing factor. For reference, travel distances include the journey to the pickup location, the ceremony, and the reception venue.

Longer distances may incur higher charges due to fuel and the time commitment from the driver. This factor is most relevant if you’re after a very rare or unique vehicle based a considerable distance across the country from your wedding ceremony or reception venue.

Season and Day of the Week

The date of your wedding can influence the price. Due to increased demand, peak wedding seasons and weekends, especially Saturdays, often have higher rates. Conversely, you might find lower prices during off-peak times like weekdays or winter months.

Location-Specific Costs

Depending on your wedding location, there may be additional costs to consider. For example, in urban areas like London, charges such as congestion or Ultra Low Emission Zone fees might be applicable.

What's the Average Cost of Wedding Car Hire?

When planning your wedding, understanding the average cost of wedding cars is essential for budgeting and ensuring that your special day aligns with your financial plans. Across the UK, the cost of wedding car hire varies, but there are general averages you can consider for different types of vehicles.

Remember, these are average figures, and the final cost can vary based on your specific requirements, the hire duration, and any additional services you may choose. It's always best to get a detailed quote based on your needs to ensure an accurate estimate for your wedding car hire.

Wedding Car Hire Prices By Vehicle Type

Wedding car prices below are based on a 3-hour hire from when the car arrives at the collection address (typically 15 minutes before the first planned departure) and includes the drive to the ceremony, waiting during the ceremony, and then onward to the reception venue.
