About Pavilion Car & Van Hire

Since being established in 1964, Pavilion Car Rental has become the leading Car, Van and Minibus rental company in the Worthing area.

Lionel Broughton started the business with a Ford Anglia then increased the fleet to include the Ford Zephyr and Ford Zodiac. At one time he also hired out Bedford Dormobiles (motor-homes) during the summer holiday season.

In 1977 his son Stewart joined the business. By working together Lionel and Stewart increased the size of the fleet whilst maintaining a high quality service.

In 2002 Stewart, now working alongside his son Philip, made the decision for Pavilion Car Rental to join the United Rental Group, enabling the business to compete with some of the major players in the industry.

Gaining contracts with local companies and assisting with their transport requirements has also become part of the business structure.

Stewart’s sister Sandy joined the business in 2018.

During COVID the business remained open, classed as an essential service, hiring mainly to NHS staff, local authorities and local tradespeople.

Pavilion Car Rental Ltd will celebrate 60 years in business in 2024 and would like to take this opportunity to thank all their customers and the Worthing community for their support over the years.
