What you need to know before you hire a hat


Prices for hire range from £30-£125 for spring/summer and £45-£105 for Autumn/Winter.

Initially, we recommend that you book an appointment to choose the hat you would like to hire, as we carry a large selection. Please make sure that you bring the full outfit you are wearing to the occasion, as well as shoes, bag, etc.

All details below must be completed before we release the hat.

  • Payment
  • Contract – signed and agreed 

The hirer will be asked to sign an agreement at the time of booking. If the hat is lost or damaged, the amount payable is the value of the hat plus an extra hire charge.

The agreement states the value to replace the particular item if it is lost, stolen or damaged (including any dents, loss of decoration or water damage).

The value must be paid to Ultimate Design Hats by the hirer should this happen.

Hire duration is for a maximum of three days, if the hat is not returned within this period, Ultimate Design Hats may charge for extra hire time. Subsequent days without notice will apply.

Credit card details will be taken as a form of deposit and will only be deducted accordingly after discussion between the hirer and Ultimate Design Hats.

Account details will be required for the refund to be processed once the hat has been returned in perfect condition and within the time frame agreed.

Cancellation of a hat-hire must be made no less than one week before the event in order for a refund to be issued.

Ultimate Design Hats understands that the Scottish weather is inevitable, however, care should be taken when wearing a hat/headpiece in the rain.  All hats and/ or fascinators should be kept under an umbrella at all times as all hats/headpieces are very vulnerable if subjected to rain.

The hat hire fee is for one wear/one day only. The hats must be returned in person and not via a third party unless previously discussed with Ultimate Design Hats. 


All hat boxes must be returned.

Thank you for your co-operation and custom.
