Depot locations for campervan and motorhome rental
Where shall I collect my Motorhome from?

This is one of the most frequent replies I make from emails that clients send to me.

They include the dates and number of people travelling but I need more than that.

I do need to know the age of the driver.  In some cases, although not all, the driver needs to be over 25.  This is not the case in all countries though.

In many you can hire at 21.  You must hold a credit card in your name in all cases.

Motorhome rental.
Hire a campervan or motorhome.

One way hires are more expensive and in Europe there is an extra charge applied on the basis of Euro1.00 for every 1km between the pick up and drop off depots.

This is because the hire supplier will have to send someone to pick it up and return it to its original destination.

One way hires in Canada, USA and Australia and New Zealand are usually a fixed charge and this is often waived if the hire is for longer than 21 days.

One way hires often take longer to approve as the release of a vehicle is at the discretion of the fleet manager and they work out where the vehicle has to be for the next customer to rent it out.  Also, where that vehicle is before your hire.

Reviews

We are often asked to recommend a type of campervan or motorhome for holidays or road trips or just as a spare room.  We have to ask quite a lot of questions before we can suggest which one will fit the requirements of our customers.  We can make suggestions but ultimately it is up to the customer to make the final decision.  To help you make that decision I have outlined below what we like to know before we can make a recommendation.

Campervan hire. Follow your dreams.
Campervan hire. Follow your dreams.

Also, there are many review sites that you can refer to but often these highlight the bad experiences that people have that can sometimes happen.  All of the campervan and motorhome suppliers that we book on our websites www.campervans.com and www. budgetcampervans.com have been in business for many, many years and so are reliable and they have our confidence too as we have been booking campervan and motorhome rental for nearly 20 years.

4 berth camper hire
Explore the world

Our customers will often search online for reviews.  However, it is difficult to know who are the main suppliers of rentals in each country and who is new and who is long established.

6_berth rv rental
6 berth campervan rental in America.

Our website now has a star rating system that you can refer to.  We only put stars on the vehicles once they have received over 10 ratings.

Spaceships rating

Rating

You can select from the left hand menu by rating which standards you would like to see displayed.

We also offer a filter that will display the age of the vehicles.  This is important in many ways but often the age of the vehicle will determine its daily rental rate. However, if you book early you are likely to get a really new campervan at the same price as a very old one.  This is how some suppliers work. It is a similar system to pricing as the airlines use. Book early,  fill the seats, put the price up nearer to the date of departure.

Bike rental with motorhome rental.
Take your bikes on your campervan hire holiday.

If you are on a budget then definitely book early to take advantage of this pricing structure.  You will find this particularly in RV rental in America and Canada and also in New Zealand and Australia.

The European and UK rental companies will usually offer discounts for early bookings but not on the flex rates that change every week.

2 berth hi-top rental
Rent a campervan for your honeymoon.

If you are on a budget and are considering an older vehicle then be prepared to be offered a vehicle that has done high mileage (particularly in Australia, Canada and the USA).  The vehicle will be tired around the edges and worn.  But they do offer good value for money as they should be well maintained and clean.

5 berth hi-top rental
You can all sleep in comfort in your camper home for you holidays.

They are also more prone to breakdown but this is avoided as it is costly for the rental supplier as they have to take time to repair the vehicle and in some cases deliver a replacement.  Hire suppliers don’t want your vehicle to break down as it costs them money.

The reviews seen on line usually highlight breakdowns or malfunctions in the campers and motorhomes.  This is unfortunate but things do stop working on occasions or pipes do get blocked.  If there is a problem and it has been unreported by a previous hirer then the next customer suffers because of it.

Luxury motorhome rental.
Luxury motorhome rental.

Sometimes people who rent vehicles are reluctant to make the hire supplier aware of a problem for fear of being charged for repairs or breakages and this has the knock on effect for the next client.

It is in our interest and in the best interests of our rental suppliers that our customers and clients are happy as return customers are the backbone of any business and we find that our customers will recommend us again and again for offering the correct vehicle at the right price.

Upstairs bed.
Climb up to your bed.

The right price for one customer is not the same as the right price for another.  We have people who want the very best vehicles we can offer.  These are large, sleep at least six people, have slide out sides to offer more space.  They are not cheap. These customers want the very newest and the top of the range motorhomes as they want to travel long distances for many months.

Sleeper car rental.
sleeper car rental.

Our backpacker customers want the best and cheapest rate possible. They don’t want in built toilet and showers and luxury kitchens.  They just want a vehicle to sleep in and make a cup of tea or heat up noodles.   These vehicles are basic, older and cheap.  They are more like sleeper cars than campervans.  But they are on our lists.  The reviews against these vehicles are often because they are old and worn.

The low-top or hi-top have kitchens and a double bed.  The space is limited but if you are staying in campsites each night you don’t need showers and a toilet on board.  You may want to cook a more sophisticated meal and need a fully stocked kitchen and you want to sleep under a duvet (or doonah) with pillows and not a sleeping  bag.

These campers are mid-priced and do vary in age but are a great budget vehicle.

Always consider the sleeping arrangements.  If you are tall check out the bed sizes:

Check the bed size of your campervan.
Check the bed size of your campervan.

Some suppliers will also vary the thickness of the mattress too.

If this is important to your holiday, then please double check that the bed sizes suit. Also, consider the single and double bed configuration. Some people prefer to have separate beds, but some campervans have single beds only suitable for children. Others have double beds above the cab and this is great if you are ok climbing the ladder at night.

Larger vehicles have bigger double beds.

Are you happy making the bed up each night?  Some vehicles require that you move the cushions around and bring out a base support to create a double bed at night. So check out the “day and night time layout” as this means you have to convert the layout at night.

Day layout of a campervan

Night time layout of your campervan.

The amount of time you spend in the camper will help you make the decision on what size of camper.  You can have a layout that has a permanent table or a permanent bed or both.  You can have a larger kitchen with a three way fridge and small freezer depending on whether you want to cook a full dinner or if you prefer to eat out or bbq or just heat up food.

Some campervans and motorhomes have microwaves fitted but these will only work if you are hooked up to the mains electricity supply.  Check the length of the hook up wire, some can be quite short.

Rent a 4 wheel drive camper.
Rent a 4×4 camper.

All of the above affects the way you feel about your campervan. It is your home for the duration of your rental. Hundreds of thousands of people every year rent a motorhome. Each have different criteria that make it the perfect one for them.  Consider how you want to live when you rent and how much you want to pay. This may determine how long you can hire a vehicle for.  If you are living out of a hi-top for three months – and people do – does it have enough space for you to stand up in or lay around and read?

Relax. You are on holiday.

Let us know if there is anything else you would consider when renting a campervan.  Ask us…its our job to help.

Happy holidays! 🙂

Are we allowed to travel into Mexico?
Yes in most cases you can but there is additional insurance required. There are sometimes restrictions to travelling to Mexico and we can advise you of this at the time of booking.

Can I tow my car or boat behind the motorhome?
No, this is not possible.

Is it possible to travel in the winter in the colder areas?
Yes this is possible but the van will be winterised so there is no water facilities in the vehicle.

How can I learn to operate the components on the motorhome?

What happens if the vehicle I reserved is unavailable?

What about a TV and DVD or CD player?
These are available in some motorhomes and camper vans as optional extras and charges are added.

What type of luggage to use?
We suggest bringing soft collapsible luggage with you as this is more easily storable.

How about young children travelling in a Camper van ?
Most 4 or 6 berth campervans and Motor homes have seat belts to accommodate child restraints. Please let us know the age of your children if any are travelling with you so we can recommend the best option for you.

We hope the above answers some of your questions you may have when you hire a campervan. If we have missed anything, please let us know and we will add it to our list. Don’t forget we are always here to help and advise. info@campervans.com Free phone in UK 0800 917 4347 Intl ph: +441 351 332
