UK Campervan and Motorhome Hire. Find Out all the costs before you book. Simple.

UNITED KINGDOM CAMPERVAN AND MOTORHOME HIRE

Where To Start?

UK Campervan and Motorhome Hire. Find out all the costs before you book. Simples.

When you are looking for cheap campervan hire in the UK you need to choose the right size of camper that suits you before you start looking at prices.

 

First Choose the Size of Campervan or Motorhome.

Remember that smaller and older campers are cheaper.

 

Make sure there is enough beds and seat-belts for everyone and you can’t go wrong. It’s also a good idea to check out the bed layout too.

 

Some campers have just one large double bed. The larger motorhomes have a mixture of single beds, double and bunk beds. Check out the pictures above and you will see the day and night-time layouts of every camper.

 

We have listed above the range and types of campervans and motorhomes by the number of beds in each one. Now you know if it is a small sleeper car, a VW pop-top or a larger motorhome.

 

Now get going on getting the best price for your rental.

 

The newest vehicles are a better quality. Rental motorhomes and campervans do high mileage so the newer ones are in better condition but more expensive.

 

If you don’t mind a camper that is a little tired around the edges but a great rate, then you will find it on our site.

 

You won’t find all the campervan and motorhome rental companies on our booking engine and there are good reasons for this.

 

Here are some of them:

 

    1. They are too small. So in the event a replacement vehicle is needed…there isn’t one. The companies on our booking engine are well established with good back up services.

 

    1. Past customers don’t recommend them. If a company consistenly gets poor feedback then we will not include them on our website.

 

  1. They are not in the right place. Most of our customers start with a London to London rental. There is a large choice of campers and several airports to fly in and out of. Collect from Gatwick, Heathrow and Luton airports.

 

You will find all the big names on our site. McRent – a German company with depots in London and Edinburgh.

 

Just Go – a long established campervan rental company who are now working with THL a giant in the industry.

 

Bunk Campers so popular throughout the UK and Europe

 

Spaceships an Australian company who offer great value for money both in the UK, Europe and Australian and New Zealand. They offer one-way trips between the UK and Europe including Ireland.

 

Both Spaceships and Bunk Campers allow vehicles to be rented to people under 25 years old too.

 

These well known brands are supported by smaller companies such as Rockin Vans,Getaway, Touring Cars, Easi Campers,Rent Easy and many others.

 

We thrive on repeat business so for rental companies to be listed on our site they have had to go through our selection process and that is why not every company is here.

 

It is hard to choose between companies and vehicles. So, we are here to help. We are on the end of a phone or will respond to emails 7 days a week, 24 hours a day.

 

Our website has all the finer points too.

Check out the extras you can hire. Check out the insurance options too.

 

Take the motorhome to Europe on the ferry or the Euro-tunnel. The insurance cover that we offer will cover you for most of Europe. You will also be covered for breakdown in Europe too.

 

One-way hires are popular with the UK. A London to Edinburgh trip saves on back-tracking. Fly into Scotland and out of London or vice-versa. Collect in Dublin and return to Edinburgh. Check out your options.

 

Save money and take your own bedding. Some companies that we work with offer free parking at the depot while you rent.

 

Getting to the depot:

 

When you go through the booking process you will find out many things that are involved with renting a camper.

 

You make your own selections according to your own special needs.

 

Stock up the car before you collect your camper with all the essentials like salt and pepper, cooking oil, butter, milk, cheese, eggs etc

Take your own bedding and save on renting it.

 

Although all the options are listed you can bring your own. Outdoor tables and chairs for example.

If you are arriving from overseas and you don’t want to hire any of the extras listed, then buy them in a local store and leave them behind at the end of your rental. It is sometime cheaper to do this than pay to rent the tables and chairs or umbrella,

 

The extras include bikes and bike racks. Baby seats and booster seats. Handy if you are arriving from outside the UK.

 

We make it simple and straightforward by including as much as we can in the daily rate so that you don’t have to make multiple choices and trying to find the best deal by comparing one vehicle with one set of extras and another with a different set.


Once rented then you can turn your thoughts to taking your family on holiday in the UK in a campervan is just a dream come true. Pile all the children in the back, start the music and you are on your way to one of the most memorable holidays ever.

 

Take turns into who chooses where to go that day. Check out the weather and change direction depending on what you want to do next.

 

If you are a family then sleeping arrangements will be one of the first decisions that has to be made. For the budget conscious then the classic VW California pop top easily sleeps 4. Two in the pop top and two below. Fully equipped with a kitchen and small fridge catering for all needs is easy. Park up next to a beach, in the middle of the moors or next to a special attraction. Fully self contained travelling with a family couldn’t be easier or more fun.

 

Up scale to a larger motorhome and add in the convenience of an onboard shower and wc to allow total freedom. The batteries will last about 3 days after being fully charged. The onboard fridge will keep things chilled and the vehicles are self contained so as long as you have filled the water tanks and the gas bottles are full then you can just disappear to your favourite spot anywhere in the UK.

 

For couples getting away for a romantic break is a must in a camper. Choose from the smaller 2-berths with a shower and wc and stock up for a few days and just go where the mood takes you. Free camp in Scotland, tour Ireland, set up in Wales. Take the surf board, pack bikes, walking boots and take the camera. You will be creating memories from day 1.

 

Groups of friends club together to rent a small sleeper car and head off to the beach surfing or make sure that they have a dry place to sleep at a festival or major event. Book well in advance for the Glastonbury or Isle of Wight festival. Formula One and Race meetings are popular too.

 

The cheaper sleeper cars are perfect for a really budget. holiday. There are depots thoughout the UK. The biggest and the area that offers the widest range of vehicles is London. Here you will find the companies with the widest range of vehicles such as Just Go, McRent and Spaceships. There are smaller companies such as Bunk Campers, Getaway, Rocking Vans.

 

There are depots right across the UK from Inverness, Aberdeen, Glasgow and Edinburgh in the north and Manchester, Leeds, Bristol, Birmingham, Cambridge, Liverpool, Luton and many others. If you don’t see the perfect camper for your road trip, change the point of pick up and see a different range. Many depots offer to look after your car at their depot.

 

The UK is also equipped with a huge range of campsites and free places to overnight.

 

If you need any help planning which vehicle to choose or just want a bit more info on how things work, give us a call or send an email and we will happily help you out to make this holiday the best!

Campervans.com – A Year In Review

Campervans.com is having an overhaul and you will be able to see the live site in the next couple of weeks.  We have worked hard to add new countries as more options to have a roadtrip adventure.  We have also added more cities to start your campervan holiday from.

More images and more specifications to show what vehicles are available to rent.  There are interior photographs of campervans and day and night time layout pictures so you can match the layout to who will be travelling.

The range of suppliers has also increased and some have disappeared as we have very strict guidelines as to who we add to our choice of campervan hire suppliers.

The insurance options are fully explained and the terms and conditions are up to date too.  We have also extended the office hours and the number of reservation staff so the phones get answered quickly.  However at busy times the answerphone message still kicks in.

The online booking engine is fantastic. Comparing prices, vehicles, and added options is very easy.

It starts in from their depot in London and takes in a route to Cornwall Visit Cornwall Tourist Board via Sussex Sussex Tourist Boardand back up through Devon.  Visit Devon tourist board.

From there is takes a route back up to Stone Henge Stonehenge.  They then suggest a trip to Wales Visit Wales and then up to the north of England to Hadrian’s Wall:

From there it is a drive down the west coast to East Anglia Visit East Anglia.  

There are campsites all across Britain and Bunk recommends the Caravan club sites.  Caravan club    I would also add Pitchup.com Pitchup.com too.
