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