How long can I hire the campervan for?
We offer weekday and weekend bookings, however our preferred rental period is Saturday to Saturday and in high season we might not be able to provide shorter bookings. Longer bookings are available, for requests along this line please contact us
How many people can I take in the van?
The van can carry up to 4 people. Along with the driver seat there is a passenger seat and an amply proportioned rear seat that is fitted with two 3 point seat belts. If you have younger children or toddlers the rear seats can therefore be fitted with booster seats or baby seats as required.
In terms of sleeping, the rear seat folds down quickly and easily into a comfortable double bed. For an additional surcharge of £35 you can opt for the quick-erect drive away awning which comes with a clip-in inner tent that can easily accommodate another two adults or children. If you don’t want to use the awning, most campsites will allow you to erect a small to medium stand-alone tent within the cost of your camper van pitch.
Is the campervan easy to drive?
Yes, all the driving controls are the same as a car and it’s a short wheel base van, not much bigger than a people carrier, so is easy to drive, turn and park anywhere.
Do I need a special licence to drive this campervan?
No. Just a full valid UK/EU driving licence. We’ll ask you about this when you book to make sure it’s all okay.
If you have an international drivers licence, please give us a call and we’ll check with our insurers that you will be covered.
I’ve got points on my licence, can I still hire from you?
Yes, provided you have not had your driving licence endorsed or suspended or significant penalty points imposed. Parking and not more than two speeding offences in the past 3 years may be ignored. “Spent” convictions, covered by the Rehabilitation of Offenders Act 1974 may be disregarded. We cannot hire to you if have been involved in more than one accident during the past 3 years. For full licence requirements, please see the Ts & Cs
Can I use child car seats in the Campervan?
Yes, the rear seats have two seat belts which can fit up to two child car seats
What else do I need to know about the van?
