Hiring a Camper Van
Camper van hire is not as popular as car and van hire although there is still a healthy market and many areas of the UK do have camper van supplier’s close by. Using the internet as a method of searching for hire firms in the local area is the best option. Using a search engine will easily lead you to companies in the local vicinity. Van hire brokers and comparison websites are also a good option for finding the best prices available although only the companies with online booking facilities will be included in the list.
As you can imagine camper van hire is popular during the summer months and booking during this time should be done as far in advance as possible. You should have all of your travel plans to hand when booking to ensure that you get the correct sized van, it is also wise, where possible to have a set of alternative travel dates if your first preference is unavailable.
Quieter times of the year such as winter months and school term time can often are a good time to book and may also lead to a discount on a weekend or midweek hire. Although winter time in the UK is not ideal for holidaying some companies allow their camper vans to travel into Europe at no extra cost.
Unlike car and van hire, camper van hire cannot be hired for one day unless it is for a wedding party. The minimum period of hire is generally a weekend or in some cases a week.
Inclusive costs when hiring
Almost all camper vans will be hired on a self-drive basis and your booking will need to include insurance and breakdown cover. Some companies will try to charge these as extras, both the insurance and breakdown cover should be included in the original price with no extra cost; European breakdown cover will be needed for European travel.
