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.

Types of campervans and motorhomes. Advantages and Disadvantages:
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.
Upgrade 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.
