Hire & Driver Requirements
Our hire is subject to insurance company approval. We will insure any driver between the ages of 23 and 75 with a valid driving licence. You must have at least two years driving experience and have no endorsements and traffic convictions, except minor speeding offences, in the past 5 years. On pick up day, we’ll need copies of the drivers’ licenses – both paper and license card – and two proofs of addresses.
Unusually, our camper van hire comes with complimentary insurance for two drivers, allowing you to split the driving along those windy rural roads, and you’ll also have access to roadside assistance should the need arise. Before your holiday, we’ll send you a complete driving manual for the camper van and there’s unlimited mileage with our hire too, so you can drive as far as your heart desires (within specified country borders and booking dates, of course!).
Deposit & Payments
In order to book you’ll need to pay a deposit of £200, or 25% of the booking, whichever is higher. This deposit is refundable up to 8 weeks prior to your pick up day and you’ll be asked for the full balance 30 days prior to your pick up date. There is no refund if you cancel within 30 days of your pick up date.
We’ll also take a security deposit of £500 which is equal to the excess on our insurance policy. The deposit will only be taken from your card should you damage the van or equipment, but we know you’ll take great care of it. If you do not have a credit card you can pay the deposit by bank transfer – just let us know and we’ll give you all the details.
Pick Up & Drop Off
On the first day of your holiday, you can collect the campervan at any time from 12 noon, although the pick up time can be sometimes be arranged earlier with prior notice. When you return back in the city for your drop off date, the campervan should be back by 11 am.
When it comes to leaving behind your regular mode of transport, you can leave your car at our base, with on street parking space available. Leaving your car is done at your own risk, and you are welcome to leave luggage with us but again, it is your responsibility. We try to ensure that the pick up and drop off days are as straightforward as possible, so you can make the most of your travels.
