Motorhome Hire - Essential Guide

Here's an easy step-by-step guide to planning your stress-free motorhome holiday!

1.) Plan ahead

Motorhomes and campervans tend to get booked way in advance and are very popular during school holidays. So if you can plan your trip in advance, secure your hire vehicle early to avoid disappointment. For quotes, questions and bookings call us on 01803 520494 or email us at Once you’re happy with your dates and vehicle choice all you need to do is pay the £150 booking deposit which will secure your booking. The balance for the hire is paid 6 weeks before your booking and the deposit is paid on the day you collect.

2.) Destination

There is a huge selection of great destinations all across the UK and Europe to choose from. Whether you’re going to visit one site or your planning a trip around Europe we recommend you book your campsite in advance to avoid disappointment (especially in high season). Sites typically range in price between £10 - £35/night depending on the facilities the season.

3.) Get packing

Your hire vehicle with be equipped with everything you need to get you off to a great start plus any optional extras you have requested. All you need to remember are the essentials – bedding, towels and your clothes! If you are going to be travelling to the EU you will also need to remember your passport, it’s also a good idea to keep some change on you for the toll roads.

4.) Hit the road!

Don’t forget to bring all your documentation when you collect your motorhome hire or campervan hire from our depot next to Paignton Railway Station. You can pick up any time between 2pm and 5:30pm (unless other arrangements have been made). We can also provide free, secure off-road parking for your vehicle while you're away. After we have completed the paperwork side in the office, one of our friendly staff will take you through the checkout procedure, demonstrate all of the features and answer any questions you may have before you set off (checkout will take around 45 – 60 minutes). Then all that's left to do is hit the road and enjoy your holiday!

Why chose a motorhome holiday?

Here are just a few reasons why a motorhome holiday is better: Being on the open road; freedom (home is where you park it!); escape, feels more like travelling; constantly shifting the horizon; chance to get off the beaten track; adventure yet comfort in the outdoors – like luxurious camping; value for money and great fun – for one price you get transport, kitchen, dining area and accommodation, all in one neat package! Maybe daunting thought of driving one but after a few minutes most people will love the experience of driving with up-high views and this all adds to the memorable experience; brings you into closer contact with both the scenery and the locals you meet on the road; family-friendly – ideal for family bonding and time together; allows for connection and reconnection with family, country and locals; real home from homes – cosy and quickly warm up if needed, with showers, toilet, hot water, oven and cooker, full-size fridge, dining space, lounge area etc – things have vastly improved in their design in the past few years – now with all mod cons on board and more spacious than you might imagine; dog (and cat!) friendly; much easier to pack for a break than flying and no queues or tedious waits in airports as well as a much more comfy and fun way to travel.
