More Detail

Where can we go? Where can we camp?2022-03-22T08:32:53+00:00

You will start your hire with a full tank of fuel so that you are ready to hit the road. You have unlimited amount of milage that you can use, however there is a 20p charge for ever mile that is covered over 750 miles per week.

We recommend that you book camp sites in advance of your hire. This will give you the security of knowing that you are booked in somewhere that is safe, secure and has facilities that you can access. If you do this as you go then you run the risk of camping places being booked (especially in peak season).

You can opt to ‘wild camp’ in the van. This is exciting but can throw up a few issues of being moved on in the middle of the night and not having access to things such as toilets and fresh water. The van holds 30 litres of water but with eating drinking and showering, this can get used up fairly quickly.
