Hiring a vehicle

Hiring a caravan or motorhome is a great way to work out whether the touring lifestyle is right for you and which layout would best meet your needs, before you make a purchase.

If you're in the market for a new towcar, hiring the type of car you've got your eye on might also be a great way to see how it fares when coupled with your outfit.

Caravan hire

If your caravan is off the road for repair and you're in need of a holiday, or perhaps you’re new to caravanning and want to try the lifestyle before buying your first tourer, renting a caravan could be the perfect solution.

The cost of hiring a caravan varies so widely, but there are some helpful price comparison websites available online to give you an idea of some likely charges.

Top tip:

Make sure you check before hiring that the caravan can safely be towed by your car. We've got plenty of information to help you with outfit matching - find out more.

Motorhome hire

Buying a motorhome – even a second-hand model – is an expensive undertaking, especially if you decide the lifestyle isn’t for you. What’s more, a lot of people rush into the purchase of their first motorhome, only to discover the layout isn’t suitable for their needs.

In both cases, a forced sale just a few months after buying is likely to lose them a considerable sum of money. But there is a way to ‘try before you buy.’ Simply hire a motorhome for a week or so to see for yourself if the lifestyle is for you.

Some dealer-based hire outfits may even refund part of the cost of the rental if you subsequently decide to buy a motorhome from them.

How much?

Hire charges start at around £500 per week in low season, but increase significantly during peak holiday season, when many rental outfits focus on inbound overseas customers.

The quoted price may or may not include VAT, unlimited mileage, insurance, gas, or a breakdown recovery service, so shop around for the best deal, and read the conditions of hire carefully.

Information

Charges are usually for use in the country of hire only, and those going outside that country can expect to pay more. 

Hire charges are often payable in advance, and some companies require a substantial deposit, which is refundable on the return of the (undamaged) motorhome.
