Travelling by motorhome

Travelling by motorhome

Let your holiday run free by getting your own hotel on wheels.

Scotland and Wales. Maybe you like in the UK already, in which case, you do not have far to travel before you can get behind the wheel of a motorhome. If you’re travelling to the UK from overseas then you have a whole host of options. Flying into the UK is easy and there are so many budget airlines today that securing a cheap deal is easier than ever before. Watch out for those nasty extra charges though. Some airlines, without naming names, add on lots of extra charges for baggage and insurance which may not always be obvious when you make an online booking. See

Make sure you read all information clearly. As a rule: if it’s not legit, don’t double-click!  Motorhome hire makes it easy for you to travel light: everything is included in the motorhome for you already. All cutlery, crockery and cooking equipment (just think about the three c’s!) are included as standard with all vehicles. Whether it’s a quick sandwich or an elaborate meal, you will not even need to bring a tin opener with you.

Bedding and towels can also be provided, for a small cost that covers the laundering of these items once you have vacated the motorhome. Would you consider taking your own bedding to a hotel? No! Although, at times, bringing your favourite pillow can be a blessing. But as a general rule, bedding and towels has come to be expected in hotels.

UK residents can save a little extra cash by bringing their own bedding to the motorhome hire. Overseas customers can also save cash on baggage charges by hiring bedding and towel packs upon arrival. It’s best to request these items in advance to ensure there are supplies ready for you when it comes to beginning your vacation.
If you’re taking a motorhome hire holiday in the summer, you will need to pack some summer essentials. If you’re travelling to the UK from overseas, you can still travel light and buy your toiletries and other items when you arrive.

UK supermarkets usually offer some of the best deals so you can get your sun cream when you go for your first motorhome hire shop. It’s usually easy to park in a supermarket car park; these areas are often large and outside major towns and cities, making them accessible to motorhomes that are far larger than standard cars.

Get a passenger to help you park, especially if you need to reverse. Taking the time to get to know how a motorhome needs to be driven will make all the difference and allow for you to have a hassle-free and enjoyable motorhome hire holiday.
