Terms and Conditions
A helpful hint: if possible, try not to start your holiday on the same day you collect your vehicle. We need to show you exactly how to get the most out of your motor home, and this may take some time. It is essential that the hirer should be given a thorough introduction to the rental vehicle by our experts before the journey begins. Since the times for collecting and returning motor homes are carefully planned, please return your motor home on time. A penalty of £25- per hour is payable for time between expiry of the rent agreement and the return of your vehicle (maximum penalty is daily rental charge). Should the late return of the vehicle make us liable for extra costs (e.g. compensation of the next hirer), we reserve the right to pass on these costs to you.
Bed linen/ kitchen equipment :-
Please bring your own bed linen, blankets, pillows, towels. For people travelling overseas we can make arrangements at a small charge.
Equipment such as camping table and chairs and BBQ is included please see inventory list. Your motor home will include all crockery and other kitchen equipment.
Replacement vehicles :-
If your chosen motor home is not available, we reserve the right to offer you another vehicle in its place. This may be of similar size to the vehicle requested or larger, and will be similarly equipped. In this event, the hirer is not liable for higher rental charges. If a smaller vehicle is offered and accepted, the difference in charges will be refunded.
