Our vans are covered for trips in the UK and Europe, with unlimited mileage and breakdown cover. Our campervans are regularly serviced and we are always on hand if you run into any issues.

Due to the nature of hiring a campervan, there are just a few regulations that need to be met to ensure our insurance covers you and your trip. Please see below the terms and criteria:

1. Security deposit

Our insurers request that we receive an additional £500 refundable security deposit before the hire period. This will be used in the event of making a claim or if any damages occur during the hire period. It will be refunded to you within seven days of returning the van. This deposit is mandatory as you will not be covered by our insurance if you fail to make this payment. Our insurance policy will cover unlimited miles in the UK and Europe.

2. Documentation

Please note that all drivers must bring the following documentation when you pick up the van:

a) Full driving licence (photo card)

b) 2 of the following proofs of address (Council Tax Bill, Bank Statement, Credit Card Bill or Mortgage Statement) not more than 3 months old.

3. Driver criteria

a) All drivers must have held a full UK licence for a minimum of 24 months

b) For non-UK driving licence holders, please let us know as we need to inform our insurers.

b) All drivers must be aged between 21-79

c) Drivers can have up to 6 points on their licence (providing they are two minor offences)

d) Drivers can have no more than one fault or non-fault claim within a 5-year period

4. Compulsory licence checks

Our insurers require that we check the licence entitlement and penalty points for all UK licenced drivers using the DVLA's online service. Please share with us your driving licence number and licence check code seven days in advance of your hire period.

How to obtain your check code:

a) Use the DVLA check website (here) to view details of your own licence at home. When you see the results page, you will find a tab on the right-hand side of the page titled "Share your licence information".

b) Click on this tab to create a one-time use security code - eg. HFjfA8Dc (please be aware this code only works once, and then is unusable again).

Note: Unless you have received a confirmation email from us you MUST bring your full details including national insurance number when you come to pick up the vehicle.

Do get in touch if you have any questions.
