How much does it cost toHire a motorhome?

So how much does it cost to hire a motorhome or campervan?

Not as much as you might think.

Of course, there are a number of factors which can affect the cost of a motorhome or campervan hire. Such as:

  • Model of motorhome/campervan
  • How long you intend to go for
  • What time of year you go away
  • If you’re taking a dog with you

Below is a table of average costs for the range of motorhomes we have available for hire on our fleet.

We do a minimum 4 night hire which comes with a mileage restriction of 500 miles. Any hires of a week or more comes with an Unlimited mileage allowance.

These standard prices are based on one driver with a clean licence, aged 25-75, travelling within the UK, and includes fully comprehensive vehicle insurance and breakdown cover.

Optional Extras

Our vehicles come extremely well equipped, with all manner of things included within the cost of the hire, but you may still want to add on a few extras such as a bike rack, a sat nav, or include a 2nd driver to the insurance.

You can find the exact cost for these on our Optional Extras page.

Pre-Authorisation

As with all motorhome companies, when collecting a motorhome we ask all our customers for a £1000 Pre-Authorisation on a debit or credit card.

This is to cover us against any damage or theft. Similar to what you would do in a hotel.

The money never actually leaves your account, but you will need to have at least that amount in there, as it holds it until a few days after you return the vehicle to us.

The length of time it takes for the hold to be lifted (usually 4-5 working days) varies depending on who you bank with.

Insurance Excess and CDW

On top of the hire price, you will also need to consider the insurance excess on the vehicle.

Standard excess across our whole fleet is £1000.

However, you have the option to reduce that excess down to £0 in the event of a collision, if you decide to take out our Collision Damage Waiver (CDW) policy. It costs £18 per day (£90 minimum/£252 maximum).

As well as reducing your excess in the event of a collision down to £0, it also reduces the Pre-Authorisation we put on your debit or credit card from £1000 to £500.

CDW doesn’t cover everything, so please take a look at our CDW page to see what the exceptions are.

Other costs to consider

Overnight stays

The cost of a pitch at a campsite can vary greatly. From £10 per night for a farmer’s field with limited facilities, to £45+ per night for a holiday resort with swimming pools, restaurants and other forms of entertainment on offer.

There are other cost effective alternatives to campsites, of course, such as wild camping and motorhome stopovers.

It’s always a good idea to do your research ahead of time and work out what you’re after. See our Campsite Guide to help with your planning.

Food & drink

How you eat is totally up to you. With a motorhome you have the option of cooking and eating all your meals within the vehicle, which can prove to be more cost effective approach than eating out every night.

All our motorhomes have a fridge onboard, allowing you to stock up on all your favourite treats!

Fuel

A big thing to think about is the fuel costs. When collecting from us the vehicle will be full of diesel, and we ask that you return it full.

Please note that fuel shortages will be charged for.

Tolls

What route are you taking? Depending on where you travel you may encounter toll roads, bridges, tunnels or congestion charges.

Plan ahead if you want to avoid, but if not, make sure you’re aware of how to pay.

Activities

Your plan may well be to escape from it all and do as little as possible and unwind whilst away, but if you do have days out in mind, and other fun activities, then these things will cost money.
