Motorhome hire (August)

Friend of mine is looking to hire a motorhome for the August bank holiday.

He is based in Greater Manchester. Has anybody got any reccomendations?

Many thanks

Paul

Where is he planning on going? It may be easier and cheaper to rent closer to the intended touring area. for example if heading to devon & cornwall. It would be cheaper to drive/fly down and rent down there spending more time in that area.

If he only wants it for the Bank Holiday weekend he may have a problem with anything other than a very last minute booking.

Few hire companies will be willing to screw up a possible 1/2/3 week school holidays hire for the sake of a 3/4/5 day one.

Some companies have 2 week minimum hires in August.

Tel : 07837 053 627

Coreen should answer.

We booked a week late last year for hire in April 2014 and last week we cancelled cus we just bought our own and we got a full refund no problem at all.

We have hired from them on 3 occasions great to deal with.

Hire

Hi
He is going to Cumbria. Don't think he would have an issue with a weeks hire.

Thanks for the comments have passed the number on

Cheers

Often the deposit on a hire is quite high, but you can now get insurance to cover the deposit quite cheaply - check out car hire insurance on martins money saving website
