First time Camper Van Hire North West, UK.

This is my first time hiring a Camper Van and I am struggling. I have spent hours surfing the net for reputable companies that are backed up by reviews. I am looking for a four to six berth van for a family for a one week holiday. I would prefer that the pick up be close to Heysham Port although I realise this may not be possible.

So far I have come across Southlakes motorhome hire in Barrow in Furness which should good but a little too far out the way as we will be traveling south. They gave me a good quote though.

A company called Freedom but quite expensive.

Northwestern Caravans Ltd but they aren't taking 2016 bookings till Feb 2016.

Not liking the idea of the Motorhome company as third party vans and have seen warnings about huge deposits and asking for more money.

Please help

Hi, try just go motorhomers. Been to Peterborough landrover show and the motorhome next to us was hired from them. It was lovely and they replace them when they are two years old.

We hired from a company called Hireahymer do not go to them. We had problems from start to finish, from wrong vehicle, unclean, unprepared to problem gears, worn brakes and unrechargeable electrics.
Owner Peter was rude & unproffesional & taken excess money from us too!!
