Not just with motorhome hire, but before you enter and sort of contract to hire, you will need to read the company’s Terms and Conditions. In almost all circumstances the hire company will post or email them. So here are some key points to look out for.
Insurance and Breakdown Cover: Typically, fully comprehensive insurance applies to the main driver. Often a second driver can be added fairly cheaply, if so it is worth doing. This way you can share driving and if one driver suffers from something that makes it hard to drive (I fell off a mountain bike once and found it hard to steer a motorhome motorhome hire afterwards), the other can take over. Insurance Excess is typically £500-£1000, but if this scares you, ask about Collission Damage Waiver or CDW where you can voluntarily reduce the excess. Breakdown cover should be part of the main agreement and is often more if you are taking the motorhome abroad.
Deposits: Some companies are very strict about deposits, others just require that you pay by credit card or provide a returnable cheque. You need to ask.
Additional Charges: This depends on the individual company, companies such as Motorhome (0800 612 8719), typically offer unlimited mileage and extras such as DVD players, TVs and bike racks included. Other companies may charge you extra for these items. Most motorhome hire companies will insist that you bring the vehicle back with the correct amount of fuel in the tank and the toilet cassette empty to avoid further charges.
Driving Licenses & Documentation: It is your responsibility to make sure that you have the correct license for the vehicle you are hiring. In all motorhome hire companies there are upper and lower age limits and restrictions on health conditions that could effect your friving of the motorhome.

When you go on an extended out-of-town trip, you should consider getting a motorhome for hire. A motorhome makes your journey comfortable and convenient, especially when you plan to do some camping and some excursions during your trip. With motorhome hire, you do not need to find a place to stop over in order to attend to your personal needs. When you are traveling with children, a vehicle like this will have amenities that will keep them from getting bored and restless during the trip.
However, not all companies offering RV rentals have the same features and amenities. So, when you are considering hiring one, you need to make sure that the vehicle you will get has everything you need for your journey.
Comfort on the Road
Amongst the qualities that you should look at when you hire a camper van is whether or not it will guarantee a comfortable journey. One of the things you need to look at is the berths provided in the van. Berths refer to the number of sleeping places in the camper van. You should have one berth for each person coming with you on the trip, and you should check if the berths are adult-sized or sized for children. Double beds typically count as two berths, and there is the question of whether or not bedding is included in the rate you are going to pay for.
