Can I rent a VW campervan?

The VW California camper is a favourite for campervan holidays and is offered for rent by several UK brands. Use our search tool to check availability and prices across multiple companies.

In general, vintage VW campervans are not offered by the major motorhome hire providers. However, they may be available from specialised suppliers.

Is wild camping permitted in Scotland?

Although wild camping is largely permitted in Scotland thanks to the Scottish Outdoor Access Code, these rights and rules do not apply to motor vehicles, and different restrictions apply when travelling in a campervan.

If you wish to stay in an area, permission must first be obtained from the landowner. In addition, the Road Traffic Act 1988 states that you may only drive a vehicle off-road for the purpose of parking within 15 yards of a public road.

There are, however, areas throughout Scotland designated for motorhomes, and certain communities may be more accommodating than others. Check with a local information centre to find out if any local restrictions apply or if there are areas nearby where you can park up for a night.

Are one-way campervan rentals available?

Yes, a large number of rental companies allow one-way rentals. Our comparison tool will automatically factor in any additional fees and show you which vehicles are available on your preferred route.

Can I bring my pet with me when renting a campervan?

Yes, some campervan companies in the UK are pet-friendly. These include McRent, Camper Rental UK, Just Go, Apollo, Bunk Campers, Rent Easy, Easy Campervan Hire and Rockin Vans.

Spaceships and AUK Motorhome Hire do not allow pets in their vehicles.

With all the companies that permit pets, approval must be obtained prior to your rental. A service fee will also be charged.

It is your responsibility to ensure the cleanliness of the vehicle, and you will be liable for any damages caused as a result of bringing a pet on board.

You are also responsible for the safe transport of any domestic animals according to local regulations as well as for compliance with any entry restrictions and vaccinations.

Is unlimited mileage included in my campervan rental?

Yes, unlimited miles (kilometres) are generally included for standard vehicle rentals in the UK. The comparison tool will show you whether your preferred vehicle has unlimited or restricted miles.

Can the campervan be fitted with a bike rack?

Yes, many companies allow a bike rack to be fitted to the vehicle. Some companies, such as Apollo and Bunk Campers, even include this in the standard rental rate.

Please note that bike racks are not available with all makes and models, and usually must be reserved in advance.

What kind of licence do I need to drive a campervan in the UK?

All drivers must have a current and full driver’s licence to hire a vehicle. If your licence is from the UK, it must entitle you to drive a category B vehicle up to 3,500 kg. If you have demerit points on your licence or any convictions, extra fees or restrictions may apply.

Foreign licences are acceptable if they are in English or are accompanied by an accredited English translation. Otherwise, an International Driving Permit (IDP) is required.

Can I rent a campervan in the UK if I’m under 21?

Most campervan rental companies in the UK require the driver to be 21 years of age or older. In addition, you must have held your licence for a specific period of time (generally 2–5 years). Certain vehicles may be restricted for those under the age of 25.

Enter the driver’s age into our search tool and we will filter available vehicles to match.

Drivers need to hold a full licence, and additional insurance for young drivers may also be required.

Note: policies vary from supplier to supplier. Always check the T&Cs for your rental.
