Collecting your camper motorhome

Collection is between 2pm – 4pm (Unless you have purchased an early collection) The paperwork usually takes no more than 20 minutes to complete, then we take as long as you need to show you around the vehicle, usually around 45 minutes. You need to bring with you the following:

Returning your camper motorhome?

Unless you have purchased a late return the return time is between 9am – 11am. If you are returning your vehicle to a non-depot location (airport, train station etc) you need to confirm an exact time, so we can make sure your driver is there waiting for you.


We are closed on Sundays, however please get in touch if you have any questions regarding Sundays, we can often accommodate returns of vehicles.
