Our classic VW camper vans are available for self drive hire from our base in Angus, Scotland. They are fully refurbished, serviced, insulated and equipped with all kitchen & camping necessities (See detailed campervan equipment list below) all ready for your adventure to the many beautiful areas of Scotland.
We are based near Arbroath on the East coast of Scotland, giving you a great starting point for your campervan road trip whether it be north to the stunning beaches of the Moray Coast & along to Loch Ness or through Scotland’s beautiful Cairngorms National Park to hit the start of the North Coast 500 route; then there is always the option of island hopping over to the breath taking Outer Hebrides. We can help with as much or as little of the route planning as you wish and we have plenty of books and maps to help you with that.
For details and photos of each campervan check out Our Vehicles.
We have fully equipped your VW van, so that your holiday starts the moment you turn the key. Your campervan will be equipped with everything you need from a corkscrew to washing up liquid. Bed linen & towels can be hired at an extra cost, but you may prefer to bring your own (please see Extras page for details).
Your van will be fully serviced and checked prior to your trip and we will spend time on collection showing you the ropes in great detail. Each van has all its electrics and gas certified annually.
** Moomin will be converted to a wedding vehicle in October 2017 and will no longer be available for self drive hire from then.
We have a list of add on extras for you to choose from. For a bit of extra space or shelter from the elements you may want to add a drive away awning that easily attaches & detaches from the side of the van; or possibly spoil yourselves with one of our luxury hampers. If you don’t find the option you are looking for, please get in touch with us as we may be able to help.
When do I collect the VW campervan & where from?
Campervans are collected from just outside Arbroath, in Angus. On arrival, we will complete your paperwork and introduce you to your camper. We can also store your car here for the duration of your hire. Your van needs to be returned to the same location at the end of the hire. If you are planning to use public transport to reach us, please click here for more details.
You can hire one of our Campervans for a Week, a Midweek Break or a Weekend Break. We can sometimes offer a little more flexibility in low season. Do get in touch and we'll see what alternatives are possible.
Weekly hire: Monday 10am - Sunday 4pm or Friday 10am - Thursday 4pm
Midweek Break: Monday 10am - Thursday 4pm
Weekend Break: Friday 10am - Sunday 4pm
You can drive one of our classic camper vans if you are between 23 years old and 75 years old & have held your license for more than 2 years with no more than 2 convictions, maximum 3 points per conviction. If you are keen to hire and don’t fall into this age bracket or are unsure on whether you are eligible, do get in touch and we'll see what we can do.
There is a non-refundable booking deposit of £150, receipt of which confirms the dates of your booking. We can take payment via bank transfer, by phone or online through our invoice system (with a credit or debit card). The balance for your booking is due 6 weeks before the hire period commences. If you book within six weeks of your departure date, the full balance will be payable at the time of booking.
A £500 security deposit is held during the hire period and is refundable on the safe return of the vehicle and its contents, in full compliance with our terms & conditions. This is payable by credit or debit card or bank transfer.
We have compiled a detailed manual for your van and all equipment, as well as checklists to help you should you be so excited on collection of your van that all the information proves too much to take in. We are always on the other end of the phone as well.
If you wish to do a shop online for delivery to our address please feel free to do so. Our full address will be provided in your booking confirmation and we are happy to pack the items into the camper ready and waiting.
Don’t forget to check out our specialty hampers on the Extras page for an extra treat; you are on holiday after all.
