Five Reasons to Hire a Motorhome This Summer

The British public has had a love affair with the humble motorhome dating back decades. While during the eighties the popularity of cheap package holidays abroad meant interest in motorhomes was on the wane, in the noughties and beyond motorhomes are experiencing a resurgence. The typical holidaymaker today is more environmentally aware, more cost-conscious and wants to be in control of their holiday like never before. And the motorhome fits the profile on a number of counts:

1. Motorhomes offer unrivaled freedom

By combining comfortable accommodation with incredible mobility, the modern motorhome is a marvel of ingenious engineering and gives the 21st century holidaymaker that holy grail of modern travel – the freedom of the open road. There’s no better feeling than picking a point on a map, loading up the family and getting there under your own steam.

2. Motorhome hire is affordable

While top-of-the-range motorhomes can easily set you back over a £100k, hiring a motorhome can be done at a fraction of the price and without the extra costs involved in storing, maintaining and insuring a vehicle as an owner. Even if you are planning to buy, there’s no better way of trying out the motorhome of your dreams than first renting it and putting it through its paces.

3. Modern motorhomes are stylish and luxurious

It’s a misconception to think motorhome hire is equivalent to camping in the ‘roughing it’ category or holiday. Modern vehicles are stylish, luxurious and incredibly spacious, with all manner of mod cons including power showers, DVD players and integrated power units. Top end models are more ‘hotel suite’ than ‘bedsit’.

4. Motorhome manufacturers offer green alternatives

Holidaymakers are increasingly conscious of their impact on the environment and the good news is that motorhome manufacturers have taken great strides in recent years to lessen the carbon footprint of their vehicles. The trend is for motorhomes with fewer carbon emissions and better fuel economy than ever before.

5. Motorhomes can be hired conveniently online

Motorhome hire companies have kept pace with the development of internet technology and the good news for consumers is that there are vast resources online for comparing motorhomes and finding the best deal. Now you can shop around, do your research and make your booking all from the convenience of your desktop.
