Hiring a Motorhome or Campervan in Scotland

Hiring a motorhome or camper van

Hiring a motorhome or campervan is a fantastic way to spend you summer holidays this year. You’ll avoid the stress of international travel and won’t have to worry airports, booking Covid tests or reading up on new EU rules.

Whether you enjoy city breaks, days at the beach or sightseeing, you’re guaranteed to find something to keep the family entertained during a motorhome holiday in Scotland. You’ll be in charge of your own trip, so you can decide where you want to go, what route you want to take and how long you want to stay.

Motorhome hire is the perfect option for families that are new to touring. Purchasing your own caravan or camper is a big investment, so renting allows you to ‘try before you buy’! Here we list just some of the reasons we think hiring a motorhome or campervan is a great idea this summer. We also recommend trusted hire companies and suggest caravan parks to visit during your tour of Scotland!

Lower Costs of Travel

When hiring a motorhome or camper van, accommodation is cheaper than paying for transport and hotels. Being able to cook your own food also saves the cost of eating out all the time.

Hiring a motorhome or camper van vs Buying

If you don’t plan on using your motorhome or camper van often, or are only trying it out for the first time, hiring is a great option. Purchasing, if you’re not dedicated, could be expensive, when you factor in insurance costs, breakdown cover, road tax and storage. If you only want to take a trip once, hiring is perfect.

Costs of Repairs

When hiring a motorhome or camper van, they often come with breakdown cover and basic insurance. This means you can rest assured that you won’t face any large unexpected costs when you holiday.

Disconnect from Outside

Everyone says getting fresh air, going outdoors and taking a break from technology is great for the mind and body. A touring holiday allows you to do that, but often with the option of staying connected if you still wish.

Space and Style

Hiring a motorhome or camper van allows you to have your own space and stay away from large crowds. There are plenty of layout and style options to choose from, so you can pick the most suitable option for you – design your own layout and holiday exactly the way you want it.

Go with the Flow

Caravanning allows a lot of flexibility, especially in the shoulder months. There are no deadlines or to-do lists, if you choose – you can go wherever, whenever.

Where to hire?

Many companies offer the option of hiring a motorhome or camper van, such as Atlas Hire Drive or Go Boony, although there are no companies in particular that we recommend. Explore your options and do your research to ensure you choose the best model and terms.
