The balance can be paid on pick up by way of cash. You will need to bring your Licence and ID photo Licence will do for this or a passport.,
Q ) What if we need to cancel?
You can cancel, but you will lose your £125 deposit.
Q ) What happens if we have an accident or breakdown?
Breakdown cover is included with the contact phone numbers in the motorhome along with our accident procedure.
Q ) Do we need to be plugged into electric?
We would always recommend you use campsites or facilities that offer electric hook up for you to plug in to, this will allow for your 240 volts sockets to work, as well as maintaining the battery output and allows for use of fridge and heating off the electric instead of using your gas, especially in the winter or colder months. You can, obviously use the motorhome without hook up, but you then loose the use of the power sockets and will restrict other electrical output such as the keeping the batteries charged, but to help with this a little we have fitted solar panels to all our Motorhomes, but you will still need to be conservative with consumption when wild camping.
The Motorhomes are fitted with an on-board water tank, this will last for around 2-3 days the gauges on board will allow you to see how much water is left and when the tank needs filling, there is also a grey water tank and this will need emptying when you fill up with fresh water, you will also need to fill up the separate water tank (on the Elddis) for the toilet flush water.
Q ) Wild camping or sites?
Taking into consideration safety and comfort and in addition to the fact that the UK does not provide dedicated motorhome stopover areas, we would suggest you stick to campsites for your travels or festival camp grounds for those of you attending festivals.
If you are travelling to Europe then this is quite different in many countries as they do provide and encourage the use of their dedicated motorhome stopover areas, these are called Aires in France,
and Stellplatz in Germany, Belgium and Italy have their own system in place, all these are areas exclusively for Motorhomes, and they are located in numerous towns, villages, beaches, lakes etc, they are usually low cost or even free and most provide water, waste drains & toilet emptying points. These rest areas are ideal for stopovers or for a day or so. Some even have electric hook up. We strongly advise against stopping on any motorway service area overnight, either in the UK or Europe, as these areas are notorious for motorhome break-ins.
Q ) Is There a Set Time for Collection and Return?
Collection time is usually from 9 am; drop off time is usually 2.30 pm.
We can however be flexible subject to availability wherever possible and as long as we know well in advance. There is normally a charge for this service and unauthorized late returns do face penalties.
Q ) Is there a Railway Station or Airport Close to you?
Yes, we are just a 20 minute walk away from Prescot Railway Station, and half an hour by taxi from Lime Street, Liverpool. We are 20 minutes from John Lennon Airport and 45 minutes from Manchester Airport.
Q ) Can we take Bicycles?
Yes, there are bike racks fitted to 3 of our Motorhomes that will carry 2, 3, and 4 bikes, so you will need to ask if any of these vehicles are available. There is no extra charge.
Q ) Are they available to hire all year?
Yes, you can hire all year round, but we would always advise that you go away prepared and stay on campsites with electric hook up for your comfort and book your sites in advance to allow for those sites that close for the winter.
Q ) Is the Motorhome easy to use, and how do you know how things work?
We will give you a handover to explain how everything works, which will take about an hour, so allow this time when you pick up. The controls are easy to get used to and the Motorhome to drive is a great experience, being high up, you are able to see a lot more than when driving a car, just take your time at first and you will soon get used to it.
Q ) Do we sell Motorhomes?
Yes, we have past hire vans for sale usually in the Autumn/Winter, ring for details, all our Motorhomes are well looked after and maintained to a high standard.
