Pack up, get on board and live the van life in your rented camper van or motorhome
If you want a holiday that offers total freedom, flexibility and the chance to get up close and personal with some of the loveliest places on the planet, then the ideal solution is to hire a camper van or motorhome through campervanhire.com
We’ve listed the top reasons below as to why living the van life is an unforgettable experience and gives you the chance to enjoy a different holiday every year.
No ‘one size fits all’ if you want to experience the van life
At campervanhire.com, we’ll have the perfect solution for your van life experience. From smaller camper vans to large motorhomes, you’ll have plenty of choice. You might be travelling as a cosy twosome or best buddies and want an iconic VW camper van that’s perfect for a surfing or hiking break or you might be travelling with your family and need something much larger that gives you all the mod cons and little luxuries.
Heading off for a festival or outdoor based event? No problem, you’ll be able to hire the perfect motorhome that provides a great base to have fun, be cosy at night and lock up your belongings whilst you’re out and about.
Van life = freedom to explore
Living the van life means you can go wherever you want, for as long as you want. You can base yourself at a camper van site and make the most of all the amenities or discover hidden away places. You can live the van life in Europe, the USA, Australia or New Zealand. There’s a world of adventures out there and if you want to immerse yourself in the great outdoors, explore new places and yet still have a cosy ‘home from home’, it takes a lot to beat the van life in a camper van or motorhome.
No set times or places with van life
Unlike staying in a hotel, life in a camper van or motorhome means that you take things at your own pace. You won’t have any rigid checking in and out times and there are no rules about breakfast lunch or dinner. You can eat where, what and whenever you like, without worrying about the hotel restaurant opening hours, whether they have certain types of food specific to your preferred diet or having to eat by a certain time.
Neither are you restricted by having to go back to a hotel bedroom in one location. You can move around as much as you like – and even decide not to stick to your planned schedule, if you find a spot you really love. You are managing your own budget, so you get to decide how much you want to spend on fuel and where you want to go.
Changeable weather doesn’t matter when you’re living the van life
Even if the weather is unpredictable, with van life you can still get out and about. You won’t be stuck in a hotel bedroom or lounge when it’s raining. Drive to a great spot and head off for a good walk. If it starts to rain, you have somewhere cosy and dry to come back to – or you can just stay in the van enjoying the view and a cup of tea in comfort.
Living the vanlife is great for kids
Kids love to explore but often hate long journeys, especially if they are in the cramped environment of a car. Living the van life means that in a family-sized recreational vehicle they can spread out in the back, with games and activities whilst moving from place to place. Campsites often have special facilities for children, such as play areas, swimming pools and games rooms but kids also love being on an adventure and setting up in less organised surroundings.
Cooking becomes fun too and whether you are cooking on your van stove or setting up a barbecue, everyone can help. You can all choose fresh produce at a local market, or go fishing to catch supper. There are usually family attractions and activities to visit along the way, so there are always plenty of options to keep the kids busy and entertained.
Van life doesn’t mean you have to splash out the cash
The best thing of all is that you don’t need to take on the expense of buying a camper van or other recreational vehicle in order to live the van life. Hiring through campervanhire.com means that you have your ‘home from home’ just for your holiday – and you get to choose what your budget can allow.
There is no big outlay for purchasing your motorhome, no depreciation of your precious asset, no expensive maintenance bills and you won’t have to find a big enough space to park it when you get home. If you hire, then you can have a different motorhome each time, depending on how many of you want to join the holiday. So two of you can go on one holiday and six on the next! You can find the van you need through our search page.
