We offer a 100% full refund should Government prevent the use of Motorhomes due to Covid-19. This has been described by Government as ‘no non-essential travel allowed’.

If you fall ill yourself with Covid and cannot travel, this would be covered by your travel insurance and not us, and therefore we suggest you take out adequate travel insurance to cover this.

Our Covid Policy only covers travel in the UK and covers all the UK government policies. But we do not cover outside of UK with our policy. Travel outside the UK is subject to government guidelines, and is covered by our vehicle insurance, but not this COVID Policy.

To help reduce the spread of the virus, we will not be supplying Bedding & Towels regardless of whether this is stated on the website – please bring your own. We can assist with requests for bedding if you are visiting UK from abroad, as we appreciate bringing bedding from far away is not possible.

In the UK

Some of the best Road Trips can be during the winter Months, the UK has so many nice places to visit, and not just for the summer. Its cheaper to with discounts over the winter on all our Motorhomes, we offer 20% off everything, including our Add-Ons, the campsites are cheaper to !! There is less traffic on the roads and the campsites are more available and not so busy.

Its lovely being in the forests or a coastal location, wrapping up & going for a crisp winter morning walk. Then sitting in one of our Motorhomes with the TV on, roast in the oven, the central heating on, looking out of the window at the outside elements. Relaxing Snug times !!!

Beautiful stunning Wales is very popular in Winter, and so is Scotland. In Scotland you have the NC500 which is a pre-planned route taking you all round the best of the Scottish Coastline, very popular with Motorhomers. The lake district offers stunning trips and scenery, and great trips in the south such as the ‘New Forest’

And you don’t have to go too far to find a nice little getaway.  We are based in Sussex and have a great selection of local campsite. There is Sumner Ponds near Horsham, it has great fishing lakes, lovely walks, an on-site bar/restaurant, the most amazing shower block, a village shop and Pub. Lots to do locally and once on the campsite you could be anywhere your imagination takes you.

Our Location offers easy access to a wide selection of Ports to Europe, picking one of these ports, ‘Calais’, easy to get to with ferries or the Channel Tunnel. Within less than 2 hours drive of Calais there are some great places to visit: ‘Arras’ is a lovely town, packed with history, especially WW1, it features great town squares, cathedrals, tunnels, hundreds of restaurants & bars and great shopping. Nearby you have the famous battles fields of ‘Vimy Ridge’ and heart felt memorials to the lost soldiers. Really worth a visit to Arras & it has dedicated Motorhome parking right near the town centre with electric hook-up. Hard to get a booking during the summer, but available very easily during the Winter !!

Some other great destinations near Calais is the City of Lille, so much to do, a large city with great history, shopping and amazing Christmas Markets. For Coastal getaways there is the lovely seaside town of Le Touquet, miles and miles of Sandy beaches, a great golf course, Casino and a town packed with amazing shops, restaurants and bars.

Or how about arriving in Calais and travelling up to Belgium, within 2 hours you have the incredible town of ‘Bruges’, what a place this is, romantic, very old buildings, canels, markets, shopping, drinking, eating, castles, you name it, Bruges has it. And just as lovely is the Belguim city of Ghent, you can lose yourself for days in this stunning city. And if you like your WW1 history, this place is surrounded with battlefields and memorials, don’t miss the town of ‘Ypres’

More in Europe

The point of a Motorhome is that the world is at your disposal, well Europe anyway !! Destinations like Switzerland’s mountains, Italy’s Lake Garda, and Norways town of Bergen have always been top attractions, but some new up and coming places are currently very popular. Places like Croatia, Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary & Montenegro, offering many more un-touched tourist locations and cheaper prices to.

Winter Sun

Just because its raining in the UK doesn’t mean you cant get a tan !!! How about a little ‘Winter Sun’ with a trip to Spain or Portugal !! Lots of places to go, but great adventures on the journey down through France. And if you don’t fancy the driving down, Portsmouth Port is 90 minutes from our location, where you can get the ferry direct to ‘Bilbao’ Spain !!!

The initial expense of a motorhome whether it be a new or Used one is a massive expense for most pockets. Any Motorhome owner will tell you the value of a Motorhome only goes down. On top of this they are very well known for very high maintenance bills, plus the added bonus of Insurance, Tax & MOT.

Most Motorhomes sit on thier driveways for 11+ Months of the year. You also have the storage of it, and these days unfortunately the worry of it being stolen. Of course owning one is also nice and we all get quite attached to our Motorhomes, but being practical, Rental is a much cheaper and less hassle option for 2/3 trips a year.

All Hires of our motorised vehicles are subject to a ‘Insurance Excess Deposit’ The amount varies between each vehicle and is clearly shown on the link on booking page. This is done on the day of the hire. However the lessor (Roadtrip Rentals ltd) use your credit or debit card for pre-authorisation, and therefore do not actually take money from your account. The money will be held until satisfaction from lessor that none of our terms and conditions have been broken.

8.7 Roadtrip-Rentals Limited sometimes uses ‘DayInsure’ or other such like insurance companies as well as their own, this depends on the renter and the circumstances. By signing this agreement, you allow Roadtrip-Rentals Limited to book insurance for you on your behalf and you agree that Roadtrip-Rentals Limited have the permission to share your information which is required by the insurance company relating to this rental.

9. DEPOSIT:

9.1 The Renter agrees that the Deposit/Excess can be used for both insurance claims or all other deductions stated in the rental agreement

9.2 In the event of damage caused to the Motorhome ‘as well’ as an insurance claim made, the cost of the damage is taken out of the deposit first. Then any shortfall of the insurance excess is payable by the Renter/hirer.

The security deposit taken by Roadtrip-Rentals Limited is for both damage caused and insurance excess, the deposit does not mean it covers all damage and insurance excesses, it is a ‘deposit only’, and further payment may be due depending on what damage has been caused and what each policy excess is due. Every hire excess can be different and is available on request.

The lessor generally endeavours to complete this within 3 working days but can take up to seven days in certain circumstances.

A security deposit is taken on the day of collection, it is taken by means of a ‘Pre-Authorisation’ on a credit card. Meaning the money on that day is not taken, we just put a hold on the money for the rental period plus a few days after for the vehicle inspection. As soon as the vehicle has passed our returns inspection the deposit is immediately released.

In the event of an accident or damage

During the renal period the vehicle is your responsibility, just like it is with any rental company. Damage to the vehicle or damage by accident is paid for out of the security deposit. The insurance excess is equal to the security deposit.

In either event of damage or damage by accident is repairable cheaper than the security deposit, we will take out this amount, and refund the balance. We will always get you out of your situation by cheapest means possible.

In the event of BOTH damage to the Motorhome and damage by accident.

We will always pay for the Damage to the motorhome first out of the deposit. Then you will be liable for the damage by accident, meaning if there is enough left in your security deposit to get fixed the damage we will use it, and if not you are liable for the difference, to make it back up to the amount of the insurance excess.

Security Deposits:

Burstner Luxury 744: £1250

Mid-Sized McLouis: £750

Full-Sized Mirage 5000: £750

Combi Pack, Burstner + BMW RT1250R: £1750

Refunds due to cancellation of booking are as follows:

  • Cancel within 7 days of booking Date 100% Refund
  • Cancel up to 4 weeks before rental period start date 50% Refund
  • After this period zero Refund

Money is payable to the lessor at time of booking, this can be a deposit of 25% or full payment. In the event of paying a deposit the remaining 75% is due to be paid in full 28 days before start date of hire period. 

Mileage allowance

All our vehicles have a very generous allowance of 1000 miles per week included in the price. Obviously if you had the vehicle for 2 weeks then your mileage allowance would be 2000 miles included. Any miles above your allowance will be charged @ 50p per mile.
