The best fleet of motorhomes and camper vans for rent in United Kingdom
Sharing a complicated history, and no less than 32 UNESCO World Heritage Sites, the UK nations have a diverse landscape. Neat parcels of farmland in the southeast drift into rolling hills to the north, snowy mountains in Wales, epic lochs (lakes) in Scotland and a whole symphony of Game of Thrones vistas in Northern Ireland are waiting for you to explore them in your motorhome rental in the UK. The Jurassic Coast of the southwest contributes to one of the longest national coastlines on the planet, while the likes of Stonehenge, the Lake District, and North York Moors have been wowing visitors for literally hundreds of years.
The only part of the UK where it’s permitted to wild camp is in Scotland, where it is allowed on any public land, including within the Cairngorms National Park. However, permits are required for campervan rental in the UK to stay at the national parks, Loch Lomond and the Trossachs, between March and September because of its popularity. At the opposite end of the UK, Dartmoor has dedicated spots for backpack (i.e., wild) camping too. Likewise, it is generally tolerated away from settlements in the Lake District. It’s normally fine to camp on private land – so long as you ask permission from the landowner first.
The UK drives on the left-hand side of the road. There are no border formalities between the four nations. A good motorway network connects most major towns and cities. The speed limit is 70 mph (112 kph). In rural areas of Scotland and Northern Ireland, single track roads are common. Passing places exist every few hundred meters.
There are very few toll roads in the UK, the main one being the M6 Toll around Birmingham in the Midlands. Prices for campervans range from £8-12. Some bridges also charge a toll, most notably the Humber Bridge in northern England. Campervan charges start at £1.35. With careful planning, alternative free routes can be used.
