FAQ

Are there any insurance restrictions?

Drivers must be aged 25 and over and must of held a full British driving licence for three or more years. Additional drivers may be considered on request (subject to the above conditions)

Is fuel included?

The vans are hired with a full tank of fuel and should be returned with a full tank of fuel. If the van is returned without a full tank of fuel we reserve the right to charge £25 plus the cost of filling up the van. This will be deducted from the security deposit and a receipt will be provided.

How far can we travel?

We do not include a mileage limit. Be warned however, with a top speed of about 50mph it's best to plan a leisurely trip.

Can we take the van abroad?

We currently do not hire for travel outside of mainland Britain.

What do we need to bring?

You'll need to bring your clothes,we advise something like a rucksack instead of a rigid suitcase. You will also need bedding,pillows and personal towels. Tea towels are provided. We find that a sleeping bag works best or alternatively a double duvet with a base sheet.

What happens if the van breaks down?

We keep our vans maintained to the highest standard but in the unlikely event of a breakdown full AA cover is provided. If the van cannot be fixed roadside the AA will bring the van and you back to Poshpampacampa.

Are the vans easy to drive?

Bluebell is a 40 year old classic and is therefore different to a modern car. The performance and the braking are not the same but because you are higher up the view is great. The gears are easy to use and you very soon get used to the length. We will take you out for a short drive and after a few minutes at the wheel you'll be ready to enjoy your adventure.

Do we need any other insurance?

The insurance provided covers the vehicle and DOES NOT cover your personal belongings. We therefore strongly advise that you take out holiday or travel insurance to cover this. The insurance can also provide cover should you need to cancel your booking.

How is the stove fuelled?

The stove and hob are fuelled by propane bottle. This is included in the hire charge. We try and ensure there is enough gas for your trip but should you run out please replace the bottle at a petrol station, camping shop or similar and we will reimburse you the cost when you return

Can we bring our dog?

We are happy for small, well behaved dogs to travel in our van. Please bring blanket or towel to protect the upholstery. There is room on the floor for a dog bed. We ask that your pet is not left unattended in the camper at any time. Finally, we charge £20 for the extra valeting at the end of your trip.

Can we smoke in the campervan?

Absolutely not. All our campers are non-smoking.

Can you store our car?

You are more than welcome to leave your car at our address. However this is only off road parking and we cannot accept any responsibility for any loss or damage.
