How We Make it Easy

We want to make everything as easy as possible for you, from choosing your T2, to making your booking, to arriving here and setting off safely and in a relaxed (but excited!) way. We offer you a fully equipped, reliable, well prepared, clean and most importantly characterful vehicle for your holiday and all your hire costs are included in the price.

We are easy to get to as well. If you are arriving into Edinburgh airport you travel to us via the Airport Bus and a train, the whole journey takes around 90 minutes and you are met at the local station with your van where we get you and your holiday underway as promptly as possible. If you are arriving by car you can of course leave it with us.

Who are our customers?

Anyone and everyone. Touring Scotland by campervan is a great holiday in itself but our customers add an extra dimension by touring in these most nostalgic and characterful of vehicles. Our customers come from all corners of the globe, they are all ages, some come on their own, others as couples and some have children. What they all  have in common is the imagination to appreciate how these wonderful machines can take their holiday to the extraordinary.

We love welcoming all nationalities and last year (2018) this was where our customers came from:

Most Frequently Asked Questions

No, everything you need is included (we pass on the laundry charge if you want to borrow bedding and can hire you child seats if you need – all done at cost though)
No, a 25% deposit secures the booking – the balance is due with 6 weeks to go.
Almost certainly yes. European, US, Canadian, Australian, New Zealand licenses qualify automatically. Any others we may need to refer to our insurers – even in extreme cases there is usually a way.
It is about as easy and quick as you would hope (see Super Convenient Access) We don’t allow pick ups from the airport – part of you handover is a familiarisation drive and this needs to be done on quiet roads.
T2s are from a different era in vehicle design. They are heavier and a little more awkward to drive but they are within the capabilities of everyone. We give all drivers a familiarisation drive to make certain they are comfortable and safe before they set off, some drivers take 3 minutes, some 20, no one has a) not gone and b) in our opinion not been safe driving their T2
Yes, we have dog friendly vans, please note on the Booking Form if you intend to bring your pet. There are a few common sense rules, the dog should not go on the upholstery, should have his/her own basket or blanket (for sleeping) be adequately restrained at all times and not be left alone in the van. There may also be the possibility of additional charges if our cleaners need to do further cleaning.
Yes, 120 miles per day (cumulative ie a total for days hired) Our customers usually average 35 mph on their trip (don’t over estimate the roads in the north of Scotland or the speed of a T2) Three to four hours a day driving a T2 is plenty for most:)
No, they are all manual, if you are not comfortable driving a manual you may struggle with a T2
This is your choice, during very busy periods in areas with few campsites it may be prudent. Most people don’t and prefer a less structured itinerary taking their chances.
In Scotland generally yes and this is a highly recommended way of maintaining flexibility. A strategy of a couple of days wild camping then 1 night in a campsite is a typical strategy. We have extra information on the site explaining this.
Yes, you are likely to have a very good time:)
