Just wanted to write to say again what a great trip we had in the VW California. The van was perfect, both as a vehicle and a home. Whether cruising on the Autoroute or winding through the Alps, the van was smooth, responsive and totally reliable. The interior is so well designed it makes setting up/packing up a quick, easy and pleasurable experience, and provided all the comfort and convenience we needed, and with style! The van received a number of admiring remarks from other 'campers', and we very quickly grew attached to it. It was a real shame to have to hand it back to you after a fabulous month on the road in France. Thanks for making it possible for us. Hopefully be making our next booking soon.

Thank you again for being so accommodating and making our trip through England and Scotland so effortless and enjoyable. "We loved every moment and have told countless people about the pleasures of a camping holiday. We will continue to pass the word about Kamperhire.
David & Pam Van Amber, Sarasota Florida. June 2012.
We have just returned from a 12 week adventure across Europe in the fabulous VW T5 camper and just wanted say a big thank-you to Mark for helping us out through the whole process and for providing the fabulous van. What a little champ!!! It had everything we needed, easy to set up, easy to cook in and surprisingly comfortable to sleep in. It maneuvered its way through the windy roads of Norway, endured the shocking roads of Poland and took the autobahn's in its stride. Even the tiny streets in Italy were no issue for it. Mark provided a great service that surpassed all other hire companies we have dealt with in the past. Not only was he extremely helpful leading up to the holiday, he was only a quick email away with any questions we had during the trip. Alex and I will definitely be using your services again (we already miss the van) and would (and will) recommend you to anyone. A big thank you again!!!

We have just completed a 5 weeks touring holiday of the UK.This style of camper was the choice, as we wanted something comfortable, fuel efficient, reliable, fast on the motorways, small enough for the country roads and to give total ease of parking. A motor home did not meet these requirements. We do a lot of touring in Australia, so we were seeking a similar experience to what we were used to down under. The style of camper from Kamperhire lived up to all those expectations. Mark, the principal, was a pleasure to deal with prior to us leaving home and during our time in the UK. He is prompt in his response to emails and phone calls to Aus. The pick up and drop off arrangements were to clock work. The fit out of the van had met most of our requirements. The bedding (doona, doona cover and pillows) were more than adequate for the weather conditions and he added extra sleeping bags just in case. For Australian & NZ hirers - be advised that the caravan parks do not have camp kitchens or BBQ's like of most of Australia. You will have to make alternate arrangements for the cooking of this style of food - am sure Mark can advise to this if that is what is required. We will be back to complete the UK and Ireland and look forward to dealing with Mark at Kamperhire again.

My husband and I hired a van from Mark at www.kamperhire.co.uk from July to September 2011. We could not have been happier with the service we received. Mark went out of his way to ensure that everything ran smoothly and was very compromising with the delivery and pick up. We found that the price of the van was very good when we compared it with other vans. We were also pleased with the size of the van. We found that we could get through narrow roads with no problems and the fuel economy was just brilliant. The way the van was set up really suited our needs. The sleeping area in the top of the van was very comfortable, with plenty of ventilation, especially on those hot summer nights in the south of France and Italy. We'd like to thank Mark for the wonderful service we received and can highly recommend his business "Kamperhire.co.uk" to anyone planning a trip overseas.

We are a couple of elderly Australians and wanted to hire a van and camp around Britain and Europe. You and your company were so wonderful to deal with and all the enquiries were dealt with efficiently, friendly and quickly. The van was very comfortable and very well equipped that we never wanted for anything. Your information on holiday camps etc was also very helpful. Thank you one again for everything you did for us including meeting us at the train station both when we picked up and dropped off. Keeping in touch via SMS was another plus especially when we had a little accident in Amsterdam. Cannot thank you enough for the way you handled the situation and got us through a difficult time. If we get a chance to do it again we would certainly hire another van from Kamper Hire as we enjoyed every minute of it! Yours truly,
Dawn Stacey, West Tweed Heads, NSW Australia 2011
Just writing to say we had a great time in the California we rented from you. The van was superb, and the thoughtful "essentials" you put in in the cupboard under the sink were a very nice touch. We've seriously thought about buying one now, but it's more likely we'll be back to you for next year's summer holiday! I also appreciated you being on the end of a phone on those occasions when I was in doubt about how to work something. Best of luck with your business going forward. Cheers

Just wanted to make sure you got the message that we'd had a great time away in your kamper. I know we couldn't have managed our time as well and done so much any other way. Thanks also for making sure everything went so smoothly both picking up and dropping off - thankfully we didn't have any breakdowns and not even a flat tyre ;) I'll be sure to pass your name on to anyone who sounds remotely like they're thinking of doing something similar. And if we're over your way again, be sure we'll be in touch. Cheers and thanks heaps for your part in the success of our trip.

In short, we had a great experience with Mark and his company KamperHire. We were in Wales last June representing Canada at the Commonwealth Fly Fishing Championships in and around Llandrindod Wells. We flew into Heathrow and Mark delivered the California VW camper van to us at the hotel. After a quick run down on all the features of the van, we were off to Wales on schedule. The vehicle was in tip top shape, and had additional features that we hadn’t expected (you gotta love those Germans!) On returning to London, after a very successful competition, Mark came by bus to the hotel to pick up the van, and then dropped us off at the Air Canada terminal for our flight home. All in all a great trip made even better with a seamless transaction on the van. Again, Mark was very business like, organized and efficient in all our dealings with him. All the best,

If you are wondering should you hire a bigger motorhome or the more compact Campervan for touring. I can tell you I am so glad we chose the Campervan, it goes anywhere, you can park in towns, just like a car, drive down narrow streets and not be restricted, making your touring holiday more enjoyable. The larger motorhomes have to park on the outskirts of town and are often not allowed to park at the "Park & Rides" as well. And why did we choose Kamperhire, simple, those little extras I did not have to worry about were all included in the price, plus pick up and drop off to suit us - real service, we were really treated as the customer, I would certainly use Kamperhire again. Easy e-mail contact direct with Mark made everything easy. Thanks Again,

Our initial enquiries re the hire of a van for touring in the UK were met with prompt, efficient and friendly customer service from Mark. Subsequently we hired and picked up our 4 berth Californian for two weeks of wonderful camping. The van was in excellent condition, clean, well equipped and a pleasure to make our home for the fortnight. As well, the great customer service continued during our trip, with any questions we had met with a speedy response. We could not have been happier with our van and the customer service provided and cannot wait to do it again. (Pity about the weather, but it is England) All the best with Kamperhire Mark - hope it all goes well for you. Kind regards
Rob and Kay, Williamstown Victoria, Australia. 2011
Bouquets to Mark and KamperHire. We found Mark to be friendly, professional and flexible. Nothing was too much trouble. The Californian was spotlessly clean, well maintained and comfortable. The vehicle was easy to drive around the narrow roads and simple to park. We would use KamperHire again and would recommend to anyone looking for a camping/road trip style holiday. Thanks for your part in making our holiday so enjoyable.

Just a quick email to say thank you very much for such great 5 star service. The “van” really made our holiday a great experience and I can’t see the family going camping without one from now on! . Your service from start to finish was excellent and we have already recommended you to our friends. The van was immaculate on delivery and despite feverish use of the dustpan and brush, looked well lived in on return. Keep up the good work – I feel sure we will be back.
The Atrill Family, Isle of Wight – 2010
Hi Folks! We cannot say enough about how great our experience was with Mark and Kamperhire!!!!! Every aspect of our trip: picking us up at Gatwick, showing us the van details, connection re. insurance while in Ireland, returning the van and taking us back to London.... all were terrific!! The van had only had one trip before we took it so it was shiny new and you can imagine our nervousness on those narrow roads with his brand new gorgeous van. We consider Mark a friend after our association and are pleased to assist! If you are sleeping in the type we had, one tip.... we moved the mattress pad from the upper bunk to the bed in the cabin each night, to make it more comfortable. All the best!
Kathrine Moran, Toronto, Canada – 2009
Fantastic 4 week holiday in UK , Scotland and Wales. Loved the van and great service. We recommend you to our friends in Australia for their next holiday
Greg and Kathy Russell Coffs Harbour NSW Aus- 2009
We hired a camper last year at xmas from Mark when we went travelling around Europe. France, Belgium, Germany and Holland for 2 weeks. We had an absolutely fab time and we're so glad we chose Kamper hire. The pictures really don't due the camper justice. They are extremely comfortable, spacious, warm [which was essential being in snowy weather!], powerful and really easy to drive. We are planning to rent one again when our baby son is a little older because we had so much fun and it was a real adventure!! :)
Holly Enticott, Southampton – 2009
We are an Australian couple in our mid 60s who spent several months on holiday in UK during 2006. We have relatives and many friends in England and wanted to be able to visit them easily, do a lot of sight-seeing and have the independence of our own accommodation whilst travelling around.??The VW T5 campervan we hired was extremely well appointed and kitted out, it was very easy to drive, economical to run and extremely comfortable to cook, eat and sleep in. The compact size of the T5 was ideal for all driving, parking and camping conditions. We are keen now to do a similar holiday in Europe.
Harry and Deidre Pyle, Perth, Western Australia - 2008
We've had many travel experiences around the globe including renting a 1982 VW van in southern California but nothing can compare with our experience with Kamperhire. After conducting an Internet search we located your site and were immediately assisted with our vacation plans. Your description of the vans matched perfectly with what you provided. We could not have been happier with our adventure chariot! I didn't realize driving lessons were also included! While having the steering wheel on the opposite side and driving on the "wrong" side of the road seemed normal to you, I appreciate the time you spent helping me feel comfortable with the van. Once on my way, I knew you were just a phone call away if I had any questions?? Thanks for the opportunity to experience the local side of Wales, England and Scotland and making this adventure an unforgettable experience.
Catherine Carlisle, Portsmouth, New Hampsire, USA – 2007
Our Kamperhire holiday in 2007, was one of the best and most relaxing holidays we have ever had. The staff were very polite and helpful and spent plenty of time familiarising us with the Camper van before we set off. The T5 vans are maintained to the highest spec, and were in pristine condition inside and out, and thoughtfully stocked with all the items you need for a hassle free holiday. We spent an enjoyable 2 weeks touring Northern Scotland, the vehicle is perfect to explore remote places in comfort, even on hundreds of miles of single track roads in the far north, it never felt too big and was a joy to drive. Once you have tried this style of travel and the freedom it gives you, you will never want to go on a conventional holiday again..if you enjoy the outdoors you will love this way of getting out there.. we enjoyed it so much we have now bought our own T5 Camper.
