If you're interested in War History, our D Day Anniversary camper van Tour could be perfect for you...

June 6th sees the 75th Anniversary of the Normandy Landings and a whole host of commemorative activity in remembrance of D Day. A camper van is an excellent way to tour the beaches, get to see the key points at Bayeux and Coleville-sur-Mer and spend time learning about, and reflecting on, this hugely significant period in history. 

Whether you book a trip for June, or decide to take your tour later on in the year - if it’s one of the things on your wish list, now’s the perfect time and a camper van is ideal transport.


7 Day French Battlefield Tour - Some Points of interest

7 days camper van hire means you could start from Calais and onto the beaches and dunes at Dunkerque, where besieged troops were rescued in 1940 by thousands of boats. Nearby friendly La Chaumière is a lovely place to stay. The tunnels and trenches of the Ypres battlefields were the main base for the British in WW1 - don't miss The Last Post, played at Menin Gate every night.

Next up, Passchandaele taking in Tyne Cot, the largest British cemetery in the world with its haunting mass of crosses. The Somme battlefield is where war poet Wilfred Owen fought and wrote his poetry. Pozières is where Anzac troops fought and fell in 1916 and the beaches between Le Havre and Cherbourg saw the start of the Allies' major offensive against the Germans. All thought-provoking, all fascinating. And the beautiful French countryside is there to enjoy along the way.

Choose the Beach & Ditch the Kitchen...

The Snazzy VW California Beach gives you just that little bit more room than the VW Ocean because it doesn't have the on board kitchen.
