Get Set for Summer with Camper Van Hire!

Published on 31st May 2019

Our favourite summer holiday activities by camper van...


There's so much in store for Summer camper-vanning! If you haven't made plans yet, we've come up with some great ideas...

The Tour de France pedals into action on the 6th July and if you're into cycling (or even if you're not) it is a fantastic event to be a part of.  

This annual, men's multi stage bike race takes 20 teams of 8 on a whistle stop tour of France over 23 days. The route passes through the Pyrenees and the Alps, finishing along the Champs-Elysees in Paris... so you can see why we're recommending it for a road trip. The French countryside is breathtaking and you could combine keeping track of the race with hiking, sightseeing, visiting a vineyard or two and enjoying the local cuisine. FIND OUT MORE HERE.

A VW California camper van is ideal transport and accommodation for your Tour de France adventure. Sporty enough to keep up with the pack but with all the comfortable on board facilities you could wish for. We can provide bike racks and other Extras too.

Festivals are so much better when you hire a camper van...

Booked your festival tickets yet? If you’re still looking for somewhere to head to - read about some of our favourites HERE. There are so many options to choose, from small scale, fun events to huge rock concerts or sports festivals. Whether you’re catching your favourite bands at Glastonbury, hanging out with the family at Larmer tree or catching waves at Board Masters, a VW California camper van, gives you transport, secure accommodation and comfort. Take a look at our festival blog post HERE to find out more.

How about a Summer Camper Van Staycation?

If you haven’t made plans for a summer break yet then maybe this is the year for a Summer staycation. The UK has so much to offer - and the weather forecast is looking bright. Balmy evenings, lovely beaches, beautiful forests and moorlands, plus plenty of tucked-away places that you can explore on your own terms and then spend the evening under the stars.
We like the National Trust Website as a first port of call to find inspiration for holidays that make the best of the Great Outdoors. A fantastic source of information - perfect for finding those little gems.
Then you just need to give us a call and book your VW California. Fully equipped for every eventuality - and with the option to hire additional camping, cycling or child friendly equipment if you like. We’ll ensure your Summer trip was worth staying home for.

A camper van mini break is a great way to break up the Summer school holiday...

Even if you just pop down the road, a few days away in a camper van can be a great way to catch up with the family, spend time with friends and make memories. We have Kamper Hire HQs in Dorset and Hampshire - and both have a plentiful supply of excellent campsites, beaches to explore and places to visit. 

Whether you want to head out and about or just make the most of relaxing at your campsite and enjoying some family time - doing it by camper van makes perfect sense. Give us a call to find out about hiring a family friendly VW California Ocean or California Beach.


Here are a few UK events in August that you  might fancy making a break for...

Cowes Week on the Isle of Wight

The world’s biggest sailing regatta is a must-see. Exploring the island by camper van makes perfect sense and you get to combine the excitement of the regatta with a truly idyllic getaway.

Scarborough Cricket festival

One of the most historic sporting events in the country, this quirky festival gives you something to build a break around. Wonderful countryside and plenty of places to park up and enjoy en-route.

Bournemouth Air Show

Lovely Dorset offers so much. Beautiful beaches, woodland glades - and the excitement of the Air Show! Pickup your camper van from our Poole HQ and explore the Jurassic Coast, then head to Bournemouth and look to the skies.

Trout and About Festival

The beautiful Hampshire Test Valley is home to this fun food festival. Great for gourmets and surrounded by beautiful countryside and lots of lovely villages to tour around.
