Campervan Hire Advice & Travel Info

How do I get the best possible price for my rental?

Vanderlust UK use a unique Flex Rates system that rewards 5% discount on bookings made 12 weeks in advance and paid in full. To take advantage of these rates, it is important that your planning is done well in advance of the travel dates and that your Vanderlust campervan booking is made as early as possible. If your dates are flexible you may also be able to take advantage of the cheaper rates that apply at certain times throughout High/Mid/Low seasons.

What's included in my Vanderlust UK campervan?

When you get your Vanderlust campervan you'll find a gas stove, fridge and sink, 4 berth LWB campervans include a shower and toilet which on LWB models is internal. We supply kitchen equipment including crockery, cutlery, frying pan, sauce pans. All you need to bring are your board shorts, selk bag or onesie, favourite duvet, pillow and your sense of adventure. If you'd prefer not to bring your sleeping gear, that's cool, we also offer a Personal Kit for hire (towel, pillow, pillow case, duvet, bed sheet), as well as an extensive range of additional items, including outdoor tables & chairs, an awning, baby & booster seat. We suggest that you pack your belongings into soft bags instead of suitcases as they take up less room and can easily fit into the storage compartments below and above the beds.

You can 'free camp' outside of towns and in country areas. Most National Trust Parks have areas set aside for camping like in the New Forest. If your trip is about going further afield across Europe especially Ireland & France there is endless places to free camp and enjoy your freedom on the road. Please visit our links section for a full list.

If visiting our HQ in Ireland there is caravan parks in all major tourist centres and in most towns. Our Ireland partner campsites offer excellent recreational facilities, as well as resources to dispose of your waste water. They also have provision for you to plug the vehicle into electricity. Please visit our HQ site for Ireland.

How long does the battery system last?

Vanderlust campervans have two batteries - one to run the engine and the other to operate the living equipment such as the fridge and lights. This battery will remain charged for approximately 10 hours. If you flatten it you can start the engine to recharge.
