Lots of people will be having a break on the bank holiday so why not use the time to catch up with friends and family? If you hire a motorhome to visit, you can stay without imposing on your hosts – and have the flexibility to cook meals and take things at your own pace, should you wish.
Often people focus on holidays in far-flung places; yet miss the treasures on their doorstep. Scotland has so much to offer – from the wild Highlands to the picturesque Borders – have you really seen it all? Why not hire a motorhome for a few days and visit those places you’ve always meant to see...
Do it your way
Motorhomes offer more flexibility to your lifestyle than any other kind of holiday. A home from home, you can have all your creature comforts around you while you get out and have an adventure.
Children love it
If you are travelling with children, it’s easy to stick to their routines and have a relaxing break – and the novelty of the motorhome means that the holiday starts straight away!
Comfortable all year round
Unlike a tent, or less superior motorhomes – our vehicles all come with in-cab air conditioning and heating through the whole living space. Coupled with spacious sleeping areas and a well-equipped kitchen, you have everything you need to recharge.
An accessible choice
There’s no need to hold an HGV license for our motorhomes – they can all be driven on a standard license – even the biggest model. And points on your license are ok – so long as you have no more than 8.
Hold a foreign license? That’s fine too – no need to apply for an International license.
So what are you waiting for? Book your UnbeatableHire motorhome online today, and start planning your bank holiday fun!
