The above prices are reflective that the campervan is rented for more than one day. Most rentals are taken out on loan for a week at a time. The longer the rental is taken out, the lower the daily cost of using one.

In the UK many campervan rental establishments require a driver to be at least 21 years of age to sign a rental agreement before taking out a campervan.

The range of cost for renting a space is from £20 to £75 a night. The more you pay the increased number of amenities you will have that can include electricity, gas, water, waste disposal, restrooms, shower, washing facilities and Wi-Fi access.

Determining the right size of campervan for you

When deciding on what type of campervan is right for your needs first you must list the number of people in your party. Since children take up less space than adults, that also factors into just what size of campervan you need.

Also, look at your budget and where you plan to travel,  If you plan on parking at a holiday park with full amenities including showers and restrooms, then why pay for them twice when renting a campervan.

Providing your own bedding, cooking utensils, child safety seats and bicycles can also help lower the cost of your rental.

Another way to get a good deal is to have your holiday between 21 and 30 days in length, since most rental agencies offer a discount for renting this time length. 

One last note, the older and smaller the campervan, the lower the cost of renting it will be.
