Licences and Restrictions for Campervan Hire in the UK & Ireland
Travel is our business and we aim to make campervan hire as flexible as possible. However, there are some restrictions that apply due to insurance regulations or legislation in the markets we operate in.
If you are aged from 21 – 74 years you can rent a Bunk Camper. If you are a driver aged 21-24 years, you can rent a Roadie 2 person campervan from our fleet. If you are aged 25-74 years and over, you can rent any campervan from our fleet. Surcharges will be automatically added to your booking for young drivers (aged 21-24 years) and senior drivers (aged 70-74 years)
UK Drivers License
If you have a UK driving licence, we require you to present your national insurance number, drivers license number and postcode upon arrival. This will ensure we can check the counterpart of your driving licence and present it at the depot.
Alternatively you can log in to the Gov.uk website (https://www.gov.uk/view-driving-licence), check and print the counterpart of your driving licence and present it at the depot.
We are unable to insure you if we are not able to check your counterpart driving licence details.
If you have a Northern Ireland driving licence, we still require both the photocard licence and the paper counterpart.
All paper licences issued before 1998 are still valid.
Republic of Ireland State Residents
Our Dublin depot is a tourist depot only for overseas visitors to Ireland. For renters who are resident in the Republic of Ireland, certain restrictions apply. The hire of a vehicle from our Dublin depot is not available to state residents of the ROI. The hire of a vehicle from any other Bunk Campers depot is available to state residents of the ROI. For state residents wanting to to hire a campervan in Ireland, we offer free parking at our Belfast depot for your convenience.
Normal residence means a place where a person usually lives (for at least 185 days each year) because of personal or occupational ties.
Driving on the Connor Pass
Bunk Campers campervans and motorhomes can only be driven on road sealed or bitumen roads. Don’t be tempted to off road in a campervan! Also note, driving is not permitted on the Connor Pass, County Kerry, Ireland as the road is too narrow.
Driving to mainland Europe
Bunk Campers are available to rent for driving through the UK, Ireland & mainland Europe. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to hire a campervan for travel to mainland Europe.
