5 Steps to the Perfect UK Campervan Holiday
What’s great about UK campervan holidays is that you can create fun-filled itineraries or take each day as it comes; the world is your oyster. Having said this, there are a few bits of planning and preparation that really can make the difference between a good and a great campervan holiday.
Choose the Right Vehicle For You
No-one wants a bumpy ride in a banged-up old motorhome with no room to move. But don’t worry, BunkCampers has it covered. We have a huge modern fleet, with all campers less than 3 years old and regularly serviced. Each vehicle goes through a 32 point quality check before we rent it out, so you’re sure to be satisfied! What’s more our extensive range comfortably sleeps all group sizes, from couples to 6 person family and friend getaways.

Make Sure You Plan Ahead
It’s all very well leaving yourself a world of possibilities, but by researching the area where you’re going to find campsites and pick out a few options of activities, you needn’t tie yourself down. You’ll simply have some ideas as a back-up plan if you need them! Websites such as Visit Britain have loads of days out and attractions around the UK to choose from. Similarly, getting to grips with a road map or bringing a GPS can avoid road rage if you get lost. If you don’t have a SatNav it’s just one of the many hireable extras available with BunkCampers to take the hassle out of camping.
Think About Food & Fuel
The great thing about campervans is you can go several days without needing to stop in a campsite, so hit the shops before you go off the beaten track to get plenty of supplies. All of our vehicles are equipped with a kitchen and basic utensils for cooking such as a kettle, pots, pans and cutlery. We even provide enough gas to get you going, and you can fill up on fuel as an extra if you want to hit the road as soon as possible.
Campsites & Parking
Make sure that when you park up for the night you aren’t breaking any regulations; find a campsite, designated parking, or a legal wild camping location before going to bed. Checkout our camping guide and get advice on campsites and parking in the UK.
Rules of the Road
Lastly, follow the rules of the road! You don’t want to add a speeding ticket onto your budget or get caught drink driving, so abide the UK Highway Code as you would in any other circumstances so that your holiday runs smoothly and without any glitches.
By following these five simple steps you can have a carefree campervan holiday that will give you a bank-load of memories with family and friends. Just take a little time to plan and remember to use your head; you’ll be king of the road-trip in no time! You can choose a local pick-up point and start planning your adventure on the road!
