When can you get away on a motorhome holiday again?
Following the announcement by Boris Johnson that we will be entering a ‘Stay Alert’ phase of the pandemic, we have seen a huge surge of enquiries for hiring a motorhome. It’s been very encouraging. But, when can you actually go away for your motorhome holiday?
It’s a question we are working hard to find an answer to.
At the moment our hire business is in suspended animation. The team are furloughed and we are awaiting clearer guidance from the government on lockdown rules. The Prime Minister has suggested that hospitality and leisure industries can return to work at the beginning of July. Currently no social overnight travel is permitted. Plus, all the campsites are closed. With many of our customers wishing to go to Wales ad Scotland this is an issue too as both countries are still in lock down. Our best estimate at the moment is a return to business on or around Wednesday 1st July. In the meantime, we are fielding high levels of enquiries from all over the UK for when motorhome hire starts again.
There has been lots of commentary that the Great British staycation will be back in full swing for 2020 and 2021. A motorhome is a great way to explore the UK! Not to mention the benefits of being totally self-sufficient with your own toilet, drinking water, on board shower and cooking facilities. Most campsites will be able to honour social distancing rules quite easily with self-sufficient leisure vehicles, such as motorhomes, being parked at least 6m apart and often further apart than this.
In response to the current climate and the expected limits in international travel meaning a boost in UK holidays, we have taken steps to grow our business. We will be adding 8 new motorhomes to our hire fleet for this season. These include a range of family layouts with bunk beds and also motorhomes ideal for couples too. Plus, we have recruited a new team member to help ease the workload that we expect to face in July and have extensive plans for using video in our hire handovers. More details to follow on all this and more…
So, for the moment our best guess is that motorhome hire will start again from 1st July. So, please be patient and use the time to plan your trip.
We are also updating our terms and conditions to allow for the refund or issue of a credit voucher if we are unable to supply a motorhome as a result of a lockdown. Details to follow.
