Helping you choose the right hire vehicle
Hiring a motorhome from Go South West Motorhome Hire in Devon is a simple process and we go the extra mile to ensure that you are hiring the “right vehicle” for your needs rather than a Camper-van that is the most convenient for us. That’s why we ask for some detail on the “no obligation” enquiry form and better still, love to talk to you on the phone. You will get no hard sell from us and we will not send you endless unwarranted contact through any medium after your hire.
Our meet the motorhomes page details all of our motorhome hire vehicle layouts but if you need any further detail please do not hesitate to ask, call 01803 605 202.
It is worth noting that there is no such thing as the perfect motorhome hire vehicle as they all have more of this and less of that or less of that and more of this. However, here at our office in Torbay and our convenient handover point just 150 yards from the A38 between Ashburton and Newton Abbot, we pride ourselves on the feedback we receive, which is second to none and getting the vehicle right is a large part of that. Of course you can only hire what is available but you will find that we are very honest in our assessment of your needs and their compatibility with the various vehicles.
It is also worth noting that while Go South West Motorhomes for rent compare very favourably with tents and smaller VW or other panel vans, it is still camping so sensible packing and no Samsonite suitcases please.
It is also worth having a think about where you are heading as camp sites vary in terms of facilities and access and we have motorhomes for hire in Devon of varying lengths. Always a good idea to check with your campsite as they will highlight the best access route so VERY wise to follow their guidance and maps are frequently better than satnav. It is great to have the flexibility and freedom that motorhome rental brings to relocate your holiday base but a little thought and planning certainly helps.
Camping and Caravanning Club
In general though it is good to know that the vehicles are Privilege members of the “Camping and Caravanning Club” which offers discounted stays on camp sites all over the country and which usually means good access for motorhomes as well. Their sites also include Camping in the Forest locations. The sites will usually also have good facilities and many have shops. Many people prefer a wilder experience without all the facilities and we can show you how to make the most of your vehicle in the environment although occasional stays on site are advisable to empty and fill tanks.
There are literally thousands of camp sites in the UK and much as we would like to we have not visited all of them. Customers have differing views on what they want to do with their motorhome hire, some arrange their motorhome hire for Scotland, some for magical motorhome hire adventures in Europe and some for one of the many Summer Festivals. A great many hire their motorhome from our convenient Devon depot to tour the West Country so we have pulled together a few suggestions in Devon and Cornwall on this page.
