No, you can drive as many miles as you like within your hire period.

Our insurance covers drivers aged 25 to 75.
We can only rent to drivers who:
You can check out the booking section of our website https://www.homeontheroadrentals.co.uk/book-online/ to search for available dates and make a booking enquiry.
No sorry. The motorhome is not designed nor rated for that.
Yes we have a smart digital TV. Signal is not guaranteed however, it would depend where you are going. There is also an Amazon Firestick which you are free to access with your own account.
We have a 4G wifi router which you can connect your personal devices for unlimited streaming. This also connects to the Firestick / TV. Like the TV, signal coverage is not guaranteed however.
Absolutely! The motorhome is stored on a secure official motorhome storage facility (CaSSOA Gold standard) which is fully fenced and gated, has 24hr patrols, is fully covered by CCTV and has strict entry / exit procedures (you can only enter with a keyfob linked to a photograph). You can leave your car there whilst you take the motorhome however we have to point out we are not responsible for loss or damage should you take this option.
Yes. We offer year-round rentals.
Yes there is a built-in Sat Nav system but it will not warn of any roads / bridges not suitable for the motorhome so please plan your route very carefully – if in doubt, take another route!
Yes, both are installed on the motorhome. But we would still recommend you get a fellow passenger to assist you in reversing into and pulling out of spaces / campsite pitches.
Unfortunately as we use the vehicle ourselves and our young daughter has allergies it’s not possible to bring pets along with you, as much as we love them!
Yes. We take a £700 deposit before you take the motorhome which is fully refundable as soon as the vehicle is returned with no damage / issues.
Before the booking commences we require:
Our insurance does not cover a trip outside the UK but should this change we shall advise.
3 nights is the minimum rental period.
We understand that sometimes plans can change. If you need to cancel your booking, provided this is communicated to us more than 4 weeks before your scheduled departure date, we would only retain the £200 deposit. For cancellations made 2 – 4 weeks before your booking, we would retain 50% of the total booking cost. Cancellations within 1 week of departure would unfortunately force us to keep 100% of the booking cost.
Yes we have a Thule manual winding awning which is simple to operate. Note that the purpose of the awning is to use as a sun shade. It is NOT load bearing, it should not be used in extreme rain or wind conditions and should be retracted overnight and should always be pegged down with the pegs provided.
The vehicle will be filled with diesel when you collect it. Please return it full (there is a BP garage right next to the storage facility). If we have to fill ourselves we will have to charge for the cost of filling the vehicle up plus a £25 refueling charge which will be deducted from your £700 security deposit.
Yes. We provide plenty of cutlery, glasses etc. We even include tea and coffee and maybe some further goodies! If you have children please let us know and we can include child-friendly plastic plates, bowls, cutlery.
Yes all bedding is included. At the end of the hire if you can please place this in a black plastic bag along with the tea towels so we can easily get it cleaned it would be most appreciated.
We kindly request that you provide your own bathroom towels.
We have a full size table and up to 4 adult chairs – you can add these to your booking upon request for no additional charge.
We have an Ikea high chair, a lightweight stroller and a kids table with 2 chairs. These are suitable for small children – you can add these to your booking upon request for no additional charge.
Yes but it is not compatible with Isofix. We have 2 Cosatto seats available – one for an infant and one for a child. These fix to the seats using the seatbelts. You can add these to your booking upon request for no additional charge. Alternatively you can use your own provided they are compatible (ie can be fixed in place using seat belts).
Yes there will be 2 gas bottles to use with at least 1 full one. Should one run out you can connect the 2nd back-up one. Instructions will be provided in your handover. Should the gas run out and you require more it is your responsibility to exchange a bottle at your cost and any unused gas at the end of your trip will remain with the bottle / vehicle with no credit or refund due to you.
This must be emptied at the site before you return the vehicle. The chemicals are provided. Instructions will be provided in your handover.
There will likely be some fresh water in the tanks but it is advised to fill up at the water point on site rather than travel with a full water tank. You are advised to empty the grey water tank (ie waste water run off from the sinks / shower) at the site upon your departure. Note we do not recommend the use of the fresh water for drinking unless it has been boiled / sterilised.
Yes you can however it is strongly recommended that if you are inexperienced with motorhoming you undertake a lot of research beforehand as you will need to consider things like how long the battery, gas bottles and fresh water will last and where you can safely and legally dispose of the chemical toilet waste, waste water and general waste / rubbish. It’s not very easy for us to give guidelines on this as the usage will depend on number of passengers and your habits. You will also need to consider where you can legally park up for the night as not all places permit this.
Like anything attempted for the first time it can seem daunting at first, however if you take it slowly, use the large mirrors, reversing camera, sensors, get assistance from your passengers when maneuvering in and out of any tight or congested spaces and obey all speed limits and traffic regulations you will be in a good position!
7.40m long, 2.89m high and 2.3m wide. You may need these when booking a pitch at a campsite and of course the height needs to be considered when going under bridges. We include a quick reference placard in the driver’s sunvisor showing all the dimensions for you to easily refer to when driving.
