Tips for driving a campervan in the UK
- The UK has a great motorway network, so it is ideal to explore with a campervan. You will only come across a few toll roads such as the Humber Bridge, M4 Severn Bridge, Birmingham M6 and the M25 Dartford Tunnel. Coastal roads can get quite congested during the peak holiday season, so if you want to avoid the crowds it is best to book outside of these times.
- It's a good idea to check the details of Paperless Driving Licences in the UK so that you will know what documents to present when you pick up your campervan rental.
- Looking for a place to park your campervan rental in the United Kingdom? It is best to avoid parking your vehicle within the city centre because of the limited space. Motorhomes are also not commonly allowed to park in multi-story parking spaces. Particularly if you are visiting London, it is a good idea to park on the outskirts and use public transportation to travel to the city centre. Other parking options include the railway stations and large supermarkets. Take note of height restrictions signs when you enter carparks.
- It is essential to have a copy of The Highway Code when you are visiting the United Kingdom. This booklet will come in handy as it provides all the traffic rules and speed restrictions. The speed limits for motorhomes in the UK differ from cars, so it is best to maintain slower speeds.
