What Is the Best Type of Campervan to Hire in the UK?

vehicle types before booking a campervan in the UK guide banner

Depending on what part of the UK you will be visiting and how many people you will be travelling with, some campervans may be better suited to your needs than others. Here is a general guide to the types of vehicles you can hire:

Campervans that sleep 2 adults

Smaller campervans generally sleep two adults. These vehicles may not feature kitchen and bathroom facilities and have limited storage space. If you are unsure about driving a large vehicle on the small, country roads in the UK, this type of vehicle could be a good choice. They are also easier to park, and generally more fuel efficient.

Perfect for: Travel through cities and metropolitan areas where there are busy traffic and more difficult parking areas. If you are planning to travel to cities such as London, Oxford or Cambridge, you may prefer a smaller vehicle.

Campervans for 3-4 adults

If you're travelling as a family, a vehicle that sleeps four adults could be the right choice for you. Campervans of this size generally feature kitchen and bathroom facilities.

Perfect for: If you are planning on travelling in more remote areas where you need your own amenities, but still need a vehicle that can be easily driven on small, country roads, this vehicle might be just the right size.

Larger vehicles for 5-6 adults

If you are travelling long distances and would prefer to be more self-sufficient, larger motorhomes are a great way to go. These vehicles can sleep six adults, and feature plenty of extra storage space. They are also equipped with kitchen and bathroom facilities.

Perfect for: If you are travelling on motorways and rural highways, and need a bit of extra space, a larger motorhome will provide you with some additional comfort.
