Campervans have taken over glamping in the UK as the camping alternative of choice this year, and the range of luxury campervans for hire - for those who really don't want to skimp on comfort during their break - has never been better. 

During the pandemic, the popularity of 'van life' surged as people sought to escape every day life and retreat on an adventure without setting foot on a plane. DIY campervans also saw an increase in popularity as people used their extra time at home to take on new projects. Research by motorhome rental company Camptoo revealed that searches for van renovations rose by 2000% in 2021. But if last year was all about the DIY vans, 2022 is all about luxury campervans for hire. 

Banish the thought of roughing it on a campsite when you hire one of these luxury campervans for the weekend.  These vans and motorhomes have all the mod-cons you'd want and more, whilst also giving you the freedom to hit the road on an epic road trip of your choice for a memorable staycation in the UK.
