Hi Stef & Ian,
We hired this Motorhome for just under 4 weeks & would like to say we had an absolute ball of a holiday. We will be returning in a few years, so I’m hoping you have a frequent user scheme, WE WILL BE BACK TO HIRE FROM YOU AGAIN.
As we have our own Motorhome in Australia that we use frequently we were a little worried that somehow a hire Motorhome wouldn’t come up to our standards, but we were happily wrong. Everything that we expected to find within the Motorhome was there, not once did I think “why don’t they include this or that”. As I hate the cold weather, yes I know we came in March when its cold, I LOVED the diesel heater. My husband has a CPAC machine & the house battery coped fine with the machine running all night.
We traveled around England & Ireland loving every minute of our adventure. As we are used to “free camping” we weren’t sure how we would managed in a country we weren’t totally familiar with but we managed it & only used a Tourist Park every 4-5 days, so we could top up our water & empty our waste.
Here’s some tips for International tourists who are thinking about traveling around that we hadn’t thought of-
* Unlike Australia not ALL UK Tourist Parks are open all year round, Galway didn’t have an available park for us in March.
* Dump points (for blackwater) are not freely available, again this is something that most Australian towns have available for free.
* Cliffs of Moher, charges to enter the car park per person, but its free to enter the Cliffs, so it cost us 24 Euro. What we should have done if we had known, was let 3 of us out of the Motorhome before we entered the car park, the cost would have been 6 euro.
