Hiring a Motorhome – The Benefits

As a leading Southwest motorhome hire company, it’s safe to say we know a thing or two about motorhome getaways! If you’re toying with the idea of motorhome hire, but are still weighing up the pros and cons compared to your usual package holiday, read on to discover the benefits of motorhome hire:

Convenience: Motorhomes provide you with an all-in-one travel solution. With cooking, sleeping, relaxing, dining, bathroom and driving facilities all under one roof, you’ve got everything you could need right at your fingertips! Plus, motorhomes are entirely self-contained, so you won’t need to worry about hunting down bathrooms during long journeys – particularly helpful if you’ve got little ones in tow.

Comfort: If you’re a restless traveller, then you’ve probably felt frustrated with not being able to stretch your legs properly on a train, coach or plane. One of the biggest perks of hiring a motorhome is that you can take as many rest stops as you like – the journey becomes part of the adventure, rather than a source of frustration. The seats within motorhomes are typically very comfortable too, so you can really travel in style!

Location: Perhaps an obvious point, but one that we consider to be vitally important is the freedom to choose where you want to go and when you want to do it. This isn’t something you’re typically able to do on a package holiday, so if the freedom of choice is something you crave, then hiring a motorhome could be perfect for you!

Most motorhomes feature plenty of clever integrated storage space, so you can easily bring all your essentials with you.

Cost: There’s a common misconception that it’s more expensive to take a motorhome holiday than it is to take a package holiday, but you can actually enjoy a much more cost-effective getaway when you hire a motorhome. With no need to pay for costly hotel rooms, lay out for additional travel expenses or eat every meal out in a café or restaurant, there’s plenty of scope to spend smarter and make some savings.
