When dog friendly means dog friendly!
There really is nothing worse than turning up to a dog friendly holiday and being met by a list of things you aren't allowed to do with your dog.. or not even being provided with a water bowl! More often than not, my doggy travel kit is larger than my own travel bag 🙂

Questions & Answers
Do I need to be a certain age to book or have a certain license?
Every hire includes fully comprehensive insurance for one driver. You need to meet the below conditions to be allowed to hire:
- Have a driving licence available to inspect
- Be 23 or over/under 75
- Have held full UK or EU licence for a minimum of two years.
- Have not had their licence suspended for any period within the last three years.
- Have not been involved in more than one fault incident within the last three years.
- Have no more than two convictions with a maximum of 3 points per conviction.
- Have not obtained a BA, DD or UT conviction.
A DVLA check will be undertaken at collection of the van and you will be asked to have copies of drivers licences plus 2
utility bills dated within three months of the hire
Additional drivers can be added for £10 per day.
How do I book?
What time can I collect and drop off?
I dont know about you but 4pm check ins and 10am check outs annoy me – I always feel I lose 2 days of my holiday! That's why our hires work on a 24 hour basis for e.g. if you pick up at midday, your drop off is at midday.
Therefore you can choose anytime between 9am and 5pm to collect/drop off. It may be possible to extend your drop off timing subject to an hourly additional charge.
Can I bring more than one dog?
We love our furiends and therefore allow up to 2 dogs. HOWEVER.... depending on how many of you are hiring, you may wish to take into account the breed and size of your dog(s) when booking. We'd be more than happy to advice and pass on top tips for travelling with your furiends.
Don't forget you will all be travelling together between stops and will need to be able to do so safely but also if you have a rainy day, you will all want to be comfortable inside too.
Is there a mileage limit?
Can we travel outside of the UK?
What is your cancellation policy?
In the event of a cancellation by the hirer the following charges shall be incurred:
- 3 weeks prior to rental to no show: 100% of total hire charge and deposit will be retained
- 6 weeks to 4 weeks prior to rental: 25% deposit will be retained
- More than 6 weeks prior to rental: full refund
All hirers are advised to check their own travel insurance policy in the event of a cancellation by the hirer.
Does the insurance cover personal belongings?
I'm afraid not. We'd always recommend taking out additional cover for your belongings.
Will someone show me how to use everything?
Absolutely. We'll allocate time once you arrive to talk through how everything works. A manual will also be in the campervan to refer to and you can always call us while on the road too.
We'll also ensure you have the manual sent out to you in advance – some bedtime reading!
Is there a toilet in the campervan?
What if it gets cold? Are there heaters?
How many people can sleep in the campervan?
As a fully converted VW T6 Highlight with pop up roof, you can fit up to four. Two sleeping downstairs on the rock n roll bed (back seats pull out and lie flat) plus two upstairs in the pop up roof.
This is ideally suited to 2 adults and 2 children though with additional awning and storage, you could travel as four adults but recognise that between driving and sleeping, things may feel a bit 'small'. We'd def recommend adding the awning onto your hire for additional outside space and consider using the odd campsite (or all campsites) throughout your hire.
Again... like dogs, we'd be happy to advice on what will be the most comfortable set up for you.
