How do I book a motorhome?

Use the online quote request system on the website to select the required dates and type of motorhome along with any additional extras required. Lakeland Motorhome Hire will then check availability and provide you with an all inclusive tailored quotation via email. If the requested motorhome is unavailable for the requested dates we will advise the nearest alternative dates to those requested.

If you wish to accept the quotation and confirm the booking we require a non refundable deposit of £200 per week of hire by credit or debit card. The balance of the hire charge will be charged to the credit/debit card 6 weeks prior to the start of the hire. Credit card bookings are subject to a 3% charge. Debit cards or direct bank transfers do not incur any additional charges.

The security deposit will be pre-authorised on the credit/debit card 48hrs prior to collection. This acts as an insurance excess during your hire, and will be refunded provided that the vehicle is returned clean and undamaged as described in our terms and conditions. In the event of an insurance claim the cost of the damage or claim will be deducted from your deposit.

How long am I able to rent a motor home for?

Our peak season rentals are for a minimum of 7 nights  (special deals available for longer durations over 21 days contact us for details). During mid and low season we can cater for shorter breaks of 3 or 4 nights

When and where can I collect the motorhome?

Our motorhomes are available for hire all year round. We recommend you book well in advance, particularly during busy periods.

The motorhomes are available for collection at our base in Drigg between 14.30 and 17.00. Weekly rentals start on Fridays or Saturdays subject to availability.

It must be returned between 08.30 and 11.00 at the end of the hire period. This ensures the motorhome is available for the next hire.

Failing to return the motorhome will incur a charge - the daily hire rate or part thereof. There are no refunds for early return.

Where can the motorhome be driven?

Our motorhomes can be driven in the UK and Europe. When in Europe the motorhomes will require extra insurance cover which can be included at time of booking.

Who can drive a motorhome?
Anyone between the ages of 23-75 who has held the required license, for at least 2 years, and has current driving experience can drive our motorhomes. Please check with our rental assistants regarding any driving convictions/penalty points that you may have.

What are the safety considerations?

All of our vehicles are less than 12 months old and are fitted with the latest safety equipment, including seatbelts on all designated passenger seats.

We provide a range of extra safety equipment as a part of our on board inventory such as a first aid kit, fire blanket, high visibility vest and warning triangle. See our inventory for a full list of equipment included.

Do not over load the vehicle as this is an offence and also dangerous. Make sure that anything loaded is evenly balanced.

What are motorhomes like to drive?

Even if you have never driven a motorhome before do not worry! Our new motorhomes are easy to drive. Make the most of the comfortable, high driving position, build your confidence by driving steadily and look out for low hanging branches!

How do I park a motorhome?

Due to the size of our motorhomes when parking you need to ensure that you have enough space around you to manoeuvre the vehicle easily. Make use of the well placed mirrors and try to avoid busy areas until you become more proficient.

What is provided, what should I take?

We provide a range of crockery, cutlery and utensils for you to use along with a range of safety equipment. Unless requested at time of quotation/booking you will need to provide your own bedding such as pillows and sleeping bags, towels, washing up liquid and extra toilet rolls! Make sure you have taken out travel insurance to cover you in the event that you lose or damage any of your personal possessions.

What fuel do the motorhomes use and how many miles to the gallon will I get?

Our motorhomes run on Diesel fuel. You should be able to achieve around 25 miles per gallon.

Where can I park the motorhome overnight and camp?

Motorhomes are not able to park overnight on the roadside in most areas of Europe. Therefore it is best to pre-book a campsite pitch before you leave, particularly at busy times. Complimentary membership of the Camping and Caravanning Club is included in your hire.

Where possible, hard standing pitches are the most desirable as they make parking easy. Check the facilities available with the campsite, and whether there is mains power/ electric hook up.

There are a number of additional extras that you can hire to enhance your motorhome holiday experience.

  • Linen/Bedding Pack £12.00 per person per hire
  • EU Travel Pack inc 24hr Breakdown and Roadside Assistance  £110.00 per week

Yes, well behaved furry friends are allowed for a small additional charge.

Can I leave my vehicle with you?

Yes, we provide parking at our premises for 1 vehicle during the hire period. Vehicles are left at owners risk.

How do I use the on-board facilities?

Water

The motorhomes are fitted with an onboard water tank, which will be full upon collection. This will last for around 2-3 days but the easily visible gauges on board will allow you to see how much water is left and when the tank needs refilling. You will be able to fill up at petrol stations and camp sites. There is also a grey water tank and this will need to be emptied when you fill up with fresh water.

Toilet / shower room
The cassette toilet has an electric flush and the chemicals required to keep it clean and fresh are provided. The toilet has a separate cartridge which needs to be emptied into an appropriate disposal point which you will find on campsites. Please empty and clean the toilet before return. Failure to do so will result in a charge of £50.00

Refrigerator
All of our motorhomes are fitted with a refrigerator in the kitchen area. If the engine is off for long periods or you are not plugged into the mains power at a campsite, turn the refrigerator off. The high level of insulation will keep food cold for approximately 2-3 hours and the battery/gas will not run down.
