Traveling in UK - informative guide
A motorhome hire holiday can be a fantastic experience. The freedom to go where you want, when you want is something that brings many of our customers back time and time again. A motorhome is a simple way to take all your favourite creature comforts wherever you go. Even so, before you start, it still helps to get some tips and advice.
Driving a motorhome takes some getting used to. Your position will be much higher than with a regular road car and you must be constantly aware of how much space you're taking up in the road. Always plan ahead. Work out your route beforehand - where you're going and when you expect to get there. With a little forethought you can really make the most of your journey and uncover some unknown places of interest in the process.
