The campers have enough storage for all your holiday and travelling needs – they come equipped with a 2-burner hob, sink, spacious fridge, heater, rollout sun canopy, and clever hidden features, such as the two chairs in the tailgate.

Active Kampers – Environmentally Friendly Travel:

In addition to looking good on the road – the Active Kampers experience ensures your environmental impact is kept to a minimum.

Our low emission VW Campervan hire is perfect for reducing your holiday carbon impact. The vans emit far less carbon for a family than taking a short flight and are fuel efficient to 40mpg.

All our VW California’s recharge their leisure batteries as you drive, which means you can use them for several days without the need for an electrical hook-up.

We wash our vans using waterless cleaning products and good old-fashioned elbow grease! We also include Ecover cleaning products in your welcome pack and re-usable recycling bags – and we’ll even take-in your recyclable items at our base when you return!

VW Campervan Hire Europe Travel – Route tips and tricks…

There’s no better way to see Europe than on the road – especially from the comfort of a California. Here’s three more routes to get the juices going for your European adventure!

The Grand Tour: Switzerland, France, Italy

Kick off at Geneva’s Lake Léman waterfront. Then head along the south shore, passing from Switzerland into France.

Take the D902 south, climbing steeply to Chamonix via Thonon-Les-Bains. The seven-mile Mont-Blanc tunnel under the highest Alp is a strange thrill; emerging into Italy’s deep Aosta valley is even better. From Turin, head south for Alba, hitting the Med at Savona. Enjoy the Levantine Riviera as far as La Spezia, then find the little roads climbing up the Apennines to Abatone, and then twist down into Florence. Make a circuit by returning on the winding minor routes to Bologna or Modena, then back up to the Alps via Milan.

Route distance: 500 miles

Pas de Calais, France

Take the little D940 via Boulogne along the Côte d’Opale to Le Touquet. Passing the pretty coastal cliffs and villages, such as Wimereaux and its big sandy beach, perhaps stopping at a seafront cafe for lunch?
The D349 to Hesdin along the river Canche is one of northern France’s prettiest drives. Head north on the D928 to pretty St Omer and its vibrant and historic town square, then the N43 north-west back to Calais via Ardres.

Route distance: 160 miles

Basque Circuit: Spain, France

Start your journey from Bilbao’s port (served by ferry from Portsmouth) at Santurtzi has great motorway connections: Madrid is only three hours’ drive, Barcelona six. But this Basque country circuit makes a more interesting driving holiday. The Basque country seafood is not to be missed, neither is the challenging surfing!

Route distance: 300 miles
