Colourful classic VW campervans on hire from Keswick

Vintage Volkswagen campervans make up the colourful fleet at Rainbow Camper Hire. There are split-screens, bays and pop tops, vans that have been pimped up and vans that are authentically pared back. There’s a red van, orange van, yellow van… you get the picture; all the colours of the rainbow are here and, in short, there’s a VW to suit everybody. Each is unique and offers slightly different facilities but what they all have in common, is the way they are lovingly looked after. They are buffed up and kitted out to look good and provide great holidays.

There’s no mileage limit with Rainbow Camper Hire but as their base is in Keswick in the heart of the Lake District, you don’t need to go far to find a scenic spot. By the time you pick up your campervan you’re already immersed in the glorious scenery of England’s most-popular national park. Pootle about the country lanes here or head out to the nearby Yorkshire moors or the Cumbrian coast. Wherever you go in one of these great-looking vans, heads are likely to turn almost as fast as your wheels.

The Owner Says

Put the colour and fun into your holiday with a classic Volkswagen Camper rental from Rainbow Camper Hire. We're based in Keswick, The Heart of The Lake District, a wonderful starting point for exploring the superb countryside of Cumbria, Lancashire, The Yorkshire Dales and Northern England and Southern Scotland. We have a long track record of providing holiday and chauffeured wedding hire and guests who book again and again.

There is no mileage limit or charge and you can take our campervans to any part of the following postcodes starting CA, LA, DG, NE, HG and YO. For longer distances such as the North and West of Scotland, Wales and Southern England please ring or email us before booking - we can often arrange the hire you would like. Just remember to think at Volkswagen camper speed when deciding how far to travel in a day...

With a range of campers sleeping 2 to 6 people, we are confident we have a classic VW camper that suits you brilliantly.

Life in the slow lane - the perfect therapy and contrast to today's hectic pace of life. Relax and step back in time in our seven right-hand drive 1960s' and 70s' vintage Volkswagen campervans.

Price quotes include insurance for the first driver , subject to meeting our insurer's standard conditions as described in our hire terms. UK breakdown cover including recovery is also included. Our pricing is made up of a starting charge for any hire of £150 which covers fixed costs (shown as a compulsory extra when you get a quote) in readying the hire for you. To this we add the nights of hire that you select - Friday and Saturday nights are  little bit more than the other 5 days of the week so choose to avoid them if you are looking for the cheapest quote. We have "low", "mid" and "peak" seasons. Hires can be from a minimum of 3 nights normally (7 nights in peak season) up to a maximum of 21 nights. Dogs are permitted in 3 of our campervans - please ask.

Fabulous experience

Cannot thank Rainbow campers enough for helping to organise and keep the birthday surprise of hiring Robbie. Robbie was equipped with everything we needed to explore the lakes.

Jess #vanlife

Jess was a brilliant camper for two of us to trundle about the lake district for a few days. There was everything we needed all at our fingertips. The hubby loved driving her and I took some gorgeous pics from the passenger side. The best hollibob ever, thanks Jess and Rainbow Campers ❤
