We had a brilliant time seeing Cornwall in Sandy. Such a lovely van, well equipped and everything was in great condition and good working order. Katy who owns the van was easy to contact when making arrangements. Thank you for a great holiday!

Lovely van … bitter aftertaste

My husband and I had a lovely time in Kate’s van for 3 days. The camper is well looked after and comfortable for two. Unfortunately, the owner charged us £200 for a small scuff to the paintwork, which as far as we were aware did not occur during our holiday. A bitter aftertaste. So, if you decide to hire this van, make sure you take a thorough set of photos before you head off.

Response from Kate's VW Campervan Hire

Dear Camilla Thank you for taking the time to write a review. I am so sorry to hear that your experience has not met with our 5 star expectations. Customer satisfaction is our top priority, and I am truly sorry if you feel that wasn't demonstrated to you. However, following our face to face conversation regarding the scrape on the camper van you stated that although you were not aware there had been an incident whilst the camper van was on hire to you, as you hadn’t witnessed it, you did say that you believed it could have been damaged by a bike. When you first arrived to collect the camper van it was inspected inside and out and the paintwork was noticeably faultless. It was returned 3 days later with a very noticeable scrape which was highlighted and discussed with you straight away. Any damage caused is always going to be an unfortunate and an unexpected extra cost. My deepest sympathy for any inconvenience this has caused you. We wish you all the best in the future.
