Yes, it's here! After more than a decade of recommending the very best camping and glamping sites in the UK and Europe, Cool Camping has now officially launched a new campervan hire collection, just in time for some much-needed travel planning for 2021.
Enjoy the ease of a well-equipped campervan or motorhome and the freedom of the road, with live availability and instant booking for over 100 vehicles across the UK and some further afield, including Spain, France and the Channel Islands.
This new campervan collection will continue to expand rapidly, with a further 100 vehicles set to be add in the next month, offering a growing choice of vehicles in keeping with the Cool Camping slow travel ethos. The campervans on offer come in all shapes and designs, from colourful 1970s VW campers and converted Land Rover Defenders to more modern campervans and family-friendly motorhomes for those in need of a little more space and luxury.
To match campers with the right van, you can search by dates, people and pick-up location, as well as browsing out useful collections, including Dog-Friendly Campervans, Classic Campervans, and Motorhomes and RVs.
What’s more, once the van is booked up, campsites along the route can all be booked easily too. So, from start to finish, you can plan your perfect holiday in one place, finding a dog-friendly campervan with a surfboard rack and room for two, before browsing campsites on the coast that welcome pets along too, and all from the trusted folk that have been reviewing the coolest way to camp for 15 years.
