So, who’s trying for Glastonbury tickets next weekend? (we are, finger’s crossed!).
But, if you don’t manage to bag yourself a ticket, don’t fret, as there are plenty of others to choose from. With festivals popping up here, there and everywhere, so too are companies offering campervan hire services. And if you want to camp in style, there’s really only one choice: the classic VW campervan.
Comfortable, convenient, and super, super-cool, the VW campervan is synonymous with festival-going, having earned a reputation for itself over the years as the ultimate ‘hippy’ mode of transport. If you want to bag yourself one for next year’s jaunts, below are a few campervan hire websites worth taking a look at:
O’connors Campers has a huge range of VW campervans available to hire, meaning you can take your pick from an array of different colours and models. The vans range from 2 to 6-berth and all feature a mini kitchen, roof rack, CD player, fridge, awning, and a trusty handbook just in case you’re a VW-newbie.
Comfy Campers has a collection of four, 5-berth VW campervans from the 60s/70s. Each camper is offered with unlimited UK miles; just in case you fancy doing a bit of pre-festival exploring (or post-festival exploring, if you’ve got the energy!). What’s more, every caravan comes stocked-up with tea, coffee, sugar and all the utensils you’ll need to cook up some great grub.
Wye Campers has three, 60s/70s VW campervans available to hire: Daisy, Harmony and Terrance. Each campervan comes equipped with camping essentials and there’s also a huge range of additional extras you can purchase for an extra charge, such as bedding, tents, food hampers and towels.
