Online platform enables UK motorhome and campervan owners to easily and safely rent their vehicles
Diverse portfolio of motorhomes and campervans available to hire for UK staycation
LONDON, UK, 2021-May-18 — /Travel PR News/ — PaulCamper, Europe’s largest online platform for motorhome and campervan sharing, has today launched in the UK providing motorhome and campervan owners the opportunity to rent their much-loved vehicles to renters for staycations.
The diverse portfolio, available at https://paulcamper.co.uk gives holidaymakers the option to hire motorhomes and campervans that suit their style and taste at an affordable price.
Prospective campers can hire a camper from as little as one night starting from £70.00. All rentals include fully comprehensive insurance and roadside assistance provided by the AA.
Owners opting to rent out their vehicles via PaulCamper not only benefit from securing a rental income but can also be confident in building a connection with friendly, reliable renters.
PaulCamper was born out of CEO Dirk Fehse’s personal experience of exploring Australia in a rented camper. Upon his return to Germany, he purchased his own campervan – a VWT4 christened “Paul”. To finance running costs and insurance, Dirk rented out “Paul” when he wasn’t out exploring with him and “PaulCamper” was born.
Commenting on the UK launch CEO Dirk Fehse said; “I am excited to launch PaulCamper in the UK today, offering British holidaymakers a range of new and exciting staycation options for this coming summer and beyond.
“I started PaulCamper back in 2013 renting out my own camper “Paul” in order to reduce the running costs and was excited by the idea of making camping possible for those who didn’t want to buy their own motorhome.
“Motorhomes and campervans can be expensive to maintain, coupled with the fact they are often used for just a few weeks a year, spending the rest of the time in the owners garage. It is for this reason I hope UK owners will feel confident in our established offering and choose to rent their campers with us. By way of assurance, in the beginning I too had concerns about entrusting my precious VW to strangers, but in all these years I have only had good experiences.
“Whether a seasoned camper or new to the experience, I hope UK renters will be excited by PaulCamper’s diverse range of motorhomes and campervan’s available for their staycations and I wish them happy camping!”
To book a camper, prospective renters visiting https://paulcamper.co.uk/rent-campervan/ select their preferred camper from the diverse portfolio and send an enquiry to the owner. After discussion, either on the chat facility or by phone, a rental offer is issued and, once both parties agree, the booking is confirmed.
To rent out their camper, owners should visit https://paulcamper.co.uk/rent-out-campervan/ and select list your campervan.
Commenting on the launch, owners Paul and Mel Nash who are renting Bluebell and Bertie out said: “Over the years we’ve built up our Bluebell Farm holiday cottages and, to further enable visitors to have their very own Somerset adventure, we now rent out our two campervans Bluebell and Bertie with PaulCamper.
“We were impressed that PaulCamper is the leading Camper sharing platform in Europe and as an owner that infrastructure was important to us. It’s imperative anyone renting Bluebell or Bertie has a professional, quick and hassle-free experience and we’re confident PaulCamper’s European experience combined with their first-class customer service will offer this to both us and our potential guests.”
The current UK portfolio, which is increasing rapidly as more owners join, comprises vehicles that accommodate everyone from a solo traveller to a family of six and vary in size from a little larger than a car to 8m long. They include an electric van on Orkney, a famous singer’s race-team van conversion in the Peak District, one of the last classic T2 imports from Brazil in the South West, and brand-new motorhomes with all the latest gadgets.
