Travelling by motorhome throughout Europe is one of life’s great activities. The freedom of planning your own itinerary along with slow travel to some of the world’s most beautiful locations is a highlight.
Hiring a motorhome from afar can be an anxious process. Will the vehicle be the same as what you booked, or will it even be there when you arrive? Is your deposit safe? Are the vehicles well maintained? Will you be able to communicate easily with the hiring company? Is the company a reputable one? Will you be treated with the respect a customer deserves? These questions and many more will no doubt be running through your mind and the anxiety won’t end until you arrive and find everything is ok.
As an Australian, these thoughts were always on our mind when booking, particularly for dates well in advance, and especially when the deposits and final payments are so huge. Having used several different companies, we have now settled on France Motorhome Hire when hiring a motorhome in France.
Once owned and operated by Phill and Hannah Spurge, two ex-pat Brits, they formed and operated a highly professional business. In February 2019, well-known motorhome hire company, Apollo Campers purchased the business and continue to run it as France Motorhome Hire. The English speaking staff also assists greatly with communications and their level of care and attention to detail, to both the customer and the vehicles is exceptional.
Beer and Croissants are well-respected members of the motorhome and campervan community. We have travelled widely throughout Australia, New Zealand and Western and Eastern Europe. We own a Volkswagon Transporter 1998 model in Australia and we hire large motorhomes when abroad.
