It is still possible to hire a campervan if you have penalty points on your licence.
You must declare at the time of booking if there are any endorsements on your driving licence. We are unable to offer driver insurance if driver has had their driving licence endorsed or suspended or more than 2 x 3 penalty points imposed. Failure to declare any accidents or driving convictions invalidates insurance.
There may be a small daily charge for all penalty points.
Do I have to stay at campsites?
One of the great benefits of Scotland is the ability to wild camp. This is the same for campervans.
Official lay-bys that form part of the roads network in the National Park are there to allow drivers to stop and rest on their journey, including overnight. You do not require a permit to stop in a lay-by in the National Park, however please remember that these short-stay stopping points are designed as rest stops and are not suitable for extended stays. If you do choose to stop in a lay-by, please make yourself aware of all road traffic regulations associated with this type of facility.
For more details please Check out the advise on wild camping for campervans and motorhomes in the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park here for your campervan road trip Scotland.
Will we be shown how everything works?
Before driving away in your lovely home from home you will have a full and comprehensive handover demonstration. This will last from 45 minutes to an hour and you can ask unlimited questions so you are happy and feel comfortable with all the features in the van before setting off.
Can I drive on a normal license?
Yes. Whether you passed your test before January 1997 or after, you can drive vehicles up to 3500Kg. All our vans are under this weight.
Can we collect earlier or later that the allotted collection times?
Our diary is set so that we turn our vans over in the same day, customers return the van in the morning and we clean and prepare the van for the afternoon collection. This means we run a very tight schedule to make sure your van will be ready for your hire. Sometimes circumstances allow for an earlier collection, please contact us to discuss this and we will do our best to accommodate your request.
The latest collection we have is 3pm, please contact us should you wish to arrive later than 3pm to discuss if this is possible. Late arrivals / collections maybe subject to a surcharge. Do not book connecting travel such as planes or train tickets unless you have it agreed that we are able to accommodate an earlier or later collection.
