What are the benefits of motorhome hire in Central Scotland?
There are numerous benefits to hiring a motorhome in Central Scotland. One of these is the freedom and
flexibility that a motorhome affords, as you can easily travel at whatever speed you desire. If you want
to spend longer in a place, skip a location, or simply pick a new place to sleep at night at the last
minute, then it’s all possible in a motorhome.
Another huge advantage is that motorhome hire in Central Scotland is extremely cost effective vs other
methods of travel and transport. A motorhome combines your accommodation and transport all in one, so
whilst it might seem expensive at first glance, when you add up all the costs of hotels and car hire /
public transport, you very often come out on top with the motorhome. This is even more true the larger
the group you have in your motorhome, as some of the larger examples can sleep up to seven people. And
lastly, if you hire a motorhome in Central Scotland you won’t need to find restaurants to eat at, or
live off largely unhealthy ready-made food. Instead, you can use the well equipped motorhome kitchen
to cook delicious homemade meals, which drastically lowers your costs and ensures you can buy all
you need from supermarkets.
Motorhomes hired in Central Scotland are also very comfortable and spacious, and hiring a motorhome
means that you can enjoy all your creature comforts as you travel. You don’t need to worry quite as
much about packing sensibly, as motorhomes are ingenious in their use of space and can fit in far more
than you would expect. You have comfy beds that rival hotels, plenty of space, you can stretch out
in your own space and watch TV, and more.
And finally, one of the most common and best reasons to hire a motorhome is simply the fact that it
allows you to enjoy the great outdoors like no other equivalent form of travel. Central Scotland is
home to some of the most beautiful and impressive scenery in the world, and in a motorhome you get to
enjoy it all. Fancy waking up next to a deep and mysterious loch, or sleeping by a glen near a mountain
range? Then a motorhome makes all this possible, and what’s more usually a lot easier than other types
of holiday as well.
Tips for motorhome hire in Central Scotland
We’ll now give you a few tips for motorhome hire in Central Scotland, and ways to make your motorhome
journey even more pleasant:
Plan your itinerary.
It’s really important to have a think about your itinerary before you hire that vehicle. Whilst motorhomes are generally very forgiving towards people who have a relaxed approach to itineraries, don’t forget that some of the activities you might want to do can book out beforehand. Example include ferries to the Scottish islands, the best places to stay at night and so on. Central Scotland is full of sights and campsites that benefit from early booking, not only in terms of availability but also to save costs.
Central Scotland has some small roads.
Related to the point above, if you have planned your trip then you should have a good idea of the size and type of motorhome you’d like to hire in Central Scotland. Central Scotland, and rural Scotland in general, has roads of varying quality, so hiring the largest and most comfortable vehicle does not always lead to the best experience. Be mindful of where you are going, and if you think you are going to be navigating down tiny roads, you could either hire a smaller motorhome, or choose alternative routes if any exist.
Get to know your motorhome before setting off.
Before you hit the road, it’s an extremely good idea to spend some time in the motorhome getting used to how things work. The friendly staff will always be keen to help, and you can test how the vehicle drives in the car park or on quiet nearby roads. Especially if you are a new driver, motorhomes are of course a lot larger, slower and with longer stopping distances than a car. Getting to know it before you head out will make your trip safer for both you and other road users.
Don’t go crazy and bring everything.
Motorhomes can certainly accommodate a lot of items, but they do admittedly struggle with large and bulky items that cannot be folded down to fit in all the available nooks and crannies. By this we mean things like hard shell suitcases, sports equipment and so on. Simply make sure that you bring items that can be folded down and you’ll be alright.
Pack for all seasons.
In Scotland you can experience all four seasons in a day, so make sure you re suitably prepared. You definitely want waterproofs, and either waterproof shoes or a spare set will not go amiss. Because you are in a motorhome, you have the option of bringing some indoor activities to keep you busy should it rain for a day or two - examples include board games, tablets, books and so on.
