Motorhome hire Heathrow: What you need to know

Camper van hire Heathrow tips for the savvy traveller

The best course of action is to explore London before you pick up your campervan or motorhome hire, to avoid the inner-city roads and take advantage of the efficient and extensive public transport. Either way, you must organise your Heathrow campervan hire pick up arrangements well in advance of arrival. You must also allow about an hour at the time of pick up to get introduced to the particulars of your motorhome rental.

Some planning tips for your campervan hire Heathrow Airport

  • Most UK toll roads are located in or near London. Be prepared with multiple payment options, including credit cards and coins. Some can be paid in advance. The largest toll road is the M6 Toll, which also goes by the name of the ‘Birmingham North Relief Road’. It was constructed to provide an alternative route and minimise congestion and is completely optional.
  • One-way streets are common so you should always double-check before turning onto a road. Some parts of Central London will cost you a congestion fee. The traffic light sequence in England is a little bit different—it goes: red - yellow - green - yellow - red. At roundabouts, give way to your right. Give yourself more time to stop and slow down.
  • There are several options for campervan parks and campsites on the outskirts of London. Book ahead and plan your route.
  • Make the most of the motorway service areas. These are mini shopping areas in themselves, featuring petrol stations, convenience stores, fast food outlets and WiFi.
  • Keep an eye out for ‘Tourist Information Centre’ signs marked with a lowercase ‘i’ throughout the UK. Featuring maps, guides and other useful travel information, these centres are the ideal places to find out about the best tourist attractions.

Where to go with a Heathrow campervan hire

The Cotswolds

Pick up a Heathrow campervan hire and head west, and you’ll soon find yourself in the Cotswolds Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. These “AONBs” are scattered around the United Kingdom, and the Cotswolds region, covering five counties and an array of small idyllic towns, certainly lives up to such a lofty title.

Stonehenge

UK stonehengeThis mysterious prehistoric monument is a circle of standing stones set within an area full of ancient sites, including several hundred burial mounds. It is still not known exactly who put them there and why. Just glimpsing this ancient structure is an amazing experience.

Bath

This ancient town is famously built on what was a Roman bath or spa, known as Aquae Sulis, and remains an attraction based around the natural thermal hot springs. There is endless history here, and great museums to visit including the Museum of Bath Architecture. Make sure you take a dip!

Stratford-upon-Avon

Famous the world over as the home of William Shakespeare, this mid-sized market town has an unmistakably Tudor aesthetic and is packed with interesting bits of Bard heritage.

Kendal and the Lake District

The Lake District is a dreamy landscape comprising green farmland, rolling hills, majestic mountains, wonderful wildlife, and peaceful waterways. With castle ruins to explore and cosy pubs to enjoy, there is much to keep you entertained in this gorgeous section of the UK.

Do I have to return the campervan with a full fuel tank?

Can I rent a campervan one way from Heathrow?
