Motorhome and campervan owners can put cash in their pockets with the launch of an online platform in the UK.
PaulCamper, Europe’s largest online platform for motorhome and campervan sharing, has launched in the UK providing motorhome and campervan owners the opportunity to rent their much-loved vehicles to renters for staycations.
Prospective holidaymakers can hire a camper from as little as one night starting from £70. All rentals include fully comprehensive insurance and roadside assistance provided by the AA.
The current UK portfolio 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.
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.
He says: “I am excited to launch PaulCamper in the UK, offering British holidaymakers a range of new and exciting staycation options for this coming summer and beyond.
“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 owner’s 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.
Owners Paul and Mel Nash who are renting out Bluebell and Bertie 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.
“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.”
