Have you ever dreamt of hopping into a set of wheels with a few friends and driving off into the sunset, just like in the movies? Road trips are synonymous with adventure: the open road, your hair flowing in the wind, the perfect soundtrack blaring – the dream, right?
Problem is, road trips involve a lot more planning than you might think – finding the best route, great accommodation, fun activities and beautiful viewpoints can be pretty stressful. Amazing Instagram stories don’t just happen by accident, they take time and effort to plan – and this is where we come in.
All you have to do is choose your vehicle and if you like, give us some idea of where you might want to go. Rent one of our spacious motorhomes or one of our stylish VW Campervans, or even a Jeep Wrangler and go wherever the road takes you. Many of our vehicles are dog friendly too so you’ll be able to take your furry friends with you.
So let us take the stress out of the planning for you, and we’ll guarantee you a road trip that’s the Greatest Of All Time!
Once you’ve chosen which vehicle suits you best, you can be as involved as much or as little as you want from that point on. We can give you ideas and inspiration on where to go; choose from our set routes or we can even work with you to create your own personalised route if you’d prefer.
From there, we’ll take care of booking accommodation at perfectly located, tried and tested campsites, and if you don’t want to research what to do once you’ve arrived there, we’re happy to find and add on certain activities for you at each destiantion. So we’ll provide the vehicle, prepare the route directions, maps and tips on where to take that perfect snapshot, so all you have to do is sit back and enjoy – once you’ve had (won) the conversation (argument) about who’s going to do all of the cooking!
All of our VW Campervans comfortably seat 5 adults and sleep up to 4 adults, making them ideal for a roadtrip with friends or your family holiday. The back seats of the main living area fold down into a double bed and the pop-up roof converts into a second sleeping area, perfect for another 2 passengers. For some extra comfort while you’re camping, our campers have a fully equipped kitchen including a sink, 42 litre fridge, and a double gas ring cooker.
If you’re after a bit more room for all the family, consider opting for one of our motorhomes, which sleep up to 6 people. They’re also self-contained so you have everything you need at your disposal – including a shower and toilet, fridge and freezer, an oven, grill and microwave – as well as plenty of storage, so you don’t have to pick and choose what (or who) you take with you.
Our Jeeps provide the opportunity for a completely unique kind of experience and mix the true oudoors with splashes of luxery. The rooftop TentBox elimates the hassle of setting up your tent each night and gives you a warm and spacious bedroom during the cooler months, whilst the Jeep itself can take you wherever you want to go – off the beaten track and off road should you desire.
Whichever vehicle you go for, we provide all of the essential kitchen utensils to make packing for your adventure as easy as possible. For those extra touches we can even supply fresh bedding and towels as an optional extra, making your house on wheels a home.
Our vehicles give you the freedom to explore the beautiful UK countryside in about the most socially distanced way possible. Whether you choose to stay in campsites (we can arrange this for you in our roadtrip packages) or wild camp the whole trip, your level of human interaction is completely up to you. You can stock up with food and fuel to go off-grid for as long as you need.
With our standard COVID cover this means that if you cannot travel for any reason due to COVID you will get a credit that enables you to re-book for as soon as any restrictions are eased. Although it may be sad that you can’t travel as planned, at least you have a great holiday in the bank ready to use as soon as restrictions are eased.

And if you’re wanting something to last a little longer than your trip, head over to our Roadtrip Shop to make sure you’re well stocked and covered with all the gear you need for your future camping and roadtrips too. We have some great deals on selected products, including try before you buy, where you have the opportunity to test out the equipment you’re interested in on your GOAT Roadtrip, before purchasing it.
Just because the days are shorter and you’ve put your short shorts away for another year, it doesn’t mean the roadtrips and fun have to stop. Winter is as good a time as any to travel, and whilst the experience is different to travelling in the peak of summer, there are still plenty of things to see, places to go and things to do.
We understand that for some of you the thought of taking a break in the cooler months may be unimaginable, but trust us – our vehicles are up to the job; whether that’s in the form of thick and cosy winter insulation, powerful heaters or even dry-room storage – we’ve got you covered to make sure you stay toasty and dry throughout your trip.
Head over and take a look at our Camping in Winter blog post for more info – and of course, we’re always here to answer any questions you may still have!
