VW Camper Van Hire - Freedom Of Travel

Try a VW camper van hire for a change the next time you head out to explore the world. The legendary and compact VW camper vans have been around since the late 1950's, they look great, drive like a dream and will take you places other larger campers cannot reach.

It's the freedom of traveling where you want at your own pace. Wake up to the sound of the waves on the beach instead of the maid's cart. Skip the crowded restaurants and cook your dinner watching the sunset out in the great outdoors.

Don't believe me? Well I drive one of these great vehicles and I could talk to you for hours about all the adventures.

My wife and I even got married on the wonderful Greek island of Crete and spent the night of honors on a far away beach. Neatly tucked under pine trees with absolutely no one around us. Yes, in our VW camper van of course...

And it was a unique and memorable experience both of us will never forget !
