Classifcations of Motorhomes:

All classifications are based solely on the age of the motorhome or campervan.

You will pay more for a newer vehicle, but can save hundreds by choosing a slightly older vehicle.

Classification A:   0 - 4 years of age.
Classification B:   5 - 8 years of age.
Classification C:   9 - 12 years of age.
Classification D:   over 12 years of age.

 

The following are all fully included in hire costs shown:

Fully comprehensive motorhome hire insurance with a leading UK company,

Full UK breakdown and relay cover (provided by the AA).

Legal expense insurance (provided by DASDrive) – Legal Advice, help with motoring emergencies, and the provision of a 24/7 advice helpline, when registered.

The first 1,000 miles of all hires are free, (thereafter £O.15 per additional mile).


Please Note: Additional drivers are an additional cost.

EEC hire insurance is also an additional cost and dependant on the number of drivers noiminated.

(Please Note: all hire insurance costs are based upon every drivers age, experience, convition record, accident record over the past 5 years, County of residence, and other pertinent factors).

We can only supply detailed insurance costs once all relevant drivers details are provided.

 

UK VAT requirements:

UK VAT on agents commission fees is required to be added to all Hire Fees (not for the whole amount, but only for the booking fee portion only – booking commission is around 30% of the Hire Cost and UK VAT requirement is 20 % of this figure, or roughly VAT of 6% on the total hire costs). With MHN, you will pay less than a third of the UK VAT required of other motorhome hire companies who own motorhome fleets and who are required to impose 20% VAT on the full Hire Cost.

 

Important Information to Hirers:

Drivers Hire Insurance Restrictions and Criteria: Please note that all insurance costs are based upon several factors including drivers’ nationality, conviction record, driving record and accident history over a specified period required by the hire insurance company. Drivers who fail any of the Hire Insurance restrictions or set criteria will not be covered for insurance cover.

Additional Drivers: All additional drivers up to a maximum of 3 drivers are charged at a basic rate of £8 per day, and are subject to drivers’ nationality, conviction record, driving record and accident history over a specified period required by the hire insurance company. Drivers who fail any of the Hire Insurance restrictions or set criteria will not be covered for insurance cover.  

European Hire: There is an additional cost for EEC Green Card Insurance for all hires out with the UK. The cost of this EEC insurance is £10 per day for the vehicle and one driver. Additional drivers on this policy are £2 per day, again subject to insurance restrictions and set criteria.

 

Motorhome Weight Restrictions:

Driving Licence Categories: Drivers with Category B on their driving licence are authorised to drive vehicles up to 3500kg (Maximum Authorised Mass) in vehicles with up to 8 passenger seats and a trailer not exceeding 750kg. Drivers with Category C1 are entitled to drive vehicles up to 7500Kg (MAM) and a trailer not exceeding 750kg, and drivers with Category C are entitled to drive vehicles exceeding 3500kg (not Heavy Goods Vehicles unless authorised) and a trailer not exceeding 750kg. It is the responsibility of the Hirer and every Driver to which this document pertains, not to drive this vehicle if they are not allowed to do so under UK Law, DVLA driver authorizations or entitlements to drive. Foreign drivers are authorised to drive vehicles in the UK under the entitlement (weight entitlement) of the Country in which they passed their driving test.

 

Music Festivals:

All hire vehicles for Glastonbury and T in the Park Music Festivals are subject to a 30% surcharge. This is due to factors effecting such events such as: higher risk of damage (it is not a campsite that you are visiting where vehicles must be 5m from their neighbour (normal fire regulations in all Counties)- increased fire risk and no normal motorhome facilities available (as you would expect on any campsite) such as toilet emptying, none or little water available (for cooking and toilets), and no hook-ups for electricity - once batteries are discharged they can cause severe problems with onboard systems such as water system, fridge operation, toilet operation, internal heating, and can cause damage to onboard electrical systems and control panels.
