There aren’t many limits to where you can go in a motorhome in general. With our insurance, you can travel anywhere you like within Western Europe.
The key thing is to be realistic about how far you want to drive during your trip. Spending five or six hours every day on the motorway is not necessarily the most relaxing holiday. We believe motorhomes are designed for driving somewhere, spending a couple of days there to enjoy the scenery, then moving on again.
Here are the main things to consider when you’re deciding where to go on your motorhome holiday.
There are no mileage limits for our motorhome hire. Although, we do ask where you are planning to go for our own records and security.
You can travel abroad anywhere in Western Europe on our policy. This means you cannot go to North Africa, Eastern Europe or beyond whilst using one of our motorhomes.
There is an extra insurance cost of £100 per week if you are travelling abroad in Europe. It is important to remember that Northern Ireland counts as abroad, too.
If you have any questions about whether your travel plans are covered or not, then please ask. We are very happy to have a conversation with the insurance company to get a definitive answer.
Motorhomes are large vehicles that can be surprisingly economical on motorways. Providing they are not trying to keep up with vehicles in the overtaking lanes, you should get high 20s or even 30 miles/gallon. Fuel economy drops dramatically as speed rises.
Allowing for some slower roads to get to the faster ones, then you should be planning on a 45-50 mph average when you are travelling. This means that a sensible day’s distance would be anywhere from 250 to 350 miles.
When considering where to go on your motorhome holiday, you also need to look at how many days you want at your final destination. There might not be any point in travelling 1000 miles to your destination and 1000 miles home in a week because it would only leave you 24-48 hours to enjoy where you have travelled to! The key here is sensible planning. Allow time for stops and food breaks and make sure you have some options about where you are going to stay overnight.
You can do the length of France in a day (as we have), but would you want to?
Wherever you decide to go in a motorhome, there is a huge area for you to explore and enjoy, and we are very happy to help with planning to see if what you want to do is possible!
