We had such a good time on our first van hire. Steve and the team made everything so easy. There was such good attention to detail, everything had been thought of and the team were all so helpful. I cannot recommend them highly enough! Thank-you so much for a great time. The only problem is now I don't want to camp any other way... I love these vans! - KATE

Very professional team, very thorough explanation of how to use everything before you take the Campervan away. Campervan was immaculate, extremely well kitted out, a dream to drive and so comfortable to sleep in!! We will definitely hire from Campervantastic again. - JANE

Well done to all the team at Campervantastic . We hired the Yellow Beach for a week and loved every minute of it . The Van came fully equiped with everything we need, except silver foil .... Fridge was excellent and large which was an unexpected bonus ...... VW Campers are fantastic to drive and the these guys really know what they are doing , we highly recommend them. - Mario
