Here’s some essential information for RV travellers in United Kingdom
Fuel in Scotland is slightly more expensive than other European countries. Fortunately, it’s also relatively small so you’ll use less petrol during your campervan hire in Scotland. Plus, our Indie campervans run on diesel — a cheaper choice.
Knowing the rules of the road is essential for a campervan hire in Scotland. In urban areas, the limit is 30 mph (48 km/h) unless otherwise indicated. Elsewhere, it’s 60 mph (96 km/h), while on motorways and dual-carriageways, the limit increases to 70 mph (112 km/h).
Highways here are generally in good condition. The only trouble you may have when driving your campervan in Scotland is with animals on the road, weather changes, and rural roads that are one lane with passing places. There are also fewer petrol stations in the countryside so keep your motorhome topped up if travelling to remote areas.
There are no toll roads or toll bridges here — an added bonus for a campervan hire in Scotland!
While wild camping is legal here, unfortunately for your campervan hire in Scotland, that doesn’t include motorised vehicles. However, camping informally, not at a campsite, is more or less tolerated if you do so responsibly and seek the landowner’s agreement first. Avoid parking your campervan or motorhome overnight in Scotland within sight of houses or blocking access to tracks or fields. And there are plenty of campsites around if you’d prefer a night with all the necessary facilities.
As the value of the pound has dropped in recent years, the UK is an increasingly budget-friendly travel destination. Groceries are cheap in Scotland while a standard pub lunch will cost you around £10 and a pint around £3.50 — cheaper than elsewhere in the UK. Of course, with an Indie campervan hire in Scotland you’ll be saving money on accommodation.
Comedian Billy Connolly said “There are two seasons in Scotland: June and Winter”. But that’s not entirely true. In fact, you can easily encounter all the four seasons in one day. So, be prepared for any weather conditions, including sun. And if it rains (which it will), remember that’s one reason why the whisky is so good in Scotland.
From Aberdeen Angus steaks to seafood, from black pudding to haggis (of course), Scotland may be home to the deep-fried Mars Bar but it has plenty of more refined food for you to enjoy during your campervan road-trip. You should also enjoy a dram or two of whisky. Or there’s that ‘other national drink’, the alarmingly orange IRN BRU. Don’t knock it ‘till you’ve tried it.
Situated just 32 kilometers from mainland Europe, the United Kingdom comprises four nations: England, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. They share a temperate climate, with mild winters and cool summers, although it’s often said that you can experience all four seasons within a single day whatever the time of year. The average temperature in the winter months of November to March is 3-9°C, with February usually the coldest. It’s rare for daytime temperatures to fall below freezing for long, and by wrapping up warm it’s possible to enjoy any of the sights you might consider to be summer-only destinations, such as the Yorkshire Dales.
The other important item to pack for anyone wanting to hire a campervan in the UK is an umbrella. Rainfall is fairly consistent right throughout the year. The period from April until September is the driest, and corresponds with the UK summer. Summer temperatures range from 10-20°C on average. It can be significantly warmer in the ‘Home Counties’ around London, where temperatures are closer to 24-28°C.
Autumn sees the evenings close in and temperatures begin to drop, but it is also one of the most culturally significant times of year, with Guy Fawkes Night celebrations a major focus. Spring can be equally unsettled, but receives a welcome boost to sunshine hours, helping to animate events around Easter, from pancake tossing competitions to well-dressing festivities in the villages of Derbyshire. Spring is therefore a superb time to hire a campervan in the UK. By then trails in the country’s plethora of internationally-renowned national parks have dried, yet rental prices are still (with the exception of the two weeks around Easter) low compared to the July and August peak.
