I used Easicampers back in May/June 2022, so I'm a little late with my review! We hired for almost a week and got the Ford Zefiro 675. We picked up from Wigan, so a bit of an initial drive to pick up and eventually drop off when going from Manchester, but nothing too major.Our trip was down to herefordshire for a small festival, where the motorhome was primarily for living in rather than travelling. Upon pickup, the staff were very friendly, and as I'd never driven a motorhome before, they took me round and showed me everything I needed to know. Myself and the staff member encouraged taking any pictures of scuffs just in case we need to show evidence that they were there before the trip (I can confirm that we had no issues like this when dropping off).The vehicle already had half a tank of diesel, and that got us a long way. Everything was clean and like-new. The handing over process was simple, but careful to ensure we knew everything expected. Dropping off was far quicker than we thought, as we had already done a lot of cleaning and staff were very happy to tick it off and wish us a good day.Overall, an excellent experience. I hope to book again this year for the same trip. Thank you!

Their Fiat Toledo campervan for 2 with toilet and shower is very ideal for couples. The set up bed is comfortable and large for 2 sleepers. Easicampers is a better deal and excellent service during our Scotland trip from 27 September to 5 October 2023. They provide service to and fro for us from Man Airport to Wigan to collect the van. Excellent and responsive service.Highly recommended 5 stars service for campervan rental with Easicampers. I thanks Mike, James and colleagues for picking and sending us to Airport, Kellie for the fast rental contract processing and lend us a big umbrella ☔. Definitely a good choice for your campervan rental.Thank you all Easicampers staff.Kheng Joo from Singapore.

We hired from Easicampers Wigan a two berth Fiat Toleno and the whole process couldn't have gone any better. The staff at Easicampers were extremely helpful, the hand over and return were very straight forward & the camper van was spotless and perfect for us.The two of us and our dog went all around Scotland and I cant thank Easicampers enough for making our holiday booking so straight forward. We will certainly be using you again & again for our camping holidays in the future.

We hired a 6 berth Ford Zefiro van from the Wigan branch . Lisa and her team are fantastic they made the pick up and drop off very straightforward and painless ! We had a fantastic experience taking the kids to see Scotland , stayed at some lovely touring sites . The van was immaculately clean and comfortable and the handover was very thorough and not rushed at all so we were confident as soon as we drove off .

Exploring Manchester

Manchester is one of the UK’s largest and most vibrant cities – and while it’s probably best known for being home to two of the biggest and most popular football clubs in the world, it’s got a real wealth of character and experiences for you to take in – and what better way to take a tour of the city and surrounding area than with a campervan or motorhome hire from Easicampers? With a simple pick-up from Manchester Airport, roaming the city’s culture and history on four wheels has never been so comfortable – nor so affordable!

Things to see and do in Manchester

There is plenty to do and see in Manchester. As one of England’s most diverse and lively cities, Manchester boasts an ever popular night life and offers opportunities to explore its surrounding landscapes. There is a lot to learn about Manchester’s history, for exaample its world-famous Industrial background, its famous music achievements and Sporting success (Manchester United FC and Manchester City FC). There is literally and endless list of things to see, learn and experience.

Just a 15 minute drive away from Manchester City Centre is the Trafford Quays Leisure Village. At the Trafford Quays Leisure Village you can experience a range of activities such as adventure golf, skydiving and skiing – there is also a large children’s amusement centre for the younger members of the family.

Manchester has an extensive history, so if you’re interested in history you may want to visit a very historic building called the Chetham’s Library. Manchester’s Chetham’s Library dates back to mid 1600’s and has the distinction of being the UK’s oldest public library. And less than a 10 minute drive away you’ll find Ordsall Hall, a Grade I listed Tudor building dating as far back as 1177. Many say Ordsall Hall is haunted, and also carries the rumour of being the location in which Guy Fawkes hatched his plan for the infamous gunpowder plot.

A lot of tourists exploring Manchester and its surrounding towns will no doubt explore the Pennines. The Pennines offer natural beauty, narrow valleys, and beautiful green hills. The Pennines is an absolute must see in your campervan or motorhome! With so much to offer you must experience Greater Manchester and beyond in a Motorhome or VW Camper from Easicampers.

Driving advice for Manchester

Our Easicampers Manchester team have put together some helpful driving advice:

– The A56 (especially Bury New Road) which is to the north of city is one to avoid during the hours of 8AM – 10AM and 4PM to 6PM. We would also relay the same advice for the A6 (especially Buxton Road).
– A very common route is the M62 motorway from Manchester to Leeds (Manchester is very well connected). The M62 Southbound can also take you to Liverpool. We advise you to check the live traffic updates before your travels so you can find out the quickest route to your destination.
– We must advise you that if you’re travelling on the M6 motorway, have some spare change to hand as there is toll charges.
– Speed restrictions in Manchester are the same as the rest of the UK. Unless specified otherwise, stick to 70 mph on motorways and dual carriageways. The speed limit can drop to 60 mph on certain carriageways and the standard speed limit on residential roads is 30 mph (or 20 mph where signposted).
– Should you drive into the Pennines or the Lake District National Park wild animals may be crossing roads or be apparent around tight bends so please be vigilant!

Our Campervan and Motorhome Fleet in Manchester

California Ocean – Automatic
Our VW California Oceans are top-of-the-range, new T6.1 models with automatic gearboxes. They come with an awning and a bike rack for 4 bikes, 2 chairs stored in the boot section and an outside table cleverly stored in the sliding side door. There is a small kitchen with a hob and a fridge. Sleeping is for four people. The kitchen is equipped with all the pots and pans you need and utensils, plates and mugs.

Grand California – Automatic
This is our flagship model and the pride of our fleet. And the most expensive!!!

They are an amazing bit of kit and do everything that the California Ocean does only better!

These are our brand new models for 2024 and are ideal for wild camping as they too have a bathroom on board and a kitchen with a fridge. They are fully equipped for your wild camping around Scotland and the Western Isles. They are ideal for the narrow lanes around the islands.

Imala 4 berth / Zefiro 6
The Imala 4 berth and the Zefiro 6 berth are our bigger motorhomes, ideal for families and are fully loaded with all that you need.

The benefits of hiring a motorhome compared to booking a hotel room

• Hotels are very expensive and you would need 3 rooms for 6 people whereas a six berth motorhome is a fraction of the hotel cost.
• A camper is really a hotel room on wheels so rather than hire a car and use hotels it is much better to hire a campervan.
• You always get a sea view from a campervan !! The view is where you park it.
• You are completely independent and off grid and you can legally wild camp in Scotland so the scenery is spectacular.
• All our motorhomes are new and have all the comforts of home.
• Breakdown covers all vehicles.
• Unlimited mileage

BEST TIME TO HIRE A CAMPER OR MOTORHOME IN MANCHESTER

It is always cheaper to hire campers and motorhomes off-season. Our peak periods are July and August and these months are more expensive. We are open all year so autumn, winter, and spring are always the best times to get bargains, often half the price of summer. All our motorhomes are suitable for cold weather camping.

WATER, WATER EVERYWHERE

Yes, water is very plentiful in the UK, but you need to make sure you have enough on board when you collect your camper or motorhome from our Manchester location. We can fill the freshwater tanks for you but if you are going to a campsite for your first stop it may be an idea to fill up there as water is very heavy and can lower fuel consumption. Be very careful with your waste water as this can only be emptied in designated places. Please refer to www.campa.org for a full list of disposal points for all your waste. Keep the environment Tidy. Please leave it as you found it.

STOCKING UP WITH GOODIES FOR YOUR ROAD TRIP

Stocking up on food and essentials for your motorhome adventure from Manchester is important. If you are heading into the wilderness or to an island you will need to stock up with food and drinks. Your camper or motorhome comes fully equipped but you will need to buy food and drinks. There are lots of supermarkets in the area and our staff will point you in the right direction to stock up on goodies. Asda is just a five-minute drive away from us, which is ideal for a big shop with everything you need. Our staff will point them out to you.

NEAREST FUEL STATION

Just down the road from our Manchester Branch is a fuel station where you can buy diesel and AdBlue. It is important when you return the motorhome that you replenish the diesel and AdBlue at the same level you collected it on. To find the fuel station just drive out the depot turn left, travel to the end of the road and turn left again and you will see Shell garage in front of you.

CAMPING NEAR MANCHESTER AND BEYOND

If you want to make your first stop nearby while you get used to the motorhome there are lots of local sites. It is worthwhile, and not very expensive, to join the Caravan Club or the Camping and Caravan Club. Both these organisations have superb campsites and being a member allows discounts to be given. Nearest site to us is Hollybank Caravan park and another nearby is sycamore Caravan site

SITES FURTHER AFIELD

Green Meadows Retreat, situated amidst lush countryside near the Peak District. This top-rated site provides spacious pitches, modern facilities, and breathtaking views, whether you seek tranquillity or adventure.

If you are venturing into Scotland you have the opportunity to do some wild camping. Unlike the rest of the UK where motorhomes must stop at designated camp sites. We do need to be careful to retain this advantage in Scotland and it is worrying that some inconsiderate campers are leaving rubbish behind in beauty spots and not clearing up after themselves. This spoils it for everyone and Scotland may stop wild camping if inconsiderate people destroy the natural beauty. Please leave the area as you found it and if you see litter left by others please be good enough to pick it up.

A BOOK TO BRING WITH YOU

I can recommend Martin Dorey’s book “Take the Slow Road, England & Wales” this book will show you the best driving routes around England and Wales for campervans and motorhomes, along with some of the coolest places to stay, where to go and what to do. It is a wonderful book available on Amazon and I would recommend buying it weeks before your trip so you can plan some of the wonderful places he recommends. Don’t forget that campsites get fully booked very early in the season so plan well ahead.

CLOTHING AND OTHER ESSENTIALS FOR MANCHESTER

As you must know the UK can be very wet as well as being very beautiful. This is what attracts so many people to our wonderful country. If you need waterproof clothing and hiking gear, there are lots of places nearby that supply these essential supplies. I would recommend “Sports Direct” and our staff will point you in the right direction. The city center is also loaded with outdoor shops such as “go outdoors” and Mountain Warehouse. My favorite is “Camperlands” Manchester which is just a 6-minute drive away from our branch.

ENGLAND AND WALES NATIONAL PARKS

England and Wales boast a collection of stunning national parks, each with its unique charm and natural wonders. England hosts ten national parks, including the Lake District, known for its serene lakes and dramatic fells, and the Peak District, offering rugged landscapes and picturesque villages. Dartmoor and Exmoor in the southwest captivate with wild moorlands and ancient tours.


Wales, on the other hand, boasts three national parks, with Snowdonia standing out for its towering mountains, pristine lakes, and diverse wildlife. Brecon Beacons, known for its dark sky reserve, provides breath-taking stargazing opportunities, while Pembrokeshire Coast entices with rugged cliffs and pristine beaches.


These national parks serve as havens for outdoor enthusiasts, offering a myriad of activities like hiking, wildlife watching, and water sports. Rich in biodiversity and cultural heritage, England and Wales’ national parks provide a sanctuary for nature lovers and a playground for those seeking adventure in the lap of natural beauty.

BEACHES AND LOCHS NEAR MANCHESTER

While Manchester itself is landlocked, enchanting beaches and serene lochs are easily accessible within a few hours’ drive. Head west to discover the stunning beaches of North Wales, such as Rhyl and Prestatyn, offering golden sands and refreshing coastal views. For a tranquil loch experience, venture into the scenic Lake District in the east. Windermere and Coniston Water showcase crystal-clear waters surrounded by picturesque landscapes. These idyllic retreats provide a perfect escape from city life, allowing Mancunians and visitors to enjoy the best of both worlds.

ISLANDS TO VISIT IN YOUR MOTORHOME

Take advantage of unlimited mileage with a trip to the Scottish islands, fronting the North Atlantic Ocean. Use Caledonian MacBrayne ferry services starting at Oban. Oban itself is a fascinating town with lots to see and do. It is the gateway to the islands.


Why not visit the islands of Barra, Uists, Harris, and Lewis for a start. These islands are beckoning travellers to immerse themselves in uncharted territories and untouched vistas. Prepare to be entranced by the ever-changing landscapes, secluded hideaways, and the welcoming embrace of Barra, a compact haven spanning a mere five miles in breadth and eight miles in length, which reveals its treasures. Nestled within the tranquil bay of Castlebay lies the formidable Kisimul Castle, while the island’s airport boasts an unconventional charm, with aircraft gracefully descending onto the sandy expanse of Cockle Strand. Loganair fly here most days so it is exciting to go and watch these Islander aircraft land on the beach.


Continue your voyage to Eriskay and unearth the captivating tale of ‘Whisky Galore’, where islanders salvaged a trove of 250,000 bottles of whisky from the wreckage of the SS Politician. Traverse northward through the captivating causeways of the Uists and Benbecula, where breathtaking vistas await at every turn.

For golf enthusiasts, the renowned Askernish golf course in South Uist offers a sanctuary amidst rolling sand dunes and panoramic ocean views. The western coast beckons with miles of pristine beaches, enticing adventurers and nature enthusiasts alike.


Journey onward through Benbecula and North Uist, where untouched beaches, verdant meadows, and serene lochs punctuate the rugged terrain. Nature enthusiasts can revel in birdwatching at the RSPB Nature Reserve in Balranald.

Cross the brief ferry passage from Berneray to Harris. Encounter dramatic landscapes and secluded beaches, including the renowned stretches at Luskentyre, Seilebost, and Scarista.

As you venture towards Lewis, rugged mountains give way to expansive moors and tranquil lochs. Explore the rich heritage and culture, from the ancient Callanish Standing Stones to the storied Blackhouse and Carloway Broch.

Bid adieu to the bustling capital of Stornoway as you embark on the ferry journey to Ullapool, reflecting on your Hebridean escapade aboard your trusty motorhome. Sit back, relax, and savor the scenic drive back to Glasgow, cherishing memories of your extraordinary journey and eagerly anticipating future adventures in the heart of the Hebrides.

EMBARKING ON YOUR JOURNEY FROM MANCHESTER

Embarking on a road trip with your Easicampers Motorhome from Manchester opens up a plethora of exciting destinations. Start your journey by heading north towards the Lake District, an iconic national park with breathtaking landscapes. Explore the charming towns of Ambleside and Keswick, and cruise along the scenic roads surrounding Windermere. With your motorhome, you have the flexibility to park amidst nature, waking up to stunning lake views.

If coastal adventures beckon, venture west to the shores of North Wales. Relax on the sandy beaches of Rhyl and Prestatyn or explore the historic Conwy Castle. For a touch of wilderness, Snowdonia National Park offers awe-inspiring mountain scenery. Park your motorhome by serene lakes like Bala or Tal-y-llyn, creating a perfect base for outdoor activities.

Eastward lies the Peak District, known for its diverse landscapes. Visit the charming village of Castleton, surrounded by limestone peaks. Hike to Mam Tor for panoramic views or cycle along the Tissington Trail. Your Easicampers Motorhome allows you to choose campsites nestled in the heart of the Peaks, providing a cozy retreat after a day of exploration.

For a cultural and historical escapade, head south to Stratford-upon-Avon, Shakespeare’s birthplace. Explore the Tudor-style architecture, visit the Royal Shakespeare Theatre, and meander along the River Avon. Motorhome-friendly sites like Riverside Caravan Park offer proximity to the town, ensuring a seamless blend of history and modern comfort.

For a coastal route with a touch of elegance, consider heading to the English Riviera in Devon. Park your motorhome near Torquay or Brixham and savor the picturesque harbors, sandy coves, and seaside promenades. Enjoy water activities or simply unwind on the beaches of this stunning coastal region.

Alternatively, venture towards the enchanting Cotswolds, known for its quintessential English villages and rolling hills. Explore Bourton-on-the-Water’s charming bridges, visit Stow-on-the-Wold’s antique shops, and experience the idyllic countryside. Motorhome-friendly campsites in the Cotswolds ensure a peaceful stay amid the scenic beauty.

Whether you seek the tranquility of nature, the allure of coastal landscapes, or the charm of historic towns, your Easicampers Motorhome from Manchester provides the perfect platform for an unforgettable road trip. Embrace the freedom of the open road, create your itinerary, and let the adventure unfold as you explore the diverse and captivating destinations awaiting you within a drive from Manchester.

AVOIDING ACCIDENTS

You may have realised that out on the mountains and around the country side the roads can be VERY narrow, sometimes only suitable for one vehicle. Accidents happen when one vehicle runs into another and can cost you, the customer, a lot of money- up to £2,000.00.

PLEASE give way to other vehicles where the roads are very narrow.
I always advise customers that if a vehicle is approaching and you both can’t fit then STOP. Do NOT try and squeeze past as this will damage the whole side of the vehicle. If you stop they will cause the accident not you. They ran into you. Please be patient and ignore vehicles behind you. They will not pay for damage.

Just stop and if you have to get out of the vehicle to help the other driver pass then do so. Better to stop and hold up traffic for a few minutes than ruin your holiday with a damaged vehicle. Driving an unfamiliar and large motorhome is daunting at the best of times but once you leave the beaten path and are out in the wilds then please be very careful.

Our friendly hire team will show you around your motorhome or campervan before you drive away.
