UK MOTORHOME RENTAL SPECIALS: If you place your England or Scotland RV rental booking request with IdeaMerge online, our software will apply any relevant specials from the motorhome hire vendor as well as our own IdeaMerge QUANTUM online RV hire discount.
We use our buying power to offer you big savings versus booking direct.
Book early to secure availability. Many clients book their UK RV hire months in advance. Moreover, said discount tends to be higher the earlier an England or Scotland motorhome or camper van rental booking is made.
Sure, England's famously narrow, hedged and sinuous country roads amount to a rather intimidating proposition, motorhome-wise. This not to mention one's prudent concern, perhaps, about driving a rental motorhome or camper van on the "wrong" side of the road there.
Yet this complexity is more inviting than prohibitive, attending, as it does, the very remarkable complexities of the land and the culture of England.
Add Scotland and Wales to the mix and you have a geographically diverse island Great Britain which truly and heartily lends itself to motorhome travel.
What's more, experienced European motorhomers tend to consider the campgrounds of the England, Scotland and Wales "outstanding" and the "best in Europe." Campgrounds are typically found on the outskirts of the towns and cities and within many villages. Even the most rural village will likely have somewhere to camp for the night. Some UK campgrounds are large and feature all the facilities you would wish for, but a majority are quaintly located on orchards and other farms specially prepared to accommodate RV campers.
Likewise the UK's The Caravan Club (see below) as well as its Camping and Caravanning Club are generally considered the most effective RV travel clubs in Europe.
A motorhome rental or camper van hire is a marvelous way to experience some of England's, Scotland's and Wales' less frequented regions. Yes, Great Britain is relatively small and densely populated, but there are still some areas — akin to the Massif Centrale of France, the north of Spain, Slovenia, Poland, and northern Scandinavia — that are really off the beaten path. These areas include Mid Wales and the Outer Hebrides. Other especially rural regions which naturally amplify the value of your motorhome hire are Cornwall, Devon, Dorset, the Peak District, the Lake District, Cumberland, Northumberland, and the Highlands of Scotland.
All told, England, Scotland and Wales and, we might as well include, Ireland are a rather ideal ground for motorhome travel.
If you live outside the UK you can still get most of the benefits from the UK's The Caravan Club. Enjoy access to a great range of caravan sites in the UK and Europe, discounts on and assistance with ferry travel bookings, and other special offers. There are over 200 UK Club Sites and 2500 Certificated Locations, and over 200 overseas sites associated with The Club. Over half The Club's UK Sites are close to the National Cycle Network. Enjoy exclusive rates at Haven's twenty-three seaside holiday parks in England, Wales and Scotland, featuring dedicated touring and camping facilities and set in some of the most spectacular UK coastal locations. Members save GBP 10 a night on Club sites open to non-members. Moreover, when you join The Club you enjoy full access to Club Together: an online caravanning community. Thereon you can chat, interact, ask questions and review your favorite campsites. (Note that there are a few exclusions to standard member services that apply to members living outside Great Britain: Insurance, UK Breakdown and Recovery services, Legal Helpline, and Member's Club Credit Cards.) To join, or for more information on the suitable motorhome and camper van parks, campgrounds, and camping sites in Great Britain — i.e. England, Wakes, and Scotland — visit The Caravan Club website: www.caravanclub.co.uk. There's no need to be a member to use the Club's online campground directory.
IdeaMerge facilitates the whole RV rental booking process. What's more, you aren't paying extra by going through IdeaMerge. In fact you're paying less than booking direct.

Many factors determine the cost of a motorhome or campervan rental in England. The factors affecting the RV rental cost include RV size, rental rate seasonality (or whether the rates are so-called flex rates instead re-determined daily or weekly based on supply and demand), and the optional extras you select (many and varied).
For exact total costs, submit a Search above. Our online order software will then present to you all the RVs, whether motorhome, camper van or truck camper, ordered by total price.
If you then click on a RV thumbnail image or on the "More Info" text link adjacent to that image, the software will present the following info specific to the RV and dates:
Many optional items are available for hire with an RV rental, and these greatly affect the total cost. The optional items (e.g. camping table and chairs, bedding, shuttle transfer) are presented during our online order process, along with selectable pick-up and return times.
In many cases the RV rental company offers an inclusive package that bundles together a set of optional extras for one relatively low price. Again, don't worry about those packages. Just select à la carte the options you want and our software will apply an inclusive package if such is available and if such package indeed gives you a lower price than actually paying for the options à la carte.
Similarly, RV rental companies often offer specials that involve optional extras. Such specials can be complicated and hard for customers to understand. Again, our software is carefully programmed and maintained to automatically apply any specials that benefit you.
We think our software is unique in terms helping our customers optimize their RV rental and minimize their costs in these important respects. Our aim is to provide you with the best value and to increase our sales as a result.

We do NOT charge a booking fee. On the contrary, we discount our prices far below those of our suppliers.
Likewise but more uniquely still, we do NOT charge a credit card transaction fee. Most of our competitors charge a credit card transaction fee of about 2%! (They bury mention of that fee deep in their Terms and Conditions; search those terms for the word "surcharge" or the phrase "credit card" to see their surcharge acknowledged.)
Furthermore, we do indeed charge your card in the currency you choose above. Thus no unwelcome suprises will be consequent of the charge. The charge in that currency will post to your account in exactly the amount we quoted; and no foreign currency transaction fee from your credit card company can apply to the charge.
We use our guaranteed Super Saver Exchange Rates — meant to be the best retail exchange rates available out there — to arrive at that guaranteed amount (i.e. if your currency is indeed different than the supplier's currency).
To be sure, our Super Saver Exchange Rates are NOT the interbank (i.e. wholesale) exchange rates which the big banks give to each other and which are typically the rates presented by Google and financial websites — and commonly also by our competitors, to give misleadingly low quotes — but they ARE the best rates you as an individual consumer can take advantage of. This is to say, our exchange rates are meant to be considerably better for you than the rates which Visa or MasterCard and the banks use to translate foreign currencies into cardholder currencies.
Most uniquely we offer three payment options in relation to currency, one of which options you can select during our online order process:
Jeremy, USAMy family and I rented a Bailey Autograph 765 from Amber Leisure through IdeaMerge. I chose IdeaMerge because they offered one price for just about everything, I could pay in USD, they were very responsive to my emails and provided a comprehensive service. The only thing I needed to pay Amber Leisure for was the airport transfer, additional propane tank (I asked for it but didn't end up using for a 20-day rental) and their cleaning fee. would not hesitate to use IdeaMerge again.

Vivienne Lister, AustraliaI found IdeaMerge excellent to deal with most helpful and answered all my questions politely and quickly. Motorhome rental in UK from Luton depot. Excellent service in every way pleasant people to deal with and again very helpful. Our Motorhome model was the (Bailey) perfect for two people it served us well, it was clean and in excellent condition. I do think we would get a bigger one next time though as we did get sick of making up the bed each night. Read More
Stephanie Charlebois-Lewis, CanadaWe had perfect service from the initial booking through to the return. Our motorhome was fully equipped for cooking basics with a gas range, oven and microwave. It was our first motorhome experience and we managed 18 days without any issues. I would recommend Amber Leisure and would use them again. Read More
It all adds up to savings and peace of mind.
