Do your research

The VW California range are the only campervans built by VW themselves. From the engine right down to the kitchen tap, every last bit was designed and assembled by VW engineers. You will NOT find converted builders van here! No dark and dingy campervans with carpet on the walls from us. Only quality, premium vehicles make it onto our fleet. We think this is important to our customers who appreciate a quality product.

Choose your vehicle type

Looking for the original and iconic go-anywhere campervan? Then choose the VW California Ocean. Its compact dimensions means it can venture into the narrowest spots and isn’t bothered by car park height restrictions. Just remember there is no fixed shower or toilet in this vehicle type. We can provide a porta potty should you require it and an array of other extras.

For bigger adventures, choose the VW Grand California. This vehicle has a fixed toilet and shower and is completely self-contained. It’s longer and taller than it’s siblings, still very easy to drive, but you will need to think about car park height restrictions.

The big day!

Check your booking confirmation emails and please only arrive at the time allocated to you. We run a busy collection/returns system and would hate for you to have to wait if you miss your slot.

You can leave one vehicle with us free of charge whilst you are off adventuring. This is in our private facility, behind a locked gate with CCTV. Vehicles are left at your own risk, however.

We will then show you around the many features of your VW California campervan, making sure that you are happy with everything. This usually takes 45 minutes to complete. If you want to get ahead and do some homework you can check out our California Ocean videos or Grand California videos

A quick signature is all that remains and you are free to set off on your big adventure!
