The Vans

First thing is to pick up your trusty steed for the road ahead! All the available campervans are automatic transmission and are hand painted with unique artwork! 

The main vehicle available is The Maverick.

This fantastic Ford E150 sleeps 3 (or 5 with an additional rooftop sleeper) and comes with a dual gas cooker, a compressor fridge, a sink with tap and a drain, a foldaway table, air-conditioning, and a stereo + CD + aux input for MP3.

You’ll also have chance to rent road trip accessories from the campervan depot, such as a Sat Nav, kitchen set (plates, pans, mugs etc), bedding sets, USB charger, aux cable, roof rack and other camping essentials! You can rent these accessories in country or we will put you in touch with the local team once your camper booking is confirmed so that you can pre-book them.

We also have the larger Big Sur which can sleep 3 people and seat 5. It is a Ford T-350 with all the inclusions of the Maverick, just bigger! This is available in all locations, and is also the campervan of choice for all pick ups in Canada!

Departure Points

You can choose to begin your road trip at any of the following depot locations. You can then plan a round trip or road trip one way to another depot! Why not road trip across country from NY to San Fran?

Please note: One way trips of fewer than 30 days may be subject to a one way fee. Certain van models may only be available in select locations. Please contact us for more information.

San Francisco – From San Fran you can head inland and check out Yosemite National Park and Lake Tahoe or venture further towards beautiful Yellowstone National Park. Alternatively you could head down the wonderful Californian Coast and discover waterfront beauty spots and hippy surf towns.

Los Angeles – Kick off in the star-studded streets of L.A. and discover the Californian coast from the south. This is also a great starting point for a cross-country road trip through the deep south!

Las Vegas – The perfect gateway to the Grand Canyon, Mojave National Preserve, Death Valley and a host of other breathtaking landscapes. 

Denver – The most central depot, this is a great spring board for exploration straight down the middle! Head south and tick off Colorado Springs and Breaking Bad’s Albuquerque, or journey north for Rocky Mountain National Park and Yellowstone.

Seattle – The perfect starting point to venture into Canada, Seattle is a fantastic mix of styles and cultures. Head north to the border and discover Vancouver and British Colombia.

Portland - Explore the wilds or Oregon or Washington state and the many National Parks surrounding the city.

Phoenix - Kick off in Phoenix, the capital of Arizona, to explore Tonto National Forest and historic Fort Apache. 

Miami – This southern corner of Florida is a glamorous start to a road trip. From here you can explore the sparkling east coast and hit top beaches such as West Palm Beach and , or discover the southern states of Georgia and sweet home Alabama!

New York – Start in the Big Apple! There is a campsite at the depot so you can collect your vehicle and then head into the city without having to worry about traffic and parking! From here you can venture north and pop across the border into Canada, or head south to Washington DC and Shenandoah National Park. If you’re up for the big one, head west and keep on going! You’ll hit San Francisco in about 3000 miles!

Salt Lake City - Hit the slopes, and pick up a campervan in one of the USA's most famous ski cities! One of the highest state capitals in the country, Salt Lake City is the perfect start point to explore the stunning Rocky Mountains! 

Please note if you would like to do a cross country trip across America the minimum rental duration is 2 weeks.

Canada

Start your driving adventure from our collection points in Vancouver and Calgary and discover Canada's best bits as you travel through some of the country's most jaw-droppingly gorgeous scenery. Start heading north and try out your snowboarding, mountain biking, or kayaking skills in Canada's adventure capital, Whistler, make your way over to Banff and Jasper National Parks, or really see the country and make your way east to Toronto and Montreal*.

*Just remember, if you pick up your vehicle in Canada you must return it in Canada too. And, although you're welcome to hop borders into the USA, you won't be able to drop your Canadian camper off at one of our USA points – the same goes for starting your journey in the USA.

Booking options

We'll email the quote & follow-up with useful offers/updates to help plan your trip. Unsubscribe anytime.

Sometimes we may call if it's easier to talk through your quote.

Arrival information

You can arrange to collect your Campervan from one of the following depots: Los Angeles, Las Vegas, San Francisco, Miami, New York, Seattle, Portland, Phoenix, Salt Lake City, Denver, Vancouver* or Calgary*. You will need to make your way to the campervan depot yourself.

You must collect your campervan at the pre-agreed time on the agreed pick-up date. If you arrive late you may be charged. During check-in you will complete necessary paperwork, be given a tour of the vehicle and its features, and have a chance to ask any questions you may have. Please allow up to two hours for check in.

The vehicle must be returned at the agreed time on the drop-off date. Any drop-offs more than an hour late will be charged a full-day rental charge – so be on time! Please ensure the vehicle is in good condition and you have refuelled the vehicle to the level it was when you received it. Provided that there are no problems with the vehicle, the returning process should take around 10 minutes.

*Please note, for Canadian pick-ups, you will need to plan for a round-trip only.

Accommodation & meals

Your campervan is fitted with a good sized lounge/sleeping area so your accommodation comes with you! You can either bring your own bedding or you can rent bedding sets (sheets, duvets and pillows) as part of your booking. Your campervan has a sink with running water so you can freshen up on the go. We recommend packing light so your living space isn’t overtaken with bags!

Prices can range anywhere between USD7 and USD35 per night.

Alternatively, you can just pull over and free camp. In this case, you must observe all local laws relating to free camping and keep an eye out for ‘No parking’ or ‘No camping’ signs. For comfort and security we recommend you book into campsites where possible.

Meals are not included. You will be provided with a stove so you can whip up some tasty treats on the road. There is also an onboard fridge that runs 24/7 to keep your groceries fresh! Any propane will need to be purchased yourself. A can should last about 7 days.

You will also need need to have a credit card (a debit card cannot be accepted) which will be left on file at the depot when you collect the campervan. A deposit won't be taken from the card, and you'll only be charged if there is any damage to the van when you return it.

Covid safety

This trip is designed with your safety and wellbeing in mind. As a result of Covid-19, many of our suppliers and partners around the world are introducing new policies and procedures surrounding health and safety in response to the Coronavirus outbreak. As the state of travel is evolving these new safety measures will adapt over time, and will be different for each trip. Here are some of the changes you may see on your trip:

Arrival safety meetings
Most trips have an arrival meeting on the first day where the guide or local team will run through the trip, the safety protocols, and to answer any questions you may have. Now more than ever it is important you arrive in time for these meetings.

Updated hygiene and safety procedures
Our suppliers and partners have health and safety procedures in place on all of our trips. These protocols will be updated and adapted as a response to the Coronavirus outbreak, dependent on local restrictions and laws.

Transport and accommodation choices
Our suppliers and partners choose the accommodation and transport on our trips very carefully, and you may see a change to what would normally be used as a response to the outbreak. This may involve such changes as enhanced use of private transport or quieter accommodation.

Trained and knowledgeable staff
Our staff in the UK are trained to help you with your trip before you depart and answer any questions you may have. In addition, the local team and guides on our trips are there to help with any health and safety concerns and to ensure our trips run safely and smoothly.

Reduced group sizes
Some trips will run with reduced group sizes to start with. You may find that trips are more intimate and chilled, whilst still being packed with fun and adventure.

Healthcare
Your guide or the local team will be on hand to help you seek medical attention should you require it during your trip. As medical facilities and standards can vary around the world, you should ensure you have adequate travel insurance in place before you depart to cover you for any medical emergencies.

24/7 emergency support
We operate an emergency phone line for our travellers abroad. This is operated by a UK based member of staff 24/7 if you have a genuine emergency or urgent matter that you need attending.

It is important that you take measures to make travelling safer for yourself and others around you. Ensure you frequently wash your hands, cover your face when you sneeze and cough, bring and use your own hand sanitiser and facial coverings/masks, and enable social distancing where necessary. You should also ensure you listen to the instructions and guidance of the local team at all times, and follow all local laws and restrictions.
