Motorhome Hire

Escape-685-ExteriorYorkshire Coast Caravans is a family-owned business with over 40 years experience in retailing touring caravans and motorhomes. We are now adding to this portfolio with the introduction of Motorhome Hire due to popular request.

Three Escape models from the country’s leading manufacturer, The Swift Group, manufactured in Beverley, East Yorkshire, will form our initial hire fleet. Capable of accommodating  between two and five people, there is sure to be a motorhome to suit your requirements.

Our motorhomes really are a home from home with all of the luxuries needed to make your outdoor experience as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. The  fully equipped kitchen with gas oven, hob and grill as well as a large Dometic fridge-freezer and microwave provides a great working space for feeding a hungry family.  Heating and hot water is provided by the Truma combi boiler meaning you can still enjoy a hot shower after a busy day exploring your surroundings. The boiler is capable of working from 230v electric or gas if you are seeking adventure by going off grid! Panoramic sunroofs on each model provide abundant light into the living space and pleated blinds on all windows provide privacy when needed.

When night time comes, there is no compromise on luxury living with ultra comfortable Duvalay Duvalite mattresses on all fixed beds including the new drop-down double bed found in our five berth models. End your evening by curling up in the living room area in front of the 22″ fitted TV before easily converting the seating into a comfortable sleeping space, to get a great night’s sleep ready for the next day’s adventure.

All of our motorhomes come equipped with the following Swift comfort pack:

  • Cruise Control
  • Thule Elite G2 three cycle rack (max 50kg)
  • Cab air-conditioning
  • Status 570 TV aerial
  • Reversing sensors

Motorhome Hire Terms & Conditions

 

We strive to constantly deliver a high quality service with the aim for your Motorhome to be ready, fully equipped and spotlessly clean for your collection. Reading, understanding and applying these TERMS AND CONDITIONS, will minimise distress if unforeseen incidents occur and provide consideration for the next hirer.

1. Driver

All drivers must be between the ages of 25 and 75. All drivers must have held a Full UK licence for a minimum of 2 years. We are unable to hire to certain occupations; please check before booking. We will also need to undertake a DVLA check of your licence. To enable us to do this, at the time of booking we will require either a DVLA check code or your national insurance number.

2. Insurance

Comprehensive insurance is provided for one driver as part of the hire agreement & whilst travelling within the UK. There is a £750 excess which must be paid by the hirer following any incident where an insurance claim is made. Additional drivers can be added at an extra cost of £50 per week. Should you wish to travel outside of the UK (Northern Ireland, Channel Islands & Isle of Man are classed as UK travel) there is an additional charge of £50 per booking. This insurance cover does not include cover for personal belongings. We recommend arranging personal belongings cover for the duration of your holiday.

3. Documents Required

On arrival at Yorkshire Coast Caravans you will be asked to show your motorhome hire confirmation email or booking form and driver licences of any party who will be driving plus two proofs of address i.e. utility bill, no more than 90 days old is acceptable. A bank statement is also acceptable. Unfortunately, a mobile phone or water bill is not an acceptable proof of address.

4. Booking Procedure & Payment

An initial deposit of £250 is required which is non-refundable and must be paid at the time of booking. The balance of your hire money is due for payment 6 weeks prior to the start date of your hire, or at the time of booking if you book less than 6 weeks from the start date of your hire which, will be confirmed by email. The security deposit of £750 is payable on collection of the motorhome. These terms and conditions (including the cancellation policy) become binding at the time of booking. Provided that these terms and conditions have been provided to you they are binding on you whether or not they have been signed by you. Yorkshire Coast Caravans will not hire any motorhome on any other terms and conditions. Payment is by Debit Cards, Bank Transfers or Credit Cards.

5. Security/Damage Deposit

A security deposit of £750 is payable when you collect the motorhome & is taken to cover any damage to the motorhome or damage/breakages of the equipment. When the Motorhome is returned it will be checked over and once deemed to be in a satisfactory condition as agreed, in the same condition it was let out, with the toilet empty, interior clean including all cooking appliances and the fuel tank replenished, this deposit is refunded immediately or directly into your bank account within 5 working days . Yorkshire Coast Caravans reserve the right to increase the security deposit for specific events. We reserve the right to deduct any amount which we determine to be due to us from the security deposit and our opinion as to what is due is binding except in the case of manifest error. Please note that this security deposit is NOT a holding deposit and must be cleared funds before the hirer can take delivery (this is an insurance company requirement). This deposit can be paid by credit card or debit card on the collection day. REFUNDS will be processed in the same manner, provided that the vehicle is returned complete and undamaged, clean and tidy on the inside with an empty toilet cassette and a full tank of diesel. On return, the vehicle will be briefly inspected and a full inspection carried out within 48 hours and, if applicable, damage charges will be deducted from your Damage/Security Deposit (Section 7 below).

6. Damage & Cleanliness

Motorhome parts are not immediately available ‘off the shelf’. It would therefore be appreciated, if DAMAGE is sustained, that you inform us immediately to enable us to take action prior to your return. Whilst we make no charge for occasional small items broken, please inform us to enable a replacement for the next hirer. For the avoidance of doubt, the vehicle needs to be returned in a clean and undamaged condition with an empty waste and water tank. The toilet should be clean and empty with the motorhome filled with diesel. Exterior waxing is not necessary. A charge of £50 will be imposed for a dirty or unemptied toilet. Equally, assessment will be made re stained carpets or upholstery.

7.  Motorhome Hire Cancellation Charges

More than 6 weeks Before: Booking Deposit will be lost. 6 Weeks-2 Weeks: 50% of total hire charges will be lost. 2 weeks-No Show: 100% of total hire charges will be lost

Yorkshire Coast Caravans cannot postpone or transfer money from one motorhome hire to another. Yorkshire Coast Caravans reserves the right to amend our cancellation policy for certain events.

8. Vehicle Collection

Vehicles are available for collection from Yorkshire Coast Caravans usually between 3:00pm – 4:30pm on the first day of your rental period but will be confirmed by email with your booking form. Please allow at least 1 hour for the handover of the vehicle. We want you to enjoy your holiday to the full – time spent in familiarization with your new “home” will help to ensure that you get the maximum benefit from your hire you are advised to check the vehicle thoroughly before leaving our premises. With prior arrangement, one customer vehicle can be left at our premises inside our locked yard although Yorkshire Coast Caravans accepts no responsibility for any damage that might occur.

9. Vehicle Returns

Late returns can have a significant impact on the next hire. All vehicles must be returned to Yorkshire Coast Caravans by 10.30am on the final day of your motorhome hire period (unless otherwise agreed by Yorkshire Coast Caravans). If you fail to meet the return time you will be liable to an extra charge of £50 per hour. Upon return we will check the vehicle for damage, cleanliness, etc., including the condition of the tyres and windscreen which are not included in the Company’s insurance cover and any damage to which is the hirer’s responsibility. There are no refunds for the early return of the vehicle. The insurance provided is only valid for the period of hire thus any late returns would automatically constitute a traffic offence under the RTA – invalid insurance means the main hirer & any subsequent drivers become personally liable for any accident or damage to the motorhome or 3rd party or 3rd party personal injuries.

10. Breakdown

Our vehicles are maintained in accordance with the manufacturer’s instructions. Full roadside assistance is provided and will be explained at handover and is included in your welcome pack. If repairs are required to the vehicle please contact Yorkshire Coast Caravans on 01262 400733 for assistance.

11. Smoking

Smoking inside the vehicle either in the cab area or in the living area is strictly prohibited at any time. Failure to comply with this will result in the forfeit of the security deposit.

12. Pets

No animals are permitted in the vehicle at any time. Failure to comply with this will result in the forfeit of the security deposit.

13. Seatbelts

Our motorhomes are fitted with three point seatbelts. These are to be worn at all times when the vehicle is in motion. Appropriate car seats must be used for children in accordance with the law. It is the responsibility of the hirer to fit any child seats themselves. Yorkshire Coast Caravans take no responsibility for any ill fitted child restraints or seatbelts not being worn.

14. Campsite Bookings

It is the responsibility of the hirer to prebook and confirm all caravan and camp sites they intend to stay at during the holiday. Yorkshire Coast Caravans take no responsibility for any bookings or cancellations at caravan and camp sites.

15. Fuel, Oil, Gas and other consumables

The vehicle is supplied with a full tank of fuel and should be returned in the same manner. If the fuel tank is not showing as full then it will be refuelled and the cost of the fuel plus a £50 admin fee will be charged. The motorhome will be supplied with 2x 6kg gas cylinders. If more gas is required, this is the responsibility of the hirer. In any event both cylinders must be returned with the motorhome.

16. Mileage

A motorhome hire mileage allowance is set at 2000 miles per week each mile in excess of this will be charged out at 15p per mile.

17. Accidents

In the event of an accident the safety of the hirer and their party is paramount. Emergency services should be called first if necessary and the accident dealt with in the necessary manner. Only after everyone involved in the accident is safe should the hirer contact the company if necessary and then try and minimise loss to the company if it is safe to do so. Regardless of how minor the accident may seem, full details of anyone involved need to be noted down in the accident report form which is kept in the vehicle. This is the responsibility of the hirer. If the accident is of a serious nature, causing any damage to the vehicle, another vehicle or third party, then the company must be informed. You are provided with a first aid kit a fire extinguisher & a fire blanket. Please do inform us of any use of any of these items so that we can replace them. Failure to do so may cause a hazard for future hirers. Once again Yorkshire Coast Caravans request all parties have their own personal travel insurance.
