Constance

Constance has a beautifully rustic, solid wood interior and is big enough for a family to enjoy a comfortable holiday, long or short.

Panelled in pine with characterful oak furniture, retro enamel crockery, generous windows and driftwood colours, you'll feel like you're in the great outdoors even when you're inside.

She has an enormous king size bed, full kitchen, a beautiful wood stove and a child’s bunk/hammock that stretches over the front seats. She is on a long wheel base and has five belted seats, so if you throw in a tent there's room for up to five people to run away together.

She even has a gas hob, grill and oven, so whatever your favourite food, you can have it all holiday long - add on the optional camping chairs and table, and eating al fresco will be a delight.

Oh, and did we mention the 240v electrical hookup to charge and run everyone's gadgets (if you want... or deny its existence if you're looking for a digital detox!).

Annual Cover:

Constance has comprehensive insurance specifically for hiring of campervans that covers drivers which meet the following citeria:

Ages: between 23 and  70 years young
Nationality*: UK or EU driver’s licenses
Length held: Minimum 2 years
Points*: Up to two minor offenses in the past 5 years is OK (no more than 6 points)
Claims*: No more than 1 claim in the past 5 years

*NOTE: These items are flexible but the campervan owner will need to refer the driver's details to the insurer and may require some additional information. 

International Drivers from most countries can be covered but the excess is likely to be higher. USA, CA, NZ or AU have always been a yes and often with the standard excess.

The full booking form will ask for all the relevant details but feel free to drop us an email if you have any questions. There is an excess of between £500 and £1000 in the event of any damage to the vehicle. This amount is set by the insurer and is dependant on driver age, convictions, claims and country of issue (for a UK driver with a clean license it will be £500).

Full breakdown cover is also included – details are in the Campervan.
