Optional Extras

Most items you will need for your holiday are automatically included in the van hire. The following extras can also be supplied if requested at time of booking. Prices are listed on our hire rates page.

Drive-away awning

  • Our Khyam Motordome Classic awnings are highly recommended, as they greatly increase your living space when on a campsite pitch. The awnings include an optional inner sleeping tent, which can be used to provide an extra double sleeping berth if required, or simply used to store some of your luggage and equipment, with the added protected of a sewn-in ground sheet. Khyam's state of the art quick erect technology uses jointed poles which stay attached to the canvas and fold out very quickly (umbrella style). This means the awning can be fully erected and pegged out in just 10-15 minutes, making it the perfect choice when touring. However, the awning really comes into its own if you are spending more than one night at each campsite, as you can simply unhook the tunnel section from your Bongo and "drive-away" when you go out for the day, leaving the awning set up on your pitch.

Camel camping trailer (for use with our "Gower" van)

Families or larger groups will appreciate the huge capacity of our rear trailer. Fully enclosed with high sides and access lock this trailer will provide secure storage for the awning and equipment supplied with your van, plus some or all of your luggage. This will leave the maximum cabin space available for you on your journey to and from site, or on an overnight stop if you decide not to erect the awning. Towing is simplicity itself and no previous experience is required, as we will provide full safety instruction and demonstration when you come to pick up your Bongo. As with any towing vehicle, speed limits are restricted to 60 mph on motorways and dual carriage ways, or 50 mph on regular roads. However, these limits allow you to relax and enjoy your journey, and will also give maximum fuel economy.

Thule bike rack

Attaches to the rear towball and carries 3 bikes. Please note this cannot be used in conjunction with either the trailer or luggage back-box. Given that this is an either/or choice most hirers will find it better to have the extra luggage carrying capacity, and simply hire bikes at local centres when required. If you want more details of local bike hire centres in Wales please ask us for suggestions.

Roof rack bars

Full stainless steel roof bars with double width foam pads, suitable for carrying surfboards or windsurfers. A step ladder can be provided to aid access if required.

Warmer Nights Electric Comfort Pack

Camping in low season can be a real pleasure with crisp clear views, quieter roads, and easy access to popular campsites, many of which have all weather hard-standing pitches and mains electric hook-up. To keep you warm and comfortable in the evenings and overnight we can supply a warmer nights pack which includes:

  • 1-2 kW mains electric fan heater for when you are sat in the van

  • Mains electric under-blankets for cosy nights in either upper or lower berths

  • Fleecy overblankets for extra warmth

In addition our van comes with insulating window covers for the windscreen, front side and rear windows, helping to keep the van warm overnight.

With all these home comforts included, holidays are not just for the summer any more !

Towels and bedding

Most hirers prefer to bring their own bedding and towels. However, if you wish us to supply them please state your requirements at the time of booking, and we will include as extras.

Additional drivers

Our standard hire fee includes insurance for one named driver. Cover for additional drivers is available for a small daily charge. All drivers must meet our insurance requirements.

Station or airport transfers

If you are not driving to our base we can advise on taxi transfers from main line train and bus stations in Newport/Cardiff, South Wales, which offer regular connections to all major UK airports. Alternatively, by changing stations in Cardiff it is possible to travel by train up to our local station in Pengam, from where we can provide a 5 minute transfer to our base.
