WHAT’S INCLUDED WITH YOUR MOTORHOME HIRE?

At Niche Motorhome Hire, we believe that your holiday should begin the moment you step inside your Motorhome. Having hired motorhomes ourselves before buying our own we know what things were often missing so ours is loaded with things not usually found in hired Motorhomes.

We also hated all those hidden extras so wanted to be transparent and provide a comprehensive motorhome with only a handful of optional extras. So we have kitted out our vans to a very high specification. You will find everything necessary to make the most of your holiday. We also have a selection of ‘Extra’s’ available to hire with your motorhome.
