Here are some tips for first-time campervan renters in Scotland:
Plan ahead: Make sure to plan your trip in advance and book your campervan rental well in advance. Scotland is a popular destination for campervan travelers, so availability can be limited, especially during peak season.
Check the weather: Scotland is known for its unpredictable weather, so be sure to check the weather forecast before you set off on your journey. Pack warm clothes and waterproof gear just in case.
Plan your route: Scotland has some of the most stunning scenery in the world, so plan your route carefully to make the most of your trip. Be sure to check for any road closures or construction that may affect your journey.
Familiarize yourself with the vehicle: Before you set off, make sure you are familiar with the campervan's features and how everything works. This will save you time and hassle during your trip. Here at Advantures we will take time to give you the full tour and answer any questions you may have.
Respect the environment: Scotland's natural beauty is a big part of what makes it such a great destination for campervan travelers. Make sure you leave no trace and respect the environment by following the Scottish Outdoor Access Code.
Take your time: Scotland is a place to slow down and appreciate the scenery. Don't try to cram too much into your trip – take your time and enjoy the journey.
Stock up on supplies: Make sure you have enough food, water, and other supplies for your trip. Scotland has plenty of small towns and villages where you can stock up along the way, but it's always best to be prepared. A short drive from Advantures HQ there are supermarkets perfect for this.
Be prepared for wild camping: Wild camping is legal in Scotland, but there are some rules you need to follow. Make sure you know the rules and regulations before you set off on your trip. Note : that this is a contentious issue and it is paramount that you follow the rules , we have found some really useful tips here from our colleagues at Go Boony.
Have a backup plan: Finally, make sure you have a backup plan in case of any unforeseen circumstances. This could include bad weather, vehicle breakdowns, or any other unexpected challenges that may arise during your trip.
