£150 secures the hire. If you are booking within 6 weeks of the departure date then payment is required in full to secure the booking.
£750 is payable in advance to cover items such as insurance excess, parking, speeding or congestion fines/charges or any damage to the camper van.

Yes, many of our customers leave a vehicle. We have ample off-road parking. All that our insurance company insists upon is that the vehicle is left at your insurance risk.
As a guide we allow 100 miles a day. Most people going away for 7 days (700 miles) or 14 days (1400 miles) have ample allowance. Longer trips can be individually priced and weekend breaks can be easily catered for once we know your destination. Please do not be put off by this, the allowance is in place to deter really excessive mileage.
Yes, well behaved dogs are welcome for a small fee. The campers are quite compact so you may want to consider the space versus the breed of dog, especially if you are in a party of 3 or 4. We do hire drive-away awnings which offer ‘extra’ useful space.

Hiring a van through Fernweh has been a great experience all round. The process itself was clear and Richard was really helpful with any questions along the way. The van was in great shape and has everything onboard that you need to make life simple and comfortable. The drive away awning was very helpful and made heading out for the day easy. We'll definitely hire a camper van again and would recommend Fernweh.
I couldn’t recommend this company enough. My friend and I booked a camper to go away in November. Due to the current situation we had to cancel and Richard was brilliant and gave us a full refund. We will definitely be booking for next year!
We recently hired a VW Campervan (Ocean/Californian) from FERNWEH Campervan Hire for a 3 day trip to Cornwall. We had a wonderful trip and cannot praise too highly the professional & friendly support provided by FERNWEH. ‘Ferny’ our Campervan was equipped to the highest standards, spotlessly clean (to COVID highest standards), and fully stocked with devices to make our trip all the more comfortable/enjoyable (thanks for the complimentary bottle of wine!). We were provided full instructions/videos and practical advice for anyone unfamiliar with the workings of a VW Campervan, which was most welcome. We have no hesitation in recommending FERNWEH to anyone and I am sure we will be back for another trip maybe to Scotland.
Right from start to finish it was a smooth ride with hiring a VW campervan with this company. Richard was extremely helpful and very responsive with communication. The campervan itself was fantastic, so well equipped. We thoroughly enjoyed our time in Ferny (the campervan) I’m sure we will be taking him away again in the future!
We booked our Autumn trip at Fernweh travel over the summer holidays with the plan at going away at the end of September. The booking process was easy and thorough and Richard was able to answer any questions we had. Prior to the trip, Richard sent a series of videos about the Campervan to shorten the handover when we arrived. We felt very confident that Richard had made the experience covid secure. Unfortunately, our area came under a local lockdown for the weekend of our trip and as a result we weren’t able to travel. I contacted Richard to explain and he was incredibly helpful and fully understood our situation. If you’re looking for a campervan hire, I wouldn’t hesitate to book with Richard and team. We hope to travel on Ferny soon!
We recently spent the week in Ferny from Fernweh Campers on a tour of the Scottish West Coast. The trip was everything we hoped it would be and our first experience of a Campervan holiday! The van itself we couldn't fault at all. Lovely and clean, and well stocked (including a complimentary bottle of wine and a couple of Ales :-)) We also made full use of the bike rack on the rear! We'll definitely hire a camper van again and would recommend Fernweh in a heartbeat!
We had always wanted to try a camper van holiday so in October 2020 we contacted Fernweh. Norfolk beckoned, and as we are in the Covid era we were sent us loads of information in an email, including many video links so that we could learn how to operate and make best use of the van. Woody is of a very high spec, and we only had to add sleeping bags, towels etc, some provisions and stuff for the dog. The drive away awning was a real bonus, as it gave additional store bearing in mind we had quite a bit of rain during our stay. However that didn’t deter us from driving to, and enjoying the fabulous beaches on this coast. The beds were comfortable, and we enjoyed breakfast in the van and evening meals in the awning. Would highly recommend an adventure in a Fernweh campervan.
