Hire my Caravan

If you own a caravan, it is likely that you want to share the fantastic experience of caravanning with others. Maybe you are only able to use your caravan for certain parts of the year and are happy for others to use it at other times. Or perhaps you own a caravan specifically for hiring it out. Whichever the reason, there are a few things you may be wondering, such as:

  • Where can I hire my caravan out?
  • What does it cost to hire my caravan out?
  • What else do I need to know to hire my caravan?

Where Can I Hire my Caravan Out?

There are a range of companies in the United Kingdom that specialise in bringing together caravan owners that are looking to hire out their caravan. Some of these focus specifically on caravans, others also offer mobile homes, motor homes, campervans and holiday homes or villas for rent. You can find these types of companies through the internet as well as through travel agents and it is important that you list your caravan in a variety of places to have maximum exposure.

What does it Cost to Hire my Caravan Out?

If you are wandering what is costs to hire your caravan out, the answer to this will depend on a variety of things. Certain companies will charge you a listing fee, but they will generally give you a range of benefits in return for this, including caravan club membership, higher exposure and some forms of insurance. A listing fee can be charged either by advertisement, per month or per year depending on who you are advertising with. If you advertise your caravan in a travel agent brochure, for example, you are likely to be charged a one off cost that you will need to repeat for any subsequent publications.

What Else Do I Need to Know to Hire My Caravan?

There are a number of other things you need to know to ensure that if you ask people “would you like to hire my caravan”, their answer will always be a wholehearted yes. This all has to do with having excellent people and customer service skills. Be sure to listen to requirements that people sometimes have – for example by reading reviews of other caravans and checking what people appreciated and what they did not appreciate, so you can be sure that your caravan is up to an excellent standard. Also ensure that your caravan is always clean and of good quality. If people hire your caravan and enjoy it, it is likely that they will recommend you to their friends and come back themselves, generating you a very nice steady income. There is no better advertisement than word of mouth, so ensure you keep people happy, even if they only contact you with an enquiry, as they are likely to discuss their experience with others.

As you can see, if you are thinking about hiring your caravan, there are a number of things to take into consideration but the most important thing is by far to keep your customers happy, ensuring a steady rise of happy, returning holiday makers.
