The Camping and Caravanning Club has joined forces with Bunk Campers to offer discounted motorhome rental for people considering an overseas tour.

Bunk Campers has depots in London Gatwick, Edinburgh and Belfast, and offers a choice of motorhomes to hire, from as little as £25.83 per day for driving in Europe.

People can choose either a 2-4 person Vista Plus, or a 4-6 person Grande motorhome. The Vista Plus has a fixed double bed and large bathroom, plus a generous living area. The Grande features an overcab double bed, spacious dining area, fully equipped kitchen and an onboard garage-style storage space.

Equipment includes a gas hob for cooking, an oven/grill, a sink, dining table, shower, toilet, heating and electricity. Each motorhome also comes with an international driving kit (spare bub kit, hi-visibility vest, warning triangle and two disposable breathalysers), a microwave, one refillable LPG cylinder and a bike rack.

Either model is perfect for visiting any of the 17 Club Winter Sun campsites in the new Winter Sun Camping 2015/16 brochure. The campsites are in fabulous European locations, including the Algarve in Portugal, and Costa del Sol or Costa Almeria in Spain.

Alternatively, holidaymakers can join a Club-run European Escorted Tour to some of the world’s most beautiful locations, such as Scandinavia, Iceland, Morocco, Turkey and Italy. The partnership between Bunk Campers and the Club is ideal for non-motorhome owners and also non-members to access the tour programme.

All of these adventures have been carefully crafted, taking explorers off the tourist trail and a step further into local culture, and are listed in the Club’s European Escorted Tours 2015/16 brochure. Please visit www.myccc.co.uk/escortedtours for further information.

Richard Grimsdale, the Club’s Travel Services Director, said: “Escaping the UK for Winter Sun can be just the tonic to help people feel happier and healthier, and thanks to our partnership with Bunk Campers, they no longer need to invest in buying their own motorhome. We offer exclusive deals on motorhome rental, crossings and sites, making an overseas adventure more appealing than ever.”

The Winter Sun Camping 2015/16 guide book costs £10, which is refunded on booking a holiday with the Club. A selection of pages can be viewed online at www.campingandcaravanningclub.co.uk/travelabroad/winter/.
