Hi all, First post here (long time lurker), but really wanted to alert other people who may be in a similar situation. I had two motorhomes booked for Glastonbury through National Motorhomes. I originally made this booking as they had refundable deposits and didn't want to risk the amount of money and not get a campervan pass and in the reverse, I didn't want to pay for a campervan pass and risk not being able to get the motorhomes. In the end I booked with another company more local to me once my campervan pass was confirmed, but National Motorhomes had a 28 working day clause to turn around their deposit refunds. Chasing my deposit refund today (29 working days later), I received the following email... The companies house website confirms that Unbeatablehire LTD went into admin yesterday. I'm assuming National Motorhomes was a trading name for unbeatable hire. The National Motorhomes website is currently down. As far as I'm concerned, this was booked with a credit card so I will be fine getting my refund, but just really wanted to alert anyone who thought that they had a motorhome booked when this may not now be the case, or anyone who did similar to me with regards to deposit. I appreciate that administration is not the same as liquidation but this would concern me if I still had a booking intact rather than just waiting on a refund. Don't want anyone else getting caught out by this, especially if they have not been communicating this to their customers.
Has annyone any experience of renting a motorhome or campervan for a festival? Going to Download and from a Google search it looks like there's some good value older vehicles by renting direct from owners via a site called Camptoo, there are others. Has anyone given it a try?
