Current Scottish Government Information - Last updated 20th April 2021
The Scottish government announced today that travel to and from the Scottish Islands will be allowed from the 26th of April in line with the opening up of the rest of Scotland. This is great news that responsible tourists will be able to visit in our vehicles.
There was also the announcement that from Friday 16th April travel is permitted out with our local authority, although not for overnight stays. Our plan remains the same to open up for Campervan and Motorhome hire on the 26th of April.
Nicola Sturgeon has confirmed travel to and from the rest of the UK is to go ahead from the 26th of April also.
As always we welcome your queries, please just get in touch if you would like some more information. We are working really hard to contact individuals that have their holiday dates coming up very soon.
Our diary is open for this year and we are looking forward to welcoming our new and returning guests on their Campervan adventures. We are keeping an eye on the media and will update this page and our customers as quickly as possible. We have a very flexible booking policy should Covid affect your trip. You are welcome to move your holiday to later in 2021 or 2022 with no charge. We ask you to get in touch to move dates within 14 days of your holiday commencing (where possible). You are free to move your dates or request a full refund.
This year we urge you more than ever to book campsites well in advance of travelling, remembering to ask for an EHU (electric hook up) with your pitch.
Please help Scotland keep the spread of coronavirus under control by downloading and using the free Protect Scotland app from NHS Scotland's Test and Protect service.
A Massive Thank you
We would like to thank each and every one of our amazing customers who during lockdown had re-booked their trips for later this year and next. We look forward to welcoming you and hearing all about your travel plans as soon as we are allowed to travel again. Can't wait to meet you.
We still have a little space for 2021 holidays, if you are considering a road trip in one of our campervans, then please check we have availability here
Handover and Cleansing Practices
Handover videos will be sent in advance of hires and also shown again at our base before departure.
Hand sanitizers will be available in our new outdoor office.
We are deep cleaning every van using professional antibacterial cleaners, including extras like bike racks and awnings.
There will be longer periods between bookings to ensure high standard of cleansing.
Staff will remain at the advised distance from customers.
Risk assessments will be carried out regularly as the year progresses to protect customers and staff.
Take care and best wishes,
Wendy and the team at Red Kite Campers, Milton of Campsie.
