Responsible Camper Hire

Red Kite Campers aim is for everyone to have an enjoyable trip.  We care about doing things properly and want people to have having an amazing experience when hiring with us. 


We have a lot of return visitors and also first timers who have never tried campervanning before.  Our aim is to be as informative as possible before and at pickup and to be available anytime you have a query whilst away on your trip.


We are also members of an organisation called CaMPA.  Their website is a point of reference for guidance on how to safely and correctly travel in your campervan or motorhome when in Scotland. Three key topics focused on in their website is safe driving, waste disposal and overnight camping.  The website is also aimed at individuals who want to know the facts about what is/isn’t recommended.  Here is a link to their site.

All our vehicles are gas safety checked by qualified engineers annually for their landlords safety certificates.  In addition to this all of our vehicles have RAC cover during your trip. 

Payment of Balances

It's 25% of your balance to secure your trip, this can be done through our secure payment option on our website.  The balance is to be paid in full within 14 days of your holiday commencing. 

Security Deposit

With VW Campervans there is a £1000 security deposit/insurance excess to be secured before the hire agreement starts.  There are options to reduce this security deposit to £500 for £10 a day or £250 for £20 a day. 


With our motorhome this security deposit is £1500 with options to reduce to £1000 for £10 a day, or £500 for £20 a day.   The security deposit will be refunded on the safe return of the Campervan or Motorhome and it's contents and any damage or loss will be deducted from this.
