Are Motorhomes Economical To Run?

It would be fair to say that most people know that motorhome hire can be much more affordable than traditional hotel or bed and breakfast stays. With a vehicle you combine your local travel and accommodation costs into one, reducing the overall price of your holiday. Should this sound a bit too good to be true to you, it’s not the case that you are alone. A number of people have questioned this, suggesting that surely the cost of fuel impacts and to an extent negates the benefit of saving.

This is a very fair question to ask. It’s not one we have hidden away from in the past, as our service is built on the principle of always ensuring fair and transparent pricing is made clear. Despite this being the case for how we work, it is sadly impossible to state exactly how much fuel or road tolls would cost for those using our worldwide motorhome hire services.

We are a global brand, with our services available in some 25 countries. This means that we work with 25 different sets of rules and regulations, covering everything from fuel emissions on vehicles, road taxes and fuel costs. Whilst the companies we represent around the world will always be happy to answer questions about local road conditions and fuel costs, we cannot give a general global answer.

A matter we would draw attention to in regards of the economic impact of motorhomes is that the ones we represent tend to be no older than 3 or 4 years. Most are younger than this. What this means for you is that our vehicles are ones which have taken full advantage of developments in fuel efficiency, making them as economically viable as possible to run.

During our many years of experience we have not once encountered a case where someone found motorhome hire plus fuel to be more expensive than hotel plus travel costs. In our view, we firmly believe that this will always be the case, making motorhomes an affordable and enjoyable way to relax and explore the world.
