“Reliable, but very old. Motor had very little pickup but overall drove great. Bed fit together very poorly and fell apart a lot. The use of the table as a part of the bed base barely worked. ”

“I guess we travelled during high season and they don't spend much time preparing the vehicles before giving it to someone else : -level of cooling wasn't done -it was not entirely clean -vehicule was supposed to be for 3 persons but they didn't install what was needed for the third one. etc... Globally we had quite good experience with the van and we managed to visit everything we wanted but it's quite a lot of small details ... Also some information telling us the van was not self-contained would have been appreciated... Cheers, Manu”

“Though we understand the van was old with lots of miles in order for us to keep the cost down, we had several issues with it's condition: back door latch failed within the first week of our visit - wasted about a day of our trip dealing with getting it fixed; table was practically useless because it was so wobbly, the bed started to collapse and needed to be propped up, the drivers side mirror wouldn't stay in place, the refrigerator wouldn't keep cold long enough to keep food safe for more than a day, the cab would get way too hot and we found out later it was probably due to oil leakage from the oil cap. various parts of the van needed a good scrubbing, and cab upholstery needed repairs. Also when we booked the van there was NOT information on your website or in subsequent emails about the additional hefty diesel tax. We only learned about that when we picked up the van and it was too late to consider a different vehicle. ”

“1370$: 17jrs location 425$ assurance 99$ One way fee Comptez 40$ otions pr bedding pack+BBQ. Van fait son job: roule d'un point A au point B. Pas de soucis mécanique. Peine en montée. Bruit moteur. Ménage fait, mais traces d'humidité à qq endroits. Trou au niveau des pieds passager, l'air passe et l'eau quand il pleut. Kitchenette fonctionnelle. Manque filet pour retenir vêtements situés dans 2 renfoncements du plafond. Fonctionnel. Le moins cher. Bon compromis si petit budget.”

“ This vehicle is a good design and nice to live in but the automatic gearbox in this car was so mechanically poor that it took ok us ages to get anywhere and really impacted badly on our holiday because driving was a total nightmare. The aircon blew up in the first half an hour and created a monstrous stink. It didn't catch alight but we were without aircon for the whole week. When I get a budget van I expect it to be a bit worn and rough but I don't expect it to be mechanically defective. ”

“Vehicle was dirty inside. Some cups from previous renters were not clean. Vehicle also smelt. Inside needed complete refurbish: cushions, curtains, seats (torn) etc.”

“Old but still steady working in good fashion. Ideal and spacious enough for two, but might be a lot of hassle to move suitcases and the like to make enough room for three. Few shortcomings were a missing bolt on the roof vent, therefore we couldn't open it, but it has windows obviously ;). And one front tyre seemed to be leaking air, we had to pump it up every few days. Overall we had a very good trip.”

“The windshield wiper on the drivers side was in poor condition and failed. There were leaks on the drivers side windshield onto the leg of the driver. There was a leak in the seal for the top extension - passenger, back side. The rear latch stuck sometimes. The left outside mirror was loose and kept folding down when it got windy. The storage compartments were dirty and in poor condition. The faucet for the tap was loose. The good news is that we didn't have any breakdowns.”

Vehicle Comments

“The vehicle ran well BUT the front tyres were almost bald, the horn did not work, VITAL with all the bikes on the roads & it leaked. The power cord test was out of date, which explains why the lights faded in & out. The gas bottle was empty. The linen pack was barely adequate a folded towel gave more support than the pillows provided. The bed section formed by the table top dropped out of place This is our 5th holiday in a campervan & we intend doing more but we will not be using this provider”

“Looks way nicer in pictures than it was in reality. Curtain above the sink is covered in mildew which makes the whole van stink & isn't healthy. The boards that go together to make the bed kept falling through, which wasn't very fun to deal with mid-sleep every night. Windshield wipers did t work. Also it took 3 hours for them to get our van ready, even though I gave them the time I was going to arrive to pick it up well in advance. staff was friendly”
