Brilliant van for a week away. Easy to drive, easy to set up and pack down, great quality inside and out.


No hidden extras and excellent vale for money


Hired Gertie for the weekend and what an amazing adventure. The process was effortless and we were given a full brief on how to use her. She was quirky and made everyone smile who saw her, what a way to spend a weekend. Would highly recommend. We will be returning again soon.


Gertie was a lovely old camper, be aware you need to be able to turn a non power assisted wheel! Great vehicle and great fun!


Gertie is a classic. Don't go too far in her and you will have a great experience. Just take your time and soak up the waves and smiles from other VW campers. You don't need to take too much stuff as packing it up daily, if using the van to drive around to explore the area can be a little tiresome.


A lovely van, in excellent condition, very clean, and with lots of useful extras included. Comfortable and cosy inside, and looked amazing inside and out!


Everything was as expected


Sooo much fun to drive and stay in!


I loved every second of my hire of Gertie. A proper gem of a van with bags of character. Plenty of waves from passers by and my friends were all very jealous that saw it. Felt like loads of room and so tidy and up together inside. Would highly recommend. For longer journeys I would probably opt for a newer style but Gertie was everything I wanted. Staff were a pleasure from start to finish and all.
