Age Restrictions and hire at O'Connors Campers

Everyone loves campervans and we get lots of enquiries from younger drivers who are keen to hire. We are governed by what our insurers will allow in terms of age and experience, so this is the deal:

This applies to our 1960s & 1970s Campervans and our new VW California campervans.

All drivers between 25 and 70 can be insured. You'll need to be driving on a full, clean, UK license and to have held your license for more than two years. If you have any driving endorsements, you need to let us know in advance. These will incur a small extra daily charge. All drivers are subject to a full DVLA check on collection, which will display any current endorsements. If you hold a foreign license, there is an extra insurance charge of £2.50, per driver, per day.

If you are over 23 years old we can insure you to drive one of our vans. Subject to the same conditions above, the drivers excess is raised to £750, which cannot be reduced using our regular Collision Damage Waiver options. There is also a young driver charge of £5 per day.

If you are over 21 years old, we can also insure you to drive one of our vans. Subject to the same conditions above, the drivers excess is raised to £1000, which cannot be reduced using our regular Collision Damage Waiver options. There is also a young driver charge of £5 per day.

These will incur a small extra daily charge. All drivers are subject to a full DVLA check on collection, which will display any current endorsements. If you hold a foreign license, there is an extra insurance charge of £2.50, per driver, per day.

If you are over 23 years (but under 25 years old) old we can insure you to drive one of our vans. Subject to the same conditions above, the drivers excess is raised to £750, which cannot be reduced using our regular Collision Damage Waiver options. There is also a young driver charge of £5 per day.

We cannot hire to students, so you'll need to be in full time employment.

Please do get in touch if you have questions. We'll be pleased to help.
