Our values

Look after the planet

We are one of the first exclusively electric campervan hire companies in the UK. Our brand new luxury converted campervans use sustainable materials, and less carbon emissions per mile than diesel vans. All wood is FSC certified. The vans include a solar panel for electricity. Natural Fibre insulation is used in the vans, using sheep's wool or hemp.

All campsites and activities booked by us have been personally curated for sustainability and environmental impact. This includes the incredible conservation project Knepp Estate, Bolney Wine Estate, The Sustainability Centre, The National Trust, and English Heritage.

Each campervan comes with a litter picker and sustainable bin liners. We encourage our customers to leave natural sites in a better state than where they found them.

Each campervan also includes a compost bin, sealed to prevent smells. We encourage our customers to deposit food waste on their journey, that we then collect and compost at the end of the trip.

Look after people

We work closely with local, independently owned businesses, including campsites, cafes, restaurants, wine estates, stores, and conservation projects. We recommend local wildlife safaris, wine tastings, natural wildlife courses, and lunches.

We decorate and stock our campervans with local products, including paintings from local artists, mugs made in local potteries, soap made locally, and coffee made by local roasters.

Our signage and printing is performed by local businesses in Brighton and Shoreham.

Our campervan conversions are developer by local companies.
