Polar Bear is our beloved VW campervan. She had her conversion completed in June 2020 and is raring to go. She comes with everything that you would need to enjoy your camping holiday. Plates. bowls, cutlery, toaster, kettle, tea, coffee, sugar, Mattresses etc. As a long wheel base (LWB) she has a bit more living and storage space without compromising easy driving. We are based in Edinburgh so ideally situated to explore Scotland and especially the North Coast 500.
Both the bottom Rock n Roll bed and the Pop up come with mattresses to add a little extra comfort and we can supply bedding for you at an extra cost if required.
The front double passenger seat is fitted with a Kirivans swivel base so you can swivel the entire seat around to face into the living area.
Fitted with a solar panel and leisure battery you can either go wild camping off grid or if on a campsite you can also hook up with the supplied cable.
We don't charge for cleaning if it is returned in the same condition when it was picked up. If the van returns dirty, on the inside, then a cleaning fee of £35 will be applied. A Portable Toilet can also be supplied on request.
Fully insured for hirers aged 25-75. Please no smoking and pets are allowed but will include the cleaning fee.
Our aim is for you to just collect the keys and go, with everything you would need to enjoy your holiday. We can pick you up from Edinburgh Airport or Train Station if required. If you are driving to us then you can securely park it on our driveway (although not responsible for it)
Polar Bear is given a good clean and the inside is disinfected after every rental so rest assured that she will be ready to go when you arrive.

Third party liability + Comprehensive insurance
Towing costs and alternative accommodation (after an accident) and Roadside assistance
The security bond for this vehicle is $1,500. The bond will be refunded after your trip ended and needs to be authorized at least 2 days before your trip starts.
Unfortunately, we had one wheel break-down on day 2 of the road trip, resulting in the camper-van needing to be fixed in Edimbourg but Paul and his wife have been really supportive and we got all the assistance needed to get repatriated. Paul also generously booked us 2 nights in town to have time to sort out new travel plans as we wanted to get back to the road before the van wheel being replaced (where he wasn’t in the obligation to do so!), and it is definitely in these rare unfortunate moments you realise how compassionate and reliable a private hirer is (which can not necessarily be the case with all general renters!). We are also grateful of the support provided by Paul thoughout the process with Camptoo for reimbursement of the remaining unused nights in the campervan.
Otherwise, during the night we could sleep in the camper-van, everything worked perfectly, the vehicule is also lovely with Paul’s personal additions (TV, lights, accessories…) with everything you would need in term of furniture, the vehicle is recent and easy to drive. The mattress was also confortable.
We hope to be able to travel again in Scotland in the future but in the meantime, we highly recommend Paul as you can be reassured he will be reactive and get you covered if any situations or questions.
We would highly recommend this vehicle.
