    OK Funsters - here is your starter for 10 :thumb:

    I have been asked to find a motorhome for hire or rent during a two week period in August for an Australian couple (full-timers living in a 30ft Winnie type Explorer).

    I have visited most of the hire firms and been quoted some toe-curling rates - problems being - August - and Australian licence (wife is English-born).

    Anybody got any ideas, please

    Our company are buying a new Swift to hire out but going rate is £750 a week. Mind you it will be very latest with all the toys on it.

    Hi guys
    I have been trying to say thankyou to the pair of you but I think I've been discommunicated or something because the site keeps telling me I'm not allowed to access that page. I assume it's a hang-over from the database problems this last week (Bryan?). :Sad:

    Anyway - public thanks to you both :thumb:

    I have spoken to several of the hire companies and was quoted in the region of £850 to £1000 per week which is marginally better than £300 per day for an RV :Eeek::Eeek::Eeek:

    I will continue to search but I don't hold out too much hope for them. :whatthe:
