Q: So how does it work? A: Hop on the ferry to Mull (pre booking required if bringing a car) and we meet you either in Tobermory (there is a bus service from the ferry) or at our house near Dervaig. Q: Do I need to bring my car over? A: No, you can come over on the ferry as a foot passenger, then get the bus up to Tobermory and we can meet you there. If you wish to bring your car you can park it in the car park in Tobermory or you can meet us at our house and you can leave your car in our driveway. Q: Where should I park my car in Oban? A: You can find a space on Gallanach Road near the ferry terminal. or you can securely park at Hazelbank Motors near Tescos who are offering Mull Camper Van customers a discounted rate of £5 per day for 3+days or £30 for the week. CCTV and everything! Q: What do I need? A: Very little! Just your clothes, towels and personal items and due to Covid please bring your own sleeping bags. We can provide pillows and crockery, pots, cleaning items, sponge, t-towels, bin bag, camping chairs, tent and mattresses are provided in the Van. The vans are compact so the less you bring, the more space you will have! Q: Where should I buy my food? A: There are food shops in Fionnphort, Bunessan, Salen, Craignure, Dervaig and a relatively large Co-op in Tobermory. Q: Where should I go? A: Check out the Campsites and Wild Camping spots HEREand a suggested tour HERE Q: How many does the Bongo Van sleep? A: There are seat belts for 4 and there are 2 'double' berths, but bear in mind a double berth is only a bit wider than a single bed and the roof space is small so best suited to small children! Cosy! The measurements of each van can be found on their individual pages. Ideal for 2 or 2 plus a small child. Q: Do you take pets? A: Sorry no :( Q: What do I need to hire the Van? A: You need to be between 21 and 79 years of age, have had a driving licence for at least 2 years and have no convictions. See terms here. You need to pay a refundable deposit of £500, and bring photo ID, your drivers licence, a print out of your Drivers Record (UK drivers only) which can be found on the DVLA website, and address ID eg. a utility bill. If you are outwith these ages please contact us and we will run it by our insurers. Chances are they will be fine with it but we do need to inform them and they sometimes request a higher security deposit. Q: What precautions are you taking to prevent Covid Transmission? A: Firstly we're asking guests to clean the van with a viruscidal solution before returning it to us. We will then clean again and will air the van prior to the next hire. As much of the van is textiles, we'll spray the van with a viruscidal solution but we can't guarantee 100% effectiveness. The crockery and pots and pans won't be cleaned separately after every hire and that risk can be mitigated by bringing your own, or accepting the risk. We will do our utmost to prevent this risk and will clean them if there's time. Q: Can I hire your vans if I don't have a UK licence? Yes! If you have a licence from Australia, Canada, New Zealand, Hong Kong (if previously held a UK licence), Southern Ireland, South Africa, USA, EU Countries( unless otherwise stated) and can provde the required paperwork (including your passport if you are not from the UK) and a £500 security deposit. If you are from the following countries: Belarus, Bermuda, Bosnia, Hong Kong, Israel, Latvia, Montenegro, Russia, Serbia, Singapore, Turkey, an additional £500 security deposit is required. If you are from any countries not listed please ask and we will run it by the insurers. Q: What is the security deposit? A: This is a refundable damage deposit. Should you have a bump the max you would ever pay would be the amount of your security deposit. Our deposit is £500 and this must be paid by credit card 7 days before your hire. We return it within 7 days of the end of your hire. Any damage caused by you to the van is paid for out of your security deposit. It is standard fare for hiring Campervans and highly unlikely to be needed so long as you look after your van! Q: How do I pay? A: We recommend you do an online bank transfer, as it is free! Or you can now book online using our secure payment system. Q; Where can we buy diesel/petrol for the van? A: The van is supplied with a full tank of diesel (Bertha) petrol (Bongo) which should last you most of your trip. There are petrol stations in Craignure, Bunessan, Salen and Tobermory. We require the van to be returned with a full tank of diesel/petrol - if you don't have time to fill up we will do it for you and subtract the amount from your security deposit. Q: What happens if we break down? A: You have AA Roadside services. The number is in the passenger glove compartment. We will endeavour to replace the van should it not be fixable and find you alternative accommodation but cannot guarantee anything especially in the busy season. We also reserve the right to cancel any booking should the van become unfit for hire. Q: When are the vans available to hire? A: March through to October, Q: Can we Wild Camp on Mull? We recommend you use one of the many wonderful Campsites on the Island. Q: Can we take the van off island? A: Yes, there are lots of amazing places to visit on the West Coast of Scotland and Mull is a great place to start and end your journey but please let us know before you go. Q: How do we get to Mull?
