For a low price and immaculate campervan per day, hire one from Mighway. Their fleet consists of ‘listings’ or people who put up their motorhomes for rent.
Belonging to different owners means that the vehicles are given the most care, attention and maintenance. Note their house rules like no pets or smoking.
You can find options for 2-6 berth campervans. Take the neat Mercedes Sprinter 6 berth as it uses diesel for less fuel consumption and is fitted with a couch, toilet, shower, and bunk bed.
Also, we recommend getting the comprehensive insurance in case the vehicle is damaged on the road or by a third party.
So what are you waiting for? Jumpstart your road trip and pedal to the metal with Mighway, one of the companies doing the cheapest and best van rentals in Hamilton.
