One way Campervan Hires

Spaceships offer one-way European campervan hires between our depots in London, Edinburgh and Dublin

A one-way trip is where you pick your spaceship campervan in one place, and return it back to a different location. With Spaceships you can do one-way hires between any of our depots.

Most motorhome companies charge a huge one-way fee because they don't have depots in each country. They need to send a driver to collect the vehicle which is very expensive. At Spaceships we have our own depots in London, Dublin and Edinburgh. This means we don't need to relocate the vehicle and can pass the savings on to you!

The table below provides rough journey distances and times between our depots:

 

  

 

London

Edinburgh Dublin  
Edinburgh     

437 miles

6 hours 

Dublin

395 miles  

8 hours

264 miles  

6.5 hours

Space Mates

Space Mates are local contact points around the UK and Europe for travel advice, discounts and DVD exchange.

The UK and Europe cover a huge area and it’s easy to get lost or just to focus on the main areas. A little bit of local advice from a friendly face can go a long way in helping you discover secret spots off the beaten track and away from the crowds.

This is why we have created a Europe-wide network of Space Mates - to share all this great information with you, as well as help you get special deals on activities.

Space Mates form a unique after hire service that is available to all Spaceship travellers. 

You are not alone when travelling in a Spaceship.
