Emergency Accommodation during the Coronavirus pandemic

Posted on 23/03/2020 by Mike Salmon


If you are concerned about taking COVID-19 into your home, we are offering emergency accommodation during the Coronavirus pandemic.

To help contain the spread of Coronavirus, we have temporarily stopped taking bookings for non-essential travel and tourism rentals. However, our UK and Ireland branches are making motorhomes available for people who need to self-isolate. We have some customers who are renting a motorhome for a period of self-isolation.

If you work in healthcare or the emergency services, you may want to self-isolate away from other family members. Similarly, if you have an elderly or vulnerable family member, you may want to live and stay away from them, or move them to a safe environment away from the rest of the family.

It should be stressed that the motorhomes are only available for static emergency accommodation on driveways, and are not to be used for non-essential travel or touring at this time.

Our 4 and 7-berth Adria motorhomes have central heating, shower, toilet, kitchen with oven, hob and fridge/freezer and a lounge/diner with TV/DVD. There's plenty of storage inside for clothes and at the rear for a bike and any other gear you need.

All cutlery, crockery and cooking equipment is provided, and you have the choice of using your own bedding or adding professionally laundered bedding supplied by us. All you need is a mains power connection and your new temporary home on wheels is ready. Your Spaceship can be a safe place to self-isolate, your home AT home.

We can deliver a Motorhome for you or a family member to safely self-isolate

A professional service for complete peace of mind

If you live within 50 miles of our London, Edinburgh or Dublin branches, we can deliver a motorhome to your driveway. All our campervans and motorhomes are deep cleaned and valeted before going out. We are also offering a contactless pick-up/drop-off service from a secure key box. If you prefer to collect, we'll email you details of your box and your unique key code to collect your keys. The same process will take place when you return the vehicle. Pick-up and drop-off is available this way, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This is our regular out of hours policy which we have now extended to all collections during the Coronavirus pandemic. Complimentary 24 hours roadside assistance is also included. 

Unfortunately we cannot offer this service free of charge. There is a cost to keeping the motorhomes on the road. They must have all finance payments up to date, be taxed and insured, maintained, serviced, fully kitted out and cleaned. We need staff to carry out this work. We have however reduced our daily rental cost by 50% to help out at this time and are prepared to deliver to your driveway, at no additional cost to you.

We are also working with other trusted industry partners, so wherever you are in the UK, please give us a call and we will do our best to help find you alternative emergency accommodation in which you can self isolate during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Be responsible and stay safe

If you are self-isolating, please respect good hygiene practices and your local community. Wash your hands regularly, maintain social distancing, avoid groups and high population areas and don't stockpile food and hygiene products.

We have motorhomes available now ready to help support families. For people who are going out to work and are concerned about taking the COVID-19 Coronavirus home, this could be a practical way to stay close to your family, but help to keep them safe at home.
