    I have done this multiple times in aus/ us using Imoova.com would recommend trying them
    How does the insurance work out with them? I've looked and it would appear there's quite a bit not covered by the insurance you take out with them. Can you get insurance separately to cover for this? I'm just concerned that what may seem like a cheap trip could end up very expensive if some crashes into you as seems to suggest that your not covered irrelevant of blame

    Price of diesel for the trip is going to be pretty substantial for a piece of fibeglass on wheels doing not much mpg.
    Prices are high in some US states, but generally they pay peanuts compared to UK prices. Also bear in mind that US MPG is based on US gallons - scews the figures quite a bit.

    Any route to get out of uk available?
    Sure is. There's a need to return a lot of boats to the French coast...

    FYI, only basic protection plan is included which means a €2k deposit, otherwise its from €20 a day for premium protection, bringing the deposit down to €500

    I would hazard a guess a deposit is just needed to make sure you don't drive off. Even if you wreck the vehicle, the deposit is returned.

    So if that's correct, just buy excess insurance here before you go - don't pay this crazy price for 20 a day.

    Nice deal for £5, but then the £2k deposit is eye watering. Imagine when you take it back and they inspect it, "yeah mate there's a scratch there, it wasn't there before. That'll be £2k for the repair"
    My brother has an RV in the US, and he wouldn't trust his own family to drive and deal with all the "protocols" as he described them, to stop it from getting trashed, hence the deposit I guess, its someone else's vehicle you're driving...

    I called customer services, they are confirming trips in next days apparently!

    Seems like a lot of the US ones are actually just in a roof tent rather than a camper. That could get pretty old quite quickly on a 3000 mile drive

    I wasn't expecting to hear back but I did... currently at Gatwick on my way to pick up the rental!
    Let us know how the trip goes, hope you have a great time

    This is very clever, presumably they are getting people to slep the vehicles back to their actual owners... Some of those distances to be covered are quite intense though?
    Yep and the US interstates are boring

    and how are you supposed to return from this "one-way" excitement
    Book another of course.

    I’ve done these several times in Canada, USA and NZ. Absolutely amazing way to travel on a budget
    Some of the ones in NZ I remember would even pay your fuel for you!

    They've been doing this with cars in North America for decade's. People relocate, have a removals company move everything, they jump on a flight and pay a company to get their car over to their new location. Me and a mate got half way across Canada for the price of the fuel. We ended up being put up for the night be the lady who's car it was - I still remember the downstairs beer fridge we were given free reign over!
    If you still remember it you didn’t make good use of it.

    Yet anti-EV ranters post they won't pull a caravan on every EV thread

    So irrelevant some EVs won't work for 1% of households for a few days of the year (edited)

    Deal of the century if you can get a USA coast to coast trip for to that kind of money. A younger me would do it in a heartbeat.
    Agreed - this is pretty awesome for the US ones if you can get it!

    Surprised no one has commented yet (prior to me) on numbers 3, 14 & 17 with them writing he/his instead of he/she/them/they/themselves etc lol (edited)
    Rules only apply to those who use he/him pronouns then? Simples

    £2000 deposit is a little eye-watering, especially for folks on here, hunting for a £5 road trip.

    Great deal if you can swing it though (and don't get any damage...)
    you get to drive around a 30K camper van with a deposit of 2K - people just want everything for free.

    Any way of seeing what £5 or cheap offers are available besides filling in random dates?
  24. Avatar
    I've won, apparently. Doesn't really feel like it with that deposit mind you.

    Brilliant deal, would love to take some of these journeys on. Bloody work getting in the way of leisurely exploring for a bargain price!!
    Yes, not something that can be done in a week or so. Need months off for such trips.

    This is a scam for the £5 application fee.

    Just got a response. They want $725 for my dates and only 75 miles a day. Hmmm
    Did you request any additional days from what was listed? Or did they say why it would be more than £5?

    Best deal I found so far

    So has anyone recieved a email yet confirming they have the slot?
  31. Avatar
    Checked out some of these routes, and typically a 1500km allowance only gives 300km spare. So you will pay per km over this eg 30p in Austria (diesel will be about 13p/km) or you can buy a package for an extra 100km day for £14 per day.

    Has anyone heard back?
    Submitted 3 applications yesterday, nothing yet!

    Does anyone know of any other companies doing this with campervans or cars in Europe? I looked on imoovea but they don't have any listed in Europe
