About

How did we get to offering unique Land Rover Campers?

Having being involved in the travel business for 25 years, during our own vacations, we try to avoid being herded around and being told where to queue and what to do. Having kids of our own, we also try to avoid the very significant surcharges that traditional holidays attract during peaks seasons and school holidays. We believed there must be a less expensive, and more fulfilling holiday experience and started looking for alternatives. We decided on campers as being the ideal independent way to go, but what vehicle to choose?

There is no ideal configuration. The vehicle you choose depends very much on your destination and what you intend to do when you get there. However, if your campervan is too large, your really limited with the locations you can access. Too small, and accommodating the kids becomes a real issue. We have tried both.

It’s from this standpoint, that we offer our specially designed Land Rover Defender 4x4 Campers. They are for adventurous folk, who want to escape to the country & spend quality time in beautiful surroundings, without breaking the bank. They accommodate four comfortably, and yet allow stress free access to narrow lanes, small villages, and open country that would see traditional campers and motorhomes firmly stuck.

Explore Campers have never intended nor ever will be a large fleet company, with an impersonal bookings staff at the end of the line. We are small specialized bespoke product that suits a certain type of person, so when you speak to one of our team, you will know each of us has a personal stake in your enjoyment, and each of us believe that what we offer is the simply the finest land Rover Defender rental available. After all, we don’t even offer other models. We are pure DEFENDER enthusiasts.

In one of our Land Rovers, You can enjoy wild camping, walking, fishing, kayaking, and exploring all that the UK and Europe has to offer. Its about independence and making your own customized personal adventure at a pace you dictate.

We take great pride in the high standard of our Defender Campers and our service. We hope our units suit most tastes and budgets, from a weekend campervan at a summer music festival, to an off-road adventure through the Pyrenees, a surf holiday in Cornwall, or groups of friends shooting in the Scottish Highlands- we think it’s the ideal support vehicle.

We don’t know of any other camper vehicle that attracts a crowd wherever you stop. The Defender is a well loved British icon, and we are happy to be part of that 50 year heritage, but at the same time offering a completely innovative concept.

Don’t forget, we also offer free Manchester and Liverpool International Airport pickups for all our clients. Please also ask about North West rail pickups too.
