Trafalgur or Costsaver Tours

Hi all,

Just a quick question... Has anyone on the site done a Trafalgur or Costsaver tour of the UK.

We are thinking of a 16 day one in March next year, and would love some feedback... 

We are definitely coming over. But wondered if we would see more ourselves in a good Campervan'

Thanks

Ian

    I cannot recommend self planning and driving in a campervan enough (even though I've never done it). A simple way to look at it is thinking what can the tour company provide that you can't self plan. You already know their itinerary and also the places you want to see. Once you read the single track driving etiquette, you are good to go. There are so stunning campsites across the country. That said, they are extremely busy in the summer so I will defer to a campervan travel expert.

    That's it Horizons,

    we have seen their prices, and for what you get for 16 days, including most meals and accommodation, the price is good..

    We were then going to cruise around for another 16 days... So our thoughts are, if we rent a camper and do it ourselves, we can save money..

    Now to find a reputable but cheaper campers that the big vehicle rental companies...... Any recommendations???

    thanks
