Van Life Survival Kit List

We like to make life easy for our customers so pack your bag (bring waterproofs!) stock up on food, bring linen if not hiring from us, a pair of van slippers/flip flops and most importantly bring a sense of adventure and humour and let us take care of the rest.

Driver Documents

  • Both parts (if applicable) of your valid UK or EU driving licence.
  • National Insurance number, or valid driving licence check code. This is required for a DVLA check on the driving licence.
  • 2 utility bills providing proof of address dated within 3 months of the hire date Please note, it is an insurance requirement that we see these when you come to collect Dolly/Dixie/Roxy and unfortunately you will not be able to take the van without them.
