A lovely holiday in the Blue Van
We liked the look of it, so we hired the Blue Van for a holiday in Slovenia, Italy, Switzerland, and Germany. Everything was easily accomplished on the goboony site, and the van owners (Jan and Hanneke) welcomed our request to come and have a look at everything a few weeks before we set off so that we would know what to expect. On the day of our departure, Jan helped us to get comfortable driving the van. (We are experienced van drivers, but Jan's offer of a little practice was gladly accepted.) The Blue Van is a lovely compact camper van for a couple or even for three if the third person is short and slight. (A friend of that stature travelled with us for the first week and we all slept comfortably.) The van drives and parks easily. Everything works the way you would expect in a small, cosy camper van. Hanneke has everything including the kitchen set up to be convenient and easy to use. (We cooked most meals ourselves to save money for adventures.) We even parked off-grid a couple of times and everything worked perfectly. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip. Hanneke and Jan are kind, approachable owners, always available by text message and always easy to talk to. (Example: Jan collected us from the train station to make it easy for us to get to their house. Later during the trip, I texted Hanneke that a light seemed to have burnt out and she ordered a new one immediately.) Communication throughout flowed comfortably. Recommended.
Fantastische reis gemaakt met deze fijne camper, Nog niet eerder zo relaxed op vakantie gegaan.
De camper heeft alles wat je nodig hebt, prima bedden, keurig eigen toilet (wat ook super is als je onderweg bent en niet naar een vies truckerstoilet hoeft)
Zowel op de snelweg als kleinere wegen prima te besturen. De kleine koelkast kan meer in dan je in eerste instantie zou denken.
Volop bergruimte voor al je spullen.
Met onze twee fietsen achterop, tussentijds heerlijke fietstochten kunnen maken.
Absoluut een aanrader!
Jan en Hanneke, bedankt voor de gastvrijheid.
Jan and Hanneke's blue mobile is fantastic! This compact camper has everything you need, is easy to drive, is slimline easy to park in most places. It is reliable, we toured most of Europe over 5 and a half weeks and there was no problems. A family of 3 we fit well in the Camper, the beds were lovely and comfortable, the kitchen and bathroom facilities were spot on. We used campsites or swimming pools when we needed a shower so as not to waste water.
Jan and Hanneke met us at the airport and gave us coffee and a full tour of the van so we could be confident in our use. They also gave us a ride to our hotel following drop-off. They were always in communication and if we had any problems they did their best to help us.
We highly recommend hire age of this camper van, Jan and Hanneke are great people, trustworthy and honest.
