Just back from a weekend in the Roller Team Motorhome, it was fantastic. It was my first time driving anything bigger than a family car and I was really nervous, Fiona was great, she really put me at ease and was very reassuring.my daughter and three granddaughters were with me and there was loads of space. We didn’t feel cramped at all and the motor home was equipped with everything needed for our trip. Even a bottle of prosecco which went down a treat. I would highly recommend Ava’s Motorhome Hire and will using it again in the future. Thanks, Fiona for everything x

Just returned from a week away in the Riviera motorhome…thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Comfortable, spacious and well equipped. Drove down south to Silverstone with a few detours to visit friends, easy to drive and park. Used the wild camping website for overnight free pub stops.
Thanks to Fiona for a wonderful and affordable service which made our trip possible. We would definitely recommend to anyone. Fabulous �

Helen Stewart, 28th August 2018

Just back from a week up north of Scotland and have to say it’s one of the best holidays we’ve had ..we hired the newest of the motorhomes that Fiona has and it had everything we needed and more !! ..the van was great to drive even on the small single track roads. From the moment we enquired about the van to the moment we returned it everything went great and Fiona was a pleasure to deal with ..already looking forward to booking again cannot recommend highly enough.

Sandy Mcmeechan, 9th July 2018

We are not long back from a two night hire of the Swift Escape Motorhome and could not recommend Ava’s motorhome hire enough. The motorhome itself is lovely, with all the amenities you need for the perfect break. It is so clean and modern.
The service from Fiona and her family was fantastic from booking dates to returning the vehicle, we were kept informed throughout. This was our first campervan trip and we will definitely be booking with you’s again. Thanks again!

Cheryl McIntosh, 7th September 2018

Our first time in a Motorhome and it was fantastic. Lovely spacious motorhome with everything you could possibly need. Kids loved sleeping in bunk above drivers seat. Great service from Fiona at Avas motorhome hire. Replied straight away to all our queries, nothing was a problem. Will definitely be using Avas motorhome hire in the future.

Nicola Wren-Lawless 6th July 2018

Family trip 3 nights, up north to Fort William and Lossiemouth. We hired the 6 berth – Fiat Swift and it was a pleasure to drive. Was kitted out with everything you need. Fiona was great to deal with and extremely helpful throughout the whole booking to returns process. I would highly recommend Ava’s Motorhomes.

Mark Campbell, 23rd July 2018

We had an incredible fantastic holiday in Scotland. Many thanks to Fiona for the very nice contact and the uncomplicated handling. We definitely recommend Avas Motorhome and would love to come back. Greetings from Germany.

Polly Dresden, 6th August 2018

Just had a fantastic week in the highlands thanks to Ava’s Motorhome Hire. We had everything we needed for a comfortable trip and found it easy to negotiate all of hills and roads that we encountered!
After wild camping in Inverness we travelled to Gairloch and Sands caravan park, where the facilities and views were amazing! The shop and cafe were well stocked and the staff were really helpful and friendly. Our 4 yr old loved the park, submarine and beach. Only -ve (If it is one) was the lack of signal/Wi-Fi.
We then spent a night at the Lochy site in Fort William (near the high school). A friendly family run site just outside the town and within earshot of the steam trains! There is a great car park next to Morrison’s for larger vehicles and the walk to Old Inverlochy Castle was beautiful.
We spent our last night at Oban Caravan Park. The staff were full of great advice and the facilities were okay but as we were self sufficient we were able to relax and enjoy the stunning scenery. It wasn’t far from the town (mostly single track road) & very close to the puffin diving centre.
Thanks to Fiona for this excellent service and for being “on call” for any questions that we had. We have already started planning our next trip! 

Gillian Stenhouse, 25th June 2017

We’ve just spent a week travelling round some of the North Coast 500. Had a lovely time. Had everything we needed in the campervan and Fiona was on hand to answer any questions we had. Can’t recommend Ava’s motorhome and of course Fiona highly enough. We will definitely be back for another trip. The campervan was adequate for 2 adults a teenager and a 6 year old.

Kelly McCann, 9th July 2017

Just back after hiring one of the motor homes for myself and my sons birthday weekend! My husband drove us to Aviemore for an overnight then onto Pitlochry and Tummel Valley for a stop off.

Thanks again Fiona until next time!

We have just returned from Silverstone and found Fiona very professional to deal with. We hired the pride of the fleet ( the swift ) and it did not disappoint!. Very clean , well presented with all mod cons. We enjoyed so much we have rebooked with Fiona for next year. I would like to add nothing was too much trouble and all texts , emails and calls were answered quickly.

For sure we will recommend Ava’s motorhome to everybody who wants to come to Scotland.

Just back from a week away for my partner’s 40th. We spent the week in Skye and had an amazing time �. We hired the 6 berth Fiat Riviera and despite initial worries about driving something so big, I found it to be a dream to drive …i was king (queen) of the road! Great prices, the owner is lovely and helpful, and responds to your enquiries very quickly. I would totally recommend Ava’s Motorhome Hire. X

Helene Gray, 28th April 2018

Had an amazing weekend away with Ava’s Motorhome.

The van was well equipped with more than we expected plus complimentary bubbly. Already planning our next adventure. Can’t wait!

XSteph Vannartx, 2nd April 2018

Tom Lockhart, 15th March 2017

“We don’t do camping” – if this is you (like us) then you must hire an Ava’s motorhome! Very well kitted out, clean and comfortable. 5 of us and a dog in there – no probs! We were so impressed and Fiona is lovely to deal with. Would thoroughly recommend and use again. Thank you so much Avamotorhomehire. The Kirk family. Xx

Hazel Kirk, 29th May 2017

Wonderful service, I highly recommend. Fiona was very accommodating, we had a great wee road trip and already planning our next one. Thanks again…xx

Annmarie Strain, 3rd September 2018

Just returned from a fabulous week in the Riviera motorhome, although it is an older van, it was perfect inside, quality fittings and all the space we could ask for. Fiona gave wonderful service from time of enquiry right through to returning the van and the deposit was returned to our account within an hour of drop off.

I would thoroughly recommend this company to anyone looking for a motorhome experience at a very reasonable cost.
Thanks again Fiona.
PS.. if you ever sell the van, give us a shout 😉

Grace Walker, 15th July 2018

Just back from a brilliant weekend in the Galloway Forest and our first time in a motorhome. This trip was a ‘try before you buy’ holiday for us and we are now definite motor-homers! Thanks Fiona for thinking of everything, can’t wait till December now for round 2!

Karen Wallace, 24th September 2018

Where do I start? Coming from Spain to Scotland for a wedding weekend off the west Coast in the middle of nowhere presented a number of challenges but I can honestly say that Fiona made the hiring of one of her camper vans a pleasure rather than a service. Can not do enough and after vigorously searching for good deals none were as competitive as Ava’s motorhomes. Fiona the owner made every effort to facilitate to our needs including picking up and dropping off the campervan at various locations (for a low cost off course) which made planning the trip much easier.

As for the campervan, we choose the monster fiat riviera which is an 6 berth older model campervan but was easy to drive and immaculate on delivery. We paid a £200 deposit which was returned on the safe return of the vehicle.

Over all if you are looking for a good deal, spectacular service with a family touch to it, these guys are for you. I will be using this service again!

Michael Mustafa, 3rd July 2018
