Our Green Tourism Policy

Our mission…To Promote sustainable campervan and motorhome tourism in Great Britain

Here at Zoom motorhome Hire, not only are we are passionate about what we do and the country we live in, but also about climate change. It is for that reason we are working with Green Tourism to help us achieve our green goals and are delighted to announce we have been awarded a Green Tourism accreditation. You may ask why and how…. We certainly didn’t think a motorhome hire company was very climate friendly and then did a bit of digging and discovered. that it is far more economically green than taking a flight anywhere, and what’s even better is you can travel at your own pace, and visit as many or as few places during your holiday as you like.

We want to share the beauty of our country, and encourage people to discover how great, Britain really is. We want people to explore our country’s natural beauty and travel from destination to destination at their own pace in one of our motorhomes, but we also want to make sure it is done responsibly and with respect. As a travel company, and in order to help preserve the world we live in, we are committed to promoting sustainable and responsible tourism.

Our Objectives:

  • To promote/encourage motorhome holidays in the UK as a more sustainable way to have a holiday.
  • To promote responsible motorhome travel in the UK.
  • To be as environmentally friendly as possible with our business products/practices by monitoring resource efficiency such as water, energy and chemicals.

Our Targets:

  • Make our commitment to green tourism clearly visible on our website, on social media, in our motorhomes and at our depot.
  • To renew our vehicles every 2 years, keeping in line with any government climate change regulations.
  • To encourage people to explore what’s on their doorstep.
  • Have chemical free toilets in all our motorhomes.

How will we achieve this?

  • All our vehicles have EC regulation compliant Euro VI diesel engines, reducing fuel consumption and CO2 emissions.
  • All our campervans come equipped with litter pickers and our customers are asked to recycle rubbish whenever possible.
  • We provide green chemicals to break down waste and Ecover washing up liquid.
  • We encourage customers to shop local and support local communities as much as possible.
  • We are paperless wherever possible, we use DocuSign to get our terms and conditions signed and request all documents digitally.
  • We provide bamboo toilet roll and bamboo mattress protectors.
  • We provide gas BBQs in all our campervans.
  • And, just in case you forget your toothbrush, we even provide bamboo toothbrushes!
