The UK’s number one manufacturer of motorhomes and caravans has launched a new motorhome hire business with plans to expand across the country.

Swift Go motorhome hire comes from Cottingham-based Swift Group, one of Yorkshire’s biggest businesses and the first UK-based manufacturer to go directly into hire. It aims to bring the qualities and values synonymous with Swift to the rental market in a simple and straightforward way. The motorhomes are the most comprehensively kitted out as standard on the UK market. The first depot, based near Manchester, opens in March 2018 with plans to expand to six depots in key locations across the UK by 2022.

Bookings are now being taken through Swift Go’s brand new website –

Swift Go simplifies motorhome hire

Simplicity and quality are at the heart of Swift Go. Vehicles are fully equipped as standard for greater clarity around pricing and more convenience for hirers. Swift Go made the move after finding that many hire services charge extra for things like bedding and towels. Richard Smeaton, Swift Group Finance Director, heads up Swift Go. He explains: “Holidays are all about quality time – whether that’s relaxation or adventure. We’re committed to making motorhome hire as simple and straightforward as possible. We include everything from bike racks, bedding and towels to pans, crockery and kitchen utensils. “We’ve also equipped our vans with on-board Wi-Fi so people can stay connected during their holidays, and outdoor furniture for relaxing with a barbecue on a summer’s evening. All hires will receive a complimentary welcome pack including breakfast provisions.”

The vehicles come fitted with Swift Command, a smartphone app that enables people to control certain settings such as lighting and heating. This works in a similar way to automated ‘smart home’ products that are becoming common in people’s homes. Swift Go launches with 50 vehicles, increasing to 70 for summer 2018. Two of the most popular Swift motorhome ranges, Escape and Select, have been chosen for the hire fleet.

You can see a huge range of the latest Swift caravans, motorhomes and holiday homes at The Caravan & Motorhome Show, 18 - 21 January 2018 at Manchester EventCity. Tickets can be purchased for only £8.50 via our secure online box office.
