Apollo Europe Covid Update
Please be advised that in line with current government guidelines and restrictions across Europe, Apollo Europe depots are not currently operating as normal. For guests planning their next motorhome holiday, please keep up to date with our latest depot updates below.
We also recommend that all guests also keep up to date with potential travel restrictions in your country of pickup and destinations of travel.
Germany (Hamburg): Open for rentals – Restrictions in place to 18 April 2021
Please note, rentals for tourist purposes cannot go ahead, and campgrounds and other commercial overnight stay options are closed for tourist purposes.
Rentals for business trips and rentals with stays on private properties are available. Apollo will require a written confirmation that you are either on a business trip or that you are staying on private property for the duration of your rental. This written confirmation needs to be emailed to Apollo prior to the commencement of the rental. We reserve the right to cancel a booking if the confirmation is not received.
For more information or to make a booking during this period, please contact the Apollo Hamburg Branch directly: +49 40 8836 6013 or via email [email protected]
England (London & Birmingham/Coventry):
Following the government’s roadmap for easing lockdown, Apollo is pleased to provisionally confirm the re-opening for our London and Coventry/Birmingham depots for rentals from the 12th April.
Campsites will also be permitted to open at this time to welcome fully self-contained campervans and motorhomes such as the Aero, Aero Plus, Vista, Vista Plus, Europa and Grande motorhomes. From 17th May, campsites will open their communal shower, toilet & cooking facilities and will be able to welcome all vehicle types.
Please be aware that between 12th April and 17th May, travel is only permitted with members of your household.
Additionally, Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland have not yet announced their travel rules, including whether people hiring from England will be allowed to visit. Under the current guidance, travel into Mainland Europe from England is not permitted until at least 17th May.
Scotland (Edinburgh): The roadmap for easing Scotland’s restrictions is more cautious. Based on the current information provided by the government, we hope to safely re-open our Edinburgh depot on 26th April however this is subject to further clarification on the easing of restrictions which will be published in mid-March.
Northern Ireland (Belfast): We hope to safely re-open again in Spring subject to further government advice but will keep you up to date via our website, email, and social media channels.
We understand the uncertainty around Covid is unsettling and may affect your current or future travel plans. In response to the Covid-19 outbreak, we have updated our policies so that guests considering a future rental can have peace of mind when booking their motorhome holiday.
