UPDATE OCTOBER 2013:
Sue has been in touch to let us know about the new services Lazy Days now offer, including the Republic of Ireland’s only VW Beetle for hire ! I contacted Sue after a reader inquired if Lazy Days were still going… and by the sounds of it they’re going from strength to strength, here’s what she had to say:
“Yes we at Lazy Days are very much still in business, we have grown our Wedding Car offering from 1 to 3 vehicles this year 2013. All 9 of our vintage VW campers are also available for wedding hire in the low season. We are also adding a fourth Split Screen and a VW Beetle for the 2014 season!
Two updates on Lisa’s original post: We no longer offer a chauffeur driven service. All of our vehicles are available for self-drive hire only. The other major change is that we have secured insurance to rent a VW Beetle for self-drive hire. This will be southern Ireland’s first and only insured Beetle for wedding hire!
Last week’s Friday Poll was all about getting to the church on time… and in style. At the time of writing the second most popular choice was a somewhat unusual one – ‘Something quirky – a fleet of minis or a VW camper van’ had 26.67% of the vote! In celebration of all things off-beat I decided to do this post on unusual wedding transport and you can imagine my delight when I discovered Lazy Days camper van hire.
As a bride-to-be with quirky sensibilities I have been disappointed time and time again whilst searching for VW Beetles, Minis, and VW camper vans for hire. The former two don’t qualify for Public Service Vehicle licenses in Ireland and therefore cannot be rented as a taxi (which effectively wedding cars are). But VW camper vans are a whole different kettle of fish!
Lazy Days hire their self-drive and
chauffer-driven campers for all sorts of weddings and events. The self-drive option is perfect for those familiar with the vehicles; they might have owned or rented a VW before in Australia, or they may dream of owning one (Which, yes, is me). Sometimes people even hold on to the camper on self-drive and head off around Ireland on honeymoon – what a great idea for a honeymoon on a budget!
