Hi, we are Claire and Martin Page who run our family business of Deeside Classic Campers. We have a passion for classic splitscreen VW campervans and bringing our customers unique campervan hire holiday experiences across Scotland.
We are based in beautiful Royal Deeside, Aberdeenshire, on the edge of The Cairngorms National Park…
…the perfect place for you to start your VW campervan hire adventure!
With a background as a PA in the demanding medical profession, Claire dedicates her time to the busy day to day running of Deeside Classic Campers. She thoroughly enjoys talking to campervan clients, providing advice and helping to plan their holiday to ensure that they have the best family experience of hiring a campervan for touring in Scotland.
She finds the managing of chauffeurs and the personal planning of wedding logistics for excited brides and grooms, to be a very rewarding part of the business. In summary, she loves to chat!
Claire has a great eye for detail and designed all the campervans for the fleet. This included the external colours, upholstery and fittings, down to the shape of the seating and the hand carpentry wood of the wedding campervans.
Having spent 30 years in the Police undertaking a variety of demanding roles, Martin retired in October 2016.
Martin now manages the VW campervan hire fleet. This includes the cleaning, and the logistics of the professional refurbishment and servicing of the campervans throughout the year. This enables Deeside Classic Campers to present all their VW hire campervans in show condition for every client.
Martin enjoys greeting holiday campervan adventurers when they come to collect and return their campervan from their VW touring road trip experience!
His other passion is rallying his BMW Mini Cooper S. This is unfortunately rubbing off on their daughters! Emily is a very keen co-driver and Martha from the age of 3 years is now very familiar with her bag of spanners!
We launched our classic VW campervan hire business with Hamish VW in March 2014 at the Scottish Great Outdoor Exhibition. Hamish VW set off on his first holiday campervan hire adventure around Scotland in April 2014. It became quickly apparent we needed a second campervan as the demand was so great! Fergus VW joined our holiday campervan hire family in June 2014.
Angus VW classic, splitscreen, wedding campervan joined us the following January to launch our wedding chauffeur service, at the AECC’s Your Wedding Exhibition. Our fantastic suppliers VW Downunder and Madmatz VW Interiors had just 6 weeks to complete the restoration on Angus VW! The camper was delivered to us three days prior to the Exhibition!
In early 2016 we complemented our classic VW boys with a brand new modern VW T6 campervan, Murdo, with all the mod cons you would expect for an amazing touring campervan experience. Murdo T6 VW is our dog friendly campervan, so your best “furry” friends can enjoy your campervan holiday adventure with you too!
In 2017 we added a second VW splitscreen wedding campervan/bus, Archie, as the demand for our wedding chauffeur service continued to grow.
2019 brought the addition of two further modern T6 VW campervans to our holiday hire fleet. Murray and Harris VW T6 campervans come with amazing interiors and tartan upholstered seating, which fits in very well with touring Scotland!
We pride ourselves on our helpful, friendly, and personal customer service. Our attention to quality and detail is reflected in this as well as our campervans.
We are only too happy to talk you thourgh any questions or queries you may have, so please feel free to pick up the phone and give us a call.
