Just joined so getting to grips with this great forum. Founded Retro Runaways a month ago to hire out our much-loved 2010 VW Danbury Amigo, Babs. We've decided it's about time she can earn her keep!
You can read about our exploits on my blog - retrorunaways.wordpress.com.
Our website (which I built all by my technophobic self bounce ) also has other info on it - www.retrorunaways.co.uk
Not to mention facebook and twitter (@retrorunaways).
Ambition = to own a multi-coloured fleet of these bad boys.
Lovin' life in the Vdub lane.
Cheerio,
Sarah at Retro Runaways
PS. Anyone know what windscreen wipers fit my van? This latest snowfall/ice tore hers to shreds when I accidentally knocked them on. Oops Rolling Eyes

Howdy!

I tried to look at your site and see you have a slight hosting issue.

Aside from renting out Tallulah I run a web development company which includes providing hosting for web projects, so if I can be of any help just let me know.

Audi - that's what the cowboy said when he walked into a car showroom

Good luck hiring out Babs - hope it all works out

Hi Sarah,

I've followed you on Twitter with our various brands - hope the hire season go well.

Can I point you in the direction of our Northern Meet in May?:

AHA! The link in your first post includes a "." at the end hence the issue, please ignore my previous post, although the offer of help still stands.

Just looked at your Blog and I'm very impressed and envious of some of your trips.

I see you've already done Appletreewick - fancy giving us a review of the site?

Thanks for all your encouragement & kind messages, fellow Brazi Bays - my heart is warmed!
Babs (and her owners) would love to join you at Masons for the Northern Meet - do we just book ourselves in? I'd certainly do a review of the site, Absinthe - LOVING that strap line you have.
I didn't have any joy with those aero wipers so back to the drawing board on that one.
Have my first booking in two weeks time -woop! But I think I'll need counselling before letting a stranger drive off in Babs...
Over n Out.

Good luck with your first booking, I remember being very nervous about our first hire (a week at Glastonbury!) but Tallulah came home in perfect condition and has been keen on festivals ever since!

I'm sure Babs will be just fine.

My only advice would be just to take your time carrying out the handover so you get to explain and demonstrate everything you need to and ask the hirers to call you if they have any questions etc. much better that they call rather than muddle on through and get something wrong.

Welcome from Rudi and Retro Holidays! We are based in York - which, probably you may know by now - if you were trawling the internet for other companies as we did at the beginning when setting the company ;-)
We will be happy to send any surplus enquiries your way; most of them are local so we could not pass them to other guys on the forum - they are all too far.

First time to let your Kombi out with strangers is the worst - then it gets easier every time; and it is great to see people coming back all smiles Very Happy We had many happy customers last summer.

Rudi is going out for a week tomorrow, which reminds me that I need to get the paperwork ready...

All the best

Connie
