Dear Fellow Motorhomer,
September and it is a great month to be touring. However, before looking at motorhome travel for this month, here at GB Motorhome Tours we are all saddened by the passing of the Queen. At our office, we have received messages from campsite owners and guides in various countries across Europe, passing on their condolences that Britain has lost its long-standing monarch. It really does indicate how much the Queen was known and respected across a much wider area than just the UK, she will be sadly missed.
For motorhome travel, September is a great month to be away. With the school holidays finished, campsites are less busy and excellent weather is still to be found in many regions of Europe. This month GB Motorhome Tours have trips taking place in Croatia and Italy, both of which are having perfect touring weather of warm sunny days.
Croatian Highlights tour – September 2022
Northern Italy Treasures tour – September 2022
Next week also sees the start of the Cyprus and More tour. Being the Mediterranean’s eastern most island and located around 3,000 miles from the UK, travelling overland to Cyprus is a real adventure. Look out for reports from this tour in the next couple of newsletters. This tour is being repeated again next year, if you could be interested in taking on the adventure, full details of the tour are available by clicking on Cyprus and More 2023 tour.
For touring next year in a closer to home destination and in a far more relaxed manner, two new trips have just been added to the 2023 tour programme.
An all-new tour along the French Loire Valley tour. This is a relaxed tour following the beautiful Loire River, starting near its mouth at Nantes and gently touring upstream as far as Blois. With included visits to the Cointreau distillery, the Musee du Champignon (mushrooms) and the Grande Maison du Fines Bulles (House of fine bubbles) expect to be well introduced to French products, as well as the beautiful scenery and chateaus of the region. Full tour details available by clicking on French Loire Valley 2023 tour
An all-new tour in southern Ireland. Another relaxed tour, taking in the beauty of the south and west regions of the country; where we find Blarney Castle, The Ring of Kerry, The Dingle Peninsular, The Cliffs of Moher and Galway. We include these as we travel leisurely along the route of the Wild Atlantic Way . There is then time in Dublin, to see and explore this colourful capital of the south.

In addition to these two new tours, there is also another tour being worked on for next year which should be completed and made available over the next month. This is the Rhine in Flames Spectacular, taking place at the start of September 2023. Enjoy time on the Rhine and Mosel rivers, including joining the Mosel wine festival and the Rhine in Flames spectacular. If you would like to pre-register your interest in this tour, send us a quick email and this will be done for you. People with pre-registered interest will receive the tour itinerary in advance of it being made generally available, giving them first opportunity of requesting a place on the tour, if so desired.
For all touring abroad it’s good practice to try and carry sufficient prescription medication with you to cover the duration of your trip. This avoids the need to locate supplies in foreign countries. Getting them in advance of your tour does not usually give a problem, advise your GP of your needs and they should provide the required prescription in advance of your departure. However, do arrange this in good time. We are hearing currently, that for some medications there is a shortfall in supplies, resulting in delays in some prescription medications being supplied.
With travel now really opening up again, all of us at GB Motorhome Tours look forward to travelling with you to many great places very soon. If there is anything you wish to ask about a tour, feel free to contact us.
