Bringing your motorhome to the Isle of Man is a great way to get out and enjoy the Island’s scenery whist enjoying the comfort of your own surroundings. Campervans are welcomed to the Island all year round, so all you need to do is pack up your van and book your crossing!
For those who are looking to bring their towed caravan
there are some restrictions to take into consideration. Due to the windy and sometimes narrow and tricky roads, bringing a towed caravan to the Isle of Man is controlled by way of an agreement between the Department of Infrastructure
, the Isle of Man Steam Packet Company
and other freight operators to ensure that towed caravans arriving at the Island’s main ports have a valid permit
So, if you’re thinking of bringing your caravan to the Isle of Man, you’ll need to submit a written request
to the address below or email firstname.lastname@example.org
prior to booking travel and/or at least two weeks before your visit. This should include details of your proposed date of arrival and departure, the purpose of your visit, and where your caravan is to be sited while on the Island.
With effect from 1 April 2015 a permit will only be issued to a towed caravan provided they meet all of the following criteria:
- They are visiting for the Isle of Man TT, Southern 100, or Isle of Man Festival of Motorcycling (Manx Grand Prix/Classic TT) period; and
- They have a return ferry booking for the caravan within three weeks of arrival; and
- They are staying at an approved campsite
Please note only certain routes from the Island’s ports are permitted for caravan travel to designated campsites. Full details of these routes and campsites can be provided from the Department of Infrastructure.
