Over 60% of the bookings for the Swift Sundance Lifestyle, Bolero, Voyager and the Kon-Tiki Motorhomes were for hires of 7 days or more. 15% of hires were for destinations on mainland Europe (southern France, Italy, Spain and Portugal) from their Ferndown hire centre using nearby Poole ferry terminal or alternative south coast ferry ports.
