Tramper Hire Resuming at Beauty Spots!

Opportunities to enjoy exploring by Tramper are available once again. 

Over the last two months we've been working closely with partner locations and organisations to adapt our hire systems to provide you with the confidence and safety that has always been central to Countryside Mobility. 

As our locations vary from small independent businesses to large attractions operated by national organisations, resuming Tramper hire will look slightly different at each location and may take longer to get started at some places compared to others. For some locations, there are additional complications in terms of having adequeate staffing in place to provide the more in-depth care offered in hiring Trampers while for others there may be difficulties in intergrating Trampers into one way systems. In some cases locations may need to take a phased approach to resuming Tramper hire - starting initially by offering it only to existing Countryside Mobility members, before making it available to visitors needing to go through a Tramper induction to become a member. 

Some of the features that you might expect to see on a regular basis are shown in the video. 

We already have some hire locations that are operating Tramper hire with many others expected to follow in the rest of this month and the start of August. As things move quickly and our partner sites are very busy, we are not always informed when Tramper hire resumes but we are trying to keep a regular check of the current position at our 50 locations. Please check this page for the latest information that we are aware of. We would still advise that you check the website and/or social media of the location you are interested in and book ahead to avoid disappointment. 

We're grateful for your patience as we look to help as many locations resume Tramper hire safely. In the meantime, don't forget to listen to our Inside Out show, bringing a taste of the countryside into your home.
