Touring Ibiza in a VW kombi lets Jane Dunford and friend drive where fancy leads – and the money saved on accommodation can buy added yoga sessions
It’s hard to be inconspicuous when you’re driving a psychedelic orange-and-yellow 1970s VW campervan around the sun-soaked lanes of Ibiza. Schoolchildren wave, boys hoot, strangers want photos and, while eyeballs might roll when the van stalls on a steep slope, the general VDub love more than makes up for the occasional embarrassment.
I’m on the White Isle with my friend Vicky for a campervan break: this summer, classic van hire firm WeDubYou has added Ibiza to the destinations where it rents out its old-school kombis. It’s an option perhaps worth considering, given the extortionate cost of villas and hotels here in peak season.
