Why rent a motorhome?

A motorhome holiday is not only suited to families - although it is true that children especially love this kind of holiday. It is a fantastic way to travel for anyone who is looking for that feeling of freedom on holiday without foregoing a high level of comfort. If you prefer to keep your itinerary flexible then a holiday with one of the comfortable and generously equipped motorhomes we offer will be just right for you.

We offer you different types of motorhomes. In our camper guides for the USA, Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Europe and Africa, we give you helpful tips and valuable information for your holiday with a campervan or motorhome.

Motorhome and Campervan Sizes

We enable you to hire campervans and motorhomes in all shapes and sizes - from compact vans for two people to robust 4WD campers right through to deluxe motorhomes with every creature comfort you can imagine. Even though some vehicle measurements can appear very large, we do advise you to avoid choosing one that is too small for your needs. For example, if several friends are sharing a vehicle we especially recommend you to go 'one size up'. Our motorhome rental partners have all gone to great lengths to design their vehicles to get the best out of the road systems, weather conditions and infrastructure present and they are relatively easy to manouevre.

Basically, motorhome types are differentiated according to six different structure types. Learn all about the different types of motorhomes and their specific differences and find out which type of campervan suites you best!

Vehicle Equipment

If required, our supplier companies will provide you with a generous assortment of equipment - normally referred to as 'kits' - with your motorhome. This includes blankets, duvets, pillows, cooking utensils, cutlery, crockery and much more. You can find a detailed list outlining which items are included in the kits by the viewing each company's 'Important rental info' on our website.

Your Luggage

We recommend that you use flexible 'soft' bags instead of hard-cased suitcases, which normally take up much more space in the motorhome storage compartments. If you are returning your vehicle to the same depot where you pick it up it is sometimes possible to leave your suitcases in storage at the rental depot for the duration of your hire. However, storage space at the depots is usually quite limited.

Planning Your Driving Route

We have provided several route suggestions with distance indicators on each of our destination-specific info pages to give you a feel for the options available.


Every country has different conditions that determine what kind of vehicle insurance is necessary. The insurance policies for any one of the destinations we offer may well differ from those to which you are accustomed. You can find detailed information on the insurance 'systems' in this section within each country's tab. All company-specific details regarding which kinds of damage are insured, the excess and total insurance cover, etc can be found in each company's 'Important rental info' section on this website.
