Maybe you have ever thought about doing a roadtrip, that is to say a road trip, with a motorhome, and in the end you have a lot of doubt and have let it go.
Plan a motorhome trip It allows you to have a lot of freedom, much more than you would have if you have to book hotels.
With a motorhome your trip can be much more open, you can adapt your trip at the moment and improvise on the go.
The good of travel by motorhome is that you can stop virtually anywhere, actually in the same places where you could park a car.
Of course if at any time you prefer a campsite you will also find many options.
A motorhome trip It is an unforgettable, fun and highly recommended experience.
Europe is a perfect place for a motorhome route, places like Norway or Germany are ideal for such a trip.
Rental price of a motorhome
What is the price of renting a motorhome? That is the question that many people ask themselves when traveling by motorhome.
As with hotels or apartments, the season in which you plan to make your trip by motorhome influences the price.
But for you to get an idea, you can find a motorhome for € 90 a day in low season for a trip of 10 days or more.
In the event that your trip is in high season, such as the month of July or Easter, the price is € 160 per day.
The most expensive month is always the month of August and prices can go up to almost € 200 per day.
You also have to keep in mind that a deposit is usually requested that can be around € 800 / € 900 that will be reimbursed to you when the vehicle is checked.
In this example that we have taken into account to obtain a budget, they are motorhomes where up to 6 people can sleep.
If you think that a normal roadtrip is that you have to rent a car and also book hotels or apartments, you will see that the budget in the case of opting for a motorhome is much cheaper, and with total freedom of movement.
What's included in the price?
If you have never rented a motorhome, you will wonder what is normal to be included in the rental price.
This can vary greatly from one company to another, but some of the things you should include are:
- Bed and bath linen, such as sheets and towels.
- Kitchenware, such as casseroles, pans, plates, glasses, cutlery, etc.
- WC chemical
Some companies may also include for example camping tables and chairs or bike racks.
Where to rent a motorhome?
As with vacation rentals, in the case of motorhomes there is also a rental market between individuals.
Maybe you plan to rent private motorhomes, thinking of saving some euros.
The first thing I have to notify you is that it is an illegal activity if the owner of the motorhome has not declared the use of the vehicle as a rental vehicle.
As a second very important point to consider is the insurance that the caravan has, a private insurance will cover the driver who is established in the policy and that will leave you without insurance.
In the case of contracting additional insurance, the law indicates that this fact should be indicated to the two companies because otherwise it will be illegal.
In conclusion, my advice is that it is better to rent a motorhome in professional sites, with which you will have the assurance that everything is done properly.
