Renting Campervans and Motorhomes Privately

Renting Campervans, Motorhomes and RV’s Privately. Airbnb has highlighted the opportunity to take advantage of privately owned property and this has turned into a great money making way of earning some extra cash from a spare room or vacant accommodation. Now you can rent campervans, motorhomes and RV’s privately. Uber works well in offering cheaper taxis and has certainly disrupted the taxi industry. This is the “sharing economy” where you can make money by renting out your stuff. We have started to see various companies setting up to do the same for campervans, motorhomes and RV’s. It is very appealing to campervan and motorhome owners who often are not able to use their campers all year around so renting them out helps cover some of their costs.

Where Do You Want to Collect your Campervan from?

Where Do You Want to Collect your Campervan from? This is one of the most frequent replies I make to emails that clients send to me.

In many you can hire at 21.  You must hold a credit card in your name in all cases. One Way Rentals in a Campervan One way hires are more expensive and in Europe there is an extra charge applied on the basis of Euro1.00 for every 1km between the pick up and drop off depots. This is because the hire supplier will have to send someone to pick it up and return it to its … Continue reading
