Rental

Rental of a Motorhome and/or Bike

Some of our customers do not own a motorhome or camper (yet). In this case we can help you to set up a rental in the country your desired tour will take you, or in the UK, if you prefer to rent at home. The rental stations will be as close as possible to a major airport, where you have a high likelihood to find a flight to from your closest airport at home.

As many of our tours have excellent biking routes. We recommend bringing your own bicycle or rent one from our cooperation partners. You normally have a choice of renting a traditional bike, or an E-bike, which will allow you to see more during your biking trip. As the motorhome rental station in Limburg is only a few miles away from the bike rental station, you can either drive to the bike rental station and pick up the bikes yourself, or you can have them delivered to the motorhome rental station for a small fee.

Why rent a motorhome and fly directly to Europe?

  • You can choose the type of model you might want to buy in future. This is something that allows you to find out what you like and dislike about the specific model.
  • You save time by flying directly to the region the tour will take place, but you might need to travel a certain distance to the first campsite in order to not miss the welcome dinner, where the participants meet each other for the first time.
  • You can rent a left hand steered motorhome, which makes driving on the continent a lot easier, as you can see the traffic better. Also your body door, being on the right, will allow access to the cabin from the pavement side. We actually recommend buying a left hand steered motorhome, if you intend to do the majority of your travels on the continent! If you intend to do this we can also help you on getting this set up at very attractive prices.
  • The rental vehicle has the latest emission sticker and can therefore be driven also in low emission zones.
  • If you participate in one of our wintertime tours, you have a motorhome at your disposal, that is equipped with the right type of tires, as in certain countries in Europe your vehicle must be equipped according to weather conditions.

What do I need to bring with me?

  • You can just fly with your personal belongings, like on any other holiday. The motorhome is equipped with cable drum and connection cable, European standard plug set for 230 V, toilet chemicals, hose, etc.
  • You can rent different packages like: bedding, kitchen equipment, etc. for an additional charge.
  • In certain locations we can arrange also for bikes to be rented, which will give you a lot of freedom when we are travelling together. On many of our tours you will find excellent biking routes.
