Looking to travel around EU in a campervan rental. Does anyone have any sites/companies they would recommend? I will likely rent a campervan in Germany and am planning on heading east through Hungary, Croatia etc...

Thanks for your help! Reply to this

Jon,

There can be no better way to explore Europe than by motorhome. Your only problem will be the time available - and indeed money in your pocket if you're renting. You will have to decide quite clearly what you want to get out of your travels and that might lead you to specific places. Then decide on a route-plan and stick to it. Unable to recommend rental companies, but you could do worse that follow our route by motorhome last year through Slovenia, Croatia, Hungary and Slovakia. (See: Motorhome News from Eastern Europe)
For campsites you might try ACSI, always good sites, at http://www.campingcard.co.uk/gb/en/home/uc33-l2-n641/

Hello everybody !

I just want to share my experience, I've rent a campervan in Blacksheep company in France (Lyon, near the Alps) in May-June, during 6 weeks.
Visit Europe in campervan is really a cool thing to do, and it's very easy to park, especially if the campervan is discreet. It's quite economical and very easy and confortable to drive (air cooled and speed regulator!). Price was not so important, it's all include (km, insurance, equipment, multidriver...), and cars are brandnew Volkswagen T5 !
They can pick-up you at the train station or the airport of Lyon Saint-Exupery.
So I've start from France (Lyon), then I've bee to Italie, Slovenia, Hongary, Czeck Republic, Deutschland and come back to France. It was crazy, and very simple to find a place to stay in all this contries. A very beatifull road trip aroud the Alps. I recommend !
If you are interested, the website of the company is Blacksheep-van.com
Enjoy your road trip !

Rem, The Road tripper.

I'm selling my 29 foot American motorhome. It's a Fleetwood built 1992 class A. I'm asking €9000. At a savings of €150 per day it will pay for itself in two months!
I brought it to Europe in August of 1994. I would use it once or twice a year for five or six weeks each year. I may have missed a couple of years here and there. It's a wonderful way to travel.

You may e-mail me at: isaaclisa@msn.com

the motorhome is currently stored in the Czech Republic near Dresden Germany.
Good luck in your travels sincerely Isaac E Levy Reply to this

We bought a motorhome in march and travelled to Croatia. Beautiful country and worth the visit. Try Italy as well . The flexibility of the motorhome is great but its not a cheap way to travel. We too use ACSI but the costs still mount up. Reply to this
