Top 10 Reasons to Hire a Campervan
Here are 10 reasons why we think you should consider Campervan Hire Portugal
Flexibility. Campervans are undoubtedly one
of the most flexible ways to get around. What other mode of transport also
serves as your home, a place you can cook and even a toilet? With a campervan,
you have everything you need all in one place. Moreover, if you get bored
of a place, or decide to stay longer, then a campervan is your best friend,
as you are no longer tied into a stuffy hotel schedules and can come and go
as you please in your vehicle.
Cost. Campervan holidays are not the cheapest of pursuits,
we admit, but you need to compare it to all the other costs of a holiday. When you
take a normal trip, you would usually have to pay for hotels, restaurants and perhaps
a hire car. Well, with a campervan, all that is of course included. Therefore, when
you add up the cost (and hassle) of all these other expenses, campervans don’t usually
come out any worse, and are can often be cheaper all in all.
Friends. Campervan trips are one of the best ways to make
friends, mainly because of the places you stay. Camp sites often have fabulous social
scenes, with lots of evening entertainment and plenty of chances to meet new people.
For example, camp sites will regularly have pubs on site, as well as pools, evening
games, sometimes arcades and so on. What’s more, your campervan will be a talking
point to others who also travel this way, giving you something to strike up a
Nature. Visiting the countryside in a campervan
is one of the best ways to really get into nature. When you drive, or take a
tour bus or public transport, one night falls you are usually back in your
home or hotel, however with a campervan you can often spend the night in
the place you are exploring and then wake up to beautiful views in the
morning. Even in places where wild camping is not allowed, there will be
campsites nearby for you to park up in.
Comfort. Modern campervans are incredibly
comfortable and spacious machines. Unlike people staying in a tent, you get
air conditioning, fridges, heating, toilets and showers – often better
conditions than you would get in a hotel actually, and you certainly have
more control over the temperature! You also have powerful integrated speakers,
lights for the evening and fairly comfy beds. The days of campervans being
small, cramped and cold are long gone (unless you like that, as classic
vehicles are still available!).
That cozy feeling. There’s no better way to wake
up in nature than within a campervan. When you’re in a tent, it’s a mad panic
to exit the tent before it gets too hot, but in a cozy campervan with temperature
control, you can have a leisurely morning waking up and making a coffee etc.
Moreover, when the sound of rain thrumming on the glass and steel whilst you
doze off warm and dry cannot be beaten, in marked comparison to campers who
are wondering if their tent is about to spring a leak!
Winter trips. Don’t assume that campervan trips
are only for the summer, if you planning to visit a country that has well
defined seasons. Whilst it is true that summer is undoubtedly our most popular
season, you shouldn’t write off exploring in the winter. The winter season is
almost certainly cheaper, and what’s more you will find that many of the sites
you stay at will be far more empty of tourists. Moreover, winter holds its own
appeal in terms of the natural beauty of the area you are visiting, and offers
a perspective and a view that is far more rarely seen by visitors.
Classic Campervans. Come on, this one is on
everyone’s bucket list! Zooming off into the sunset in a cool and characterful
VW Campervan has to be one of the best and most iconic things to do. The bug
like wheels and the tyre on the front of the campervan are iconic and recognised
the world over, and it’s something that has to be tried once before you die.
Whilst they may not have all the mod cons, these vehicles are still incredibly
well designed, and will certainly be more than a match for your dream adventure.

Try before you buy. A lot of people who hire campervans
from us are interested in seeing if they enjoy a campervan holiday before they
fully commit to owning a campervan. This is a very valid reason to hire, as buying a
campervan (especially brand new) does not come cheap. Make sure that your campervan
dream is as much fun in reality, preferably by hiring for a few weeks and even over
a couple of seasons (summer and autumn for example) before you shell out on what
could be an extremely expensive purchase, second only to a house for most people.
No reliance on other forms of transport. Campervans
can be one of the best ways to get around if you’re planning a longer trip across a
country. This is because you don’t have any reliance on other forms of transport,
for example trains or aeroplanes. Being a bit delayed isn’t a problem and won’t
cause you to miss connections, the worst that can happen is that you are a bit delayed
in terms of your arrival at a campsite, however most campsite owners are very
understanding if they are warned in advance.
