Renting a Camper Van

Are you thinking about renting a camper van to travel around? Have you been seeing all the digital nomads driving about around the country and feeling a twinge of jealousy? Do you wish it was you?

Well, you don’t have to be jealous! You can rent a camper van for yourself to get the real feel of it all without actually committing to the entire nomadic lifestyle.

Read on to learn all about camper van rentals and how you should go about the process.

The Logistics

Before you can even think about renting a camper van, you need to have the basics down.

You want to make sure you have a valid driver’s license. And if you’re thinking about renting a van in a foreign country, you need a valid driver’s license in that country as well since a passport will not suffice.

If you have that, you will also be required to purchase insurance on the rental vehicle.


You’ll also want to think about the cost of renting a camper van, as prices can add up quickly. Here are a few things you’ll be spending money on on the road:

  • Gas
  • Food
  • Water supplies
  • Dining out
  • Heating supplies if needed
  • Campsites (although there are many free options)
  • Other needs and wants along the way

Although your mileage wouldn’t need to be accounted for if you don’t plan on going far, if you are planning on moving around a lot, you may be charged for more mileage. Be sure to take that into account when renting the camper van.

If these logistics sound doable, let’s move on to some other camper van tips! And after you rent, you may realize that you love the lifestyle. That just means it’s time for you to look at to purchase!

Necessities for the Road

If you’ve never “lived” on the road before, then you may not know what is necessary and what is not. Here’s a few you may not have thought of.

Outdoor Equipment

Folding chairs to sit around a campfire may not always be included in the camper van rental, and you’ll definitely want them to be able to sit outside around a fire and admire nature. Not to mention you may want to enjoy the great outdoors while eating your meals.

Power Supply

Depending on the caper van rental, you may need to add an additional power station to the van. For instance, if the van was built for one person’s power supply, and you have two people, you may want to consider buying an additional portable power station.
