Handy tips for relaxing motorhome hire in Spain

For a quick rundown, here are some ideas for hitting the road during your motorhome rental Spain holiday:


  • Due to the warm climate, Spain campervan hire during winter is exceptionally common. The milder temperatures encourage thousands to hit the road and enjoy camping in Spain. However, this also means that the roads, and sites, can get very busy.
  • Always look to book early, so you don’t miss out on a motorhome hire or RV rental Spain of your choice.
  • Camping sites do vary in price quite wildly, so check online first so you don’t get a shock at the prices. The camping sites themselves will of course vary, but there has been a substantial effort to improve quality across the board and everything you need should be available at most of the paid-for facilities.
  • English speaking is also very common so no need to worry if you need assistance from the locals during your motorhome rental Spain road trip.
  • Free parking is rare in the bigger cities and finding space will be difficult. If you find it hard to locate a spot for your rental camper van within the bigger cities, there are many spots on the outskirts. Hot water and showers are not difficult to find.
  • Whenever you travel in your motorhome or campervan hire in Spain, always keep your vehicle locked up and don’t pick up strangers. Even invest in an alarm and certainly padlock valuables if you are going for walks and leaving your RV rental isolated especially in remote places. Spain is a wonderfully friendly country, but you can always be unlucky.
