Why is it worth booking a campervan early?
An RV rental in Spain is the perfect way to enjoy this country. Away from major cities such as Madrid, Barcelona, Malaga, Bilbao, and Seville, Spanish roads are quiet, cutting their way through the vast distances and open vistas of this large peninsula. Spanish motorways are modern and well-maintained with plenty of service stations for rest breaks and gas. Beyond the motorways, country roads take you through attractive villages and a countryside resplendent with olive trees and vineyards. With a campervan in Spain, you have the freedom to travel at your own pace and really get a true taste of the country's cities and attractions. There are plenty of places to stop off overnight as you travel from coast to coast or meander your way from city to city. With the country getting very busy in the school summer holidays, and the months of June to August being incredibly hot, spring and fall are perfect times to enjoy a campervan hire in Spain. These are also popular rental times so we advise booking early. To take advantage of the best deals on camper rent in Spain and leave more spending money in your budget, we recommend booking between three and four months in advance. Camper hire in Spain can look expensive at first glance but when compared to the cost of hotel bookings, car hire, and dining out the price begins to look very competitive. Even more so when you add in the freedom it gives you. Our great deals also mean you can afford to take a longer break in this fascinating country. When you book early, not only will you save money on campervan rent in Spain, but you'll also enjoy personalized travel advice from our knowledgeable customer service team as well as fair and clear cancellation policies and no extra costs if you need to change your travel dates.
