Why rent a VW camper van in Portugal ?

Portugal is a small country (3 times smaller than UK !) but it hides a splendid diversity of landscapes and soils. Taking the road in Portugal is a way to take in the sights in the space of a few days without having to travel hundreds of kilometres per step. This country is rich in history, heavenly beaches and unique natural areas.

And let’s not forget their wonderful cuisine, which is not the same whether you are inland or on the seafront, in the north or the south. Looking for inspiration ? Don’t hesitate to read our post on road trips in Portugal but also :

Your VW camper van : vintage or modern?

Our partner who rents these vans in Portugal is a great lover of VW camper vans. For a departure from Lisbon, he has 5 models of recent vans at your disposal (Camper and California models). For the vintage vans, the rental is only done in Faro for technical reasons (vintage vans do not support long road trips). Which version should you choose?

It all depends on your travel itinerary (if you want to cover the whole country, the modern version is better) and especially on the (Instagrammable) story you want to create. But what you need to remember:

1- Each van can accommodate up to 4 people (but 5 with 1 child).

2- The engines of the vintage VW camper vans are new. Recent vans are less than 3 years old.

3- Prices vary between €50 and €170 per night depending on the model and the season.

4- 24 hour Volkswagen assistance is included.

5- All vans are fully equipped and with care.
