We are a Dutch family who likes to travel around. Since we have children, we prefer to travel in a motorhome. It’s the freedom to go and stop wherever you like and always having a toilet and something to eat or drink at hand. You don’t have to unpack your luggage and the children have more space to play.
We have hired a motorhome in South Africa, Australia and in Germany (for travelling through Scandinavia and Germany). The first time to South Africa we arranged our trip with a travel agency, because we felt more secure that way. If something goes wrong, you can always relay on the agency. The second year we liked to go back to South Africa since we had such a great time the year before. This time we searched around the Internet for a good flight deal and booked our motorhome directly at the motorhome rental company. Our holiday was much cheaper than the year before. We made sure that we where well insured. It is possible to arrange travel insurance directly at an insurance company, independent from a travel agency or the motorhome rental company. For our trips to Australia and Scandinavia we spend again a lot of time to find all rental companies to compare prices, campsites and overnight stops, and interesting places to visit. We found that there is often great difference between rental rates, and it's certainly worthwhile to shop around.
Spending so much time searching on the internet brought us to the idea that it would be a lot easier if you could find all motorhome rental companies on one site. To achieve that, we started with allmotorhomerentals.com.
Apart from rental companies, we also added travel agencies on the site, because all year round (especially in the low season) you can find great flight and motorhome deals with them.
When you are going to travel around with a motorhome you want to prepare where you can spend the night, so we have added campsite portals and sites where you can find motorhome stopovers. For finding your way, we added route planners so you don’t get lost. We have also added important travel links, so you can search for great places to visit, cheap flight tickets or a hotel to spend a first or last night. In the future we would like to add the possibility to share your experience with motorhome rental companies.
We have become so enthousiastic about motorhome travel, especially traveling around with children is much easier in a motor home that we have bought our own 6-berth Bürstner A574. In 2016 we changed it for a smaller campervan a Ford Nugget with rooftop tent.
