Camping despite Corona: The most important travel information

Back to news

Corona causes many unexpected circumstances in your travel behavior. But with a campervan you can avoid many things, because in times of Corona it is the safest way to travel.

Our campervans are the perfect companions with many different advantages:
  • Flexibility: With one of our campervans you can flexibly decide where you want to go and follow the latest travel advice. A little tip from us: Germany has beautiful corners that you can visit with your camper 😉
  • Safety: We clean and disinfect our campers thoroughly. On request it is possible to make the camper delivery/return contactless. Furthermore you travel in your own four walls and can keep the minimum distances well and travel almost contactless.
  • Time out: In a camper you can escape the crowd, because it offers you your home on four wheels. With your own kitchen, bathroom, sleeping area and even the outdoor seating you can enjoy nature far away from mass tourism.

Camping vacations allow you to switch off, decelerate the daily routine and see the essential things in life again. Start your adventure and draw new strength surrounded by nature - alone or with your favorite people.

Self-sufficient campers

Particularly of advantage during this time are self-sufficient mobile homes, i.e. those with a fully equipped bath incl. toilet and shower, a kitchen and a self-sufficient power supply e.g. via a solar panel, in order to make as independent and contactless a vacation as possible.

The following of our models offer you this comfort:

Also our vans like the VW Bulli California Ocean and the Pössl Campster as well as our MINI (add-on) are equipped with a kitchen. You can also rent a mobile toilet, an additional cool box and an outdoor shower from us to make your camping trip even more self-sufficient with these models.
