You can now rent the perfect campervan with Camptoo which offers all types of camper vehicles across Europe and Australia.

In 2014, Martin Peeters from the Netherlands introduced the brilliant idea of bringing campervans into the sharing economy. And just like how the home sharing idea came about, it was simply out of sheer frustration. He noticed that it was too difficult to rent a campervan for a weekend, while so many vans stood idle in garages and driveways.

It’s a win-win situation for both owners and renters, as it offers revenue for owners when they’re not using their vans while offering renters a diverse range of vehicle types at different price points. It’s a no-brainer, really. Just like Airbnb, but for campervans.

Camptoo is a sharing economy platform that connects the owners and renters of campervans, motorhomes and touring caravans. The platform launched in the UK and now all you need is a driver’s license, a sense of adventure – and you can hit the road in your rented campervan.

Martijn Peeters, CEO of Camptoo gave a comment on its UK launch: “Travelling by campervan or motorhome is a truly unique experience. Since you are not tied down by conventional transport schedules, you have the opportunity to go with the flow on your travels and encounter sights you would only ever see on the road.”

Camptoo gives renters a choice of almost 1,500 vehicles spread across Europe, and from more than 200 across Australia – a proof of how many unused campervans are out there.

The vehicles offered range in size, style, age and facilities, catering to all travellers. Whether young adventurers headed for festivals or active pursuits like surfing and hiking, families wanting the freedom to create their own itinerary as they travel with the kids, or the more discerning traveller looking for luxury on four-wheels, Camptoo has got you covered.

Peeters added: “We created Camptoo to bring that sense of freedom to travellers, getting people doing what they love from the moment they wake up without the restrictions that come with traditional hire companies.

“Driving around the UK or to the continent has always been a popular style of holiday for Brits so we’re excited to make campervan travel accessible to the masses by bringing the cost of usage down.”
