At 'Motorhomes' you will find a brief description of each motorhome. To make your choice easier, we have put together the following classifications: Bus camper (group A) - for those who prefer to rent a van and get lots of mileage. Compact (group B/C/D/E) - these models are the most popular because they are lower and less wind sensitive than the alcove campers. Alcove (group F/G/H) - spacious motorhomes, suitable for six people. An alcove camper can be identified by the "hump" above the cabin and is ideal for large parties.
A driver's license B is sufficient to drive the motorhome. However, the driver must be at least 24 years old and have held the B driver's license for at least 2 years on the date of commencement of the rental.
