Driving in Europe by campervan


Looking for cheap RV hire in Holland? Camperfans rents out easy-to-drive Volkswagen campervans, fully equipped and suitable for every European road trip!

 

The right wheels
Camperfans rents out easy-to-drive compact fully equipped Volkswagen campervans, most suitable for European roads. Meet them here!

Parking
Always make sure that your belongings are out of view and try to park your camper in secured parking lots when parking in cities. Parking lots are in every city or town and are relatively cheap. On campsites or RV parks itself parking (and leaving things visible in your camper) shouldn’t be a problem.

Tip: Going by public transport or bike can be quite a nice experience if travelling from your campsite or RV park for a city/day trip.

Yellow license plate
Good to know: The Dutch (yellow) licence plate doesn’t cause any commotion or hard feelings when travelling throughout Europe.

Fuel prices
In general fuel is more expensive on highways than in (the outskirts of) cities or in smaller towns. If you click Global Patrol Prices you will notice that gas prices in The Netherlands are the second most expensive in Europe. Although in small steps; the more you drive away from Amsterdam, the cheaper fuel gets. Nevertheless fuel prices, Amsterdam is the best start for every European road trip.

Safe money tip: If you’re entering a different currency zone and have money or change left it can be interesting to spend it on fuel.

Drive safely
Your safety is (entirely) in your own hands. On highways just go with the flow and drive easily and steadily at the right (hand) lane. Don’t hurry or drive stressed. A calm and steady style is far more economical as well.

European countries have restricted the use of cell phones in motor vehicles. In the Europe Union the use of handheld cell phones in a moving motor vehicle have banned (in some countries even if the engine is running). If you want to make a phone call (and you’re driving yourself) stop your car at an allocated parking place. Fines go upto € 726,- in Switzerland.

Safety tip: Don't put any camping gear around the driver’s seat which can ultimately block the pedals.

International Driving Permit
It depends on which European country you want to visit, but probably you need an International Driving Permit (or International Driving License). Apply for it in advance.

Breathanalyser in France
Under a new rule to toke effect on 1 July 2012 it's mandatory in France for all motorists to have a breathalyser test in the car. Drivers could be asked to show their alcohol testers to police, drivers caught without the test in their car will face a fine.

Good to know: 2 breathanalyser (NF approved) are part of the Camperfans Camper inventory.

Emergency call
112 is the European emergency phone number, available everywhere in the EU, free of charge. It is possible to call 112 from fixed and mobile phones to contact any emergency service: an ambulance, the fire brigade or the police. When a person dials 112, a specially trained operator will answer the call. Depending on the national organisation of emergency services, the operator will either deal with the request directly or transfer the call to the most appropriate emergency service.

Operators in many countries can answer the calls not only in their national language, but also in English or French. If you don't know where you are, the operator will identify where you making the call are physically located and will pass it to the emergency authorities so that these can help immediately.

112 operators don't provide traffic and weather reports, general information or answers to queries.
