What to do if it keeps on raining


Looking for budget motorhome hire in Europe? Camperfans rents out easy-to-drive Volkswagen campervans, fully equipped, for every European road trip!

 

Shelter
Although we had our worst and best times sheltering for severe rain, camping is never fun when you're perpetually wet, so try to stay dry whatever it takes!

Europe hasn’t got the steadiest of climates, so you cannot always count on great weather. If it rains heavily with gloomy forecast it is time to strike your tent, pack your bag and drive to a place where the sun shines (another big advantage of not making camping reservations). A small movement can be a big difference between wet and dry; go more inlands or closer to the coast line, just moving to the other side of a mountain can help too.

Keep it dry (only if you use our extra dome tent)
Put as much stuff in your car as you can, since this is always the driest place.
Due to heavy wind your tent's fly sheet can be blown against the inner sheet and wet it: tighten the lines.
If your tent is pitched properly, it won't leak through unless there's something wrong. As long as the inner sheet doesn't touch the fly sheet, your tent should be waterproof.
Sleeping in a tent is very uncomfortable when lying in a puddle of water, make sure your tent is pitched on slightly higher surface than its surroundings.
Bring a waterproof tarp (a free option). Tarps can be made into a canopy, used as a footprint under your tent to keep water from seeping through the seams. It can even be thrown over top of the tent for added rain protection. 

Thing to do
It can be quite a challenge if you travel with children, here are some ideas if you wait until the rain stops:

- Go by bus to the nearest city
- Play a game of chess
- Read a book
- Go to a museum
- Visit a theme park
- Go to an inner swimming pool (in every European city)
- Play darts or pool billiards in a pub
- Play bowling
- Go to a movie (can be difficult because of the English dubbed, big cities show English (or subtitled) movies
