1. List your motorhome or campervan for free

Have you ever thought of renting out your motorhome or campervan? You could earn an extra income, help fellow travellers experience the joy and freedom of camping, and be part of an amazing community. Camptoo is here to help you do just that.

If you decide to give it a go, just sign up on Camptoo and create your own advertisement. We’re happy to assist or even create the advertisement for you with no cost at all. The choice is yours! You can set the pricing, the availability, the specific house rules and much more.

2. You'll need a suitable insurance cover

Your campervan needs proper insurance cover while it’s rented out.

If you decide to accept the reservation request, you need an insurance provider that offers a hire cover option. This hire cover allows you to rent out your vehicle without losing your insurance cover.

Contact us via the Help page and we are happy to help you find the insurance provider you'll need.

3. Receive the first rental requests

Your advertisement is finished, so potential renters can now see your listed vehicle. To ensure that you are visible and get plenty of requests, we’ll boost your ad for a short time.

We’ll notify you via email or SMS if someone is interested in your vehicle. When you are considering a request and you're unsure, let us know and we're more than happy to help you every step of the way.

4. Accept the rental request

With the rental request, the potential renters send you a personal message in which they explain why your vehicle is perfect and where they are planning to travel to. You can look at their Camptoo profile with additional information as well as their reviews. We check the renter’s identity as well as the validity of their driving licence.

If you are comfortable and feel happy with the renter, feel free to accept the request. By accepting the request, you agree to the rental terms.

5. Payment process and deposit

Camptoo manages the whole payment process for you. Once payment has been made, contact details are made available to both parties to arrange the pick-up. The amount will be transferred to your account the next business day after the trip has started.

The renter also has to pay a deposit a few days before the departure. The deposit is usually 1,000€ for campervans and motorhomes and 500€ for caravans.

6. The adventure starts

Once the booking is paid in full (including deposit) the renter can start the journey! Camptoo provides a handy digital transfer form to document the start. All you need to do is conduct a vehicle inspection as you fill in the form and sign-off before handing over the keys!

7. Once the trip is over

You perform a final inspection and inform us as to whether the deposit can be returned to the renter. You are entitled to charge for extra mileage, cleaning costs, gas, and/or toll fees. Everything is simple and can be handled online. It won’t take longer than a few minutes.
