Why you can trust us about campervan rentals

Ring of Kerry Ireland campervan

If you’re new to this blog (welcome!), we want to share a few reasons why you can trust us about all things campervan-related:

Now do you understand why I said we’re obsessed!?

I mention all of this to let you know we have a lot of personal experience on this subject. We truly know what we’re talking about and in this article we’re sharing our expertise with you.

Also, we simply love connecting with others who are interested in RV and campervan adventures, so let’s be friends!

Our personal experience traveling in Italy 

Colosseum Rome Italy
TWS Director of Content, Amanda, in Rome

While we haven’t personally rented a campervan here (yet!), our TWS team has spent a cumulative 6+ months living and traveling in Italy and have experienced a lot of what this country has to offer.

We genuinely think a campervan or motorhome would be the perfect way to explore Italy. Having your own home on 4 wheels really gives you an added level of freedom that you just don’t have when you’re staying in a hotel or Airbnb.

With our experience in Italy combined with our extensive knowledge of campervan travel, you can trust that we know what we’re talking about in this article and are sharing tips that will truly help you plan your own trip. 

Our top campervan rental recommendation

If you just want to skip to our overall recommendation, here it is:

We recommend using Motorhome Republic to compare all rental options for your dates.

Spoiler Alert: Our top pick for companies in Italy is Anywhere Campers. More on that later!

We highly recommend you continue reading this guide as it is packed with insider tips on what to look for when choosing your vehicle, mistakes to avoid, and some other companies we’d recommend if you have a different budget or travel needs.

How to book a campervan rental in Italy

Motorhome Republic filters

Trying to figure out which company to rent a campervan through can be a daunting task. 

We’ve done it 4 times now, so we know how overwhelming it can be the first time.

Our go-to place to find the best campervan rentals in a particular destination is Motorhome Republic. This is an aggregate (kind of like what Booking.com is for hotels or what Discover Cars is for car rentals) that rounds up all the options in one place so you can easily compare them

We really like using their filters because you can input the number of travelers, as well as other important features like “automatic transmission” and amenities, like a toilet or shower. 

Additionally, you can choose to display options within a price range or filter by highest reviews, making it a really handy and user-friendly tool.

Best campervan rental companies in Italy

Terrazza del Pincio Rome Italy

Okay, you’ve got Motorhome Republic pulled up for your dates and you can see all your options… But how do you even begin to choose between the companies?

Being that we’ve personally rented campervans all around the world (and have built 3 of our own!), we feel like we have a really good handle on what to look for. 

The companies below have been hand-picked by us, and we think each can be a good choice depending on what it is you’re looking for.

We’ve scoured reviews, compared specs, and analyzed prices to bring you a comprehensive list of the best campervan rentals in Italy so the decision is a little simpler for you.

We’re sharing which company we would rent with, but we’ll also highlight some other companies in case you think a different one would be a better fit for your personal needs or budget.

For each company, we’re sharing pros, cons, and price points (budget or mid-range) to make this big decision a breeze.

Anywhere Campers

Anywhere Campers Adria
Image source: Anywhere Campers
  • Price range: mid-range
  • Recommended for: couples or smaller families
  • Pick-up/drop-off locations: it’s in the name – Anywhere!
  • Check availability here

Anywhere Campers is a flexible one-way rental service with a fleet of 50+ motorhomes across 35 countries.

Their big selling point is that you can pick up anywhere, anytime. From their website: “Whether it’s an early morning at an airport in Paris, or a dock in Oslo at midnight, we’ll be there.” Pretty badass, if you ask me!

And when your trip is over, you don’t need to drop off at a depot – Anywhere Campers will come to you. 

Pros:

  • Flexible pickup and drop-off.
  • Manual and automatic transmission available.
  • All-inclusive rental price includes a fully-equipped kitchen and bedroom, as well as extra amenities like a BBQ grill, camping furniture, and 2 bicycles.
  • Responsive customer service and roadside assistance.

Cons: 

  • Not a huge selection of vehicles, though they do offer both vans and motorhomes.
  • You need a debit or credit card that allows online payments. Probably not an issue for most, but good to know.
  • Their motorhomes have a max capacity of 5 adults, but they recommend traveling with fewer than that for the sake of comfort.

McRent

McRent Ireland campervan
  • Price range: mid-range
  • Recommended for: spontaneous travelers
  • Pick-up/drop-off locations: Bologna, Brindisi, Milan, Modena, Pisa, Rimini, Rome, Sardinia, Sassari, Turin
  • Check availability here

McRent is one of the largest campervan and motorhome rentals in all of Europe with hubs in 17 countries. They have vehicles ranging from pop-up vans to large, fully-integrated motorhomes. 

This would most likely be our second choice for campervan rentals in Italy, as they have a large selection of layouts and availability for last-minute offers.

Pros:

  • They sometimes offer exclusive deals for last-minute bookings, though vehicle selection may be limited.
  • The hiring fee includes an awning, bike rack, gas bottles, balancing wedges, water hose, and cable.
  • Vehicles are guaranteed to be no older than three years and include heating, cooking facilities, and a bathroom with sink, shower, and toilet.

Cons: 

  • Manual transmission only, so ya gotta be able to drive a stick.
  • Dish sets and bedding are not included in the rental fee and cost extra.
  • One-way booking is not available, so you have to begin and end your road trip at the same station (this is the case with most campervan rental companies).

Motorhomes Italy

Motorhomes Italy campervan rental

One of the biggest rental companies in the country, Motorhomes Italy’s huge selection of pickup and drop-off locations makes it easy to plan a road trip no matter where your itinerary takes you.

They have a handful of models to choose from, most of which are on the larger side. This could be a good choice if you’re traveling with a bigger group or family.

Pros:

  • Lots of pickup and drop-off locations throughout the country
  • One-way rentals available from one depot to another
  • All vehicles are self-contained (meaning they have toilets!)
  • All models have high roofs, so you can stand up inside

Cons: 

  • One-way rentals may cost extra
  • Manual transmission only
  • Bed linens and kitchen accessories are not included

VanItaly

VanItaly campervan rental Italy
  • Price range: mid-range
  • Recommended for: couples or small families
  • Pick-up/drop-off locations: Bologna, Florence, Gatteo, Milan, Rome, Venice
  • Check availability here

This is the only rental company in Italy to specialize in converted vans – so all their vehicles are smaller and easier to drive than an RV or motorhome.

Having a smaller vehicle makes it much easier to drive and park, whether you’re traveling a narrow, winding mountain road in the Dolomites or a compact cobblestone street in Rome.

Pros:

  • Discounted rates for long-term rentals
  • Both manual and automatic transmission available

Cons: 

  • Not a lot of different layouts to choose from
  • Not all vehicles are self-contained
  • Bedding/linen and kitchen accessories are not included

Roadsurfer

Roadsurfer campervan rental Italy
  • Price range: budget to mid-range
  • Recommended for: small groups or families

  • Check availability here

Founded in Germany in 2016, Roadsurfer now has a fleet of more than 5,000 vehicles across Europe and North America. They offer one of the widest selections of campervan and RV rentals on the market.

Their sleek vehicles come with interiors that are comfortable and functional, if not as “aesthetic” as some other companies. Automatic transmission is available in all models, and you can add a second driver free of charge.

Pros:

  • Tons of vehicles to choose from ranging in price and size, from compact campervans to full-blown RVs
  • Their website makes it very easy to compare vehicle options
  • Rentals include all cooking and dining essentials, camp table and chairs, and an awning
  • Minimum driver age is 18 in Italy, which is lower than most rental companies
  • Unlimited mileage
  • International travel is allowed throughout Europe (with a few exceptions)

Cons: 

  • Bedding is not included and costs an extra €35 per person
  • Not all vehicles are self contained; some have portable camping toilets available for a extra fee

Why hire a campervan or RV in Italy?

Lake Garda Italy

Still need a little convincing on the whole renting a campervan thing?

We get it. If you’ve never experienced traveling in a campervan, the idea of it can be a little daunting. Don’t worry though — we literally have all the resources you need to make your trip a success. 

First, let’s chat about why renting a campervan in Italy is a good idea. Scratch that. An AMAZING idea.

a) You can save (lots of!) money.

Renting a campervan is like having a car, a hotel, and a kitchen all in one place

Sure, the total cost per day isn’t cheap, but consider what it would cost to book a hotel room, rent a car, and eat out for every meal.

Most likely, a campervan will save you quite a bit of money.

b) You have ultimate freedom.

Cinque Terre Hike Italy

With a campervan, you have more flexibility than if you are staying in hotels. 

Do you like a place? Stay longer. 

Want to move on more quickly? Go for it. 

Got a local tip and you want to switch up your route completely? Consider it done!

While having campground reservations is recommended at least a day or two in advance (more on that later), you have the ability to have a less rigid route. 

c) It’s the adventure of a lifetime!

You’ll be telling your grandchildren about this adventure. 

’Nuff said. 

When to book your campervan rental in Italy 

Buca di Bacco Positano Amalfi Coast Italy

If you’re planning to rent a campervan in Italy, listen up because this is crucial… 

Book your vehicle as early as possible. (This applies to all companies on this list.)

During popular travel seasons (like summer), the best models get snagged up fast! 

Where to pick up your campervan in Italy

Depending on the company you rent with, there are plenty of pickup locations throughout Italy. Some common pickup locations include Rome, Bologna, Milan, Florence, Turin, and Venice.

What types of campervans or RVs are available?

Campervan Hire Scotland Campground

There is a huge variety to choose from. 

We’ve listed a handful of different types below, but if you’re still confused, hop down to the next section where we’ve broken down some of the major things to consider that’ll make your decision easier.

  • Low-roof converted minivan: ideal for budget-minded adventurers
  • Pop-up campervan: iconic old-school campervan style
  • High-roof campervan: spacious while still easy to drive and park
  • Mini-motorhome: home on wheels, perfect for a young family
  • Large motorhome: pile in the kids, bikes, and a dog for an epic road trip

Things to think about when choosing a rental vehicle

Campervan rental

Consider your answer to the following questions, as they will help you narrow down the best campervan rental for your personal needs.

How many people are you traveling with?

How comfortable are you driving a large rig? 

If you have an RV at home, perhaps driving a motorhome will be no big deal for you. However, if this is your first time in a larger vehicle, a campervan will be an easier transition for you. 

In short, our advice is to get the smallest possible size you think will work for you. 

What is your budget? 

How much does a campervan cost? | Two Wandering Soles

The answer to this question might help you narrow down your rental choices, so it should be one of the first things you really dive into. 

In general, a campervan will be cheaper than an RV. And a low-roof vehicle will be cheaper than a high-roof vehicle.

Psst! If you’re curious about how much a campervan rental in Italy costs, we have a whole section about that. Jump there now.

Do you want a high-roof vehicle?

Ireland campervan interior

Think about this one for a minute: Do you need to be able to stand up inside your campervan? 

This will help make getting dressed, cooking, and just hanging out more comfortable. But it will mean you’ll likely be in a higher price bracket. 

If a low roof isn’t a deal-breaker, you can probably save quite a bit of money. 

Our personal opinion: We’ve had lots of experience in both low-roof and high-roof vehicles. When we were on a budget, it was a great way for us to save money, especially when we were traveling in places where we spent a lot of time outside. However, once we spent more time in a high-roof van (and now that we travel with a child!) I don’t know if we could go back to a low roof. It’s honestly just so much more comfortable being able to stand up!

How luxurious of a set-up do you need?

Lola campervan
The 3rd campervan we built for ourselves is pretty luxurious!

From super basic to extra bougie, there are all types of campervan and RV rentals. Determining your budget is the first step, as this will help you narrow down your options. 

From there, think about your personal preferences: Are you used to roughing it? Do you have a lot of camping experience? Or will splurging for a more plush vehicle be worth every penny to you? 

Keep your answers in mind as you’re sifting through your rental options.

Can you drive a manual transmission?

In Italy, many vehicles have manual transmissions, so if you’re able to drive a stick shift, you will have more options to choose from.

If you can only drive automatic transmission or know you’ll just feel a lot more comfortable (no shame there!), don’t worry; there are options for you! Just know you will have a smaller selection and you will likely be paying a bit more money overall.

How much does a campervan rental in Italy cost?

Things to Do in Florence Italy

Campervan rentals will vary drastically, depending on the following factors: 

  • which company you choose
  • type of vehicle
  • time of year
  • manual vs. automatic transmission
  • how far in advance you make your reservation

To give you a general price range:

  • 1 week in Italy in July (peak season) for a 2-berth campervan will cost about €887 / $945 USD (priced in April 2024) 
  • 1 week in Italy in October (shoulder season) for a 2-berth campervan will cost about €750 / $800 USD (priced in April 2024) 

Other costs to consider

In addition to paying the nightly rental fee, you won’t want to forget these other things:

  • Additional rental add ons (make sure you understand what is included with your company and what is an extra fee)
  • Campground fees
  • Insurance
  • Gas
    • Insider Tip: Be sure you know whether your vehicle is gas or diesel so you fill up at the proper pump at the gas station.

Top places to visit on your Italy road trip

Montepulciano Italy

You could easily spend months getting lost and falling in love with the magic of Italy. But if you’re looking for a list of the very best places to put on your itinerary, we’ve got you covered. 

We chose these places specifically because they are ideal for visiting in a campervan or RV. Use this list to start planning your perfect Italy road trip route!

Good to know: You might notice that we purposely left cities off this list. That’s because cities are not as fun to navigate with a large vehicle and finding parking can be a pain. That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t add them in, but we’d highly recommend focusing your route around the places below.

1. Tuscany 

Tuscany Italy

Tuscany is one of the most visited regions in Italy, second only to Veneto (where Venice is located).

Though most famous for its iconic landscapes and award-winning wines, Tuscany’s highlights are chock full of Renaissance art, UNESCO World Heritage Sites, outstanding cuisine, pristine nature, and some of the most significant architectural marvels in the world.

With scenic routes and quaint villages dotted amongst rolling hills and endless vineyards, Tuscany is the perfect region for a campervan trip. You’ll have the freedom and flexibility to explore popular sights like Florence, as well as hidden gems most tourists miss.

2. The Dolomites

For the truly adventurous, the dramatic peaks, lush valleys, and crystal-clear lakes of the Dolomites provide an ideal setting for a campervan trip.

Dream with me for a sec: You wake up to panoramic mountain views and sip your morning coffee in the crisp, fresh air of the Italian Alps. Then, you drive from one cute, cozy village to the next, or head out on a hike to take in the breathtaking alpine scenery…

Okay, I think I just convinced myself to book a trip to the Dolomites!

3. Lake Como and Lake Garda

Lake Garda Italy
Lake Garda

Less than an hour north of Milan, the lush gardens, elegant villas, and sparkling azure waters of Lake Como look like something out of a romance novel (or a Star Wars film – some scenes were shot here!). 

While Lake Como is home to some seriously bougie resorts and celebrity vacation homes (say “ciao” to Madonna and George Clooney!), Lake Garda offers a more laid-back vibe. The southern shore is buzzing with amusement parks and tourist attractions, but head north and you’ll find tranquil harbors and hidden mountain villages.

Just a few hours apart, you can easily visit both of these iconic lakes on your campervan trip, combining pristine nature, outdoor adventure, history, and luxury.

4. Puglia 

Ostuni, Puglia, Italy

The Puglia region stretches out along Italy’s Adriatic Coast from the “heel of the boot” to the “spur” (that’s what we’re calling it, anyway). 

This region isn’t quite as high on the tourist radar yet as areas like Venice and Rome, so even the summer crowds don’t feel as chaotic.

There’s so much to discover in this region that every type of traveler can find their muse:

History buffs can explore whitewashed hill towns like Ostuni, the baroque architecture of Lecce, and the UNESCO-listed trulli (stone huts) of Alberobello. Foodies can indulge in fresh seafood, locally-produced olive oil, and distinctive wines. And nature lovers can enjoy miles of coastline dotted with pristine beaches, sea stacks, and turquoise grottos. 

5. The Amalfi Coast 

Atrani Amalfi Coast Italy

The Amalfi Coast is a world-famous vacation destination known for its breathtaking coastal scenery and colorful cliffside villages. Renting a campervan can give you a whole new perspective on this tourist hotspot.

Explore popular towns like Positano, as well as hidden gems like Atrani and Praiano. From the latter, you can hike the Path of the Gods for jaw-dropping views of the Tyrrhenian Sea and the Lattari Mountains.

Oh, and did we mention we have a perfect Amalfi Coast itinerary that covers all of the above and more?? Click below to skip all the work and get your itinerary today!

Psst! If you like the sounds of the Amalfi Coast, we think you’ll also love Cinque Terre.

Italy campervan rental FAQs

Vernazza Cinque Terre Italy

I get it — there is a lot to think about when it comes to renting a campervan in Italy. 

Let’s go over some common questions and see if we can get them answered!

Do I need an international driver’s license to rent a campervan in Italy?

International Driver's Permit IDP

Yes – unless you have a European license.

If your driver’s license is issued by a member of the EU or the EEA (European Economic Area), you can rent a campervan in Italy with just your home license.

Otherwise, you will need an International Driver’s Permit (IDP) in addition to your home license.

An IDP basically translates your driver’s license into several languages, including Italian. The rental car staff will ask to check your IDP before they hand over the keys.

To get an IDP, bring your driver’s license, two passport photos, and the $20 USD permit fee to your local AAA store (you can get your passport photos taken at the AAA store as well). Fill out the IDP application, pay the fee, and they will complete the rest. 

The IDP is valid for 1 calendar year. 

Can I bring a child on a campervan trip?

DIY Campervan ProMaster with a baby

Absolutely. We’ve brought our daughter on many campervan trips! 

In fact, we’d say it’s a great way to travel with a baby or older children.

You will need to select a vehicle that has enough seating for your family. And you will need to think about what you will do about a sleeping space.

Which is better: Campervan or RV?

The answer to this is truly a matter of personal opinion. So here’s our opinion:

If you’re traveling solo or as a couple, we’d absolutely recommend a campervan to keep the size to a minimum. However, if you’re traveling with a small family, a campervan may be too small to fit you all comfortably, so a small motorhome might be a better option.

Insurance for your campervan trip

Manarola Cinque Terre Italy

Insurance is always one of those tricky topics to write about because it widely varies from person to person depending on the amount of risk you are willing to take. 

When traveling, we always make sure we are covered (we’ve heard some horror stories of accidents happening abroad).

Read the fine print of your credit card: A typical credit card rental car insurance policy only covers 4-door sedans and not campervans, so don’t rely on that coverage. 

As always, whether you get campervan rental insurance or not, we recommend getting medical travel insurance

Psst! We have an entire guide to how to choose the best travel insurance policy for you that should be helpful!

What to pack for a campervan trip

Packing cubes campervan

We have a whole checklist of things to bring for your campervan trip, but here are some items you really don’t want to forget:

  • Aeropress: If you are a coffee drinker and your rental company doesn’t include a coffee maker (many don’t), definitely pack this! Of course you’ll want to indulge in an espresso now and then, but making your own coffee will save you quite a bit of cash.
  • Rubber bands and/or chip clips: This is something that is often overlooked, but important to keep the food you buy sealed (think bags of granola, crackers, etc.).
  • Spices and oil: When going on a campervan trip, we always like to bring our own spices so we don’t have to stock up. You can bring mini containers filled with your faves (we bring high-quality salt, pepper, cayenne, and any others that strike our fancy). We like this leak-proof container for storing coconut oil and this one for storing olive oil.
  • Lightweight towel: If your campervan rental does not include towels in the rental price (many charge extra), bring your own! We like this microfiber one or this Turkish towel.
  • Travel lumbar pillow: If you have a bad back (like Ben!), this would be clutch! He had some back issues during our campervan trip to Ireland and was wishing we had packed his lumbar pillow. It’s way too bulky to fly with though, so I found this pillow for next time!
  • Universal outlet adaptor: A basic travel item that everyone should have so you can plug in your device anywhere. 
  • Shower shoes: Trust me when I say you don’t want to go barefoot in some of the campground showers! 
  • Travel slippers: The floors of your vehicle will inevitably get dirty, so it’s nice to have a lightweight pair of slippers to wear at night to prevent your feet from collecting all that dirt.

We even created this handy PDF downloadable checklist so you don’t forget anything. And it’s totally FREE!

Packing for a baby on a campervan trip

Campervan baby Scotland

This checklist has a whole section of all our baby-related items we recommend, but here are a few things we’d definitely recommend bringing if you are renting a campervan with a little one in tow.

  • Travel high chair: We love this portable high chair and use it in our personal campervan at home.
  • Travel tent: This is the sleeping tent that we used on trips when our daughter was under a year old. It packs up super small and gave her a safe space to sleep.
  • Inflatable bed bumpers: We’ve transitioned from the tent to these as our daughter has grown and they worked really well to transform a normal bed into a safe sleeping space for our toddler.
  • Your favorite baby foods: You’ll definitely find baby-friendly foods in Italy, but if you have favorites (freeze dried strawberries from Trader Joe’s are one of our go-tos for travel!), we’d recommend prioritizing packing snacks over diapers and wipes, as those will be easier to find anywhere.
  • Travel sound machine: We don’t go anywhere without this!
  • Tap light: This light is super handy at home or on travels.

Where to stay in your campervan

Val d'Orcia Tuscany Italy

You’ll be happy to know that there are tons of campgrounds all around Italy.

Some of Italy’s RV parks or “villages” have jaw-dropping views and tons of amenities. Some are just okay, and then there are some that… leave much to be desired. One thing that most campgrounds we’ve seen have in common is that they don’t seem to offer much in the way of seclusion or privacy from your neighbors.

If that doesn’t sound appealing to you, there are also lots of farms and private landowners that offer space on their property for travelers to park a campervan overnight. 

Garden Sharing is a platform similar to Airbnb where hosts can post their garden, farm, field, or other outdoor space they have available. This unique experience could be a great opportunity to connect with locals.

Again, these spots vary quite a bit in terms of both price and quality, so we recommend booking as early as possible to get the best selection.

Wild Camping 

Unfortunately, wild camping is generally prohibited in Italy and can incur some hefty fines. Areas with higher tourist traffic are particularly strict and are monitored diligently.

We’ve seen some other websites suggesting it may be possible to wild camp in some areas, but we personally wouldn’t risk it.

What to expect at campsites in Italy 

If you’ve done a lot of camping in the USA or Canada, then campsites in Italy might not be what you’re used to. Most of the campgrounds we’ve seen in Italy don’t scream “wilderness”. Rather, they’re more open spaces with a lot of RVs parked close to each other.

That said, we have seen some campgrounds in Italy that have amazing views. As long as you know what to expect and start booking early, we think you can find great campsites.
