what budget should you plan for?

You want to go on vacation in a motorhome this summer, but you do not know how much to budget for it? Let’s do a check in !

This year, camper vans and campervans are popular on the vacation route. If the adventure of “van life” tempts you, here are some tips to plan your vacation budget !

If you don’t have one, the best way to go on a motorhome vacation is to hire. For this, you have several possibilities: go through a professional or rent a motorhome from a private individual, but beware, this last possibility is not necessarily cheaper, and individuals often have older and dilapidated models than rental companies. .

Motorhome holidays: rental, a significant cost

Several websites exist to compare prices, and big names in short-term rental, such as Hertz or Avis, also offer motorhomes in their catalog: according to our observations, count around 700 to 1,600 € per week. These rates vary greatly depending on several parameters: the time of year, the region where you have chosen to rent the vehicle, or the category of motorhome (campervan, low profile, overcab, or integral).

Regarding additional costs, there is of course the fuel to plan: depending on the models of motorhomes, it is necessary to count a consumption ranging from 8 to 12 liters per 100 km. Then, it’s up to you to take the secondary roads, or the highways to toll : a motorhome, if it does not exceed 3.5 tonnes and 3 meters high, falls into “category 2” of the toll pricing (“category 3” for those over 3 meters high). Internet sites such as ViaMichelin or Mappy will allow you to obtain an estimate of these costs, depending on your route.

Finally, once you arrive at your destination, you will surely have to park on a camping area : some are free, and others pay. Count from 8 to 15 € for a day (24 hours), depending on the formula and the location: in fact, some packages give you access to services, which will allow you to fill up with clean water and empty your tank. wastewater, or even access to electricity.
