Having previously used 'Share a Camper' we found that Camptoo was far more straightforward to enquire, book and complete - especially the insurance side. Keep it up, well done!! Will also look to hire campers in different countries too using your platform :)
How to hire a motorhome or caravan with Camptoo
Find an amazing motorhome or caravan
Choose a caravan or motorhome from our wide range that suits your holiday needs to make it that extra special. You can apply filters such as pick-up location, product types and the number of berths.
The advertisements give you a good overview of the caravan or motorhome, with pictures, descriptions and features. If you see something interesting, you can save it as a favourite to easily find it again the next time you are on Camptoo.
Ask a question or request a non-binding reservation
There are two ways to contact the owner of a motorhome or caravan via Camptoo: you can start a conversation by clicking the "Send message" button in the ad or you can directly "Request a reservation". If you’re still looking around, it is best to use the "Send message" option. Our owners are happy to answer your questions.
Once you have decided which motorhome or caravan you want to use for your holidays, it is best to "Request a reservation". The owner can then accept or reject your reservation. Even after the owner accepted your reservation request, you can still request other vehicles or even cancel the reservation. The reservation is only complete and final once you have made a payment.
Complete your reservation
Once the owner has accepted your reservation request, you can complete your reservation request. Finalize the simple verification procedure by updating your profile and fill in all the necessary details. Next, confirm your reservation by proceeding to the checkout. Complete your reservation request by paying a first installment of 50% of the total booking (with a maximum of $600) via our secure checkout process. 8 weeks before pickup we will send you a reminder to pay the balance.
Camptoo will transfer the funds to the owner once you have picked up your motorhome or caravan. This will guarantee that the motorhome or caravan will be there for you.
Please note: as long as you have not completed the reservation request, fellow travellers are still able to book the same vehicle for the same period. By completing the reservation request you agree to the terms and conditions of the hire.
Authorize the security bond
You have to authorize the security bond the latest two days before your departure. The security bond can vary from vehicle to vehicle and you'll find the $-amount for the bond in the insurance section of the listing. If nothing happens during the trip, the security bond will be refunded once your trip is over. If you want to insure your security deposit you can find proper excess reduction insurance here.
It can occur that you need to cancel your booking. In that case the cancellation policy will apply. We advise to get a travel insurance that properly covers you in case you would need to cancel your trip.
Our travellers about Camptoo
Lee About Camptoo
Beverly About Camptoo
Excellent service from Camptoo, easy to deal with, clear and understandable, no improvements required.
Maureen About Camptoo
Camptoo were great to work with, with every part of the hire. They clearly lay down their process and next steps, and questions were answered promptly. Sometimes we think we are taking a bit of a risk going outside the companies with the big reputations, but our experience with Camptoo was excellent and offers a cheaper option for hiring.
Our travellers about their hosts
Stephanie About the camper from Ahmar
Fantastic! We had one of the best trips we have had in ages. The camper was better than we expected it literally had everything we needed! Ahmar was awesome to deal with thank you so much
Sarah About the camper from Kath
We had a wonderful time in Kath’s Camper and communications with Kath couldn’t have been better. It was an easy pick up by cab from Hobart airport. We had some problems with the water pump but Kath was great at giving support over the phone and it didn’t dampen anything!
Graham About the camper from Radmilo
Our experience with Camptoo and Radmilo’s motor home was awesome. The motor home was in excellent condition with all accessories present and the handover and return of bond with Simon was seamless making the whole adventure one to remember - thoroughly recommended.
