Travelling by camper van is believed to be an exciting experience by most travelers. Renting a camper van is fairly easy as nothing more than your driving license is required. There are a lot of camper rental companies in Poland but, it is not cheap and in most cases you need to pay a deposit which you only get back after returning the vehicle undamaged.
Preparing your trip is of utmost importance. First of all, you should have time to get used to driving a camper van because such vehicles move much slower than the average car and you cannot drive everywhere in a camper so access is limited in many cases, parking for longer periods and contact with power points must be considered too. Disposing of liquid waste from camper vans must be planned because it is possible only in precisely defined places and it is often payable. Although, campers from rental companies are well furnished and equipped, it is a good idea to take extra furniture such as: a table, deckchairs and a canopy with you. A lot of people take their own bikes and campers often have special racks for transporting bikes and canoeing equipment.
