15+ Companies that offer Campervan Hire in Portugal

If you’ve ever dreamt of spending a week, month, or even longer travelling by campervan then you’re in luck. There are an increasing number of Portuguese and international companies that have campervans for hire in Portugal.

Travelling by campervan is a fun way to explore Portugal, and it’s a great way to thoroughly explore the country. Portugal is very campervan-friendly and, as well as campsites, many people wildcamp in carparks and open spaces around the country. While this is technically illegal, the authorities generally tolerate it for most of the year as long as there’s no risk of fire.

Travelling by campervan can also be an affordable way to travel, although it’s definitely not the cheapest way to see Portugal on a budget. Most companies charge between €50-80 per night for campervan hire, which is much more than it would normally cost to rent an Airbnb or cheap hostel and travel by public transport. Unless you’re travelling as part of a group, there are cheaper ways to get around Portugal.

Motorhome or campervan travel is more about the experience more than anything else. It’s about waking up in a new place every morning, getting away from hotels and apartment rentals, and getting to see parts of the world that you might not otherwise. If that sounds like your perfect trip, here are some companies that offer campervan hire in Portugal.

  1. I’ve used Siesta Campers a couple of times now. Both times with a VW California. Great friendly team 5 minutes from Lisbon Airport. Would definitely recommend.

  2. I have rented a van two times in Portugal. The first time I searched a lot on the internet to find good prices and ended up booking with Camper King Portugal https://camperkingportugal.com/ . I had a good experience overall, good value for money. The second time I rented on Airbnb (Yes, you can also rent RVs there). I checked the reviews of the host, he was a super host. Everything went great. I can recommend both.

  3. Used Yescapa. Got a vehicle with battery problems that left us without power steering or brakes on the highway, forcing an emergency stop. Informed the owner and we were able to fix it and keep going. Failed again multiple times, causing delays. As we got to the destination, when opening a window normaly, it disassembled on our hands. Were able to put it back. As we returned we were not returned our deposit because allegedly we had broken the window and still asked more money to fix it. Terrible experience!

  4. Had a terrible experience ourselves with Yescapa. The host was delayed by 3 hours, wasting our precious holiday time. The van was dirty and they even wiped the toilet down and then wiped the table to eat from down with the same cloth, disgusting. The van overheated on the way to Algarve and sat and waited for 2 hours for a truck and there was no replacement vehicle. Wasted holiday indeed.
