Sun, sea and sangria – there are many reasons why Spain is such a classic destination on European tours, but there is much more to this dynamic country than just tourist resorts and paella. Get away from the stereotypes: motorhome hire in Spain is a fantastic way to discover Spain more intimately and at your own pace. From the capital of Madrid to Málaga in the south, to Barcelona and the Basque Country in the north. Motorhome hire in Spain will allow you so much more scope to explore the myriad of regional and cultural differences that a traditional coach tour can't.
With the help of Campanda, you'll be able to locate the perfect motorhome to fit your needs. We have everything from compact pop-top vans to luxury A-class motorhomes with many including some really useful extras; such as camping furniture, kitchen utensils or a bike rack. If you're planning on coming into Spain from elsewhere in Europe, then why not pick up your motorhome on arrival? Rental motorhomes can be collected from a number of major cities in Spain and many are even available to pick up from airports. Just indicate your preferred destination for collection when you book online and you're all set!
Make sure that your chosen motorhome is fitted with a good air conditioning system, as it's no secret that one of the main attractions which draw travellers to Spain year after year is the agreeable climate. With temperatures rarely below 10°C in the winter in the south of the country, they soar during the summer months, regularly surpassing 30°C with central Madrid even hitting the 40°C mark in the July summer peak! There's a reason why they call it the frying pan of Spain. Visit this impressive, cosmopolitan city in the more amiable month of June and enjoy the coastal regions during the July-August spike.
The worldwide popularity of Spain in the summer means there is an abundance of commercial campsites to choose from, with plenty of facilities to keep you happy and children entertained. Expect hot showers, power hook-ups, bars and food shops and WI-FI internet access. Many even offer sports facilities, swimming pools, or the chance to take lessons in a number of water sports such as windsurfing or scuba diving. Many campsites only operate during the summer months, so travellers are advised to check beforehand when their preferred campsite operates to avoid disappointment.
If however, you prefer to steer clear of the commercial campsites and are attracted by the idea of heading off the beaten track, then wild camping is widely acceptable in many locations in Spain, with it being popular among motorhome users to spend three or four nights out in the wild, and returning to a camp ground to make use of the better sanitary facilities and power hook-ups for a night or two. Just make sure you check local laws beforehand, to safely store away any valuables and to not light any campfires.
If your time in Europe is limited, then motorhome hire in Spain is a great excuse to take advantage of the EU's open borders by crossing over to Portugal for the weekend, or journeying across the Pyrenees mountain range to France. Just be sure to check with the motorhome hire company in Spain beforehand. Some suppliers are even happy for their vehicles to be used in Morocco.
The Spanish Mediterranean islands are also popular destinations among motorhomers, with the islands of Tenerife, Majorca and Gran Canaria among some of the most popular.
