Renting a Motorhome in Italy FAQ's
Prepare the following document for motorhome rental pickup in Italy
Firstly, make sure you return on time and give your self extra time for the inspection and local paperwork. If you return late, they may charge you an additional day, plus you could be causing the next rental party to have to wait.
If you are going to be late due to some emergency, you should inform the rental company.
Secondly, return the campervan in a similar condition of cleanliness as when received. If it is excessively dirty, you can be charged an additional cleaning fee.
The minimum age in Italy is 21, some suppliers may charge an underage fee if you are under 25 and restrict the size of campervan to smaller 2 and 4 berth categories. When booking, enter your correct age and the system will only display campervans that you would be permitted to drive given your age,
The answer is No free camping or wild camping is against the law in Italy, However, Italy does have some free camping sites. These free camping sites are coming under tighter restriction and local authorities have prohibited free camping in certain areas. Signs will show overnight parking is prohibited, but you will also see a sign guiding you to official camp grounds. Aree di Sosta are official Italian motorhome and camper van rest areas.
The number of motorhomes on rental fleets are limited, and you should aim to book as early as possible, a few months in advance or longer if possible, especially during peak season or bank holiday weekends.
Italy is a fantastic place to tour on your own and campervan rental is an excellent way to do this. Boasting stunning natural scenery such as mountains, rolling hills, lakes and valleys, this country is best explored by hiring a motorhome, offering you an experience that will leave a lasting impression.
One of the most visited countries in Europe, Italy is filled with tourist destinations, and a self-tour is a popular way to visit the country. This is especially true throughout the ‘leg’ of the ‘boot’ to witness the stunning Italian countryside and the coasts of the Adriatic and Tyrrhenian seas.

Italian Toll Fees are Expensive
Italy has a good motorway system, but to use them you will need to pay the toll fee. According to the official site, Autstrade expect to pay €9 per 100 km, which is on the expensive side. It is best to have Cash in Euros, as some still do not accept credit or debit cards. Payment will be made at the toll payment booths that are signed as ‘Alt Stazione’
How much is to Rent a Campervan in Italy?
The cost will vary depending on season and size of vehicle, but expect to pay in the range from around $45 per day to $120 for the full size RV models.
The weekly and daily cost of rental will vary with time of the year. High season will always be more expensive. So if you are on a budget or are flexible then consider delaying until September or going just before summer season starts, when it will the rental rates are cheaper. This price includes the rental of your vehicle and mandatory insurances. The insurance will come with an excess, but an option at check out is available to buy additional cover to waive any local excess.
How much is the Local Excess in Italy
The local excess will vary depending on supplier and campervan model selected, but it is expensive in the range of €1000 - €2,000. The idea of the local excess is similar in car rental, if you cause damage you will be held liable for thee excess amount. The idea is that you will take out local additional daily cover to reduce or waive the local excess, add a considerable amount to the rental price. The best option is to prepurchase excess cover either with us at checkout or with another provider of campervan excess cover. The expensive option is to pay the local rate offered by the Italian campervan rental company. They see it as away to make extra profit at your expense. See image below for the option that you will be presented with to buy campervan damage excess cover at the checkout stage.

Should I book campervan hire Italy early ?
Unlike car rentals, campervan suppliers have much smaller fleets. Campervans are expensive, so the RV rental company will aim to sell out rather than have unrented campervans sitting in the camper parking lot.
Booking early will give you the greatest choice of campervans. Rates are based on demand and as campervan rentals begin to sell out the rate will only increase.
So booking early will ensure that you get the camper you need, but at the best possible price.
Campervan Hire Italy Safe Driving Tips
The road system in the north is extremely well developed, while the south falls behind in quality, but is still great for driving. Most major motorways are toll roads. Petrol stations are easy to locate.
Urban roads: 50kph
Provincial highways: 90kph
National roads and motorways: 110-130kph
0.5 per cent, with hefty fines which need to be paid on the spot for violators of the law.
Roads are highly patrolled, so be aware of your speed. Motorways and national roads are in excellent condition, but be cautious of local drivers at unmarked intersections. Dipped headlights are mandatory if driving in poor visibility, driving on motorways divided highways, and rural roads.
Toll’s are more expensive than other European countries. You may avoid Tolls and keep to state or regional roads, which are more scenic and more suitable if driving at low speeds. The Toll rates are based on distance and the size of your camper, the toll can be paid in cash or credit card.
Italian Weather Overview and Map
Italy has a variable climate thanks to its north-south orientation and largely mountainous terrain. Although it is situated in a temperate zone, it is anything but temperate, with the Alps having extremely harsh winters while at the same time protecting northern cities, such as Milan, from the extreme weather. Cities like Genoa in the Liguria region have a mild climate, while the cities in the south, like Naples, have a Mediterranean climate and are warm all year round. Sicily and Sardinia also have a Mediterranean climate, and are generally warm all year, so when it is snowing and cool in Venice, it is wet and warm in Palermo. Overall, the most pleasant weather is in the spring and the summer.
