Rent the best campervans and motorhomes in Spain
Spain offers a variety of options, including the choice of two cosmopolitan and very different cities such as Madrid and Barcelona, with certain elements that are repeated throughout its geography. One of them is good gastronomy. Spain has a wide range of star products, depending on where you go. Ham and Iberian sausages are unmatched anywhere in the world in Extremadura, the best seafood in Galicia, the classic pintxos of the Basque Country, and paella, perhaps the most international element of Spanish gastronomy, on the Mediterranean coast of Valencia. Another characteristic that is found all over the country is the number of festivals and cultural events that take place throughout the year, but especially in the summer between June and September. Visitors in a motorhome rental in Spain can choose between a leading electronic music festival such as Sónar, a traditional festival like La Tomatina de Buñol in Valencia, and thousands of other fiestas that take place all over the country.
As a general rule, it should be said that wild camping in your camper rental Spain is not allowed as a whole. However, because there are always exceptions to the rule, there are specific cases where it does exist. For example, the community of Aragon allows it in areas above 1,500 meters of altitude, like the Pyrenees. Then, there is also an exemption to the rule that never fails, ask the locals, they will know the places where you can spend the night without disturbing others or being disturbed.
Spanish roads and highways are of considerable quality, and only when you try to get into more remote areas, you may encounter worse conditions. Motorhome and camper hire in Spain pay the same as a standard car at most Spanish tolls. Also, the toll costs can be avoided by driving on toll-free roads which, although slower, are usually much nicer and more scenic. The size of the roads and the driving system (always on the right) does not vary much from the rest of Southern European countries.
