Our more modern t4 campervans can travel anywhere in Portugal. We can also collect in Lisbon. Contact us for some amazing deals.
Our T2 Kombi campervans are classic vans. They are up to 41 years old and whilst being impeccably maintained we cannot forsee every problem that may arise. Portugal does not have a reliable efficient road side rescue service equipped with parts to resolve any problem. We, at Siesta Campers are your breakdown assistance. We have a team of professional VW aircooled mechanics with years of experience, available 24hrs a day. We stock all parts and are on call to speedily resolve any problems.
We normally resolve any problems within a few hours depending on where you are . If the van is not repairable at the side of the road we will either provide you with a replacement van or help you find suitable alternative overnight accommodation whilst we work through the night to get your camper rolling again. Keeping you within the Algarve region means that we will be with you within hours so that you do not waste your precious holiday waiting by the roadside.
These campers were made in the 70's when life trundled along at a slower pace. We believe a holiday in a classic VW allows you to experience life at a more relaxed pace. Driving up to Porto and back in a week would not be a very comfortable, leisurely or chilled holiday. These vans are not designed for cruising 1000's of kilometres on motorways at top speeds, particularly in the summer months in temperatures of 40 + . This kind of holiday better suits a modern car.
We believe a siesta camper gives you the rare opportunity to take a break from our increasingly fast daily lives..
Included in the rental price is a basic 3rd party insurance which covers you for any damage you may cause accidently to another party . You would however be responsible for any damage to our camper unless it was someone elses fault and you had taken their insurance details.
We charge according to the extent of the damage, up to a maximum of 2000 euros. This is normal procedure with most hire car companies. However, unlike most big hire car companies, we are very reasonable about costing up any damage as we do all of our own bodywork in our workshops. We are not worried about scratches to the vans and only charge you for dents where we have to fill and paint.
You are also responsible for any damage to the under carriage of the camper, caused by driving on a non tarmac road.
Super Collision Damage WaiverYour responsibility for any damage can be reduced to zero if you take out the extra insurance (Super collision damage waiver) option of an additional 30 euros a day.Minimum payment 210 euros. This means you pay nothing for any scrapes/dents or major damage.
Collision Damage WaiverThere is a mid way option 2. This reduces the maximum you pay to 500 euros for any damage. This costs an extra 20 euros a day. This means you would pay for any scrapes, dents or major damage up to a maximum of 500 euros .
Free collection from Faro airport. We wait in arrivals with a sign with your name on it.
