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 one of our newer VW T5 campervans .We believe our classic vans gives you the rare opportunity to take a break from our increasingly fast daily lives..
We recommend you take time to read our terms and conditions.
