Rio, our stunning VW T2 is a seasoned traveller. This retro camper for rent in Portugal actually originates in Sao Paulo, Brazil. We brought her here like many of our other old school Volkswagen busses to offer her a new purpose.

She is a favourite of families, surfers, honeymooners and a perfect choice for slow and winding adventures. Portugal is home to some of the most beautiful coastal drives in Europe. So, we see no reason to be in a rush.

This retro van is a great example of how new can blend with the best of vintage style. Under the hood, the components such as the motor and brakes are all new, which makes her very reliable and safe to drive. But on the outside, Rio is all retro style and very photogenic. So you better prepare to see a crowd of people gather around her when you return from the beach.

Like the others, this one comes with everything you need for an amazing beach holiday. Suitable for sunny days in the Algarve, Rio is a pleasure to cruise around in. It also features a good sound system, because good speakers are a major ingredient of any epic road trip. Plus, not everyone is meant to be a karaoke star. Thank us later.

Also, note that just like the rest of our retro campers for hire in Portugal, Rio is only available in Faro. Do you have any questions about this amazing VW camper bus? Our knowledgeable team is here to help.
