Begin your campervan holiday in Lisbon

Undoubtedly one of the most alluring capitals in Europe, the City of Light, as Lisbon is known, overwhelms with its charm, bustle and beauty. Those wondering what to do in Lisbon are often spoiled with choice, and yet, just a short drive away, there are so many more wonders waiting to be discovered. Our Campervan hire Lisbon location is just minutes away from LIS airport to ensure a smooth arrival...

The city of hills

There’s a reason everyone is talking about Lisbon. Some highlight its location, sprawling over seven hills and down to the shores of the mighty Tagus and the Atlantic beyond. Some boast about its historical credentials, as a former powerhouse of Europe and birthplace to the 'Age of Discoveries' and gateway to the New World. Others prefer its cultural and artistic charm, where castles rub shoulders with futuristic architectural icons and museums overlap with theatres and concert venues. If you're still wondering what to do in Lisbon, check out the robust food scene, its kindhearted people, colourful shops, endless bridges, vibrant markets, lush parks, and of course, Fado.

Shaped by its river

Whatever the reason, Lisbon can’t help but win you over. Whether you're riding aboard the iconic yellow tram surprised by sudden glimpses of the Tagus; on a scooter, zigzagging along the broad walkways of the riverfront; or bobbing above the modernity of Parque da Nações in a cable car, Lisbon is a treat for the senses. Some of these treasures are best explored on foot. For the others, including the many found further afield such as Sintra and the numerous beaches, let's just say you'll be very glad you parked your campervan nearby.

You can’t miss

Belém

When you're ready to take your road trip further afield, hop in your campervan and drive just west of the centre. Belém indulges with its UNESCO status buildings and monuments and its modern museums. It’s also home to the Pastel de Belém, probably the finest example of the local custard tart. These are pretty filling, so if you feel a sudden urge to take a nap, the bed inside your campervan folds down easily. We're big fans of a good midday nap.

Lx Factory

Former factory buildings transformed into quirky shops, restaurants, cafés, bars – this is city regeneration at its coolest. Motorhome hire Lisbon offers a chance to visit the open-air market which fill the streets with stalls selling local colour. You should not miss a chance to check this place out, but be prepared, it's popular and does get busy. It's probably best you park your motorhome a few streets away from the entrance for a smooth exit when you're ready to hit the road.

We recommend

Mercado da Ribeira

Market turned into a multi-restaurant food court, where kiosks offer gourmet, vegan, shellfish… you name it! Great way to experience Lisbon’s famed food scene, condensed into a few hundred square metres. This local gem is a great alternative to the very popular Time Out Market Lisbon. Whether you choose to visit one, or both, you'll be pleased to discover that the charm of Lisbon extends beyond the usual city centre. Motorhome hire Lisbon is ideal for exploring the outskirts of the city and beyond.

Lisbon is well suited for campervan hire and year-round camping due to a pleasant climate and an average of more than 300+ sunny days per year.

During the summer months of July and August, expect temperatures of around 28°C to 36°C. When it's this hot you’ll want to be near the coastline where you will find cooler breezes and fresher nights.

We at Siesta prefer off-season Lisbon campervan hire from October to June to fully enjoy uncrowded beaches, campsites and restaurants. The weather is pleasant while less traffic and open parking spaces right by the beach are a great bonus too.

During the slower months of December through March, you’ll remain comfortable as all of our Atlantic campervans and motorhomes are temperature insulated and come with auxiliary night heaters.

Rent a campervan in Lisbon from €50 per night during the low season to €175 per night during the summertime. The price of Lisbon motorhome rental is a bit higher, ranging between €90 to €225. Factors which affect the price of campervan or motorhome rental in Lisbon include vehicle type, seasonality, rental duration, extras, upgrades and insurance cost.

According to our internal data, the average distance travelled per trip in our campervan rentals in June 2022 was 809 km. This distance could easily be a trip from Lisbon to the Algarve, the southernmost region of Portugal, with return to Lisbon. This trip would consume approximately 1 full tank of fuel, costing €120 to fill up (this estimate was made on July 8, 2022). Take a look at this calculator that provides fuel prices, in real time, based on the kms you will travel.

It is impossible to deny that recently fuel has had a significant increase. Fortunately, our campervans are Euro 6 vans, one of the most economical ranges on the market today, their diesel consumption is approximately 7L per 100 km.

Who doesn't like to eat!? Whether you like to stay at home or eat out, renting a campervan can provide benefits you might not expect, plus save you a lot!

Unlike most hotels, all of our campervans are fully equipped with everything you need to cook delicious meals wherever you are. This allows for greater flexibility and also gives you excellent value for money compared to traditional options.

There is nothing better than exploring Portugal by campervan and having the pleasure of enjoying a meal in an unforgettable place, while watching the stars. Can you imagine waking up to the sound of the waves and the feeling of the desert beaches of the west coast while enjoying a nice warm coffee and having local quality products? Buying local will certainly be more cost-effective than dining out.

If you prefer to try a local restaurant, you can expect to pay around €1-€2 for a coffee on the beach. A typical Portuguese lunch in the villages usually costs around €10-€15 per person, including wine!

Restaurants by the sea can be more expensive. Fresh fish caught the same day, for example in Arrifana, would cost €10€-€20, not including drinks and desserts.

Our Lisbon campervan hire location features our modern campervans and motorhomes. The vans vary in size, amenities, and style. Some are better suited for solo travellers and couples while others are ideal for groups and families.

Road conditions around Lisbon are generally good, but if you choose motorhome or RV rental in Portugal, be careful when driving through narrow Lisbon streets. Certain areas are inaccessible for wider vehicles. Rainy days are rare during the summer months, but when they arrive and water combines with a dusty layer on the surface, road conditions can become quite slippery.

  • 120km/h on national motorways

Lisbon is a safe and peaceful city. In the 15 years of running Siesta Campers we have had hardly any break-ins and we’ve had thousands of clients. We always recommend leaving your valuables out of sight especially when parked in Lisbon, or towns and beaches.
