No, you don't - a campervan can be driven with a standard full car licence. However each person who wishes to drive a campervan needs to bring their own valid original licence. If the licence is not in English it will have to have an English translation if you are visiting a non English speaking country. It is advisable to have an international driving licence. These are issued in the country of residence.

Third Party Insurance is standard on all campervans and motorhomes rented to tour Belgium with cover up to 50 million Euros.

Rates do vary from rental company to rental company.
This is an independent policy provided by Questor Insurance that covers the insurance excess on rental vehicles.
You will still need to leave your credit card to cover the excess and you will still have to pay for any damage up to that level of cover. So, if you the insurance excess is €600.00 and the damage caused to the camper is €1200.00 you will only have to pay €600.00.

Self cater for food. Have everybody's favourites on board.
Bottles and food can be warmed at any time anywhere.
Sleeping. Naps can be taken at any time anywhere.

If you drive an automatic car we suggest that you rent an automatic campervan or motorhome.
These campervans and motorhomes are larger than a standard car but they are as easy to drive. Remember that you are driving a longer and wider vehicle so take extra care, reduce your speed and use the wing mirrors and reversing cameras.
Get help when reversing and parking in smaller spaces.
If you have rented a motorhome with a bed over the cab, please be aware of the overhang on the passenger's side and make allowances when driving close to hedges, walls and signs.
You will be supplied with a cable that will connect the electrics of the campervan or motorhome to the mains supply. This will recharge the onboard batteries but also provides sufficient power to enable microwave use.
Where Do I Stay the Night and What Do I do?
A Campervan has many onboard facilities that enable you to have a home from home experience while on the road.
Gas bottles provide fuel for cooking, water heating and running the fridge. Keep these topped up. When you stop, turn the gas on. You will be shown how to do this when you collect your camper. Don't forget to turn it off when you leave the campsite.
If you have a hook up, connect your camper to the mains supply.
You will have heating and lighting and cooking facilities where ever you are in your campervan. If you travel every couple of days the onboard batteries will recharge as you drive so enabling your lights to work and other small electical items.
Keep your fresh water topped up from public taps, campsite taps and water supplies at garages. If you have enough water and gas on board you can have long showers, wash up for hours and make lots of cups of tea.
Brown water is the water from the sink and shower. This water is kept in the brown water tanks on board and can be emptied into any mains drain.
Emptying the toilet must be done at a dump station. The casettes from the toilet are removed from the exterior of the campervan or motorhome. The blue fluid that is added at the start of the hire and you top up after every time it is emptied break down any solids. Hose out the casette and replace the blue fluid regularly to keep odours to a minimum while travelling.
