When you hire a campervan in Amsterdam, you not only get to explore the city, buying tulips and eating stroopwaffels along the way, but you also have the whole of the Netherlands with its beautiful countryside and beaches to explore. It’s the perfect place to bring a bike along for the trip! Read on for our tips on how to get the best start to your trip, including great places to stock up on food and where to fill up your water tanks when you set off on your journey.
When you hire a campervan in Amsterdam you can be on the road right away, trusting that your roadsurfer home on wheels is fully stocked. Your campervan comes with an awning, camping table and two chairs to enjoy the space outside of your vehicle. The kitchen box allows you to save money on eating out: you’ve got all the pots, pans, and utensils to cook up your own meals. There’s even a corkscrew and bottle opener, and a cafetière plus mugs for your morning coffee or tea, although you’ll want to bring dish towels, sponges, and eco-friendly dish soap. When you rent a small motorhome from Amsterdam you will need to bring your own bedding, or you can hire what you need from the station. Full details of what’s included and our suggestions on what to bring along to your Amsterdam campervan holiday can be found in the equipment list.
Spring and late summer are beautiful in the Netherlands, making the best months to hire a campervan in Amsterdam April, May and September. You’ll also find the Tulip Festival and National Restaurant Week in April, while September hosts the city’s Fringe Festival. In the summer months, the hours of sunshine increase, but so do the crowds. In November, January and February, you’ll find fewer tourists and great prices, perfect for those on a budget.
You’ll need to fill up the freshwater tank at the beginning of your trip, and empty your grey water at the end. This can be done at a campsite, but if you need a dedicated area, Amsterdam has one of the only motorhome services in the Netherlands where you can do both of these tasks.
Make sure to return your campervan rental with a full tank of diesel and refill the AdBlue. The nearest petrol station to our Amsterdam location is:
