You will receive a link to your customer account together with your booking confirmation. There, you can view details of your booking, such as the vehicle model, pick-up and drop-off times, and more. Additionally, you can directly adjust the following topics and more.

Our station locations can vary significantly. Some are centrally located, while others are a bit more on the outskirts. Please check the detail pages of our stations to see the specific location of the station where you have booked your camper. Additionally, you will find tips on how to get there and information about on-site parking options on the individual station pages.

Unfortunately, our locations do not offer secure parking facilities, and parking spaces are often limited or unavailable. However, there might be potential to find parking in nearby residential or commercial areas. For the best option, leave the car at home and use public transportation, or take a taxi to our station is recommended.

Our Carefree Packages cover you in the event of an accident or damage. With the “Basic” package, you already have basic coverage with comprehensive and breakdown insurance included. By upgrading to an “Advanced” or “Complete” package, you can insure yourself against additional types of damage and at the same time reduce your deductible, i.e. the costs you have to pay yourself in the event of damage.

Further details on prices and benefits can be found on our Rates page.

For all UK registered renters, a driver license check is compulsory at the time of pick-up at one of our UK stations in order to be fully covered by our insurance package.

If you are registered in the UK and have more than 6 points on your driving license and/or with specific past driving convictions you will not be able to drive our vehicles.

For this purpose, if you are renting in the UK you will need to provide the following:

  • Driving license number
    Address information (As displayed on Driver’s license)
    National Insurance ID
    You can enter the required information on the website GOV.UKin advance and generate a check code and show it at the time of pick-up at the station.

Drivers with a driver’s license from other European countries picking up our vehicles in any UK station are not subject to the driver license check.

  • You can find the telephone number of the mobility service provider responsible for your vehicle in your customer account. You will find your personal link to the customer account in the e-mail with your booking confirmation/rental contract. Please note: The mobility service provider will provide assistance in German or English and only in relation to the vehicle’s driving restrictions. If you have questions about the camping functions, you can find help in the Help Centre, because unfortunately the mobility service provider cannot help here!
  • Document your breakdown as best you can and note down the incident number of the mobility service provider. Send us everything by e-mail to assistance@roadsurfer.com.

Have you had an accident or suffered damage on the road, but your camper is running perfectly? Then please proceed as follows:

  • Take photos of the damage and the surroundings and send an e-mail with a damage report to assistance@roadsurfer.com .
  • In case of an accident, please also fill out the international accident report (in the glove compartment) and send it to the email address above.
  • Inform the police on site (obligatory, otherwise insurance will not pay!)
