Escape is typically one of the first companies to fill up. Even in the low season, our vehicles are in high demand. It is advisable to book your van prior to booking airline tickets. For the high season months (March 15 – Oct 15), it is advisable to book a few months ahead and in the low season at least a couple of weeks. If you are not that organized, contact us anyway as things can always change at the last minute and you could get lucky!
Because of our flexible cancellation policy, it is advisable to book as early as possible to ensure availability and lock in the lowest rates.
You may use our website or call our reservations department at 877-270-8267 opt 1 (US) or +1 (310) 672-9909 opt 1 (international) to get a quote or a booking request. There is a link inside the quote that says “Click here to turn your quote into a booking request.” The link is valid for 5 days. Once you submit your booking request, our reservations team will get back to you within 24 hours as to whether or not it has been approved. Your booking is not confirmed until our reservations team has approved it. Do not book any flights or campgrounds until your request has been confirmed.
Once it has been approved, Escape will charge a $200 USD deposit to reserve your campervan. The balance is not payable until you collect your campervan (many companies require full payment 4 weeks prior to travel). Read our full Rental Requirements for more information on booking a campervan.

Note that miles packages must be chosen at pick up and cannot be amended once you’ve left the depot.
As campervans are coming in and out of our depots from all over the country every day, it is extremely difficult for us to guarantee a certain van design prior to pick up–especially during the busy summer season. While we cannot reserve certain van designs in advance, you are welcome to mention which style of artwork you prefer when you book, and you can choose from the vans that have been cleaned, serviced, and are ready to go on the lot at pick up.
All artwork is happy, creative and friendly. We do not have political, aggressive, or offensive designs. We will do everything we can to get you in a van you love!
There is no additional cost for up to 4 drivers. All drivers MUST be physically present with a valid physical driver’s license (not an electronic copy/print out) at the time of pick up.
