We welcome travelers from over 35 countries – from expert campers to first-timers, from students to young families to baby-boomers. That’s why we have a flexible, easy-to-understand rate structure that can cater to all levels, capabilities & preferences. We pride ourselves on being transparent about what goes into our rates.
At Escape, our campervans start with a daily rate that includes everything you need to get things kicked off. Then, depending on what you’re looking for, your experience, and comfort levels, we have all sorts of packages and extras that cater to your needs. PLUS, the best part? Every hire will receive top quality service (avg. 4.8/5 customer rating) and exclusive local tips & drive recommendations.
Look out for hidden costs
As you do your research, make sure you look carefully at exactly what is included in the daily rate and what is not. It is best if you can look at your options apples-to-apples.
Over the years, we have developed user-friendly hire terms, uncomplicated rates, and flexible insurance options with transparent costs.
