Yes, every camper comes with basic insurance with a self-risk of 10.000 NOK. CDW (Collision damage waiver) is mandatory in Norway and it covers damage to the driver, passengers, other people’s vehicles and other people’s property.
You can purchase additional insurance, that will lower your self-risk. You can choose from 2 additional packages:

Full insurance (125 NOK/day) – This coverage option provides protection for both damages to the vehicle (CDW) and damages to a third party. This option also comes with free 24/7 roadside assistance. Your liability is a max of 5.000 NOK per incident.
Peace of mind (375 NOK/day) – In addition to full coverage, you get free 24/7 road assistance and free change of dates up to 24 hours before check-in (price per day: a.) lower price – non-refundable; b.) higher price – the difference must be paid). Your liability is a max of 1500 NOK per incident.

- Damage resulting from driving in places where vehicle traffic is banned, such as paths, tracks, banks of snow, ice, unbridged rivers or streams, beaches.
We will meet you personally for the pick-up and drop-off. Therefore it’s crucial to know when and where exactly you are coming.
- Sandefjord city -usually train station or city centre
- TRF Oslo Torp airport (not Gardemoen – OSL) – choose only if flying there. We’ll meet you by the car rental offices.
- Oslo city – possible for a fee of 2000 NOK (excl. VAT) one way. The meeting location is Radisson Blu Plaza Hotel by central station (Oslo S).
Time: Pick-up time starts at 14:00 and drop-off time is at the latest 11:00. If you have a specific request, let us know so we can see if we can arrange it.
Early pick-up or late drop-off: All our guests have the right to pick up the car from 14:00 and drop it off at the latest at 11:00. After securing this for others, we can agree on other time spots for you. Because of our unlimited mileage policy, an extra fee of 500 NOK applies.
You can combine only locations which are stated on our website. These are: Sandefjord, Torp Airport and Oslo city.
For example: you can pick up the campervan in Sandefjord and deliver it to Oslo. Delivery fee applies.
There is no mileage limit.
We set no limits on where you can and can not drive. Note that our 24/7 road assistance is only valid in Norway. We can not guarantee any road assistance abroad.
Are you sure? Driving from Sandefjord/Oslo to Lofoten is like driving to Paris, except there are no highways. If you didn’t stop anywhere on the way, the journey would be 22 h or 1500 km or 3 days long one way.
We are located in the south and we focus on travelling the south of Norway. It makes no sense to rent from us to only drive to Lofoten. There are campervan rentals located up north.
When is Lofoten a good idea? Your booking is appropriately long for such a journey (around 19 days). You are exploring the whole of Norway and end up in Lofoten. Then we are jealous and want to actually join you. 🙂
All our campers are equipped with AUTO PASS electronic devices, so you have worry-free travel. You will only pay for what you use + 25% transaction fee.
The toll system is online and we have the overview of what you have passed a few days after your drop-off. You will receive a copy of course.
Why 25%? Because it’s fair to short bookings and those avoiding tolls. A flat fee would be an unnecessarily high price for someone renting for a few days. Is it fair to long rentals? Yes, then the 25% amount uses to be just as high as a flat fee our competitors charge.
Example: a week-long trip following our itinerary (2300 km) is around 1000 nok on tolls. The 25% charge is 200 nok on top.
Paddleboards, hiking poles, outdoor shower, camping furniture, bike racks, tent, voltage converter (12 V to 230 V), Wi-Fi router, GPS, awning, hammock, guitar, portable toilet, child seats, towels, Lonely Planet, itineraries…
You can choose the extras during the booking.
Is there something that you would like to add to our extras? Let us know, maybe we have it 😉
All children under 135 cm must have a specific car seat to travel by car in Norway.
Please contact us for the availability of the car child seat. We offer child seats for children weights 9-18 kg and 15-36 kg. None of them has ISOFIX. Note that it’s the driver who is responsible for the right child seat.
- Britax Multi-Tech II-BX (9-18 kg)
- Maxi Cosi Tobi (9-18 kg)
- booster (15-36 kg)
Be aware it’s not possible to turn off the airbags in Marco Polo and Mozart and therefore those campervans are not recommended to travel with children shorter than 135 cm. The VW campervans don’t have the option either, however, they do have back seats where it’s safe for children.
Message us if you have any questions about travelling with baby.
Return the campervan and extras in the same condition as you received them and pay nothing. On the opposite way, the cleaning fee is 750 NOK.
Note that if you purchased the cleaning fee and you return the car in extremely bad condition, we might charge you extra for professional cleaning. It’s your responsibility to do the dishes and get rid of odours and extreme grease.
*The cleaning fee is not refundable.
You can bring your pet partner with you. Remember, our campervans are compact-sized, so should be your pet. Please discuss this with us before booking.
Remember to deliver the campervan cleaned.
Yes! If you come to pick up a campervan in Sandefjord by car, you can leave it with us, on our private property.
Of course! We offer two itineraries that will lead you through the best places in Norway. You can add the itinerary to your booking in the 3rd step.
- Our campervans are compact, so should be your luggage. Hard suitcases are something that will limit your living space for the whole trip. If your luggage is big, there is nowhere where it will fit perfectly. Backpacks are highly recommended.
- Distances in Norway are different than in the USA or Germany. In Norway, 150 km is a 4-hour journey. Don’t plan big, better focus on smaller areas.
During your trip
Despite throughout explanation of how parking works, we receive dozens of unpaid parking tickets. Please take your time and find out how the parking works. If the parking is paid, you must always pay for it! Even though you don’t get a physical ticket, cameras and other electronic devices are scanning the car in the parking lot.
The fine for unpaid parking is usually 660 NOK. Should you get one, we charge you the fine plus a 25% transaction fee.
In the event of car engine failure, call the campervan rental: +47 463 708 64
In Norway, you can camp wherever you want to. Check out more info about the right to roam free.
There are over 1000 camping grounds in Norway but in general, you can park your camper anywhere alongside a public road in uncultivated areas for one night – as long as it’s not expressly forbidden – look for road signs. The area you park in must be safely out of reach of passing motorists and not a hindrance for others. You can also download the “park4free” app which is very useful.
Many of the camping grounds will let you take shower for a small charge. Also, some petrol stations have showers. Public swimming pools with saunas are never a bad choice. Otherwise, a beautiful crystal clear lake is never too far.
The water tank can be refilled at most gas stations. There are usually water hoses and the water is drinkable. There are also many public toilets with water refills usually by beaches, tourist areas, camping spots or National Tourist Routes.
All our campers run on DIESEL.
Never use avgiftsfri diesel which is for trucks and tractors. The use of it is even illegal.
Yes! There is a cigarette socket for plugging your USB cables or our voltage converter (find in extras) while driving. In the sleeping area, there are several USB sockets.
For faster charging and laptop charging you can rent a voltage converter
You can, but you have to always agree on this beforehand. Insurance might be limited or not valid at all. Don’t take unnecessary risk.
