Winter Travel Information

Q. Are your rental stations open the whole year round
Our stations in Helsinki, Rovaniemi, Stockholm and Oslo are open all year round.
Reykjavik rental station is open June 1st - September 30th.

Q. Do you have some special agreements for the winter rentals
Yes, we do. The use of motorhome in winter time takes a little bit more effort than in summer time, and therefore we have created Winter rules which we go carefully through with the customer before starting the tour. The customer will also have a copy of the rules to have with and check that everything is correct during the trip.

Q. During which period do you include winter tires on your rentals
The winter tires are mandatory in Scandinavia during 01.12 - 28.2 and during this period all our rental vehicles have winter tires.
The customer can have winter tires also beside this period but then we charge €60 to change the tires plus €5 /each rental day for the use of the tires.

Q. I'm a little bit conserned to be cold if I rent a motorhome during the winter time. Can you assure that the motorhome stays warm also when the temperature goes below zero
Our vehicles are specially planned for Nordic conditions and therefore there is an extra heating possiblity as a standard equipment. Consequently, the motorhome is suitable also for the cold winter weather and you will stay warm during your winter holiday.

Q. Is it possible to pick up a motorhome in Helsinki to visit Rovaniemi and go back to Helsinki in winter? Are there any campgrounds which are open between these two places during winter
The roads in Scandinavia are maintained during the winter and usually drivable. We suggest you reserve a bit more time to travel during winter than summer. Read more about during which time our vehicles have winter tires above. There are caravan areas near the ski resorts where you can have electricity and water. Most of the campgrounds though are open only during summer season.

Q. Do you have any winterized motorhomes which would allow to use the water system (shower etc.) in winter ? And where can I take water and charge electricity
There are restictions when using the water systerm during the cold winter months. In vehicles where the water system is heated it is the clients responsibility to take care of the proper heating of the vehicle at all times if water is held in the system. You can have water and electricity either at the caravan areas at ski resorts or at gas stations.

Q. Does the motorhome have electricity or gas heating or both ? Which kind of heating will be used when the motorhome is standing and which kind when it is on the move
Our vehicles have both electricity and gas heating. You can use electricity heating when you are connected to electricity (for example at a camping site).
Gas heating is recommended to be used only when being stationary.

Q. What are the prices for winter rentals
You can find links to the rental prices at the top of this page.

Children travelling in Motorhomes

LEGAL NOTICE AFFECTING LARGE CATEGORY

Legal notice concerning European Union Law

11.3.2008
Renewed road traffic and vehicle regulations on children travelling in motorhomes and on temporarily exceeding number of passengers marked on the registration certificate.

1. Temporary excess of passenger count that is marked on registration certificate.
Together with the amendment of road traffic act mentioned above, also the regulation on vehicle usage on roads was amended (1257/92, 6th chapter section 38). After the amendment, unambiguously the number of seated and standing passengers in a vehicle must not exceed the maximum passenger count marked on the registration certificate. Drivers and passengers must use designated seating and standing places that fulfill the requirements stated in the act.


This law is affecting our Large category. Starting immediately, only 5 passengers can simultaneously travel in these categories even though there are more beds in these vehicle types.

2. Traveling with Children in a motorhome
A child whose height is less than 135 cm has to be in a type approved safety device when travelling. However, children under 3 years have to be travelling always in a baby seat, meaning that if a baby seat cannot be installed in to the vehicle children under 3 years cannot travel in the vehicle.

All children whose height is under 135 cm must be seated in a child seat or a booster seat when travelling in a motorhome.
