Does my motorhome come with unlimited mileage?

The majority of campervan rental suppliers in the US do not offer unlimited miles as a standard rental inclusion.

In most cases, miles (kilometres) are capped at a daily rate, and additional fees will be incurred if you exceed the limit. Additional miles can usually also be prepurchased in packages ranging from 100 miles up to unlimited. However, any remaining miles will not be refunded when the vehicle is returned.

Check our comparison tool for details.

Where can I camp in a motorhome in New York?

As in the rest of America, free camping is only allowed in designated areas, which can include national parks, state parks, truck stops or rest stops as well as certain parking lots with permission from the store manager.

Campgrounds are widely available throughout the state, and a stay at a campsite will usually cost around $15–50 (USD).

There are sites available to suit all vehicle types, from travel trailers up to larger motorhomes

What license do I need to rent a campervan in the USA?

All drivers must have a current and full driver’s licence to hire a vehicle. Foreign licences are generally acceptable if they are in English or accompanied by an accredited English translation. Otherwise, an International Driving Permit (IDP) is required.

In addition to your driver’s licence, you will often be required to show your passport at the time of pickup.

Some companies, e.g. Road Bear, Best Time and Britz, require an IDP regardless of the language of your licence.

Can I rent a campervan in the US if I’m under 21?

Most campervan rental suppliers in the USA require the main driver to be 21 years of age or older. A full driver’s licence is required.

Some companies require the driver to be 25 or older. Our comparison tool will show you which vehicles are available for your age bracket.

Can I rent a one-way campervan in the US?

Yes, a large number of campervan rental companies allow for one-way rentals. One-way rentals are not available on all routes, and additional fees apply, depending on the pickup and drop-off location.

Our comparison tool will automatically factor rental costs between two locations and show you which vehicles are available on your preferred route.

Can I explore New York City in a motorhome?

Most RV rental suppliers restrict access to downtown New York in your rental vehicle. Some of the streets in New York are very narrow, and the heavy volume of traffic makes accidents much more likely.

It is still possible to explore New York, however, since many RV parks are located on the outskirts of the city. Public transport in New York City is very reliable, allowing you to leave your RV at the park and head into the city centre.

Some popular choices near New York City include Liberty Harbour RV Park, Beaver Pond Campground and New York City North/Newburgh KOA Holiday Park.

Note: policies vary from supplier to supplier. Always check the T&Cs for your rental.
