Why is renting a campervan the best option for your road-trip in Norway?

If you read this, there is a big possibility you are not a fan of organised trips, where a guide almost holds your hand and takes you to the planned places, with the pre-booked hotels, dinners and so on. Whether you want to save money or experience something adventurous, hiring a campervan gives you a chance to roam free, to organise the trip as you go and… keep reading :)


1. Budget-friendly

At first, it might seem that driving a home on wheels is quite expensive. Doing a little research and looking closer will convince you about the exact opposite! It's an affordable and effective way of travel. 

The advantage of having a car, accommodation and possibility to cook - all in one, becomes clear just at the moment of your arrival to Norway. In such an expensive country it is very hard to stay flexible at the same time. With a campervan, you don't have to plan long forward or to pre-book hotels and may stay budget-friendly. Opportunity to cook your own meal is simply one of the greatest pros brought by travelling with a van. 



2. Freedom, flexibility and no stress

As you could see over our web, we consider freedom to be the biggest advantage of travelling by campervan. 

You don't have to plan your travels long ahead

With the Norwegian climate, it's not a question. You never know three months ahead that a storm is coming to ruin your hike to Preikestolen even in the summer season. Therefore you can´t book accommodation nearby for a certain date. Do you know what we mean? With a campervan, flexibility makes its sense to the fullest. You park and sleep wherever* and whenever you like to.

Running into beautiful places behind every curve

Oops, it happened again. Driving to your destination, but look, this lake and the mountain - the whole panorama looks amazing! Thoughts about having a romantic cabin at such a place run into your mind. Well, make this dream come true for tonight and park by your favourite spot. You don't have to hurry anywhere.


Some activities take more time than expected

Don't stress if the hike took you longer - one of the Benzini crew waits for you parked down by the road. It's not always that somebody waits for you in a hotel's reception. But we know you are on holiday, want to enjoy and not stress about check-in and out times. So take the chance and explore the freedom offered!



3. Run from a stereotype

Tired of traditional travelling with the same scheme but different views? What about stepping out from your comfort stereotype and trying out something new? While on one hand camper gives you the freedom to not to plan long ahead, on the other hand, it is necessary to ensure the basic needs. It is fun searching for the greatest spot imagined or jumping into the lake instead of hotel wellness. Whether you are a couple, best friends or anyone else, it will definitely deepen your relationship. Not only with the best experiences and memories ever, but with organizing your tiny home in common as well.


Why rent from Benzini Campers

4. All seasons rental

Because winter in Scandinavia is even more beautiful than summer and also fewer tourists come, it's absolutely worth a visit! And yes - Northern lights - how could we forget. You really want to be there during mysterious months accompanied by one hour-long sunrise and sunset that cover all-sky in pink, red and orange colours. 

Did we get you? If so, our campers are prepared for those adventurous souls to keep them warm. We took the effort to insulate all the walls and floor and installed parking diesel heater (keep it on minimum, because higher power is meant probably for Svalbard or so  - it's very strong). Some of our motorhomes dispose of transparent ceiling window, that lets you wait for the aurora inside. On rainy spring and autumn days, there are several extras to keep you active - guitar, table games, books and so on. Keep in mind, Ganesh disposes of a home cinema!



5. Compact campers

Driving huge motorhomes isn't easy even for experienced drivers. Roads in Norway rarely do not twist and therefore you beg for something smaller, but big enough to sleep in. You are in the right place - we've built mini-compact campers, easy to drive, but offering all space you need at the same time - golden mean. 


6. Extras are extras

Everything you need for a carefree trip is already in the campervan. Everyday needs such as blankets, pillows, tables, chairs, kitchenware and so on are included of course. Our extras are more or less a hobby and leisure equipment. You can rent a guitar, tripod, tent, trekking poles, hammock... Not a minute will be boring with Benzini Campers.


We believe you found enough reasons to start a home on wheels engine, whether it's ours, or you will build your own straight. Once you try this mean of travelling, you will never have enough. But we have the upper hand - we love to share our favourite places with our customers. There is nothing better than personal experience. Looking forward to planning your trip as well!
