You’ll need a suitable insurance cover

Not only is insuring your vehicle a legal requirement, but it provides peace of mind that your investment is protected at any time. Two common insurance options are the pay-as-you-go daily insurance cover and the annual self-drive hire policies. Each have their own benefits, depending on how often you use your vehicle and the type of coverage you want in your policy. We have worked alongside leading insurer Alan Boswell to offer you a ground-breaking solution.


If you have an existing insurance that doesn't cover private hire and only want to pay as you go for the days you rent out your vehicle, then the Alan Boswell Camptoo Daily Insurance is the flexible solution for you, allowing you to comprehensively insure your vehicle for the days you rent it out. This covers your hirer during their trip anywhere in the UK or the EU. This policy will cost you £21.28 per day, which will be subtracted from your commisions. Please keep this in mind when setting the nightly rates: these should include coverage for the prices. 

Annual Self Drive Hire Insurance 

This option allows you to get your motorhome insured for hiring it out throughout the year. Unlike pay-as-you-go daily insurance, a comprehensive annual insurance policy covers your renters and provides you off-hire cover. That means you and other named drivers are insured if you want to use the vehicle without a rental contract. With the Alan Boswell Camptoo Annual Insurance, you are fully covered at prices starting at £ 1334.00 per year, including insurance taxes and roadside assistance throughout the UK + EU.

Receive the first rental requests

Your advertisement is finished, so potential renters can now see your listed vehicle. To ensure that you are visible and get plenty of requests, we’ll boost your ad for a short time.

We’ll notify you via email or SMS if someone is interested in your vehicle. When you are considering a request and you're unsure, let us know and we're more than happy to help you every step of the way.

Accept the rental request

With the rental request, the potential renters send you a personal message in which they explain why your vehicle is perfect and where they are planning to travel to. You can look at their Camptoo profile with additional information as well as their reviews. We check the renter’s identity as well as the validity of their driving licence.

If you are comfortable and feel happy with the renter, feel free to accept the request. By accepting the request, you agree to the rental terms.

Payment process and deposit

Camptoo manages the whole payment process for you. Once payment has been made, contact details are made available to both parties to arrange the pick-up. The amount will be transferred to your account the next business day after the trip has started.

The renter also has to pay a security deposit a few days before departure. The deposit is set by the owner but is usually £1.000 for motorhomes and campervans and £500 for caravans.

The adventure starts

Once the booking is paid in full (including deposit) the renter can start the journey! Camptoo provides a handy digital transfer form to document the start. All you need to do is conduct a vehicle inspection as you fill in the form and sign-off before handing over the keys!

Once the trip is over

You perform a final inspection and inform us as to whether the deposit can be returned to the renter. You are entitled to charge for extra mileage, cleaning costs, gas, and/or toll fees. Everything is simple and can be handled online. It won’t take longer than a few minutes.
