“A different and very good experience”
Reviewed October 12, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

I had an amazing experience traveling all over Portugal with a cool van, that had almost everything we need to enjoy the trip.
Being able to park everywhere was important and in terms of fuel the van was surprisingly economic.

There's only one negative fact, the company Getaway Van announces that when you travel on the highways you pay as a car, and that's not true. After i finished the trip, i received the bill and noticed that after all i paid as a van and not as a car. So it was more expensive that what i was expecting.

Despiste this fact, i recommend everyone to try it.

Thank you for your nice review and feedback.
We are glad you had a great time in Portugal. We are sorry your expectations in terms of toll charges were not met. When we started our vans where indeed incorrectly classified as cars on motorway tolls, which is no longer the case. We have corrected our website to reflect this.

“This holiday and campervan exceeded all expectations.”
Reviewed September 2, 2015 for a stay in August 2015

Getaway Vans are wonderful. This was our first time hiring a campervan and I think we have been spoilt. Our van, named Poseidon, was beautifully kitted out and sparkling clean (important to me!), with everything we needed for our 8 days touring north Portugal. It was perfect for two of us, with a comfortable bed, small sink and outside shower (tank holds 75 litres and we only filled up twice). The small brilliantly designed portaloo tucks away in a cupboard. Free wifi in the van was brilliant in helping us negotiate town centres and find parking. The van is an adapted Ford Transit and easier to get off road than some of the huge campervans we saw. Its so easy to wild camp in north Portugal - lots of places to tuck yourselves away, and much nicer than staying in campsites, especially in August when they are pretty packed. Our eye catching design got lots of smiles wherever we went too. Getaway Vans is a new venture run by Graca and her family (van exterior designed by their son) and they take so much pride in their vans and helping their customers. (We were picked up and dropped off at Porto airport.) we plan to go back and explore more of Portugal and also go into Spain (unlike other companies their insurance covers going over the border).

“Great holiday for families”
Reviewed August 7, 2015 for a stay in May 2015

We loved the time we spent touring the north of Portugal in this campervan. Perfect mobility and freedom to stay overnight anywhere, even where other traditional caravans can´t.
Plenty of recommendations of where to go and see from the owners and their library and a full listing of places to stay overnight.
