A little bit afraid in the beginning

, since it was my first time renting something like this.. but it was an amazing experience. First people were very nice and helpful, explain everything and offer to help in all our needs, then driving and living in the van for some day was an astonishing experience, all commodities are in the van, not for one moment we were lacking comfort. They are extremely well equipped and loads of fun to drive anywhere. strongly advise to try.

What a great company! They are all so friendly and helpful

it really made our holiday get off to a good start! The vans themselves are beautiful and vibrant with everything you need in them for an amazing time away. The sense of freedom we got just driving through the amazing countryside was just fantastic! I've been away on a few trips like this before, but this experience was unique. I would totally recommend it to anyone looking to just get away for a bit, experience a bit of wonder (as well as the rich cultural history of Portugal, we had some pretty amazing nights!) and have the holiday of a lifetime without the extreme prices of more commercial and uncaring package companies. They felt like a real 'family' business (I'm not sure if they were) but they looked after us the whole time and answered all the questions we had. Thank you so much!

The guys behind The Getaway Van designed the Vans perfectly

just rent it and make the trip of your life time. We enjoyed the time in Portugal very much - thanks !

Amazing , far better than i thought it would be.

I took a van in Winter and went for a 4 day trip to sintra and Guincho with the lady and the baby, and it was GREAT . Strongly recommend it

“This holiday and campervan exceeded all expectations.”

  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).

“A different and very good experience”

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.
