How to rent a campervan in Gran Canaria

Renting a campervan in Gran Canaria is easy, thanks to platforms like Yescapa.

We used the app Yescapa a few days ago and it was great. We found a really nice campervan there for a good price.

Another important consideration when renting a campervan is the rental agreement. Be sure to read the agreement carefully and ensure that you have all the necessary insurance coverage before hitting the road.

Where to stay: Park4Night

One of the best things about renting a campervan in Gran Canaria is the freedom to explore the island at your own pace. However, it’s still important to plan your itinerary and find a place to stay each night. Park4Night is an app that helps you find and book campgrounds and parking spots throughout the island. You can also read user reviews and ratings to ensure you’re finding the best options for your needs.

What to consider

When renting a campervan, consider the size and amenities that you will need for your trip. If you plan to spend a lot of time working remotely, look for a van with a comfortable living area and a reliable internet connection. Additionally, think about the type of trip you want to have, and the areas of the island you want to explore, and choose the right type of vehicle accordingly.

Camping permits

Camping permits are required in some areas of Gran Canaria, and it’s important to be aware of the laws and regulations before you hit the road. Many campgrounds and parking spots on the island require a permit, which can typically be obtained from the local town hall or tourist office. Some areas may also have specific regulations regarding the length of stay, noise levels, and other issues. To avoid any issues it is recommended to check the local laws and regulations and to obtain the necessary permits before your trip. The apps like Park4Night also can be helpful by providing information about the camping permits and regulations of the different spots. It is always better to be well informed and follow the local laws to ensure that you have a safe and enjoyable trip.

I saw some people camping overnight at Playa de Veneguera (on the west coast). Very remote spot, nice area. But be aware, it’s a 10km shitty gravel road to get there.
