OUR VANS, CONVERSION KITS AND ROOFTOP TENTS
CAMPER VAN RENTAL
Alone, in couple or with family, chose the van you want to travel with for this unforgettable road-trip: La Gabvan, Tiguidou, Vananas, La Mamie de Gaspésie, La Vanturière, Yvan Durêve, Bob, L’Ami d’Abitibi, Le Tonton des Cantons, La Shawinivan, le Pépé du Saguenay, La Van Horne, Nestor d’la Côte Nord et Mathilde des Laurentides. A Dodge Grand Caravan isn’t a camping car, it’s much more minimalist and compact. This camper van equipped in a very singular way, offers a living space during the day and a very confortable bed by night. With the kitchen in the back, you can travel, in a total self-sufficient way for a few days or weeks through Canada or the USA. So, ready to rent a camper van with us?

We suggest you take 2 minutes to read our FAQ section. You should find many answers to your questions here. 🙂
If you still have any interrogations, don’t hesitate to ask them using the contact form right above.
After travelling to and within several countries, Gab felt in love with the diverse countryside of Québec and decided to settle down here in 2012. In 2017, the project begins to mature. And finally Gab created this van rental company in Montreal.
You can now rent a camper van at an affordable price from Montreal. We consider that road trips and adventures have to be accessible, and we do our best everyday to make sure you get to enjoy it to its fullest extent!
Providing the opportunity to discover Quebec in a simple, economical and authentic way is our core preoccupation. But the most important thing for us is that you’re having fun along the way. So, ready for a win – win adventure?
Here’s how easy it is to book a camper van with us. Contact us via the online form and we will answer you within 24 hours. In order to better understand your expectations, do not hesitate to give us as much information and details as possible about your trip.
After that, everything happens online, and you just need a copy of your driver’s licence and passport (if you don’t have a Canadian licence), as well as a credit card (Visa, MasterCard or American Express).
Anyone over 21 can book with us, provided they have a valid license. (Small) fees for young drivers between 21 and 24 years old will apply. Contact us for details.
When taking charge of the vehicle, the main driver shall present:
– A valid piece of identification (passport for non-Canadians)
– Valid Driver’s Licence
We are the only one to offer the addition of an extra driver for free (for real !). They just need to complete the conditions mentioned above.
Yes, you can travel to the United States and Canada without a problem, except in the state & territories of Alaska, Nunavut, Northwest Territories and Yukon. We strongly advice you to take the premium insurance if you plan on traveling in the most foreign part of Canada or in the States.
A $10 fee per day applies in order to travel to the United States. Please advise us before booking if you plan to travel to the USA.
