Tips for traveling by motorhome or van to the Netherlands

Regulations for parking and overnight in the Netherlands in a motorhome

The Netherlands is a country where you can park anywhere that is not prohibited by an ordinance or municipal regulation during the day. But at night things change. The regulations on the overnight stay of motorhomes exist and in this case in a restrictive way.

By law it is forbidden to spend the night in any vehicle outside a campsite or motorhome area throughout the Netherlands.

In addition, you will see that being a very capitalist and privatized country, there are no free areas.

To camp

Free camping is prohibited, only in campsites and motorhome areas you can camp. In the latter, not all of them, since there are some public ones, which, although they are paid, do not allow camping either.

Getting around the Netherlands: roads and bicycles

Netherlands Roads

In Holland the roads they are mostly free, although there are no excellent highways like the toll roads in France and Spain.

Our experience: route and travel expenses in the Netherlands by motorhome

Summary of our trip to the Netherlands, Holland by motorhome

10 days in early August that we did after visiting 15 Belgium (See route by Belgium by motorhome here).

Our trip to the Netherlands, tried to flee from the big cities, which we had already known on other occasions, which are not too attractive in the middle of the Covid pandemic or with children. For this reason, we look for a lot of nature and charming towns and rural areas, which are the ones that we show you and recommend in the 10 destinations below.

Expenses of the 10-day route through the Netherlands in a motorhome

In total, this trip that we have made in a motorhome for 10 days in the Netherlands has an approximate cost of 2.0€ 00 uros, cost for all 4 that we are in the family.

First, 900 euros is the cost of gasoline and tolls to go and return to Barcelona and move on this route through Belgium

Then you have to add the costs of overnight areas, campsites and parking lots which in total has been € 180 always sleeping in a camping or area as required by the law of the Netherlands

Then we add the visits and tickets to the different places visited. A cost that has been 425€. Then spending on restaurants and hotels for € 300. 

Also, remember that we go in our motorhome. Now, if you do not have a motorhome and you want to rent one, add about € 50-100 per day if you rent it in France or € 100-150 per day if you rent it in Spain approximately and that in the middle season.

Consequently, we always recommend to friends to rent a motorhome or van through Yescapa, a platform like air b and b, for rent between individuals with insurance through. It is cheaper and we have very good experiences with friends who have done it.

Finally, we recommend you rent a motorhome or camper in Yescapa from this link where Yescapa offers you the best offer: motorhome rental with Yescapa
