VanBreak Team

Spain, and in particular, southern Spain, is an ideal area for road trips and camping due to its large spaces, the variety of its landscapes, the diversity of nature and safety.

To date we have not had any acts of vandalism. However, it is essential, as everywhere, to respect the safety instructions: close the van when you go out and when you sleep at night, do not leave any valuable things in sight (computers, sunglasses, mobile phone, etc.) and avoid leaving the vehicle unattended in marginal areas or neighborhoods.

If the driver has a foreign licence of a country outside the EU, it is essential to obtain an international driving licence. For Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway the national licence is sufficient.

The minimum age for driving all our vehicles (campervans and motorhomes) is 25 years AND 2 years driving license. Each driver needs to have a valid driving licence (Class B) for at least 2 years.

You can travel to Portugal by subscribing to the PREMIUM insurance. For any trip outside the Iberian Peninsula (France, Italy, Morocco, etc.) please contact us: info@vanbreak.com

It is possible, in almost everywhere. 😊 You can choose a car park or a resting place (a car park near the beach, an area just under a lighthouse, in front of the ocean) or simply a camping…

  • VW California equipped van: with the height of 2 meters of all our Volkswagen vans, you can park anywhere, without problem. You can stay away from large motorhomes and find places where they cannot access. You can look for coastal paths or small spaces in forests to enjoy the tranquility to the max. Beware of private areas or prohibited parking spaces … You can also enter cities and park in underground parkings.
  • Burstner City Car compact motorhome: with a larger size, it is naturally more complicated to park within cities in a parking space for a standard vehicle or a private parking. You will have to find special parkings for motorhomes. However, with the Burstner City Car compact motorhome, they are quite easy and you can find parking spots more easily compared to a standard-size motorhome. Beware of private areas or prohibited parking spaces …

With our Park4Night friends, you do not have to look for more parking places: install the application on your mobile phone (you need a data connection) or use our GPS with the Park4Night points that you have previously integrated. You will find many options for parking spots, share the best places with the Park4Night community, find a station to empty used water and fill the tank with clean water.

For more comfort, from time to time, you can also enjoy the campsites during your road trip.

Both models will allow you to live in total autonomy. The advantage of the the campervan is that it can sneak around; in the underground parkings and all the narrowest accesses as it is less than 2 meters high and wide. It is like taking your house on four wheels. It is driven and maneuvered like a car. You can easily visit major city centres, big cities, park, but also camp in the wild nature or stop to pass the night at campsites. However, the living space is smaller (kitchen, living room) and you can benefit from an outdoor shower (cold water).

On board our compact motorhome you have an indoor bathroom (with shower and hot water + WC inside), a spacious and comfortable kitchen and a real living room for 4 people. You will gain autonomy due to a larger water reserve (100L) to get lost in the great natural spaces and isolate yourself in the middle of nature. However, its volume (length, width, height) makes it a larger vehicle than the van, which requires a certain controlling, the city centres become less accessible.

No matter what model you rent, all you need is a licence B (Driving licence), and your personal belongings, because Vanbreak will take care of the rest : fully equipped vehicles for cooking, eating, sleeping and washing, click HERE to discover the list of accessories.

Aboard your van

We do not recommend travelling with your pet for safety reasons. We suggest you get in touch with a kennel a few meters from our agency.

If you wish to travel with your dog, it is allowed but the customer will have to pay an extra 50 euros for the entire trip and he is obliged to return back the vehicle in the same state of cleanliness as he took it. 

All our vehicles have electric autonomy (to supply the lights, fridge, shower, heating …) and a water tank. Travelers can sleep wherever they want and enjoy modern and complete comfort.

Each model has two batteries. The first battery powers the motor independently, and the second one powers the living space (lights, fridge, shower, heating …).

Our VW California OCEAN and mini motorhomes models have secondary battery indicators, but don’t worry if your secondary battery is empty, just start the engine (first battery) and it will recharge. The secondary battery is also charged by hooking-up to an external power (use an adapter and extension).

If you leave your vehicle immobilized, the duration of the second battery is usually between 48h and 72h depending on your use.

As for the water tanks, our VW California OCEAN campervans have a 30L tank, VW California Beach 20L, and 100L in the Burstner City Car motorhomes. You can fill the tanks with clean water at gas stations, camping sites,  or private homes 😉



For your road trip in Spain, our vans and motorhomes have an outlet so you can plug in your laptop, for example.

Our VW California OCEAN vans and the Burstner Citycar motorhome have a 220V socket to charge your electronic devices. The Burstner City motorhome must be connected to an electricity source through an external connection outside the vehicle.

If you choose the VW California BEACH van, we offer you a 12V to 220V converter (using the cigarette lighter) that will allow you to connect all your electronic devices that work with a 220 volt socket (laptop, camera charger, mobile phone, etc.)

Enjoy your road trip in Spain in fully independent vans and motorhomes with VanBreak.

The converted vans are equipped to accommodate between 4 (OCEAN model) and 5 (BEACH model) people.

No, it is forbidden to smoke inside our vans.

Yes, all our camper vans and compact motorhomes have air conditioning and stationary heating to heat your van when it is parked at night and thus spend the night warm.

The stationary heating works using the vehicle’s fuel (diesel) but the consumption is extremely low. Do not risk waking up dehydrated.

In the VW California Beach and Ocean camper vans there are no toilets inside. However, we offer optional dry toilets made of cardboard, with disposable absorbent and anti-odour – non-chemical bags, which you can select when booking.

In the compact motorhome, this model offers a bathroom equipped with toilet, shower, water point, all the comforts as at home.

So, if you need the comfort of a toilet and a bathroom like at home, choose the Burstner CityCar fitted motorhome.

Anyway, you will always find toilets in a restaurant, petrol station, shop, campsite, or you can simply reconnect with mother nature and enjoy the scenery 😊.
