It is possible to pay via credit card and invoice on CamperDays. We will explain to you what you should bear in mind when paying.

You have found a suitable campervan offer and entered your personal information? Then all that’s left is to enter your payment details.

Paying via credit card for your campervan

You can book any campervan offer with a credit card. It is important that this is a Visa or Mastercard, other credit cards are often not accepted. Simply enter your credit card details at the time of booking in the enter payment details step. CamperDays will pre-authorise the full rental price on the credit card immediately after your booking (in Euros).

This means that this amount is blocked directly and is no longer available to you. Within 21 days of your successful booking, it will then be debited from your credit card account. If the booking is not successful, for example because the desired campervan is not available, the pre-authorisation will be released again immediately.

Paying via invoice for your campervan

If you choose this method of payment, you can secure your campervan bindingly at an early stage, but do not have to pay the rental price until later. As a rule, the invoice amount is due around six weeks before your departure. The exact date depends on the respective rental company and is stated on the invoice as well as on our homepage before the booking. Please note, however, that even before payment of the invoice it is a binding booking, for which the rental conditions and the General Terms and Conditions apply.

If the option to pay by invoice is not available, this is usually because you are making a short-term booking. You will usually need to pay for this by credit card.

Can I book a campervan without a credit card?

You can book your campervan without a credit card by paying by invoice, but you will need a credit card made out to the main driver at the latest when you collect the vehicle. The deposit that you have to leave with the rental company is always blocked on a credit card.

Credit card checklist

  • The credit card must usually be issued in the name of the main driver.

  • Make sure that the credit card has a sufficient credit limit for the deposit.

  • Remember your credit card PIN, as you will usually need to type it in to release the deposit amount.

  • Your credit card must be a full credit card (not a prepaid or debit card).

Can I pay in a different currency?

Unfortunately it is only possible to pay in Euros. If your credit card is issued in a different currency, your booking price may appear different on your bank statement. In the event of refunds, the exchange rate may cause fluctuations between the booking price and the refund price. Sadly this is not something we are able to change or influence.
