GERMANY MCRENT and DRM SPECIALS: If you place your Germany motorhome rental booking request with IdeaMerge online, our software will apply any relevant specials from the RV hire vendor as well as our own IdeaMerge QUANTUM online discount.
We use our buying power to offer you big savings versus booking direct.
Book early to secure availability. Many clients book Germany motorhome hire months in advance. Moreover, said discount tends to be higher the earlier an RV hire booking is made.
Why is Germany perfect for an RV rental? Motorhome and campervan rentals in Germany are considerably less expensive than RV rentals anywhere else in Europe. Indeed, you should strongly consider starting and ending your European RV travels in Germany — even if the bulk of your itinerary lies outside Germany. Germany lends its outstanding motorhomes, its central location and its leading international airports at Berlin, Dusseldorf, Frankfurt, and Munich to RV tours of the more extended parts of Europe, including Scandinavia (now much more accessible, via a bridge between Denmark and Sweden), Eastern Europe and Greece (where, yes, the included insurance is effective), as well as neighboring France, Switzerland, Austria, the Alps and Italy.
Our main Germany camper rental stations are at Berlin, Dusseldorf, Cologne, Frankfurt, Hamburg, Mannheim, Munich and Stuttgart, but motor home hire stations exist near secondary German cities as well (most notably in the south, near Bavaria's Munich and the adjacent countries Austria and Switzerland).
All Germany RV rentals booked through IdeaMerge can be taken (by ferry or the Channel Tunnel) to/from the United Kingdom and Ireland. The RV's steering wheel will of course be on the left side of these Germany-based motorhomes. Though you can indeed legally drive such RVs and VW campers on the other side of the road, as it were, in the British Isles, the driver will typically not be able to see around immediately preceding vehicles well enough to overtake these vehicles and will therefore in this respect have to rely on the eyes of a trusted passenger.
We represent two Germany motorhome hire vendors: DRM and McRent. The two companies offer slightly different motorhomes and sets of prices, seasons, depots, and accessories, as well as slightly different insurance and policies — which differences IdeaMerge carefully points out to you.
Our highly customized online Germany motorhome rental reservation software will compute a total, all-inclusive price for any RV rental parameters you select. Note that all the Germany camper rentals here represented include unlimited kilometers.
General DRM long-term motorhome rental discount: 5 percent if your effective rental duration exceeds 34 nights.
General McRent long-term motorhome hire discounts: 3 percent if your effective rental duration is 2130 nights long, 5 percent if it exceeds 30 nights.
Apart from our IdeaMerge QUANTUM online discount, the prices and policies presented on the IdeaMerge website match the prices and policies of our suppliers. You aren't paying extra by going through IdeaMerge — in fact you're paying less, thanks to our unilateral, QUANTUM discount.
IdeaMerge facilitates the whole RV rental booking process, presenting a single total cost you can count on — and acting for you as an accessible resource and, if necessary, as a mediator.

For more info, submit a Search above. Our online order software will then present to you all the RVs, whether motorhome, camper van or truck camper.
If you then click on an RV thumbnail image or on the "More Info" text link adjacent to that image, the software will present the following info specific to the RV and dates:
Any optional items (e.g. camping table and chairs, bedding, shuttle transfer) are presented during our online order process, along with selectable pick-up and return times.
In many cases the RV rental company offers an inclusive package that bundles together a set of optional extras for one relatively low price. Again, don't worry about those packages. Just select à la carte the options you want and our software will apply an inclusive package if such is available and if such package indeed gives you a lower price than actually paying for the options à la carte.
Similarly, RV rental companies often offer specials that involve optional extras. Such specials can be complicated and hard for customers to understand. Again, our software is carefully programmed and maintained to automatically apply any specials that benefit you.
We think our software is unique in terms helping our customers optimize their RV rental and minimize their costs in these important respects. Our aim is to provide you with the best value and to increase our sales as a result.

We do NOT charge a booking fee. On the contrary, we discount our prices far below those of our suppliers.
Likewise but more uniquely still, we do NOT charge a credit card transaction fee. Most of our competitors charge a credit card transaction fee of about 2%! (They bury mention of that fee deep in their Terms and Conditions; search those terms for the word "surcharge" or the phrase "credit card" to see their surcharge acknowledged.)
Furthermore, we do indeed charge your card in the currency you choose above. Thus no unwelcome suprises will be consequent of the charge. The charge in that currency will post to your account in exactly the amount we quoted; and no foreign currency transaction fee from your credit card company can apply to the charge.
We use our guaranteed Super Saver Exchange Rates — meant to be the best retail exchange rates available out there — to arrive at that guaranteed amount (i.e. if your currency is indeed different than the supplier's currency).
To be sure, our Super Saver Exchange Rates are NOT the interbank (i.e. wholesale) exchange rates which the big banks give to each other and which are typically the rates presented by Google and financial websites — and commonly also by our competitors, to give misleadingly low quotes — but they ARE the best rates you as an individual consumer can take advantage of. This is to say, our exchange rates are meant to be considerably better for you than the rates which Visa or MasterCard and the banks use to translate foreign currencies into cardholder currencies.
Most uniquely we offer three payment options in relation to currency, one of which options you can select during our online order process:
Bob FogelsonThis is a totally unsolicited note of pure praise for IdeaMerge from a retired local judge who admires competence and doesn't suffer fools graciously. If someone can please this cynical old coot, they probably can please anyone. My wife and I, in our 70's, recently returned from a ten week RV trip through Europe. Our RV rental was arranged through IdeaMerge, and picked up in Germany. Prior to this experience we had no prior dealings with or knowledge of IdeaMerge. Read More
Andrew EdmondsonWe rented a motorhome through IdeaMerge and i have to say that it was one of the most professional experiences I have had on a holiday booking. All the information prior to pickup was very comprehensive. The motorhome itself exceeded our expectations as it was brand new. So all in all I thoroughly recommend using this company (and as others have said they were also the best value). I agree with others comments about bedding and kitchen equipment but this was relatively minor and we were expecting it anyway from the reviews we had read. Read More
Mike EdwardsI have hired from both McRent and DRM directly in the past, and in April 2014 from McRent again, but through IdeaMerge I have the highest regard for IdeaMerge and Doug Bredesen. Doug actually assisted me with a previous hire, even though I had dealt directly with the hire company for my booking and it was based on this, that I dealt through IdeaMerge for my most recent hire, and will continue to do so in future. Dealing with IdeaMerge also worked out cheaper than dealing directly with the rental companies. Read More
It all adds up to savings and peace of mind.
