GERMANY RV RENTAL SPECIALS: If you place your McRent, DRM or Rent Easy Germany motorhome rental booking request with IdeaMerge online, our RV rental software will apply any relevant specials from the motorhome 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 the RV rental 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.
Here's why Germany is perfect for an RV rental.
RV rental in Germany is cheaper than anywhere else in Europe. Moreover, Germany lends its outstanding RV's, its central location and its leading international airports at Frankfurt, Munich, Berlin, and Dusseldorf to RV hire tours of Europe in general. From Germany you take your motorhome or campervan rental to Scandinavia (by bridge and/or ferry), Eastern Europe, Greece, and all of Western Europe. You should strongly consider starting and ending your European RV travels in Germany — even if the bulk of your itinerary lies outside Germany.
Our main Germany camper rental stations are at Frankfurt, Mannheim, Munich, Hamburg, Berlin, Duesseldorf 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). Note that Mannheim is quickly reached from the Frankfurt airport (FRA) via RV rental company shuttle or train (there's a train station directly inside the Frankfurt airport). The many rental depots near Duesseldorf are quite close to Amsterdam. Hamburg is a great launching pad for an RV tour of Scandinavia. Likewise Munich is a good place to start and end a tour of Italy.
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 three Germany motorhome hire vendors: McRent, Rent Easy and DRM. The 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 and Rent Easy long-term motorhome hire discounts: 3 percent if your effective rental duration is 2130 nights long, 5 percent if it exceeds 30 nights.
What's more, if the Germany RV rental duration is 31 nights or more and you book it with IdeaMerge, the rental is tax free!
Apart from our unilateral IdeaMerge QUANTUM online discount and said tax-free deal, 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.
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.

Many factors determine the cost of a motorhome or campervan rental in Germany. The factors affecting the RV rental cost include RV size, rental rate seasonality (or whether the rates are so-called flex rates instead re-determined daily or weekly based on supply and demand), and the optional extras you select (many and varied).
For exact total costs, submit a Search above. Our online order software will then present to you all the RVs, whether motorhome, camper van or truck camper, ordered by total price.
If you then click on a 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:
Many optional items are available for hire with an RV rental, and these greatly affect the total cost. The 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.
