ITALY MOTORHOME RENTAL SPECIALS: If you place your Italy motorhome hire booking request with IdeaMerge online, our software will apply any relevant specials from the vendor as well as our own IdeaMerge QUANTUM online discount.
Book early to secure availability. Many clients book RV hire months in advance. Moreover, said discount tends to be higher the earlier an RV rental booking is made.
You may be surprised to learn that RV travel is extremely popular in Italy. Many RV brands are manufactured in Italy, and ownership of motorhomes is common there. Many Italians use RV's for business travel. Consequently cities especially are graced by many high-quality campgrounds. Overall, some 2000 campgrounds dot the peninsula.
When in Italy do as the Italians do — travel by RV.
At the famous Cinque Terra on the Italian coast near France, car parks above the villages provide a place to park your rental motorhome or campervan and walk down to the respective village. Some of those car parks allow RVs to camp overnight, for a fee.
Italy also boasts several dozen rural, destination RV campgrounds — some seaside, some in the mountains, some in the hills of Tuscany — which feature water parks, spas, bars and restaurants. Europeans are fond of spending weeks at these remarkable holiday camping parks. See the Top Campings website www.topcampings.com.
At least two RV campgrounds in Italy merit special mention. One of these is in Florence, Italy, immediately below and to the right of the Piazzale Michelangelo as you face the city from the Piazzale. The view from the Piazzale at sunset is unforgettable: the River Arno running from the grapey night, hugging the bluff's base, passing the silhouetted mountain that is Brunelleschi's magnificent dome, cutting through the city's plateau of desultory red roofs, suffering bridge after antique bridge, and taking on before the folded arms of the horizon's hills the glow of memory and promise. The view from the campground is essentially the same.
The other campground is across the lagoon from none other than Venice, Italy. Camp with your rental motorhome or camper van on the shore and look across to the glorious city. From the campground entrance take the regular boat service across the lagoon for a ten-minute approach to the city that'll have you pinching yourself. Tip: Buy your boat tickets at the campground entrance (little or no line) rather than at the boat dock (long line).
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.
We use our buying power to offer you big savings versus booking direct.
Moreover, 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:
FERNANDO SALDANHA BARROSAgain, our experience with Idea Merge, and more specifically with Fridon Holliday was great. The service was very friendly, the whole deal was served and we were given a New Motor Home and so in perfect condition. Traveled approximately 4000 Km without any trouble or inconvenience. We continue to recommend your rental system. Read More
Maikke and Lew HineOur motorhome was fantastic, no problem with the motor or the rest of the vehicle fit-out. Our trip to Northern Italy, Switzerland, Austria and a touch of Germany was absolutely fabulous; 1800kms travelled and no problems and no scratches to the vehicle. We travelled on all the quiet roads through small towns and the views were breathtaking. The beds were very comfortable. Read More
Nick AdamsonHighly recommended way to see Italy. We prefer quiet villages and countryside to cities and the choice to drive up any road if we like the look of it. This approach took us to some wonderful locations not overrun with crowds. We took off with a map and just a general idea of where we wanted to go. One highlight was the decision to drive to the Abruzzo mountains after discovering the Amalfi Coast was closed due to road damage. It highlights the flexibility a camper van gives you. Read More
It all adds up to savings and peace of mind.
