No, you do not need to spend the night in a campsite. Even if some European laws apply here too, wild camping is highly tolerated in Greece as long as you do not stay at the same place for long, disturb neighbors, make a fire, poses a bigger area than the camper etc. As we have in Greece more than 150 amazing Campsites, we recommend you to make a nice combination of wild camping and a great campsite just for regeneration issues.
With us, you can feel relaxed! You can stay overnight at our premises against a small fee & start your road trip adventure whenever you feel like!

The Coronavirus crisis has affected the whole planet. Rolling Turtles is offering campers in Greece, which is currently one of the countries with a very low case and death rate. For more details, please check the official Johns Hopkins statistics website. Given the circumstances, we hope that Greece will be available soon to travel to and spend your vacations. As we are still learning each day from the WHO and the ministries of each country how to live with this new situation, we have updated our cleaning policy for our own’s and our customers’ safety. For protection reasons due to the Coronavirus we decided to disinfect and clean each vehicle inside out by ourselves after dropped off from each renter. The rules regarding the garbage and the fridge and toilet/wc still apply. We added more ways to be protected by Covid-19, during our booking process:
Before the actual cleaning we first disinfect with special cleansers the whole vehicle inside out, as well as any rented extra equipment, wearing a protective suit inclusive mask and gloves. We give extra attention to the surfaces all people touch, such as door handles, the wheel, window openers, etc. In this way we can control that no virus contact can be established between the travelers, or ourselves. After the disinfection we throw away the used suit, mask and gloves in a closed bag. After the disinfection we start with the normal cleaning of the vehicle, inside out. At this step our stuff still wears a protection mask and gloves, but no protective suit. All the procedure during pick up and drop off, between our staff and the renters, is now contactless, to avoid spreading of the coronavirus, while all our staff is keeping the suggested safety distance of 2 meters. Any vehicle introduction needed is now provided with videos sent to renters before their reservation.
Of course! Our company is a representative of leading European manufacturers and offers from time-to-time great deals of various types of Motorhomes, Campers etc. We also offer for sale our used vehicles at regular intervals – as well as our used camping and sporting equipment – so stay tuned and subscribe to our Newsletter to be always up to date for our great offers!
We all hope that it won’t come to that, but just to be prepared: In all vehicle there is a DIN-A4 instruction manual. Please read it carefully prior driving and follow the instructions. In case of damage, please contact us via phone at +302107006815, inform us about what happened and send us photos and any additional information at email@example.com . Always call the police and the insurance company and make a protocol incl. sketch upon their arrival, which you please send us afterwards. You can find a draft within the vehicle documents. Look for any witnesses and keep a note of their contact info. Never leave the accident area without taking all above measures. We will take care of the insurance/road assistance and inform them about the circumstances, if you need to be picked up, for example.
Smoking is strictly forbidden in all of our vehicles. For more information, please refer to our AGB Terms & Conditions.
Unfortunately, not yet, but we are trying our best to offer this option soon.
YES, definitely. In Greece, it is MANDATORY by the Greek Legislation and the POLICE – for the period starting 01/10 until 01/05 – to either have special WINTER TYRES/SNOW TYRES with the special symbol “M+S” on your vehicle or alternatively carry and install immediately complex SNOW CHAINS in case of tough weather conditions like snow or ice. This is very often the case during the winter time in Greece, so as a matter of fact its not just another obligation but a real fact which need to be addressed with great professionalism for your own safety. As you may know, it is extremely complicated to apply properly complex SNOW CHAINS, especially in difficult weather conditions with ice, snow and extremely low temperatures. For this reason and for your safety and comfort, if you rent a camper from 01/10 until 01/05 with us, SPECIAL WINTER TIRES will be applied to your vehicle by default automatically prior pick up. This is a mandatory service against a small fee, which will be charged automatically into your reservation by the Booking Engine, if your pick up and drop off time are during the above period.
