Frequently asked questions:
Travel warning and travel ban?

A travel warning is not a general travel ban. The travel warning only advises against tourist travel. Nevertheless, it is important for you and for the protection of others to assess whether a vacation in your chosen country is safe and reasonable. The advantage of a camper in this case, however, is especially the independence and flexibility. In nature and in a camper you can very well keep the distance and hygiene rules for yourself and others. Decide for yourself how you feel about it.

Where can you stay when the campsites are closed?

A closed campsite does not mean the cancellation of your trip. According to Section 12 of the Highway Code, you are allowed to "restore your driving ability" at any public parking lot where it is not expressly prohibited, e.g. by signs. You are allowed to spend the night there, but you must pay attention to the fact that camping is forbidden. That means you can't make yourself at home there and put your camping table and chairs in front of the camper or stay longer than 10 hours. You can find pitches of this type via the app park4night. You can find more information about wild camping in Germany in our blog. There are also special features for business trips. Some campsites offer a possibility to stay overnight for business travelers. Please inform yourself in advance on which campsites have this regulation. With a camper you are flexible and can work from anywhere - discover the FreewayCamper business package.

In which countries is it currently possible to take a vacation?

Currently, some countries in Europe are classified as risk areas by the federal government. You can find all the latest information here and on the Robert Koch Institute site.

Camping despite lockdown?

Nothing stands in the way of a camping vacation despite Corona. Of course, you have to expect some restrictions, but as long as there is no explicit travel ban, you can rent a camper and enjoy your time out. Of course, you must adhere to the distance and hygiene measures and can only travel with your family or another household. If a travel warning has been issued, you should decide for yourself how to proceed and find out exactly about the current rules in your place of residence and destination before you travel. Please be aware that there are heavy fines for violating the exit restrictions or movement radius restrictions. If it is too unsafe for you, feel free to rebook at any time!

What do I do if the borders are closed?

Since you are traveling with a camper, you have maximum flexibility. Your itinerary can be changed at any time and you can still have a great time because you are not tied to one place.

If the rules change during your vacation, you are still allowed to go home because that is considered a valid reason. Also, you don't have to leave on the same day if the rules have changed in your destination country. Inform yourself in time and be prepared for dynamics and flexibility.

Entry from within Germany and other countries

For travelers returning within Germany there is currently (as of 19.04.) no quarantine obligation. A corona test obligation for returnees from risk areas now applies throughout Germany. It affects both air travelers and people who were traveling by train, bus, or car. Also, there are special regulations for the individual federal states. When returning from risk areas outside Germany, a quarantine of 10 days must be observed. However, this can be shortened from the 5th quarantine day by a negative Corona test. Besides, a digital entry declaration must be filled out and presented at border control. In addition, the relevant health office will be informed of the quarantine requirement.

At the latest 48 hours after entering Germany, it must be proven that one has a negative Corona test. This means that if you come from a risk area, you must be tested.
