Cruise America and Cruise Canada motorhome holidays

Cruise America and Cruise Canada motorhome holidays

Motorhomes – or RVs as they are known in North America – let you experience incredible sights at your own pace and allow you the freedom to roam off the tourist trail to discover parts of America or Canada not visited on typical holidays. They are also great value, particularly for families or groups of friends.

As two of America and Canada’s largest RV rental firms, Cruise America and Cruise Canada give you the convenience of an array of pick-up and drop-off points (five locations in Canada and 27 in the USA) as well as the peace of mind of quality vehicles and comprehensive support should you need it. 

Renting a motorhome

A motorhome holiday is one of the most flexible trips we offer.  We love that you can book your flights and your motorhome and then just hit the open road; you don’t even have to have booked your stop off point for that night. If you prefer to have a plan or even firm bookings in place (particularly important in peak periods and in national parks)  our Personal Travel Experts can provide you with itinerary suggestions and point you to websites that detail the campsites available and their facilities. There are over 15,000 campsites throughout the USA and Canada to choose.

Motorhomes are simple to operate and easy to drive with automatic transmission and power breaking and steering. The main difference between vehicle categories is the varying length and the passenger capacity.

Campsites

Campsite styles range from resort-style and charming family-run spots to national park grounds and wilderness retreats. Some sites have electric (30 amps are required), water and waste hook ups, swimming pools, playgrounds and even Wi-Fi, while others are gloriously remote and it’s just you and the wilderness.  We strongly recommend pre-booking over holiday seasons and if you wish to stay in national park campsites.
