When to Hire a campervan for the 2020 Tour de France

The best option for international travellers is to fly into Paris as all hires start with pick up from our depot near the town of Sens (an easy journey from Paris – trains depart hourly and the fastest trains take just 56 mins). Needless to say, if you want to bring your own bikes you are very welcome to as all of our vehicles are equipped with bike racks.

For those arriving for the start of the tour, Nice is a two-day drive away from our depot. You can pick up and drop off on any day but we recommend collecting your campervan or motorhome in the afternoon of Wednesday 24th June. This allows time to collect your vehicle, shop for supplies, head to Nice and be in position by Friday lunchtime before Le Tour start on Saturday 27th June  (this will give you time before the start if you want to be in position earlier). Nice is a beautiful, seaside city so it is well worth arriving there at least a day before the tour starts to soak up the atmosphere and our 2020 Tour de France special packages will allow you to do just that.

On your return, you can either, come back at the end of stage 19 on the Friday in Champagnoles (4 hours drive away)  to the depot ready to drop off on Saturday 18th July morning. We will transfer you to the train station in Sens to get into Paris Saturday afternoon ready for the finish at the Champs-Elysees.

Or, you can follow the tour all the way through to Paris and return on Monday 20th July where we can get you back to the train station in Sens and up to Paris in the morning.

Whether you want to follow the whole tour, dip in and out along the route or just enjoy the beautiful scenery of France in June and July, you’ll be enchanted by the beautiful scenery, history, and culture of the world’s most visited country. Don’t forget, when you are a campervan or motorhome for the Tour de France for more than 21 days, you can also benefit from our offer below.
