You may think that now summer is over here in the UK it’s time for you to start packing away your motorhome or campervan for the winter – however this isn’t true! In fact, autumn is the perfect time to visit some of the most iconic and naturally beautiful places in Europe, and to make things even better you may be able to save some money on your trip as you won’t be visiting at the same time as everyone else!
However, we know that it’s often hard to figure out where to start when it comes to planning a trip around Europe, especially if you’ve only ever been in the summer months. This is where Comfort Insurance comes to the rescue with our very own Autumn Road Trip guide! We have selected a route across Europe that will take you through a number of famous locations including Berlin, Verona and Barcelona. Furthermore, we have chosen a range of activities and famous sites for you to visit while in each location, meaning all you have to do is sit back and take in the amazing scenery!

Autumn Motorhome and Campervan Holidays
As already mentioned, autumn is a great time to arrange a motorhome or campervan holiday as many campsites charge less due to the fact you are not staying in the peak period. This means that you can either pocket some extra cash or use your savings to spoil yourself along you journey! Another thing to remember about traveling in autumn is that the roads will generally be clearer as children will be back at school meaning you won’t have to spend a large chunk of your journey waiting in traffic. Finally, autumn doesn’t officially ‘start’ in most European countries at the same time as in the UK, which means you can take advantage of the last rays of sunshine in countries such as Spain and Italy!
Our Autumn Road Trip
Here at Comfort Insurance we know that no two motorhome owners are the same, and as such our Autumn Road Trip won’t suit all. However, the great thing about our road trip is that it can be easily adapted to suit your preferences and the types of activities you like to take part in while on holiday. For example, if wandering around flea markets in Barcelona isn’t your thing you can always head over to the Nou Camp which is home to the world-famous Barcelona football team! The whole point of our guide is to show our readers how easy it is to plan the ideal autumn road trip and provide some inspiration should you need it.
Camping across Europe
Unfortunately, there has been a recent spate of attacks on motorhomes parked in French service stations overnight. Some families have even claimed that they were gassed while their motorhome were robbed, however experts have suggested that this is very unlikely. Regardless of the situation, the fact of the matter is that you need to make sure you stay safe while traveling around Europe. This is why we have provided a number of suggested campsites to stay in throughout your trip, however please make sure you check that they have suitable facilities before you head there!
