Greece Camper

The Balu is an all-rounder that is perfect to explore Greece. For those who do not have time, the Balu is the wrong motorhome. It is not a new vehicle and you can see his age already. It also needs some driving experience. It has little engine power, no ABS, no airbags. To drivers who have no driving experience or have not driven this size of vehicle yet, the vehicle is not rented. I recommend our Vito Marco Polos.

Technically the vehicle is absolutely perfect. It has power steering, which was an absolute novelty in this class of vehicle forty years ago.

In the rear is a large dinette which can be converted into a large bed (1.90m x 2.00m). There is a bathroom with an outdoor shower and a Porta Potti 365 toilet. A small refrigerator and a gas stove make up the kitchen.

There is also a compressor refrigerator of 41 liters (cools very well even in very hot temperatures) and a solar panel of 290W to support the batteries to be more independent from the normal power grid.

We offer “All inclusive ready to go”. This means that we will pick you up from Athens airport and bring you back. (Transfers included)

For a transfer/return outside the opening hours we are flexible. Please contact us for more information.

The flat rate for use is charged once per rental and includes thorough final cleaning and a flat rate for gas consumption. All you have to do is hand over the vehicle to us broom clean. Broom clean means to dispose of the garbage, wipe the stove and sink, sweep the floor and drain off any remaining water. Just steam off with the high-pressure cleaner on the outside, we will do the rest for you.
