HOW DOES IT WORK? 

RV Worldwide is the authority on International RV travel exchanges and the 'Go to' place to arrange an RV / Motorhome / Campervan International exchange through being a website built and maintained for this express purpose. Since 2008 our members have enjoyed many very successful International RV exchanges which have been made possible through RV Worldwide. Over the past 9 years RV Worldwide has proved to be a very successful concept and many of our members have now enjoyed worldwide vacations for a fraction of the cost of the alternative of renting an RV etc. The small cost of listing on RV Worldwide is saved in less than the first day of travel! If you have an RV you can exchange with other likeminded RV owners worldwide and save! RV owners know the freedom of RV travel and now can use their RV investment to realise their dreams of travelling the world to explore and live like a local.

To be able to contact any of our RV owning members you are required to become a member yourself which includes listing your RV as available for exchange.

Becoming a member gives you the opportunity (for a very reasonable cost) to fully detail your RV (Including Photographs) and your travel desires, dreams and aspirations.

You can list (and also update your listing details) from anywhere in the world at any time (24/7).

 

HOW DO I MAKE AN EXCHANGE?

It's very easy:

1. Join RV Worldwide by becoming a member and listing your RV.

2. Contact other members through RV Worldwide secure messaging facility and arrange an exchange.

3. Or you will be contacted by members of RV Worldwide to give you the opportunity to travel to countries you may never have thought possible.

 

IS IT SAFE?

Please read our ‘How safe is it’ page which will answer all your questions.

 

WHAT ABOUT INSURANCE AND LIABILITY?

As every country (and insurance company) has different requirements we urge you to discuss this with your insurance company and your proposed exchange partners.  It may be necessary to have a suitable extension added to your policy or it if necessary change insurance companies to ensure you are fully covered when the other party is using your RV. 

 

DO WE HAVE TO EXCHANGE AT THE SAME TIME?

No.  This is just one of the many advantages in exchanging your RV as it does not require a simultaneous exchange.  In fact, if you are exchanging with someone in the other hemisphere it may be that you both travel in the summer at your destination, which will mean that your exchanges could be 6 months apart.

 

WHO WOULD WANT TO USE MY RV?

Naturally, your RV could be substantially different to that owned by the member you are exchanging with.  However, those who use RV Worldwide are well travelled RV owners like yourself and will soon adapt to different vehicles.  We suggest that you try to exchange similar vehicles for ease of driving, however vehicles from North America are generally larger than European or Australasian vehicles - but then the roads are also wider!

 

HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?

The cost of a 24 month membership to RV Worldwide is just USD89.90, which is a very small cost in relation to the total cost of international travel. The small cost of listing on RV Worldwide is a fraction of the cost of the alternative of renting an RV and is saved in less than the first day of travel.

Joining RV Worldwide gives you the opportunity to arrange an unlimited number of exchanges within the duration of your membership. We suggest that you plan in advance by joining and listing your RV 12 to 24 months before you plan to travel. This will give you a greater choice of RV’s for exchange plus it does take time to arrange an exchange even after you have located a suitable exchange partner.

You will need to pay for general RV running costs (fuel, servicing, mileage tax (Required in some countries) and perhaps additional insurance costs which you would arrange with your exchange party), plus the usual overnight parking charges.

 

HOW MUCH CAN I SAVE?

You will save the cost of hiring a RV, or a car plus accommodation costs - which depending on the country you are traveling to could be several hundred dollars a night! (You will already know the savings that are made, being the owner of an RV or similar.) The cost of joining RV Worldwide will be recovered in the first day of your travels!

 

CAN I EXCHANGE WITHIN MY OWN COUNTRY?

Yes.  This can save you time and money.  With high fuel costs it makes sense to fly across country to spend your time exploring a portion of the country that you haven't seen before. 

 

HOW LONG CAN I EXCHANGE FOR?

This is up to what is agreed between both parties to the exchange but it doesn't need to be for the same length of time as everyone has different time available. However, if one party requires a substantially longer period it may be fair to include the extra time as a hire, at a negotiated rate, as it may also be that a greater mileage is to be covered.

 

WHAT IS RV WORLDWIDE'S PRIVACY POLICY?

Please view our Privacy Policy

 

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF A RV EXCHANGE COMPARED TO A HOME EXCHANGE?

You are exchanging not just somewhere to stay but also your transportation.  This gives you the freedom to explore a larger area of your chosen destination than would be possible if you were fixed in one location.  The other great benefit is that it's not necessary to exchange at the same time, which means that the other party will be able to meet you and give you one-on-one advice before you start exploring. 

 

WHAT IS THE ADVANTAGE OF USING RV WORLDWIDE?

This is a dedicated website for the exchange of RV's or similar.  It brings like-minded, independent, travel loving RV owners together and enables you to fulfil your travel dreams at a realistic cost. RV Worldwide members have now been exchanging their RV’s worldwide since 2008 and is now the ‘go to’ place for international RV exchanges through being a dedicated website built and maintained for this express purpose.

 

 

WHAT IF MY RV GETS A SPEED CAMERA TICKET WHEN THE OTHER PARTY IS USING IT?

We suggest that you complete an agreement to ensure that there is no dispute as to who is responsible for any fines.  Use are welcome to use the sample ‘Exchange Agreement’ we provide you with (on request) as a basis to document what you are providing and what you expect from your exchange partner.

 

WILL MY DRIVERS LICENSE BE ACCEPTED ELSEWHERE?

All countries have their own regulations in regards to driver’s licenses, with most accepting an International Driver’s license.  The party you are exchanging with can advise you on this as it may need to be addressed with their insurance company also. 

 

IS IT POSSIBLE TO HIRE OUT MY RV THROUGH RV WORLDWIDE?

Yes!  For those who wish to generate additional income. (List in the 'Rent' category.)

This is a great way to earn a return from the investment you have made in your RV or Motorhome!

 

CAN I JUST HIRE AN RV THROUGH RV WORLDWIDE?

Yes. Any of our ‘rent’ listings can be contacted direct by any user without needing to join RV Worldwide to do so.

 

WHAT IS THE ARTICLES AREA?

The Articles area is a free service for which we will be gradually building up the number of Articles and Videos to provide you with helpful advice and information when you are planning - or even just thinking about - an RV / Motorhome / Campervan International exchange.

WHY DOES MY LISTING TITLE HAVE A NUMBER ADDED TO IT?

This is for both administration purposes (to identify each listing) plus the software we use requires each listing title to be unique (i.e. used only once) and by adding a number we solve this issue.

Enjoy exciting and safe travels worldwide with an RV / Motorhome / Campervan International exchange through RV Worldwide.
