Maharashtra: You can now rent campervans to explore tourist hotspots

Amid the ongoing pandemic, travel almost seems out of bounds, unless you are required to take that risk for any reason. Naturally, you must be missing the outdoors. In such a scenario, Maharashtra brings to you a little surprise to get set for traveling again. Reportedly, you can now go on an adventurous vacation or visit tourist hotspots by renting a customised caravan vehicle, when in Maharashtra. Recently, the state-run Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC) and Mothom jointly launched campervans to encourage people to go on road trips again.

This kind of travel is especially attractive in today’s scenario, i.e., in the times of global pandemic. This type of travel enables you to skip that airport or, as a matter of fact, buses and train stations. In fact, renting a campervan allows you to get rid of the anxiety of getting infected, explore places at your own pace. All you have to do is pick a scenic spot of your choice, pull up your van, and make it your bedroom.

The Minister of Tourism Aaditya Thackeray and the Minister of State for Tourism Aditi Tatkare recently today flagged off the venture.

Motohom currently owns two vehicles, i.e., a minivan that will be perfect for a road trip for one or two, while the other one, i.e., a traditional motorhome will be perfect for small families. The minivan comes equipped with a rear passenger seat area, which you can convert into a flatbed, and also has a repurposed trunk. It also comes enhanced with a detachable living space that can provide you extra room on the roof. However, the larger campervan comes with a kitchen, a small bedroom, a living room, a ‘terrace’ space on the roof, and a bathroom. Further, both the vans have a waste disposal system.

Apart from these, the vehicles also have been enhanced with front- and rear-mounted close circuit cameras for security, and GPS tracking to help travellers in case of a breakdown. There is a security siren on board, which you can hit to ward off any potential danger; then there is this SOS button to help you out.

Booking details:

You can book these vehicles by directly going to Motohom’s website. While the smaller van is available currently for INR 4,000/day, the larger one comes with a driver, whereas an attendant can also be rented for INR 21,000/day.

Note: As of now, you can rent these campervans to explore only Maharashtra.
