Dear Camper Iceland friends
We have started to fetch our fleet from the garage and are getting ready for the seasons. Here is a picture from the first 4 of over 80 vehicles that got to see the daylight.
The travel business has been facing really difficult times. Businesses that were open have our deepest respect. It must have been difficult to face a complete shut down. For us at Camper Iceland it’s a different story our season starts slowly and high season is normally in July & August. Let’s hope that this pandemic crisis is over by then.
We received an email from our online system provider that states increased bookings in the motor home business worldwide. That is good news and as we have pointed out a motor home is a great choice at any case including the pandemic situation. A motor home allows you to avoid the crowd. It allows you to choose if you want to dine in or out. It is like your home on wheels and allows you to uphold a hygienic standard. F.e. our motor homes are used by 6-10 customers per year and cleaned in between rentals. You can imagine how many times a hotel room is used in the same time period.
Perhaps one of a few years in the history of tourism where the sites are almost empty. The flight schedules are being updated and Iceland is still open for business.

Here is today’s statistic that shows even better numbers:
