SKANDIVANIA is the rental of campervans. SKANDIVANIA is your off-grid travel for freedom as well as to campsites in Europe.
Enough power on the go for lighting and appliances is provided by a 100Ah LiFePO4 battery with the option of fast charging via solar panel or alternator. The capacity of the battery is sufficient for, for example, an hour of water boiling with an induction hob, virtually unlimited lighting or several days of refrigerator operation, assuming the battery would not charge at all. But that would require parking the car in a cave. Conversely, on a sunny day, the battery is at full capacity after a couple of hours, or doesn’t discharge at all under a lighter load. Moreover, the installed battery type can be safely discharged up to 90% capacity. An induction hob, laptop or other 220V appliance is powered by a voltage converter with up to 2000W – which makes coffee in a mocha machine (kotogo) in seconds. In addition, the car can be connected at the campsite or other civilisation via the built-in mains adapter.
The cars are equipped with a 40l fridge, a complete set of kitchen equipment for 4 people, an induction hob and a gas grill. While we don’t assume that you’re renting our cars for the purpose of preparing overly elaborate meals, we still try to accommodate creative cooks with the equipment as much as possible. Of course, coffee, tea and basic condiments are also included in the equipment.
Each scandivan carries a built-in sink with a tap, a tank for drinking and used water and a chemical toilet. A folding outdoor shower with a built-in pump is included – so you don’t need a tree or other elevated point to shower, perhaps just a bit of sun. Additionally, we include a quick-drying towel and bath towel for each crew member with the rental. We use a degradable eco-solvent in the cars, so it is possible to drain the water in the countryside.
PAPER-WISE IN ORDER
All our scandivans are approved and registered as motorhomes. So there are no unpleasant surprises waiting for you at the roadside check. The wiring is properly approved and has an inspection report, so you can plug in your electricity at any campsite. All scandivans are insured as motorhomes. Due to complex legislation this is not standard, but we have gone to the trouble to ensure your comfort.
WHAT TO TAKE WITH YOU?
Clothes, cosmetics, a good book and maybe some food. Towels, duvets, drinking water and a complete set of kitchen equipment are ready for you in the SKANDIVAN.
WHERE CAN I PICK UP/RETURN THE VAN AND CAN YOU WATCH MY CAR?
Unless otherwise agreed, the scandivan must be picked up and returned to the company’s address in Modra. If you arrive by car, you can park in our yard during the rental period. If you are travelling by bus or train, we will be happy to pick you up.
CAN I DRIVE A SCANDIVAN?
The van is only a little longer than a normal passenger car and doesn’t need any special cornering. The higher seating position distorts the distance from the centre line a bit, but it’s a great view. Given the weight of the car, you shouldn’t confuse a van trip with a rally. Reversing is fine thanks to the camera. We recommend a short test drive when taking delivery.
WHERE CAN I PARK OVERNIGHT?
Practically everywhere where it is not expressly forbidden. Skandivans do not try to attract unnecessary attention, at first glance they do not resemble a caravan, they do not have a large awning sticking out of them… So you can sleep briefly and unobtrusively even in a parking lot in a city where camping outside the camping site may be prohibited. Great tips can be found in the free app PARK4NIGHT.
VIGNETTE AND INSURANCE
Skandivans have a Slovak vignette and compulsory insurance coverage with maximum assistance services such as towing or short-term hotel accommodation allowance.
CAN I RENT A CAR FOR LESS THAN 5 DAYS?
We try to make the most of our cars, so we primarily want to avoid weekend rentals. However, if there are less than 5 days between bookings, or if you have a good reason for a short loan, give us a call and we’ll work something out 🙂
WHAT IS THE CAPACITY OF THE SCANDINAVIANS?
BEAR has 3 seats in the cabin and offers ISOFIX child seat attachment.
FALCON has 2 swivel seats in the cabin.
The LYNX can carry 5 people, supports 2 child seats and offers sleeping for the whole crew thanks to a tent on the roof of the vehicle (180×120 cab & 200×120 tent)
CAN I DRIVE SKANDIVAN?
All our vans are passenger cars up to 3.5t, so you only need a B licence. We hire our vans to relaxed drivers over 24 years of age with at least two years’ experience behind the wheel.
CONSUPTION AND MAXIMUM SPEED
The consumption outside the city is a pleasant 8.5l /100km when driving up to 120 km/h. 120 is also the maximum speed of our vans, not only because of your consumption.
DO SCANDIVANS HAVE AIR CONDITIONING?
Neither BEAR nor FALCON have air conditioning. In hot weather you need to open the window on the way, you won’t be tearing up the asphalt with motorhomes anyway. When camping and at night, the 2 sunroofs will keep you cool, and one has a built-in fan for forced air circulation. The cars also have 2 more propellers for fast air exchange. The LYNX has a sunroof located under the garden that cools you down while driving and can be used for night ventilation. However, if you like your car cooled down to 18 degrees, you won’t be happy.
BREAKDOWN OR ACCIDENT
In the event of a breakdown or accident, the first thing to do is to keep a cool head and contact us. We will arrange for the repair or towing of the vehicle and your safe return home according to the terms of the contract.
TOWBARS AND BIKE RACK
BEAR and LYNX have folding racks for 2 classic bikes on the tailgate. LYNX has a towing device.

WE ARE SKANDIVANIA
We are Lucka and Michal, a small family company from Modra. We have been toying with the idea of setting up our own business and providing the quality of service we expect ourselves – modern, human, open, honest and last but not least sustainable. These qualities, combined with the reference to van rental, are also hidden in the name SKANDIVANIA or SKVAN for short and more locally, because we believe that the demand for quality services is still growing in Slovakia.
We are open and tolerant people also thanks to the fact that we have the opportunity to travel and explore the world. We are tempted by journeys full of knowledge both at home and abroad. It is for such trips and travellers that we focus on building and renting campervans, i.e. camper vans.
We follow the principles set out above when converting our campervans. We strive as much as possible to use natural and recycled materials, upcycling of older components and residue-free. That is why we insulate with sheep’s wool, clad with wood, make small accessories ourselves from bio-plastic, filter the water in the tubs and use solar energy. Thanks to this, when you choose our vans, you will not only have a good experience on the road, but also a good feeling!
