“Everything I expected and more”
Reviewed 9 September 2016 for a stay in July 2016

Great experience! The camper vans are quite new and in good shape. We saw a number of other people all over Portugal with indie campers as we traveled, so it was a fun community to be a part of.
The staff is incredibly helpful and was available to us via phone/what'sapp for the entire trip if we ever needed anything.
I rented the camper with very little experience driving stick shift (not the best idea) and got amazing encouragement and teaching when I first arrived and picked it up. I think it was Carina who rented the van out to us and she spent an incredible amount of time with me helping me get used to driving and showing me and my friends what to do around Faro. I cannot overemphasize how amazing and helpful she was!!
When we returned the van in Porto, we had Diogo who was also incredibly nice and dropped us off at the nearest train station so we could get downtown.
What a rad company! Thanks for an awesome vacation.

“Van life dream's for real”
Reviewed 7 September 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Every thing went well with indie camper. They pretty much made our trip possible. The Crew was very nice to us and very helpful and friendly. To be honest I was a bit nervous at first because I had read some bad experience with them but I would recommend them to anyone really. The Van itself was almost new. very good conditions. We manage to leave in there for about 10 days and it has never been a problem.

“Awesome family adventure!”
Reviewed 24 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Luis and we team were fantastic from day one. The booking process was easy and friendly and Luis was happy to communicate through WhatsApp and responded very quickly. The van was incredible fun and had everything that we needed. We have two little boys aged two and three who were right at home on the top bunk! And the two child seats fitted in perfectly. Luis picked us up and dropped us of exactly where we needed to be. Thanks for a fantastic break. P.s our boys named the camper van 'Boris'! :-)

“Amazing experience”
Reviewed 24 August 2016 for a stay in August 2016

I've rented a campervan from Indie Campers two years in a row now. I can't imagine any better way to travel in Portugal. Park in the city of you want a night out, or right by the beach if you want to wake up to the sound of waves. The freedom is priceless.

Only reason they don't get five stars is only minor issues. The first time we couldn't connect our smartphones to the stereo to be able to listen to our Portugal road trip playlists that we worked so hard on, and one of the electricity outlets wasn't working which made charging of phones and portable speakers slightly complicated. The second time around the hose for the water faucet kept coming off which made doing food and dishes a hassle.

I recommend Indie Campers for everyone. Great staff, good communication through e-mail, user-friendly website. Go Indie!
