More than a camper

Absolute convenience, an interior designed for maximum comfort, and modern technology built on the reliable Crafter platform. So you can be sure you’ll feel right at home, whether you’re planning a weekend with friends, a beach holiday, or a honeymoon roadtrip. The Grand Hotel California 680 is available for rent in Hungary only through GoBeyond.

Spacious interior

Almost 7 metres long, with a bright, airy floor plan, lots of windows, and endless storage space. The comforts of home in a motorhome that comfortably accommodates two adults and two small children, yet can easily travel 800 km between nights. And since it doesn’t qualify as a motorhome, you can park it in the main square of an Italian town, within easy reach of freshly baked pastries and coffee in the morning.

Driving and safety

Diesel engine (177LE) 8-speed automatic transmission, Airbags, ISOFIX, Front and Rear Park Assist, satellite system, GPS, sound system, ABS, EBA, ESP, Cruise Control, Traffic Detection, Lane Departure Warning, Crosswind Assist


The bathroom is equipped with a toilet, a shower, and a sink, so you’ll find everything you need to freshen up on the go or start your day in the morning. In the summer, if you want to shower after a day at the beach or after a hike, the outdoor shower with hot water, accessible from the back of the vehicle, is the best option. Don’t worry about the humidity, the ventilation system allows the steam to escape immediately, and if you want to shower at night, the motion-controlled lighting will turn on as soon as you enter the car.

Tech gadgets

Camp like never before! Everything in the camper can be controlled and monitored via a central touch screen: Lights, water, and even the charge level of the secondary battery. The perfect temperature is ensured by the dual-fuel heating system, which is fed directly from the fuel tank. For maximum comfort, the roof is equipped with a stationary cooling system (which works when connected to the mains) and a solar panel system for automatic charging.

    If you rent for more than a month, the rental covers 3500 km. For less than that, 300 km per day is included in the rental. If you drive more than that, you can buy extra kilometers for € 0.25.

    The vehicle must not be used in an area where there is an incident, disturbance, natural disaster, war situation, etc., which could endanger the safety of the vehicle.

    Before you carry out any repairs or maintenance on your vehicle, please contact us! Unauthorised repairs will be considered a breach of contract and the full amount of the deposit will be deducted. You are fully liable for any damage resulting from improper repairs.

    Contact us and we will make arrangements to get help to you as soon as possible.

    Yes, the van has its own router, but you will need to bring your own sim card with you, which has data services that are valid in the countries you are visiting. If you already have a router, you can bring that too - the van has a socket for it.

    The campervan can seat up to 4 people. There is a 170 x 200 double bed in the back and a cot under the bed. Ideal for two adults and a small child!

    Of course, you can, but you should check with us first so that you don't bring two of everything.

    Of course! The campervan has a dual-fuel heating system that runs directly from the fuel tank. When connected to the mains, the roof-mounted air conditioning ensures the perfect temperature in the van on even the hottest days. Below 0 degrees, the vehicle must be dehumidified, so the wet functions cannot be used.

    Unfortunately, pets are not allowed in the Grand Hotel California.


    Although we are passionate skiers, surfers and motorriders, we had to realize that there are other outdoor adventures that cannot be missed.

    Just think about dog sledding in the Arctic under the Northern Lights or driving around in motorhomes from hot spring to hot spring in Iceland or Japan.

    We are constantly on the lookout for great outdoor adventures, but if you don’t find here what you are looking for, we are happy to organize whatever comes to your mind.
