The Austrian company was founded by Vinzenz Eder in 2020 after a botched vacation in Portugal, during which not much worked. “Back then, we noticed a lot of camper vans whose occupants seemed to be having happier holidays than we were,” Eder recalled in an interview.
VW T6.1 Multivan Camper subscription: 999 euros monthly rate at Myvanture
VW California from 1149 euros in the car subscription
Myvanture also offers the VW T6 California with a pop-up roof as a subscription. For the variants “Coast” or “Ocean” at least 1149 euros per month are due (duration from 12 months); with a 6-month subscription period it is 1449 euros per month, with 3 months (minimum term) 1999 euros per month.
The Myvanture Bullis also look cheap when compared to VW’s own subscriptions. At Volkswagen Financial Services (VW FS), a one-month subscription for the VW California Ocean costs a whopping 2799 euros – however, a comparison with Myvanture is not possible here, because the minimum term there starts at three months. With a six-month term, the VW FS monthly rate is reduced to 1899 euros – at least 450 euros more than with Myvanture.
Advantage car subscription: Taxes, insurance and Co are included
All of that doesn’t sound cheap. Depending on the term, it can still be worth subscribing to the camper compared to buying a motorhome. Because taxes, insurance and other ancillary costs are always included in the subscription flat rate.
Above all, the residual value risk, which is difficult to calculate, is eliminated. Even if used motorhomes are currently fetching high prices on the second-hand market, this is no guarantee that models bought today will still be as stable in value in one to three years as they appear today.
There are other providers who have subscriptions to VW campers
Myvanture and VW FS are not the only sources to subscribe to a VW camper van (see table). Subscription provider Faaren also lists some Bulli models.

Sample: Those who book the camper subscription early have an advantage
By the way: As good as the Myvanture offer sounds in theory, it was difficult to get a camper in a practical AUTO BILD sample. Even during the winter months up to March 2023, unfortunately no Bulli subscriptions could be booked with Myvanture. So if you are planning a travel adventure in a flat-rate holiday vehicle for the coming year, you should view and reserve offers early on.
