    I am just planning/pricing a bit of an adventure and considering driving down to Italy then on a ferry across to Greece and back via Bulgaria and Romania (actually I might take it slowere and leave the vehicle in Romania for another trip next year but that's another story...)

    I am a bit of a novice when it comes to ferries... If I booked a "deck" ticket, would I be allowed to kip in the MoHo?

    When travelling with Αnek-Superfast You can spend the entire crossing from Italy to Greece and vice versa in the comfort of your own camper/caravan, while taking advantage of the on board showers, WC, and 220 Volt power outlets.

    The Camping on Board service is available from 1st April until 31st October for the venice, Ancona and Bari lines.

    We have done the Camping on Board with our motorhome several times - it's great! If there is anything we can help you with then just shout (post).

    it's not the cheapest but under three hundred Euros in August is probably reasonable value! Thank you both!

    If you leave your van in Romania until next year remember you will need a full UK mOT to be legal.

    I would be interested in what you work out for vehicle insurance for the trip as I'm considering doing something similar some day.

    Good point! I would have to put 12 months on before I left, I'd be planning to go over in the Spring for a tour and the return leg.

    One of my biggest fears is the freezing winters. Living in leafy Surrey I don't really bother winterising my van, but when it gets down to -20 with metres of snow...!

    Another good point! I will check this out and report back.
