caravan laws

Algarve MEP Mendes Bota and Portuguese MP Nuno da Câmara Pereira have proposed new regulations to the government to regulate and protect the activity of motor homing in Portugal.

Both politicians point out the need for Portugal to have more support structures and parking areas for motor homes, which is an environmentally friendly form of tourism, taking the example from countries such as Germany and Italy.

According to the politicians, there are 50,000 motor homes in Portugal, transporting around 100,000 tourists to the country each year.
