Frequently asked questions
Yes, there will be changes. For instance, opening hours, facilities and contact telephone number may change and there may be personal reasons why a host may have to stop before the season ends on 31.03. The Pintrip app is always updated with the latest changes, and if you only use the physical travel guide, it is your own responsibility to stay up to date with this page.
It´s polite to say a simple hallo and goodbye to the host. It´s also central to the original principles of the scheme, when it began in France more than 25 years ago. The purpose of Pintrip is to bring visitors together with locals who are passionate about their place and their products. Moreover, you have to greet the hosts in order to show them your membership card, so they can see that you have a valid membership
Yes, the vast majority of our hosts are open all year round. Please note, however, that some hosts ask that you arrive on a specific time, in accordance with their personal or professional constraints (milking the cows, work in the fields, etc.). For the same reasons a number of hosts are closed at certain periods of the year (grape-picking, harvest, holiday, etc.). At the top of each host page you can see when that host do not receive visits.
No, you are under no obligation to buy the host´s products. If you buy something it’s obviously fantastic, but if you don’t buy anything, it’s also okay. It’s a free overnight stay, so you owe nothing to your host. However, we know that many choose to support and show interests in the places they visit by buying the host’s products, which is a nice way to say thank you for a wonderful experience and a safe, free overnight stay. But once again, you are under no obligation to buy anything from the host.
The hosts are not camp sites, and although they are keen to invite guests inside to learn about their business and their products. Please be considerate of the everyday work of your hosts. Those hosts who require a phone call in advance are clearly marked on each host page.
Yes, but there are some hosts who cannot offer large vehicles a parking pitch. Most often it is because it will be problematic to maneuver a large vehicle at the host. It is clearly stated in the Pintrip Guide on the individual host pages if vehicles over 10 m are welcome. If your motorhome is under 10 m, you are welcome at all our hosts. In the 2023 season, approx. 230 hosts welcome motorhomes over 10 m. If you drive a caravan, you have to look for the caravan icon, even if the host accepts vehicles over 10 m.
Pintrip is best used with a self-sufficient vehicle, and previously Pintrip was exclusively for motorhomes, but in 2023 both rooftop tents and caravans are welcome at some of the Pintrip hosts. Tents of any kind (including pop-up tents and caravan awning tents) are not permitted. If you travel without a toilet, you can only stay overnight with hosts who have access to toilet facilities around the clock (marked with a WC icon).
Every single Pintrip membership helps us maintain and develop the Pintrip concept. In addition, the Pintrip membership is personal and it is tied to person and vehicle, and therefore it cannot be transferred. Our income comes solely from the sale of the Pintrip Guide. Thus, your membership helps us to find new hosts, it helps us to write and publish the Pintrip Guide, and it helps us to develop the Pintrip App and website. In addition, your membership also helps ensure that we can offer you unique experiences and a safe place to spend the night in your vehicle. All of our hosts are committed to welcoming Pintrippers for one year. The current Pintrip Guide is the only one that can give you the latest information and instructions (arrival time, closing days, etc.) because it is up to date. The rules are also in place to protect the hosts who are no longer part of the Pintrip Guide, so they no longer receive visits. That’s why you cannot use last year’s Pintrip Guide this year or give it to a friend.
No, the concept of Pintrip is that we offer visitors to stay one night at each host. This gives you enough time to get to know the place and the host, and it also give other travellers the opportunity to the enjoy these places.
Please do not expect anything in advance. Nevertheless, several hosts offer different facilities, such as electricity, water, toilet and shower facilities. Keep in mind that they often charged a small fee for these facilities. Please always ask before using any facilities, because there might be rules that you have to follow.
The season always runs from the 31st of March to the 31st of March the following year, and the vignette and membership card is also valid during this period. All the information about the hosts is updated once a year. Please always travel with the latest edition of Pintrip. You are not only supporting the idea of Pintrip, but it also ensures that certain problems can be avoided, for example that you don’t visit a host, who no longer is a Pintrip host. Your Pintrip membership is personal and it is tied to person and vehicle, and it cannot be transferred.
Yes, you can use Pintrip if you rent a vehicle because membership is personal and tied to the person and motorhome. If you rent several vehicles throughout the season, you need a new vignette and a new membership card each time you change vehicles. We will be happy to send it to you against a handling fee of 100 DKK and information about your address. For this, we need a photo of the rental contract from the first and second rental car, a photo of the vignette har you have removed from the windscreen, and a photo of the membership card that you wish to cancel.
Each host offers between 1-3 pitches.
Yes, the concept exists in 10 countries in Europe. See all of them on www.fefi.eu
No, although we work closely with the 9 other European countries across national borders, each country requires membership. See the other European travel and experience guides on www.fefi.eu
Do not just drive to the host if they want telephone contact and you cannot reach them. In that case, drive on, but remember there can be many reasons why the host does not pick up the phone, and often the host will call you back.
It is a situation that rarely occurs. If this happens, find another stopover for the night. Often there is another Pintrip host nearby who can offer you a pitch for the night.
Dogs are welcome at more than 90% of our hosts, but they must always be on a short leash.
Among other things, we select our hosts of the following criteria: hospitality, good products, nature, location and peace and quiet. In addition, it is important for us that the hosts really know what it means to be a Pintrip host, and that they want to share their place with others.
Yes, you can. For instance, you can register your visits along the way by checking in/out digitally. When you check in/check out you can also rate a host. The rating is internal, and can only be seen by you and by Pintrip. You can also write to us on email@example.com.
If there is enough room for it, you are allowed to set up camping equipment. Please ask the host if it’s all right before you set up chairs, table etc. Please remember to take the camping equipment inside for the night.
Yes, you can, but you are only allowed to stay with hosts with a listed toilet icon. The toilet icon means that there is access to the toilet 24/7 - around the clock, and this is the case with 80 of our hosts in season 2023. A large part of the hosts also has a toilet available during opening hours, but not when they are closed.
We have received access to all information about the Danish Highway Agency’s service stations in Denmark, and in the back of Pintrip Guide you will find a list showing some of the service stations. They can either be an area with a grate in the middle or some kind of bowl. In both cases black and grey water can be emptied and they are free to use. We recommend the Pintrip App for a full overview and updated information.
Your membership is tied to person and vehicle. Since you write your number plate on your membership card and put the vignette at the windscreen, you need a new vignette and a new membership card when you change vehicle or get a new number plate. We will be happy to send it to you against a handling fee of 100 DKK and information about your delivery address. For this we need a photo of both registration certificates, a photo of the vignette that you have removed from the windscreen and a photo of the membership card that you wish to cancel.
If you are unfortunate enough to have a stone hit your windscreen, remember to take a picture of the vignette showing the number plate of your vehicle. Send it to us by email and we will send you a new vignette within 1-2 days. For this service, we charge a handling fee of 100 DKK. If you forget to take a picture of the vignette, you must buy a new membership.
Until the end of season 2022, the Pintrip app was a digital supplement to the Pintrip Guide. In future when you buy a physical membership, you will still be sent a membership card with a printed membership number, which works for the Pintrip app. The membership number is unique and allows you to download the Pintrip app on 2 devices.
From season 2023, it is possible to buy a digital membership for 399 DKK. In this case the membership card is digital and the membership number is unique and allows you to download the Pintrip app on 2 devices.
Yes, Pintrip app also works offline. But it requires an internet connection when you have to activate the membership and install updates.
We update the app regularly to improve and optimize the user experience. Therefore, it is important that you always install new updates.
