First Responder Discounts

First Responders Get 15% Off Camper Van Rentals

It’s Time to Take Care of Yourself

From firefighters and police officers to nurses, doctors, and EMTs, first responders are the first on the scene after an accident or emergency. The stress of constantly being in life or death situations can take a toll, so it is important that first responders carve out some time for themselves.

Study after study confirms the healing and restorative power of time spent in nature. To help first responders take a break, GoCamp offers a 15% discount on all camper van rentals.

Are you a first responder?

People count on you in some really challenging situations. And you show up for them day in and day out. Who is taking care of you? What are you doing for yourself? Let’s get you scheduled for some self-care in a camper van.

To redeem this GoCamp first responder discount, head to the Rent a Van page and enter your travel dates, select the van best suited to your vacation needs, and then get in touch with our reservation team either by phone (503-327-8512) or email ( to verify your eligibility. We’ll ask to see your id or something similar that identifies you as a first responder.

First responders can get a discount on GoCamp camper vans at any time of the year. There are no travel restrictions related to the timing or duration of the trip.

Long-Term Rentals Get Discounts Too

Are you on an extended leave? In addition to the first responder discount, we also offer discounts on long-term trips. If you are planning to travel for an extended length of time, give us a call to discuss your trip. It varies by van, but depending on the length of your trip the long-term discount might be as high as 20% off the nightly rate. Looking for inspiration? Check out Leanna Trombino’s 31-night trip.

Show Your Appreciation with a GoCamp Gift Card

Did a special nurse hold your hand in the hospital, or make you feel more comfortable during a scary situation? Whether you’ve had your own emergency or not, it’s not hard to understand and appreciate the dangerous and difficult work that first responders do. Consider saying thank you to a first responder in your life with a GoCamp gift card. You can also let them know about GoCamp’s 15% off first responder discount, and hopefully that'll motivate them to schedule some time for self-care.

Congress designated October 28th as National First Responders Day in 2017. The resolution honors the firefighters, police officers, EMTs, and all those who are first on the scene in stressful situations.
