Campsites, Motorhome Stopovers and Offsite-Parking in Belarus (free wild camping)
There may be campsites in Belarus in the grounds of motels/hotels. Otherwise asking hotels/restaurants if you can park in their car park in exchange for patronage is worth a try. There are no Motorhome Stopovers in Belarus.

Driving your motorhome or campervan in Belarus
A fee, varying from €20-€155, is charged against each vehicle entering Belarus. Third party insurance is required in Belarus and can be purchased at the border; this may be required even if you have obtained insurance from your UK motorhome or campervan insurance provider. There is a toll to use the E30 motorway; charges range from €2-€20 depending on the vehicle. Belarus Roads are of reasonable condition, but minor roads are often poor. Avoid night driving.
