For many families, air beds are the ideal solution for spontaneously offering friends or family a place to sleep. But when camping, you should not do without an air bed!
We have not only written a checklist with the most important criteria for air beds, but also compiled many product recommendations for you.
- There are different sizes available (e.g. single beds or king size). These range from 90cm up to 200cm
- Meanwhile, some manufacturers have even developed a self-inflating variant
- The construction and the comfort while sleeping are decisive factors for the comfort
- They are especially popular with campers because of their comfort compared to insulated mats
- To ensure a long use , it is recommended to pay attention to good workmanship. In addition, an integrated pump is an advantage.
- The higher the load capacity, the more versatile the bed can be used (with more or less guests)
- A light flocking of the lying surface is also a quality indicator
- Air beds are variable in use (guests, camping, pet bed, …)
- Easy to assemble and disassemble. Inflation takes about 5 minutes for a 2-person bed.
- Due to the air inside, the bed is usually more comfortable than e.g. sleeping mats
- Space-saving (are usually folded or rolled up) especially compared to guest beds. Even the king size models take up only slightly more space compared to the smaller models

FAQ For Airbeds
Air beds sometimes seem as if they lose air. Especially newly chewed variants must first be “acclimated” , like shoes that you must first break in. The material expands at the beginning, which gives a softer impression . If the bed is in permanent use, it will also become softer over time. If necessary, simply pump it up briefly. For variants with an integrated pump, this is not really a hassle.
On the contrary, air beds (if they are high quality!) can actually do your back some good. Due to the air filling, there are no pressure points when lying down and nothing gets in the way of relaxation,
Air beds come in different price ranges. The cost depends on both the size and the equipment of the air bed (height, integrated pump, lying surface, …). There are cheap variants around 20 EUR, but also air beds around 50 EUR, 70 EUR or around 100 EUR. If you want to use the bed often and/or longer, you can invest in a high-quality bed.
Which air bed is best depends on individual needs. In addition to size and comfort, many people also consider the effort involved, i.e. whether the bed needs to be manually inflated or has an integrated pump. For example, the Active Era Premium Airbed from our product recommendations is a good choice in king size.
