Here Are Some Things You Need To Consider for Camper Van Hire
The campervan experience in Australia is significantly different from that of Europe so even if you have enjoyed, planned and experienced countless campervan trips in Europe it is worth planning and preparing for a campervan trip in Australia.
Australia is a much larger continent, it is much more sparse and has significantly more remote areas which can catch out even the most experienced campervan user. Let’s dig deeper into the things you need to take into consideration when hiring a campervan in Australia.
Hire The Right Campervan For You and Your Family
Whilst, inevitably, cost will potentially be the most important factor when it comes to choosing a campervan to hire, it shouldn’t be the only one. You need to think about space, comfort, fuel economy, and even how easy or indeed challenging a vehicle is to drive.
Typically if you plan on exploring nature and staying out of the busy cities then a larger more luxurious campervan might be a better choice.
For anyone keen to explore the cities then smaller ones might be better in terms of maneuverability and parking. One of the key benefits of using Campervanhire.com in conjunction with Outdoorsy is that we have a virtually unlimited supply of campervans for hire with a model and budget to fit every taste.
Insurance Insurance Insurance
Another important factor to consider is insurance. The good news is that all of the vehicles at Campervanhire.com are fully insured including breakdown insurance. However you should also ensure that you have a good travel insurance policy to cover illness or loss of valuable personal items.
Ensure You Budget For Everything
Although you are on holiday and want to have a good time it is essential before travelling that you budget for everything you are likely to require. There are the essentials such as petrol or diesel, food, and entertainment expenses.
At some point you will likely want to stay on a proper camping site, which will of course entail camp fees. Then you will probably want to visit some attractions and while some of these may be free, tourist attractions tend to be expensive. However you don’t want to travel across the world and then not be able to visit an attraction due to lack of funds, so plan ahead.
The Australian marketing department has done a fantastic job of promoting a country that is constantly hot with day after day of sunshine. This unfortunately is not always the case, and many a tourist has been caught out by only bringing t-shirts and shorts.
If you fall into this trap then you may end up spending additional money on warmer clothing, so ensure that you do your research into both the area you intend to visit and the historical temperatures and weather you should expect to experience.
