There’s so much to see and do in Australia and we believe the best way to experience it all is by travelling in a caravan. Whether you decide to buy a caravan, camper or motorhome you are guaranteed a holiday you’ll absolutely love. There are many reasons we believe caravan holidays are the best, so we wanted to share our top 7 reasons here.
EXPERIENCE FREEDOM & FLEXIBILITY
The freedom you experience when travelling with no schedules and timeframes is priceless. There’s no chance of missing that plane or waiting in airports after cancelled flights. A self-drive holiday allows you to set your own schedule and take each day as it comes. Loving a particular location? Then why not stay longer! You have the freedom to change your plans and destinations without the worry of cancellation fees.
DISCONNECT FROM LIFE AND RECONNECT WITH FAMILY AND FRIENDS
Life can be crazy these days and caravan holidays are a chance to experience a complete change of pace from everyday life. Without the usual daily distractions it’s a great time to reconnect with friends and family. There’s nothing better than taking each day as it comes, turning off the electronics, slowing down and enjoying your surroundings.
NO NEED TO LEAVE YOUR FURRY FRIEND AT HOME
People are often reluctant to head away in a caravan because they don’t want to leave their furry friend at home. With so many pet friendly accommodation choices these days there’s no need for them to miss out. Taking the family pet on holiday is essential for many and that’s no exception for us. We don’t like leaving home without our dog Wookie and holidaying in our caravan means he can tag along.
ENJOY YOUR PERSONAL SPACE AND HOME COMFORTS
There’s something nice about taking a road trip with all the creature comforts on board. Sleeping in your own bed with your favourite bedding is the best! A caravan or motorhome becomes your home away home so you can pack your much loved comforts. This is ideal for families with children, as you can take along all the bits and pieces needed to keep them happy.
Experience all that Australia has to offer. With so many beautiful locations you’ll find some of the greatest experiences come from the places you discover on your own. Many of the best sites are found off the beaten track and depending on your choice of RV you have the freedom to explore these splendid destinations.
Exploring your own state is just as rewarding as longer trips around Australia. Weekend getaways and short trips in your RV is the ideal way to explore your own backyard.
JOIN THE CARAVAN COMMUNITY
It’s the perfect way to make new friends and join the caravan community! Caravanners are most often a friendly bunch that loves to socialise and share stories. Staying in caravan parks and campsites will allow you to meet new people, make new friends and share experiences.
After the initial purchase of your caravan, camper or motorhome, holidays will be excellent value for money. With self-drive holidays there’s no need to pay for expensive transport or accommodation fees and you can cater your own meals without having to dine out daily. Family holidays are more affordable as there are loads of free activities to keep the kids entertained. Plus your new RV is an asset and can be sold if no longer needed.
Feeling inspired? These are just a few reasons why a caravan holiday is an excellent choice. The list of benefits is endless and there’s no doubt once you start exploring new places and meeting new people you’ll be hooked too.
