Do you want to travel and see the world, or at least a part of the world where you reside? Then you might want to consider camping. Camping makes it affordable to spend time experiencing the Great Outdoors and cuts travel expenses by more than half in terms of accommodations. If you are a free spirit by nature or if you simply want to cut your holiday costs, camping is the best option.
Camping is not exactly a rustic endeavour. People today can go camping and enjoy luxury. You only have to hire a premium camping van to understand the joy and comfort that is connected with this form of transport. For example, a luxury camper hire, with deluxe features, will hold the driver and passenger in the front and offer such amenities as power steering, dual battery, 75-litre fuel tank, manual transmission and a 12/240V power supply. A Mercedes van hire features an ABS system, wastewater tank, fire extinguisher, TV and DVD player and, typically, a powerful diesel engine.
Other standard features include internal walk-through access, radio and CD player, cold and hot water supply, refrigerator and freezer, sink, gas stove and microwave. A hot and cold shower, toilet and 86-litre water tank are usually a part of a premium camper van rental package. Expect a larger touring van to be about seven metres long, two metres wide and to stand just over three metres tall. Bedding is usually available for two adults in the size of a double bed. The interior height is generally about 1.90 metres in the upgraded camper vans.
Items for Hire
Vans come with crockery and cutlery, tea towels, cooking utensils, bed sheets, pillow, bath towels and pillowcases. Additional items for hire include a camp chair, camp table, satellite phone, fan or heater and portable GPS unit.
As you can see, unless you are visiting a high-line luxury resort, you don’t receive these kinds of benefits when you travel and stay at hotel properties. You can enjoy all the comforts of home whilst travelling on the road and do so affordably. If you choose to travel in the Outback, then travelling by camper is the ideal solution. Although some campers cannot be hired for families with children up to the age of eight, you can find a campervan that will accommodate your purposes. Because of child restraint regulations, you will have to take a look at what can be hired and what cannot.
Once you determine what you can drive and what will meet your and your family’s needs, you can make your travel plans. Before you hire a camper, check on where you want to stay as you follow your devised travel itinerary. Make sure you have plenty in the way of food and water whilst taking an excursion, especially in the Outback. You might also consider travelling along the coast. You can venture where you want when you have this kind of transport.
