Each year, millions of tourists travel to Australia. It’s a gorgeous country with a rich culture and history. However, it’s unlikely that you would visit Australia just for the history. There’s a lot more to see and do here than just explore the museums. When you are done exploring the big cities of Australia, there are plenty of other places to see and explore, such as the Australian Outback, the Great Ocean Road, and the 12 Apostles. Of course, the many beaches of Australia are a viable attraction for tourists as well.
A large majority of tourists who visit the city generally buy prepaid packages from travel agencies. However, these packages are going to cost you a bit more, especially when it comes to inter-city travelling. If you are travelling with a group of friends, one of the best options available to you is to rent a campervan and take a road trip.
What Is a Campervan?
Campervans are slightly smaller than full-scale motorhomes. They aren’t equipped with all of the amenities that you would expect from a proper RV, but they have foldable bunk beds and lots of storage space. Campervans are perfect for a road trip. They are fuel efficient, and the rental is also quite affordable. Compared to large sized motorhomes, you don’t have to worry about paying such an exorbitant sum of money. Renting a campervan is also pretty easy. There are numerous campervan hire companies across the country through which you can book a rental. Here’s a brief guide on how to book a campervan.
Booking a Campervan
A vast majority of the tourists who visit Australia generally land in one of the big cities, such as Perth, Melbourne, or Sydney. There are numerous local and international companies in these cities that offer car rentals. Many of these companies also specialise in dealing with motorhomes and other vehicles. You can check out the different motorhomes and campervans available and choose the one that’s appropriate for you.
However, before you confirm the rental, you should compare the rates offered by two or three different companies in the city. Since there’s no regulation, different companies have the ability to charge whatever price they want, and most companies tend to increase their prices as the tourist season approaches.
Once you confirm the rental, the company will ask you to pay a small booking fee. The booking fee isn’t the whole rental, but it’s just a small amount that you have to pay so that the company can prepare the campervan for you. Once that is done, you will receive a confirmation document highlighting the details of your rental. When you land, you can simply visit the company’s garage, take possession of the campervan, and start your road trip. You can also decide on the pickup and drop-off location for the campervan, depending upon where your road trip begins and ends. That’s how simple it is!
