During your camper rental holiday in Australia, you’ll probably spend many hours on the open road – especially if you’re heading north from Perth to Broome. If you want to avoid such a long drive, you can head South West to the wine region, but you’ll still be doing a fair bit of driving. To help making driving easier, we’ve compiled a few tips to create good balance between holiday activities and driving on your camper rental holiday.
Tip #1 – Get Active After a Long Drive
It’s a great idea to schedule a day of activity after a day of driving. Make plans to get out in the great outdoors – hiking, surfing, sight-seeing – are all great ways to get some exercise and stretch your legs. With a day of activity, you’ll be ready for more driving – or a day of rest the next day.
Tip #2 – Give Yourself Time to Rest
Your driving holiday should leave you feeling refreshed and ready to get back to work when your holiday is over. That’s why it’s so important you don’t stress yourself out by scheduling activities all day, every day. We recommend designating days with no plans. It will give you a chance to enjoy your campervan. Light a camp fire, go for a walk or read a book.
Tip #3 – Schedule adequate time for each activity.
People often try to squeeze too many activities into a single day. While it’s tempting to do as much as possible, you’ll enjoy a better holiday if you’re not too rushed. One or two activities in a single day is usually enough.
Tip #4 – Allow Extra Driving Time.
When you calculate driving distance and time, always give yourself extra time. An extra hour to complete a three or four hour trip makes the journey more enjoyable. You’ll appreciate time to make stops, take photos, stretch your legs and enjoy a snack or lunch.
