Phew, the summer holidays are almost over and we are all back to work. Wouldn’t it be great to look forward to another road trip and plan your next holiday now?
The first and probably the most expensive part of your next road trip will be getting flights booked. It makes a lot of sense to book early. Airlines often use a flex-rate system to fill their planes. So early bookers get the best deals. Here is a list from Money Supermarket showing when airlines release their flight deals.
Top 10 Campervan and Motorhome Holiday Destinations
I have been looking at the top ten holiday destinations online, in the newspapers and from discussing the options with friends. Everybody has a different view.
Trip Advisor publishes their traveller’s choice awards based on reviews from the Trip Advisor website. The UK is tops here. It is great for visitors from outside of the UK as our pound is very cheap if you are buying it from the USA, Europe and Australia and New Zealand. There is incredibly good value in holidays here.
France is listed third on the Trip Advisor list but it would come higher on mine. Travelling through France in a motorhome is so well accepted that there are free places to camp overnight. There are thousands of campsites that are everywhere and they are of a very high standard.
Many people take their own motorhomes to France but if you are further afield or, you want to have a taster and don’t own your own, then take the train, a car or fly to one of the main towns in France and you will find that we offer rentals from these centres.
There are pick up points in the following places in France: Ajaccio, Angers, Bordeaux, Caen, Lille, Lyon, Marseille, Metz, Montpellier, Nantes, Nice, Paris, Poitiers, Rouen, Toulouse and Tours.
The vehicles in France range from small two berth campers:
to 4-berth campervans with shower and toilet on board.
The larger 6-berth motorhomes are great for family holidays.
The next country in Trip Advisor’s best places to travel is Italy. We rent out here too. In fact, you can pick up in any of these cities:
Milan, Rome, Bologna, Florence, Turin, Pomezia, Albenga, Alghero, Bari, Golfo Aranci, Grosseto, Massa Carrara, Milan Linate and Milan Malpensa, Naples, Olbia, Padova, Palermo, Parma, Pisa, Pomezia, Pordenone, Porto Torres, Reggio Calabria,Rimini, Rome, Rome Ciampino airport, Rome Fiumicino airport, San Giovanni La Punta, Santa Teresa Gallura Port, Siena-Ampugnano, Trapani, Treviso, Trieste, Turin, Venice, Verona, Vicenza.
Of course, you may be able to take your own camper to Europe, but if you are from Australia, the exchange rate is brilliant! If we want to go to Australia or New Zealand then our pound may not go as far but if we book early, then the rates are a lot cheaper. Now is the time to book for next down under summer. Or, if you don’t mind a cooler trip in the winter of New Zealand, then the rates are great.
Australia has a winterless north so book now for July and August as you won’t regret taking the kids to the Barrier Reef, or the Kimberleys or just the beach on one of Australia’s great stretches of golden sands.
If you are looking for an adventure that will get the adrenalin running then we also offer 4×4 campers for hire in Namibia, South Africa, Botswana, Sudan, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe.
This is a great way to experience the African bush. Stay in campsites and explore the game parks and really get close to the wild life. Take a good camera, and steady nerves!
If you haven’t thought of it before, the USA and Canada are second to none in providing the most amazing and spectacular scenery and experiences that will make your motorhome holiday the best. Campsites are everywhere and kitted out with bbq areas, almost as much as the Ozzies! The roads are big and wide as are the campers. RV rental is on a different scale. Loads of room and miles and miles of roads to explore and so family friendly.
