Hiring a campervan is a great way to travel around your holiday destination, however if you’re
doing it for the first time, it can be difficult to know what to pack and what to leave at home. As
a starting point, it’s usually best to check with the rental company regarding what will be
included in your campervan; some off ‘welcome packs’ which include things like toiletries and
other basic items, however this will vary depending on the Motorholme.
Unless you’re travelling in an up-scale, luxury campervan, space is likely to be at a premium, so
you will need to think creatively when it comes to packing your kitchen utensils. Most people
purchase picnic crockery, miniature kettles, and cookware, as these will fit the bill perfectly in
terms of size and functionality.
Another must-have item for a campervan holiday is insect repellent, as the majority of these
holidays will be spent in the great outdoors during the warmer months, at a time when
mosquitoes and other insects can be found in droves. Additionally, those who intend to dine al
fresco in the evenings should purchase a citronella candle, as this will help to keep insects at bay.
Particularly for those who are going on their first campervan trip, who may find the thought of
spending a night without their TV or internet access unsettling, it’s important to bring some
things for evening entertainment; a pack of cards, board games and books are all great for
whiling away a few hours at the end of the day.
One of the most essential items for any kind of campervan holiday is a first aid kit, especially for
those who are venturing off into the more wild areas of woodlands. Some basic creams and
bandages for burns, bites and cuts should do the trick.
