First-time Traveler on a Campervan Holiday
Campervan holidays offer people the opportunity to escape from the hustle and bustle of daily
life, and with the endless hiking trails, fresh air and cozy evenings spend around campfires, it’s a
great way to rediscover the simpler pleasures in life. However before you head away on your
first campervan trip, here are some of the basics you need to keep in mind.
Firstly, before you take off on your journey, you must have a plan; decide where you want to go
and what attractions you most want to see. Once you have established this, map out the route to
ensure that you have enough time each day to travel the distance you need to, whilst still
allowing time for eating and resting. Additionally, check the weather forecast and pack
accordingly, bringing plenty of raingear and an umbrella if bad weather has been predicted, or
sunscreen and light clothing if it’s expected to be hot.
When booking the Motorholme, make sure to choose one which not only suits your budget, but
also comes with the facilities you need to ensure the trip is enjoyable. If you’re parking up at a
campsite, you may be able to hire a less expensive campervan, as you can just use the site’s
cooking and shower facilities. Make sure to stock up on plenty of non-perishable foods for the
journey, particularly if you intend to base the campervan in woodland where there are no shops
or nearby restaurants.
Lastly, it’s important to expect the unexpected; things like flat tires and breakdowns tend to
happen at the most inconvenient of times, so it’s best to be prepared. Check with the rental
company regarding spare tires for the campervan before you leave, and if you need to have the
van professionally repaired, remember to keep the receipt so that you can be reimbursed by the
company on your return.
