Essential Tips for Every Campervan Trip
One of the great things about campervans is that you can see the country whilst enjoying the comforts of a home from home. If you get it right, you really can have the best of both worlds. But making the very best of a UK campervan holiday requires a few preparations and tips that can transform it from good to great. So we’ve come up with some essential tips for every campervan trip, to help you get the most from your campervan hire this year.
1 – Bring a SatNav
You might be king of the road when you know the roads, but new territory can be a completely different ball game. No one needs the hassle of getting lost in the middle of nowhere, so bringing an up-to-date SatNav with you is an essential back up plan. If you don’t own one you can hire GPS from us when you book your van!
2 – Keep it Entertaining
It’s not just families travelling with kids who need plenty of things to keep everyone occupied; you’ll find that entertainment such as CDs, games and book can provide hours of fun whatever the weather. A chance to spend time together in a way that you wouldn’t at home, don’t turn your nose up at a good game of Scrabble or cards!
3 – Play By the Rules
Avoid waking up to a loud knock at the door from the authorities and make sure that you only park overnight in designated places. Wild camping is common in Scotland, whilst Safe Nights Ireland offers campers secure and cheap overnight parking, but always check the rules before you settle in for the night.
4 – Stay Alert
Inevitably, there is a lot of driving to be done on a motorhome holiday. With so much to see and do, there’s no reason why you can’t break up the drive with stops to eat, attractions to visit and viewpoints for photos and a bit of fresh air. Why not take it in turns to do the driving, and make sure that you stay alert at all times. There’s no hurry, take your time and enjoy the ride.
5 – Shape Your Escape
As campervans are one of the best ways to get away for a few days and do something special, have a think about what you want to get out of your campervan trip before you go. Do you want a beach break with lots of walks along the coast and water sports, or a walking holiday in the beautiful rural countryside? Make these decisions before you book your campervan hire UK; Bunk Campers has pick-up points all over England, Ireland and Scotland, leaving you plenty of room to shape the perfect escape.
