Most of our customers are first time travellers in a motorhome. Motorhoming is a rewarding experience giving you the chance to pull up wherever takes your fancy and make the most of Australia’s diverse landscapes. Our traveller’s tips are sure to settle your nerves and give you confidence to prepare for and enjoy your holiday with us.
Decide What Sort of Holiday You’re Looking For
The first step is to decide what sort of holiday you want to experience in Australia. Perhaps you’re an adventurer simply looking for a place to sleep or you may be partial to the creature comforts of spacious rooms. Knowing your type of holiday will ensure that you choose the right motorhome for you.
Research Your Travel Route
Some people are happy to throw caution to the wind and hit the open road, letting destiny take them wherever it decides. But, if you’re on a more time-constrained holiday where planning is required then we recommend doing a bit of research. Access our planned itineraries
to read the most popular travel routes and read reviews or blogs from other travellers. If you know what you’re going to do during your
holiday then it won’t feel as though you rushed.
Book Your Caravan Parks
One of the most frequently asked questions we receive is, “should we book our caravan parks”. The answer is yes and no. If you’re going to be travelling during school holidays, Easter or over the summer season then the answer is YES. Avoid disappointment by locking in your powered site months before you travel. If it’s during the winter months you have the opportunity to wing it a bit more.
Buy a Backpack or Duffle Bag
Suitcases can often be heavy and difficult to store in the motorhome. If you have a backpack or duffle bag, these will be easier to fold and store in the motorhome while you’re travelling.
Watch an Audio Visual Guide
Since it’s your first time driving a motorhome you’re probably nervous about how to work all facilities on board the motorhome. Cruisin’ has developed audio visual guides for first time traveller to watch to ensure peace of mind. These guides will be with you through all stages of your holiday offering you a step by step explanation of how everything works.
Talk to Friendly Experts
If you have any questions about your upcoming holiday don’t hesitate to pick up the phone and call our friendly reservations team for advice. We’re happy to supply you with helpful information on where to park, what to bring and where to go.
Pack Your Camera
No holiday is complete without an album jam-packed with family happy snaps. Travelling with a motorhome gives you ample opportunity to snap your loved ones in some of the most scenic destinations in Australia.
Confirm Your Flights
If you’re travelling by plane it is a good idea to confirm your flights before you arrive at the depot. If your flight is delayed or early, our office can update your check in time and send you through a new confirmation. This also gives us the best opportunity to make sure your vehicle is ready when you arrive.
Pack Your Bag
Depending on where you are visiting in Australia, there are a number of things you should always pack in your bag. Bring along sun cream, weather-appropriate clothing, any medications or special needs equipment. Don’t forget you can always buy these items on holidays but it will be less stressful if you’re prepared.
Most people going on holiday are winding down from their hectic everyday lives. Before you leave take some time to wind down. Once you hit the freedom of the highway all your daily stresses will fly away! Enjoy!
