Compared to driving a car, there are only a few differences in driving a campervan, although, these differences all come as improvements to your holiday experience. Campervans are an incredible way to travel around Australia; they provide free accommodation, lots of space for the whole family, and will take you out just that little bit further off the beaten track so you can truly explore nature. Not only is there heaps of space inside the campervan, but you can also fit surfboards and anything else you need for a holiday, without the tight squeeze.

Travel by campervan and enjoy the classic joys of a car road trip, but with so many more benefits, and spend your time exploring Australia on a new level.

1. Freedom and flexibility

During a campervan holiday, your campervan is both your transport and accommodation. This allows you to change and make plans without the hassle of changing bookings. Choose to enjoy a planned trip following a strict itinerary, or alternatively, take it easy and follow your nose wherever it may take you. Whichever option you choose, it doesn’t matter because your accommodation is coming with you!

A campervan holiday means you have the ultimate power. If you are enjoying the scenery of one location, stay longer to soak up the view. Chasing the weatjer? Alter your trip accordingly and save the hassle of unpacking and repacking each night because you have everything you need with you! The flexibility of a campervan holiday is unmatched by a car road trip.

Not only is the whole premise of a campervan road trip straight forward, so is the hiring process! No special licenses are required to drive a campervan, so there is no need to go through any processes or loop holes to get out there and enjoy your holiday. And anyone on board with a license will be able to drive, so you can take turns and enjoy the scenery.

2. Simplicity and comfort

A campervan is your home on wheels, it is hard to get any more comfortable than this! Britz campervans offer kitchen space, dining areas, beds, and bathrooms, as well as lots of storage. Our campervan spaces are well thought out and come with extra blankets and heating so you can stay comfortable in even the coldest of seasons. Because you are travelling in your accommodation, you don’t need to worry about the stresses of check-in and out times, stay as long as you like! Adding even more comfort to the standard car road trip, with their toilets, campervans cut out the time spent making pit stops. This is especially convenient for families travelling with children!

Road tripping in a campervan takes many complications of the standard holiday out of the equation. These holidays save time spent planning and booking accommodation so you can get started on your adventure without any of the hassles. Australia is incredibly well catered to campervan travels. With campsites throughout all states, and many of them being free, there are endless options and routes for exploring Australia.

Australia is home to an amazing amount of outback adventures and journeys, and exploring by campervan will ensure you get just that little bit further off the beaten track! Download our thl Roadtrip app to make sure you can scope out all the best campsites for your adventure.

3. Budget-friendly

Renting a campervan to travel Australia essentially provides you with a whole holiday package, at one cost. Cutting out the accommodation and transportation costs – campervanning is an extremely budget-friendly and efficient way to explore new places. If campsite fees aren’t free, they are only a fraction of the cost of hotel accommodation. The kitchen spaces in our campervans are also a good way to stretch a budget, allowing you to cook and prepare meals for yourself in your home on wheels.

On top of this, our largest 6-berth campervan is roomy enough to fit 6 people. So, you only need to worry about booking one campervan for the whole family, rather than multiple cars and accommodation options.

4. One with nature

Australia has an epic and vast array of diverse scenery that is hard to find anywhere else. One day you could be waking up to an ocean view, and the next could be spent in the uniquely coloured Red Centre of the Northern Territory. Travelling in a campervan truly allows you to connect with nature, and tick off many of Australia's incredible destinations in a short amount of time. Self-contained campervans will ensure you have everything you need to immerse yourself in nature and experience the sheer beauty of Australia.

5. Nobody left behind

Our campervans range in size, from 2 berth to 6 berth. Experience some genuine quality time by spending a holiday together as a family, or group of friends. Compared to other accommodation options, a campervan makes sure everyone will experience the joys of holidaying and road-tripping together!

Campervan trips with Britz also ensure that no family member gets left out of the holiday experience. Our campervans are pet-friendly, allowing you to make sure the whole family is on board. Your furry friends can stretch their legs and let out their energy across the many destinations you visit during your adventure. Even if they're staying in a crate – there is plenty of room for them in our spacious vans.

With enough space in campervans to comfortably sleep the whole family, this type of travel is the best option for making long-lasting memories together.
