What to Bring on a Motorhome Holiday

If you have never experienced a self-driving holiday in a state of the art motorhome, you might be slightly confused as to what you need to bring. The vehicle boasts just about every amenity you could think of, which makes it even harder to figure out what you will need in your luggage, and if you are planning to experience this kind of adventure any time soon, here are some things you should take.

Essentials

You must have your passport, credit card, driving licence, and of course, your smartphone. You might want to think about using a local SIM for the duration of your holiday, as roaming charges can soon add up. It is a good idea to prepare adequate cash in the local currency, and this can be done at any airport exchange booth. If you have arranged for Sydney campervan hire, make sure you have your driving licence at hand, and after a quick vehicle inspection, you and your family are off for the adventure of a lifetime.


Kitchen Items

Although your motorhome will come with a fully functional kitchen, there are a few items you will need to pack, namely:
  • Tea and Coffee 
  • Cooking Oil 
  • Condiments & Sauces of choice 
  • Paper Towels 
  • Ziplock Bags
Miscellaneous Items

The vehicle is equipped with a DVD and MP3 player, so bring your favourite music, and perhaps a few movies in case of rainy afternoons. Other items you might want to bring include the following:

  • Torch and Batteries 
  • Insect Repellent 
  • USB Cables and Chargers 
  • First Aid Kit
Personal Items

Of course, you will need adequate towels, and each family member should buy a pair of flip flops, as they are easy to remove and ideal for summer wear. Essential items, such as shampoo and conditioner can be bought locally, which will keep your luggage weight down, and don’t forget an adequate supply of medication, if required. Face wipes are always welcome, as they can be used to keep you fresh in any environment, and are also handy for cleaning up the odd spill.

The Right Vehicle

There is a range of quality vehicles available, with some units sleeping up to 8 people, and by dealing with an established company, you will have round the clock support. There are online companies with easy to navigate websites and within minutes, you will receive a competitive quote for your vehicle hire. If Australia is your chosen destination, you might want to consider Sydney campervan hire, and then you can tour New South Wales, one of the nicest tourist destinations. 

Local Attractions

By using an established motorhome hirer, you will reap the benefits of their local knowledge, and they can help you to plan the ideal route, with some of the places that tourists do not normally see. The route you choose could be the difference between a great and an average holiday, and if you tell the hire company about your interests, they would be able to recommend the best venues.

If you plan accordingly and remember to take the above items, you will have everything you need for the holiday of a lifetime.
