A room with a view
Which hotel room can give you such a view, without costing a fortune?
The answer is simple: Rent a motorhome. Watch incredible sunsets, fall asleep to the sound of the waves crashing against the beach, and wake up to a view like this. Simply magical!
If you visit the mountains in Australia, you will definitely enjoy the view.
Look at the stars
It is magical when darkness descends and millions of stars appear in the sky.
What do you do with TV when you can sit outside and watch the Milky Way, the star formation Southern Cross and see the progress of the star falling across the sky?
Flexibility and a sense of freedom
The motorhome not only provides flexibility that does not exist if you travel by bus, train and plane, it also gives a fantastic feeling of freedom. You can go where you want, when you want and stay as long as you want. Make sure that you got the perfect camper batteries for your vaction.
Is the weather bad? Drive on until you see the sun again. Did you find the world’s most charming and relaxing beach resort? Then the choice is easy. Stay a few extra days.
Cook yourself, or go to a restaurant. The choice is yours.
With a motorhome, you can choose when you want to cook your own food, and when you want others to cook it for you. If you are out and about and experience the surroundings and it is a long way to the nearest restaurant, you can stay anywhere and cook your own lunch.
If you want others to cook your dinner and take care of the dishes, you can drive to the nice fish restaurant you passed just before you parked for the evening.
Choose a campsite with child-friendly facilities such as a swimming pool and playground. The children will thrive and the biggest problem will be getting them to bed in the evening.
Many campsites in Australia and New Zealand are very suitable for families.

Turn off all technical equipment and discover the nature and surroundings around you. Walk in nature, go for a swim in crystal clear water or kayak along the coast. Be active and clear your mind in the same crank.
Fresh air, tranquility and beautiful nature are perfect ingredients when you want to recover from a hectic everyday life.
Transport and accommodation costs in one package

Quality time with family and friends
During a camping trip, the everyday packed calendar and time pressure are far away and you can use the time for each other. Put away the technology and play old-fashioned board games or cards. Walk, participate in fast-paced activities for the whole family or with friends, or cook together.
