Whether you’re a first time traveller or a fully-fledged grey-nomad there are no limits here.

Campervans are suitable for those with a thirst for adventure looking to see all the hidden gems along the way.
It’s common knowledge that Australia and New Zealand can be pretty expensive places to travel. Depending on your spending habits you can make travelling in a campervan as cheap or as expensive as you like.
We find that a campervan is considerably cheaper if you are travelling in a group of two or more compared to booking public transport and paying for accommodation as you go.
In most campervans you combine all your sleeping, travelling and cooking needs into one. This helps cut costs as the overall cost is rolled into one.
If travelling solo you definitely rent a campervan although we recommend booking a bus pass that you can combine with accommodation. This way you’ll get to meet more people along the way and save a few bucks compared to renting a campervan on your own.
In short.. No. You can’t just pull up at Bondi Beach and set up camp for a few days and wave good morning to the lifeguards on shift. You should expect to check into the odd campsite here and there but with tons of free campgrounds across the country you can certainly do van-life on a budget.
We recommend that you check out a mix of campsites whilst on your travels. Check out the site Hipcamp (this is like the Airbnb of campgrounds) you can stay on peoples properties in incredible locations from as little as $6 per night. National Parks are also a great shout, there are tons of campgrounds in world-class locations for next to nothing. If you’re searching for free camps then check out wikicamps for a list of freedom camping sites, they are a great shout too.
Depending on what style of camper you choose i.e. 2-seater camper car, hi-top or motorhome you’ll see that size matters. The smaller the vehicle, the easier they are to drive. If you’re looking for something that drives like a car then we recommend a 2-seater camper car or a mid-sized hi-top. These come in both manual and automatic transmission and drive just like a normal car.
If you didn’t already know, fuel in Australia is super cheap and getting around is much cheaper than in Europe, The U.S.A & Canada.

We always recommend pre-booking as many dates as you think you’ll need to reach your destination as extending is always subject to supplier availability.
