In the past if you wanted to get somewhere you had to take your time traveling over land or sea. There were plenty of challenges but at the same time you really had a chance to take in the sights, you can learn a lot more about a state or country from driving through it than you can by flying over it. Today many people have been moving away from these trips, often citing the cost given rising petrol costs. Cost may have dissuaded you from planning a camping trip in the past but what if there was a way to get your dream trip at a fraction of the cost using camper relocations?
First you need to know what a vehicle relocation is. It’s where companies that rent out vehicles, such as campers, motor homes and cars, rent out their vehicles for one way trips to a destination they need the vehicle delivered to. In most cases they come about because of a stock imbalance between their different locations. If they have too many cars in their Brisbane lot and not enough in Sydney they’ll arrange a car relocation Brisbane to Sydney. The driver gets a cheap trip and the company doesn’t have to pay to hire someone to do it for them.
If this sounds appealing to you then you should look for companies in your area that offer this service. You’ll find that a variety of vehicles are offered depending on the company. Just keep in mind that you have to be flexible, the options being offered will be more limited than they might be otherwise. A company might have a fleet of ten motorhomes on their lot but only two relocation motorhomes, because those are the only models that are overstocked.
Choosing your vehicle isn’t the only area where you have to be a little more flexible than usual, you also have to be a little creative about planning your route. In most cases companies will let you go wherever you want as long as you bring the camper back to it’s final location on time. Once you deliver it to the lot understand that you’ll have to find your own way back. The company you worked with may only be able to rent you vehicles at full price because they don’t need any camper relocations going back the way you came. This is why you should plan ahead and look at different companies, one company might offer a trip to your destination and another might have a return trip planned. It takes a little more planning than a normal vacation but it’s one of the best choices for saving money.
When you pay high prices to travel companies you’re often paying for convenience. If you’re clever and you do thorough research you can always cut the costs of your trip. Relocation campervans in Australia is one way to do this, looking for places to camp for little to no money is another and bringing your own food to cook rather than stopping at pricey restaurants can shave even more dollars off your budget. The savings are out there, you just have to look for them.
