The food prices are determined by how and what you decide to cook or if you will venture into restaurants along the way to your destination.

Determining the right size of campervan for you

When deciding on what type of campervan is right for your needs first you must list the number of people in your party. Since children take up less space than adults, that also factors into just what size of campervan you need.

Also, look at your budget and where you plan to travel too. If you plan on parking at a holiday park with full amenities including showers and restrooms, then why pay for them twice when renting a campervan.

Providing your own bedding, cooking utensils, child safety seats and bicycles can also help lower the cost of your rental.

Another way to get a good deal is to have your holiday between 21 and 30 days in length since most rental agencies offer a discount for renting this time length. 

One last note, the older and smaller the campervan, the lower the cost of renting it will be.
