Just ask anyone, and you'll hear that a driving holiday in the great Australian outback is a once in a lifetime dream...but if you had the chance - how would you do it?
Self-drive holidays are popular with travellers who have some serious exploring in mind, so naturally many of them firstly look towards purchasing a vehicle in Australia
and then selling it afterwards. There is a perception that this is the most ideal and cost-effective solution and that selling the vehicle after the trip will be easy. Wrong! - Insurance, equipment and then return of the vehicle are the major factors that make hiring a vehicle much less complicated. Hiring a vehicle that is both your transport and accommodation in one is the realistic solution for a stress-free holiday.
Another major reason to hire a 4WD or camper is that you will learn more about the product before purchasing it. If you are thinking of buying a caravan, buying a 4WD
or buying a motorhome
, then think of trying it out for a week or two so you and family can get to know it inside and out because the long term benefits will far outweigh the initial hire costs. Lastly, hiring a 4WD or camper will give you and your family a taste of the RV lifestyle
before making a major investment.
