Austrailian Road Trips

Australia Perth

Australia is a great location for road trips. The sheer size of the place means there are seemingly endless opportunities to get on the open road and drive for hours. One of the great ways to get to know Australia by road is to hire a campervan. There is a wide range of campervans to choose from. A simple campervan will fit two adults and a child. There will be space for all three up front while driving. The van will typically include a sleeping/sitting area in the back. During the day this acts as a sofa and table area. At night time it can be converted in to a double bed. There is also a smaller child size bed available above this which can be pulled out like a bunk bed. In addition, there will be a microwave, two hob gas cooker, fridge and storage space. For this you should expect to pay around 45 australian dollars per night. One hidden cost to take in to consideration when hiring a camper van is insurance. In Australia you will either have to place a credit card deposit of several thousand dollars, which will be lost in case of serious accident, or pay a steep daily insurance fee. I’ve found the insurance fee can almost double the cost of Campervan Road Trips in Australia . The last time I travelled daily insurance was forty dollars a day which was only five dollars less than the cost of the van hire. To avoid this I had to stump up a steep seven thousand dollar deposit. It certainly makes sure you drive carefully when you know that an accident will cost you a large charge to your credit card. Once you have picked up your camper van you will be free to explore the Australian countryside. If you are leaving from Sydney it is a good idea to head up the coast towards Queensland. If you are heading up towards Cairns you can expect the trip to last around seven days if you travel each day and only stay a night at each campsite. On your way there are three main types of campsite to stop at. Caravan parks are the most expensive but they have full amenities and are often in great locations. Expect to budget around 30-45 dollars a night for two adults. Another option is to stay in a national park. These are much cheaper at around five dollars per adult. The scenery is usually fabulous however amenities are often limited. So the campsites will often have toilets and water but no showers or electrical power. Finally the cheapest way to travel is to stay in free campsites. These are often basic locations without any amenities. Be very careful that any site you are staying at does allow over night camping because if you get caught in the wrong place there can be a fine of several hundred dollars. Australia is a great place to take a road trip and a campervan is the ultimate way to experience the country.

Road Trip Tool for GPS

I just recently bought the OSO Space Mount from the Osomount. They are a new company so I was a little spectacle about using them but I have had the product for a month now and I must say that I am loving it. The Oso Space Mount is a product that is perfect to take on a road trip. It is a product that converts your phone into a GPS. All you have to do is by it and it has a very strong clip function that makes holding onto your phone very secure so you do not have to worry about it dropping and then there is a suction cup attached making ti easy to see the GPS while driving. It is awesome I use to always have to have the phone in my pocket and try to follow the directions with acting like I was on the phone for police would not pull me over. This device solved that problem it is wonderful. I would recommend getting the OSO Space Mount before buying a GPS. It is just faster and you save a lot of money.

This product is great if you are going on a road trip because you do not have to rent a car with a GPS which is an additional fee or you do not have to bring a map with you. You are probably going to be charging on your console anyway so you do not have to worry about your phone dieing. I would recommend this product to all my friends for a road trip.

 

I am excited to check out some of their other products. If you would like to learn more information check out Osomount.

If you Like Speed!

Drive as fast as you want in Germany

Road trips are always fun but it is normally not for the speed demons. Most trips are for people who likes to take their time and enjoy their way around the world and see new amazing things. However there is only one place left in the world where you can still do both and this is Munich Germany. On parts of the Autobahn you can speed as fast as you want.

They have speed limit signs of 120km an hour but if there is a line through it that means that you can go as fast as you want but the suggested speed is 120 km. Going there is a blast the drivers there are use to the speed and cars will move out of your way if there is space on the road. It is incredible. Make sure that you do not go during winter though because they do slow down the speed limit if there is bad weather. So fly into Munich, Germany and take a road trip to Austriafor you can go 100 of miles with no speed limit. It is an incredible feeling.

Your dreams will come true in the land of beer on this road trip. Just make sure that you do not take advantage of the two German cultures at once that is illegal there just like how it is illegal here.
