We’ve got some of the best campervan holiday tips for first-time campervanners, to ensure you’ve got everything you need and to ease your mind when trying a campervan holiday for the first time

Have guideline of a plan

Campervan holidays can be exciting, especially if you haven’t tried it before. Getting to wake up and travel anywhere you want, with everything you need just behind you means you can travel as much or as little and you want. One of the best campervan holiday tips is to make sure you have a rough idea of what you want to do on holiday. Having an idea of where you want to go on your holiday means you can get more done as well as see more sights. Rather than spending your mornings deciding what to do each day, plan a few activities before you start your holiday. This guarantees you will have enough time to travel and see all the places you want.

This being said, you want to allow time to relax and enjoy your holiday. Even though travelling different places with such ease is an exciting holiday, driving every day can become draining, making the trip less enjoyable. You also want to be able to deviate from the plan, just in case you see something in between travelling you want to explore.

Pre-book your accommodation

Make sure you know where you’re going to stay each night.  Many places are first come, first serve and in high peak season you will struggle to get a camping area at most campsites at the last minute. Planning your destination before you start your holiday is also a great way to plan what activities you want to do in the day too. Don’t forget you can get up to 30% of campsites with Call Campervan Hire, ask when you book to see how we can help.

Food shopping

Don’t go food shopping until you’ve picked up the campervan. Campervans have limited space so you need to understand your living space. By not knowing how much room you have, you could be left with a lot of food and no room to put it.

Get used to the campervan

Before you drive off, make sure you know where everything is. Call Campervan Hire are always here to help so you can ask any questions you need before you set off. Make sure you know how to open the fuel cap and know how to plug in the electrics at campsites. When you set off, give yourself time to get used to the size of the van. Don’t feel like you have to rush to get to your next destination, take things slow and take in your surroundings.
