With the holidays just around the corner, you may be wondering how you can travel on a budget while still enjoying the comfort that comes from traveling in a camper van hire. After all, you shouldn’t have to put off your road trip throughout a beautiful country such as New Zealand due to budget constraints.
There are plenty of budget options available in New Zealand that ensure you have enough money to enjoy your trip without having to stress about what you’re spending it on. Many budget campers offer quality and dependability for your trip without charging you an arm and a leg.
A great way to save money and still travel New Zealand comfortably is to rent a Hippie Camper, a budget camper van rental. Here’s why:
1. It costs less to rent a cozier vehicle.
Hippie Campers vans are comfortable vehicles, providing you the essentials for a safe, enjoyable road trip. These vehicles are affordable and provide budget-conscious travelers with the basics such as a comfortable bed, a table, and even a gas cooker and fridge. Best of all, you can save your money to spend experiences and fun activities on your road trip.
2. Certain Hippie Camper options require much less petrol than others.
Okay, we understand – petrol expenses can eat up on your budget. The key here is to choose a vehicle that perfectly fits your needs. How many people are you travelling with? If you’re travelling alone, or with a partner choosing a smaller van that consumes less petrol can help give you that wiggle room, budget-wise. Luckily, you can choose a Hippie camper that provide you with the basics you need for road trip comfort while allowing you to stay within your budget.
3. Hippie Camper often offers specials and discounts on rentals.
Who would say no to great deals and discounts on camper rentals? We know we won’t. Hippie Campers have good rentals for a great price, often offering specials or discounts to make your New Zealand road trip a memorable one, without breaking the bank.
4. With a smaller camper, you can typically find lower-priced campgrounds.
One of the best things about travelling in cozier vehicles is you get to visit and stay in smaller, more intimate campgrounds. Whether you stay at a DOC site or go freedom camping (in a legal spot), it will most likely be more affordable to travel in a smaller yet comfortable camper van.
Taking a road trip in a beautiful country and visiting some of the world’s most sought-after destinations will be the best decision that you will ever make. Of course, you will need to prepare your budget and make sure that you have all the bases covered. You will need to make sure to include food, activities, tours, and camping fees on your list of expenses.
We have said this before and we will say it again: budget constraints should never stop you from going on that road trip of a lifetime. Fortunately, Hippie Campers provides the comfort and safety you need on your travels, at rental prices you can easily afford.
