Skiing in Australia is a popular experience, but it can quickly become an expensive hobby with costs piling up. But did you know there’s a fun way to make your ski adventure more budget-friendly and flexible: by traveling in a campervan.
Customers hire our vans during the ski season for the cost-saving benefits campervan hire offers. Read on to find out more about campervan travel and cost-saving opportunities during the Australian ski season.
The Australian ski season is a thrilling time for winter sports enthusiasts, and traveling in a campervan can help you make the most of it. By choosing a campervan, you can eliminate the need for expensive hotel bookings and flights. In fact, camping fees are often much more budget-friendly than traditional accommodations such as resort hotels, chalets, or hostels.
Cost-Sharing and Reduced Carbon Footprint
When it comes to reaching your chosen ski destination, driving in a campervan can often be a more cost-effective option, especially if you’re traveling with a group. You can share fuel costs, tolls, and making it a budget-friendly choice. Additionally, traveling together in a campervan contributes to a lower carbon footprint, which is great for the environment.
Low cost meals
Traveling in a campervan allows you to save on food expenses by buying groceries and cooking your meals in the comfort of your van. Local food markets often offer affordable and delicious options. Cooking for yourself gives you the flexibility to plan your schedule around the best skiing conditions.
Flexibility in Your Ski Plans
By choosing a campervan over traditional accommodations, your ski plans can be much more flexible. If one ski field lacks the desired snow conditions, you can simply pack up and head to the next one. Even while en route, you can adjust your plans based on real-time snow reports and conditions in different ski areas. The key is to research campervan sites before you set off so that you can adapt your plans and ensure you experience the best skiing conditions.
Ample Storage Space
One of the standout advantages of traveling by campervan is the generous storage space available. When going skiing or snowboarding, you’ll need plenty of room for your gear, whether you’re bringing your own or hiring equipment onsite. In a campervan, there’s ample space for all your gear, making the journey more comfortable and organized.
But, will I be warm in a campervan?
You might be concerned about staying warm in a campervan during cold winter nights. Our campervans are equipped with efficient heaters that can quickly warm up the van. The walls and ceilings are lined with sheep wool for maximum insulation and thick curtains to keep the warm air in and we provide premium duvets for added comfort.
Choosing to explore the Australian ski season in a campervan offers a flexible, cost-effective, and enjoyable way to experience the thrill of skiing. With the freedom to travel, save on accommodations, and transport all your gear, you can make the most of your winter adventure while enjoying the stunning slopes Australia has to offer.
