An increasing number of people are choosing to take a motorhome holiday for the first time. It’s a fantastic choice! I have been on RV holidays in both Canada and the USA, let me tell you that both experiences will live long in my memory because they were so much fun.
Heading out in an RV gives you so much freedom and it also gives you a real sense of adventure. There’s no guide, no bus schedule to stick to, it’s all on you and you can do whatever you like! Before you go ahead and book your rental it is important to think about what you need, I am sure that if you are like me you will have lots of questions that need to be answered.
Here are some great tips to consider before you make any decisions, I wish I knew these tips before I booked my first RV holiday in Canada:
Choose the right motorhome
Each vehicle is designed differently, the layout is different and also the number of berths varies. If you’re planning to take a long trip then it is always a good idea to get a motorhome that is spacious – for example if you are two adults then consider getting an RV that can sleep 4, this means you don’t have to make your bed everyday! Speaking to the rental company will give you much more of an idea about what is on offer. Don’t be afraid to ask as many questions as possible.
What is included in the price of your rental?
This will vary between different rental offers, all come with various benefits. At first glance some offers may seem cheap but you need to see what is included – tax, deposits, fuel in the tank and many other considerations. So take your time to look at any hidden fees that may be added on to your rental.
What insurance do I need?
The simple answer is YES! Of course I always advise people to have travel insurance, you never know when you will need it. Then you will also need to choose what type of insurance you want to take out on your motorhome, you will need to choose one. The most expensive option is not always the best for everyone, so read thoroughly through all of the options before making an informed decision.
