If you love the idea of going in a road trip in a campervan but you have no idea where you want to go to, then there are plenty of different parts of the world you can visit. Australia is often the most popular place to head to if you want to go on a road trip but New Zealand is also popular, as is the US and even the UK. It’s easy to see what makes Australia such a popular choice with anyone wanting to rent a campervan, as it is home to lots of open road systems that are perfect for taking a road trip.
You can opt to rent a car but by far the easiest and most enjoyable way to travel around is in a campervan. You can hire a campervan in Australia with ease and due to the amount of competition there is; it is fairly easy to get hold of a good deal when you shop around and compare rates.
Here is a rundown of some of the best places to explore in a motorhome:
- New Zealand
- The USA
- The UK
- South Africa
You might want to choose to go to a country where they drive on the same side of the road that you are used to but if you are feeling adventurous and you are happy to drive on the opposite side of the road, then you might want to spend a few days driving something smaller like a car before you get behind the wheel of a large campervan.
Book in Advance
You can organise your rental vehicle in advance to ensure that you get the one that you want and this is also the best way to get hold of a cheap deal. It is important to do some research into the best makes and models, so that you know what the MPG will be and you should also look into the reliability. Use the internet to conduct some online research and to make your booking and often the further in advance you make your booking, the better the deal will be.
If you have decided to go and explore Australia from behind the wheel of a campervan, then you might want to check out some of the following roads:
- The Great Ocean Road in Victoria
- Red Centre Way in the Northern Territory
- The Nullarbor
- The Outback in Queensland
- Gibb River Road

You can also take a drive from Cairns to Cape Tribulation, Broome to Perth, Sydney to Jervis Bay, Hobart to Launceston or go from Cape Leveque to Broome and all of these drives are perfect to enjoy in a campervan as there are lots of places where you can stop along the way and park up for the night.
