Why a road trip is the perfect family getaway

Hassle-free RV holidays offer fun and flexibility.

Think back to your favourite family holiday as a child. Chances are it would include memories of the family car packed to the brim, a well-worn cassette tape played on repeat and lots of road trip snacks. Road trips evoke nostalgia and are a perfect way to make family memories to last a lifetime. 

Nothing beats exploring the road less travelled and discovering new places together. The beauty of an RV (recreational vehicle) holiday is you can park them almost anywhere. Find a hidden watering hole that the kids just don’t want to leave or decide to extend your trip to that small country town and get to know the locals – you have the flexibility to stay and play where you like. 

An RV holiday is a fuss-free holiday. You don’t have to worry about buying a family-sized tent you’ll have to put up (and take down in the rain), portable toilet or camping supplies. Your motorhome will be kitted out with all the essentials you’ll need. All you will need to do is bring your family’s favourite holiday games, colouring books, iPad’s and a trusty pack of cards.

Road trips give you the chance to not only have fun but can double as a great educational opportunity. Learn about native forests while you hike through them, point out wildlife that you’ve never seen before or get to mix with new people from different walks of life and see how they live – the world is your classroom.

Living and travelling in a motorhome is a sure-fire way to grow closer as a family. Road trips encourage conversation and story sharing which translates into a deeper connection and closer bond, so, what are you waiting for?
