Yo! My name is Greg and this is my auto blog. A warm welcome to all the readers out there on the worldwide web. I decided to start this blog because the other night when I was lying in bed unable to sleep, I suddenly realised that I am a guy with a lot to give and that now was the time to start giving it. Although I am not a professional auto person, over the years, I have picked up a lot of useful info about how to buy, sell, maintain and modify different types of automobile. I hope you enjoy my blog.
For many people, it's a trip of a lifetime. A holiday in Australia is a big undertaking and comes with a fairly sizeable budget. However, you can get much more value out of your trip if you plan carefully ahead. In truth, you don't need a bank card with an unlimited credit line to explore the country if you take advantage of some of the following tips. What should you be thinking about as you prepare?
Enjoying the Great Outdoors
Australia is so big that you will definitely need your own set of wheels or a budget car hire. Use your car to save money on accommodation by pre-booking in some of the country's best camping spots. These are usually cheaper options when it comes to accommodation, and you may be able to set up your tent in one of the national parks for just a tiny fee. These places will have all the amenities that you need, and you can live the simple life in paradise.
Be the Chef
Certainly, rustic camping sites may not be near to gourmet restaurants, but this is your chance to show your culinary skills. Pick up provisions at supermarkets when you do pass them. Every now and again you can stop in one of the great restaurants and enjoy Australia's prime seafood and fresh produce.
You can also save petrol by being frugal. For example, travel light so that your rental car is not weighed down, hitting its fuel economy. Plan your route ahead of time so that you don't meander and waste petrol needlessly.
Researching Your Entertainment
While you are getting ready for your trip, do a lot of research online to find out what activities in your chosen area are free, or sensibly priced. For example, most of the national parks allow you to hike without any charge, and all of the beaches are free and world-class, as well. A number of galleries and museums will be free to enter, and you can, of course, simply enjoy the great Outback to your heart's content.
Choosing a Rental Car Wisely
There are many different rental car companies available across the land. Do some careful research here as well, so that you find a reliable company that fits within your budget. Just remember to choose a car that will comfortably accommodate you and your party, especially as this vehicle is going to be your "central command" post for your assault on Australia!
