The sheer size of the United States makes for a challenging expedition if you want to be able to experience more than just a single location, and there is no better way to do that than renting an RV van. A recreational vehicle is designed to sleep up to 4 people using two double beds, one inside the central area of the vehicle, and one that pops up from the roof, allowing you to literally sleep under the stars.
Assuming you have already decided to try a self-driving holiday, the next step is vehicle selection, and there are affordable rental RV vans that will suit your needs perfectly. Of course, you will need to select a route, with perhaps Los Angeles or San Francisco as a starting point, and once you have selected your vehicle, a secure online payment confirms the booking and the RV will be waiting for you at the airport.
No Costly Hotel Bills
The larger part of any holiday is usually the accommodation costs, but with an RV, your accommodation is also your vehicle, and the extra money will sure come in handy. Think of how much a family of four can save if they holiday for 3 weeks, and the savings could extend your holiday for an extra week. There are always special deals to be had, especially with rental RV vans, and if you plan to go outside of the high season, prices will be even lower.
Choose Where you Stop
Driving your own RV van allows you complete freedom with your route choices, and if you don’t like a particular location, just start the engine and look for pastures new. Busy schedules do not belong on a self-driving holiday, as you are the boss and can stop for as long as it pleases you.
California is known as the Sunshine State for good reason, and with a mild climate, camping is very popular, so there will be no shortage of quality campsites to spend the night. Even with all the facilities, your vehicle is equipped with water storage, dual batteries, a fridge, and cooking facilities, which means you can free camp wherever it is permitted.
There is a whole range of additional accessories that you might require, such as baby seats, a personal bedding set and extra kitchen utensils if needed. You can even hire a generator if you plan on spending time in the wilderness, and with GPS, you won’t have to worry about getting lost.
Millions of people prefer this type of holiday as it gives you an unprecedented level of control, and with no accommodation costs to pay, it is also very affordable. The adventure side of the holiday never fails to impress and many families decide to repeat the adventure the following year, as they enjoyed it so much. The only way to find out if this type of holiday is for you is to try it, and with online bookings, you can soon be on your way.
