🤑How can you save money on your LAP OF OZ???


📝Sign up to Loyalty clubs with the caravan park chains, they are definitely worth it. 

📲Book online where you can, most places give discounts.

🎟Travel Saver cards through your insurance companies, if you take the time to research what's available they can save you a lot of money. 

ℹ️Tourist info centres - get the brochures for the local area your in and they have discount coupons for tours and attractions. 

🏕FREE CAMP where you can, but don't compromise the enjoyment of your trip just to save a few bucks. Caravan parks have some prime real estate around the country and think of how far you've driven to get to there?? It'll cost you a lot more than a nights accommodation to get back there if you skip it being a tight arse!! 🤪


➡️If you have the room, buy in bulk, cook in bulk and freeze meals. It's cheaper and easier than stocking up on the run. 

🐂Buy meat in bulk from local butchers on your way around, a whole rump can be as little as $12 a kilo if you buy it whole. If you buy just a few pieces in Woolies its around $25/kg. Get the butcher to cut it up for you and freeze it in meal size portions.

🏪Stock up at the big chain supermarkets. Plan your major grocery shops in bigger town centres before you head remote/outback - this can save you hundreds. 

**Save on Fuel**

👉Keep your weights down, travel as light as you can. Don't travel with full water tanks unless your going off grid(1 litre of water = 1kg) 
👉Get your tyre pressures right, less rolling resistance means better fuel economy.
👉Find an economical cruising speed - use your vehicles computer info to find out what speed is best for your fuel consumption & stick to it. 
👉Buy Good fuel - Quality fuel will give you better fuel economy, we always use BP and recommend it to everyone.
