 Top Tips for Solo Travelling - Campervan

For your first solo campervan trip it’s a good idea to go somewhere not too far from home or somewhere that you are familiar with. This will help you feel a lot more comfortable and you’ll be able to properly relax. However, if you’re not planning on staying close to home then be sure to share your day to day plans with someone for the time you’re away (just in case).

Putting safety precautions in place is a great way to keep out of unexpected danger, here are some examples:

  • Regularly check over your campervan during your trip to make sure the tyres, oil and coolant are all topped up.
  • Make sure you have a place to stay each night, book before you go to avoid fully booked campervan parks. Our vans are part of The Camping and Caravanning Club’s privilege scheme, giving you up to 30% off at their sites throughout the UK!
  • Having plenty of food and water on board is essential in case you find yourself in a remote location with not many shops about. Our vans have the capacity to hold up to 60L of fresh water and have a fridge powered by a battery than can last up to 48 hours without charge.
  • To maybe state the obvious, lock up and close all windows at night and when you’re not close by.

County’s campervans all come with Satellite Navigation loaded on to an SD card, USB ports and 12V plugs so you don’t need to worry about bringing your own map and can keep your phone charged to keep in touch with the person you’re sharing your itinerary with.                                                                                    

 

Unlike camping there’s a few things you won’t need. Always check what your campervan hire specifically comes with to avoid both over and under packing. Click here to find out what our campervan comes stocked with.

 

Don’t Forget the Essentials

 Make the most of your trip by getting everything you need at the start. This will save trips out to pick up things you’ve forgotten. The most forgotten about items tend to be baby wipes, shampoo, a decent knife, a cutting board, sandwich bags or containers for leftovers, bug spray, and sun cream.

 

Pets

At County we even have your pets catered for by providing, a dog bowl, a dog towel, waste bags, treats, a toy and lint roller.

 

Stay safe and enjoy your travels!
