So many of us have great memories of camping and caravan holidays as kids. If you are keeping those memories alive and making new one then the following information could help.
|Where to stay|
The choices of where to stay when you’re camping or caravanning are almost endless. The Australian landscape is littered with caravan parks of all description, from council owned and operated facilities to privately operated parks that at times are virtual resorts.
And if you’re set up with a generator or solar power you mightn’t even need to stay in a park as there are plenty of sites which allow free camping throughout the country.
Some things to consider:
Your first destination should be Tourism Australia. It has links to the local tourism boards in each state or territory and a heap of information to help you stay on the road safely and enjoy your break.
|How to travel|
This comes down to more than just a choice of tent, camper, caravan or motor home. It will depend on your budget, your preferred way to travel and where you want to go. You may like to visit the Caravan and Camping show in your state to check out the latest and greatest. Suffice to say, these days “roughing it” isn’t quite what Burke and Wills faced.
We won’t examine the pros and cons of each option but here are some things to consider:
Why not try before you buy. Rent your preferred mode of accommodation and see how you like it.
|How we can help|
If you’re planning to do a lap of this great country, or take a regular short trip then we can help you stay organized and keep that home away from home secure.
An A-Z Review® - if you’re about to head away you may benefit from a conversation with one of our personal bankers. This could help ensure you have the right arrangements in place while you are away and make sure things are also in order back home. Request an A-Z Review® at your nearest ANZ branch.
ANZ Internet Banking – allows you to manage your banking 24/7 wherever you can get online.
Credit cards - A flexible payment option while you're travelling. Choose from a range of rewards credit cards and you could earn points on purchases including travel and accommodation. Compare ANZ Credit Cards.
Savings solutions – you may need to save for your holiday. We have savings accounts that could suit the way you bank:
ANZ Term Deposits – you may want to place some money in a term deposit to deliver income while you are on the road. The minimum balance is $5,0005 and we have terms from three months to five years. Find out more about ANZ Term Deposits.
Car finance - it can take a long time to find the right car. How much petrol it consumes, how well it handles and even how good it looks – there’s so much to weigh up. Once you have found ‘the one’ you’ll want to get the finances out of the way and get behind the wheel as soon as possible. That’s where ANZ comes in. With a choice of secured and unsecured loans, we can tailor a package that suits your needs. Our approval process is fast and easy and that means you’ll be out on the road sooner.
