After a 2020 with massive restrictions on our life and lifestyles, most Australians are not going to need much of a nudge to get away on a holiday. But now it's come from the top. The Government wants us to take a holiday at home this year. Tourism Australia has relaunched their Holiday Here This Year campaign to inspire Aussies to explore regions which have been especially hard-hit by the coronavirus.
In launching the campaign, the Managing Director of Tourism Australia, Phillipa Harrison said the campaign was to galvanize Australians in supporting others and inspiring those able, to book their next holiday.
While Federal Minister for Tourism Simon Birmingham does mention travelling by plane to these destinations to support domestic air travel, lovers of caravan touring can no doubt show support by holidaying in their own caravan.
Caravan holidays allow you the flexibility to go where you want on your own schedule. No waiting around for airport transfers and other issues. You can budget your holidays over the fixed loan term when purchasing your caravan with a cheap loan from Jade Caravan Finance. Even better!
Where to Go?
To show your support for the campaign and the initiative, plan your caravan holiday itinerary to engage with some of the destinations and activities suggested in the campaign. The campaign website includes a section for self-drive and road trip holidays. Perfect inspiration for caravan owners.
The suggestions include:
- Kakadu 6 day Family Trip to experience the outback
- Seafood Frontier Tour – embarking on a seafood safari along the amazing Eyre Peninsular in South Australia
- Discover the wine and food delights in Victoria’s High Country
- Head to Byron Bay for surfing lessons
- Take in the world heritage listed rainforest areas and reefs on the way from Cairns to Townsville by the Cooktown route.
- Adventure in the wilds of Tasmania to marvel at the rainforests, pristine coastal areas and natural wonders.
- If you’re in Perth, an interesting trip is suggested which encompasses colourful attractions including pink lakes, bright yellow moonscapes and black flowers.
All these are possible and accessible in your own caravan.
Choosing a Caravan for Your Holiday Experience
If you’re new to the caravan holiday style, then you’ll need to select the caravan to suit a number of factors: how many people to accommodate, the roads you’ll be driving on, areas you’ll be entering, the vehicle you have to tow the van, if you want to be fully self-sufficient and numerous other considerations.
Australian caravan manufacturers offer a wide range of traditional caravans, camper trailers, RVs, campervans and mobile homes to choose from. The chassis and suspension is designated for choice of road - son road, semi off road and fully off road models.
Most manufacturers have very informative and comprehensive websites which detail the specs and features of their range. Many include videos and great galleries to see all the detail. You can effectively ‘build your caravan’ online.
To assist with selecting the caravan to suit your travels, Jade provides a useful caravan finance calculator. It’s free to use and accessible on our website here. So whenever and wherever you have internet access on your device you can use our calculator.
You simply enter the amount you want borrow (usually the price of the caravan) and other data as indicated and you’ll receive a rough estimate on repayments for a loan that meets those specs.
Caravan Finance Options
Planning any type of holiday requires setting a budget. With Jade Caravan Finance, we assist with your holiday budgets well into the future with the fixed elements of our caravan loans. Most people and most caravans suit the Secured Caravan Loan.
This type of loan follows a standard loan format with the caravan used as security against the loan for the lender. The borrower pays off the loan at a set amount each month, the fixed repayments, for each month of the loan term.
With a Jade loan, your interest rate is negotiated to the cheapest level by your consultant and then it is fixed for the entire loan term. While you may be advised to regularly review your home loans, you don’t have to do that with your Jade caravan loan. The interest rate is fixed.
You can take that caravan holiday, comfortable and relaxed in the knowledge that your finances will be the same through the entire trip and beyond. With our cheap caravan loan interest rate assurances, you’ll be able to budget more for your fun tokens for experiences en route and on arrival at your destination.
Caravan holidays are a great way to experience the wonders that Australia has to offer and possibly discover some secrets that others haven’t. And, the Government wants you to holiday here. So get moving and start planning your caravan holiday by first purchasing that caravan.
