Dreaming of an adventure?

With international travel some way off and Australian borders reopening – it’s a great time to enjoy a summer of staycations.

Whether it’s a trip around the country or a local long weekend, a caravan gives you the freedom to holiday wherever you like – whenever you like.

So, if a caravan sounds like a good investment to you – here are a few things to know.

The affordable adventure

Research shows that the average Australian spends $4,750 on an overseas holiday.

Comparatively, a caravan can be an affordable, and reusable, travel option that won’t break the bank.

Something old or something new

New caravans can offer peace of mind with a warranty, guaranteed good condition and choice. But, if a caravan with character is more your style, some lenders like Liberty have finance options for both second-hand and private sales.

Plus, if you’re unsure how often you’ll use it, going second-hand may be an appealing way to get started. While you’ll need to check certain criteria such as roadworthiness and age – you may be able to score yourself a bargain.

Securing motor home finance

Caravans come in all shapes, sizes and budgets. So, whether you’re new to caravans or a seasoned nomad – there’s an option on the market for everyone and a loan to help you finance it.

When setting your budget, you’ll want to allow for any extra amenities you might add, and the required registration and insurance fees. Some lenders can incorporate different add-ons into your loan, which is where working with a broker can help.
