Getting Around the Best of Australia, Backpacker Style
Australia, as everybody knows, is a HUGE country. It will take quite some time to get around the country with Australia being roughly seven million square kilometers. But despite the massive size, it’s easy to get around – believe it or not.
It’s no doubt some travelers dare to explore the whole country considering the significant distances. After all, people go this far because getting around Australia is considered as one of the greatest adventures of all time.
Anyway, there is simply an excessive amount of distance to cover that can lead to high transportation expenses. And many say that it is often difficult to travel around Australia on a budget. Yes, everyone is informed that Australia is an expensive place to enjoy. However, there are lots of ways to trim down the expenses of your travel. And one of these is the backpacker style.
This is possibly the cheapest means to get around Australia, especially if you’re staying in the big Oz for a while. One practical way is to just pick a cheap car hire. You can rent and share the vehicle as you travel across the country.
Find a Few Other Travelers If You Really Want to Save Money
If you’re staying in a hostel, check the bulletin board for fellow travelers who likes to join a classic Oz road trip. It’s easy to share a ride in Australia – you’ll always find someone to tag along.
This will let you share the expenses with others, thus making it a lot cheaper than any other ways to travel around Australia. Besides, it’s always fun to make new friends. For your vehicle option, a campervan or RV is a good choice since you can sleep on it at the same time. You’ll find companies providing car rentals at major city locations or airports.
