How to Save when Booking an RV

Thursday, October 10th, 2019

Keeping costs down during your vacation can be important. We’ve put together some great cost saving tips to make your next road trip one for the books. Get a discount RV rental because renting an RV doesn’t have to break the bank.

When to book:
Most special’s for discount RV’s happen the first few months of the year. Between January and March are the best time’s to book one way rentals and get the best early booking discounts.

When to travel:
High season starts from about mid June to mid September. If you can avoid traveling during this time you can get a cheaper RV rental.

Size of RV:
When choosing which RV to book consider travelling in a smaller RV. Most of your time will be spent driving or exploring the area you are visiting, not sitting in the RV. A smaller RV will also save you gas. Check out some tips for maximizing RV gas mileage.

Bring your own meals:
Most RV’s come equipped with a kitchen. Bring your own meals to cook so you save money on eating at restaurants. Plus we always think that camp food is some of the best food out there.

Research parks or campgrounds:
It’s always a great idea to research the parks and campgrounds you plan to attend. Read reviews, check on costs, and how far the experiences you want to see are from where you will be parking. A little pre-planning goes a long way when you are trying to budget your RV rental road trip.

And last but not least. Remember to have fun! Enjoy the sights, experience the most, and the cost of your RV will feel discounted because it’ll be worth the experience.

The classic Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk, a half-mile long beachfront amusement park is filled with 34 rides and numerous arcades. The town’s vibe is funky and don’t forget to stop by the original Santa Cruz skateboard shop for a piece of history.

Carmel and Big Sur

The Final Stretch to LA
Start the day off right with a walk along Butterfly Beach. To ease back into the bustling city life, take the long route and drive through Malibu and Santa Monica. The Santa Monica Pier is a great stop with the pier’s ferris wheel and the end of the iconic Route 66.
