Keeping you safe on your motorhome holiday

blankAn Aussie road trip is the top holiday of choice right now; it’s the perfect way to explore horizons new, while still safely maintaining social distancing.  You can be confident that all our motorhomes are fastidiously cleaned in line with official COVID-19 health authority guidelines, and a new pick up/drop off procedure has been introduced to ensure appropriate social distancing, cleanliness and your safety. This all makes it super easy to take that carefree holiday, find your place in nature, feel the sand between your toes again or reconnect with family and friends on your road trip.

Where can I go?

Australia is beginning to reopen, and life is expanding beyond our local neighbourhoods.  In this fast-changing world of travel restrictions and physical distancing rules that are different in every state and territory, it’s very easy to get confused about where you can go and what you can do.   Reach out to the experts!  Your Gallivanting Oz team always have the very latest travel information at our fingertips, or for a clear and detailed rundown of the travel restrictions in place right now for all Australia’s states and territories, see our COVID-19 Travel Restrictions – Your State by State guide.

Just before we sign off, we have one last important question to ask you!

What do gratitude and a road trip have in common?

blankOne of the wonderful things to have emerged from months of lockdown is our profound appreciation of what is around us.  Our time at home has allowed us to form deeper bonds with our family, reconnect to our community, seek out small local businesses, meet our neighbours.  But how do we ensure we maintain this connection to life, once life returns to normal?

Some of the deepest thinkers throughout history have pondered this very topic.  And what did they come up with?  This.  We slow down, we surround ourselves with people that we love, and we open our eyes, minds and hearts to the world around us.   Aristotle, you should have just come straight to us mate – sounds like you need a motorhome holiday!
