Travel Essentials to Carry on a Road Trip in Australia in The New Normal

Australia, the most beautiful island in the world,  is a place to enjoy beaches and parks. Its signature cities like Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, and Brisbane are the best and most visited tourist locations. Do you know all the attractions offered by Australia can be easily visited by a hiring campervan? You can be having Sunshine Coast adventures one day, be in Byron Bay the next and then head on down to Sydney for your final destination all in the comfort of your campervan. And, this Autumn is the best season to make the most of it by planning a perfect road trip to Sydney.

With lockdown gradually lifting in most parts of the country and international travel still being “off-limits”, the best plan to curb your travel bug in the coming Autumn is to hire a campervan in Sydney from the best campervan providers like Aussie Campervans, Mauli, and others. All you need to do is select the best and set out on a long-awaited adventure. Campervan trips and workstations are gaining popularity ever since the lockdown lifted and if you too are planning one with your family or friends here is a “ list of travel essentials that you shouldn’t miss packing for your next road trip”.

Things to pack for your post lockdown campervan road trip:

Masks & PPE kits:

In the new normal, stepping out of the house without a mask is almost like stepping out of the house without your phone or wallet. It can prove hazardous! So, when you leave for a road trip ‘masks’ are a must. Chances of forgetting your masks in restaurants and diners are or losing them on the way are quite high, hence it is advisable to carry an extra packet of disposable masks along with your regular N-95s. Also, carry PPE kits for everyone, just in-case they are mandatory at some destinations that are on your itinerary.

Disinfectants & Sanitizers:

Even though the COVID cases are getting under control, saying goodbye to sanitizers is not something that you can expect in the near future. And, when you are going on a road trip, apart from the regular hand sanitizer, it is recommended to also carry a car-sanitizing kit with you with which you can well sanitize your campervan.

Another essential you shouldn’t miss out on is ‘disinfectant wipes’. Trust us they are a lifesaver when you have to dine in a crowded restaurant or use a public washroom!

First Aid Kit:

This one kind of goes without saying, Covid or no Covid, a first aid kit is always mandatory when you are going for a road trip. The key essentials to include in your first aid kit are:- sanitizers, disinfectant wipes, and sprays, sunscreen, antiseptic creams, mosquito repellents, antibiotics, painkillers, tampons, band-aids, bandages, sunglasses/safety glasses, and a snake/insect bite kit. And, in the times of Covid, ‘Multivitamins’ are also a ‘must-have’ in your first aid kit. Since your diet on a road trip changes significantly, taking multivitamin tablets and supplements ensures that you don’t miss out on your dose of healthy vitamins and minerals.

Covered Clothes:

Yeah yeah, we hear you! Wearing full-sleeved and long clothes in Australia can be a nightmare given the everlasting summers, but hey, better safe than sorry, right? In normal times it is advised to pack light and not carry too many long and heavy clothes but in the current situation, covering yourself as much as possible is the right thing to do. Wearing long clothes will cover most parts of your body and reduce the chances of getting in contact with infected surfaces. And, they also protect you from insect and mosquito bites if you are camping in the jungle.

Disposable Cutlery:

When you hire a campervan in Sydney with Aussie Campervans, our versatile vehicles are already equipped with microwave, cooking utensils, crockery, and cutlery. But, apart from our in-house cutlery, it is also a good idea for you to carry disposable cutlery. You will thank us later when they turn out to be life-savers while you take pit stops at gas stations and roadside trucks.

(Added Bonus:- Disposable Cutlery = Fewer dishes to wash! And, who doesn’t like that? )

Food & Beverages:

We know stopping on famous street-food joints along the way and gobbling on the lip-smacking delicacies is the first checkbox on most itineraries. So, all the foodies out there, we are sorry to break your heart, but in the current scenario, sticking to the basics and cooking your food is the safest option. Carry lots of home-cooked food, stock up on frozen packets, and don’t forget to carry enough fresh water along. Our dynamic vehicles are furnished with amenities like microwaves and refrigerators, hence storing and cooking food won’t be a hassle.
