< Inspiration / Category: Featured Bloggers / Tags: Travel with Kids Trip in a Van

Budgeting when travelling is always a tough ask, especially for a family of 5. In this video, Justin of Trip in a Van answers the question: How much does it cost to travel Australia in a caravan?

What to Budget

Justin talks honestly about how much they need to budget for each week for things like:

  • Fuel
  • Accommodation
  • Bills
  • Groceries
  • Insurance
  • Mortgage
  • Attractions
  • Breakdowns and Repairs

He finds that they average out at thousand dollars a week, but knows of other similar families who work off a smaller weekly budget. It really depends on the amount of attractions you and your family want to do while on your caravanning adventure.

If you’re willing to cook in the caravan and not eat out every night, you’ll save heaps of money. Try to calculate how far you’re aiming to drive to get your fuel costs. Other factors include the make and model of your caravan. Inclusions like a washing machine, shower and toilet might cost more up front but could save you in the long term.
