Unlike traditional guided tours, there are no hard and fast rules. You either adopt the wake up and decide where to go option with no fixed itinerary to follow or plan a fixed caravan park stay itinerary. In this case you pre book the caravan parks for the nights and go and do whatever you like during the day and only come back in the evening or at night to stay and use the facilities of the caravan park.

I saved a lot of money by having both accommodation and vehicle hire in one package. On top of that, I saved money on meals by shopping in supermarkets and cooking them at the campervan parks rather than eating out in restaurants every night. At nice locations along my journey, I just pull over my campervan by a river or lakeside or even by the side of the road and have my lunch, tea or coffee. Oh how wonderful...
