Renting An RV For Your Honeymoon Road Trip
By Guest Author: Kathleen Terrana
For the bride and groom who have plenty of time to enjoy their honeymoon, and want to avoid crowded airports and expensive hotels and restaurants, renting a recreational vehicle is a great idea. The couple can plan their travel itinerary to include romantic hideaways, national parks, famous museums, amusement parks, and even old friends. Even with the current price of gasoline, and with the vehicles getting between 7 to 13 miles per gallon, the trip will be less expensive then airline tickets, food, and hotel bookings combined.
Motorhomes are the most common rentals and are easier to drive since they handle more like a car. The costs depend on the size and age of the vehicle, the season they want it, and how long they need it. Some companies offer rental specials. Usually a reservation deposit is taken to hold the vehicle and is non-refundable.
Along with food, luggage and personal items, the bride and groom will want to include these items: cash and coins, checks, credit cards and ATM cards, maps and road atlas, binoculars, IPod or portable radio, laptop computer, spare batteries, camera and film, books, games and magazines, and a first aid kit.
It is not necessary to make reservations for campgrounds, but they can book up quickly during long weekends, holidays and in the summer. State campgrounds offer only basic facilities but may have the most beautiful scenery. RV Parks/Campgrounds usually have a pool or lake. RV Resorts are more expensive and may have a store on site, as well as golf courses, pools, laundry facilities, and hot tubs available. An increasing number are providing Internet, cable and phone hook-ups. After months of hectic wedding planning, a honeymoon road trip is a relaxing way for the bride and groom to start their new life together.
