What’s the right vehicle for you – a guide by Travellers Autobarn

Posted by Bastian, 10 May, 2013

So – you coming to Australia and decided to buy a car – GREAT! Now comes the big decision – what do I actually want? Do I want a stationwagon, van or may be even a 4WD?


If you are on a real budget the Stationwagon is your best decision – they can be quite cheap and you can split any extra costs – petrol/camp stations – among a group of people. Stationwagons are also rather easy to fix on a decent price level. Should you decide to stay ltos of nights in a hostel it might worth considering a van – hostel accommodation costs can very quickly add up and you may find that a van – with a proper bed & kitchen – might be a lot more suitable. A 4WD is the definitely on the top price wise but you paying for the real-life outback experience – so it’s worth it.


If you are planning to travel in a van we would never recommend for more than two people Рsome vans offer space for three but it is rather tiny. A van is great to travel around Australia if you are planning to travel for a long time and know each other very well Рlong-standing friends or couples. A Wagon will allow you to travel with people you just fairly know Рpick them up at hostel Рtravel with them for a few weeks and then continue on your own or with other people you might meet on your trip. When it comes to 4WD you definitely always want to travel with a very close mate or partner as 4WD in the outback has its own little challenges and rewards Рpeople need to know what they are doing and you need to rely on them.


If you are only planning to travel for a very short time around Australia a Wagon is the best option – fairly cheap and easy to find/sell. Vans & 4Wd are definitely for more than just a few month – 4-6 month should be the minimum.


Ok, so haven’t been too positive about 4WDs BUT for the real real outback Australian experience that’s your #1 choice. Some of the best spots can only be seen via¬†a 4WD! There is nothing better than heading to a seclutet area – with no one around – at a beach or national park – sitting aorund the firework and sleeping in your 4WD (TIP: Travellers Autobarn offers 4WD with beds…) – amazing. Of course the van or stationwagon offers you similar options – very similar – but the real adrenaline kick is with a 4WD.

No matter which option you chose there is no better way to see Australia than in your own vehicle – it’s amazing. For more information about “THE RIGHT VEHICLE” please visit this link here…! For now please enjoy these great road-trip pics around Australia – HAVE FUN
