5 of the world's most epic motorhome road trips

Pack your bags and hit the road – and save on accommodation along the way – these five incredible journeys are best seen by motorhome. And now, thanks to Auto Europe, you can now save up to 60%* when you book a journey by RV (recreational vehicle).

1. IRELAND

The world’s longest coastal route, Ireland’s Wild Atlantic Way runs 2,500km up the Western Coast through nine counties and packs a heavy punch in a relatively-short distance. 

Take a few weeks to experience the best of what the Emerald Isle has to offer when it comes to history, natural wonders and cultural experiences, including the Cliffs of Moher, Skellig Michael, Mizen Head, Poulnabrone dolmen, Slea Head Drive, and Aran Islands. 

Hike and surf to your heart’s content, sampling the catches of the seas and local brews at neighbourhood pubs along the way.

Roundtrip road trips from Dublin

Save 20%* with Auto Europe between now and 31 December 2019 when you book and pay before 30 November 2018 with your Sure Travel agent. Additional special offers for long-term rentals. 

*Conditions: valid for all vehicle types; new bookings only. Pick-ups and drop-offs from Dublin only. Offers are subject to change without notice and cannot be combined with other offers.

2. NEW ZEALAND

New Zealand crams a symphony of drama into a small geographical area. It’s easily explorable by motorhome or camper van, with free camping anywhere off the public highway that’s at least 15km from nearby large towns.

Take on the southern island for at least a week, starting at Queenstown. At every turn, you’ll be confronted with beaches, mountain peaks, fiords and glacier fields. Highlights include Milford Sound, Abel Tasman National Park, Lake Tekapo, Kaikoura, and the Punakaiki Pancake Rocks.

Drive your way across the Southern Island

Save up to 50%* of the daily rate when driving between 10 September and 4 November 2018 and pay no additional fees when driving one way from Queenstown to Christchurch or Auckland. Click here to take a virtual tour of one of the camper vans available.

3. AUSTRALIA

Not only is a motorhome road trip through Australia the only true way to experience remote locales like the Outback, there are plenty of scenic coastal roads along the way. Auz is all about open roads, engulfing skies and an intriguing mix of reef and rainforest. 

The best drives are Adelaide to Melbourne – which includes the Great Ocean Road, one of the best coastal landscapes in the world – along with Fraser Island.

If you opt to drive Adelaide to Darwin instead, take a once-in-a-lifetime trip to Uluru, the sacred red rock at the cultural heart of Australia’s indigenous peoples. While you might not see much on long stretches of Outback road, the chance to get away from urban life and see the stars can be reason enough to take the road less travelled. 

No matter where you go, there are plenty of national parks and camp grounds dotting the country for overnight stays. 

Experience the land Down Under by RV

Save up to 60%* when you book and pay for your motorhome rental with Auto Europe before 30 September 2018. Valid for travel throughout 2019.

4. SPAIN

With so much to see and experience in Spain, deciding what to do on your next road trip can be daunting. Auto Europe’s top picks for a road trip by motorhome include a visit to seven of the country’s Unesco World Heritage sites.  

Start in Madrid and head to the world’s first university city of Alcala de Henares, a centre for language and learning. From there, visit the mountaintop town of Cuenca, where ancient architecture hangs seamlessly from natural cliffside landscapes. Then, move on to the “Museum City” of Toledo and Cordoba, a city known for its 300 mosques. 

Finish the roadtrip in Seville, home to three Unesco sites: the sprawling Alcazar compound, the tomb of Christopher Columbus, and the Archivo de Indias that houses the record of Spain’s explorations in the Americas.

Sample tapas, watch – or dance – flamenco and savour the Spanish countryside at your own pace; a motorhome is one of the best ways to explore.

Save on motorhomes in Spain

Book your RV by 1 October in Barcelona or San Sebastian and save 10 to 15%* when travelling between now and 31 October 2018. Contact your nearest Sure Travel Agency to enquire or book, or call 0861 47 48 49.

5. ICELAND

Can’t decide what to see in Iceland? The Ring Road allows easy access to all its must-see destinations: bubbling volcanoes and lava fields, wild coastlines, glaciers, and rolling green valleys. 

Drive the Ring Road in 10 to 14 days – or longer, if you’ve got time. Visit Jokulsarlon Glacier Lagoon, the seaside village of Vík and fiords of Skagafjörður, Myvatn geothermal area, as well as Skogafoss, Seljalandsfoss and Kirkjufellsfoss waterfalls.
