Hotel Airport Apartments nearest to Britz

Britz motorhome rental
Campervan for two. With shower. Auto transmission. Internal access/walkthru.

Approx S$2710 for 10 days, or about $270 per day... not including fuel, campsite fees (about AUD$50 per night)

It is about 100 cheaper to get the add'l insurance, etc separately than to get the bonus pack. This option then allows me to get the Add'l protection cover (rollover cover). I don't think I will need it, but as a first time driver, lets just cover everything. 

[The rental car and hotel room options may be a little cheaper. But limited to whatever hotels are available. Some figures are about AUD160 per night for hotels, and $$60+ per day for car rental - 4WD or larger. Possible to get an economy or compact car for about AUD35 per day but this is before insurance and stuff. so it's about the same or the car option may be a little more expensive most likely.]      



Hmm... looking at the picture, can save $25 if I skip the camping table. :-)
But I just realise the toilet is a chemical toilet. 80 l waste water (for shower, presumably).
Need to ask about maintenance of the chemical toilet.

Insurance cover for Excess.
