Next weekend we are at the Western Motorhome Show in Malvern. This very popular event will have over 250 exhibitors offering every possible accessory for your motorhome along with 50 motorhome dealers displaying over 500 models. GB Motorhome Tours stand is number 158 so do come along and see us; with all our Tour Directors in attendance it’s a great opportunity to discuss all aspects of continental motorhome touring.
Shortly after Malvern our touring season starts again with trips going to Switzerland, Romania & Bulgaria and Sardinia. There is now just one cancellation place available on the Romania & Bulgaria tour if you wish to join this adventure with your motorhome. The tour takes you through two of Eastern Europe’s least explored countries with 30 days of travel where you will experience the real countries and see them before too many others discover their charms. Throughout the tour also enjoy the local cuisine with an above average number of group meals included so don’t expect to be cooking much whilst away! To book this one available place visit www.GBMotorhomeTours.com or telephone us.
Moving into Autumn this is a popular time to give thought to winter holidays. For travelling in your motorhome over the winter months whilst enjoying summer like weather our Canary Islands tour offers a unique opportunity to escape the UK cold. Departing from Southern Spain on 21 January 2020 we sail to the Canary Islands for 10 weeks of touring on Tenerife, La Palma, La Gomera and Gran Canaria. Within the tour are included many excursions and group meals to enjoy & learn of the islands cultures and traditions. If 10 weeks is too long for you to be away it is also possible for us to tailor a package for you to complete a part of the tour. Details of the Full tour are available by clicking on Canary Islands 2020 tour or should you wish to complete a part of the tour email or telephone us.
Our programme of tours for next year is now finalised with the recent addition of Italy – Down to the Heel 2020 tour. This is an altogether new tour, fully researched and ready for next year. The tour is available in two parts: Italy – Down to the Heel – The North (10 nights from the Northern Lakes to Rome) and Italy – Down to the Heel – The South (21 nights from Pompeii to Puglia). You can choose either part, or the complete 32 night tour. The choice is yours. Full details by clicking on the names above and bookings on www.GBMotorhomeTours.com.
For cooking & heating, many motorhomes now use LPG refillable gas cylinders/tanks rather than the more traditional style ‘Calor’ exchange cylinders. Refillable LPG offers a number of advantages over exchange cylinders, not least that LPG is available all across Europe so you can top-up as required whilst touring and at a price around 60% (or more) cheaper than exchanging a cylinder back at home. Whilst always cheaper, it is worth being aware that LPG prices vary considerably across Europe and don’t always follow diesel prices in relation to which countries offer the best value. Belgium is one of the cheapest countries for LPG whilst at the same time being one of the most expensive for diesel. A full list of European LPG prices is available at https://autotraveler.ru/en/spravka/lpg-price-in-europe.html
Enjoy the remainder of the summer and we look forward to escorting you and your motorhome to great places soon.
