With international travel off the cards, more Aussies are embracing the many great local holiday destinations with caravanning and camping still high on the list, according to Battery World’s recent customer reports.“Our camping, caravan and 4X4 battery unit sales increased by 18% from 2020 to 2021, and we saw a phenomenal 204% increase in battery charger sales over the last 12 months,” said Battery World General Manager, Johnny Kennedy.
According to the recent Caravan Industry Association’s Insights for the Australian caravan and camping industry, caravanning and camping holidays remain the largest and most popular domestic tourism sectors since international border closures.
With the onset of Spring coupled with the school holidays, 62% of Aussie campers and caravaners are likely to take a domestic holiday and Battery World is encouraging holidaymakers to check their caravan and camping batteries before hitting the road.
Battery World’s Automotive Category Expert and race car driver Steve Pizzati, said before jetting off on your next caravan or camping adventure, it’s important to ensure that your batteries are in working condition.
“Many people aren’t aware that Winter is the hardest time of year for your batteries due to the shorter days and harsh weather causing additional strain, which may take some life out of them,” Steve said.
“Good news! This means Spring is the perfect time to get on top of your battery maintenance to ensure you’re ready for your next holiday. A Battery World battery health check is the simplest way to enjoy the warmer weather that’s ahead and avoid getting caught out, and you can easily book a battery test on the Battery World website, or visit your local store.”
Whether you’re going off the beaten track or escaping to crystal blue waters, ensuring your caravan, camping or 4X4 batteries are in top condition before hitting the road will mean a safer and smoother trip.
