Yesterday on my way home from the Sydney Travel Expo I decided to pull over and fill up with petrol. It wasn't until I pulled the petrol pump off its hook and started filling up my tank that I realised I was going to have to pay $1.67 per litre! That was just crazy and the highest cost I had ever seen and from what we are hearing the price is only going to get higher.
It seems like we are going to have to pay high Petrol prices for quite a while. While car hire remains the easiest and in my opinion best way to get around when you're on holidays it's important that you factor in petrol money to your travel budget. There are heaps of websites that can tell you the price of petrol in the country you will be visiting. Make sure to check before you go so you can factor this into your spending money. Also don't forget to convert the overseas prices into your own currency to get a better understanding of how much you are likely to spend on petrol. Planning ahead will help prepare you for what to expect when the time comes to refill your rental car.
