How car­a­van own­ers can save hun­dreds of dol­lars on regis­tra­tion

The Northern Star - - NEWS -

GREY no­mads, fam­i­lies and ad­ven­tur­ers can ex­pect to see huge sav­ings on regis­tra­tion costs with a 40 per cent dis­count an­nounced.

Clarence MP Chris Gu­lap­tis said the gov­ern­ment’s de­ci­sion to re­duce the mo­tor ve­hi­cle tax on pri­vately-regis­tered car­a­vans and camper trail­ers would help ease cost of liv­ing pres­sures.

“There is never a bet­ter time to start plan­ning your sum­mer road trip with sav­ings of up to $471 on new regis­tra­tions and re­newals if you own a car­a­van or camper-trailer,” he said.

“The re­duc­tion ap­plies to new regis­tra­tions and re­newals of pri­vately-regis­tered car­a­vans and pur­pose-built camper trail­ers, from 255kg up to 4.5 tonnes.”

The re­duc­tion will be ap­plied au­to­mat­i­cally to new regis­tra­tions and re­newals from No­vem­ber 1.

The “sig­nif­i­cant dis­counts” have been wel­comed by the NRMA.
