Why I love Amazon Prime
I’m in Ireland, on an epic road trip with my motorhome and my over-excited cocker spaniel.
My water hose, it turns out, is not! 😱
I’m not 100% sure where it left us (one would presume at the last place I filled up the tank) but I can assure you of two things:
- 1- it doesn’t really matter where it is, it’s not flipping here
- 2- I’ve forgotten to replace the collapsible jug I use for emergency fresh water top-ups after I accidentally used it for waste water…
All in all, my options for getting fresh, clean drinking water in my van are limited, especially as it’s St Patrick’s day weekend and the entirety of Ireland is in the pub (aka- I can’t go to a shop).
Enter, Amazon Prime
Within 24 hours I have a new shiny water hose delivered (you can use a campsite address or a collection point when touring).
I also ordered another bag of hose connectors too because they are always handy (and also seem to disappear rapidly while touring!)
This has happened a few times whilst I’ve been travelling in my motorhome. Forgotten chocks. Broken electric cable. Lost sunglasses!
Being able to get so many things delivered to wherever you are within 24 hours (in the UK/ Ireland) has been SO useful, especially when you also don’t need to pay for postage.
On TOP of that, Amazon Prime also gives you access to loads of top TV shows & movies (which you can download on your home wifi and watch whilst travelling- saying on data usage), plus music, podcasts and much more.
Even better? As an Amazon Prime member, you get FREE access to Amazon Prime Day, the next one of which is October 10th and 11th 2023 (yes, I know that’s two days!)
In a rush? Here are the quick links to my favourite products:
What is Amazon Prime Day?
If you’re new to the concept, Amazon Prime Day is a day (or two!) when THOUSANDS of products are reduced in price across Amazon.
Like, 100,000 products.
And not just rubbish stuff either.
Over the years we’ve bought a handheld Dyson at nearly half price, camping chairs, electrical stuff and LOADS of bits for the motorhome.
In fact, the deals are usually so good that I tend to save up my shopping list, just in case I can get a great bargain on something I was going to buy anyway!
How to get the deals for FREE
To take advantage of the discounts, you MUST be an Amazon Prime member (sign up here.)
But before you sigh in disappointment, you can get a 30 day FREE trial of Amazon Prime, which will give you FREE access to ALL the deals which happen over Amazon Prime Day.
Then, if you don’t think it’s worth it for you, you can just cancel you membership and it’s cost you NOTHING. Winner-Winner.
You MUST be a Prime Member, so sign up here – it takes less than 5 minutes.
BONUS MONEY-SAVING TIP: Are you a student? You can get a 6-MONTH trial of Amazon Prime right HERE!

How Amazon Prime Day works
Once you’re signed up, you just log into Amazon as usual (you can use this link to get the the deal page) and then shop as usual. Discounts will be auto-magically applied.
The important thing to remember is that the deals DO NOT all last for all of those 2 days.
Oh no. They are either time-sensitive and last only a few hours, or there is only limited stock- when they’re gone, they’re gone!
I’m going to be keeping my eye out for great deals for motorhoming, campervanning, road trips and other travel goodies and I’ll share them here for you to make it easier to find AMAZING deals.
Some other deals you might like to take advantage of:
Kindle Unlimited Membership– 30 day free trial for eBooks (don’t need a Kindle- I read mine on my iPad with the Kindle app)
Prime Video (included with a Prime membership and SO worth it- there are some fantastic Amazon Only series/ movies)- 30 day free trial
Audible Membership– 30 day free trial for audio books. I listen to LOADS of these whilst driving. You also get access to exclusive podcasts.
Prime Reading (magazines and other books) – 30 day free trial
Amazon Music- 3 months free to loads of music.
Kids+ Family plan- 3 months for just £3.99. Access to 1000s of kid-friendly books, movies, TV shows, educational apps, and games.
At the moment, you can get a 30-day free trial, so join now and make sure you’re ready to take advantage of the deals on the day!

Most deals aren’t announced until the actual Prime day, but there are many ‘early-bird’ opportunities for you.

All the different ways to get power in your motorhome or campervan
We feel an inverter is essential, especially if you’re going to be staying off-grid with your van
Powerbanks are crazy useful if you’re staying off-grid. You can get small ones for phones/ iPads, or larger ones for laptops. We have both types and use them almost every trip!
For many people, internet and wifi is essential. There are many options on how best to do it (read our internet in a motorhome guide)
Electrical items for road trips/ travel
DJI Mini 3 pro – doesn’t require registration in most countries and it’s brilliant!
See my round up of best travel drones here.
One of the BEST gifts I ever got. Love this thing- 90% of our videos are filmed on it.
Last year, they had some INCREDIBLE deals on cameras and camera equipment (like, 50% off sort of deals!) Of course, there’s no guarantee… but there’s a VERY high chance of there being something similar this year
Pivo Pod– Helps me film videos 🙂
The Kindle is one of the BEST travel accessories EVER! You can use the Kindle app on an iPad, so you don’t need to buy a dedicated Kindle, but if you don’t have an iPad it’s a wonderful way to take books with you!
