Caravanners will get a little more to spend on their holidays, with the government planning to cut registration costs by 40 per cent.

The cut to the motor vehicle tax component of the yearly registration costs will come into effect from November 1.

The rego reduction only applies to privately owned caravans and camper trailers and is designed to reflect the lesser amount of time they are on the road compared to cars.

“The change will apply to towed caravans and purpose-built camper trailers weighing up to 4.5 tonnes, putting a saving of up to $471 back into the pockets of hard-working families across the state,” said Roads Minister Melinda Pavey.

Caravan and camper owners will still be required to pay the standard NSW registration fees including the annual fee of $65.
