What better way to explore Australia than hiring a campervan and taking off on your own self-drive adventure.
With the freedom of a self-driving road holiday coupled with the added security of self-contained accommodation there really has never been a better opportunity to discover that piece of Australia you've always wanted to experience. And, you'll be doing your bit to help the country and all Australians get back on their feet as the economy strives to return to normality.
For those who are new to the idea of hiring and driving a RV, campervan or motorhome for a holiday you're in for a pleasant surprise. Not only are they are superbly equipped, they are surprisingly easy to drive, come with all the safety features and driving aids we expect today, the vast majority are automatic transmission and all can be driven on a regular car driving license. From budget 2 berth campers through to luxury 2,4 and 6 berth RV motorhomes, there's something for everyone with every traveller and every travelling budget catered for.
During the Australian winter months the most popular road holiday destinations have always been in the north, Alice Springs, Broome, Darwin, Cairns and all points between. Whereas spring through autumn is traditionally a time to focus on the southern states.
Often we forget what's on our doorsteps for international travel adventures further afield. Hire a campervan out of Sydney and head south along the Princes Highway on the coast coast towards Melbourne. Kick a trip off from Melbourne and head to Adelaide but take the slow route and travel along the Great Ocean Road to explore the 12 Apostles, Port Fairy, Mount Gambier, Robe and South East South Australia. For those in Western Australia, there is so much to choose from, Perth down to Margaret River seems tame in comparison to the vastness of a road trip up the west coast to Broome, but south west WA offers stunning landscapes, not forgetting world class wineries. Tasmania has to be one of the world's most beautiful and unspoiled destinations. And Queensland, where the sun rarely stops shining, is perfect to visit almost any day of the year and home to one of the most popular campervan route trips, Brisbane to Cairns along the Bruce Highway.

These days, campervans are often so intelligently designed that it’s almost unbelievable how much can be packed inside and neatly stored away. Our partners' fleets are no exception, as vehicles are equipped with all the essentials you’ll need for eating and sleeping comfortably while still leaving plenty of space for you to move around. Just make sure to have a quick look through your booking with your chosen operator before you set off, as there also may be the option to rent extra items like outdoor furniture.
The trick to finding the best price on Campervan hire is to book earlier. Rental rates are lower when booking in advance and during peak periods such as Christmas, Easter and even school holidays prices go up and vehicles are harder to come by.
