Compare and book cheap Campervan Hire in Australia

Find, compare and book the cheapest campervan and motorhome rental deals in Australia and beyond.

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.

For those 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, but they are also 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 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 of 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 southwest WA offers stunning landscapes and pristine beaches, 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 rental trips, Brisbane to Cairns along the Bruce Highway.

At DriveNow we take the effort out of comparing and booking campervan hire in Australia and elsewhere. We offer the widest choice of Australian campervan rental providers and have been working with the biggest and best brands in the market since 2003.

Top Campervanning Tips

  • Plan your driving itinerary before you travel. Australia has a diverse range of environments so do your research prior to setting out on your journey. Share the driving and take a break every couple of hours, rest areas on the main highways are located every 80 to 100 kilometres.
  • Cheapest day of the week to refuel in Australia is on Tuesday and Wednesday.
  • Booking early provides you with the best choice of vehicles and availability - especially during peak travelling times.
  • Pack a power board when travelling so you can recharge a number of electrical appliances at the one time (phones, iPads, laptops, camera, torch, shaver, etc).
  • Pack your belongings in soft bags as opposed to bulky suitcases, you’ll give yourself more room for other essential items.
  • Travelling with soft luggage is the easiest way to store bags in the storage compartments.
  • When travelling during the peak holiday season, booking your holiday park with a powered site or camp grounds is essential.
  • When you arrive at the branch, you will get to meet your new home with a personalised show-through by one of the branch staff, they will tell you all the in’s and out’s of making the most of your campervan. So make sure you arrive at the branch for check-in at least an hour before closing time.
  • When travellers finish their journey, many have items left over which they donated to the branch. Before heading off to the supermarket, check with the team at the branch if they have any items available. (items such as – cooking oil, salt & pepper, tea & coffee, sugar, spices, tin foil, cling wrap, sunscreen, insect repellent, rubbish bags, washing powder, washing detergent)
  • If you are travelling on an international licence or have a certified translation, you are also required to bring your official home country drivers license.
  • If you are picking up and dropping off at the same location (ie. Sydney to Sydney), many of the branches will allow you to leave your empty bags at the branch in their store room, when storage room space is available. This will allow you to unpack your luggage to store directly in the vehicle, giving you more space.
  • If you are collecting the vehicle from your hometown, collect the vehicle the day before you head off on your holiday so you can pack the vehicle from your home and do the reverse at the end of your trip.

Overnight Parking your Campervan

Australia offers a rich and wide variety of holiday parks and many our of rental partners have agreements offering discounted rates with some of the larger Holiday Park organisations. Big 4 Holiday parks and Top Tourist both cover Australia and offer excellent recreational services including powered sites and wastewater disposal facilities.

Parts, Pieces, and Accessories for your Australian Campervan Rental

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 that 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.

How to Find the best Campervan Deal

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. By booking well in advance you will secure the vehicle you want at the best price with the widest choice and availability.

One Way Campervan Relocations

If you have a flexible timetable and happy to travel at short notice then Campervan Relocation Rental deals are just the ticket for you! With relocations starting from $5 per day the savings are simply huge and the Campervan companies will often throw in free fuel.
