Why Camperman Australia Are THE Best Option for Campervan Hire Australia
Campervan hire Australia style – yes, the dream of taking a road trip is one many of us have high on our bucket-list. The idea of travelling this way is both exciting and fun. In fact, many movies have been made on this theme, think ‘Thelma and Louise’, ‘Priscilla, Queen of the Desert’, ‘Easy Rider’ and countless others.
There can’t be many countries more ideal than Australia for realising that road-tripping idyll (minus the Hollywood style car chases and gun-fights of course) and as a result there are plenty of companies out there ready to offer their services; camper van hire is offered by the bucket load. So, nothing to worry about but where to go, what adventures to have, what to see, where to stay………..yep! That is what it is all about. Next, track down the cheapest deal, sign on the dotted line, grab your keys and you’re ready to hit the road, right? Wrong!
The bottom line is not all camper van hire services are created equal. What may appear to be the bargain of the century at first glance could spell disaster. At best it may cost you an arm and a leg in add-ons and/or if anything goes wrong and at worst leave your road-tripping fantasies crushed to pulp.
Dream and reality can be worlds apart – here are a few examples……..
The Dream: Driving wherever you want, wherever the road takes you………
The Reality: You’re too busy watching the money add up alarmingly fast on the milometer to enjoy the view OR you arrive back at the end of your trip facing a massive bill because you didn’t read the small print.
THE SOLUTION: Camperman Australia’s campers all include unlimited mileage.
Just in case you didn’t know – Australia is H-U-G-E! Even the most basic of journeys will see you racking up the kilometres. With Camperman Australia it doesn’t matter one jot if you just keep going and going and going…….it won’t cost you anything more.
The Dream: Our van was so cheap we’ll have lots more money to spend on doing lots of fun stuff.
The Reality: One blown tyre in the middle of nowhere + a small prang = a bill we might be paying off for the next 10 years.
THE SOLUTION: The prices quoted by Camperman Australia include comprehensive insurance, unlike most camper van hire companies. You can also include optional windscreen and tyre damage so that no matter what arises you’ll only have to consider the transparent excess of $500.
The Dream: Let’s go for a moonlit walk on the beach and then head to our camp-site.
The Reality: The moonlight stroll was wonderful but now the van won’t start. The answer phone on the helpline we’re ringing says the office is now closed until Monday morning.
THE SOLUTION: Camperman Australia understands that the mischievous gods of mishaps can sometimes play tricks outside of usual business hours. So, included in your camper van hire quote is 24 hour roadside assistance which means, whether it is day or night, they can come to your rescue and get your trip back on track.
The Dream: Let’s hit the road and see where we end up.
The Reality: We got so carried away we are now in Cairns and we have to have the van back in Sydney by tomorrow morning.
THE SOLUTION: Camperman Australia offers 8 different locations for pick-up and drop-off. If you want to start at the bottom and finish at the top you can. Total freedom to roam where you will in fact.
The Dream – Road tripping is all about free and easy living, we can cope with the bare minimum.
The Reality – It’s cramped in here, I’m missing my home comforts and I’m fed up with nipping out in the night to go to the loo. They never mentioned any of this in Thelma and Louise……

What’s more, each Camperman rental includes a ‘Travel Pack’ completely free of charge which includes, among other things – all your bedding, linen, cutlery, crockery and cooking bits and bobs as well as maps and guides.
The Dream: Racking up the kilometres on the highways without a care in the world.
The Reality: A batch of road toll fees that we don’t understand and which attract a hefty fine if we ignore them.
THE SOLUTION: Each Camperman hire vehicle has a toll fee token fitted which automatically pays your toll fees as you drive. This idea – totally unique in Australia to Camperman – takes away the road toll navigation hassles.
The Dream: I’m happy to drive the whole time – it saves us the cost of adding drivers.
The Reality: I’m totally exhausted – I wish you were covered to drive to give me a rest.
THE SOLUTION: Camperman charges no extra for adding additional drivers which means you can take the driving responsibilities in turn, if you choose.
