5 Easy Steps On ‘How To Book A Campervan’

If you’re needing help planning your next adventure

then look no further than these easy steps on how to book your next campervan.

1. Know your dates. 

This is pretty self explanatory but we get it that sometimes plans can change and you can’t always be 100% sure on how long you intend to have your vehicle for. 

We recommend booking the maximum dates you need to get from A to B. You can always try to extend your vehicle on the road if you need to but please be aware this could be a little more expensive than you originally paid per day. It’s also subject to availability. That means that there might be someone already booked in to pick up your vehicle just after you’re meant to be dropping it off at your end destination. In this instance you wouldn’t be allowed to extend your rental and might have to cut your trip shorter than you’d like. 

2. Find the right vehicle to suit your needs. 

Firstly, if you haven’t already checked out our ‘How to pick the perfect camper’ guide, then we suggest you do so now. 

It’s super important to find the right vehicle to suit your needs. Some of the things to consider are;

  • How long is your trip going to take? The longer the trip, the more space and comfort you may need and in turn a larger campervan may be required. 
  • What is your budget? This is simple, what can you fit into your budget that won’t break the bank? This is where we can help. Fill out the ‘Customer Camper Quote’ form and we’ll do the rest. 
  • Where do you plan to stay on the way? If you’re staying in campsites, hostels or somewhere with access to showers and restrooms then you may want to pick a budget ‘2-berth camper’ or ‘Hi-Top’. If you plan to travel to more remote areas, it may be better to consider a ‘Self-Contained Motorhome’

3. Take away the stress. Let us do the rest. 

Australia and New Zealand are home to loads of different campervan companies. It can be quite overwhelming when searching for prices online. It’s not always easy to find real-time live availability, unbiased recommendations and genuine comparisons. 

The whole thing can be a bit messy. That’s where we step in. 

Our team of experts are here to help you find the best campervan to suit your needs. We’ll go directly to the suppliers, find the best quotes and provide you with clear options.

We encourage you to ask as many questions as you like along the way. Once you’re satisfied with your choice we’ll help you get the best price guaranteed for that vehicle – Did we mention we don’t change ANY booking fees?

Simple.

4. Book early and save.

An important thing to consider when booking your next campervan is that most campervan companies have dynamic pricing. This means that the price of their vehicles fluctuate based on factors such as availability, time of season and length of rental. Generally speaking as campervans get booked out, the price can increase the closer you get to the date of rental. 

This can vary from just a few dollars per day and up. Now that may not sound like a lot but when travelling for an extended period of time it could be the equivalent cost of a bucket list tour or activity.

5. Easy payment solutions. 

When confirming your booking we require you to pay a deposit to secure your vehicle. Usually 25% of the total cost. The remaining balance will then need to be paid upon pick up of the vehicle. This way there’s no need to pay everything up front. Easy.
