More on Motorhomes

The sheer joy of only having to unpack once into the vehicle and again only on your last day is terrific. Remember if you choose a car and accommodation you are going to have to unpack and repack your suitcase each time you change hotel, not to mention having to hoik your bag into and out of the boot of your car.

Whilst a motorhome does cost more to rent than a car, your real savings come into effect when you prepare your own breakfasts, packed lunches and dinners. Especially on longer trips, one does tired of eating out every meal and you find yourself longing for a simple meal of sausage and mashed potato which can be so easily prepared in your motorhome! Shopping for groceries is such fun and its a great way to meet the locals and experience the 'real' country.


A motorhome, also known as a campervan, motorcaravan, RV or wohnmobile is really a lifestyle choice. They are more fun, more real and a holiday memories are made of. You meet so many different people at campsites, kids socialise with each other in spite of language barriers and adults can have social evenings, with a bottle of wine and discuss the troubles of the world or of course, the must see tourist attraction that the campers next door experienced yesterday. I mean, when last have you spoken to the people in the hotel room next door to you?

Of course, there are a few things you should consider before deciding on a motorhome. There is the 'harmony factor'...Whilst you will be spending most of the time out and about sightseeing, you will be spending time close together in a relatively small area so if you are a bunch of friends travelling together, consider if snoring, untidiness or a general lack of consideration will become a factor. Someone will probably have to cook, someone will have to wash dishes, someone will have to refill the water....however a roster system should soon fix that!


You also need to do some planning. Unlike a bus tour, you will need to have a rough itinerary and an idea of routing. A good guidebook or two will be handy and if you dont read up before your trip, someone can read out all the interesting facts whilst you are driving to your next stop.

When you tell us what you would like to do, we make suggestions taking the above and other information into account, ensuring you receive best value for money, stretching your holiday dollar further. Complete our QUOTATION form and we'll get back to you quick-smart. The service does not stop there. Once you have paid your deposit we send you a comprehensive travel pack to help with your planning.

Below are some articles which were originally written for our UK and Europe site, however, the information still applies.

Australia and New Zealand Motorhome & Campervan Hire FAQ's


We have never rented a motorhome before. Will we know what to do?
At departure you will be given a 30-60 minute familiarization tour and learn how to hook it up and operate appliances and be shown a video at most rental centers.

How long do the batteries last?
Most vehicles have a dual battery system. This means that the engine battery is separate from the battery system used for appliances such as the fridge, lights and water pump. The appliance battery system will last approximately 12 hours when fully charged. The battery charges as you drive the vehicle. Should you flatten one of the batteries, you can still start the engine and drive the vehicle. All vehicles an of course be plugged into electricity at campsites/caravan parks. When you plug in, all appliances etc automatically run off electricity instead of the battery. Note that some items such as microwaves adn rear airconditioning only run off electricity.

Should we choose the additional insurance options?
If you dont have travel insurance that covers the excess on the motorhome and if you dont take out the optional insurances, you run the risk of being held responsible for $5000 worth of damage. For Australian and New Zealand clients it is worth noting that travel insurance can be purchased that will cover the excess on the vehicle. Check your policy for 'rental vehicle insurance excess'. However, if you do take up this option, note that you will have to leave a $5000 deposit by credit card and if you have to make a claim, the rental company will keep your deposit and you then make a claim on your travel insurance. Please check the details of your policy carefully - as policies vary between companies. We are happy to offer Australian clients a discount on travel insurance when they book their motorhome with us. Unfortunately, we can only sell insurance to residents of Australia.

Is there a limit to how many people can ride in the motorhome?
In Australia & New Zealand it is compulsory that all passengers wear seatbelts.

What else should we know?
In both Australian and New Zealand, we drive on the left hand side of the road.
Speed limits are enforced.
There are some roads on which motorhomes can not travel in both both Australia & New Zealand


Can we leave our luggage at the rental location?

If you are returning to the same depot - you can. However, just check with us first. This would be at your own risk.

Where can we find information to pre-plan our overnight stops in caravan parks etc?
In New Zealand have a look at: Top 10 Holiday Parks and Holiday Accommodation Parks of New Zealand
In Australia have a look at: Family Parks, Big 4 Holiday Parks, Top Tourist Parks

You will be given a welcome pack which includes a discount card for campsites.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to email us. We will get back to you within 24 hours at the very latest.
