hi, me and a few friends are going to australia next year and intend to hire a camper van (VW style) and drive through WA exploring on the way. just wanted to ask the people if anyone knew where is best to hire a camper van from without getting ripped off. how much money is it likely to cost to hire?? also, is it possible with such deals to drop it off in a different city, eg, darwin. thanks. any help is greatly appreciated!!:)

My friend and I have been looking at doing the same thing, we go to Oz on the 19th (we want to get our own Scooby Doo Mystery Van!) The best place to start is google - we got quite a few web addresses which we could then get in touch with to get quotes.

A couple to start off with are http://www.apollocamper.com/ and http://www.australiancampervans.com/

Is best to have a look round like most things cos some places do special deals at different times of the year, depending on what type of van and how long you want it for

Hope this helps.

Ps A lot of the sites have links to campervan hire in NZ as well

Hi there,

My journal of my 3 week camper van tour around NZ might be useful to you.

It's at http://web.ukonline.co.uk/jeff.jane. I know that free camping in NZ is not actually legal, but coming from the UK it was refreshing to be able to pull up in some stunning locations and stay overnight. A camper was such a good idea.
