The Euro Deluxe Motorhome is their priciest vehicle rental at roughly around $230 AUD per day on a normal rate. The vehicle is best for large family since it could accommodate up to 6 people. The Euro Camper is a 4 berth camper while the Adventurer and Weekender are 3 berth vehicles respectively. However, the Weekender is much more expensive than Adventurer because of the type of vehicle used.

The standard rates include unlimited kilometers, standard excess insurance cover, extensive travel information pack, NRMA roadside assistance, full water tank and gas bottle, living equipment, cleaning fee, 10% GST and 2% local state tax. However, the standard rates may vary depending on the season. During October and Christmas school holidays, the special rates ranges from an additional of 14% up to 35%.

The rental of all vehicles can be matched up with additional equipment that must also be booked at the time of reservation. Camping table, chairs, beach umbrella and child booster are the additions charged at $20 AUD each per rental.

And if you need something at any time of the day, there is no need to worry. They have a 24/7 customer care and road assistance which is very beneficial for all the renters to be equipped with everything they need. Aside from that, the company offers a free parking in a safe location at the owner's home and free airport transport when you return the vehicle.                           

Insurance     

A standard excess insurance cover is included in every rented vehicle. And though there is no upfront cost to cover the insurance, the company requires an imprint of your credit card. And if an accident happens, the standard excess is $2000 AUD.

Reputation   

Advance Campervans Rental is actually a small company compared to Aussie Campervans Rental, Apollo Car Rentals, Jucy Car Rental and Camperavan Hire.

And since it is small family-owned business, some customers think that their vehicles are a bit old and may not be advisable for a very long drive. However, the company gives another quote for a new car. The bottom line is Advance Campervans Rental is a nice option if you are looking for a more personalized and cheap campervan rental.
