"Boomerang Campers I will be back agaim and again"

  • Reviewed 5 months ago

I had a massive road trip from Perth to Broome then to Darwin and then back again. Over 60 hrs of driving the vehicle never missed a beat. Loved being able to drive to the remote locations and the Landcruiser troopy is perfectly built to stand up to the tough Aussie environment.
The vehicle was returned in a clean condition and the full bond was returned within days .
I couldn't be happier definitely going to rent from Boomerang Campers again

"NEVER, never, never again"

  • Reviewed 5 months ago

We rented a campervan for 32 days in January 2019. We had to do a deposit of 3500 AUD. A very small scratch at the frontdoor and never seen our deposit back. Very friendly when you pick up the car but at the end you really learn to know them. (Sorry English is not my motherlanguage) . Do not go there if you love your money. Go to an honnest company.

    Hi Patrick,
    There are. few facts missing your review. We understand your English is not your first Language
    One of our vehicles was damaged when you had a road accident, unfortunately the accident caused damage to another vehicle also. The $3500 security bond was used towards the repairs to both vehicles, the invoice from each of the repairers was sent to you and your insurance company.

"Perth - Perth in 4 weeks"

  • Reviewed 6 months ago

We knew Boomerang from our last Australia trip a few years ago. Because of our good experiences with them then, we booked for our 2019 trip in WA the VW Crafter again with Boomerang. The owner changed meanwhile, neveretheless, we were very satisfied also this time with both, the van and the assistance of Debbie/her collegues . The VW Crafter is an older vehicle, but possess the same interior as the similar van from Appollo (just older). The bond we paid at the beginning of our trip has been fully repaied immediately after returning the van. Whenever we returne to WA we will be happy to book a car/van from Boomerang again :-)

"Value for money"

  • Reviewed 1 year ago

We booked Boomerang because they were a lot cheaper than other companies like Britz so were a little worried about what we would find when we arrived to pick up the van. A pleasant surprise, the campervan was in good shape and well equipped and ran like a charm for the 3000 kms we put it through. OK it's not the luxury of a Maui BUT perfectly good and you get what you pay for.
As a bonus, Dan and his wife ( owners) are a delight. Lots of good info about where to go/what to do before we set out and he's a funny guy.
