We definitely can not recommend a Campervan from Calypso. The Van had several lacks, while raining we had a wet bed, kitchen and cockpit as well. Furthermore, the owner has confirmed a part refund but never payed it to us.

WORST RENTAL EXPERIENCE EVER!!!!!! COMPLETE SCAM ARTISTS!!
We rented over the Christmas period 2015, returned the vehicle to Melbourne. Everything was fine and signed off and checked. Then 2 weeks later I get an email saying the company has taken $350 from my credit card used!! No phone call, no contact prior, they just decided to take the liberty of charging us for apparent damages 2 weeks after all signed off and bond replaced!! Worst company ever! Complete scam artists! Fighting the charge but Calypso are awful to deal with!! RENT WITH ANYONE EXCEPT THESE GUYS IF YOU WANT A DECENT COMPANY TO DEAL WITH

Our family recently hired the hume camper van from Calypso. We hired through Vroom Vroom. We were told that we had to pick up our vehicle before noon on a specific day. We were driving to Adelaide from a town about three hours away and so we woke up early in order to not be late in picking up our vehicle. When we got to the office in Adelaide at 1130 the woman working there was not even aware that there was a vehicle pick-up that morning. We had to come back over an hour later so that she could prepare the vehicle. Although the vehicle was reasonably clean it was pretty rough around the edges. We were concerned that we might not make it to Melbourne as it was unstable at high speeds and the pick up was so poor we had a friend who was a mechanic check it out to make sure that we wouldn't have problems. Some of the windows would not open, the side mirror was wobbly. we had to tie the back cabinet doors together so that they wouldn't swing while we were driving. There was no orientation about checking the oil, the middle front seatbelt was missing(we had specifically asked for one) and there was no clear direction regarding toll roads or the fact that the drop off site was so far from the Melbourne Airport. When I called the person at the drop off site to ask regarding a ride to the airport I was told that this service was only offered during the week and that we should be able to take pubic transport to the airport…This option was seriously not practical as we had luggage and would have had to carry it for some distance in order to make the transfers-not to mention the hour and a half that would have taken us. We were not impressed and would not use your vans again.
