"Great campervan experience in stunning Tassie"

Renting a Leisure Rent campervan for an 8-week-stay in Tasmania was the best decision. Correspondence with Ken was friendly, immediate and reliable from start to finish. And in comparison with other companies I thought prices were reasonable with fair insurance options for such a long rental period (however fortunately I did not need to use it). The van was easy and convenient to navigate and felt safe while driving. Everything was absolutely clean and tidy when I picked the vehicle up, the interior is well constructed and the equipment that comes with the campervan is thought through really well, so that one might be able to tick off some items from the initial get-ready-to-go-shopping list straight away. The staff you meet at pickup and return were friendly and helpful as well.
Thank you for this great and relaxing home away from home experience. Would definitely rent a Leisure Rent campervan again when returning to Tasmania.
Thanks Helene, it was our pleasure to have you rent with us for such a long time, and we really appreciate your wonderful review of our vehicle and what we provide.
It's feedback such as yours that make operating this business so worthwhile.
This was our first camper van experience in Tasmania and we made the right choice.
The camper van was more than adequate for our needs.
We hired the van for one week, however we could have hired for longer.
We also phoned them with a question on the last day and they were extremely helpful.
Overall we had a great experience and would highly recommend this company to anyone.
I'm pleased you had a great experience renting from us Mel - one week really isn't long enough to explore the beauty of Tasmania as I'm sure you discovered.
I hope you'll come back again to see more of our wonderful Island.
We have just enjoyed two weeks crusing Tassie in a Leisure Rent vehicle. The vehicle was fully equipped with all we could possibly need on the road. Easy to drive and maneauvour, the tranistion from couch to be was simple each evening. Fridge and Microwave worked very well.
Hire this van with confidence and enjoy Tassie
Thanks Linda for rating us so highly and am pleased this was your 'perfect holiday on wheels'
My partner and I hired a Leisure Rent campervan for our Tassie Trip. Highly recommend this company as communication was always prompt and very clear. The campervan was in amazing state when we received it, everything was clean and tidy. It came with everything you could possibly need for a campervan experience across Tassie. Would definitely hire again to explore :)
We really appreciate your positive review and pleased you were impressed with everything which was supplied - we look forward to welcoming you back again soon.
This vehicle is too small for my husband and I and we aren’t big people. Beware the weight limit for sleeping above the cabin 80kgs, it would be too claustrophobic anyway - we were just trying to gain space. Nowhere to put our luggage ? The bed was hard and uncomfortable and short. The fridge compressor cycled every 4 -5 minutes which was noisy when sleeping. The knob on the kitchen sliding cupboard thread was gone so you had to rely on fingernails to get it open. We ended up in a cabin for the last 3 nights. We are half glass full people and always look on the positive side, which in this case served for our test trip to work out what size vehicle is right for our future longer trips. It drove well and very economical. Thank you ?
Thanks for your balanced feedback; perhaps for your future longer trips a motorhome may be a better option for you rather than a campervan.
Overall, good vehicle. Considering the condition of the vehicle, it is relatively good value of money.
All the process starting from booking, picking and returning the vehicle was smooth.
The only issue is, this company relies on the service of third parties -- airport parking companies. So the services of these parking companies affect overall experience. We were dropped by DrivePark&Fly far before the drop-down point in the Launceston airport, so we have to.walk longer to the terminal.
Other point to note: the water hose provided was too short for many parks.
Nice to read your overall experience of using us was good, and you felt it good value for money - using the 3rd party services does allow us to keep our prices low and highly competitive, and I guess that is a trade off. Thanks for the feedback, which is duly noted.
Great little camper. Very well equiped. Had everything we needed, even a shopping bag. Staff good. Not problems at all. Would recommend!
It's the little things that count - we think! so glad you felt it was a great little camper and thanks for the compliments too.
This was a great van - it was clean and everything just worked. The van was easy to drive, good on petrol, you could hook your phone up & listen to music, and it was all up pretty comfy. I'm no mechanic but it felt like a really safe and well-maintained vehicle.
Glad to read everything worked and you thought it was a great van - they certainly are hard not to like!
Ken was very helpful. We had no towels but Ken dropped them off to us early next morning along with an extra blanket as we requested. Van great for 2 people but a bit cosy for 4 - we had two teenagers so it's a bit squashed up the top area. But if you kids are younger it's ideal. A couple of suggestions that could easily be fixed was knobs on cupboards under sink kept coming off and they are very hard to slide. Also warmer doona would be good in the cooler weather, the zip was broken on the doona cover so it kept coming out. Good to have the heater! Otherwise a great van, all the equipment is there or you can hire additional things like chairs/table. And the pickup / drop off at Launceston airport for seamless. Would definitely rent again from Leisurerent.
Thanks for your suggestions - we're changing the knobs to handles on the slide cupboards to correct this problem; we look forward to the next time you come and visit us!
The campervan fits to us
Glad you enjoyed it
This is the second time using these campers - this time being a trip from Launceston, down the east coast to Hobart. First time with two adults was great, and adding an 8 year old this time was just as good. We all fit and slept perfectly, with the kit out providing everything you need to be self sufficient and make the most of some great free camping sites in Tasmania. The van itself is super easy to drive, reversing camera is a plus for those not used to larger vehicles. The camper kitchen is well provisioned with just about all the utensils, pots, pans and crockery you need. A slightly larger fry pan would have been a plus, along with a grater, but otherwise couldn't complain. It would be handy to have a tick list at booking for towels and linen etc, as this was otherwise sorted out via email. A great all round campervan that we'd definitely use again for a similar trip.
Thanks for your comprehensive review, and so pleased to read it was a perfect family holiday and you found the campervan well equipped foe your holiday needs.
My wife and I hired a campervan from Launceston airport and LeisureRent was one of the very few options we had as most companies only use Hobart as a pick up point. It was our first time hiring a campervan so I wasn't sure what to expect but was very impressed by what Ken offers. The vehicles are very new and in perfect condition. They drive very well and it didn't feel like I was driving a tractor which I half expected would be the case given that they are much bigger than a car but easier to handle than an RV. The interiors are nicely laid out and it was comfortable for 4 people to travel in, which we had each day.
We were staying in a campsite with friends that are seasoned campers and they were all very impressed with the lay out and more importantly the contents. They were astonished that it came with a microwave along side the 2 gas burner cooktop, a decent sized fridge, table and chairs (good for a few beers), and little things like a coffee plunger that really makes a difference when your camping outdoors on a chilly Tasmanian morning.
They also supply a small fan heater, which we only used one evening to take the chill off before getting into bed. I found the van to be well insulated as I only needed the duvet supplied (although my wife used a sleeping bag we took as well) and considering it dropped to zero outside during the night I was fine.
I was very impressed with the set up and the service Ken provided before I picked up the van. I would highly recommend this van to anyone that is travelling as a couple. There is a '2nd' bed in the roof cavity but it's really only designed for children (or one small adult) as has a 80kg limit. We are planning on another trip to Tassie and I'll be renting from Ken again for sure.
Thanks for your comprehensive review; I'm sure it will assist future customers to get an understanding of the campervan form someone who's experienced it first hand.
We're pleased you had a great trip.
We loved the campervan. It had everything we needed. The bed in the roof made it comfortable enough to sleep all 3 of us each night.
I'm pleased you and your toddler found everything you needed, including a cosy bed. Thank for the positive feedback.
Easy pick up and drop off, friendly staff and a reliable vehicle. Overall a great service.
Thanks for your feedback - Campervanning should be so easy. Glad it all went to plan.
Overall we had a good experience. Would be good to have a tool to make coffee.
Pleased to read you've had a good experience; thanks for your suggestion.
From the booking process through to handing the van back at the end, it was a simple system and very well done. Ken always responded immediately and helpfully to any questions in the run up to our trip and sorted out a small problem we had at the start very fast and efficiently. Van was virtually new and was great to drive and travel in. Had an excellent 13 days. Thoroughly recommend Leisure Rent and Ken. Thanks Ken.
Thanks for choosing us David, and so glad you had an excellent 13 days in the campervan. Thanks for the great feedback.
The van handled very well, was reliable and the design was well laid out and practical. The kitchen was well equipped and bedding and towels provided comfy. Only recommendation would be to install the lower bed in the back of the van with storage space underneath and have kitchen and cupboard close to the side entrance. This would minimize the daily reconfiguration process and allow for better access.
Ken was very responsive on any question or inquiry and we always felt in very good hands.
Would definitely recommend and rent again!
Thanks for the feedback and your suggested re design; however for us the layout you would prefer wouldn't allow for additional seat belts for the rear, and would mean purely a 2 berth vehicle. We require the flexibility of having up to 4 people travelling.
Glad you enjoyed the experience all the same.
Children enjoy a lot and it is a good way to discover Tasmania. For parents back, it is more hard ... we recommend.
Nice to hear the children enjoyed the campervan, and thanks for the recommendation.
Well presented and very true to its description. Highly reccomend this company, and its amazing service. We had an absolutely amazing time exploring Tasmania, and the campervan was spacious enough with 2 kids.
Appreciate your positive feedback Martin and pleased to hear you had an amazing time.
We had an excellent experience with our camper van rental from Leisure Rent, I can't really fault it. The vehicle was perfect, brand new and exactly what we had been hoping for. In fact it exceeded expectations.
The picking up and dropping off of the vehicle was easy.
I would highly recommend a rental from Leisure Rent and feel certain we will use them again.
Exceeding expectations - that's brilliant! so glad your experience with us was excellent and we look forward to welcoming you again in the future.
