The pick-up point at the airport was not properly described because the signage had changed. A map would have helped. Otherwise, the staff service was friendly and efficient.
I hired a small manual car but was allocated a new, small, automatic instead. No problem with that. The levers were on the opposite sides to what I was used to, which caused some initial hair-raising moments.
It was a good urban runabout but lacked power driving outside of Hobart. I just allowed other drivers to overtake me.
The cost of the hire was very reasonable.
Glad you found our pricing point very reasonable - will look into the map option for better instructions on pickup.
Leisure Rent = Newest car + lowest price + excellent service + super easy pick up and drop off + seamless online booking + top-notch service on the phone. Thank you for bringing the car rental experience into the 21st century! You guys are awesome!
Thanks for your support and high praise.
The car was new, clean, and comfortable. The process of collection and drop-off was smooth. Would highly recommend hiring a car with Leisure Rent.
Appreciate your high ranking of us.
The pick up and drop off we’re super easy and the camper itself was just perfect for a couple.
We took the blankets and towels package which is highly recommended.
Ken and the team at LeisureRent were super helpful and highly responsive.
The kitchen space is a little more cramped than other campers we’ve previously rented but aside from the it was a five star experience.
Thanks for taking the time to submit your review, and for the great feedback. See you again sometime.
This was our first time using LeisureRent & we could not have been happier. Ken is very accommodating, a pleasure to deal with & more than happy to answer any questions. The vehicle was very well presented & comfortable with all the mod cons. The pick up & drop off process was a breeze. Unlike some of the bigger companies, LeisureRent are very personable & the contracts are easy to understand with no hidden expenses.
Would not hesitate to recommend them.
Thanks for your kind words Dee, reviews like yours make operating LeisureRent all the more pleasurable.
First time on a motorhome and we loved every bit of it. Perfect for a couple and the vehicle being small it was easy for us to park and go around places. All accessories were provided as mentioned in the package. Will definetely recommend Leisue Rent for people willing to explore Tasmania.
Appreciate your 5 star review, and glad you liked this style of Holiday
We took the campercar on its maiden trip around Tasmania.
This car is a fantastic alternative option. It is so cheap to run and had most of what we needed. It was easier to park and manoeuvre than the bigger vans.
Learning the car was part of our adventure and we loved our experience.
Ken made everything so easy, from booking, answering questions and returning the car
Highly recommend them to other travellers.
Great value for money, excellent service , what more could you ask for?
Seems like our Campercar is a winner - certainly in your eyes Pat, glad you found it suitable for your adventure.
I am really fortunate to have found this little company. The value they offered was amazing in comparison to others and their vehicles were modern and well-maintained. Ken was extremely easy to deal with and concerns, questions and changes were dealt with promptly. They really do mean 'explore tasmania your way' because they don't provide any travel advice and its completely up to your own research to find places to stay and visit, which gave me a complete sense of freedom and adventure that I have never experienced before. The motorhome we had was exceptional and really felt like a home away from home. I am sure this trip will be one of my most memorable trips and I will always keep them in mind if I visit Tassie again.
I'm pleased to read your 'home away from home' was all that you hoped for and more, really appreciate your wonderful feedback as well.
Relatively modern hilux that drove well, albeit a constant squeak from the passenger side door area (not a biggie!)
Although not a huge amount of room inside it worked well for the two of us, and the bed above the cab was comfortable enough and had four pillows. The linen pack had 2 x tea towels, 2 x bath towels as well as 2 extra, slightly smaller, towels and soap. There was a dustpan and brush, a few pegs, dishcloths and dish detergent. The only thing I thought it was missing was a microwave proof bowl, otherwise everything else was there.
It was great that the back was accessible from the cab, but with no aircon, I would not like to stay in this during the warmer months.
We were able to fix that squeak (was the external mirror)!
Appreciate the tip regarding Microwave bowl, glad you found the Motorhome suitable.
Ken at Leisurerent was very helpful & answered all of our messages throughout our trip, the motor-home was very clean & comfortable. We had never travelled in a motor-home before & found the toilet & shower a bit small but that's to be expected in the limited space. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip in our motor-home & I would have no hesitation in recommending them.
I'm pleased you adapted to the motorhome being a first time user and enjoyed your time in Tassie.
I hired a Camper Van for 15 days and had a fantastic time. The Van was great. Ken made everything easy and was very helpful. Thank you Ken and all involved. Happy camper.
Thanks for your feedback Brent - pleased you had a fantastic time.
Our Leisure Rent camper was reliable, comfortable and easy to handle. Everything we needed was provided which made our holiday one to remember. We will definitely rent with these guys again and recommend them to all our friends.
Glad your holiday was memorable and you enjoyed all that the campervan offered.
Owner Ken very responsive to any request from pre booking to on road questions. Nil mechanical issues with vehicle. An issue with fridge which was sorted immediately. Comfortable bed. Great price. Awesome trip.
Glad you had an awesome trip and found the bed comfortable; appreciate your high rating despite the issue with the fridge and hope to see you back in Tasmania sometime soon.
I travelled alone and found the van to be a perfect size. Very clean and had everything I needed . The stove lights from a clicker found in the cutlery draw
Pleased the van fitted with your requirements and everything you needed was provided.
Our camper was a great bed on wheels, we didn’t make full use of the stove n sink but it served its purpose for us. Ken was great to deal with. Our camper did need a wheel alignment though.
Thanks for your feedback and heads up on the wheel alignment!
Great size camper for a couple equipped with everything we needed. Comfortable and perfect for getting around Tassie.
Glad it suited your needs perfectly.
My son and I recently hired the high top 4 birth for 2.5 weeks and it was perfect for our needs. I was hesitant with the space for that long, but was very pleased that it was very comfortable. The van is also well stocked and plenty of blankets for those chilly Tasmanian nights. Communication with Ken was so easy, thank you. Onto planning our next trip!
We certainly look forward to having you return Nicole.
Poor handling in gusty crosswinds, but that comes with the vehicle type. A little more attention to some small maintenance items would be good but now I'm being fussy. Had a great experience with Leisure Rent and would happily use them again.
Pleased your experience was good and we look forward to welcoming you again sometime.
With all the state border closures I left booking my Tasmanian road trip later than normal and found myself in a position where there were basically no campervans left in Tasmania for my travel dates. I came across LeisureRent on a blog and gave Ken a call and thankfully there was one van available for the first week of my holiday.
Ken was incredibly helpful and super responsive which made things so easy! The collection process was very quick (you pay before you arrive and there was no additional paper work to fill out once we arrived). We were handed the keys and away we went!
The vehicle was clean and ran well. Was large enough for 2 people (perfect for a couple), there is an option to have a second bed set up above the main bed but I don't think you'd want to be traveling with anymore than 2 in it unless it was a family with a small child. There was a small kitchen, and although we didn't really cook there was plenty of facilities. Toaster, microwave, kettle all included too which makes things easy if you want to warm up pre-made meals! There was also a little wardrobe section built in which was really convenient for storing clothes including some clothes hangers so you can hang jackets/shirts.
The radio has a USB port which made charging your phone while driving possible, which is always handy when you're using your phone as a GPS (which you'll probably be doing on a road trip). Was unlimited KMs too which was good. Really good value.
It was my first time driving a larger vehicle (albeit the Toyota HiAce isn't that big). Was easy to drive, definitely feels a bit different on open highways with wind compared to smaller cars (feels like you're being blown around a bit more) but you get used to it quickly.
Overall had an amazing time in Tasmania traveling in the campervan and would definitely recommend LeisureRent to anyone looking to hire a van for their trip!
Really appreciate the time you have taken to provide your wonderful review, and the high rating you've given us. Glad we were able to organise the Camper for you!
No vehicle checks is made at pick up and drop off. I've asked and they told me "no need", that was a bit weird.
The pick up and drop off is made by another company.
The camper was alright, however the blanket was mouldy, I've paid extra for towels and sheets but towels were missing. Out of the 4 camp chairs, only one could be used, the 3 others were ripped.
Mechanically, was OK except the direction was always steering far left, annoying.
Well, dropped it off, no check, again "no need".
I was not going to leave any feedback about the company, I just felt like I've been a bit unlucky.
But today, 3 weeks after drop off, I receive an email asking for $1100 of repairs.
When I asked for evidences it was coming from me, I just got a reply: "Our apologies, we picked up the wrong reservation."
Watch out, make sure you take heaps of pics at pick up and drop off.
Super dodgy rental
We'll be in touch with you directly in relation to this.
