Often tagged as one of the cheapest Australian campervan hire companies, Real Value Campervans is an aggregator of best quality vehicles from a third party campervan hire.
Real Value Campervans is an individual entity that sources out their fleet from a different company, and in this case, from Cheapa Campa. The company is winning by making a margin on the wholesale price given to them and the discounts they get from not shouldering the maintenance costs. In return, they offer cheaper rates to renters with same quality vehicles.
Just like the array of vehicles being offered by Cheapa Campa, Real Value Campervans also provides the same set of campervans― 2/3 berth Hitop, 2 berth Camper, 4 berth Camper, 6 berth Camper, Trailfinder Camper, and 4WD Camper. All vehicles on fleet are newer models, usually 3- 5 years old. Most campervans have toilet and shower on board.
Real Value Hitop
Great for couples bringing only one child, the Hitop campervan lets you save money on a campervan hire without compromising a quality road trip. Featuring a Toyota model with a 2.4L Petrol engine, travellers will be greeted with simple yet significant camping essentials like microwave, 2 hob cooker, refrigerator, sink, double bed and a single bed.
Just for 2 adults, this Ford/ VW campervan is a nice option for those wanting a cozier and fancier road trip. There's a toilet and shower in it, as well as a large double bed and a fitted out kitchen with cutlery and crockery. However, do take note that children are not allowed in this campervan as it is not equipped with booster seats.
The only option in the 4 berth category is this Ford or VW motorhome that can accommodate up to 4 adults or couples with 2 kids. The vehicle is suitable for larger families because it comes with booster seats. There aren't much additions with this motorhome aside from the extended sleeping capacity.
Travelling with kids or friends can be difficult as there are only few campervans with fitted child seats, but with this 6-berth motorhome you can enjoy a convenient vacation on wheels. With internal access and outside awning, comfort is definitely a priority. And of course, the vehicle is furnished with all needed camping essentials like bigger fridge, 3-burner gas stove, microwave, sink, hot water, and of course, shower and toilet.
For the adventurous at heart, this Trailfinder Camper is your choice. There's an awning for your side trips and a pop-up roof for a more roomy sleeping session on top. But unlike the normal campervans and motorhomes that have unlimited mileage, this vehicle, along with the 4WD camper, only comes with a free 300 mileage per day.
For an outback adventure on the open Australian roads, choose this 2 berth 4WD camper that is fully stocked with camping amenities, well except for shower and toilet. Instead, you are provided with a solar bag to cater your needs. Aside from the spacious interiors, it is styled with a pop-up roof for ventilation.
As to the insurance, the excess differs on the rented vehicle. For both Hitop and 2 berth ST, excess is AUD $2700.00. For the 4 berth, 6 berth, 4WD and Trailfinder camper, the excess is AUD $5000.00. You can limit the liability and the bond by availing the insurance option at an additional amount per day. The insurance option allows you to use certain facilities for free like camping tables and chairs, bedding kits, linens, and more.
Though not as renowned as Cheapa Campa, Real Value Campevans is definitely something to consider if you're on a tight budget. Sometimes, lots of research before renting out a campervan cuts out your expenses.
Real Value Campervans may be dominated by bigger, notable companies, but it definitely offers some of the best campervan prices in Australia. Same quality vehicles at a discounted rate pretty attractive.
