Campervan Hire Sydney Australia – Who are the leading companies?
The major 5 companies of Britz, Apollo, Mighty, Wicked and Hippie dominate the Australian market. Some of these companies own multiple brands aimed at different segments of the market. When searching for a campervan or motorhome in Australia then you are bound to come across these guys. But there are plenty of others to choose from too.
Some notable mentions in the 2nd tier range of campervan hire companies are Camperman Campervans, and Around Australia Motorhomes.
Camperman has recently been the rising star of the campervan hire companies with a large expansion of fleet and plenty of good deals to try and “make sure we continue to be the best value campervan company in Australia!” Their range includes both older models for the more modest budget as well as newer models for those who are looking for a little more quality in their vehicle. They are well worth keeping an eye out for in the search results when you compare prices on this site.
Around Australia Motorhomes has been around for about 20 years and prides itself on quality vehicles. It has depots in most the major cities, including Sydney, so they are easy to get to. They don’t seem to have much of a web presence and it is unlikely you will find them in a general web search for campervans in Australia. Nevertheless, it is a company that is worth looking in to if you are looking for a slightly higher quality vehicle, however their vechicles will come up in the search results on this site when you do a price search, so do some deep diving into those results when you see them.
Sydney is probably the easiest city in Australia to book and pick up your campervan in. There are more companies there than in any other city, but don’t sit back and think that the type of camper you want is going to be available at the time you want it. When it comes to the busy season of summer (Dec, Jan, Feb) nearly every company will book out at some time. The best idea is do your research early, consider booking with companies that aren’t necessarily that famous and compare prices on as many companies as possible. With over 30 different companies available to choose from with the booking engine on this site, you are sure to find something that will suit both your taste and your budget.
