Australia FAQ

Why should i travel to Australia?

Australia is a massive, diverse and influential country with stunning native scenery and beautiful wild life parks. why shouldn't you?

What’s the difference between Standard Insurance and All-Inclusive Insurance?

If you opt for Standard Insurance, (depending on which company you have chosen for your campervan) you may have to pay up to $7500AUD bond. This amount is deducted from your credit card. On top of this is the 2% credit card fee. When the camper is returned, (subject to inspection) the bond is refunded to the credit card, but this can take 5-7 working days. However, the credit card fee is non-refundable and if there have been major changes in the exchange rate, you may end up paying more than if you took out All-Inclusive Insurance.

Different companies will have different Terms and Conditions. Read your quote carefully to see what is required. Please familiarize yourself with the conditions before you book.

What’s the smoking policy in Australia?

Smoking regulations in Australia differ from state to state, but there are some general rules. For example cigarettes have to be packed in plain packages, tobacco advertising is illegal all over the country and smoking is prohibited in “cinemas and theatres, most forms of public transport and in food preparation areas […], enclosed public places such as restaurants and shopping centres, pubs and nightclubs and in cars with children “ (http://www.health.gov.au/internet/main/publishing.nsf/Content/tobacco-envt )

For state related restrictions, please refer to http://www.allianz.com.au/life-insurance/nsw-bans-building-entrance-smoking

Do I need a special drivers licence to drive in Australia?

Your overseas drivers licence must be valid.  Your licence can’t be suspended, expired or revoked from your country of issue.

If your Drivers Licence is printed in English, then you don’t need to do anything else.  You need to provide an English translation of your licence if it is not in English.  There are regulations as to who can provide the translation.  It must be translated by:

  • “The Community Relations Commission of NSW (previously the Ethic Affairs Commission). For more information please visit the CRC website 
  • The Free Translating Service provided by the Department of Social Services (DSS) or previously the Department of Immigration and Citizenship, now the Department of Immigration and Border Protection (DIBP). The free translation service is only available to eligible people. Visit the DSS website for more information.” (source: http://www.rms.nsw.gov.au/roads/licence/moving-to-nsw.html#Internationaldriversandriders )

Need more information?  Please visit: http://www.australia.gov.au/content/driving-with-an-overseas-licence

Do I get a refund if I drop my campervan off early?

No. Again, read your Terms and Conditions very carefully.

Are there any regulations when taking groceries from one state into another?

Yes, there are very strict regulations when crossing from one state into the next. Please refer to the following website to inform yourself about products which you can or cannot import and a list of items which have to be declared. Please note that your failure to adhere to these rules can result in hefty fines.

I would like to plan some walks and tramps while in Australia. Can you recommend a good website?

For short walks, we recommend the website http://short-walks.com.au/ Here you can sort the walks by different categories and also by state.

For longer walks, we recommend http://www.australia.com/explore/itineraries-ideas/walking-australia.aspx , the official tourism website for Australia. You will find information on popular tracks and the state you’ll find them in is usually listed as well. The most popular multiple day walks you’ll find here: http://www.australiangeographic.com.au/outdoor/adventure/2010/04/top-10-australian-multi-day-walks/

Do I get a refund if I cancel my booking?

Please read the Terms and Conditions of your Motorhome Company carefully. Deposits are non-refundable. Depending on how many days out you are from travelling, you may be entitled to some refund.

What’s the WiFi coverage like?

Australia is a huge country, so it is hard to make general statements. Please note that if you choose to buy a plan for your phone or rent an internet modem with your rental company (the 3 main providers are Tesltra, Optus and Vodafone), the coverage in more remote areas will be limited. A lot of free WiFi is available in Australia when you go into a café or a fast food restaurant. Often you have to buy at least a drink to get the password. You can also check whether your hotel or hostel offers free WiFi. In many states public libraries will provide internet access as well, but you will need to own a membership card for this. (It’s free to apply for, but you’ll need a residential address)

Where am I allowed to camp?

As this question comes up frequently, we have dedicated a whole page to camping rules in Australia. Please check it out by clicking more info.

What Duty Free allowances can I bring into Australia?

Every adult over the age of 18 years may bring 2.25 litres of alcohol and 50 cigarettes or 50 grams of tobacco duty-free into the country. You can also bring general goods up to a value of 900 AUD into the country. Everything that has been owned by you for 12 months or more can be brought into the country duty-free as well. Please note that these allowances can change any time. It is your responsibility to check the current allowance before you travel on the following webite: http://www.customs.gov.au/site/page4352.asp

How and what should I pack?

Don’t bring too much and don’t pack in rigid suitcases! Soft bags will store more easily in a campervan. Most campsites have washing machines and dryers, so you will be able to catch up with washing. These usually run on $1 and $2 coins, so make sure you have a supply of gold coins.

Make sure you have a good pair of shoes that are comfortable, especially if you plan on going for walks or tramps. Pack a water-proof jacket (just in case). Make sure you have a good hat and sunscreen.

Can I extend the rental period once I have picked up my campervan?

This depends on the availability of the vehicle. You would need to contact the company you have hired from and talk to them.

How does Pick-up and Drop-off work?

On page 2 of your booking confirmation, you will see the Depot address of where the vehicle needs to be picked up from. Most companies do not offer a transfer from the airport, so please organise your own transport. Some companies will reimburse your taxi fare to the depot if you have booked the all-inclusive option. Please double check on your confirmation whether this applies or not. Allow at least 90 minutes for Pick-up and 60 minutes for a drop-off. This allows time for the Customer Service Team to introduce you to the vehicle and how it operates on pick-up and for an inspection of the vehicle at drop-off.

How many customers would take out the All-Inclusive Insurance?

95% of our customers take out the All-Inclusive Insurance, and the other 5% wished they did. For peace of mind, we recommend that all customers take out the All-Inclusive Insurance. Please read your Terms and Conditions carefully so you know exactly what is covered.

I really like your price, so how do I book?

On page 2 of your quote, you will see a BOOK HERE button. Fill in the booking link. A 9 NZD booking fee applies. After we received your booking order (booking link), we will send you your booking confirmation. A deposit is required, which we'll deducted from your credit card. This varies between 10 and 25% of the whole amount. Please note that we deduct the amount in NZD, so it will not match the amount on your booking confirmation, which is stated in AUD. Depending on the company you have chosen, the final payment needs to be paid 40 days before pick-up or directly on pick up. We will let you know how the final payment needs to be made.

Please read your quote carefully and be aware of the surcharge costs, if you decide to book the standard insurance (one way fee, credit card fee) etc.

Do I need any vaccinations when I travel to Australia?

In general you do not need any vaccinations when travelling in Australia. Make sure that the standard vaccinations (diphtheria, tetanus, measles, mumps, rubella, chickenpox, polio, hepatitis B) are up to date. If you are entering the country from a country with yellow-fever infections, make sure that you can provide proof of your current yellow-fever vaccination. Please note that injuries resulting from close contact with poisonous animals are rather common, so you should pay attention to any warning signs.

Do I need to apply for any special travel visa?

Please note that you need a valid Visa to enter Australia, even if you are only transiting through Australia. You can use the Visa finder function in the government’s website to see which Visa you need to apply for. http://www.immi.gov.au/Visit/Pages/Visit.aspx

What is the best time to travel?

In Australia this depends on the area you want to visit. For reasons of simplicity we have divided Australia among the conventional lines of a compass into North, South, East, West and the Middle (also known as the red centre).

The North: the best time to travel is in the Australian autumn and winter, from May to September. Avoid the time between October and April, as monsoons hit the Northern coast at this time of the year.

The East and the West: Due to relatively mild and settled temperatures, these areas can be visited all year round. The best time is in autumn (March-May) or in spring (September-November), as the summers can be hot and the winters cold.

The South: The best time is in summer (December-February). Avoid the winter as it gets wet, windy and cold.

The Middle: The best time is during the winter months (June-August), as the days are not quiet as sweltering. Please note that the nights tend to be really cold.

For more information on Australian weather, please visit our weather page.

What are the fuel prices like?

As everywhere, the fuel prices are constantly changing. The following website gives you weekly reports on fuel prices and can be sorted by region.

http://www.aip.com.au/pricing/facts/Weekly_Petrol_Prices_Report.htm

Where do I have to watch out for poisonous animals?

In general the areas where you need to watch out will be signposted with warning signs. Snakes: As long as you do not disturb them (this includes stepping on them), they are unlikely to attack you. When you see one, it’s better to quietly back off though.

Crocodiles: Saltwater crocodiles are particularly common on the North Australian coast. They can be found in rivers, creeks and estuaries as well though and you should watch out for warning signs and heed any advice given by locals on where not to swim.

Box jellyfish: Just as crocodiles, these are mainly found on the coast of North Australia and you’re most likely to encounter them from November through to April, but precautions like “stinger suits” should be taken during any month.

Insects: The most common are flies and mosquitos. There tend to be fewer flies in the cities and more in the outback and in coastal areas. Make sure that you have enough insect repellent such as “Aerogard” and “Rid” with you. The mosquitos are very common in the North, especially around wetland areas. Make sure that you cover your arms and legs, as the bites can transmit diseases.

Spiders : the most commonly known poisonous spider is the deadly funnel-web spider, which is found in the state of New South Wales. Other dangerous spiders include the red tail and the white tail spider. If you get bitten, please seek medical attention immediately.

For further information, please see our webpage on poisonous animals as well.

How easy is a campervan to drive?

It’s just like driving a car. Where-ever you pick your campervan up from, the customer services team will take the time to talk you through your vehicle and show you around. Take a few minutes to familiarise yourself with the vehicle before you set off.

How do I enquire on your website?

Fill in our on-line enquiry form with your dates, pick-up and drop-off location, the number of people travelling and which type of vehicle you are interested in. If you are travelling with children, please include their ages in the additional information field as there are campers which are better suited for travelling with children. We will then forward you a quote that would be suitable to your requirements.

Can you recommend a good App that will help us as we travel around?

There is one app we recommend you give a try. It’s called WikiCamps Australia. It comes with a 14 days free trial version, so that you can use it for free if you’re on a short trip. The app lists plenty of camp grounds, caravan parks, day stops, points of interest, information centres, public toilets and public dump points all over Australia. There are often reviews by other travellers which help you finding the best spot for the night. And one of the best things in a country as vast as Australia: It is fully functional when you’re offline, too!

Do I need to pre-book a campsite?

This depends on the area and the time of travel. In the peak season for the area you’re visiting it can be better to pre-book, but most of the time you will be fine without booking a campsite in advance. Especially around the holidays it is recommended that you book a campsite.

Where is my nearest consulates or embassy?

If you need to contact your Embassy or consulate, please refer to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade website for a full list of foreign representative to Australia. http://www.dfat.gov.au/embassies.html

What are the food prices like in Australia?

As everywhere in the world, the food prices in Australia vary. The website http://www.numbeo.com/cost-of-living/country_result.jsp?country=Australia gives you a good overview of food prices in Australia. You can even sort it by main cities in Australia to get a more precise idea. Generally food in Australia tends to be rather expensive in comparison to Europe.

What travel documents will I need when I go to collect the campervan?

You will need your Drivers Licence and Credit Card. Remember, your Drivers Licence must be in English or be an approved translation.

Do you recommend booking a 4WD vehicle?

This depends which roads you want to drive on while you’re in Australia. Australia offers some of the greatest off-track routes in the world. (If you need an idea: http://www.australiangeographic.com.au/travel/destinations/2014/03/best-4wd-trips-in-australia) Please note that there are some 4WD campervans available, but that the insurance for these is a lot higher than for a 2WD camper, so the fun on outback roads comes at a price. If you are travelling along the standard routes (e.g. Sydney to Melbourne or Cairns to Brisbane), you will be perfectly fine in a standard camper, but for an off-road adventure we recommend that you book a 4WD camper. Always double-check that you will be allowed to take the car on a certain off-road track, as the rental companies need to give you permission (often depending on the weather forecast) for some roads. Please read the Terms and Conditions of your rental company carefully to see what your insurance will cover and which roads might be restricted or forbidden.

Can I drive campervans in Australia if I am 18 years old?

This will depend on which company you end up booking with. As a general rule, 18-20 year olds will be able to drive the cheaper, back-packer style of campervans, but not the large 4 or 6 berth campers. The Australian companies which offer a rental from 18 years onwards are Mighty (selected vehicles only), Hippie Camper, Travellers Autobarn and Jucy.

The company Camperman allows you to rent a camper from 19 years onwards. If you do fall in the 18-20 year age group, please let us know at the time of your inquiry as some companies charge a higher insurance excess for this age group.
