What to know before renting a campervan in Sydney

How much is campervan hire in Sydney?

Renting a campervan for a week in Sydney starts at $227, according to Motorhome Republic. At the lower end of the scale, you'll get a compact older model of camper that can accommodate up to two people.

The cost of your camper depends on:

    • Length of your trip
    • Number of travellers
    • Time of year
    • Inclusions and extras

When is the best time to hire a campervan in Sydney?

The best time to visit Sydney falls from September to November or March to May. These are the shoulder months on either end of Sydney's peak and low seasons. As a result, travellers get comfortable temperatures, fewer crowds and cheaper travel.

What license do I need to drive a motorhome in Sydney?

The majority of rental companies in Sydney only rent to drivers with a non-provisional drivers license who are 21 or above. Some companies will hire out to those who are 18 and above but may add a young driver's fee or increase the insurance premium.

Are there any age restrictions to driving a campervan in Sydney?

You must be at least 18 years old to drive a caravan in Sydney. However, many companies will only rent to those ages between 21 and 75.

If you're a young driver, aged between 18 and 21, you should be able to rent a campervan from companies such as Travellers Autobarn and Hippie Camper.

Can you park a campervan anywhere in Sydney?

No, parking your motorhome just anywhere can result in a fine. There are plenty of low-cost camping options around the city and free overnight stops beyond the Sydney basin.

How long do I need to travel around Sydney by campervan?

New South Wales offers a plethora of awe-inspiring sights and attractions. Those looking to spend some time in the state starting in Sydney should put aside around 5-7 days. This allows you to head out into the Blue Mountains, north to the central coast and beyond. Our favourite itineraries include:

Do I need special campervan insurance?

When you rent a campervan your service provider will offer a number of different insurance options ranging from basic to comprehensive cover. This won't be caravan insurance specifically but will cover the vehicle that you've chosen to rent. You also have the option to cover yourself with excess rental car insurance.

Tips for driving a campervan in Sydney

There's a skill in tackling the busy streets of Sydney in a campervan. Luckily, once you're out of the city, there's just open roads and winding coastal routes to think about. Here are a few tips to nailing those first moments in your campervan:

  • Time your rental pick-up: Try to time the collection of your campervan with off-peak traffic hours. Driving in Sydney can be nerve-racking enough without having to contend with city traffic.
  • Know the toll roads: Sydney's infamous toll roads are almost impossible to miss. Before you set off, make sure you know where each one is and how to pay the toll charge. To pass over Sydney Harbour Bridge, you'll need an electronic pass, but most companies will already have this installed in their rentals. Some companies do charge administrative fees for using toll roads, so you may want to read the fine print to see whether it's worth changing up your route to avoid tolls.
  • Play it safe with a GPS: Hiring a GPS through your rental company can make navigating the city's winding roads a little easier. Plus it may remind you of the speed limits and any hazards to look out for.
  • Watch out for wildlife: Once you hit the country and outback, keep a lookout for wandering 'roos, wallabies, wombats and deer. Species are especially active at night and are attracted to headlights. Some rental companies won't insure you at night because of this. Make sure to check your insurance before you head off.
  • Ensure you have the appropriate vehicle: Avoid dirt roads unless you have the right 4WD campervan, skills and relevant insurance to do so.
