It's available through DriveNow and costs just $5 a day to hire. For that, you'll receive a Big Six camper to drive and sleep in. The catch is you must hire it for a minimum of three days, but for that you do get $100 of fuel and 1,512 kilometres thrown in for free.

Book it for the minimum days and that's just $15 car hire!

Couple that with flights back on Sunday night for $151 with Virgin Australia (according to Skyscanner) and you're paying just $166 for your trip, providing you use your campervan as your accommodation.
