Lets DO this

If you are heading to Aussie or NZ for the first time and looking to head out on trips and tours you might not know how things work around here. In a nutshell… there are many trips and tours and mannnyyy high street shops trying to sell them to you all at a ‘special deal’ {if you’ve travelled Asia you know that a special deal just for you isn’t a deal at all… its just to get you in!}.

As an independent Travel Agent that operates online and out of a renovated busin Byron Bay {did we mention that??} we’ll chat with you to help you choose trips that are suited to you and your style of exploring, travel options that’ll suit your budget and vibe and because we don’t have loads of overheads, we can pass our saving on to you and give you epic discounts.

If you think booking direct is always the best option.. Think again, we’re switching up the game and can save you at least 10% off the direct price of trips and transport including camper vans YEWWWW….. It’s the RatPack way. Now enough of us chatting away.. Let’s get in to the REAL talk of how we can help you, UNO.

Who is this RatPack Travel?

So you’ve seen us on Insta, FB, seen us on Where’s Mollie’s Blog or been recommended by a pal who has travelled Aussie and you figured you could really do with saving some $$$$ and booking some stuff for your Aussie/NZ trip? Well first things first, I’m Sammy, I started RatPack Travel as a way to help backpackers get the travel experience they deserve! Feel free to cruise our website, our blog, give us an insta stalk and watch our banter videos.


It starts with a message

All you need to do to get the ball rolllllllingggggggggg is send us a message in one of many ways.. A facebook message to the RatPack Travel page, a DM to our insta, an email, submit a contact form on our site or send us a whatsapp. We don’t bite and are buzzed to help a fellow backpacker, and no question is too small or too stupid, we’ve all been there! Once you send us a message, we’ll message you back with some bants, introduce ourselves and get chatting with you to find out how we can help.


Let’s make it official

Your happy with your trips, your not scared off by our banter. Let’s get you booked in! So how does this work? We’ll send you a secure payment link where you’ll see all of the trips that we have confirmed at the discounted price, the dates you’ll be going and the total amount, from here you’ll be able to securely enter your payment details and ding… you are all good & ready to go! You’ll get a receipt issued and sent to your email address! Next up, we’ll get you booked in to all of your trips and transport and you will receive from us all of your tickets that will have all of the information you need, for example, check in information for tours, contact numbers, and what you need to bring. Don’t panic if this isn’t instant after your payment goes through, we do this manually and we might be on a different timezone but you will get it as soon as possible.

Ben was amazing and went above and beyond to find us amazing deals and exactly what we were looking for. He did it all in record time too! We were very close to our travel date and Ben was doing so much for us so quickly! Definitely recommend

George was fantastic, I came in very vague and he gave me the time and examples to lock in what we were looking for. He found great deals and was easy to talk to - he was able to give tips about the process without putting any pressure. Would recommend using Ratpack.

I had a call with Ryan who was super nice, knowledgable and made me feel really at ease with making my decision. He asked me all about what I want to do and achieve on my trip, although I didn’t really want to pack too much in… nor gave much detail on what I want to do, he gave options and ideas for me to look into. He used his own experience as an example which was really helpful to hear and made me feel like I’m right at home with RatPack, I knew then I was making the right choice by talking to him. He answered any questions I had, even if they seemed like silly questions to ask. The booking process is really easy and straight forward, they do all the hard parts for you. Once Ryan talked me through my options, I made my selection and all I had to do was enter my card details for the deposit and I was done! Thanks to Ryan’s detailed and calm approach I knew I was booking with the right company/team. I can’t wait for the next step!!

George has been amazing. He put together the costings for our trip, and then I changed the dates completely and he redid everything and said it wasn’t a problem. I felt that he worked hard to get me the best deal, advised me which pickup town was the best deal, when was the best time to travel, and how I could save money by adding a day to our trip (yes, it was cheaper to go for 21 days than go for 20!). George sent through mountains of advice on travel destinations, camping sites etc. I would definitely recommend RatPack Travel and George.

The Ratpack team and specifically Ryan f were great for booking our dream New Zealand campervan trip. Ryan worked hard over several days trying to find the best possible deals for us and the communication was great with updates regularly. He was able to get us 2 vans that out did any other quotes that we received and we are really looking forward to our trip with Ratpack being by our side. Thanks a lot Ryan F!

I am so stoked with the service I received from Ryan at RatPack Travel. He was so proactive and on the ball to help me with all my questions and variations. He gave me several options and gave me other things to look at to make sure I had all that I needed. Ryan did all the legwork in following up the availability of the type of van I wanted. If you are wanting to go on a Campervan holiday no matter how long or short, I would recommend RatPack Travel! They will be you support in every step of the process, in the lead up and while on the road. Thanks Ryan! You're a legend! They are a one stop shop when it comes to sourcing campervans and motorhomes from different providers! I nearly forgot to say - he got me a great deal on a newer model. ;)

Thijs and Gemma were just so lovely to communicate with and explained everything so well. Booked us our campervan seamlessly, and with a great deal too 😊 10/10 service from them both!! Couldn’t recommend more! 😊

Ben was super helpful, easy to deal with and always got back to all my questions nice and quickly, with all the campervan options out there we really didn’t know what one to go with but Ben did all the searching for us and made the whole process really simple.

Amazing and outstanding customer service, Ryan exceeded all expectations, he and his team found the perfect deal for us, if you are looking for renting a campervan in NZ or Oz, don’t look for more! Go straight to them and you’ll see you are in the best hands! 🙌

Greg was superb! We told him what we wanted in a camper van. Even with less than two weeks notice, he didn’t disappoint. We loved our camper van and it was perfect for the two of us!
