George of RatPack has been amazing! So so responsive and helpful in finding really good campers for great deals! We’ve booked camper vans for Australia and New Zealand through RatPack and the process couldn’t have been easier!

Fantastic experience. I was pretty overwhelmed with trying to sort things myself, and Anna just cleared the path for me. She was so patient and helpful, now we are all sorted and booked 24 hours later.

Amazing company that takes all the hassle out of booking a camper-van for your travels in Australia and NZ. Within 2 hours of speaking to Ben we’d found and booked the best option for us, for a cheaper price than we’d ever expected! If you’re looking to book a camper-van for NZ or Australia, RatPack should be the first people you speak to!

My Friend and I have just booked our van for our New Zealand trip in September. Ryan was amazing and could have not been more helpful. Ryan has made the process straight forward and extremely stress free. If it wasn’t for him we wouldn’t be taking a dream trip. Thankyou again

Essential Tips for Campervan Hire in Perth

  • Keep grub simple. Maybe prep some bites beforehand to save on cooking time.
  • Mix driving with decent breaks to explore and keep the energy up.
  • Snap your journey or jot down notes. It’s not just about memories but also about the lessons and laughs along the way.

Packing Essentials

  • Clothes for all occasions
  • Must-have campervan gear like maps and safety kits.
  • Don’t skimp on the campsite vibes – bring BBQ gear, chairs, and maybe a hammock for those lazy afternoons.

Campervan Rental Perth Checklist – Things to Think About

First-timer or seasoned nomad, these pointers keep the good times rolling when renting a camper in Perth:

Some boring but essential things:

  • Ensure essential camper items such as maps, oil, coolant, levelling ramps, safety vests, and adapters are checked and packed before starting your journey.
  • Check your campervan’s tires for proper pressure and tread depth, and be prepared with a spare tire and the knowledge of how to change it if needed.

We like to keep our RatPackers safe and out of trouble:

  • Never drink and drive to maintain proper judgement and coordination, avoiding accidents and legal consequences.
  • Avoid using your phone while driving to prevent distractions; stop the vehicle first if you must use it.
  • Take regular breaks to combat fatigue and consider sharing driving duties to ensure all drivers have a chance to rest.
  • Wear your seatbelt at all times and make sure all passengers do the same as it is crucial for safety and typically required by law

These sound obvious but it’s so easy to forget when your dying to get on the road:

  • Regularly check your campervan’s blind spots before changing lanes or turning to prevent collisions.
  • Adhere to speed limits to prevent accidents pick up speed on your surfboard not in your camper.
  • Drive cautiously, particularly in unfamiliar or challenging conditions, and ensure your route is planned in advance. – Some of our fave locations linked below.
  • Familiarise yourself with the campervan’s controls and the manual to effectively operate the vehicle and manage emergencies. – Check out our bank of FAQ style videos on IG here
  • Considering the seasonal differences in Perth, such as the very hot summers! When it’s hot it’s boiling! All we’re gonna say is Think Water – Drink Water 😂
