Meet the Ratpack

We’re no ordinary travel company, RatPack is formed from a group who are all young experienced travellers – between us we’ve covered every inch of Australia and New Zealand.

We’ve all worked, travelled and experienced life on this side of the world, we’ve been there and done it and now we want to give you our tips and tricks.

Half our crew work on Oz time and the other half work on Euro time meaning we are here to answer your travel questions 24 hours a day!

Amazing people and support provided. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for tours or campervan rentals. They helped us on such a personal level and really wanted to match the best campervan for our group. Communication was always fast, efficient and clear. Major thank you to the entire team and especially Jules, Zan and Tyla for finding our perfect campervans!

Really great, friendly booking service - easy to chat to, didn’t mind me changing our dates - called when we arranged to. Really impressed! Definitely use these guys if you’re not sure where to start with booking campers!

Today we booked a camper van for an upcoming road trip through Ratpack Travel. I can’t recommend this company enough!! having no previous experience with booking long road trips the process was so smooth and we got an amazing deal ! Tyla was our travel expert and she offered great advice and recommendations for our trip, I look forward to booking all of our excursions with her once we know our itinerary :) Thank you Ratpack Travel

Tyla and Mikey at Rat Pack Travel are the absolute bomb! They secured me the very last, I kid you not, campervan in allll of NZ in February! Their communication and support were friendly, accommodating, fast and overall superb! Would recommend them to anyone needing personal travel assistance and great prices! I will definitely be using their services again!

Tyla and the RatPack Travel crew were absolutely amazing at sorting out and finding us a campervan which suited our needs, after our booking fell through with another company. Tyla was super easy to deal with, provided answers to all of our questions and even gave us recommendations on awesome places to visit in NZ. Would 100% use them again and will definitely be telling anyone who is travelling to NZ in the future to hit them up!

Didn't think there was any chance of finding a van until I got in contact with Mikey from RatPack Travel. Within 15 minutes of me sending my details through, I got a call from him telling me that although almost all they vans were booked at that time, he might be able to find one. Sure enough, 10 minutes later he sent through 3 vans at different price ranges and explained the options. He even went as far as looking at domestic flights for me and his work overall resulted in me saving over $3k on a van. I honestly thought my planned van trip was a lost cause but Mikey proved that wrong. Thank you so much RatPack for everything you've done, I owe my upcoming adventure all to you!

RatPack to the rescue!!! Mike actually literally 100% saved the day for me and my family today. We were scrambling to secure a campervan (and a car!) for our road trip next month, and thank goodness we finally got it booked! Thank you so much Mike for being so kind, helpful and patient. We couldn’t have done it without you! Give this dude a raise 👏🏼

I'm very happy with the help of the experienced Ratpack team in planning my Australia travels, 5 stars for their personal approach at no extra costs. They reached out to me by phone to advise me on where to go (and where not to go, also useful when having limited travel time) and gave tips on the best trips for Fraser Island and Whitsundays. I could book through them without having to pay anything for their service. Any questions they answered quickly via WhatsApp.

Zan was amazing at walking me through all the van options available to hire in NZ. We were very last minute in organising our trip and Zan was so amazing and did all the hard work for us. He also reassured us with his inside knowledge of the van companies and knowing what vans were available for us to hire. I am so grateful for the hard work and extra effort the team went through to help us out in such short notice. Definitely will be using them again!

Massive help finding a deal for a camper that isn't even listed as available online. Great customer service from Mike: genuine, helpful and fair!

Tyla was so helpful getting our camper booked for New Zealand. Not only did she lock in a great deal for us she also gave us lots of advice and pointers from her own experience, which was really appreciated. Thank you so much Tyla! Would highly reccomend this service.

Had a great experience with Mikey booking our caravan for New Zealand. A few quick phone calls and we had a van secured! RatPack Travel is super useful and saves you a lot of time and research, highly recommend.

Quick and easy. Mikey was brilliant and helped us through every step of the way. After looking at countless websites Ratpack found us the best deal and we were saved so much stress. Would definitely recommend!
