Hey, I'm Reuben

Age: 26

Where's home?

Exeter, Devon! But it hasn’t been home for a little while now. Made the move to Aus in 2019 and haven’t looked back. Happily now calling Byron Bay home, time to recharge the crystals…

Languages spoken:

English, until I've had a few bevvies and then I can talk a bit of Spanish!

Time spent in Australia:

2 years so far and loving every minute of it!

A little about me:

After finishing uni in Manchester and a quick stint in investment banking, I decided to take a short break before selling myself to the corporate world. Fast forward 3 and a half years and the break is going strong. Surfing every day seems to suit me pretty well!

Why is Aussie so special...

Oz is INCREDIBLE! My favourite spot though has to be K'Gari AKA... Fraser Island is my stand-out spot. 4x4’s with a big group of people seeing amazing sites and followed by a party - epic.

Fraser is my stand-out, but my overall favourite thing to do is explore the national parks winding up the East Coast. Taking a van in-land and avoiding the crowds, finding incredible campsites next to lakes, waterfalls, mountains. There’s something about waking up with no phone service next to a waterfall that can’t be beaten.

And Finally...

If you are considering travelling Aussie or NZ – do it! I have no regrets whatsoever about travelling and it’s the best thing I’ve ever done.

Such an awesome experience booking our motor home for our upcoming Xmas holiday to Tasmania. Ben was super helpful, friendly and also managed to secure us a fantastic price. Highly recommend the team at Ratpack for your next holiday adventure.

Gregg assistance in finding me & my sister a campervan for our holiday in New Zealand was amazing. He responded quickly to my requests and ensured that I know my options. Can't wait for our holiday! Thank you Gregg and the rest of the RatPack Travel family!

The best price, fast and professional service. I'm not going to look for campervan on my own anymore. It is so much easier with you guys, grazie!

These guys are amazing! Honestly, they had so much patience with me as I had to chop and change dates and places and they were absolutely fantastic to deal with. Thanks so much to Tammy and all the guys! Cheers.

10/10 would recommend for helping book your trip. Jules really took the stress out of organising our 25 day trip around the east coast of Australia. She really went above and beyond helping us secure the most amazing campervan which completely suited our needs and had all our ‘wishlist’ items included (and bonus was within budget 🤩). Plus she was kind enough to share a map of places to see to help with our itinerary planning. Thanks again 🙏🏻 can’t wait for our trip.

We had a great experience with Ben! Thank you!

James was extremely helpful in helping us organise our trip around New Zealand. Helped us to find the best price for renting a campervan. Extremely helpful! Would definitely recommend:)

We decided to hire a van quite late and thanks to Ryan we managed to secure one. Ryan was super helpful and patient, thank you so much.

James was very helpful and sorted us out quickly for what we wanted, given how soon we wanted to head off. Very efficient and patient.

Cannot thank George enough for all his help booking a motorhome for our trip to New Zealand in October. Got an amazing deal for us & sent us tips on where to visit & stay along the way.

Unreal customer service! Took all the stress away from organising a van myself, made the process so easy. Highly recommend!

Ryan was extremely helpful and attentive, in getting us as good a deal as possible. Having someone else doing the chasing up for all our needs to make our trip problem free saves so much stress. I will leave a review once we have taken our trip too.
