Absolutely brilliant customer service from both Ryan & Sammy. Their attention to detail, care and patience in getting the right vehicle booked was very much appreciated. Nothing was too much trouble and every question was given a thorough and considered response. I am so excited about the upcoming and long awaited trip with my kids.

Excellent communication with Jules and easy booking with good choice and prices. Especially as we are booking over the Christmas period. Totally recommend using them. Thank you.

Was initially a little wary of RatPack, due to the name, but with my dealings with George I am very happy with booking my camper for travel. I found a cheap quote and George went above and beyond to match as closely as possible a better all round deal. Very personable, and no hassles. I would recommend checking out RatPack if you want a stress free, value holiday in Oz, you might get lucky and have George help you out.

Top quality customer service from James and the whole team, from helping us choose what van best suited us, to walking us through all the finer details, it really took the stress off the whole trip so can’t thank them enough! Would highly recommend to anyone who’s looking to do any sort of van rental trip across aus.

working with Ryan through our booking process has been great, he has been attentive to our "silly requests" and ensured all boxes were ticked and saved us the stress of wondering if we have the right camper! Thanks Ryan! You nailed it! Looking forward to our trip!
