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!

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.
