Bob’s Guide to Scoring the Cheapest Campervan Hire Deals…
Ol’ Bob knows what it’s like to be on the bones of his ass. The daily financial struggle is something a lot of us have to contend with. However – every man, woman and pony is entitled to enjoy the campervan life at least once in their life. So if you’re strapped for cash, but still want a kickass holiday, here’s a guide to the cheapest campervan hire prices in Australia over a typical calendar year.

If you really want the best deal on campervan hire, do a bit of research when booking. Take note of these tips:
Avoid Christmas Peak Season:
Between 24th December to 7th January is by the far the most expensive time of the year – all across Australia. It’s summer, it’s Christmas Holidays, it means you will pay a HEAP more for your rental over this period.
Avoid Easter & Public Holidays:
Easter is the next most expensive time of year to hire a campervan. In Australia, Easter is a long, long weekend – both Friday and Monday are public holidays, so most rental places will either be closed or will charge like a wounded bull!
School Holidays & Uni Breaks:
Take note of School Holiday periods and University semester breaks, prices often increase during these times with demand.
There are some major music festivals in Australia that see demand for campervan hire soar. ‘Splendour in the Grass’ in Byron Bay is one particular festival where 30,000 music-goers migrate in July every year from Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane.
4WD Hire Seasons:
4WD Hire in the top-end (Darwin, Cairns, Broome & Alice Springs) can get pretty expensive over the dry season (May-October). It’s worth considering renting a 4WD on the shoulder of the dry season to save quite significantly on hire costs. From November to April you can forget about heading too far into the outback as temperatures can get as high as 50 degrees Celsius. While the top end usually floods from excessive rain between Dec and March – it’s not worth the risk, so best to avoid 4WD hires in Darwin over this time.
Mighty Campers is an Australian-owned campervan rental company with several locations around Australia. They’re kind of placed at the top end of the budget campervan rental market, with a range of hi-top campers and motorhomes to suit all budgets. This particular campervan is called the ‘Highball’, which also happens to be a delicious Japanese whisky drink. The Mighty Highball Camper is a sturdy ol’ camper, that’s for sure. But Bob’s always sayin “Why on earth did those marketin’ hombres call it a ‘Highball’? It ain’t a drink – it’s a got damn campervan. Fucking marketing people”…
Ol’ Bob ‘s been around the campervan circuit for as long as anyone can remember. Hell, ol’ Bob was even born in a campervan, but don’t you dare call him trailer trash. He’s seen campervan hire come in all shapes & sizes – and he reckons this Mighty Camper is pretty darn spectacularish…
They do one way hires and have a heap of storage space, so if you feel like skippin’ town and ditchin’ that loser boyfriend of yours – hire a Mighty Highball Camper and get outta town. Go see Bob – he knows how to treat a woman…after all, a man don’t have 15 kids to 17 different women and not learn a thing or two…
