But some of the deals from DriveNow are pretty attractive.
There are over 2,500 RV parks in Australia. And too many drycamping opportunities to count. So when we visit Australia, we're definitely going exploring by RV. Or "campervan" as they call if down under!
How about one like this...
Prices usually work out to around $75 a day depending on what size rig you're looking for. But if you incorporate one of their "one-way" relocation specials into the equation, you can get a substantial discount.
For example, they recently had a one way deal from the island of Tasmania to Brisbane. Only $5 a day, plus you get free transportation on the ferry for the vehicle and one person. They give you 6 days at $5 a day, and then you pay $75 a day for any extra days. If you did a two week vacation, it would work out pretty cheap.
Nice deal if you can incorporate it into your plans.
But Australia is such a large place. If you only had a short time, you'd have to pick one section and explore it.
The other option of course is to get a car and visit car rental gold coast airport especially if you need a car rental right from the airport. Then, you could explore with a cheaper fuel option and perhaps stay with couchsurfing hosts to save money.
Lots of options for camping and exploring in Australia. One day, we'll make it there!
