Do you want to add an additional driver? You will need to contact the car rental company where the additional driver will need to present their driver's licence with the primary driver.

Vehicle types

Before you rent a campervan in Australia ...

It is essential to figure out if you will need a fully functioning kitchen and bathroom in order to be self-sufficient, or if you will be travelling to areas where there are amenities. If you are going to areas in Australia that are less populated, it may be a good idea to hire a self-contained campervan. Alternatively, if you are planning to stop at campervan parks on your trip, you may consider renting a smaller campervan to save money.
