Tasmania

Tasmania offers a unique experience of Australia compared to the mainland. The climate and environment are different, and the island is less populated.

If you want to getaway to see an area of Australia that has its own unique beauty, then travelling to Tasmania s a must.

You can fly into Hobart or Launceston and hire a campervan or a motorhome from either of those locations.

You will have the option to explore the beaches, cities, suburbs, forests, and farmlands across Tasmania.

The state is home to a rich history, if you choose to explore the local culture.

How old do you have to be to hire a campervan in Hobart?

Most of the campervan or motorhome companies will require that the driver is 21 years or over in age to drive the vehicle. You can also contact the hiring depot to see if they may be flexible with the driver’s age. However, they are likely to add on a surcharge for being under 21.

Do you need a credit card to hire a campervan or motorhome in Tasmania?

Yes. You will need to have a credit card that you can use at the time of pick-up. Please be aware that you may have a fee hold on the card as a bond or security for the vehicle.

You will need to ensure that the credit card that you are using has enough funds so the hiring depot can process the transaction when you arrive.

Can you do freedom camping with your campervan or motorhome in Tasmania?

It depends on where you go. You can find some places where you can freedom camp and others where you will need to pay a fee to camp. Thankfully, the cost to camp at a location is reasonable and can be as little as $5 per night.

You can find more information on the Tasmanian Parks website.
