Requirement to hire a vehicle in Australia
Most of the rental companies will require the driver to be over 21 years old. A valid driver’s license (non-probationary, either Australian or international license) is also required to rent a vehicle.
Jucy Rental is one of the rare companies who accepts drivers 18 years and over who hold:
- A Full Driver Licence in English
- An Australian Green P Plate (P2) Licence.
If your Licence is not in English, then you will need an International Driver Permit or a Certified Translation of your licence.
Note : For drivers between 18-20 an underage driver surcharge will apply for rentals and will be quoted at the time of booking.
Why booking with Jucy Rental
Jucy Rental started in 2001 in Auckland, New Zealand with a fleet of 35 rental cars. Despite an epic growth since then, the company is still a family business, owned and operated by Tim and Dan Alpe. Known for their range of innovative green and purple campervans or mini-RVs, the Jucy team design and build those themselves in their own manufacturing division in Auckland and Los Angeles. This way, they can control quality and function right from the outset to offer customers reliable vehicles.
The company has made campervan and car rentals affordable to all travellers and has a range of vehicles available for rent. They are offering a free 24hr roadside assistance for all rentals. So whether you decide to go for a car or a campervan, you will have the time of your life!
But more importantly, Jucy is one of the most reliable rental company. Their vehicles are very well maintained, they have one of the best vehicle insurance and the customer service is really good.

Jucy Rental is offering different models to satisfy all budgets and needs. You can rent one that is suited for 2 travellers or up to 4 if you decide to rent The Compas Campervan (which is fully self-contained!). The equipment differs across all vehicles. Some come with a fridge and microwave, others have an ice box and gas cooker. Some of them are also self-contained, offering you complete freedom.
Should you wish to go for a short trip and travel in a car, you can also rent different models from Jucy. You can either decide to go for a small hatch or a 8 seater van to keep your party together!
Jucy is one of the rare companies that accepts young drivers under 21 to rent a vehicle. Plus, your hire includes unlimited kilometres meaning you can go wherever the road takes you without worrying about it! Moreover, there are many locations from where you can pick up and drop off your vehicle, making your experience even easier!
Discovering Australia or New Zealand in a van is the epitome of freedom! You see the country from another angle, see the countryside and meet the locals! Plus you save money on accommodation and will be part of a great camper community. Renting a van allows you to travel with nearly as much freedom as with a motorhome. The main difference is the level of comfort and equipment. Indeed, most of the vans don’t come with a shower or toilet. But for a short trip or travellers on a budget, it is the perfect alternative.
