Are you planning a road trip to or from Sydney? In this article, we are sharing valuable information for travellers wanting to hire a motorhome in Sydney. Have a look at the different rental companies and a few itinerary ideas in and around Sydney.

Campervan & motorhome rental companies in Sydney

There are a number of rental agencies in Sydney. The most popular ones are the same companies you find in any other Australian city. Overall, they offer the same type of service at fairly similar rates.

The main motorhome rental agencies are:

– Britz
– Apollo Campervans
– Jucy Rentals
– Let’s Go Motorhomes
– Cruisin’ Motorhomes

By the way, these companies generally offer several brands (divided by range). For example, the brand Cheapa Campa belongs to Apollo and Mighty to Britz. So don’t be surprised if you see different logos on the vehicle.

Where in Sydney are rental companies located?

Motorhome rental companies usually aren’t based in the city center, but rather in the suburbs and in the vicinity of the airport. However, as they aren’t accessible on foot from the airport, you will need to take a taxi or use a shuttle.

This is where motorhome rental companies are located in Sydney:

Campervan & motorhome rental prices

Price comparison website

For motorhome rentals in Sydney or any other city in Australia, the easiest way is using a price comparison website such as Motorhome Republic. This gives you an overview of all types of vehicles at the best prices (no additional charge) and the option to book directly. Using a price comparison website is much faster than comparing prices on every individual site yourself. By the way, these comparison websites are not more expensive because they usually get discounts from rental companies.

 

Influencing factors

Motorhome rental prices in Sydney vary. One day you might pay $80/day and another time $200 for the same vehicle. The average is usually around $100. Obviously many factors play a role:

– Type of model (size / number of seats)
– Age (new or older)
– Season
– Duration of the rental
– Booking in advance

Examples

These are a couple of examples so you get an idea:

Rent a 2-seater motorhome in Sydney:
– 2-week rental
– in January (high season)
– Booked 3 months in advance
– Entry-level vehicle (3 to 5 years old)

Price: About $200/ day, about $ 2800 in total (without insurance or extras)

Rent of a 2-seater motorhome in Sydney:
– 4-week rental
– in May (low season)
– Booked 3 months in advance
– Entry-level vehicle (3 to 5 years old)

Price: About $90/ day, or about $2600 for 4 weeks

 

Tips for renting a cheap motorhome in Sydney:
– Book well in advance
– Use a price comparison website
– Choose entry-level vehicles
– Rent for more than 14 days. Daily rates decrease with the length of stay.
If you plan to visit more than one area, you’re generally better off renting for a longer period instead of two short ones.
– Remember to factor in insurance costs.
Since insurances are expensive, the end price quickly goes up.

 

Visit Sydney and surroundings

Sydney

We recommend you to visit the Sydney city center on foot or use public transport because it is difficult to drive. Parking fees are also extremely high plus it is often difficult to find a free parking spot.
