Travel bloggers: create a blog post about your road trip
Both professional and semi-professional bloggers can get a discount on campervan hire when they create a blog post about where their Spaceships campervan brought them. Of course, there are some rules as we’re looking for specific content. You need to contact us first to talk about your travel dates and itinerary. We have a limited number of vehicles available for our discount-for-content programme!
To tell you a bit more about the rules of our discount-for-content programme... Your blog post:
Needs to be published on your travel blog (on its own, individual domain) or on an established travel blog.
Has to be an honest review of your Spaceships road trip in Australia. We won’t tell you what or how to write it. That’s totally up to you.
You need to include one link to the official Spaceships Australia website aka this one.
Can be in any language. It doesn’t have to be in English. As travellers, we can understand many languages and otherwise, our mate Google Translate will help us out.
Of course, we’ll check your travel blog on items like the quality of your blog posts, relevancy, engagement and domain authority.
“A picture is worth a thousand words”. Such a cliché but so true. One photo of your #SpaceshipsRoadTrip will show the awesome scenery Australia has to offer and how your Spaceship campervan can get you there.
Contact us today to talk about your travel plans and what kind of photos we’re looking for. Both professional photographers and semi-professionals are invited to contact us. It's all about your skills and the quality of your photos. And we'll reward you accordingly. No worries.

Videographers & TikTokkers: take us with you on your road trip
If creating dynamic content aka videos is more your cup of tea, then get in touch with us as well. Short form or long form, any video-related speciality is great. So if you're a passionate TikTokker, get in touch. If you tell your story in a longer visual format, take the leap as well. Spaceships loves to do collab projects with a wide range of travelling video specialists.
Our video channels and website can always use fresh content. Take us and our fans with you on your road trip (virtually of course, through your videos as we can't fit 1000s of fans in the vehicle) and show them where to go. Be the Australian expert and inspire travellers from all over the world to visit the most interesting places in our amazing country. Create a big video or several short ones of your amazing road trip and inspire others to travel. Apply now for a video creator slot.
Best & worst times of the year to create content in Australia's outer space
Our content schedule is somewhat fixed and somewhat fluid. Content projects can pop up at any time of the year but generally speaking, there are some good months, some not-so-good months and some maybe months.
December - February: no projects will be available
March - April: low need for new content but do contact us!
May - September: the best time of the year for a collab/content creator project
October - November: some projects might be available, contact us.
Seasonality is a major component in the world of Spacy collabs and content creator projects in Australia. If your travel dates are flexible or you're not sure yet when you want to travel, just contact us. We love to chat about creative opportunities, collab projects and more.
How to stand out as a content creator
Based on our experience with successful collaborations, we have some tips to help you stand out from the crowd.
Firstly, don't worry about the number of fans or followers you have. The best content is created by those who prioritize their content over their audience size. We value micro-influencers/content creators who are passionate about their work, so if this sounds like you, please get in touch via the form below.
Secondly, having a presence in the Fediverse is a huge plus. While mainstream social media channels are important, it's also important to keep an eye on the future. The Federated Universe (Fediverse) is the future of social media, and channels like Mastodon, Pixelfed, and Friendica are becoming increasingly popular. If you're already active on these platforms, that's a huge plus for us.
Lastly, be flexible with your travel dates. Content projects can happen at any time, but they're usually scheduled during the low season (not during the busy summer season). If you're open to travelling during off-peak times, you'll have a better chance of being selected for a free content creator road trip.
Creating content is fun and rewarding
As you can see from the information above, we’re always interested in working with a wide variety of content creators. It’s all about your skills, experience and most important your passion for travelling and roadtripping in our amazing country.
Australia has so much to offer. Grab your gadgets or gear, jump into a Spaceships campervan and start creating content for us. But first,contact usto talk about your travel plans. As we have a limited number of vehicles available for the discount-for-content programme and there are a lot of bloggers and photographers out there, we are selective in who we work with.
Not interested in creating content, but you do like discounts?
We happily offer discounts on campervan hire to real content creators, like travel bloggers and photographers, but we also expect real content in return. If you’re just interested in cheap campervan hire or discounted rates, then have a look at our current discount deals.
Dos & don’ts of the content creation programme
We only offer discounts on campervan hire to content creators who have contacted us first. Why? Our content wishlist changes throughout the year. Let’s be honest, who wants to read about the same itinerary or see more photos of that awesome view? There’s so much more to do and see in Australia. And we want to share a lot of different content on our website and social channels.
You need to have your own equipment. We don’t have writing, photography or videography equipment available for hire. We are gadgets freaks ourselves so we couldn’t part with gadgets even if we wanted to.
We’ll never ever tell you how to do your magic of creating awesome content. We only give you a short briefing to manage everyone’s expectations.
As soon as we know some more details about your skills, your travel plans and what you can do for us, we can check availability and see what’s on our content creation wish list at that time of year. Let’s talk,contact us today.
