If you've encountered the terms "relocation rentals" and "one-way rentals," you might assume they're the same. However, there's a big differrnce. Both options let you pick up a vehicle in one place and return it elsewhere, but their flexibility levels aren't the same. One-way campervan hire at Spaceships gives you unlimited days and kilometres. This provides you with the ultimate road trip freedom. You can explore the outer space of Australia at your own pace.
In contrast, relocation deals have strict constraints on duration and prescribed routes. Therefore, if you're seeking a travel experience free from time constraints or specific path demands, a one-way rental would be the best choice for you. You can always book an amazing one-way road trip with more included for free.

This means that you're driving a Spaceships campervan from one location to the other. You'll get a massive discount and you'll get enough days to make the trip in a relaxed way.
Travel cheap with our campervan relocations
Campervan relocation is an extremely cost-effective and fun way to check out parts of Australia you haven't been to yet. If you have not explored much of Australia, then this is a fantastic way to get out there and experience it.
However, relocations don't happen that often as they are "mistakes" in our planning. It means that campervans have ended up in locations where we don't need them at the moment. Then we offer them as a special relocation deal at a massive discount or just a few dollars a day. Just to get these campervans to the right location.
Is a relocation the same as a one-way deal?
No, not at all. A one-way trip is where you pick up a campervan at location A and drop it off at locations B. At Spaceships, we don't charge a one-way fee so the price of a one-way trip isn't inflated with extra fees. We don't like hidden fees so we don't have them. On a one-way road trip you can travel for as many days as you like. Just go to our advanced yet easy to use booking system to see our low prces on one-way road trips.
A relocation is only for travelling for a fixed amount of days. The number of days is the minimum number of days needed to be able to relocate a campervan from A to B in a safe way. It is a cheap way to get from A to B. Relocation deals don't have the unlimited number of days that regular one-way trips have.
So there is a better deal than a campervan relocation?
Yes, there is. If you want to travel for a long time or want to have the ultimate flexibility, then a relocation deal isn't what you need. Then a regular (one-way) road trip is what you are looking for. Often travellers are looking for last-minute relocation deals to get quickly and cheaply from point A to point B. Relocations are a great way to do that but there is a downside. Relocations are only for a fixed amount of days, the bare minimum needed to get the campervan to another location.
Why? Well, that's what relocation is all about. It is basically an error in the planning of the rental company. That particular campervan is just in the incorrect location and needs to be "relocated".
But for everyone that is looking for a cheap one-way road trip, which is what most travellers that are looking for a last-minute relocation, are after, Spaceships is the way to go. We are one of the most flexible rental companies out there.
No fee for one-way trips. Never! The price you see online is the price you'll pay. There are no hidden fees.
You cancreate your ideal one-way road tripin Australia as there are 7 Spaceships depots to choose from.
