Campervan rental under 21: what you need to know

You travelled a long way to explore this beautiful country of ours, so you want to see as much as possible. Makes sense. Well, the best way to do that is with a car or even better, a campervan. But you might wonder: is it possible to go for a rental campervan when I'm a young driver aka under 21?

Yes, you can! And it's super easy and affordable! We'll explain how and will go into it in detail. Just keep on reading.

Campervan rental under 21: easy with Spaceships

Exploring Australia by campervan is awesome. You can drive wherever you want to go and simply sleep comfortably in the vehicle. This saves you time; you don't have to set up a tent. A campervan is hassle-free travelling.

Find a great (and legal) camping spot (use the free travel & camping app for your smartphone), park the vehicle, and it's time to relax. Have a cold drink from the fridge and/or cook your meal on the gas cooker that's included. When you're sleepy, just expand the bed inside the vehicle or outside for even more space and ventilation. Easy.
