Motorhome Rental Melbourne - How To Get The Best Deal
Exploring Melbourne and its neighbouring cities means being surrounded by breathtaking scenery and endless Instagram photo opportunities. Before you book a campervan rental in Melbourne, check out these tips to ensure your visit is as smooth and enjoyable as possible.
Firstly, define your budget and intended length of stay. Everyone’s looking for cheap campervan hire in Melbourne but take note that your amount of time in the city will dictate which type of camper will be suitable for your trip. For a weekend getaway, a 2-berth camper van could be a quality, cosy option. If you’re planning a six-week trip or plan to travel with a group, you’ll want a larger campervan rental for optimum comfort. A luxury motorhome hire in Melbourne is also ideal if you would like a more comfortable option.
For a little more cost each day, we recommend upgrading to a 3 or 4 berth camper. You’ll enjoy triple the space, a separate sleeping area, a full kitchen with a gas cooker, and an internal toilet plus shower.
We’re often told we have the biggest range of campervan brands for hire. However, we also understand that the vast range of options can be confusing! Each supplier offers unique motorhome styles and features, with different daily rates. That’s why we updated our website, so you can now easily compare and sort the camper types, campervan suppliers, and other important features with just a few clicks.
You can sort and compare by:

Our Australia campervan suppliers pay us a small fee to appear on our website.

Our campervan experts provide complimentary day-and-night support during your trip - just like a VIP concierge.
Daily Rates to Hire Campervan in Melbourne
Daily rates vary, depending on the type of campervan you book. Rental costs for campervans in Melbourne are typically a bit higher than the average in other Australian cities. This is because so many clients fly into Melbourne, collect their campervan rental and head up the coast along the ‘Great Ocean Road.’ We highly recommend this popular road - but as it’s such a common pick up location, daily rental rates for the region are a little higher.
You can also collect your camper hire from a nearby city such as Adelaide or Sydney. However, the daily rate may only be slightly cheaper. Generally, it’s not worth the hassle to save a few extra bucks for a camper hire in Melbourne.

Top things to see and do in Melbourne
Do you wish to visit Melbourne summer spots? We have several recommendations that will complete your campervan Melbourne road trip.
Around 30 kilometres southeast of Melbourne lies Dandenong. Dandenong Ranges is a good place to stay if you’re looking to explore the outer south eastern region such as the Mornington Peninsula and Phillip Island, which is directly south of Dandenong.
Another must-see location is Moorabbin, a suburb located 16 kilometres southeast of the Melbourne CBD, which is an easy drive straight down National Route Alt 1 and the Princes Highway in your motorhome hire Melbourne.
Next is the Shire of Macedon Ranges. It is a region in Central Victoria, known for its native forests, and thriving artisan food and wine industries. Use your data map so you can plan your motorhome itinerary with fun activities. You may also visit Loch Ard Gorge and the famous Twelve Apostles during your road trip.
St Kilda Beach is less than 10 kilometres from the centre of Melbourne. The beach is a sandy beach about 700 meters long and it is Melbourne's most famous beach.
Head your Melbourne campervan rental to Grampians National Park, a nature reserve in regional Victoria. It’s known for its sandstone mountains, wildflowers, and wildlife. Explore the natural beauty of the Grampians from its world-famous hiking trails or by taking a scenic drive.
For kids, you may visit Braybrook Park at Churchill Street, Braybrook. Braybrook Park is a regional park that is home to Aeroplane Park, a community garden, sports pavilion, basketball court, walking trails and seating. This is one of the best playgrounds in the west according to most customers.
If you have more time, drive your motorhome hire Melbourne going to Sydney and explore the capital of New South Wales and one of Australia's largest cities. Enjoy its harbourfront Sydney Opera House, and the Sydney Harbour Bridge.
Petrol stations in and around Melbourne
Remember fuel in your travel budget! Petrol usually accounts for much of the cost of campervan hire. If you’re heading out into the country, try to fill up your campervan rental before you leave, as petrol is often cheaper in larger centres due to high competition. Also, if you need some supplies, you may check out the Central West Shopping Centre to get some groceries for your road trip.
As fuel prices vary daily, the best way to compare petrol station prices is online or through mobile apps. MotorMouth Australia is a great place to start - while someone else is driving the Melbourne campervan hire, you can use the app to locate petrol stations on the go.
