Area of Use

We're thrilled that you've chosen us for your campervan adventure. Our top priority is ensuring that both you and our vehicles remain safe throughout your journey. That's why we've established certain travel guidelines.

While we want you to explore and enjoy as much of Australia and New Zealand as possible, some roads or regions may be temporarily restricted or completely off-limits. These restrictions are in place due to various factors such as typical road or weather conditions, remoteness which could lead to difficulty in repair or recovery, or other factors that could put you or the vehicle at risk.

So, before you set off on your adventure, please take a moment to familiarise yourself with our permitted areas of use. This will help you plan your journey effectively and avoid any potential inconveniences.

Remember, we're here to help you have an unforgettable journey. If you have any concerns about whether a particular travel destination is permitted, our friendly travel team is available 24/7 to help you plan your journey.

Please review the following maps and summaries, and ensure you read our full terms and conditions for more information.
