Tips to plan your 4WD camper hire holiday

October 31, 2019

Are you planning a 4WD campervan hire from Darwin to Cairns? We’ve just helped our clients Julie and Bill put together their plans to explore part of the Savannah Way next year.

Their adventure will start with them picking up their 4WD camper hire from Darwin where they catching up with family first for a few days before setting their sights east and heading to Cairns along part of Australia’s adventure drive!

The Savannah Way is a 3,700km long adventure drive that links Cairns in tropical north Queensland to the historic pearling town of Broome all the way over in Western Australia, via the Northern Territory’s lush Top End. If you’re planning to do the entire Savannah Way, it also links 15 national parks and five World Heritage areas. If you’re planning on a 4WD camper hire and have time to do the entire route, then you won’t be disappointed!

The planning for this Darwin to Cairns trip began a while back for Julie and Bill who had pretty much given up on the idea of this adventure by the time we got talking to them. By the time they had stumbled upon us they had spent many hours researching the route, the vehicle and were very confused with the information they had been given from various travel organisations and websites.

We spent time on the phone with them, working one-to-one to really determine their exact needs and concerns so we could recommend the perfect 4WD camper hire for their big adventure.

Julie and Bill discovered that our personable approach to our customers meant we could apply our knowledge of this route and of course the vehicles too, and put everything in plain English to help them understand what is not only the best 4WD camper hire for their trip, but also explaining in more detail the terms and conditions of insurance, which many find confusing,  to help assist them in making the best decision for them.

These very kind words came in from Julie and Bill once they had their booking secured and confirmed. All they have to do now is sit back and relax and look forward to their amazing trip across the Savannah Way.

“We are happy to recommend the services of Gallivanting Oz to anyone who is contemplating a trip in the Outback, as we have been. I spent hours researching and getting quotes from every conceivable outfit online, only to end up confused and dispirited. We were at the point of flagging the whole idea away as being all too hard to organise, when I stumbled over good old Gallivanting!

Ange and Belinda were amazing and sorted us out in very short order. Their communication and organisational skills are great, and they removed any stress and doubts we had.

So, thanks G O! You are stars, and we can’t wait to start our trip.

One word of advice to prospective adventurers..

Start with Gallivanting Oz and spare yourselves a whole lot of time and aggravation!
