After a Cheap RV Rental? Here are three quick tips.
- Some of the best deals are available early in the season. Tasmanian campervans are especially popular in December and January. Book your motorhome rental well in advance and you could save $100s compared to last minute bookings.
- The price of rentals depends on several factors including: date of booking, size of motorhome, age of vehicle, time to travel as well as the pickup depot. One way rentals are also often more expensive than returning cars to the same depot. Being flexible on any of these parameters can help you secure a cheaper offer.
- Compare, compare, compare – spending the time on comparing different travel options can ultimately be the biggest factor deciding on the final price you end up paying. Use our comparison tool to find a deal for your Tasmanian trip.

Sightseeing in Tasmania
Begin in Hobart
Discover Port Arthur and Wineglass Bay
Continuing the circle, you’ll then arrive on the East Coast and a string of laid back beach towns, such as Swansea and St Helens. A ‘must-see’ is renowned Freycinet National Park and picturesque Wineglass Bay. Lonely Planet has also boosted the stunning Bay of Fires into international attention.
Explore Launceston and the Northwest Coast
The West Coast of Tasmania is wild and remote, populated by old mining towns amongst ancient rainforests. There’s a lot of history to be found in its more remote corners, but the main visitor spot is charming Strahan which affords easy access to Macquarie Harbour and the Gordon River
You’ll then surely want to cut back inland to take in wild and dramatic Cradle Mountain-Lake St Clair National Park, oft titled the crown jewel of Tasmania. A quick jaunt across the bucolic Derwent Valley completes your circuit of the state.
