Yes, it’s standard for most campervan rental companies to allow an additional driver. This driver and any others must be named on the rental agreement, and there may be a nominal fee.
Additional drivers must also hold an appropriate driver’s licence and must meet driver age requirements.
When renting a vehicle, it is standard to be charged a bond (security deposit), also known as ‘excess’, which is the amount the renter is liable to cover in the event of an accident or damage to the vehicle.
The bond amount fluctuates based on the insurance package selected at the time of rental and is charged and debited on the renters’ credit or debit card.
Terms and conditions vary by rental company; however, most companies do not charge a fee if the cancellation is made three months prior to pickup (including Maui, Britz, Apollo, Cheapa Campa, StarRV, Hippie and Mighty). The closer the date to picking up the vehicle, the higher the cancellation fee will generally be.
Deposit amounts may not be refundable.
With the COVID-19 outbreak affecting many travellers’ plans in 2020, many suppliers have updated their cancellation policies.

Generally, 4WD vehicles can only be driven on recognised sealed tracks.
Exceptions can be made for some areas, however, permission is usually required in advance especially for any off-road areas.
In addition to unsealed roads, companies may restrict certain roads or trails with a reputation for being rough or rugged. If you take your vehicle into an area that is restricted you will be liable for all damages and in some cases will also have to pay a fine.
If unsure about a certain area, it’s best to contact the rental company in advance.
For 4WD vehicles, a daily mileage allowance usually applies (around 300 km), thereafter additional fees will apply.
The comparison tool will show you which vehicles have unlimited kilometres and which have restricted mileage. Consult the rental agreement of the supplier for further details.

Broome’s 13.6 mile long iconic Indian Ocean beach sports dazzling colours: pure white sands, turquoise waters, and tall red cliffs.
Named for the telegraph cable that connected Broome with Java in 1889, Cable Beach is a popular locale for camel riding, and several types of turtles nest here October through February.
At the southern end of Cable Beach, Gantheaume Point allows for viewing of migratory whales and dolphins, along with 130-million-year-old fossil dinosaur footprints.
Just ten minutes from Broome’s town centre and adjacent to Western Australia’s famous Cable Beach lies one of the area’s most photographed locales, Gantheaume Point.
Here the desert meets the turquoise waters of the Indian Ocean and red rock cliffs overlook a white sandy beach.
