    it all looks good

    My husband and I booked the Jayco Journey 2016 van to travel around Tasmania for two weeks. The entire process was so easy, from booking the van on line Vin was wonderful to deal with and answered any questions we had, then we collected the van from Wendy and she explained how to use everything in the van. We were very happy with all the little extras the van came with as well even down to the bug spray Vin definitely thought of everything. We were able to use the van at powered and non powered sites as it ran on both electricity and gas and Vin had even put together a booklet on how to use everything (fridge, hot water etc) it made life so much easier in those first couple of days til we knew what we were doing. Overall we had a wonderful experience with Tasmania Caravan Hire and we can’t wait to do it again. Thanks again Vin and Wendy for making it so easy.

    Had a wonderful experience with the hiring of the van. Everything you needed was included. Thanks to Mark and Wendy and Vin. Can’t wait till our next adventure. Cheers.


    A Brilliant Concept. We had the best time with this Jayco van so many little things were included and everything we needed was on board. Only bedding, towels, food and drink required. Wendy and Mark were so welcoming and being our first time they made the start to the journey very informative and reassuring on running the van. Wendy’s plain english run through was thorough and we felt like experts when we left them… Vin was very responsive with any of our queries throughout the trip. Very very happy with the entire arrangement of this hire.
    This is a must do venture!

    We had an excellent experience with every aspect of hiring a Van from Tasmania Caravan Hire, both Wendy and Vin were so helpful and a pleasure to deal with. The van was beautifully clean, well stocked and was easy to tow, we couldn’t have asked for more and are certainly looking forward to our next trip away. Thank you Tasmania Caravan Hire

    We had a fabulous time in this van, was great for a couple! It was clean and had everything in it we needed and pick up and drop off was easy and Vin was great to deal with and Wendy and her partner were a delight!
    Definitely would rent again!

  7. Chris & Julie Misson

    We hired this van for 8 days (Dec 6 – 13, 2021) and had a fantastic time at some caravan parks and as well as 2 free camping sites in NE Tas. The van was very clean, very well equipped with basic necessities and the service from Vin, Mark and Wendy was excellent. This was our second time hiring (we also hired in August, 2021 for 5 days). As beginners to van life, wanting to practice the routines before we get our own van next year, the excellent briefings from Mark and Wendy have been most helpful in ensuring we were able to confidently use the van and have a couple of most enjoyable camping trips.
