About Us

Travellers Autobarn opened in Sydney, Australia, in late 1993, at a time when there were already a number of dealers selling cars to backpackers. However, these businesses were car dealerships first and foremost, and did not really understand the needs of travellers. From the outset, Travellers Autobarn focused entirely on these special needs. As ex-backpackers, all of us decided to provide the kind of service we would expect ourselves. We opened our operations in New Zealand through our partners Escape Campers & Happy Campers in 2008.

What you see today is the result. None of the car dealers that were selling to backpackers in 1993 still exist today!

All our branches are in the heart of the backpacker area and since 1993 we have opened several locations around Australia:

  • Sydney in 1993 (and still at the same shop in Kings Cross)
  • Cairns in 1999
  • Brisbane & Melbourne in 2002
  • Darwin & Perth 2005
  • Auckland & Christchurch 2008

Travellers Autobarn knows Australia & New Zealand inside out – it’s our home! We also know cars and love our job. Basically, the idea of travelling around Australia/New Zealand by bus is simply out of the question.

Perfect van and customer service for a cheap price !The vans are quite new, well maintained, confortable and well thaught. I chose Traveller Autobarn because they were one of the cheapest and on top of that the van was great and the customer service was perfect. We forgot something in the van and send it back home free of charge !! Thanks again for that Mike and for the great experience to discover NZ with your van !read more

Great experience!. I read some spiteful reviews below regarding customers driving badly...no logic. Hiring and driving a camper in NZ requires an amount of personal responsibility , yes drivers can be idiots but it seems so can reviewers who blame the rental company....bet you they didn't hire a van and just felt the need to mouth off. In my experience I can't fault the staff and must mention their thorough focus on safety during I pre-hire briefing. Good job lads (and ladies) keep it up !read more

My husband and I recently came back from a fantastic trip to NZ. We hired a campervan from Travellers Autobarn and drove around the North Island. We collected our van from Auckland with no troubles, the team there were so friendly and efficient we were on the road in no time. NZ is such a fantastic place to explore, we would definitely do it again with Travellers Autobarn. Cheers!read more

I’ve just got back from a family trip traveling around New Zealand over Christmas. We had a fantastic time in our camper van from Travellers Autobarn. Customer service was excellent from start to finish. Information provided at the start was clear and extremely useful. The camper van was clean and in great condition. We had no issues with the van during our journey. Would definitely recommend Travellers Autobarn if your looking to hire a van for your holiday. And we’ll be using them again next time. Thank you! 5 stars from us!read more

So happy with our Travellers Autobarn experience seeing all of NZ. The team was so nice, and helpful - even picking us up from the airport on arrival which was awesome!! We rented the Hi-5 camper which was amazing. It has everything you need. Big, roomy… an a smooth ride. In the campervan we got to travel on our own terms... Campervanning around NZ is the only way to see it. #vanlifeCheck out Travellers Autobarn for sure. Highly recommend!read more

Finding out Travellers Autobarn had vans in Australia and NZ made it a no brainer to book a van with them. We did a 2 week trip in Australia and then 1 week in New Zealand, both were equally amazing. We rented a Kuga Campervan in both places and it delivered the goods. Comfortable on the road, plenty of space for all our gear and loads of equipment to make the nights comfortable and the dinners delicious. Can't wait to book the next trip!read more

Fantastic overall!..one suggestion..get more bedding than just the one sleeping bag per person. It's just not enough at this time of year. Some parts of NZ are freezing in September. Even in summer, places like the mountain areas are extremely cold at night. We had to purchase blankets at an op shop on the second day as we were freezing at night. I suggest include some additional blankets. There's heaps of space. I don't like the idea mentioned of a 12v heater. Blankets are far better and more practical. Cheersread more

We had an amazing holiday with our Autobarn Kuga campervan. It was definitely worth the slightly higher price compared to the budget rental company we went with on our previous trip. The staff was just super friendly and helpful, and the van was in almost pristine condition. Very spacious and the interior was clearly well thought out. If we come back to NZ then we'll go with Autobarn again. The only minor downside is not being allowed to drive on unsealed roads (you'd have no insurance, so please read the T&C's about that!). Nonetheless, we fully recommend Travellers Autobarn!read more

My partner and I recently rented a Kuga campervan from Travellers Autobarn for a 2 road trip around the south island (July 2017). The van was surprisingly spacious, having a lot of room for storage as well as a lot of head room in the kitchen area (especially useful for my partner at 1.82m tall!). The kitchen itself was great, with a two burner gas stove, a small fridge and all the kitchen equipment you could need. Due to the fridge running off a different battery from the van, we were able to leave it running on the lowest setting with no worry of it draining the battery. As is was winter we had the winter pack which included extra sleeping bags and a hot water bottle which was awesome to have on those colder nights.The van was super easy and smooth to drive, making travelling from place to place much more enjoyable. Having the self contained option was awesome as it meant we could stay in some stunning Self-Contained parking areas. The staff were super friendly and easy to deal with; booking the van and picking it up was a breeze. Overall Highly recommended.read more

I rented a camper van from Auckland for two weeks from Travellers Autobarn.The van was very clean and looked like it was brand new. Particularly liked the thick mattresses for the top bunk which you don't always get in camper vans. Mechanically, cleanliness and customer service were all brilliant, though the van did use more petrol than expected (probably due to the weight of the van).Renting from Travellers Autobarn has been a great experience, I highly recommend it.read more

Me and my partner recently rented a hi-top camper from the Auckland branch of Travellers Autobarn, and it was perfect.The whole experience was brilliant from the get go; when we picked up we were greeted by Mike who I believe is the manager there. He was very friendly as if we were just having a catch up with an old friend, and he was really helpful and gave us ideas on places to go. I think he also got us on the road within about half an hour on being there, which was great as we had a busy day planned.And the van was great, it was clean and all seemed brand new, it was almost like a 5 star hotel on wheels. It had everything we needed in it, the kitchen was a good size, and quite a luxury as were used to camping in a smaller van. And we had heaps of space for our backpacks, we didn't even know what to do with all of the storage space. It was also a bonus that the van was self sufficient so we could stay at freedom sites, as those were some of our favourite (especially the one at Cathedral Cove). Mechanically the van was good (not that I know much about mechanics), but it got us around the North and South islands without any problems.All in all it was an amazing experience, and I would definitely rent with these guys again. :) Thanks guys, Adam & Claireread more

We had a great experience with travellers! The van was nice and spacious. The only problems we had were the winter pack which contained very thin sleeping bags that didn’t really warm us up so tip: bring some extra blankets or buy some in an opshop like we did! Also the front lights of the van were really bad so we recommend checking those before driving off. Otherwise we had an amazing experience with our little van called Kevin. Great customer service, shoutout to Joseph and thanks again for driving us to the airport! :)read more

We had a wonderful experience thanks to Joseph from Travellers Autobarn in Christchurch! He assisted us with the pick up and drop off of our van and helped us with questions that came up during our travels. He explained everything so well and could always reach him in case of questions/emergencies etc. He even took us to the airport at the end of our travels! :)) The van itself was just great, it was wonderfully equipped and we had the best time during our 3 weeks of travelling the South Island. Very easy to drive and to keep clean, we would definitely rent with Travellers again. Thank you Joseph for everything! We will hopefully see you again soon!Jess and Marianaread more

Have used them twice now, both in New Zealand and in Australia in different vans and have loved both experiences. Really helpful service insuring that we had everything we wanted for our trip and the van worked great. We had a slightly older model with a few bumps and dents on the body work, but the internal fit was still very good and we had no problems with the engine. Would highly reccommend and if we are ever back this way, we will book again with TA!!read more

Christchurch staff members Luna and Joseph were friendly and welcome us from the start, the specs and insurance policies were clearly explained.

These guys are great. We rented in Christchurch and dropped off in Auckland. Joseph was very helpful and informative as were the staff in Auckland. The Kuga van is well equipped and designed well with ample storage. The bed is comfy and being able to stand in it was a bonus. The gas cooker and water pump both worked brilliantly and the van interior was of a clean and tidy standard (I am not a backpacker either so I can be pretty fussy). The van was reliable and didn't fail once. The only negative is it chews through fuel and the air conditioning could have worked better but overall it was an excellent experience and I would absolutely rent from these guys again- it's brilliant to deal with a company that seems to genuinely care about their customers and wants them to enjoy their road trip in NZ rather than just purely trying to make money. Other travelers I met with different rental vans complimented the set up of ours and said they wished they'd rented with Travellers Autobarn! Thanks guys :)read more

We had high expectations for New Zealand, but I have to admit this country has surpassed them, and that’s highly thanks to our Van from Travellers-Autobarn, we drove for more than 7000 km, through the most remote and iconic locations, in great and not so great weather conditions, and our Kuga van never let us down.Although we didn’t use the outside chairs and table due to weather conditions, we did use the interior a lot, we had some heavy rain days and staying inside was always incredibly comfortable, and for us especially who need to some work while travel, the Kuga has proven to be a perfect companion. The internal storage is very spacious for all your luggage and bed is comfortable. Stove, fridge, and microwave are really helpful while on the road and we have used them almost every day.Although we didn’t have any breakdown we had a few talks with customer care, and the stuff at pick up and drop off, all of them incredibly kind and very helpful while explaining how the van worked and what to do in all those situations we don’t want to happen, but sometimes happen.Overall I totally recommend to choose Travellers-Autobarn for your road trip in Australia or New Zealand, we had an incredible time and would choose them again without a doubt.read more

Such a fantastic experience. Spent two weeks exploring in a camper and was an unforgettable experience. From start to finish it was compleatly perfect, we picked up the van and we were walked through everything we needed to know in detail and any questions we had were answered. The van itself ran like a dream the whole two weeks and was surprisingly efficient on the petrol. The bed was really nice and all the equipment like bedding, sleeping bags and pillows all seemed brand new. Couldn't recommend exploring like this more and choosing travellers autobarn is just a no brainer. A truly unforgettable experience.read more

Had a wonderful trip in van. The van drive like a dream. Woul recvomed anyone to get out there in a camper.
I hire a car with them in Brisbane and I'll repite with them. The staff is very friendly and they recommend places and help you if you need it.
What a wonderful two week Campervan experience in New Zealand. I think there is not a better place to learn how to drive on the left side of the road, meet the greatest people in the world, laugh when deciding if you want a long black or a short white, or discovere a breath taking view around every curve of the road, and every road has curves. The campervan was the perfect ice breaker at every petrol stop. Thanks to everyone who changed my life these past weeks on my Campervan Holiday in New Zealand! Cheersread more

We spent 3 weeks driving down the coast from Brisbane to Melbourne and had the best time ever. The Kuga camper van was spacious enough for three girls and all their luggage and fully equipped with everything you could possibly need on the road (pillows, sleeping bags, cutlery, pots, pans...). A big bonus was the travellers autobarn app, which helped us finding free places to sleep almost every night, as well as the perfect customer service. Every time we had some big or small issues (broken tire, didn't know how to use the gas etc.) they tried their best to help us out. I can only recommend travellers autobarn for everyone dreaming of the an awesome roadtrip and who might be travelling on a budget.read more
I've always wanted to do a big trip up beautiful coast of Austalia and I won't lie friends thought I was either very brave or very naive to do it on my own with two kids. TAB were great from the start, they gave me lots of tips about where was the best place to stop with the kids. The journey from Brisbane to Cairns was totally awesome and completed without a single glitch. We had a Hitop campervan which was perfect size for the three of us. Budget was the key factor and I would say that TAB have come up trumps for that! So would defo recommend them to anyone, epsecially parents wanting to do this kind of trip with kids. Ps make sure you pack a iPad or Nintendo DS for the long journeys...they are life savers! :)read more

A Little Problem on the car and a great Service from travellers autobarn. I am happy to select this Company for the roadtrip in australia of my daugther. thanks to Geoff, great work.
We rented a Kuga campervan from Travellers Autobarn for 5 weeks and drove from Cairns to Melbourne, it was an amazing trip! The camper van was great and very comfortable. The kitchen had a sink, a microwave and a small fridge. The water tank is around 35 liters and usually lasted us at least 3 days. Large bed and good curtains (very little light comes in!). We never had any issues with the car, it was well-maintained and clean. The staff from Travellers Autobarn is amazing! When we picked up our van the lady helping us gave us great advice about where to go and places to see. Drop-off was quick and effortless as well. Altogether I highly recommend Travellers Autobarn and I'll definitely rent a car from them again for a next Aussie road trip :-)read more
We rented a high top through Autobarn for our Australian travels from Cairns to Brisbane and loved it! We arrived just after 10am to pick up our camper and was told that it would be ready in half an hour or so as it was still getting cleaned. Although we never complained, as a kind gesture they told us to go and get some breakfast/lunch and they would reimburse our money up to the value of $50! They also threw in a free camp table for us which I thought was great customer service! The staff were great, really informative and told us all the best places to go as well as answering any questions we had. The camper was spacious, microwave, fridge and full cooking equipment and utensils provided. We bought a connection lead so we could play our music which was around $2. Really comfy bed and front seating area. All in all a great experience and would definitely recommend!read more

Flinke medarbejdere på stedet.Har kørt rundt først på Nordøen, senere på Sydøen. Ingen problemer med bilen. Lidt sløv i optrækket når vi kørte i bjergene, der skulle arbejdes lidt med gearene. Afleverede bilen lørdag d. 18/11 i Christchurch kl. 10.00. Kontoret lukkede kl. 12.00 alt for tidligt. Vi skulle først flyve hjem kl.19.00. Men ligeledes rigtig godt taget imod på kontoret.

5 stars for their customer service over the phone! After issues with our own personal van, we needed a vehicle fast so we could get back on the road. We were told that, while you can't rent something within two days online, you can however do this over the phone. Although the cookware would usually be included, they were understanding in our situation that we already had our own cooking gear etc from our van (that we were scrapping so wanted our gear for our travels) and managed to waiver the fee and remove the equipment. We also got second driver added for free which was a massive help due to our financial situation. We picked up our station wagon the next day. It wasn't completely full with petrol as described but by his point we just wanted to get going. The wagon was in a good condition and was ready for our travels. On returning to our van (we went back to pick up what bits we could) we tried to put our own mattress in the back of the wagon only for it to not fully fit and end up being unusable. This was after we were told twice that a standard double mattress should fit fine. Important to mention for anyone interested that the wagon does usually come with a tent and gear but not a mattress if you were to choose to stay in the wagon. After a stressful and emotional personal week with our own van mucking up for what felt like the hundredth time, this was the cherry on top. Unfortunately for the guy on the end of the phone, I regretfully made it seem more like a personal attack on the poor fella. Despite my manner over the phone however, he remained professional and showed he wanted to help us come to a solution for which I am grateful. Another phone call later and I was pleading to see if there was a way I could get refunded and take back the wagon, although I knew this was extremely unlikely as it's not something they'd usually do. I was told I'd hear back from the manager and when he called back, I was greeted with, to us, what was a better offer than we could've hoped for. We could rent one of their cheaper vans (instead of the station wagon) for the same dates and location, for the same price as we'd paid for the wagon (usually around $30 extra a day). If we chose not to, we could have a refund minus a week of original hire (around $350-400), although that was not an option. This is by no means standard practise but showed that they're willing to go above and beyond to make sure you enjoy your adventure as much as possible should any issues arrive. We swap the vehicles over tomorrow and we can't wait. Thank you!read more
we came in the other day and Stephen was the best! we had many questions and he was so patient and helpful! if we will get a car it would defiantly be from him!
Went on an amazing trip from Perth to Sydney. We even got extra days for free, because of the waiting at the office. Had a blast!
We went on an amazing roadtrip from Cairns to Sydney and had the best time in our Budgie! We can definitely recommend Travellers Autobarn to anyone who is looking for a campervan at a reasonable price. The customer service was great - questions were quickly answered and we always felt like the staff was actually interested in making our trip as great as possible and not only in 'making money'. Thanks to the team! Would definitely book again :)read more
