Wicked Campervan Rental Australia
Under the influence of the right drugs, we could answer those questions. For now though, we are only capable of answering campervan rental-related questions. In fact we've already trawled the depths of your minds (it's dark in there, you dirty, sexy thing) and we've prepared some answers to your questions as featured below...
Short Answer: NO. Why? See below baby...
What is a Toll Road? There are 15 Toll Roads on Australia’s East Coast. Many are unavoidable, major arterial roads and all are a complete & utter rip-off. Any vehicle traversing on these roads is required to pay a Toll Fee within 3 days. If the Toll Fee isn’t paid, the Toll Companies send Wicked Campers a letter of demand with an Additional Administration Fee of up to $30 (for each Toll infringement). Wicked Campers has until this point, been passing these fees on to the customer (sometimes we don’t receive notification for up to 3 months after the Infringement Date).
Wicked Camper’s competitors charge their customers $60-$80 per infringement as an additional administration fee if they do not pay their Toll Fees on time.
Toll Roads Levy $35 As of 10th April 2015, all Wicked Campers are registered with Toll Road companies around Australia.
What am I getting for $35? By paying the Wicked Campers Toll Roads Levy, you have Unlimited access to Toll Roads in Australia. You do not have to stress about paying them – we will pay them. Just enjoy your holiday knowing there will be no nasty surprises after your trip!
Do I Have to Pay the Toll Roads Levy? If you are travelling in or through Brisbane, Sydney or Melbourne, you must pay the Toll Roads Levy. The Levy is non-refundable.
Note: Wicked Campers Toll Levy does NOT cover infringements received for illegal conduct (Speeding, DUI etc.) or Parking fines.
What equipment is included in the vehicle?
Do any Wicked Campers have an MP3 connection? All vehicles come with a CD Player. Our Minicampers & Premium 2-Seaters are all fitted with ipod connectivity. However for the rest of our campervans you will have to purchase an MP3 radio transmitter that will play songs through the radio.
Can I hire baby seats/ do any vehicles have anchor points for a baby seat? No we do not hire baby seats. Campers only have 2 shoulder seatbelts and a waist belt in the middle of a 3 berth camper (bench seat). Our vans do not have an anchor point for baby seats. If you wish to travel with a child seat, then the Mini Camper 3 & our AWD / 4WD Vehicles are the only vehicles with anchor points.
What are the external dimensions of your campers? Vans are approx. 4.6m long, 1.7m wide and 1.9m high
Do vans have roof racks or tow bars? No. We do not have roof racks or tow bars.
Can I choose my design? Customers are welcome to put in a request for the design on the camper which we will try our best to accommodate if available. However as a lot of our hires are one way it is not guaranteed. Customers are also welcome to request a 'tame' van if travelling with children etc.
Which Vehicles are Automatic Transmission?
Does the vehicle come with Linen? No – the vehicles do not come with linen or pillows. You will need to supply our own. Some depots carry pillows and blankets from previous customers. You can use these if necessary, however this service is provided as a gesture of goodwill only.
Does my Camper come with a Sat Nav? GPS devices are available for hire, book online or notify our Roadtrip Planners when booking.
What is a Bond? A Bond is a security deposit payable at time of vehicle pickup. It is the same as a Bond when renting an Apartment, if the vehicle is returned in good order, the Bond is refunded to the hirer’s account.
Is the Bond actually deducted from my account? Yes, the full Bond amount will be deducted from your account at the collection depot on day of pickup.
How long does it take to refund my Bond? If you return your vehicle on-time and in good condition (& clean), then your Bond will be refunded back onto the same card within 14 Working Days.
Why does Standard Liability Reduction incur a $100 Fee? This $100 fee applies to any hirer paying a $3000 or $5000 Bond. It is non-refundable and covers the costs we have to absorb from currency fluctuations and International Transaction Fees.
I don’t have a Credit Card, only a Debit Card? If you decide to take Liability Reduction B, you will be required to provide a valid credit card at time of pickup. This is for the Pre-Authorisation and a security imprint (in case the vehicle is stolen). If you do not have a Credit Card, then you will need to pay a $500 Bond from your Debit Card at time of collecting the vehicle.

If I'm paying the security bond on credit card, do you actually take the money or just an imprint? For hires in Australia, a $3000 (2WD) or $5000 (4WD) bond is debited from your account for the duration of hire. Once the camper has been returned without damage or breach of contract, bond will be refunded. Bond refunds generally take up to 14 working days to be processed & refunded.

Can I park the camper anywhere when staying the night? In most places you’re allowed to park and camp for a night or two provided you’re not too messy and noisy. In city areas it’s a good idea to scout out caravan parks as some local councils fine backpackers for camping in the street (particularly Byron Bay). But as Australia is a large, sparse country, you’ll have no worries finding places to park and sleep for free! Just be sure not to be an asshole and leave your trash all over the place!
