Brisbane Depot Visits
Our staff are kept up to date with the latest vehicle designs by experiencing them first hand.
Last Thursday I escorted our newest team members, Maria & Fiona, to the innovative Maui, Britz & Backpacker(now Mighty) depot to see the extensive range of 2, 4, 5 & 6 Berth vehicles. Their vehicles range from new to over 6 years old so any traveller can find a vehicle that suits their needs and budget. The air conditioned depot is located conveniently close to the airport and has toilets, free internet, a play area for children & speedy self check in service.
We ventured onto the Kea depot only a short drive away to view the range of luxury 2, 4 & 6 berth vehicles. If you are looking for quality, comfort and safety, this is definitely the range to go for. The fittings are of the highest quality, including high grade macro suede fabric seat covers, central locking systems, safety deposit boxes, security screens and solar panels.
The next stop is the funky Jucy depot located a bit closer to the city and about 10 minutes further from the airport. The depot cannot be missed with the emphatic signage in purple and green. The Jucy vehicles are more suited to the budget minded traveller who wants the convenience of a home on wheels but not break the budget, especially for those longer hires. A stand out inclusion is the flat screen DVD players (and you can even borrow DVDs from the depot for your journey!).
Snow Holidays in New Zealand
Winter is fast approaching and the cooler weather will bring back those awesome, fun-filled slopes covered in snow. Now is the perfect time, for those who love or have always dreamed about a ski & snowboard holiday, to start thinking and planning!
An ideal way to get to and from the slopes, include sightseeing and sleeping arrangements is to hire a fully equipped motorhome (after all, it is your home on wheels!).
Jucy have joined in on the fun by providing 1 free adult all lifts day pass to Treble Cone Ski field in Wanaka for each day the vehicle is hired. Travel dates for the pass is between July and September 2012.

Campervans Dominate the Rugby World Cup
The streets of New Zealand have not only come to life with the world's best rugby players and their adoring and wild fans... They have also become dominated with New Zealand motorhomes.
It seems motorhome hire was a popular accommodation option for Rugby World Cup visitors. Over 70,000 travellers in total are set to grace the shores of New Zealand throughout the event...which is the biggest the country has ever seen.
Campervan hire has proved to be a preferred option as it has given fans the chance to follow their team around the country, while also being able to soak up the incredible countryside and sights.
New Zealand cities that have seen a influx of motorhome hire travellers include Napier, New Plymouth, Auckland, Wellington, Dunedin and Christchurch.
The Rugby World Cup will (sadly) draw to a close on October 23...just in time for motorhome companies to recover before the Christmas rush period.
