Lara Baco is a Getaway viewer who wants to hit the road. She wants to rent a campervan to drive from Brisbane to Cairns and e-mailed us to see if there is such a thing as stand-by rates. Good thinking with the price of petrol being sky high!
We did some research for Lara and have some good news for her.
standbycars.com is one of a few companies that offers last minute savings in relocation campervans. That's rental car talk for vans that need to be returned to their original destination.
standbycars will take bookings on-line for up to fourteen days before you leave. Prices can start from as low as $1 a day!
Another company, Australia Motor Camper Rentals, has an updated list of their best rental deals with available dates. Click their "Rentals" link for more information.
Obviously, with deals like these, conditions apply and are subject to availability, but for the money you could save, they're definitely worth checking out.
