When to book a campervan in Alice Springs?

The summer and winter seasons are the two primary seasons of Australia. Even so, you'll need to consider when the best time to visit Australia is. 

After all, having a good time when you're there is far more essential than having a nice time while you're there.

During the summer, you'll notice that the further north you go, the more sticky and humid the weather becomes. The weather, on the other hand, tends to be fairly cold and pleasant during the Autumn and Spring months. 

It has been considered appropriate for travel throughout the country as a result of this. It is important to remember, however, that it is very dependent on the specific region to which you will be travelling.

Alice Springs is located in the middle of Australia's ochre outback and hauntingly magnificent mountain ranges. From the ancient desert, it rests on to the Aboriginal culture that is built into the very fabric of life here, this town, known to the locals as "Alice," reflects the typical Australian character. 

From camel rides to morning hot air balloon excursions, the town itself offers a diverse range of outback activities.

Alice Springs, in Australia's Red Centre, has a climate that is characterised by extremes, with scorching summers and frigid winters. With this weather and rainfall forecast, you can plan ahead.

With pleasant days and cold nights, autumn is one of the greatest times to visit Alice Springs. The average temperature ranges from 12 to 27 degrees Celsius (53.6 to 80.6 degrees Fahrenheit).

What is the minimum age to hire a campervan?

The minimum age to hire a campervan in Australia is 21 years old. Other companies rent unique automobiles to people aged 18 and up.

Is a specific licence required to rent and drive a campervan?

No, there isn’t. A conventional automobile driver's licence can be used to operate a campervan, motorhome, or recreational vehicle. 

The licence must be current, complete, and unrestricted for a minimum of 12 months. Although certain providers accept Australian Green Plate (P2) licence holders, probationary licences are not accepted (age restrictions apply). 

Your driver's licence, as well as the licences of any other drivers, must be shown when picking up your rental car.

Licenses must be written in English or be accompanied by a certified translation or an international driving permit. 

An International Driving Permit, as well as your actual driver's licence from the originating country, is necessary for non-English language-based driving licences. You will be refused entry to the car if you do not have this documentation.
