Tips For Collecting Your Cruisin Camper From Hobart
How would you like to embark on a Cruisin’ Motorhome adventure for just $1 per day?
As a motorhome operator, sometimes we need to transfer vehicles from one specific destination to another in order to meet our rental requirements. When this happens, we offer travellers heavily discounted relocation specials on our website. This provides an ideal opportunity for budget conscious renters to fit in some sightseeing while travelling inexpensively between cities.
So be on the lookout here to take advantage of a great relocation deal! Depending on availability of the vehicle, you may be able to extend your trip at pick up or drop off – so long as you don’t miss your sailing booking on board the Spirit of Tasmania!
Below are some journeys you can take…
