campervan rental at alice springs

after looking at various options decided the campervan rental is best to do alice-ululu -kings canyon- AS for our upcoming trip in april 2014. Will be 4/5 day rental

can you help with logistics. What is best.. do AS- ululu first as i have suggested or KC first??

Also, can you suggest companies that do this rental. I know of BLITZ but wonder if there are others that can also be recommended. I have read some bad stories in these pgs about various outfit. Know probably are exceptions but best to get your comments.

We have used Britz very often in different areas of Australia and have always been happy with their campervans and motorhomes (we've rented different types, including 4WD) and with their service - though they're not cheap.

Hey there,

Have you thought about what kind of vehicles you are gonna travel with? Like a lowtop, hightop or a Motorhome, or a 4WD? Because different companies specialise in different vehicles.

Cheers

We have just spent 6 weeks travellng / camping in the Red Centre etc in our own 4wd + tent, however, we noticed that Apollo then Britz seemd to be the most common hire vehicles. We called them the Apollo Army & the Britz Battalion as they all seemed to arrive en masse in the campgrounds :) On chatting with the various campers, all were happy with their vehicles., tho some suggested that the cheaper options were not necessarily the best quoting breakdowns, faulty equipment etc. Those who booked almost a year ahead definitely got the better deals.

have rented a Britz from Alice Springs and happy with the vehicle, no problems.

travelled from Alice to Uluru to kings canyon to Alice then onto Darwin . no dirt roads though. I don't see any difference in the order of Uluru or KC . longest drive is Alice to Uluru or If you do KC first it would be Uluru to Alice on return journey.

You should have a great time manzanita!

We flew into Alice and we(2couples) got a shuttle bus straight to pick up the campervan. This takes a little time watching an info DVD and checking over the vehicles etc.

Alice Springs-BIG4 MacDonnell Range Holiday Park-good facilities and our husbands enjoyed some entertainment when we stayed on return from Kings Canyon. …big4.com.au/park/macdonnell-range-holiday-p…

Uluru- Ayers Rock Resort campground- again good facilities. http://www.ayersrockresort.com.au/arrcamp/

Kings Canyon resort campground- lovely setting especially for evening drinks as the sun sets. kingscanyonresort.com.au/Camping-and-Caravan…

Happy to answer any questions
