How much it costs to rent an RV in Hobart will depend on many things! The first being the type of RV you choose to rent.
You can expect to rent anywhere from $45-$400 per day depending on the size and model of the vehicle.
The season will also have a huge impact on the price. The summer months of December, January and February are the high season in Tasmania, so you will see a hike in prices during these months. If you are looking to explore Hobart on a budget, it is best to aim for the quieter months.
Nearly all campervan and RV rental companies in Australia will require you to hold a full driver's license and be at least 21 years of age to rent a vehicle.
That being said there are a few companies that will rent to those 18+ with additional young driver’s fees but these are few and far between!
