A compact campervan is the best way to explore the outer space of Australia. Spaceships campervans are the original compact campervans that are as versatile as a Swiss Army Knife. Each campervan is named after a character from sci-fi films & series, cartoons, or games. From Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy to Back to the Future and from Star Trek to Star Wars, there's a Spaceship with a reference to these awesome movies. Each Spaceships campervan has its own unique and geeky name.
Each campervan is as unique as our Space Travellers (our customers). It's always a surprise which character your campervan will be named after. You simply book the campervan category and our system allocates a geeky-named campervan within that category to your booking.
The biggest advantage of booking our campervans is the fact that a Spaceship drives like a car and sleeps like a campervan!
But there are more reasons to go for a #spaceshipsroadtrip. Check it out.

Good fuel economy
Spaceships campervans are based on the Toyota Estima model, so a real workhorse. These vehicles are made for many years of worry-free driving, no matter the distance. And as our mechanics treat each campervan like their baby, our campervans are well-maintained and in excellent condition.
The petrol engine of the Toyota Estima gives you plenty of power for your road trip without sacrificing fuel economy. Have a look at our campervan comparison page where you'll also find the fuel economy stats for each campervan category.
Bond not taken
At Spaceships, we don't take the bond from your credit card or bank account. It is simply frozen on your credit card or debit card and won't leave your account. So it isn't a payment and you won't have to deal with any currency conversion fees. The bond is frozen on your card, which means it is reserved in case it is needed so you can't spend it. As soon as the campervan is returned in the same state as it left the depot, the bond will be released. As it never was a payment, you won't see a deposit or refund on your account. The money is just released and available for you to spend again. Easy and cost-effective.
Of course, you can also select an insurance option where there is no bond required. This is all explained on our insurance information page.
Smart battery system
All campervans in the Spaceships Australia fleet come with a smart battery system. Some call it a dual battery system but it is actually a smart battery system. The system charges itself while you are driving so it if fully charged when you are entering a selected campsite to spend the night. The system powers the fridge/freezer of the campervan and makes sure there is always power left in the morning to start the vehicle again. Therefore, we call it a smart battery system instead of a dual battery system.
Spaceships campervans come in various configurations. Some of our campervan categories can seat 2 people while others can seat up to 4 people. And by this, we mean belted seats in the vehicle. So there is always a seatbelt for each person sitting in the vehicle. On our campervan comparison page, you will see how many people can be seated in each campervan category.
Travelling together is always better and more fun.
