Salamanda Travel is an Australian owned and operated company that specialises in self-drive holidays in Australia. In particular, we help organise campervan hire and car rental for clients from Australia and around the world. We began operating in 2001 and this year we celebrate our 10th birthday. That's 10 years of rewarding work and satisfied clients!
Our name may sound funny, but our team are serious when it comes to providing the best customer service in the business. Our staff members are experienced in campervan hire and their product knowledge is second to none. They regularly get out and test the campervans and cars themselves so they have first-hand experience when it comes to recommending hire vehicles.
Why Choose Salamanda Travel?
We Offer Choice
In Australia, we work with the top travel suppliers for your campervan, car, hotel and train requirements. This means that no matter what you are looking for, we will have the range to meet your criteria and budget. This also means that you can save time by checking prices and descriptions in one place, rather then waiting for quotes to come in from different companies.
Instant Quotes & Bookings
We know that time is money which is why our whiz-bang quote system offers instant prices for your campervan rental and car hire. So you can view all of the available vehicles on one page and instantly compare them. From there you can proceed with a booking or contact us if you have any further questions. Our online quote process ensures that all costs are clearly outlined, so there are no surprises when you book through us. We currently do not offer online quotes for hotels and trains, but we are happy to send through a personalised quote within 24 hours of receiving your enquiry.
No Credit Card Fees
Booking with us means no credit card fees. We do not charge any credit card fees for payments made to us. Please note that any payments made directly to the campervan rental company at pick-up are subject to fees.
Price Match Guarantee
We are happy to offer a "Price Match Guarantee" for any of the products we offer. We aim to find you the best deal but understand that there may be times when we have to do better! Just email us the other quote you have received for the same vehicle and we'll aim to match it - or even beat it!
We proudly offer a range of specials for your upcoming travels. We take pride in updating our specials page as soon as a new special becomes available, so you will never miss out on getting the best deal for your holiday.
Book Now, Pay Later
At Salamanda Travel we offer a range of flexible payment options. For campervan hire and car rental, you can either pay a small deposit to secure your camper rental and the balance is not due until pick-up. So book now and pay later! Or if you want to take advantage of exchange rates, we can collect full payment at the time of booking. Full payment is required for hotel accommodation and train travel, but this can be split over a number of payments to make it more manageable for you.
Pay in Local Currency
We process all payments in the local currency of travel. So if you are travelling in Australia, we process in Australian dollars. If you are travelling in New Zealand, we process your payment in New Zealand dollars, and so on. This ensures that you aren't charged more than necessary when booking your travel, whether that be in Australia or overseas.
Funny Name, Serious Business
Where did our name come from? We obviously don't sell salamander lizards, but we liked the unique nature of salamanders and their ability to adapt to many different environments. Some salamanders live in the water all their lives, some are entirely land-based and some flip between water and land. Did you know that salamanders are capable of regenerating lost limbs, as well as other body parts?!
While our name may sound funny, we are serious when it comes to the business of booking travel for our clients. We take care to offer the most up-to-date information on our website, from campervan descriptions through to internal shots of The Ghan train. Salamanda Travel is committed to finding the best deal for your travels and we look forward to helping you plan and book your holiday in Australia, New Zealand, Canada or the United States.
