maui, our motorhome partner, have a wide range of motorhomes and campervans catering to different needs and group sizes. All vehicles are fully equipped and have a reputation for high standards of service and quality. maui motorhomes are Green Globe benchmarked and environmentally sensitive with solar panels, renewable materials and the lowest fuel consumption rates of any motorhome company in Australia and New Zealand.
All maui motorhomes have been on the road for under three years and have a guaranteed bed layout. Each has automatic transmission, air-conditioning and heating, fridge, gas stove, microwave, toilet, shower, DVD player with flat-screen TV and a turbo Diesel engine. You’ll be supplied with fresh linens, kitchen essentials like crockery, cutlery and utensils, wine glasses and a coffee plunger. While storage is plentiful, we recommend travelling with soft luggage. All maui vehicles now include a built-in tablet that features the innovative ‘Like a Local’ GPS system and includes the CamperMate app (see below for more details).
maui Elite is essentially a daily supplement that you can pay on all maui models that guarantees you a vehicle less than one year old. We can also offer the option of Express Return Packs to speed up the drop-off process.
The cost of your motorhome depends on the demand for the dates you choose. The key to getting the best available price is firstly to book early and secondly to be flexible – adjusting your dates or avoiding the busiest peak periods can help reduce costs. maui also do periodically have earlybird offers and long-term hire discounts as well. Please speak to your local Personal Travel Expert who will be able to find the best prices for you.
We strongly recommend booking the maui Inclusive pack at the same time as booking your motorhome. This makes for worry-free travel and a simpler collection process. The maui Inclusive pack includes the following:
• Liability reduction option (nil liability with credit card authorisation taken and no vehicle deposit required – deposit otherwise is around $7,500)
• Single vehicle rollover cover
• Wi-Fi with 1GB of data
• Extra driver fees
• Linen exchange
• Picnic table & chairs for passengers
• Child/booster seat
• Portable fan heater
A motorhome gives you the ultimate flexibility to explore however you choose. Our key tips are to have at least one night in a hotel on arrival after a long-haul flight and to pre-book campsites, especially during peak season (December to March). You can do this before you travel on www.big4.com.au for Australia and www.Top10.co.nz for New Zealand. Many other campsites are also available to pre-book. The app CamperMate is another great booking and planning tool which has maps, travel alerts and tips that have been shared by other travellers.
Also, travellers should bear in mind that in Australia it is illegal to stop overnight anywhere other than an officially designated bay or at a campsite.
maui offer overnight experiences at selected vineyards around Australia and New Zealand. These include the cost of your pitch in an exclusive location, a gourmet hamper for two, a bottle of wine and access to the winery. Speak to your Personal Travel Expert about pre-booking your maui Winery Haven.
