To ensure your safety Apollo has some travel restrictions for certain vehicles, if you’re unsure Its best to share your proposed route with Apollo to ensure that it is safe to travel.
Not all RVs are suitable for all driving situations, so it’s important the right RV is chosen for the travel planned. Apollo, at its discretion, may restrict RV travel in certain areas due to adverse road or weather conditions, and the distance to nominated destinations in relation to the length of the rental period. If applicable, any further restrictions will be mentioned at pick-up. Guests are encouraged to contact Apollo Assist on 1300 798 212 for any concerns regarding road accessibility.
For the safety of guests, the following travel restrictions are in place:
• Apollo and Cheapa Vivid Campers must not be driven in the Northern Territory or Western Australia.
• Guests who travel to restricted areas without permission will void all liability cover in the event of damage or accident and may be subject to a penalty fee of $300 charged on each identified occasion.
• Hippie RVs must not be driven to Tasmania.
• Hippie Hitop and Hippie Endeavour can be driven to the Northern Territory at an additional cost of $30.00 per day as long as written permission is obtained from Apollo prior to travel. The Hippie Drift is not allowed in the Northern Territory.
Two-Wheel Drive vehicles, such as our Campervans and Motorhomes can only be driven on sealed/bitumen roads or well-maintained access roads which lead to recognised camp grounds and are less than 12 kilometres long.
Four-wheel drive (4WD) vehicles can be driven on recognised unsealed tracks but may only travel to some remote areas with written permission of Apollo. See our full list of restricted areas HERE.
When hiring a 4WD vehicle we recommend that you only drive within your limits and if you are new to travelling off-road you partake in 4WD driver training before embarking on your journey. Talk to our friendly team if you are unsure if a 4WD trip is suitable for you.
