Hippie Road Trip Giveaway September winners revealed!

It’s time again for us to showcase more winners from our fantastic Road-Trip giveaway competition (you know, the one where we give away iPads, videos and cameras?)!
We’re thrilled to share a short except from the awesome winning blog entry, which really illustrates the awesome adventures you can have if you do a trip down the East Coast of Australia in one of our fantastic campervans:

Going Nowhere Slowly

We chose a Hippie camper as the most cost effective package of essentials needed to ensure a trip of pure sun soaked hedonism: a fridge to chill the beers, air con to help the sea-breeze, a sound system to raise eyebrows and a back seat kitchen and double bed. Yes, it’s possible to be hippie these days without forgoing life’s modern luxuries…

The east coast of Australia is littered with excellent beach-front tourist parks and camp sites. The freedom of a campervan allows you to choose to linger at the most stunning beaches, where you can hit the beach before sunrise (such as the sunrise at Yeppoon, showing the the Keppel islands on the horizon) and linger until the great milky wheel of stars rise wet and shimmering from the waves.

We also had some simply awesome photos from our happy Hippie campers, including team favourites such as this retro shot from James:

And this spectacular New Zealand pic from Jane:

Don’t forget, the competition is still running, so there’s still plenty of chances to win. Keep up the good work!

Business as usual for Hippie Christchurch

Hippie Camper is pleased to advise that after the recent earthquake in Christchurch, our rental branch remains fully operational. Customers are still able to pick up and drop off campervans as usual. The team’s thoughts are with all those affected.

Hippie has a variety of motorhomes and campervans on site in Christchurch which would be suitable temporary accommodation for locals whose houses have been damaged. Please contact [email protected] for a special rate.

Low Season Hippie Rates – Unbeatable and Awesome

If you’re thinking of doing the campervan thing around Australia, right now is the perfect time. Most Aussie camper rental companies (including Hippie) set their prices based on supply and demand, so the quieter it is, the cheaper the rate.

Up in Queensland the winter hardly counts (at the Hippie head office in Brisbane, we wear jumpers at the very most) – but for some reason, people are scared off by the prospect of a little bit of chill.

This is great news, because it means our prices are SPECTACTULAR right now, particularly from Cairns. We’d love you to rent our ultra-cheap new campervans over low season, and here are a few great reasons why:

  1. There are not so many crowds around – which means a more relaxed holiday for you
  2. It’s so cheap ($37 per day anyone)!
  3. If you mention the blog, we’ll give you FREE table and chair hire for your whole trip! This offer expires at the end of October 2010… so get in quick.
