Campervan Hire Cairns


Britz Cairns branch is conveniently located only 4 km from the city and the airport, providing easy pick-up and drop-off. Book your motorhome and campervan hire in Cairns with Britz today.

Cairns is one of Australia's well-kept gems thanks to its remote location, tropical weather and close proximity to the Great Barrier Reef, the world’s largest living eco-system. With 2300 km of reefs and islands harbouring thousands of different species of fish, corals, turtles, to name a few - the Reef is not one to be missed!

Considered the gateway to Tropical North Queensland, Cairns city is located 1700kms from Brisbane, and a good starting point for several itineraries such as The Great Tropical Drive, passing through Port Douglas and Cape Tribulation, or even the stunning and challenging Savannah Way which leads across to Broome in 14 days across the Top of Australia.

Vehicle Pick Up & Return

Before you arrive to pick up your camper, make sure you have downloaded the thl Roadtrip App and watched your camper show-through video ahead of your arrival. Within the App you can also access handy tips from planning and preparation, what to expect at pick-up and comprehensive on-the-road CamperHelp ‘how to’ videos. We also guide you through preparing your camper for drop-off. 

At pick-up, our branch crew will give you the opportunity to watch your camper show-through again and answer any questions you have about your camper before you hit the road. 

Before you return you will need to fill up your fuel tank and LPG Bottle, as well as empty the waste water tank and toilet cassette. There are no facilities at the branch to do this but you can search for your closest service station and dump station in the thl Roadtrip App. Please note, in Australia we do not allow Swap ‘n’ Go LPG Bottles. You will need to refill the LPG Bottle we supply in the camper. You can do this at outdoor stores such as BCF, Anaconda, Barbecues Galore or Gas Retailers. Ask your local branch host for their closest one. 

However, if you have purchased our Express Return Pack – all you need to do is drop the keys off at the dedicated return desk and we will refill and empty everything for you.
