20 Years of Travellers Autobarn

While we try to avoid writing on the blog about ourselves we had to make an exception for our 20th anniversary – that is a long time in today’s campervan industry.

Initially selling cars with a guaranteed buyback to backpackers who at the time were limited to stupefying long distance bus journeys or domestic airfares to rival a return flight to London. We later diversified into campervan rental and now has a national branch network, that includes, Sydney, Perth, Darwin, Melbourne, Cairns & Brisbane

20 years later Travellers Autobarn is now the largest and most popular backpacker self drive company in Australia.

Peter Burke, the big boss, stated “I remember in the first 5 years we used to get loads of postcards from happy customers and we lived or died based on reviews in the Lonely Planet, which came out every 2 years, then the internet came along and changed everything. Postcards in the mail evaporated, low cost airlines sprang up offering one way fares, online booking systems arrived and campervan rental flourished. It could be said we were well positioned to benefit, but I’d like to think we made full use of the opportunities as they arose.  Despite being a small business we have built a team that is not afraid to innovate, and that believes in listening to the customer. If it was possible I’d like to thank all the staff and customers that have driven a Travellers Autobarn vehicle and enjoyed all Australia has to offer. Thank you!”

We have celebrated our anniversary last Thursday and would like to thank all those travellers & staff members out there who have made Travellers Autobarn a real success! Next party is already in the making – 25 years TAB!
