Here are some words from our beautiful customers. We appreciate their feedback and for being part of our dream to return kombi’s on the road and bring joy to those who drive them.

Inspired by a rare sunny day in Melbourne’s winter and seeking something a little different, we hired a kombi camper from www.hireakombi.com for a weekend Great Ocean Roadtrip.

Our gorgeous fully-equipped 1970s Westfalia, lovingly looked after by George and Alyce, was named Gracie. Predictably my two young sons were immediately infatuated.

We spent our first night at the lovely Wye River Holiday Park, and the second just steps away from the ocean at Apollo Bay. With her roof popped up Gracie contains two comfortable double beds, easily accommodating four people. Despite cold wet nights it was beautifully cosy in the van, and wonderful to wake up to the sun streaming in through the windows and the kettle boiling for a cup of tea. We spent our days enjoying the iconic Great Ocean Road scenery between Lorne and Princetown, stopping to eat, play and explore beautiful beaches along the way.

It was an idyllic weekend holiday. Gracie gave us the freedom to take it in at leisure, without the need to make plans or book ahead. My 6 year old son Leo declared it our best holiday ever, and didn’t once ask “Are we there yet?”

Alyce and George – thank you for providing a fantastic service, without any pretensions.

Layla was the perfect addition to our wedding day and we could not have been any happier with the service that Hire a Kombi provided us. The van itself is super stylish both inside and out, runs like a breeze and was able to fit our whole bridal party (8 of us) while we cruised around for photos. Alyce looked after our booking and bent over backwards making sure we could hire the van for the weekend of our wedding. I highly recommend anyone who wants something a little different to a traditional wedding car to contact Hire a Kombi. “Layla” is sure to be the icing on the cake for your special day!

Wow, I can’t recommend George and Alyce’s services enough, great people and very well maintained Kombi’s.
I will be telling everyone to use them and hopefully we’ll get to use them again very soon 🙂

I was so excited to book this trip as I have always dreamed of travelling the Great Ocean Road in a Kombi.
Alyce and George were lovely to talk with and so very helpful in the planning of things.
The Kombi’s ran so well and had everything we needed on board!
When one dreams about a trip like this for so long and then it finally happens it sometimes isn’t what you hoped for but this trip was 100 x better!! We enjoyed it so much we didn’t want to come home!
The Kombi’s ran perfectly and we had all 4 of us sleeping in the van and the kids loved being in the pop top…
Thank YOU for making the best trip possible!

“I was in serious trouble. My kombi (Wally) wouldn’t start despite the best efforts of the RACV and a local mechanic.  Most importantly it was the night before my best friend’s wedding where Wally was the wedding vehicle!
Enter George.  He took my call late on Friday night and came to my rescue without hesitation.  He immediately diagnosed the problem (ignition switch), offered to take Wally back to Diamond Creek to repair while I took Bella (his kombi) to the wedding the next morning.  The wedding was spectacular as a result.
In George and Alyce I discovered two wonderful people.  This is clearly evident in their beautiful and well cared for fleet of magnificent kombis.  I can recommend no service or people more than these two gems.”

We were stoked to be the very first customers of Hire a Kombi! My family and I had planned a trip to travel the Great Ocean Road and we wanted to do it in style – and Kombi style is the best. “Bella” was a gorgeous girl, beautiful to drive and suited us perfectly. George and Alyce are fantastic people to deal with, always accommodating and their love of Kombis is a deep one. Hire a Kombi is a unique venture, one which we would recommend to anyone.

If you are considering hiring a proper old school Kombi Camper Van then you need look no further than hireakombi.com.

George was brilliant, nothing was too much trouble and his and Alyce’s infectious passion for vintage Kombi’s was evident from the outset.

We hired Bella, a 1970’s bay for a five day mother and daughter Ocean road trip; Bella was everything we hoped for and more, completely reliable, comfortable and great fun.

We didn’t stop smiling the entire time we had her – the hardest part of our fantastic trip was handing her back to her loving owners!’
