Your guide Tony is not only an experienced remote area tour guide, he's also a Cert IV qualified trainer and assessor in four wheel driving. And he's a friendly bloke too!
Take your off-road trailer to places you won't find or aren't confident to go to on your own . Help and advice when you need it.
Get the practical mechanical help you need if things don't go to plan. From tyre changes to changing shocks (and a lot more).
We offer a safety net for people who may not be as confident about venturing into remote locations by themselves. There's also the knowledge experience that goes into the planning. If you haven't been somewhere before, it's tough to get the most out of a trip. We know exactly where to go, how long it takes to get there, where to camp, what the facilities are like and how to best use your time to see all of the highlights.
Interestingly enough, this scenario happens very rarely. We require that your vehicle is well maintained and inspected by a mechanic before the trip and we ask you to carry certain spares. Most mechanical issues don't stop you from moving. We will do everything we can to get you mobile again and in the case that your vehicle needs expert attention, we can get your vehicle to a mechanic or to a position where it can be recovered by a flatbed truck.
It is recommended that you have the highest level of NRMA/RAQC type cover because it can help with your expenses if the worst happens. Travel insurance is also highly recommended so you are not out of pocket if you cannot complete a trip.
