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.

Travellers Autobarn is proud to celebrate their 20th anniversary this November - quite an achievement in today's tourism industry. Travellers Autobarn was established way back in 1993 and still trades from its first ever store at 177 William St, Kings Cross. 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. Travellers Autobarn 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, owner of Travellers Autobarn, 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!"
Travellers Autobarn is hosting the anniversary party on the 7th of November 2013 from where it all started - the Sydney Showroom - based in Kings Cross.
