Sydney, NSW (PRWEB) November 22, 2007
Thousands of backpackers around Australia had their say, and their favourite transport provider is Travellers Auto Barn. Beating out competition from bus, rail, airline and other self-drive companies, the award was accepted by the excited Sydney team at the Golden Backpack Awards ceremony in Sydney on November 7th. Managing Director, Peter Burke said that it was well deserved recognition for his teams around the country:
"We've got a great team and they deserve to be recognised. We consistently receive the best feedback in the industry. It's not only because we represent the best value and best way for backpackers to explore Australia, but also because we were all travellers ourselves and understand the passion of this kind of traveller and what they want. Our range of brand new Chubby vans has really captured the imagination of the budget traveller and they have been extremeky popular."
The brand new Chubby campers, a range of 2 berth vans with various eye-catching graphics, are the latest addition to Travellers Auto Barn's rental fleet that also includes HiTop campervans, station wagons, 4WD bushcampers and compact cars. With six locations around Australia, the company has also been selling vehicles to backpackers since 1993.
The Golden Backpack Awards are the only industry awards specifically for the Australian and New Zealand backpacker tourism industry. Presented by TNT Magazine, backpackers were able to vote online or by fax/mail for a number of categories for their favourite companies in the regional backpacker market. Over 3500 votes were cast in this year's competition.
