Alice to Melbourne

Xuan's story of her campervan relocation experience with coseats:


We recently went on our outback journey trip to Uluru from Melbourne. And one of the best thing that happened here was the relocation deals from coseats. To me, I’ve always heard of this relocation thing but never really experienced it by person before. I am so GLAD that I made this decision and found out this really good deal on coseats for just $5 per day for our 4WD, which is just perfect for outback roads.
[...] And coseats.com is the website that provide users with which companies are offering what kind of deals in which timeframe. I had to admit this idea is amazing, and it is also very user friendly! Highly recommended here!

Crossing the continent

For the German speakers, here's Nomadic Vic's story of relocating a campervan from Perth to Melbourne:
Ich habe mich der Herausforderung gestellt und bin mit einem Van quer durch Australien gefahren. 3700km von Perth im Westen nach Melbourne im Südosten. Ich war 7 Tage unterwegs- alleine in einem “Relocation”-Van, quer durch das australische Outback, wo ich 2 Tage verschollen war, über zwei Zeitzonen, 146 km ohne Kurve auf der längsten Gerade-Aus-Strecke Australiens, Hunderte von Kilometern entlang der Großen Australischen Bucht mit ihrer atemberaubenden Küstenlinie und auf der spektakulären Great Ocean Road, die sich dicht am windgepeitschten Südlichen Ozean entlang schlängelt more...

Three ladies and a campervan

[...] During these fun packed days, I also had my eye on Coseats looking for a suitable camper to relocate to get us back to Perth. On Sunday, I found a 5 berth available to pick up on the Tuesday... perfect! [...] We had 6 days to get the camper back to the Perth depot and with no fixed agenda for everything in between, our sleepovers were: Eighty Mile Camp, Karratha, Coral Bay, Monkey Mia and Geraldton. 6 days was a good length of time. Marlee's story...

Another happy camper relocation story

Sitting in a hostel in Perth, Australia, the most isolated city in the world, my boyfriend and I decided on the spur of the moment to check out camper van relocations. Back tracking a little…. we had already rented a campervan from Melbourne to Brisbane and had the time of our lives. After which, we took our time travelling up to Cairns and then took a flight to Perth.
So there we were in Perth deciding on our next travel move. We were a little apprehensive, but once we found coseats camper relocs we couldn’t believe our eyes! Read more...

Rideshare Safety Tips

Ridesharing can be great fun, but sharing a ride with a stranger can be a bit daunting, especially if you have never done it before. To make sure you have an amazing experience we've put together some tips to keep you safe.

Facebook and social media profiles

Browsing social media profiles can give you a good idea of the other person's interests, friends and family. It can also be a good way to find out about the other person's personality, interests and if you share common ground. 

Read reviews

People can leave reviews on CoSeats so make sure you read them. Reviews are a great way to find out more about other people you want to share a ride with so please always leave reviews after you share a ride. The more reviews, the safer CoSeats will be for everyone.

Get to know the other person

We recommend meeting people you want to share a ride with in person before your trip. Choose a public place to meet up and get to know each other if possible. If you can't meet up beforehand, make sure you talk to the other person beforehand to make sure you have found a suitable rideshare buddy.

Establish some ground rules

Make sure you are both on the same page before you head off. Agree on your trip details such as the cost (including how and when you will pay); pick up and drop off times; breaks and sightseeing; is smoking allowed etc.

Trust your gut feeling

If there is anything that makes you feel uncomfortable about the other person, trust your instincts and find another ride. It’s better to be safe than sorry!

Share your plans with family and friends

Once you decide to share a ride, make sure to let friends or family know of your plans. Agree on check in points throughout the trip for your relative or friend to call you, and let them know when you intend on arriving at your destination.  If you arrange for someone to call you, be mindful that you may not have mobile phone coverage everywhere.

Driving license and number plate

Get a photo of the vehicle's number plate and ask if it's okay to also send a photo of the driver’s license to your friend or relative.

Public places for pick up and drop off

Keep your home, work or friends / family addresses private by arranging public pick up and drop off points.

Exchange contact details

We recommend exchanging emergency contact details beforehand with the person you're sharing a ride with. Make sure you also write down important numbers in case you don’t have access to your mobile.

Take your ID and some money

Always keep a credit or debit card, your ID and some cash with you in case you get stranded or separated from your driver for any reason.

Stay away from remote places

It is always safer to stay in public places, where there are other people to help in case of an emergency. For example, if you are going to be camping overnight, try to stay in a public campsite with other people rather than in a remote location with a stranger.

And last but not least... enjoy your trip!
