The Travellers Autobarn Story
Travellers Autobarn opened in Sydney in late 1993, at a time when there were already a number of dealers selling cars to backpackers. However, these businesses were car dealerships first and foremost, and did not really understand the needs of travellers. From the outset, Travellers Autobarn focused entirely on these special needs. As ex-backpackers, all of us decided to provide the kind of service we would expect ourselves. What you see today is the result. None of the car dealers that were selling to backpackers in 1993 still exist today!
All our branches are in the heart of backpacker areas and since 1993 we have opened several locations around Australia.
Sydney in 1993
Cairns in 1999
Brisbane & Melbourne in 2002
Darwin & Perth in 2005
We are also proud to announce that we have opened branches in New Zealand, the USA and Japan:
- Auckland & Christchurch in 2016
- Los Angeles, Las Vegas & San Francisco in 2019
- Tokyo, Japan in 2023
Travellers Autobarn knows Australia & New Zealand inside out – it’s our home! We also know cars and love our job. Basically, the idea of travelling around Australia/New Zealand by bus is simply out of the question.
