This is a fantastic option for a trip to Derby. A smooth pick up, great service and nicely set up utes. We had 9 gents in 2 cars and it was perfect for shuttling ourselves around Derby and Blue Tier. I look forward to using DRE again on our next trip down to ride at Derby.

Drive Ride Explore has to be one of the best ways to do a MTB adventure in Tasmania. Candace and Kane have thought about everything you will need and they are super friendly and extremely helpful. As for the vehicles they are spotless, in near new condition, superbly setup and cheap in comparison to hiring from the standard car hire mobs. Stop thinking about it call Candace fast, the secret is out and they are busy. Thanks team Drive Ride Explore you guys helped make our huge Tas adventure epic. We’ll be booking again for the next trip.

Super company, everything is easy – from pick up & drop off from Launceston Airport, to building and dismantling bikes in their workshop, to storing bike bags, and the ute is fantastic with all the little things that make a massive difference to a travelling adventure. Candace & Kane are friendly, professional and have thought of everything! Our go-to on our next adventure to Tassie. Thanks guys.

Kane and Candace accommodated everything we could possibly need in a MTB specific car hire. It was extremely convenient having and airport transfer at both ends as well as being able to store our bike bags at the depot whilst we were out riding. The car is perfectly set up with 4 staggered Yakima racks. The bikes are locked securely to the car with no contact between them. If you’re planning to ride Derby/Maydena or a variety of other trails around Tasmania then look no further. As a complete package it doesn’t come any better than this!
