In 2006 DriveAway Holidays proudly took out our first National Travel Industry Award in the "Best Car Rental Company" category, having been nominated in 2005 for the same award. In 2009, we entered the NTIA Hall of Fame for winning the same award 3 years running - “Best Car Rental Wholesaler” in Australia. In 2010, 2011 & 2012 we were named as a Finalist in the Best Wholesaler International Product category, recognised by the Australian Travel industry as a market leader. In 2009, 2010 and again in 2011, DriveAway Holidays has been named a finalist in the Australasian division of the World Travel Awards, in the 'business car hire' category.

DriveAway Holidays continues to work extensively in New Zealand and was nominated for the Best Car/Campervan Rental Operator category at the New Zealand Travel Industry Awards in 2012. We’re thrilled by this honour, bestowed on upon us by the New Zealand Travel Agents who have recognised DriveAway Holidays' commitment to providing outstanding service.

At DriveAway we understand that happy employees make happy clients, and we do our best to ensure that we treat our employees with the same respect they show to our valued clientele.
