June 2023

We hired Pippa from Kool Kombi & Bug Hire for our wedding day transport after our previously organised transport had fallen through. Kathleen was great to deal with, and Josh (our driver) went above and beyond on our wedding day - we couldn't have asked for more. Pippa was gorgeous and the team were fantastic. We highly recommend Kool Kombi & Bug Hire to anyone who's looking for transport for an important event.

We used many of the decor items from Kool Kombi & Bug Hire like wine barrels, wooden tables, stools, giant janga etc. The products are very well maintained and in excellent condition. The wine barrels are extremely well looked after.

We decided to hire a Kombi for our wedding day because we wanted a more relaxed feel and had to transport a large wedding party to the venue and to and from photos. Kool Kombi and Bug Hire have multiple Kombi’s to choose from and a range of different colours to suit your theme. Colleen was easy to communicate with and clearly outlined what could be included in our package. On our wedding day Colleen picked up the boys from one location, the girls from another, did two trips to a local photography location and back to the venue. During our ceremony it was raining, and we had left the umbrellas in the car. Colleen brought them out to us so that we were able to stay dry. She provided us with water to keep us hydrated, which is highly important on your wedding day! Colleen had wedding themed playlist which added to the fun during the trips. We took many photos with the Kombi and will enjoy the memories we made for years to come. Overall, Colleen was great at communicating, friendly, provided us with a relaxed travel experience and the Kombi was immaculate. Highly recommend!

We hired both a kombi van for our arrival and quite a few decorations for our reception. Service was absolutely incredible and all the items received were in top nick condition.

We had Kombi ‘Puff’ on our wedding day. Colleen was absolutely amazing! I was so nervous leading up to walking down the aisle and had lots of last minute questions that Colleen answered, she even helped fix up my dress as I got out of the Kombi! The kombi was air conditioned, had eskys and even champagne glasses! Couldn’t recommend them enough.

What is the best wedding car for a beach wedding?

Kool Kombi & Bug Hire

Hi, We believe a Kombi is the best car for a beach wedding. Truly iconic beach/surfing vehicle.

Plus you can take the whole bridal party in 1 kombi (seats 7 passengers) and the grooms in another.


Our Kombis Puff and Paddy have air conditioning as well to help with the hotter days.

Kool Kombi & Bug Hire

HI, Yes we supply white wedding ribbons for the front of each Kombi. If you are after a specific colour we advise you to source and supply to ensure the colour is correct.

Kind regards Colleen - Kool Kombi Bug Hire.

Does the groom normally pay for the wedding car?

Kool Kombi & Bug Hire

No set rule. Our bookings come from a variety of brides, grooms, parents/grandparents of the bride, friends of the groom and bride.
