"Next" level vanlife... Incredible!
We enjoyed our whole experience and journey with our Next camper.
From the start with the first email to dropping us back to the airport it was so friendly and helpful all the way... Kristina and Stephan are amazing in what they do. The camper van is build with lots of love for the tiniest detail. Amazing!
We felt home right away. Sleeping so comfortably, great kitchen to cook with, well equipped and lounge atmosphere inside makes rainy days brighter. So happy we found next Campers for our trip and have been absolutely happy.

Vanlife - "next" level... Unglaublich!
Wir haben unsere gesamte Reise und Erfahrung mit Next Campers von Anfang bis Ende genossen. Von der ersten Email bis zum Abschieds Flughafen Transfer war alles perfekt und reibungslos. Tolle Kommunikation mit vielen Tipps. Kristina und Stephan sind mega freundlich und hilfsbereit. Der Camper ist mit soviel Aufwand und Liebe zum Detail gebaut. Wahnsinnig toll.
Wir haben uns direkt zuhause gefühlt. Super bequem zum schlafen, tolle Küche und Ausstattung. Innen wie eine kleine lounge, da ist sogar der Regentag weniger trüb. Wir sind so froh Next Campers für unsere Reise gefunden zu haben. Super happy 😊

We had a great experience with Next Campers right from the beginning! Communication was always seamless and the owners of the company are really nice. We appreciated the pick-up/drop off at the airport and the all-inclusive service around our booking which made our holiday really hassle free. We liked our van Next Breeze and all the amenities that came with it. We can fully recommend Next Campers!

We loved driving around in the Next Campervan. The interieur is really cozy with cushions and lounge light, which was very nice during rainy nights. The van was strong and well maintained. The van is equipped with all necessaries for camping and cooking, plus of good quality. The bed is good and does not feel like camping. The solar panel was always full so we never had to stay at a powered site. Most important, communication with Stephan and Kristina was very pleasant. They responded quick and helped us out when needed (someone damaged the taillight). Part of the service is pick-up and bringing you away afterrwards. Those extra's made the whole experience personal and comfortable. All in all we would definitely recommend Next Campervans

I'm going to get right to the point. I cannot recommend Next Campers enough!!! Simply incredible experience with them from start to finish. Kristina and Stephan are amazing and so is their camper. I spent hours and hours searching for a campervan to use for my New Zealand holiday, probably too many hours searching to be honest. But I am so glad that I found Next Campers. There are a lot of shady camper rentals in Christchurch, but this is not one of them.

One thing I want to point out is the attention to detail that both Kristina and Stephan put into their product. Their "All inclusive package" truly means it, they provide anything and everything you could ever need on your New Zealand adventure. For me its the little details that make the difference. They even provide most companies overlook such as a charger and holder for your cell phones.

Kristina and Stephan, thank you for making our New Zealand holiday so enjoyable!!!

Ein sensationelles Erlebnis!
Kristina und Stephan haben uns persönlich vom Flughafen abgeholt und uns nach einem erfrischenden kaltgetränk in unser Zuhause auf Zeit eingewiesen! Wir buchten den next one für knapp 5 Wochen. Von Anfang bis zum Schluss fühlten wir uns Pudel wohl. Uns wurde geholfen eine perfekte Reise Route zu planen und falls wir irgendwelche fragen hatten konnten wir beide jederzeit kontaktieren. Wir haben selten im einem Hotelbett zu gemütlich geschlafen wie in unserem cozy queensize Bett im next one.
Vielen Dank an Kristina und Stephan für diese ausgewöhnlicje Zeit und den tollen Service.

Wir können Next Campers nur jedem empfehlen.

We had an awesome trip with our next Camper. The booking was easy and we felt safe during our whole trip. We got picked up and got a tour with all explanations there are to the van. In the 4 weeks of travelling everything worked how it should. And we enjoyed the comfort our next campervan provided.

Next Campers was truly amazing! We loved the time we spent in this very well equipped and pristine vehicle. Kristina and Stephan were very welcoming since the beginning and available to talk if we had any issues at any time. The camper van is easy to drive and the bed is very very comfortable. Everything is provided in the kitchen (very organized!) and there is tons of space to store your stuff. We spent a great deal of time looking into different options to travel for 2 weeks in the south island and we are VERY happy with our choice. Looking at the vans that are driving around NZ, we think this is the best option! :)

I love the Next Campers vans. The whole interior design, the materials used, it’s like a real living room and kitchen on wheels. The whole interior is hand made, with love and the comfort of the traveler in mind. You just think of an USB to charge your phone, right there is one. And there, and over there, too, connected to the secondary battery and the solar panel on the roof. All items in the kitchen provided are of high quality. There’s even chairs and a camping table at no extra costs. There’s a heater, a hot water bottle for her cold feet on board too. Forget emails and call centres, Kristina and Stephan pick up the phone anytime and make sure you are well looked after.
I would wholeheartedly recommend booking with Next Campers.

We can strongly recommend Next Campers as we really enjoyed travelling with one of their campervans for almost 3 weeks. The Van (we had a NEXT ONE) is in an excellent state and the equipment is well maintained and thoughtfully put together. Having solar power and gas made us independent for the whole ride, charging cell phones was never an issue.
But even more outstanding than the van itself was the service and contact throughout the whole renting process. Every bit of contact makes you notice that they are in this with their whole heart and really want you to have a great time in New Zealand. You can approach them any time with any problem during the travels (we didn't have to though). So all in all 100% recommendation from the two of us!

Omg YES YES AND YES! Epic Van and Epic customer service by Stephan and Christina! Can't thank these guys enough! Super accomodating and holy moly the van is comfy! Rented the Hiace for a few weeks for my solo adventure in Nz hunting for some waves. The guys helped my out with my itinerary and gave me some good locations to visit, my surfboard easily fit in the van (6,9ft in case another surfer is wondering) whilst leaving me enough space to be comfortable! Through and through awesome experience , awesome van, awesome people ! Can't recommend them enough. Cheers guys.

Due to the recommemdation of a friend we rented the Next One (Campervan type) for 2 weeks in Dec 2019 to explore the South Island of NZ.
Kristina and Stephan helped us planning our route with some good tips and also cared a lot about us during our stay. We have been picked up and dropped of at the airport in Christchurch - a service we appreciated. The campervan has a big and comfortable mattress (no sleeping problems at all) and a real refrigerator (not a cool box) which was working all the time like the light and the USB charging slots (due to solar panel and second battery). During our trip we had to reorganize our trip due to 1 week raining on the west coast. Also in this case they have been a good adviser.
Thanks for the great campervan and taking so much care of us during our stay! Bettina & Steve

Just ended our trip with Next Campers and it was absolutely the most amazing, easy, simple process. Kristina and her partner are so kind, they treat you like friends and are always there for you. They offer free pick ups and drop offs from the airport which is a lifesaver and supply you with EVERYTHING you need at no extra cost.

The camper itself was perfect, we got the smaller one and it’s a bit small if you are tall but otherwise is perfect. There’s a wee fridge, amazing comfy blankets, maps, board games, all cleaning supply’s, towels and amazing friendly service. Very easy to drive and convenient, no issues at all with the van.

They are a small company with only about 6 campers but have a big impact and are even trying to incorporate little things to make it more environmentally friendly.

100% would recommend to anyone thinking of renting a camper van in New Zealand.

Thank you Next Campers, you guys are amazing

We had an excellent trip, thanks to both the van itself and the helpfulness of the Next Campers managers. Communication with them beforehand was smooth and efficient throughout the booking process, and our reception on arrival in Christchurch was friendly and convivial. Kristina picked us up at our hotel and dropped us off at the end, which was a great saver of time and effort for us - much appreciated. She also gave us some good tips, such as the Campermate app, which proved very useful. As for the van itself, it was easy to drive, well-equipped and comfortable, with the conversion from sitting room to bedroom and vice versa being done in a couple of minutes. We had no problems with it, but we knew that if we did, Next Campers would do all in their power to provide assistance. Great service all round, and a thoroughly enjoyable experience.

We hired the Next One Campervan and absolutely delighted with it! The bed is big and comfy and being able to cook inside when it’s wet and rainy outside was great. A good sized fridge enabled us to stock up for several days at a time. The camper was easy to drive with great visibility- the parking mirrors were especially useful! There were several usb/socket chargers in the van which was really useful and having solar panels meant we didn’t need sites with power. Stefan and Kristina care passionately about their new business and their customers - and they deserve to succeed with the thought and care they have put into their Campervans - one of which was our fab and comfy home over the last 2 1/2 weeks.

We used Next Campers for a two week trip around the South Island of New Zealand, we opted for the Next Breeze Campervan which is the smaller of the two options, it was easy to drive. We had a really great time, the van was spacious and comfortable. The bed was easy to put together each day. Next Campers provided all of the bedding and pillows, it was very cosy.
The van also included a little fridge and camping stove with all of the cutlery, plates and cookware that we needed which was incredibly helpful. They even had a ‘grocery store’ set up in the office where we could take items that other campers had left to get us started. I thought this was a very nice touch.
We ran into trouble with a flat tyre but Kristina and Stefan were incredibly helpful and we were back on the road very quickly.
We stayed at both DOC Campsites and Holiday Parks but the van is self-contained so you could Freedom Camp if you wanted to.
We would definitely recommend Next Campers to anyone considering a Campervan Holiday in New Zealand. The vans are great quality and the owners were very friendly and helpful.

We used Next Campers for a ten day trip around South Island. We were collected from the airport and given a tour around our beautifully decked out, brand new van. The van itself drove nicely, was easy to park and due to the rooftop solar panel didn't require a powered campsite at all during our ten days. The camping table and chairs which are included were really useful, likewise the little fridge/freezer. The van came with all utensils, hoses etc that we needed, no extra add ons. Decor has been really tastefully done inside and we were cosy with the duvet and blanket. Only tiny issue was a slightly sticky side door but this was easily manageable using the back door. Really great experience with a small, caring company. Would highly recommend using Next Campers, even gave us a number to call them on 24/7 in case we had any questions or anything went wrong which thankfully we didn't need to use.

We've had an amazing time from beginning to end. The team was very helpful with the booking and Stephan came personally to pick us up from the airport. Since the company was close-by, we arrived quickly at the pick-up station and already received some interesting information on the way. The van we booked, Next ONE, was spacious and very clean and tidy, the interior was nicely decorated and everything felt very sturdy and new and made us feel comfortable right from the beginning. We were shown how to set up the bed and made the mistake of laying down on it, which made it real hard to get up after the long flight because it is just too cosy. After we managed, Stephan made us coffee, showed us the rest of our temporary home on wheels and we were good to go.
It was nice to have solar panels on the roof to be able to charge our devices inside of the car, and thanks to the kitchen inside of the van, we could make some delicious breakfast, half asleep and snuggling, while it was cold and rainy outside.
The van itself was easy to drive and brought us safely everywhere we wanted to go – including some great spots Stephan recommended that we would never have found without him!
We didn't have any issues, but we felt that if there were any, we could always rely on a quick reply.
If we could do the trip all over again, we wouldn't change it one bit.
Thank you!

We loved our experience with Next! They’re a young company with a small fleet & they really care about quality, customer service and the small details. They were always quick to communicate & extremely helpful. But even more important, the van was extremely clean, modern and VERY comfortable to sleep in. This was our first camper experience & we couldn’t believe how much we loved sleeping in the van — it honestly felt as comfy as sleeping in our own bed at home. They provided all the cookware we needed (and we love to cook) & we loved that the kitchen was inside the van because there were plenty of rainy, windy evenings. All in all, a great experience, not a single complaint.

An amazing experience! Kristina really went above and beyond with our trip, offering to pick us up from the airport, even shouting us an uber! It was great having her on the other end of the phone whenever we needed her, which was very rare. The van is great, fit a 6ft5 giant in it no problem. Loved being able to cook inside when it was wet or cold, and opening up the curtains to a new view every morning was just magical. Would recommend Next to anyone! Thanks guys xx

My partner and I travelled the South Island of NZ for 21 days and rented our campervan through Next Campers.

After picking us up from the airport, Kristina invited us for coffee at her house and provided a good orientation on how to use the van. The van is well-though-out, clean and clever build. We loved the decor too!
On top of this, Kristina and her team were always answering our questions throughout our trip, day and night. The self-contained van allowed us to spend the night at free campsites which saved us a lot of money! The bed is very big and soo comfortable! The van has a extra thick mattress which was amazing. We saw other companies with very thin ones which are hard and very uncomfortable. There was plenty of space to store food and clothing in the van which was also very nice.

The van was easy to drive, easier than my car at home. I would definitely recommend Next Campers to anyone wanting to make the most of their NZ holiday. Thank you Kristina and the whole team for going over and above to make our experience the best possible!
