Great family summer vacation around NZ's East Cape by camper van. Flexibility to make up the plan on the fly and maximise the locations.
Service Britz was perfect. Campervan was the right size and had everything we needed. It was a brand new one (Discovery type) but the way the furniture was made was very poor. Screws that were loose, and locks of closets and curtains that were very poor installed. Also the side skirt was coming loose (vibration) at the end of our three weeks.
The best way to explore NZ is by car and a camper van is very convenient (albeit a little expensive) way to do so. For those novices who do not want / know how to set up tents and camp out in DOC approved sites, a self-contained camper van like the one we have is really convenient! The vehicle we have (a Toyota Hi-Ace type van) is also just small enough for those not familiar with big trucks. Of course this means having to find public showers everyday, which is a little bit inconvenient but that's how it is. Hopefully next time there'll be more public shower sites near DOC campsites!

We rented a 4-berth caravan for a 10-day trip around the South Island. We originally wanted a campervan and I was worried about driving the larger vehicle, but really it was no problem and I was grateful for the extra room for our 2 adults and 1 teen. The staff was very responsive to our planning questions prior to the trip. When we arrived to pick up the caravan in Christchurch, Zack was really helpful and conscientious about walking us through everything and making sure it was properly cleaned and stocked for us. The only pain was the massive insurance deposit, but all providers require something similar so there's no getting around it. All in all it was a great experience and I would rent from them again.
We are positive about our experience with Britz, the friendly staff at Christchurch and Auckland as well as the campervan. The only negative point was the long waiting time at the pick-up location Christchurch, almost 3 hours. Even in early spring. You win maybe only 10min. time by checking-in online, which we had done. The location at the airport is a a combined Britz, Maui, Kea and Mighty operation, so very long waiting times for all these branches. Keeping this in mind it's a bad idea to go straight from the airport to the depot. Better book the night before a hotel at the airport. Sudima for example, with a free shuttle to the campervan depot. The received documentation and information about the campervan were more than sufficient. The campervan, a Voyager, was one year old, clean and in a good condition. It's advertised as a 4-berth (2 to sleep in the top bunk bed, 2 in the rear dinette) but we found it difficult to believe that it would really work with 4 adults. It is to our opinion a comfortable campervan for 2 adults and a young child. You need (part of) the bunk bed to store your stuff and bedding material that you do't use. The new Voyagers have a PortaPotti, which we did not use because we always stayed at campings with good bathroom facilities. Driving this campervan was a pleasure (automatic, diesel, reversing camera). We had a small incident with the campervan. The staff at the Auckland deport dealt with it in a good way and our insurance bond was refunded, minus the cost of the claim, after 3 weeks.
We love to meet travellers on the road and share in some of the freedom. That's why we invite you to come and stay for free at our chill riverside overnight parking area in the Motueka Valley at the top of the South Island.
