We had the Britz Venturer for 20 days. The van was comfortable and easy to drive (automatic). We really enjoyed our trip and the van made it so easy to change plans at the last minute. Couple of small things-we saw quite a few ‘Mighty’ vans (which are much cheaper than Britz due to apparently being a lower spec) and there was literally no difference to the interior or exterior. It seems the only difference is age as we were told our Britz was due to become a Mighty soon-little bit annoying considering we paid quite a bit more for the Britz! Also the gauges didn’t work to tell us when the waste water was full and judging by the amount (and smell) of what came out the first time we emptied it-it hadn’t been done in a while!! We mentioned this on drop off and were told it’s a common fault.
Also bear in mind there is an extra fuel tax charge when you return the vehicle which they don’t tell you about when booking. This cost us around £200 so not a small amount.
The campervan experience is a great one but shop around for vans as we saw some really nice Jucy ones that people rated highly.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 96 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
In general the experience was good with rhe rental and the trip.
The camper van I’ve rented was good but it could be better designed, for example it would be good if it was having the cooking materials inside the van as they do with jucy without the need to open the back door to open the fridge for example, it wasn’t practical when raining.
Otherwise the rest of the trip was good.
One more thing, the tom tom gps was not updated, for some new highways close to Auckland airport and in roas to Wellington it was showing the wrong way.
The best express return is a good option
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
No extra insurance for windscreen/tyres available for relocations, repeated misleading communication about return time, LPG bottle refill required on return. Positive overall experience including pick-up and drop off facilities/staff in Christchurch and Queenstown.
Great once your on the road. Slow check in too many campers so few staff. Van was all we expected & well equipped. Tom tom got us there the long way a couple of times but we got there. Loved the countryside and from the passengers side enjoyed the journey. Be great to come back & linger longer in some of the beautiful spots we found
Britz is an amazing comany to deal with. The overall check-in check-out experience is smooth and the staff (acknowledging the price paid for the hire I guess) does not make a fuss over small things like missing wine glass that I managed to break on the first night.
The vehicle itself is being serviced regularily which is apparent when driving. The drive is smooth, the output adequate to the overall weight of the vehicle. The cruise control makes things easier on long stretches.
The camper is fully equipped with everything you can imagine and more (the built-in barbecue meant that we could have a steak dinner every night). You literally need to pack clothes and personal hygiene products and off you go (we were worried that we need to buy a cork-screw for our special celebratory bottle of wine, but found one in the utensils’ cupboard). There is ample storage space and even a safety deposit box for your valuables.
The hirer recommends that you use a powered site every second-third night, but we hav gone for as long as three nights at unpowered sites (in summer). Just make sure that your water is topped-up and the solar panel at the roof and running engine will ensure that you don’t run out of power for your fridge, water pump or lights. The in car GPS could do with an update, but we made sure that the roads are not actually closed by referring to google maps. GOS is a beefed-up TomTom so it’s got a Campermate app built - very useful if you travel without a solid plan. Be mindful of ‘serial moaners’ some campsites turned out to be amazing, but got a bad review because there was no free WiFi (!!!).
We choose a Camper trip for our Honeymoon and if I had the same budget and time I would definitely do the same thing again.
We had a good experience with Britz. The pick-up process in Christchurch was straightforward, and the return process in Queenstown was easy. When we noticed an issue with the van (water on the bottom inside) right before we left, they promptly checked it out and ended up giving us a different van to make sure we didn't have any problems on the trip. Everything else went smoothly. We camped at DOC sites and holiday parks and didn't end up needing to use the chemical toilet in our van. We had the action pod model, so it would have been tough to use the toilet because we would have had to fold up the bed to use it. Otherwise, the action pod was convenient - the stove/refrigerator/sink unit in the back worked well (once we got a lighter/longer matches for the stove since it didn't have an ignition switch) and we felt that we had enough room for 2 people if we kept organized inside.
We at Rankers NZ, love to meet travellers on the road and share in some of the freedom. That's why Rankers NZ invites 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.
