Well, I'm not sure if this was either the best roadie ever, or the best roadie ever orrrr quite possibly the best roadie ever!?After starting my 'Covid redundancy road trip party' with just a 3 week booking so not to get over my head, the ease to just call up for extensions week after week through Kerry and Terry looking after me from the Escape rentals base in Christchurch was amazing plus they were so excited for my trip and stoked to hear where I was up to each time I spoke with them. I received an upgrade to a self-contained van called Sunglasses on arrival and choofed off to discover so many nooks and crannies of NZ I didn't know where there (i'm a dual Aussie and NZ citizen), drove my way through all sorts of weather, and road conditions, surfed the freezing waters of the Catlins and the slightly warmer ones of Raglan and Northland, snowboarded out of Wanaka, hiked my butt off, hot springs my aching muscles back to some normality and literally cried when I had to leave my beloved 'Sunglasses' behind in Auckland.
Thank you so much Terry and Kerry for taking such good care of me, I will continue to brag about Escape Rentals and my NZ roadie that exceeded all my expectations!!

Van was perfect for our trip around the south island, we warmly survived the winter roadie. The staff were extremely friendly and a good laugh. Set us up with everything we needed. I was impressed with the information they gave us about freedom camping, campsites and being a generally good kiwi. Thanks guys!

Great people to work with. They are especially considerate during this lockdown - changing drop-off Location and not charging during level 4

Hi Harold
Thanks for your review.
Lockdown certainly was a strange time for everyone.
We are travellers as well and know what's important and when support is needed.

Great experience. Great check-in and drop off of the van. No problems at all during the rental time. Can always recommend.

Collected our van from the Auckland office - the staff were super friendly and very helpful in showing us our campervan. The van was clean and well stocked with everything you could need. We had no troubles throughout our stay (3 weeks). The bed was comfy. The staff at the Christchurch depo were just as friendly. Would highly recommend.

Sadly our experience of escape rentals was most disappointing. The condition we received the van in was completely unacceptable with the following faults: ripped and stained cushions, broken passenger window that slipped through the door and unable to be used or closed fully, broken AC, holes and rust inside the sleeping area, unusable stove, rubber seal had come away from both side doors and prevented the door closing fully. We were not offered another van on finding these faults, and on return of the van we were told that this was below their usual standard and would be offered a partial refund, however there has been no reply in over a week from the manager. These are high use vans and there is an expected wear and tear but this was unacceptable condition and it fell short compared to similarly priced competitors, which I've booked with in the past.

Kia Ora Mel and thanks for the review... We’d like to respond as follows: 1.You chose not to use our 24 hour Roadside Assistance service during your hire which would have remedied these issues in a matter of minutes. It’s therefore difficult for us to provide compensation or address issues if we’re not given the opportunity to fix the problem in the first instance.
2. Despite this, we still agreed to a refund which you accepted and we processed immediately. I’m not sure what else you were expecting further? 3. It appears the A/C was not broken, the stove was tested and working when it departed our depot and the rubber seals were all in place when you left. Not sure what has occurred here but again, all of this would have been addressed via our on-the-road service 4. We constantly check our pricing to ensure we are competitive and our records confirm we were considerably cheaper than our primary competitors for travel during this time. 5. We don’t misrepresent ourselves and the age and condition of our vans is accurately detailed on our website. It’s worth noting you chose to book one of our cheaper (older) standard vans and perhaps one of our newer self-contained vehicles may have been more suitable.
We have many positive reviews and happy hirers but it’s obvious Escape wasn't for you and I’m sorry about that. We wish you all the best with your future travels.
Cheers

Everything was great.
People are very professional and very welcoming. Van by itself was very nice looking and was working very well. No trouble at all. Everything needed was inside and we were happy to called it home for our trip. We miss this life now :)
I kindly recommend this company
