I passed two months in a wonderful van! It was really comfortable to drive it, to sleep inside and to cook.
The staff is very helpful!
The price of the hire was cheaper than the other conpanies for the season where I rented it.
And to finish, It’s always easy and friendly to recognize some other vans Escape on the road! You’ll do some nice meeting on the road!

As a retired couple we are probably not the typical Escape customers, but we spent a month touring South Island in April and had a great time. The Escape van did well - no issues and 100% reliable and comfortable. The facilities are very basic but functional. All the Escape vans are all unique which is a nice individual touch - we had Boat Builder which we renamed "Ruddy Duck".

Hi Jeremy
"Ruddy Duck" may stick...i like it.
Jeremy it is interesting, we have a variety of age choosing to use Escape and most of the 30,000 hires would agree with your comments.
Thank you

Escape Campervan Rentals. Great company to work with. Check in process was clear. Fun to drive on the left side of the road. Tips: check all elements for repair before sending out, warn people about the stupid sandflys,

Reviewed 5 months ago

Escape Campervan Rentals responds:

Haha..yes the sand fly's on the Westcoast of the South Island are infamous due to the rainfall which also gives us the stunning untamed natural wilderness of rivers and rainforests. I am not too sure on your comment of checking all elements for repair prior to sending out is regarding, but all vehicles prior to being hired go through a thorough 70 point checklist taking in mechanical, electrical, interior, tyres plus more.Pleased you had fun and i am sure many great memories.

We can’t fault a thing, a truly fantastic trip, escape we’re brilliant to deal with as we’re Rankers. Our van went like a dream and never had a problem, really comfortable and great value for money. The staff we dealt with at pickup and drop off were fantastic. Highly recommend. Thanks to both companies

Escape Rentals was 100% good to talk to and they had straight forward information. Nothing to complain on there. So far 10 of 10. But The car decreased the result and also here it was not escape fault because they had wrote about their van in the specifikations. However The van had a not enough power to work properly in Mountains. The automatic was not always working smoothly and the tachometer increased to 4000 rpm with a velocity of 70 kmph in slopes. One more minus was that the car had no cruise control. Overall it was a very good week and except for those problems above and some other things that decreased the standard a bit, we was satisfied. Satisfied with escape Rentals and the van took us wherever we wanted.

Escape Campervan Rentals responds:

Thanks for your review Andreas - we are a bit disappointed in the 6/10 rating if we're honest. We do state (as you mention in your review) clearly on our website the van specs including the engine size etc. We're not aware of any backpacker-esque vans out there with cruise control. They are not the fastest vehicles on the road (we make no apologies for that) but they are amongst the most reliable out there. We are glad that we ticked all the other boxes for you though and hope you enjoyed your trip in NZ.

The team at Escape is professional and handled my rental exceptionally. The pick up procedure was detailed and the team took the time to answer all questions. The safety-first and preserve the environment philosophy was clear during the briefing and the van itself was great. During the trip on the South Island, I encountered some minor issues and voiced my concerns. The Escape team went far beyond expectations in clearing these up. I would highly recommend Escape as their vans have comfortable beds, and are properly outfitted for the elements. Further, their team was excellent during the pick up and drop off process.

Size of the campervans perfect for NZ roads, size of the bed is large and perfect. Sad you can't choose your design and vehicles a bit old but price and oprions are very competitive and service provided by the Team to help and answer queries is really efficient.

We cannot speak highly enough of the staff at the Auckland branch of Escape rentals - they were so friendly and helpful and showed real care for our trip.
