Kia ora campers (previously G&J campers) were fantastic!!
Vicky & Steve we’re also prompt to answer any queries I had over email and happy to help with extra tips for enjoying our time in NZ. I decided to book the campervan through them because of the good reviews & also as they were a slightly smaller company they were offering more in the price with no additional cost e.g. camping chairs, solar panel, bbq etc which swayed the vote for me.
I’m glad we decided to go with them as we had an excellent experience! We loved our campervan and didn’t want to give it back! My only feedback would be the van we had was getting old so we had a fridge door that was a little tedious to open, nothing a little TLC can’t fix but if you want a new van I’m unsure if they provide these. Overall a great experience & would recommend to anyone!
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Everythink worked, comunication without any troubles, helpful staff, campervan OK, we would definitly recomend.
We recently returned to the UK from our road trip to NZ and have nothing but the highest regard for the company. We did a lot of research before we chose Kia Ora, and not only were they the most competitively-priced but all our initial queries were answered promptly and clearly, thus making the decision to go with them an easy one. On arriving in Christchurch we were picked up from the airport and taken to the depot nearby, where we were shown around the vehicle by Anshul, who was delightfully helpful and patient. The van itself was new (only 25k km), comfortable and economical to run. A couple of examples that illustrate the high level of professionalism the company practises:
1. We had a problem (or thought we had) when we turned up at a holiday park in Dunedin after a couple of days - all the electrics weren't working even though we were hooked up to a mains supply. I checked all the the switches, still nothing, so phoned Steve who, after telling us to check everything, couldn't figure out why there was a problem. So he paid for us to stay in a cabin overnight and arranged for us to take the van round to a local mechanic/engineer in the morning. Just before we left the following day, Steve phoned back and told us to check "the big red knob" again by the rear passengers' seats, which we did and much to our embarrassment, we realised that the switch had been moved to the "Off" position - probably by one of the kids' feet. D'oh! I offered to reimburse Steve, but he refused firmly and was genuinely more relieved that our holiday hadn't been compromised than in being reimbursed.
2. There was some confusion as to where we were to drop off the van in Auckland. We went to the wrong place, so had to drive a few kms to the correct location. As a way of acknowledging this, Steve paid for a cab to take us to our hotel in central Auckland, about 40 minutes away.
Exceptional customer service, have absolutely no hesitation in recommending them.
I would highly rate and recommend using Kia Ora Campers for your holiday in NZ! Vicky and Steve took real care ensuring that we had a good trip and were always available when we had any questions. The motorhome was fantastic, worked well and was given to us in a really clean state. The friendly chap who dropped it off with us spent over half and hour taking us through all the workings of the motorhome as we had never used one before! Would definitely use again! Thanks from Chris and Louise!
Good vans with some irrelevants damages (that may be fixes) but awesome ownership attention! Friendly and far away from big companies service :)
A great, family run small company, who provided a good service. We hired a 2 berth Kea Freedom, and were pleased with the whole experience.
The 'van was well equipped - most of the equipment looked quite new, and was all very clean.
the satnav was a surprise to me ( didn't realise it was provided), but was fantastic, especially when used in conjunction with the rankers app - campingnz.
The handover process was smooth, and we were soon on our way.
There were a few minor niggles initially, but after contacting them, Steve phoned back promptly to help/advise.
Nothing major though, and it did not detract from the enjoyment.
All in all, a very good experience, and I would definitely recommend them.
Everything associated with our hire of a Transit Kea van from Kia Ora Campers was excellent. Ross, who handed the van over to us at Christchurch Airport, could not have been more patient or more comprehensive in explaining the operation of the van. Although it wasn't the smartest van on the road it worked perfectly for us throughout and the price was very reasonable. The arrangements for handing the van back at Christchurch airport couldn't not have been more straightforward. Thanks Vicky and Steve for a great time.
Very impressed. They had thought of everything you would need. Easy to deal with and available whenever we had a query. Would definitely choose them next time.
I would recommend Kia Ora Campers definitely to everyone. The communication before and during our trip was so easy and helpful. We felt all the time fairly treated. The Camper Van was exactly like it was told us before. We had NO bad surprises or troubles all the time. The equipment of the Van was perfect, nothing was missing. And the Van itself worked totally fine.
The Pick Up and Drop Off went fast and uncomplicated.
There is really not one negative point about our experience. This is exemplary company.
Thank you so much!

The contact before hiring was very friendly, also the pickup. Everything was explained very well. Our Ford Kea Tourist 2 berth is driving superb to everywhere we want to go. The bed slept very well even with the length of 1.96m.

Kia Ora arranged for us to pick up and drop off our camper in unusual locations to suit our trip. They were friendly and helpful throughout - the kind of service you get from a smaller and more personal company. Had a couple of small problems with the camper, but we paid less for an old model and problems were quickly fixed.
Rankers provides the best information for renting a motorhome. We visited New Zealand in September 2017, and it was awesome. Steve N Vicky from G&J Campers are fast n reliable, responding to our queries and there was no hassle at all. The Navigator made it all possible and it was fun and enjoyable moment for me N my family. This is our first time and will never be the last.
On behalf of my wife n my son, we like to say Thank you!
The camper van was as advertised and is an excellent way to tour the south island. We had some problems with the van and didn't get the level of support that we expected.
Kia Ora Campers (G&J) responds:
I'm very disappointed with this review. thay had problems with the sat nav saying he couldn't work it and was not shown .(we put them in free of charge and have latest maps ) .
They had other day to day motoring problems that were not that huge .
They were reimbursed quite substantially for any inconvenience and we do the best to help with any problems.
