We have just completed our 10 days Motorhome experience in North Island with 2 children and we were so thankful we engaged Kiwi Motorhomes. They were nothing short of perfect, from the moment we enquired to the return of the vehicle. Leon was really responsive and provided a lot of information prior to our arrival and even went out of the way to get another child bike seat for us. When we arrived in Auckland, he picked us from the airport and gave us a comprehensive walk through of the motorhome. We got ourselves a Wini and it was perfect for our family. The vehicle had no issues at all during the whole trip and we even got compliments from several onlookers along the journey. This gave us the peace of mind to enjoy our holiday instead of worrying about the vehicle. At the end of the trip, Leon even drove us all the way to our next accommodation even though we wanted to take a taxi.

We will highly recommend kiwi Motorhomes for anyone looking for a great motorhome experience because of their great customer service and excellent fleet of vehicles. It felt like we we were just renting from a good friend instead of having a business transaction. Save yourself some headaches and skip the big companies.

I traveled with my husband and twin 18 month old boys in Buzz. Roger from Kiwi Motorhomes picked us up at the airport and showed us how to use Buzz. Roger made sure we had two car seats and even bought a rail guard so the boys wouldn't fall out of the bottom bunk. Very thoughtful! We drove Buzz around the South Island with almost no problems (just one minor difficulty trying to get the propane unscrewed-it's a reverse thread). We were a little nervous about driving a manual in such a big van, but it was not bad at all. The manual was probably the best way to go, given all the passes we drove through. Overall I would say this company is better than the "popular" van companies by far-especially after talking to other people at various campgrounds. The people at Kiwi Motohomes are all wonderful and very quick to respond to emails and messages. We would absolutely rent from them again.

Our family (my wife, myself and 2 children) spent 6 weeks travelling with the motorhome 'Jonty'. Our experience was great from the start to finish. Leon was very helpful from the first contact on. The motorhome was in great condition and perfect for our family trip. Leon was readily available whenever questions came up during our trip and also the handover was very smooth and without problems. Would very much recommend Kiwi Motorhomes to anybody looking for a great NZ campervan experience!

We went on a family tour of New Zealand (2 parents and 3 "oversized" #dutch children). We visited the northern part of the North Island. We booked our campervan through Kiwi Motorhomes to be reassured of a fairly new van. The reception of Leon and Varnier was very warm. Not only a fully equiped campervan (nicknamed "Ted") but also a lot of good advice on where to go, how to travel, what apps on the phone to use and very accessible help by phone during our "flat tire experience". Being our first round to NZ very practical! We had a wonderful stay, and left with new-found friends!

We have just returned from a fantastic holiday in New Zealand. We spent four weeks travelling through North & South islands in a motorhome rented from Kiwi Motorhomes. From start to finish, the friendly & efficient service we received from the owners Leon & Varnier was superb. The motorhome was very clean, drove exceptionally well & was clearly well maintained. What was also great was the additional information which Leon kindly provided to help plan the trip - nothing seemed to be too much problem. I would highly recommend using Kiwi Motorhomes they were very competitive cost wise & the level of service was incredible.

The Rankers website was also brilliant, easy to use & allowed us to stay at some wonderful sites with the motorhome.

We travelled for 24 days in Bella/Nate. Kiwi Motorhomes is a family run business and it shows from the personal touches offered throughout our booking. From our initial enquiry Leon and Varnier, they were extremely helpful and responsive to our questions (and we had many). We chose this camper to travel in as a couple from London. We wanted a motorhome that was spacious given the duration of our trip. We were met at the airport (Auckland) by Leon and Varnier who were both very friendly and helpful in showing us round the camper and navigating the features. Bella was very clean and well looked after. We thoroughly enjoyed our trip and even when we had a little hiccup with a tyre, Leon was on hand to resolve the issue very quickly. We liked having the space in the van, we kept the lounge area made up as a bed for the whole time as there was enough space for us to use the area at the front for eating and chilling. Upon returning the van to Christchurch at the end of our trip, we were met by Roger who was also very friendly and helpful which made the transaction very smooth, just what you want when you are at the end of a trip. I would recommend Kiwi Motorhomes as you feel looked after and in very safe hands. Thanks for making our trip so special.

We (parents and two kids aged 3 and 16) enjoyed travelling with the camper called Tricia for three weeks throughout the south island. Kiwimotorhomes was by far one of the most most reasonably priced company for camper rentals - I spent a lot of time researching. Tricia is an older model, and so isn't one of the flashiest campers on the road, but she suited our purposes just fine. They communicated promptly and thoroughly to all of my questions (and there were many!) and were extremely friendly and supportive during pickup, while driving, and for dropoff. If we come back to NZ (and I surely hope we will some day!) I would rent from them again.

Kiwi Motorhomes is a family owned company. The owner couple, Leon and Varnier Heikell, were very professional and helpful during our 3 week holiday in New Zealand. The motorhome was just two years old with low milage and in very good conditions. The inside was very clean and looked after which is not unusual as all motorhomes have a given name and are part of the family, Kiwi Motorhomes. I can deeply recommend Kiwi Motorhomes if you want to enjoy a stressless holiday in New Zealand. Thanks a lot to Leon and Varnier. We will come back!

Leon and Varnier and our whole experience of Kiwi Motorhomes was excellent. From the very first emails they gave us advice on our trip and the Motorhome was ideal. They provided bikes, baby seat, car seat, GPS etc and ensured we had everything we needed for an absolutely amazing trip around NZ. There were no hidden costs and they couldn’t have been easier to work with.

From the Christchurch collection to the Picton drop off we have nothing but praise for this wonderful company. Although our Motorhome wasn’t the newest in the fleet it had many extras which were very welcome and was very easy to drive. The manual
transmission was great for navigating the twists and turns in the mountains and the fuel consumption was v economical.
The service throughout the hire was first class and being able to do
a clothes wash at Jamie and Kath’s house was much appreciated; I
doubt their competitors would offer that !
We haven’t had time to do all of the Island/s but when we come back there’s only one company we’ll

We had a great trip in our motorhome Especially all the small touches, a bowl with fresh fruit, all kinds of tea, coffee etc.
The communication was very good and the fact that the camper was bought and fetched. Nicely on time.
We will certainly book with them again on our next trip

We traveled as a family with two children and could not choose a better company as a partner. All Kiwi Motorhome staff, from the first contact to the return of the motorhome, were extremely friendly and helpful. They were very agile in answering our questions and meeting our needs. In fact, they did meeting much more than our needs!

We traveled on Jonty, one of his motorhomes. - The kids loved calling the car by their name, and that says a lot about the company - We were amazed at all the facilities that were available to us. In addition to being very comfortable and new, the campervan was still available with all bed linnen, towels, amenities and two bikes, including a child's seat.

When we search for a company we choose Kiwi Motorhome because it has the best rating for its customers. And we do not regret it. Congratulations to the entire Kiwi Motorhome team and thank you for providing an unforgettable experience for us and our children. If we have another chance we will have no hesitation in hiring them.

Many thanks!

Hello ! We are a couple from Paris and we rented Jonty, Kiwi Motorhomes' large 5/6 beds campervan, during 3 weeks for our honeymoon trip. We drove 4300 km in it, it was fabulous and no problem whatsoever. We are so nostalgic of this campervan, it really felt like home. Varnier and Leon were absolutely wonderful, helpful in any situation via WhatsApp. Really a piece of mind.

I will come back with friends to NZ for sure, and call Kiwi Motorhomes for Jonty again :) It is like visiting an old friend !
