Kenrick who runs NZ Frontiers was helpful from the first email enquiry we made to us leaving after our holiday when he took us to the airport. The pricing was completely up front with no hidden extras on arrival, fair price, camper van was in very good condition and easy to manoeuvre being smaller. Inside space well designed and fine for two adults. We were very pleased indeed that we went with him and would do so again. We had a great holiday.

My wife, as usual, spent a long time in checking out the various companies that offer campervans in New Zealand. Thank you to Kendrick for providing such a personal service to all his customers and therefore receiving nothing but positive feedback. From the first email enquiring about the vans, to the moment he dropped us back at the hotel in Auckland before we flew home, the service we enjoyed from New Zealand Frontiers (Kenrick) was second to none.
The van was excellent in almost every way. Numerous sized spaces for cups and water bottles! Bottle opener! GPS commentary! Driving was a pleasure, parking was straight forward and sleeping was very comfortable.
If you want a reasonable sized vehicle and peace of mind you MUST choose New Zealand Frontiers.

For many years we had wanted to visit New Zealand and at last had the opportunity. So we decided the best way, for freedom and flexibility, was to do it in a campervan. After comparing numerous companies, we chose New Zealand Frontiers and we're so glad we did.

Kenrick Mitchell is a man who cares. From the very first contact, he made us feel so welcome, and throughout the booking process and during our trip he was always accessible and helpful. The van was easy to drive (we covered 7000km and it never felt tiring) and so comfortable, especially the bed. It was perfect for two people and included everything we needed. So many positives and It was certainly a major part of our successful and memorable trip.

We had an amazing six weeks. We've seen some truly stunning sights and had some awesome experiences. New Zealand is an amazing place. A place full of wonders and they're all so accessible. Its spectacular scenery and active geology, its unique plants and wildlife (especially the birds), its pride in its cultural heritage, all make it a really special place to visit. Having long wanted to, we're so glad we eventually made it and, thanks to Kenrick and New Zealand Frontiers, we found the ideal way to achieve our goal.

It was the best holiday EVER!! Not only because it’s the most wonderful country to travel in for its beauty and wouldn’t have been as carefree had it not been for the amazing customer service provided by Kenrick. From the very first correspondence to dropping off our home on wheels, we felt genuinely cared for. He took the time to explain all the workings and cubby holes in the van, and as campervan virgins, this could not have been more appreciated! As business owners ourselves, Kenrick’s excellent sense of humour and hands-on welcome was beyond refreshing! I would and have recommended this awesome company to anyone looking to rent a well-cared for and equipped camper van. Easy to drive and manoeuvre on the roads of New Zealand:-) Have run out of adjectives to describe the best holiday EVER!! Cheers!!

We rented a campervan from New Zealand Frontiers from mid October to mid November. A total of four weeks. The campervan was very comfortable and well appointed with lots of storage. It handled the curvy New Zealand roads with ease, and we found it easy to park everywhere we went. Kenrick Mitchell, the owner of New Zealand Frontiers, was just great to deal with. He took plenty of time to explain the workings of the campervan, and he was always available to answer any questions that came up along the way. He gave us good tips on where to go and what to see, and he included a great road atlas that really helped us find some beautiful backroads to travel. He even picked us up in Auckland at the start and gave us a lift to the airport when our road trip was finished. His level of service is exceptional. He treats his customers like they were family. The next time we’re in New Zealand we will rent from Kenrick at New Zealand Frontiers. That’s for sure.

My wife and I hired the two berth deluxe campervan from Kenrick for 2 weeks in July 2018. We could have stayed for 2 months (or even more) we had such a good time! The van met our needs perfectly - it was clear to see that a lot of thought had been put into making the van as functional and user friendly as possible. There was a little air conditioner in the van (for powered sites) that heated up the van brilliantly. Even though we went in the middle of winter we were never cold once! There is also a gas heater if you're free camping. The bed was also super comfy - we slept like logs most nights. I found the van very easy to drive and, surprisingly, it had a bit of power to negotiate mountainous country and winding roads as well. The van we hired was manual transmission but Kenrick was looking at expanding his fleet with some automatic transmission vehicles. The GPS that's provided with the vehicle has informative (and sometimes hilarious) commentary regarding the history of New Zealand and Maori folklore.
The best part about NZ Frontiers is dealing with Kenrick. He is professionalism embodied. He goes the extra mile to provide quality and a personal touch which in my experience is rare nowadays. And the price you are quoted is the price you pay! There are no nasty surprises upon returning the van! Fortunately, we did not do any damage to the van but Kenrick applies a common sense approach if the van is damaged. He is not going to charge you for minute and frivolous things, only when it is warranted.
All in all we had a wonderful experience and would 100% recommend to NZ frontiers to anyone.

We were so lucky to have rented our Camper Van from New Zealand Frontiers.
The personal service provided by Kennrick was faultless and well worth the cost involved. We felt really secure in the knowledge that any problems or queries
would be answered positively and they were. He was very thorough in introducing us to the features of the van, the services available for campers in NZ both on
the North and South islands, providing maps, locations, and a super 'Sat Nav'
which gave the history and legends of New Zealand. He answered the phone immediately and dealt with our queries promptly and efficiently, we couldn't have wished for more. Not alone that, he brought the van to us in Auckland and also arranged for it to be picked up from us at the departure gate in Christchurch airport as we left after a superb 5 weeks in New Zealand. Highly recommended.
Thank you Kennrick, Helen and Jane (Ireland)

We just arrived home from our second trip with New Zealand Frontiers. we met him at the airport after 15 years, he is as professional, efficient, well organised and very friendly.
From the very first communication we had, we felt as if we finally found a man that we could trust and we have not been disappointed. There are no hidden fees or added diesel fuel taxes or anything like some of the other companies do. We absolutely loved the Van, perfect to all our needs. Kenrick gives a fantastic service and is always at the end of the phone for almost everything.
NZ Frontiers is highly recommended. If we ever get the chance to visit NZ again, we will rent with Kenrick again without even contemplating other companies.
