Travelling New Zealand is a great experience. In particular using a sturdy and compact campervan like the one which we rented from New Zealand Frontiers. Kenrick, the owner of this small family business, offers a great and reliable service to his customers. Also, there are no hidden costs in his contract and a lot of things included like the Ferry to South Island. If you don´t like the impersonal treat of big rental chains then New Zealand Frontiers is the right camper van rental for you. Starting from getting first information and finalizing the rental contract long months before our holiday to returning the van and closing the last contract obligations after our return from our holiday, Kenrick treats everything very professional, fast and accurate; not forgetting the family treat. He cares about everything himself. We did not have any significant trouble during our 4,200 km. The campervan was brought to our hotel in Auckland and we could choose what time we would like to return it; actually, we picked up Peter from Christchurch airport in the evening. Peter, also a very friendly guy, took over the campervan to be returned to Auckland. Having said this, you don´t have to bring back the campervan to a return station. With New Zealand Frontiers everything is handled upon individual arrangements. We loved our little campervan of 5.5 meters length. The clock showed 300 tkm, by the van was running perfectly; as mentioned: Very sturdy. We are planning to come back to New Zealand. Of course, New Zealand Frontiers will be our first choice! Thank you very much to Kenrick and family!

We booked NZ Frontiers because of the glowing reviews. Kenrick was indeed personable, very informative and always available fully living up to his reputation.
I always think that the measure of a company is not only what they do well, but how they cope when things go wrong.
We booked a motorhome for 60 days. We had a few very minor issues at first which Kenrick sorted promptly, even getting mechanics to call at our campsite so as not to interfere with our trip.
Late in the holiday we had the nightmare scenario, for both him and us, of the motorhome breaking down in a remote area. We could not fault the service we received. Kenrick promptly arranged for recovery, onward accommodation and even a courtesy car while the repairs were quickly carried out. He even offered to drive down with a replacement motorhome. Kenrick kept us fully informed at all stages as to what was happening and got us back on the road very quickly. We, and the mechanic, put it down to “one of those things” and the mechanic advised us it was certainly not due to lack of maintenance which he said was exemplary.
In conclusion we would recommend this company wholeheartedly, for peace of mind and great service. Kenrick will indeed look after you. We would, without hesitation, use NZ Frontiers again - which says it all.

New Zealand Frontiers was absolutely terrific to deal with. Starting with an excellent and informative web site. Kenrick responded
fast with a quote, his attention to details were amazing. We rented one of his 2 berth camper vans for our 3 week vacation. The unit was exactly what we needed, perfect size, spotless and well maintained. It worked perfectly for the entire trip. Plenty of power and good fuel economy. If you are looking for a campervan rental, do yourself a favour and use New Zealand Frontiers, you won’t be sorry.

Planning our driving trip around the North Island and not being an experienced overseas traveller it was a real Leap of Faith for me to ignore the bigger companies and choose New Zealand Frontiers for our motorhome hire. What a great decision! From the first point of contact via email to when we shook Kenrick's hand goodbye at the airport as he dropped us off at the end of our amazing trip it was just a totally hassle free experience.
I was going to write a long winded review about how great the van was and how great Kenrick was to deal with but just re-read a few other recent reviews and it's all already there. Once again thanks Kenrick for helping make our trip so memorable.

While planning my trip to New Zealand over a year ago, I began reading various reviews for camper van companies on the web. I quickly discovered numerous favorable reviews from New Zealand Frontiers and decided this was going to be the company I'll choose for my adventure! I was met at the airport by Kenrick of New Zealand Frontiers and immediately impressed. Such a nice person. Kenrick thoroughly went over the camper van with me and answered ALL of my questions. Kenrick was VERY nice and we spoke over a fresh cup of coffee he had made me. After my 3 week adventure on both islands, I returned the camper van and Kenrick gave me a ride back to the airport. During my trip, Kenrick emailed me with helpful information about road openings/closures and wished me well on my trip! I cannot say in words how much I appreciate Kenrick and his assistance before, during, and after my vacation in New Zealand. New Zealand Frontiers was the most positive experience I have ever had with travel arrangements in foreign lands and I would (and probably will) use them again in the future. I have met a new friend in New Zealand! HIGHLY recommended!!!

I used a New Zealand Frontiers van for the third time this Jan/Feb and found it clean comfortable and it ran very smoothly all around the route. The kind friendly advice available at anytime was also a valuable asset during another epic voyage around this beautiful country. Juliet

Having been utterly confused and despondent in my search for a reputable camper van hire company, I was immensely relieved to come across NZ Frontiers. Here was a small company I could deal directly with, who had nothing but great reviews. Kenrick, the owner is very personable, with a great sense of humour and on hand via email to help and offer advice in any way he can. We had an immaculate van for around 5 weeks, being great to drive and totally reliable. Preparing and cooking food was easy and we slept really well. We went for a smaller van to have a good driving experience, and so glad we did.
Choose NZ Frontiers - you won't be disappointed.

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.
