Nomad Campervan rentals are based in the rural setting of Clevedon. Family owned and operated, it is all hands on deck during the peak of the rental season.
We travel regularly as a family around New Zealand and get just as excited as visitors exploring our beautiful country. We haven’t seen it all by any stretch of the imagination but that is part of the mystic, something you haven’t discovered is just around the next corner.
Our fleet is based around the 2 +1 berth VW T5 Hightop turbo diesel. The fleet was expanded in 2016 to include VW T5 sleepervans and a handful of classic VW T25’s. Our 2017 addition is a Fiat Discovery 5 berth Motorhome. Bumble is the first of a new range for us, catering for families needing a little more living space than a campervan can provide These really are so comfortable and luxurious, spoil yourself and travel New Zealand in style.
All our camper vans are well maintained, economical, clean and tidy, kitted out with all you need to tour New Zealand. Travelling with four or more people. Enquire about Group Bookings and larger vehicles available in our fleet or our fleet partners

My husband and I rented the Volkswagen Transporter for our month long wedding trip across the north and south island. We were extremely happy with our rental. The van was in excellent condition and well stocked. We also appreciated the van not having big logos or branding images on it. Communication with Mitchell was easy with quick respones and his attention to detail made you feel well cared for. He and his family were amazing. They provided a superior and genuine level of customer service that's rarely found today. We highly recommend Nomad Campervans!

We just got back from a great holiday. Before we arrived the owner Mitchell helped us out with any question we had. The communication was exceptional. When we arrived Mitchell and Kerry took great care of us, before sending us on our way in the VW van “Roxy”. The van was clean, functional and exactly as specified on the site. At the end of our trip we were quite fond of our campervan! We cannot thank Mitchell and Kerry enough for their very personal service! It made our time in NZ great!!
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
We had a wonderful experience with Nomads and were very glad we chose them for our camper trip on the north island.
It was a pleasure to deal with the owners at Nomads. They were communicative and reliable throughout the entire rental process, before and after. The service was a bit more personal than you would usually expect from a larger company, which was nice. Thank you so much for making everything so easy!
The T5 VW Camper for two passengers was clean and fully functional. The back is very comfortable and spacious for sleeping and cooking. All in all it served its purpose very well.
We would absolutely recommend this company and would hire with them again.
We can't recommend the personal service we received from Mitchell and Kerry highly enough. From the email contact when booking our campervan, to the airport pick up and drop off, to the welcome pack of goodies to take on the road with us; they were friendly, relaxed and very obliging. Our campervan was just what we needed for two adults and everything worked just as it should. Thanks guys for helping us have an excellent adventure in NZ!
We (a retired Canadian couple) recently returned from 7 weeks in wonderful New Zealand. Based on it being our first time there and wanting to experience as much of the country as possible we followed up on a suggestion from a native Kiwi. We rented a campervan. In our efforts to be thrifty we made contact with the Mighway company and ultimately connected with the owner(s) of Nomad, Mitchell and Kerry and family.
In preparing for our trip the folks at Nomad offered helpful advice. Once there Mitchell and Kerry could not have been more accommodating.
Part way into the trip we ran into a mechanical problem with the first van and they promptly exchanged vehicles and away we continued touring.
We returned home with many fond memories of this beautiful country, the people and are new found friends at Nomad Campervan Rentals.
Very nice and helpful company.
The description of the van was realistic and the whole rental process went seamlessly.
Help on the go was efficient and friendly and the one problem we had was resolved immediately.
The car we had was very capable and perfect for New Zealand road conditions and way better than the traditional camper vans that are available. Also, the fact that there are no ads on the car was very pleasing.
We would rent a car from Nomad Campervan again and recommend it to others! Read the description of the cars carefully, then you know what you get.
Thanks for a breathtaking trip over the roads of the south island!

Nomad Campervans are a small family run operation and Mitchell was a pleasure to deal with, going above and beyond providing a very personal service.
We rented 'Garfield' a VW T5 hightop for 3 weeks and had a fantastic experience. We would definitely come back and highly recommend Nomad to anyone looking for a good selection of vehicles to tour New Zealand.
We had an amazing 2 months with "Bailey" a VW T5 hightop. Mitchell and Kerry are very nice and super professional. I would definitely recommend Nomad campervans.
Flying into Auckland without reservation we inquired for a 2 months rental from Mid Nov - Mid Jan. Mitchell got back to us the same day offering his last T5. We realized only later how lucky we were to get a van at all as the two months included Xmas/NY which is super busy and even Juicy was sold out. The next day, Mitchell picked us up from our hostel and drove us to his home where we also met Kerry and his children before we did a thorough handover. After all questions had been answered we hit the road. We spent 2 months on the North and South island and drove more than 7000km without one single problem with the van. The van is in perfect condition (it has approx 300k on the meter) and runs super smooth. The drop off in Christchurch was fast and convenient too. The Airpark is located just next to the airport and provides free shuttle to the airport.
Nomad Campervan is a smaller family owned business (if i remember correctly Mitchell said they have 10-15 vans which he bought from the previous owner about 2 years ago, i.e. the older reviews here are actually related to the previous owner). The whole experience was super satisfying and personal (we even got a little welcome pack from Kerry). I would rent from Nomad again.
Thanks again to Mitchell and Kerry
We can highly recommend hiring your camper with Nomad. I did a lots of research before our trip and loved that this is a small family run company. Right from the first contact Mitchell was extremely helpful. We hired ‘Noo’ from Christchurch and it was our happy home for a month travelling around the South Island. A lovely welcome pack greeted us including a Christmas card and chocolates! The van performed brilliantly the whole time, despite having already done a fair few miles. We completed nearly 5000km with no issues. We really liked that it was not branded with logos like a lot of the other company’s. Great service from Mitchell and airpark Canterbury where we collected and returned the van. We miss it already!
I can highly recomend Nomand Campervans. Verry nice owners, that are very helpful. As its a small family bussiness, they care very good for you and take as much time as you need. The van was unbranded, so you are not visible as foreign tourist. The car was perfect for two persons. Not new but not expensive. I would definitly book there again.
We were exceptionally happy with Nomad Campervans. Mitchell leads the company with great commitment. He was the perfect manager from the first contact until the return of the van. So he has a.o. mount a bike rack on the van at our request (great, flowing bike tracks!). The service was very personal and Mitchell always available. Customer satisfaction is of greatest importance to him. Definitely the best car / campervan rental company we've ever come across. Or do you know a rental company which provides a local SIM card with the welcome package??!!
We spent 4 weeks on the North Island and experienced wonderful things. To visit both islands with this amount of time would have meant spending way too many kilometers in the car for us. Distances should not be underestimated, because the roads are windy and rather narrow. We therefore recommend not to pack too many sights and places into your itenerary. Slow travel is way more relaxing and the Northern Island offers plenty of nice places and outdoor acitivites!
100 percent recommendation!!! Thank you very much, Mitchell.
We've ranted a van name 'brodi' which was exactly what we needed for 2 adults and a baby, the van was clean with everything you can think of! The nomad campervan rantals should change the name to nomad campervan family, they gave us such a warming welcome to NZ, and they gave us all we needed to the trip (even play cards and choclets) the service was more then we expected- they made our jorny perfect, seriously!! Defiantly recommend !!
Travelling for 50 days in a country on the other side of the world from home without house with a 1 year and a half baby wasn't a little thing for us, especially in the middle of a 10 months round-the-world tour. We had decided to take a lot of time to select our rental company to minimise the risks (and expenses). Awared by previous rental experiences, we really didn't want an impersonal firm that would rip us off for things we haven't done and for who we would just have been a number.
We couln't hope for better than Nomad Campervan!
Mitchell, Kerry and their children had almost be a family for us in New Zealand. They invited us in their beautiful house, at their own table, even with Mitchell's delicious homemade beers and wonderful barbecue cheeseburgers! I can't believe having such a relationship with my car renter. They take care from us from the airport till the airport. They offer us time at their home to get our stuff organized and invited us to spend our first night in the campervan at their garden. Our daughter had even placed their first Christmas balls on their Christmas tree!
The Volkswagen 2+1 Berth Hightop was perfect for travelling with our baby. We thought that we would hate the campervan after 7 weeks but we still love it! It was really easy to drive, very convenient and highly confortable. We had absolutely everything we need inside and were able to cook real meals, what we didn't expect.
Something that we appreciate a lot is that their is absolutely no advertising on the campervan, so you are moving like a local. That reduces a lot the stealing risk (and is much more beautiful! > you'll see when you will cross a "Juicy" or "Britz" ;-) ).
As our arrival flight was landing in the evening, Mitchell arranged for us our first (and last night) in a wonderful Airbnb close to his house in Auckland which was soooo confortable (I still dream about these bedsheets!).
It has been an experience far across our expectations. Thanks again!
