We took the oppurtunity to hire a SAM motorhome and to get away from Wellington after covid. First timers and we realised when we packed it we left a lot of stuff home. Provided with everything we needed and so much storage. We travelled to Taupo/Rotorua for five days. We waved excitedly to other campervans, although coming back home to Wellington they were a little snobby haha. We realised last few nights we didnt really need to plug in at holiday park and did it solo in a parking spot in Turangi (we caught Mt Ruapehu at sunrise). We had two teenage boys and a toddler and sleeping was spacious. Thank you Pacific Horizon we will definately save up and do this again.

We hired a Pacific Horizon Motorhome for a long weekend here in NZ. First time hiring a motorhome in NZ and the experience was great. The quality of the motorhome was first rate. The ability to go anywhere, was so easy and relaxing. We were able to change our destination because of weather outcomes, and that made our holiday that more enjoyable. We would definitely recommend Pacific Horizon Motorhomes as a great hire option.

Decided to take a "post-lockdown" break and booked a campervan with Pacific Horizon out of Plimmerton. From the first conversation with Maryann, to dropping the van back at the end of the trip, the experience was excellent. Friendly, prompt, accurate communication, a thorough introduction and "walk-through" of the immaculately presented and superbly equipped van before setting off; the van itself was as easy as a car to drive and was comfortable to stay in. The only problem now is to decide where to go with the next Pacific Horizon van :-) Thanks to Maryann, Debs and the team

Excellent provider of a motorhome for travelling around NZ
1) on pick up, motorhome was immaculately turned out (interior and exterior). Thank you to Michelle for this.
2) motorhome was in very good condition ( we had the early bird upgrade to a recent model - it was a 2018).
3) motorhome was exactly as described/expected. Tv was an Avtex model, with a sat.dish.
4) all fittings worked and the kitchen equipment etc. was of a good quality (the sharp kitchen knife was sharp, the peeler did peel, crockery was Corelle china).
5) phone support whilst on the road was prompt, friendly and efficient- thank you Maryann.
6) when our holiday was cut short by the Covid19 lockdown, the staff were very kind - far more so than other some companies used by fellow travellers.
7) We would absolutely use this company again - indeed plan to when we can get back to NZ.

We were allowed to spend wonderful holidays with our two kids in New Zealand. Not least thanks to the comfortable SAM motorhome which offered enough space for us (3 adults and 2 children). I don't like mass processing and prefer personal contacts and here I was not disappointed.
We had some small technical problems but we were helped quickly and easily. I would book again with Pacific Horizon without hesitation.

The overall experience with Pacific Motorhomes was awesome. However it doesn't quite fit a 9/10, so it's a 8/10.
First of all, we didn't get the campervan we booked. We got a larger one (which might not be bad). But larger means more expensive (concerning diesel and ferry transfer). The camper (which was then a lil oversized for just 2 persons) was just above average. During out journey, we faced several small problems (keep in mind: small!):
Front tyres which didn't have a very good profile
One ventilation valve broken which permanently spit out cold air at maximum air level.
Missing dust pan and brush (which was not intended I guess)
One drawer was broken and permanently opened while driving, really annoying ...
Electrical hot plate not working at all
And some other minor stuff

The service provided by PH is outstanding. We needed to contact Maryann due to a highway stone on the front window and aligned an appointment which fit to our plans, so no huge time loss.

All in all, I can definitely recommend PH. However, the minor issues we had with the van, left a little bit of sad experience in our journey. Despite of that, the service makes up on all of that.

Debs who collected us from our hotel was really helpful and clear in the introduction to our vehicle. The camper was clean and in excellent condition. We had one occasion to phone for advice and were promptly and helpfully dealt with. We had a great time touring around the South Island and covered over 1500 miles. Returning the vehicle to a different depot to our start was quick and efficiently dealt with. Overall an excellent service.

Pacific Horizon Motorhomes responds:

Hi Jonatan,

I’m disappointed to read your comments above and to hear that you were far from satisfied with your recent Pacific Horizon experience. The motorhome you picked up from us at the start of your 3-month holiday was the exact vehicle we were requested to supply from your Booking Agent – being a Pacific Horizon Standard GEM. After expressing your discomfort with this motorhome, we managed to juggle other client bookings already in place, in the middle of high season, to fit you into a smaller & newer Premium model 2+1 for the remaining 9 weeks of your holiday. This vehicle swap was agreed between all parties at the time as being the most preferred solution, and that you were happy for it to take place with no difference in rental paid and no compensation due.

The refrigerator repair was done in as timely a manner bearing in mind the remoteness of your location (within 48 hours of being notified), and was still able to be operated on power as back up. The 6-monthly Certificate of Fitness check was carried out as swiftly as we could. Unfortunately this was not carried out prior to you being transferred into this vehicle at short notice, as it was not foreseen that this motorhome would be needed as urgently as it was and for as long a period of time as it was. While these fixes were being carried out, alternative accommodation & meals were arranged and paid for you at our expense and the vehicle was returned to you in less than 24 hours.

I acknowledge your above sentiment, but do hope you still enjoyed your New Zealand holiday.

Colin Morris

We spent December and January in New Zealand. This included three weeks in a motorhome in North Island, picking up in Auckland and dropping off in Wellington - a facility not available from all other motorhome suppliers. Then, after some time with friends, we had three weeks in South Island doing a round trip from Christchurch. Our Travel Agent in UK recommended PH and it turned out to be a very good choice. The motorhomes were well-equipped, and handled steep and windy roads effortlessly. However, what really made the whole experience of PH special was the personal quality of the customer service: everyone from PH made us feel they were keen to do everything possible to make our trip a good experience. For instance we'd been booked into an Auckland hotel out of range of the usual PH pick-up; the driver nonetheless brought the motorhome to us. And at the end of our journey I realised, at the airport hotel in Christchurch, that I'd left my mobile phone in the motorhome. After a series of calls - via Maryann in Wellington - Michelle found the phone - though not where I told her I'd left it! In the circumstances I felt it was my responsibility to get a taxi to collect it, but she insisted on bringing it to the hotel. Small examples but absolutely typical of the overall level of attention and care we received. Any small problems were sorted out by phone, and in one not very significant case - TV not working - we were given free WiFi in compensation (incidentally I was amazed how well the inboard WiFi worked, but I'm easily impressed by technology.) We'd recommend PH to any travellers and would certainly use them again if we returned.
