Fantastic camper vans! Modern, clean and well equipped with all details included. Iconic were superb to deal with at every stage of our journey and Richie - the world’s nicest guy - was on call the entire time in case we needed anything. This company is geared towards making your experience the absolute best and we would go out of our way to use them again.

We were extremely pleased with Iconic Motorhomes! We live in Denmark and I was on the hunt for a truly comfortable luxury motorhome for our first time as a family of 4 in a small space.

I was so happy to finally find Iconic! We rented a Bolero 4 as we have a 3 and 10-year-old. Iconic provides you with all that is needed even including toiletries, vacuum, full kitchen supplies, towels, sheets, and the inside of the motor home is well thought out. When picking up the motorhome the whole team was fantastic in giving an inside and outside tour of everything.

The vehicle drives very well and is an automatic vehicle which helped on the windy New Zealand roads.

We had an issue with something not working and the whole team did their best in trying to get it fixed, which was appreciated.

Iconic is way above average in staff, and of course, the luxury motorhomes they offer, I highly recommend!

Great camperans, not so reputable service!
The Bolero campervan was awesome, have to admit it we loved it. The overall ICONIC experience however left us with a very bitter aftertaste which actually ruined the whole experience.
A number of things contributed to this, firstly we had to change our flight because it didn´t fit in with their closing times and they weren’t prepared to wait for us if we didn´t arrive before 15:00. Don’t expect any airport transfer, they don’t provide it, you have to make your own way to their office from the airport which took us roughly 30 minutes and nearly $65 taxi fare.
The guy who showed us over the camper van when we finally arrived (Richy) was a bit pretentious and sexist and completely ignored my wife, who infact paid for and booked everything as well as doing most of the driving while we were there, needless to say he completely blanked her. He managed to upset her and make her feel completely unequal.
Our journey lasted 8 days and everything went perfect, no problems, no issues, and had a great time. The surprise came when we returned the camper van and were informed we had to pay $345 for a small 3-4cm scratch that was hardly noticable and we were completely unaware of, as it was more of a mark than a scratch. Richy checked the campervan on return and seemed overexcited to report back to his boss that he had discovered some damage and was already reaching for their damage price list. We were both very suprised to discover this and asked him to point it out, I suggested that the mark/scratch could easily be polished out but he was adament that they would have to take the piece off and respray it. We couldn’t argue with them so ended up having to pay for it, although we were pretty sure they wouldn´t fix it.
This left us feeling ripped off and over charged on top of everything we already paid. I get the feeling that this is the way that they operate with all customers, so be aware!!!

Hi Aranzazu Jiménez Gómez and Craig Rodgett,
It is so unusual to hear such harsh criticism and your review stands out as such, many reviewers have stated on this site just how accommodating and friendly Richy is, others have pointed out how genuine a company we are when it comes to damages.
Never mind we shall have take it on the chin, as you are indeed allowed to publicly air your point of view. There are certainly enough clues in this content for people to form their own opinions of the author.
As a team Iconic are always looking to improve our service to our very valued clients, and of course this review affects the whole team.
We have had a very successful summer season warmly welcoming our previous clients back for 2nd, 3rd, 4th and even their 5th Iconic Adventure this year.

It is sad to hear that although your adventure was brilliant your own out of pocket expenses would lead to this less than honest picture of our company, and single out one very dedicated team member in particular is poor form.

To Readers of this review, if you decide you would like to put a face to them, please visit our own website review page and you can also see how happy they actually looked on pick up.

Our second time to NZ (in 2014 we travelled North Island and we’re determined to return again) - Iconic was our first choice as we had been so impressed in 2014 by the team. We really appreciate their exceptional service, quality of the motorhome and friendliness. We travelled the South part of the South Island and built our itinerary using our own ideas plus the helpful suggestions made by Iconic. We would highly recommend Nature’s Wonders on the Otago peninsula - fabulous way to see seals and penguins in their natural habitat.

Booked the Bolero for a 2 week trip around the South Island as a family of four. Fantastic experience and could not have been happier with Iconic. The quality of the van was excellent, very easy to drive and equipped with everything you need. Stayed in some lovely spots via the Campable app, highly recommended!

No hidden fees, no tricks, no scams. Just exactly what was promised: a fine quality newer RV with great amenities and all the extras we requested. The customer service was above and beyond our expectations. I would most definitely use them again in the future. I would not even consider using another RV rental company. These guys are awesome!

Iconic was excellent. We had an amazing two weeks in our motohome, the Rio. The Rio was ready to go when we arrived and was easy to drive. We loved being able to freedom camp and have a shower and kitchen to use at any time. Richy was available for any questions while on the road which was nice to have. He provided a personal touch and provided clear instructions/orientation for those of us who have never driven a motorhome. I would definitely recommend and rent from them again if I return to NZ.

The quality and luxurious motorhome we rented from Iconic Motorhomes was more than we could have ever dreamed of. But better than the motorhome was the customer service. Every message we sent the staff was answered almost immediately. It made our trip effortless. I had never driven an motorhome before and so I was a bit nervous but with Iconic's help I felt very confident. Nothing but thank yous from me!

We want to thank Richy and the team at Iconic for making our motorhome adventure round South Island truly the trip of a lifetime. From the moment we first contacted Iconic to the (sad) moment we returned our motorhome the service from Iconic was exceptional and extremely personal. The motorhome was luxurious and had everything we needed and all the personal touches from the Iconic team made it very special. Richy was on hand to help with any queries no matter how trivial and we were looked after throughout. We would heartily recommend Iconic. The Bolero was a fabulous treat for the two of us and we would heartily recommend Iconic to anyone visiting New Zealand. We will be back....maybe the Kontiki next time?

We rented a Bolero Black from Iconic for 2 weeks traveling around the South Island. The experience renting from Iconic was fantastic. We received a full pre-trip overview from Richy, and the motorhome was immaculate. It was the perfect vehicle - super comfortable, very well appointed, and easy to drive. We definitely had the nicest motor home on the road! I would highly recommend Iconic Motorhomes.

We were looking for a trouble free vacation, after reading reviews decided on ICONIC. They were outstanding in EVERY way!
The Sundance was perfect the two of us. Everything worked perfectly. Richy the manager, was friendly, helpful (going above and beyond 24/7) and fun. The Sundance was appointed with top notch accoutrements. We HIGHLY recommend ICONIC!
