We travelled for 30 days in an Escape in July 2019 with two toddlers in tow. Couldn’t have asked for a better experience! We did a tonne of research before booking and were pleased with Our choice. The staff at Iconic were incredibly helpful and easily reached when questions inevitably arose. They were thorough in the walk-through and pick-up/drop off was a breeze. Loved that there were no hidden costs and no pressure to buy the extra insurance (since we had our own from home). Also loved that there was no upfront deductible made on our credit card. The motorhome was in good shape and very practical for a small family. We were nervous about travelling in winter and staying warm but had no issues (even using gas heating and free-camping the majority of the time). New Zealand is an absolutely beautiful country to travel - can’t thank Luisa and Richy enough for making our dream trip such a success.

We had a fantastic holiday! The staff at both Depots went out of their way to help answer every question we had.
The vehicles were in tip top condition.. definitely a premium vehicle traveling around New Zealand compared to other companies.

I would recommend for sure.

After much research we chose Iconic for our 4 week holiday in NZ. An excellent choice as all was delivered as promised. Pick up was easy, van was in first class condition and we had no issues whatsoever. Iconic checked twice that all was ok. Return was also straight forward. At the Christchurch depot we reviewed a few of the vans / mobile homes for our next trip and found all were excellent.
Can highly recommend this company for your trip to NZ.

Iconic were fabulous! The communication/service before we arrived in New Zealand was really good, all queries answered. The service on collection and drop off of the van was excellent. The van provided was absolutely perfect for us, very clean, all facilities good and drove well. I would recommend Iconic Motorhomes to anyone thinking of renting a camper van in New Zealand, especially if you are travelling halfway across the world and want to be sure that you get a really good comfortable van.
Thanks to all the very helpful staff at Iconic.

We hired the Gr8 Escape for the last 2 weeks of August and had a Gr8 experience!! ;)

I had spent alot of time looking at all different campervans and the different layouts to best suit us for our trip. There were 2 adults and a 12 month old, so we wanted to make sure there was suitable space for our trip (Pram + snowboard gear included). I was happy when I found Iconic and the Gr8 Escape as it looked like it could suit us. With bunks at the back and a drop down bed over the seating area it seemed it would work well. We were able to put the baby in the bottom bunk at the back (the guys at Iconic were able to put a makeshift guard across the opening making sure he wouldn't roll out at night, which made us a whole lot more comfortable). And we were able to stow our bags on the top bunk. We also wanted to make sure that we could put the 1 year old to bed while still having a place to sit inside (especially being winter). There was a curtain that could be pulled across between the bunks and the kitchen area so that worked perfectly.

We had the camper for 9 nights and only plugged into electricity for 3 of those nights, we had the gas heating on and didn't end up needing to start the 2nd bottle. I think the well fitted thermal blinds made a huge difference keeping the camper warm (again, especially during winter). Kitchen was great with and oven, 3 burner stove and a big fridge + freezer. Comparing our camper to others we saw driving around it definitely wasn't the longest/biggest and was easy enough to drive around and park.

The company were easy to deal with with quick responses for any questions we had leading up to our visit. We will be using Iconic and the Gr8 Escape when we come back to see the North of the South Island and the North Island!!

Second time travelling around The South Island 11 years apart. I'm 55, my parter a little younger. Back end of Winter, last two weeks in August. Decided to go for total comfort this time. Iconics Rio Black 6m length Motorhome was brilliant for two. Freedom camping or plugged in, it gave us everything we needed. Iconic were fantastic. 'Iconic' translate to Richie who set us on our way relaxed and responded via WhatApp incredibly promptly when we needed a bit of help with minor issues. Highly recommend and would use again at the drop of a hat. Thanks Richie. (Iconic) Keef & Nadene. Hope to return again.

Iconic provided an absolutely incredible service. A great vehicle, friendly staff, a thorough explanation on how to use facilities and plenty of refreshments during our visit. What stands out most was their customer service. They made significant effort to provide the best possible service at all times. I would thoroughly recommend Iconic Motorhomes.

We recently returned from a 7 day trip in an Escape Camper Van hired from Iconic Motor Homes. Travelling with two teenage boys was ideal in the escape - they could have individual beds at the rear of the van. Luisa was our point of contact at Iconic and did a really fantastic job organising the hire. She answered all our emails, helped with a few hitches paying across the Tasman and spoke from personal experience on touring around NZ and Australia. At pickup, she explained how the van operated and was great to deal with – very clear and kept it simple - we were in holiday mode so couldn't think too much!

We felt really confident dealing with her and Iconic - and didn't feel like all the burden of labour had been shifted onto the customer - as is usual with bigger companies.
We can highly recommend Iconic and especially Luisa.
