I was looking for a higher end comfortable campervan for our journey around the Sth Island and my searching led me to Iconic as one of the only luxury level of motorhomes to rent (for hire) in Sth Island. They did not disappoint!
From my initial connection I was convinced they were worth the slight premium you will pay (its worth it!) and the right company for us. They gave us tips well before our trip and the transaction to book the motorhome was seamless.
Richy met us very early and walked through the whole vehicle and then left us with his number and was available at some ungodly hours when we ran into couple of small snags with the vehicle! Once we figured out the lay of the land with the workings of the motorhome - we fully enjoyed everything it offers.
The Kontiki was perfect for us. We wanted a bit of space and we wanted a bedroom - with room to move on both sides. The whole vehicle is really well appointed and comfortable. It's new. The motorhomes are all very new and in excellent shape. The fridge is a great size - we cooked multiple nights as well. The cookware is all really good & the utensils etc are well thought out so you can really cook a lot if you wanted to. The tvs worked great too. The amount of light in the motorhome is astounding - the skylights really help in all areas. The bathroom was fantastic - albeit tiny as you'd expect. If you are a big person - you might struggle but we are smaller people and it worked great. Shower is awesome. Just remember to always turn on the hot water before you need it!! It heats up quick and i was able to have a good 10 min HOT shower whenever I wanted.
Richy was always a text away and let us spend the last night we had in Christchurch in their parking lot as our flight was early the next morning!! Could not have been any better.
Excellent motorhome; excellent service...and I'm telling you - we were THE most luxurious motorhome on the road! If you like a bit of luxury in a camper van, Iconic is for you!!

Don’t use anyone else but Iconic! What an amazing, friendly and customer service focused team. They are a family business and it shows!

We had originally booked the Bolero which would give everything you needed, but last minute my husband upgraded to the Kon Tiki. Not cheap, but value for money - it makes travelling no chore but instead a little bit of luxery on the road....you also get enviable looks when you pull up at night!

Can’t recommend the Iconic team highly enough - a huge thanks in particular to Kay and Richy who were always available for questions - even when we were on the road. If you can also get it - book the Kon Tiki!

We hired the 2 person motor home Rio. It was so easy to drive and handle. We loved how its designed for ease and comfort and every little detail is functional. The heating system is awesome, we loved having the luxury to sleep peacefully watching the stars while being warm even at the most remote places. We cant brag about our experience enough at NZ south Island! Have to give it to Iconic's excellent service to make it all more special. We highly recommend their motor-homes compared to others, once on the road we realised our decision to go with them was totally worth it! Little things matter and they had it all figured out for ya! PS: we loved the little tourism radio gadget, we used it through all our drives and probably ended up exploring way more than we would have on our own :)

We didn’t really need convincing after our first affair with an Iconic Bolero, but our latest experience has put it all beyond question.
Without a doubt, Ricky in Christchurch and the rest of the Iconic team offer a service that’s second to none. Nothing is too much trouble, even when dealing with pesky phone calls once you’re on the road.
Friendly, professional and considerate – worth every cent.

Regular travellers will be used to looking at reviews and travel company's brochures / web sites with a certain degree of caution. Sometimes even a healthy scepticism. "Quality" and "customer service" are words which flow all too freely from the ad agencies pen. However, my own experience is that for Iconic motorhomes these words are probably an under statement. We recently had the most fantastic holiday on South Island with the joys of a Bolero motorhome. From my first contact to the last I received nothing but interest, advice, knowledge and a desire to help. And as this was with different people, its obvious that a culture of exceptional customer service runs through the whole team.
The Bolero is the highest quality rental we have seen. Spacious, comfortable and thoughtfully well equipped. A permanent bed makes such a difference - not just for comfort and a good night's sleep, but also avoiding the chore of the nightly ritual of rearranging bench seating and fitting bedding. State of the art systems made it incredibly easy to operate. It was warm and cosy in the spring evenings; and had all you need for easy freedom camping.
But on top of that Iconic made the whole process of booking, pick up and return effortless, slick and convenient. They treat their customers like adults and welcome guests; trust them and have a set of terms and conditions which are both fair and sensible. Its little things like this which mount up to a memorable experience. Ricky at Christchurch was unfailingly helpful, enthusiastic and knowledgeable; dealing with the odd random question from me with good humour, patience and advice.
This is a small family business that deserve to succeed and certainly warrant the hard won support from knowledgeable travellers - you will be well satisfied if you place your faith and trust in them. 10 out of 10 is an easy decision to make.

I took some time researching camper hire companies in NZ and really pleased that we decided to go with Iconic. When we arrived after a long flight both Julie and David were really welcoming and helped us through the handover process which included a really thorough explanation of how everything worked so that when we left we had real confidence in what we were doing. The camper van itself was superb (Swift Rio), very comfortable and above all really easy to drive and economical.
Customer service throughout was first rate with no issues on hardback either.
Well done all at Iconic, although a little more expensive than some of the other companies we both agree that it was money well spent.
Thanks Mike and Ceri

You couldn't ask for more.....what a fabulous company from the people, their knowledge, customer service levels right down to the equipment in the motorhome.
This was a holiday of a lifetime for us not just a visit to New Zealand but a British and Irish Lions Tour too. We wanted everything to be perfect and Iconic did not let us down.
David at the Auckland branch was the best ambassador of customer service we have come across pretty much ever. Nothing was too much much trouble and he was genuinely interested in our holiday.
From the outset, over a year before arrival, Kelly from the Christchurch branch helped with our preparations and her advice and tips proved to be amazing.
Our motorhome was of top quality and had everything we needed to make it a home from home. We were extremely comfortable and the envy of many a supporter!
Well done Iconic .....if only all businesses worked to your standards.

Amazing customer service and incredible campervans.

The whole experience of renting a van from Iconic has been excellent. The team provided so much support and flexibility when planning my trip to ensure I had the best time which I really appreciated and when I was on the road they were always available to answer any questions I had.

I can't recommend Iconic enough and they should definitely be your first choice for campervans.

Iconic were recommended to us, by our friends, as I was struggling with the myriad of choices for motorhomes and wasn't being impressed by many of the other sites and companies. Using Iconic was one of the best decisions I made for our New Zealand experience. I cannot speak highly enough of the customer service we received. All of the team are exceptional people and are passionate about their country. If we come back to NZ, and believe us we want to, we will have no hesitation in using Iconic Motorhomes again. Thank you for helping to make our holiday so enjoyable.

Exceptional in every way from the people to the first class vehicle in top condition. I researched all the companies through Ranker's and Trip Advisor. Our first foray into motor homing AND driving on the 'correct" side of the road after a life time of right hand driving--so there was some trepidation which lead to our choice of the Rio which became our home for 6 wonderful weeks of touring NZ-north and south.
First, the people-Kelly was a huge factor in our decision with her immediate answers as we tried to decide 10 months ago, then the endless questions that we just couldn't seem to stop sending her--humour-warmth and professionalism. It did not stop once we had booked--the answers came the same way for months always tempered with a smile and honesty. Once we were actually in NZ--the entire staff was cut of the same cloth--amazing! David and Julie handled the in-trip questions while Kelly headed on a rare well deserved "tramping holiday" of her own. So top quality people who's goal is to ensure you have a great problem free holiday--Julie was there with smiles as we returned the Rio and made the ending so easy.
Now--the vehicle--our criteria were:-two people-carrying bikes-small to fit parking and narrow roads-in top condition so no mechanical problems-and luxurious--oh yes--pleasant on the eyes meaning a bit of style and no giant logo naming us as "tourist". The Rio fit the bill 100%--we were only the second renters so it was brand new--drove very easily with the Ducato diesel and was amazingly economical. All systems worked well and were well thought out. Being this small we did make our bed each night--but that became a timed event of laughter each evening.
Suggestions?- If you get the bike rack make sure you are 6' 1" with long arms--if not, take the optional step offered for getting in and out of the vehicle. Bikes were a blast-try all camping-Freedom-DOC & Parks.
