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.

Brilliant to hear that your holiday was so wonderful, that's our main priority
Thank you so much for the review
I cannot speak highly enough of Richy and his team at Iconic. We were traveling from the US and had 0 experience operating a campervan of this size, and Richy walked us through the whole thing! By the time we hit the road, I felt 100% confident. We ran into a problem with the check engine light flashing while on the road, and Richy answered his phone immediately and walked us through what was wrong. They had a welcome bag waiting for us when we got there and even gave us a postcard with a photo inside of us picking up the camper when we returned it! Richy was so friendly and helpful, working with him was truly one of the highlights of our trip. The camper itself (the Rio Black) was well-kept and sparkling clean. It was by far the nicest camper we looked at and was competitively priced. The bed was very comfortable. It was surprisingly easy to drive too! Thanks again Iconic!

If you have been searching for a Motorhome (campervan- although it is not a van in all the great ways) then search no further! I looked all of the web and looked at and read a lot of reviews and blogs and Iconic is absolutely the best that there is! We picked up our BOLERO BLACK EDITION motor home on April 17th - the day before my 33rd birthday and had it for 8 nights! Richy was our go-to person and he was awesome! Upon arriving to pick-up our Motorhome we got upgragded to a brand new Bolero for free with a larger bathroom than what was on the previous Bolero. It smelt new and was impeccably clean. I am OCD and so clean and new is exactly what I wanted. Another reason I went with Iconic and am happy with their homes! Richy walked us through everything. Since we are from the States we were nervous to rent a home that was 7 meters long and drive on the opposite side of the car and road...all being that we had never even driven anything bigger than a large SUV. But Richy walked us through everything. And there was notes and videos. And while we were cruising the South Island - a few questions we had came up and Richy was able to be reached via calling, texting, or messaging and helped us out and answered everything promptly. I recommend getting the premium insurance. We did, and I am so glad we did because we accidentally ran over a possum and it broke a part on the bottom of our motorhome but since we had the premium insurance it was not a lot of money out of pocket to fix. One thing that I was grateful for (since I am OCD clean) was that I asked for an extra set of sheets and towels and they were given to us for free! That way 1/2 way through the trip we had fresh items. And we also received a Tom Tom GPS for free just for asking. The best part truly was how clean the motorhome was and how most everything you would need (pots, pans,bottle opener etc.) was already on board. We ate on the motorhome a few times and cooked spaghetti one night! Highly recommend! -Kate

When my wife and I chose to Caravan across New Zealand, Iconic Motorhomes gave us the ultimate experience in comfort, service and reliability. I know that sounds like an ad for them but they honestly were so helpful durring every step of our trip. Checking in at times to see how we were getting along with the Bolero Black Edition Motorhome.
Upon arrival (Auckland) and dropping off (Christchurch) the team was smart, easy going and friendly. A family feel but with a professional take on the equipment. Instructions were clear on the home and how to run it and to keep it in shape for a worry free trip, as well as how to drive in the left lanes of New Zealand. (Sing to yourself.... Dri'ving on the left, Dri'ving on the left...) Even over Easter weekend they were quick to respond to a question we had about Queenstown. (You have to see Queenstown)
All of their caravans are look top notch, brand new and in fantastic shape. Our Bolero was roomy with plenty of storage space. Linens, sheets, blankets, kitchen and bath towels felt brand new. Its kitchen was stocked with all the cooking tools we needed. Bathroom was the biggest you will find, with a separate shower. The water was hotter than ours at home with great water pressure. Bed was "medium" firm for great naps and sleeping after our hard hikes.
The Bolero provided us with everything we need for our 3 week tour of both Islands. GPS was a must and worked great. We also got the Movie package. (A hard drive with over a hundred movies) Worth it. Most campsites have poor internet.
We stayed at campervan sites the whole time but Free Camping was never out of reach. Driving the 7 meter Motorhome was tricky at first but both my wife and I got use to it fairly quickly.
We both highly recommend Iconic Motorhomes for your New Zealand road trip. You wont be disappointed.

We had the most fantastic holiday - Iconic Motorhomes in Christchurch have the perfect blend of warmth and professionalism. Their little touches of hospitality didn't go unnoticed - a homely welcome pack, extra towels and blankets, regular emails touching base with us and a clean, warm and comfy camper made for a superb trip. Kathrin was excellent with her orientation and Ritchy was so helpful with our return, even showing us what we could look forward to next time if we decided to go bigger for the kids! We would not hesitate to recommend Iconic Motorhomes - they are a cut above the more well known commercial brands we have experienced in the past.
Iconic Motorhomes responds:
Super to hear such a positive review.
The team appreciates this so much.

This company defines customer service and takes it to a whole new level. If I could give them an 11, I would. First of all, they have a best in class product. Our van was both state of the art and was outfitted with top of the line linens, glassware, pillows etc. It was like a 4 star hotel on wheels. In addition their support and sales people are outstanding. Richie was available to us 24/7 (if needed) and provided extraordinary small things like a welcome bag and thank you note. I know that might sounds trivial, but it is highly representative of their level of care. This was quite important to us as my 25 year old daughter and I were traveling from the US for two weeks alone. We had a spectacular trip that was possible in part by the experience we had with our camper. As this was a trip of a lifetime for us, I'm not sure we will be back but if we do, we will absolutely use Iconic Motorhomes again!

Many thanks for your outstanding review, its much appreciated by our team
We (2 persons) had a Bolero Black Edition from Iconic for 47 days, travelled 6.000 kms on South- and North Island and made our experiences with the vehicle as follows: If you look for a campervan with a high level of comfort and luxury and if you are prepared to spend some extra money for that, then the Bolero from Iconic will be the right choice. The automotive components of the Fiat Ducato worked without a single problem and the diesel-engine was really low in consumption. Manufacture date was November 2016 and the km reading was 62.500.
Unfortunately there were some problems with infrastructure components (water-pump, gas-feed, waste-level-sensor, ....), which annoyed us from time to time. Some problems I could fix by myself after visiting a hardware store. So if you are a good craftsman, you will have a lot of fun with the Bolero :-))
Special thanks to Julie for her support during presales, to Luisa for her excellent support during return of the vehicle and to Richie and Michael for the quick replacement of the water-pump at the Christchurch depot.
Wir (2 Personen) hatten einen Bolero Black Edition von Iconic für 47 Tage, reisten 6.000 km auf der Sued- und Nordinsel und machten damit folgende Erfahrungen: Wenn man einen Campervan sucht, der ein hohes Mass an Komfort und Luxus bietet, und wenn man bereit ist, dafür etwas mehr Geld auszugeben, dann wird der Bolero von Iconic die richtige Wahl sein. Die Fahrzeugkomponenten des Fiat Ducato funktionierten ohne das geringste Problem und der Dieselverbrauch war erstaunlich niedrig. Das Herstelldatum war November 2016 und der Kilometerstand war 62.500.
Leider gab es einige Probleme mit den Infrastrukturkomponenten (Wasserpumpe, Gaszufuhr, Brauchwassersensor, ....), die uns zeitweise ziemlich nervten. Einige Probleme konnte ich nach einem Besuch im Baumarkt selbst beheben. Wenn man also handwerklich nicht ungeschickt ist, kann man eine Menge Spass mit dem Bolero haben. :-))
Iconic Motorhomes responds:
Thank you for your well constructed review Gerd
Our maintenance and service programme of all our vehicles prior to each hire, ensures that all items are working as you leave our depots, Iconic motorhomes are maintained to the highest standards, unfortunately as with any product items can sometimes fail or be misunderstood by the operator, especially when on a longer hire.
We have a great back up team to ensue that in those circumstances you will never feel alone or abandoned.
The pump & sensors generally cause very few issues as they are of a top quality product with few moving parts.
PS The motorhome registration date of your motorhome was November 2017 :) and on the whole our prices are below our competitors who all offer inferior motorhomes.
From the minute we walked through the gate to pick up our Escape Motorhome we were welcomed by Richie. He could not have been more friendly and helpful. He spent so much time showing us how everything worked. Nothing was a problem to him. The Escape was bigger than we expected but worked out well as 11 days in a smaller motorhome would have been tough. The motorhome was modern and in excellent condition. Had no problems or break downs which was great. Even if we had Ritchie would have us sorted with repairs in no time. You wont go wrong booking an Iconic motorhome. Highly recommended.
Cheers to Richie and his team.
From Kevin and Fiona all the way from Scotland.
This was the best experience. From the free upgrade on arrival to the last day dropoff Iconic have been amazing! The campervan was awesome really comfortable and easy to drive. The Iconic team (Luisa) are super helpful and amazing to deal with. Cannot recommend them enough best holiday we've had!

After many hours of comparisons we decided to book with Iconic motor homes and we are glad that we did.
We picked up from Auckland and met Julie, she had been our contact for booking and was really helpful, she ran through everything we needed to know and the lovely touch’s of the welcome pack etc were much appreciated.
There were only the 2 of us, so the Sundance (now named Monty) was ideal, we had to make up the bed each night but that was not a problem and took about 2 minutes each night. Most of Iconics motorhomes seem quite new, Sundance was a little older but that didn’t matter, it was very comfortable and plenty of storage and perfect for us.
We hired a bbq which we used a lot, also an inverter which we didn’t really need, we took a mobile phone charger, which was great, we also hired the film pack which we didn’t use.
We had a couple of small problems with Monty and Iconic sorted these out without any fuss, even staying late, to replace a broken cupboard latch.
We returned Monty to Christchurch, where we meet Richie and Kay, who were so friendly and of course heard all about the rocket, yes a rocket and if you read this Michael, we would to hear how it goes.
So basically we would definitely recommend Iconic motorhomes, thanks for making our holiday truly unforgettable.
We travelled in New Zealand from the 8/3/19 - 17/3/19.
Loved every minute of it, especially the touch of luxury from Iconic Motorhomes. We chose a Bolero as there were just 2 of us and it was a perfect size; (we are both tall, so if you are long, don't be fooled by the initial reaction of small bed!! It was fine) Luisa, from Auckland spent time to thoroughly explain the operation of the van and the so many luxury extras and was very generous with return times and emergency contact info (her mobile!), which of course we didn't need, but piece of mind is a great advantage when travelling. The van was easy to drive, easy to park and easy to holiday in. We also felt very smug when pulling into holiday parks, because we were sleek and had the best looking RV!
One piece of advice when booking (especially online and you need to add extras at time of booking) is include the weber bbq. If you want to free camp, which is the best, and the weather is amazing, the bbq is a necessity and we didn't select it....So as that was not the fault of Iconic but our choice, we give a 10/10 rating to Luisa and Team Auckland of Iconic Motorhomes New Zealand!!
We rented our motorhome from March 7-27, 2019 to tour the North and South Islands of NZ.
In preparation for our extended visit I spent a good deal of time researching available options for "camping" and really wanted a vehicle that would be safe, comfortable and uncompromising. We live on a boat and know about smaller spaces but also know about good use of such space. The Bolero checked the boxes for our wants and needs and we were not disappointed. We liked the idea of solar panels and propane fuel for cooking and refrigeration as that allowed us the option to freedom camp without worry. We also liked the option of having an enclosed shower and proper bed that did not have to be assembled for use. After getting used to driving on the left and familiarizing myself with the controls, the vehicle handled the steep, winding and narrow roads without difficulty and enough acceleration to maintain a safe speed. The vehicle was fitted quite well with amenities, cooking utensils and various products for maintenance.
The Iconic team were great from the beginning with communicating, answering questions and making sure we were taken care of.
They helped us in planning our itinerary with suggestions on what not to miss and offered ideas about various accommodation choices. Upon arrival in Auckland, Luisa gave us a thorough walk through with explanations on operation and care and answered our questions in a timely manner while on the road. Rene made sure all systems were a go and swapped out a TV for us. Upon departure in Christchurch, we were met by Richy and Kay to assist us in the exit procedure and were well taken care of while waiting for transportation to the airport. We even got a tour of the workshop area which we found very interesting. The folks at Iconic truly enjoy what they do and run a well oiled operation. Good on ya, Mates!
Thanks for taking care of us and keep up the good work!
Excellent experience with Iconic. Confortable, we did more than 2000 km without any problems. Richy was very kind and professional explaining us how this motorhome functions. The return was easy and simple. We have enjoyed the whole experience and will do it again!
The campervan itself was awesome had plenty of things as required for camping due to some problems as trying to get the microwave tn go was quite hard to use also if you do get a stone chip on the windscreen be prepared to pay for it as the insurance does not cover and I actually got a small chip which cost me $172.50 so was not happy about having to pay for it a small chip on the screen as all other insurance companies do cover and other rental companies do cover their windscreen as well
