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 rented the Bolera motor home for a week and traveled around the south island of New Zealand with my wife and 3 year old daughter. It was the trip of a lifetime! The people at Iconic did a fantastic job making our trip very easy and comfortable. The Bolera motor home is a first class experience. We were able to freedom camp every night except once which made it very enjoyable. I would recommend booking with Iconic Motorhomes to anyone that is looking for a stress free adventure and vacation.

My husband and I rented a Bolero for our 10th anniversary trip to NZ- South Island and we had the most amazing experience. Fabulous service with a welcoming smile. Everything was ready when we arrived. Richie did a great job presenting the RV and teaching us how to use it. It was our 1st time driving a motorhome and we were a bit apprehensive about how comfortable would it be to drive such a huge van.. but it was a breeze. Richie was available on phone throughout our trip and did not hesitate to respond to us immediately even on a weekend.
Bolero was equipped with everything you need, the interiors were super comfortable, with ample storage. This baby is luxury on wheels!
Iconic Motors and Richie both have our vote and we can't wait to return with our kids!!

Well where do I start, right from first contact nothing was too much trouble. I changed my dates several times but it was bo trouble. Finally we settled on some dates, everything was explained in great detail including suggestion of places to visit. I has previous experience of swift motor homes so knew what expect. On arrival at the Auckland depot everything was as expected, Julie was friendly and efficient in her explanation of the motorhome. Then it was off on our travels and the motorhome performed faultlessly throughout, even a slight problem with a stone chipped windscreen was fixed easily. We completed at around 3000km in 2 weeks with ease. I can highly recommend Iconic motor homes and their team at Auckland. I will definitely be back soon

I cannot explain in strong enough terms how fantastic the team at Iconic Motorhomes were during our visit to New Zealand in January. From check-in through to returning the vehicle the team were friendly, informative, flexible and helpful. The motorhome provided by Iconic Motorhomes (the Kon-Tiki Black Edition) was the best vans we saw during our time exploring the South Island - so much so people on the campsites we visited actively walked up to look at and admire our van. The vehicle was perfectly clean, equip with everything needed and practically brand new. The Kon-Tiki is great if you're looking for a luxury option, but we also looked at the Bolero when checking-out and this looked fantastic too. I would recommend Iconic Motorhomes in the strongest possible terms to anyone visiting New Zealand and I will be using them again in the future when I return to explore the North Island. Many thanks to all the team for making our trip so fantastic.

A great Company, lovely staff that could not have been more helpful. Special thanks to Richard who answered all of our questions promptly and efficiently throughout our monthly rental. We had a full briefing when we collected the vehicle and were given plenty of time to get used to it before we left. We were also given loads of time when we returned it to pack all of our belongings into the suitcases that we were able to leave at their offices. The only improvement that they could make would be to offer "no excess" insurance. Mike sure you make time to visit Michael in their workshop in Christchurch. He has the equipment to make just about every part on the vans that could break! All in all a great holiday and a great Company. Thank you Iconic.

In January 2019 my family completed a 20 night trip in the South Island, using an Escape vehicle supplied by Iconic Motor Homes. Our trip was amazing, and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience of travelling in an RV. The vehicle was superb!! It never missed a beat mechanically over 2000km through some very tricky mountain terrain. It had everything we needed for storage of clothes and food, and the kitchen was fully equipped to allow us to make our own meals everywhere we went. Best of all, the customer service from the Iconic team was spot on, from our arrival, to helping us solve some minor issues along the trip, and finally to our departure on the last day.

We would highly recommend Iconic to other families planning an RV holiday in New Zealand.

After our NZ adventure in 2017 in our Sundance motorhome that we rented with Iconic, we decided to come back in 2018 to continue the adventure and rented the Sundance campervan again. Booking the campervan was smoothly arranged (thank you Kay) and the NZ trip started good with a great welcome by Richy and after refreshing our memory, we were on the road again. The trip was great and we fully enjoyed the comfort of the Sundance (manual gears, toilet, shower and a great oven in the motorhome).

The service of Iconic was really appreciated when we had a small mechanical problem (on New Yearsday) and needed assistance. Thanks to Iconic, everything was solved quickly. Also the experience of the AA service mechanic that solved our problem was very positive. He mentioned that cooperating with Iconic is smoothly and that cooperating this way is not the standard within the NZ motorhome rental industry. Within a few hours we were on the road again and continued to enjoy our NZ trip.

Long story short, perfect luxurious campervans that also looks great, a personal touch when picking up and handing the vehicle but best of all, great service when you need it most !

Thank you Richy, we had a great time again and won't hesitate to recommend Iconic and use Iconic again when we return

My girlfriend and myself rented a camper van from Iconic for 14 days. Our trip started and ended in Christchurch and we rented a Bolero model.
Our trip was perfect from the start till the end. That was partly thanks to our first Camper van experience and how Iconic helped us feel so comfortable with the car.
From Christchurch, Richy introduced us to all the features and the functioning of the van and most importantly we felt that we could rely on him at any time of the trip if we needed to. Richy replied instantaneously to all message on whatsapp (which was quite useful when we needed some confirmation on the electrical tools ,or when he arranged a tire replacement in Te Anau at our discretion!)
The car was quite recent (18xxx km) and perfectly working. it had all kind of features that you could ever think of and was quite high tech. Kitchen and bathroom . areas were hugely functional and useful.
On the top of it Iconic treated us like 5 stars hotel guests, the van was provided with everything you would need to live for 2 weeks ( awesome towels, soaps etc etc). It as clean and as welcoming as a luxury top hotel could be.

Eventually, we would highly recommend Iconic, both because of the quality of the camper van they rent . They are far better than all the others we have seen. But also because of the service that tehy provide during your trip. You will feel completely stress-less as soon as you depart from the office location, and that is exactly what you are looking for when you are not "too" used to campervans !

We recently spent 2 weeks in the Escape touring the South Island. From when we booked to return, the team were super helpful and always available if we needed some help while on the road. The camper was perfect for us with 2 kids who especially loved the bunk beds at the back of the van. Everything we needed was provided, quick trip to the supermarket and we were off. This was the perfect solution for us to do a bit of freedom camping, the app that the team gave us (Campable) was also fantastic and allowed us to stay in some beautiful spots, Lake Tekapo in particular was stunning. I would not hesitate to book through Iconic again.

Brilliant company - we are so glad we used Iconic. We had a Rio Bolero for 10 days and drove from Christchurch to Auckland spending most of our time in the South Island. The van was excellent - the walkthrough was very thorough and great. The van was spotlessly clean, towels and bedding were great with a great starter kit - in fact we bought nothing except for some kitchen towel and our food. I had one cause to contact Iconic during our trip to ask if I could take the van across the Crown Range to Wanaka from Queenstown - the response was immediate (via WhatsApp - with pictures (which were annotated of the van in case we needed more power to get up the hills)) Brilliant!!! I cannot recommend this company enough. We will be back to spend more time in the South Island.

This was our second rental from Iconic Motorhomes. We previously rented in 2012 shortly after the earthquake in NZ. We arrived in Christchurch at Iconic in 2018 and found a vital company as caring of the customer in 2018 as 2012. Our motorhome was ready and waiting for us. It sparkled as if it had just been driven off the lot. Instead, the motorhome was 3 years old but clearly well taken care of.
We were lucky to have 3 weeks to travel the South Island in Iconic’s Black Bolero motorhome. What a blast. Everything you could possibly want is included in this model.
At Pelorus Bridge we pulled out the outdoor table and chairs, rolled out the awning on the side of the motor home and watched the sun set next to the river.
In Blenheim we rented bikes and toured the wineries. We returned to the motor home with wines to enjoy during our trip. The Bolero has a good-sized refrigerator so we were able to use one drawer to store the wine.
Another great feature is the bed in the back. It was so wonderful to not have to “pull’ it out and set it up each night.
Bottom line, whether you are freedom camping or staying at a Top 10 Holiday Park, Iconic Motorhomes is the way to go!!!
Finally, we had an excellent experience with the staff at Iconic in Christchurch from the day we picked it up, until the day we returned it. They explained every aspect of the rental experience from day one to drop off. It was the best experience we've had renting transportation. We would like to thank Richie and his crew who made us feel like we were the best customers they've ever had.
We can honestly say Iconic motorhomes completely exceeded our expectations. We’ll be back. That’s a guarantee. Thank you Iconic.

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!
