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
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. :-))
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
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
My husband and I toured the South Island in one of Iconic's Rio Black 2-berth motorhomes. What an amazing trip! We absolutely loved our vehicle and the team at the Christchurch depot. I can recommend Iconic to anyone, without hesitation. One anecdote - when we picked up our motorhome it was spotlessly clean and felt like we were the first ones to rent it, which meet my expectations for the premium experience we were paying for. But I became more and more impressed with Iconic's team after we'd been traveling for a week or so because the home gets so dirty and marked up so quickly when you are in and out of such a small space all the time. I was constantly doing a quick sweep to keep the dirt out. And there was definitely more than once were we dropped food on the carpet or any number of other mess making things. But still the home was spotless when we picked it up and I'm sure was spotless to be ready for the next couple very soon after we dropped it off.

We were very pleased with everything with Iconic Motorhomes. From the moment we arrived everything was explained how to work the unit for our next 17 days on the road. We never RV before. Everything was excellent. Great way to travel as we could camp anywhere with our Bolero camper van and not worry as we were self contained. We were pleasantly surprised how fuel efficient this RV was as well. Return was hassle free. Would definitely recommend this company to anyone.
Thanks Richy and team.
We had a Bessie for 32 nights which we picked up in Christchurch. Lucia and Richie showed us all the workings & we went off for our adventure. Few phone calls and messages exchanged to clarify a couple of things but someone was always on hand. Amazing amount of room for clothes to hang and drawers as well. Bed ultra comfy. Lots of mirrors and easy to dry hair in camper in sight of them. Heating worked well on the odd night we needed it.Was able to take full advantage of oven and hob cooking up several meals. Lots of space for food and drink storage as well. Felt very relaxed the whole time and my husband said how well “Bessie” handled driving and manoeuvring even the twisty roads. Covered the south and north islands and was greeted back by Lucia in Auckland. Sad to say bye! Brilliant experience.
We thoroughly enjoyed the experience of working with Iconic. They are a professional group and made it very easy for us to enjoy our trip. The equipment was first class and the support was great. .
They know what they are doing and seem to predict your need before you have it. The training on the arrival was very thorough, The supplies in the RV were all of top quality and everything worked, they sent timely reminders of things to consider during our trip which showed they really care.
I would highly recommend others to use Iconic.
A thousand thanks and major kudos to Iconic and in particular, Richie, for providing us with such a wonderful experience and introduction to the world of motor homes! As “first timers”, our trepidation was, to say the least, high! Our 8 day rental of the Bolero to tour the South Island was nothing less than fabulous. The motor home was spotless, extremely well appointed and frankly, beautiful! We enjoyed the trip of a lifetime and now in retirement, are seriously considering purchasing a motor home when we return to the US to tour the States! Thanks for everything from the start of the rental process to the completion of our trip. What a Delightful adventure you folks facilitated on our behalf!
