Stop contemplating everyone! Just do it….hire one of these beauties from Iconic Motorhomes! Our son travelled around the South Island a couple of years earlier, and had warned us to get a ‘comfortable motorhome’… so, on investigation, I found Iconic.
Kelly was wonderful in giving us the information we needed to make sure we didn’t miss the very best places to stop in the South Island. Their service was second-to-none.
The motorhome had everything and more! We were VERY surprised that free-camping essentially meant the only function missing was the microwave!
Easy to drive, park and manoeuvre (great lock for a long vehicle!), my husband was most impressed, especially with the fuel economy and the overall handling. Centrally heated, the van had a full kitchen, bed that didn’t require folding away, shower, toilet and comfortable seats. Loads of room for storing clothes and food!
A funny thing occurred when reluctantly returning the vehicle to Christchurch. We thought Iconic could do with a tip….what about a small vacuum cleaner for the small area of carpet? Well, the cupboard under the fridge was opened to reveal, you guessed it, a small vacuum!! This van has everything!
Luxury hotel on wheels. We loved it . Two weeks wasn’t enough - three possibly could have done it - four ideal!!
Thank you Kelly and the team at Iconic - you made a wonderful holiday come true!

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

Couldn't recommend enough
Iconic Motorhomes responds:
Lovely to meet you both
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.
Great motorhomes - also very good handling and fuel efficiency! Very friendly and good service, would go with them again!
I really recommend Iconic Motorhomes! The staff (Julie and Kelly) was great. They gave us a lot of valuable information and were very kind.
Our Motorhome (a Bolero) was very good and much better than the motorhome of our previous experience in Iceland with another rental company.
We also loved New Zealand and expect to travel around the country one more time (with an Iconic Motorhome, for sure).
This was our second motorhome rental in NZ and by far the best. The Bolero was just like new, very well equipped and in full working order. This is a very comfortable motorhome for two and we had a few nights with three of us which also worked well. Very easy to drive and manoeuvre.
The booking process was straightforward and Kelly responded to our questions very quickly.
Pick up and drop off in Auckland was very smooth and we appreciated the time Julie spent with us making sure we were ready to go.
No hesitation in recommending and sure we will use again.

Fantastic to hear
We visited NZ from the US, and rented a Bolero Camper Van from Iconic for our 3 week trip around the North Island.
Before our trip began, Kelly was super communicative and incredibly helpful with suggestions of how to spend our time, what to see, what we'd need to plan for, and opinions on timing for our travels. All her suggestions were spot-on. Because of her help and knowledge, we had an incredible trip.
Pick-up and return of the camper was seamless... Julie at the Auckland office provided everything we needed to know, and was supportive during the trip as well. She checked in a couple times during our travels to make sure everything was ok. Though nothing went wrong during our trip, Julie made us feel comfortable that she was there to help in case we needed it.
The camper itself was excellent – clean, ran perfectly, fully equipped with everything we needed, and easy to maneuver for a driver (me!) that was not used to left side driving on two-lane roads.
We plan to return for a tour of Northland and the South Island. Iconic will for sure be the first folks we'll reach out to for that trip!
Having decided last year that we would travel around NZ in a motorhome, we did a lot of research in the UK on what sort of van we would be happy with. We fell for the Swift Kon-Tiki and set about finding if any were available to hire in NZ. Iconic jumped out as specialists and we could not have chosen better. Everything was easy and there was a great deal of pre-holiday support, advice and guidance from Kelly.
We particularly wanted to travel both islands and so it was important that we could pick up the van on the North Island and return it on the South Island. This was no problem for Iconic.
We were met at the Auckland depot by Julie who could not have been more helpful and very patiently explained all the many things that we needed to know before travelling.
The motorhome itself was all that we expected and were very pleased that we had chosen to go for the top end of the range.
We spent a very happy 3 weeks travelling around both the North and South Islands and were very sad to have to return the van to Kelly in the Christchurch depot. It was great to put a face to the person that we had so much help from via email over the previous few months. As we had a midday flight to catch it was a bit rushed but nothing was too much trouble, including her sending the 3 pairs of spectacles by post that I managed to leave behind!
We saw many motorhomes on our travels and the Swift Kon-Tiki stood out by a long way. Anybody wishing to travel to NZ for a motorhome holiday should try one and do it using the services provided by the Iconic team.
Our experience with Iconic was outstanding from the very beginning. Kelly was very prompt and helpful in helping us organize our three-week itinerary. The 2-person Bolero we rented was immaculate and very comfortable. It was missing a few minor things that we thought would be included which we had to purchase (salt & pepper, garbage bags) but otherwise everything was as promised. We had minor car trouble when we picked up the rental in Auckland but the staff dealt with it fairly and efficiently. Overall, I would not hesitate in recommending Iconic to anyone — its vehicles are definitely the nicest ones you see in the campgrounds, and, being diesel vehicles, they are extremely fuel-efficient. A word of warning, especially to North Americans, planning your route: expect to cover about half the distance in a day that you think you will, as even major highways are narrow and winding. That said, the drivers are very polite and patient and don't seem to get frustrated with slow-moving RVs, and there are plenty of places to pull over and let accumulated traffic pass.
Fantastic clean comfy spacious motorhome. We chose the Bolero which was perfect for the two of us. Well equipped with a bed that stays up. Virtually brand new. The service and attention we received from Kelly and the Team was exceptional...so much so this was actually our second year running with this company. Last year's 'trip of a lifetime' has turned into an experience we can't help but repeat...we plan to book again for 2018!
