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!

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!

Cannot say enough wonderful things about the Iconic team and especially Kelly! From initial inquiry to returning our motorhome, everything was flawless. We rented a Bolero for two weeks and had the time of our lives. This was a very well appointed motorhome with everything we would ever need on the road.The Bolero was easily the nicest motorhome we came across in our travels and we were happy to have some luxuries in our home away from home, such as a full size fridge, large kitchen and bathroom and even TV! Great power and fuel economy at the same time. Will definitely be returning to this beautiful country and renting from Iconic again!
Everything was just perfect. A real luxury in comparison to other motorhomes. Kelly from the christchurch office was very helpful and assisted us throughout our journey.
Hired a Swift Bolero from Iconic Motorhomes for 32 days, collected in and AKL and returned to CHC. From initial enquiry to collecting, the customer service from Kelly and the team was exceptional. We wanted a very comfortable Motorhome for the month and we're very pleased with the Bolero. Lots of great info provided and recommended a Kiwi Parks card fo discounts including the Bluebridge Ferry. We used to use Kea who were good, but we're bought out by Maui, but Iconic are in a different league and we're excellent. If you want a luxury Motorhome I can't recommend them enough. Get in touch with Kelly she is a star.
Let's start with the negatives... there are none!
Positives - how do I even begin?! Kelly was perfect - from start to finish I've never worked with someone so efficient, so generous, kind and extremely helpful! If it weren't for her - I doubt our trip would have gone so well, she knows this business and this beautiful country inside and out, she knew exactly what we were after and helped us map our wonderful trip! I can't thank her enough, her daughter too; well as the saying goes "like mother like daughter" both amazing. The bolero we collected 10 days ago, and it was fantastic, you really pay for the service and everything in between. From the dunny to the bed it's top quality, the finishings on the cupboards, it was great! I'm so sad to be leaving my little motorhome, my husband and I loved every minute of every day!
Anytime I had a question prior to collecting the bolero Kelly wrote detailed emails letting me know where to go and what to do, I'd never been to NZ aside from Auckland so we stuck to the South Island from Christchurch - she gave us so much info I was worried we'd never get to do everything, but she knew just where to go how long it'd take us, so we were able to do/ go everywhere and finish up in Akaroa!
Our flight was at midday and I was slightly worried about missing it, so she offered to let us stay in the iconic car park so there were no problems in the morning, and that really really helped us keep cool before our flight to Auckland!
Thank you again for everything, it was a stress free and lovely honeymoon! We'll definitely be talking you up around the world!

This is the fourth time we have rented from Iconic and on each occasion the service has been first class and the vehicle provided excellent. There is a price premium to pay for this but as a percentage of the overall trip costs (especially when travelling from Europe), it is acceptable and well worthwhile in our experience. Kelly and Georgia deserve top marks for customer service and make the whole process of booking, collecting and returning the vehicle effortless and enjoyable. Highly recommended!
We hired 2 Bolero Motorhomes from Iconic. The presentation was immaculate and the service provided by Kelly was fantastic. I cannot recommend them highly enough. Nothing is too much trouble and inquiries are dealt with immediately.
We hired very good 2016 4 Berth B. Great helpful management team.
Will come back in 2018 this time hiring 2 5 berths.
Blown away by NZ. What a country
I am so thankful for finding this rental company. We rented the Sundance which is the smallest in their range, and from the moment we saw it we knew it would make our holiday. Apart from the modern look and lush feel of the Motorhome, Small details like the larger water and waste tanks, fridge that worked also on gas, heating also, four burner hob, satellite tv ... Are really things you would take for granted but help not being dependent on holiday parks, constantly looking for dump stations, water etc. the van was very powerful, even for the steep Queenstown roads! We went throughout NZ in 3 weeks with this Motorhome, did about 4000km, and the van is very economical too.. Also had Cruise control !!! Kelly was very hospitable and was always available for my every query. Thanks guys, definitely see you again !
I highly recommend Iconic Motorhomes in Christchurch. We rented the Bolero 4 person motorhome. Although it was only my wife and I, we got the 4 person because we preferred having the additional seat that could be used during a drive. This model had a permanent bed in the back, a nice kitchen in the middle and the couch and table behind the drivers seat. There was sufficient storage and Iconic even stored our 3 big suitcases in Christchurch so they wouldn’t take up space during our 3 week holiday. The kitchen layout was very usable. The sink was adequate but we generally used the campground kitchens for dishes after finding out how wonderful New Zealand campgrounds are at providing kitchens.
The reservation and pre trip process was superb. Kelly, our contact, was very responsive during the booking process. She even provided us with suggestions for our trip when we asked.
The motorhome was ready and waiting for us when we arrived. The Bolero was clean and well maintained. Georgia gave us a thorough walk through the day of pickup. They even had a picture taken of us in from of the Bolero before we left.
During Trip, we only had a couple issues. One, which was my fault when I scraped the rear bumper while pulling out of a scenic stop and not realizing a dip was too big to pull straight out of. The only issue with the camper was the backup Camera stopped working. We called Iconic and they walked me through possible reasons and even had me replace a fuse. Replacing the fuse didn’t fix the backup camera but we always had the non driver get out when backing anyway so it was just an inconvenience.
Post Trip, Iconic was ready for us when arrived. The checkout process was quick and they even called us a cab to get to the airport.
Overall, out experience with Iconic motorhomes was excellent and I would definitely welcome renting from them again if we get back to beautiful New Zealand again.
Without any doubt the best motorhome rental agency we ever used in all our travels arround the world. Thx Kelly in Christchurch and Julie in Auckland for helping us to plan our awsome NZ motorhome experiance. Both vehicles were top nodge and we could clearly see the envy from the neighbour campers everytime we pulled into a camping. Rating 10 out of 10! /Andrej & Xiao Yu from Sweden
These guys are easily the best motorhome company in NZ. The whole process was incredibly smooth and Kelly was so helpful every step of the way. When we picked our motorhome up in Auckland David was great and explained everything perfectly. Along the way any problems that arose were solved immediately and we could always call for further assistance. We finally got to meet the rest of the team when we returned our motorhome in Christchurch and they were all so welcoming and friendly. If you want a stress-free, relaxing motorhome experience in NZ then these are the guys for it!
