My fiance and I have nothing but positive things to say about Sunrise, they provided a clean, reliable and versatile vehicle along with all the support we could have possibly needed to provide us with the trip of a lifetime. We still think back to our campervan 'Trevor' with fondness as it (he) was so comfortable and so versatile. One of the best things about the trip was that we were able to stay where others couldnt and longer than those who could. The solar panels charged througout the day and the gas was so efficient (we only refilled once over our 5 week trip and even then it was still half full) such that we had more than enough power to keep us going wherever we were. So while others were having to travel to the larger campsites to plug in (we met loads of campervanners who were out of power and had to find a large campsite), we were able to pick and choose sites that were off the beaten track, quiet and beautiful (the self contained campsite at the top of Log Race Road in Piha - and its views- were incredible). The Sunrise team offered support every step of the way. When all wrapped together, this meant that we had no worries, no concerns, we were away from the crowds and we could just get on with appreciating how amazing NZ is and enjoying our time away.

We have nothing but positive things to say about our experience with Sunrise Holidays. This was our 3rd campervan holiday in NZ and Sunrise is by far the best company we have used.
Our van "Val" was excellent and had everything in it we needed for our trip. We did a mix of free camping and staying in holiday parks and the solar kept the battery charged nicely. The gas heater was really nicer to have on a couple of cold free camping nights.
Thanks to Sarah for her prompt communication so we always knew the status of our quote/booking. Also a big thanks to Nathan for fixing one minor issue and ensuring everything was perfect with the van; we really appreciated your efforts.

Highly recommend Sunrise Holidays; you wont be disappointed

We travelled around the South Island in a Sunrise Takapu campervan with my family and it was an amazing way to travel. The campervan was equipped with everything we needed for our trip. My 2 & 4 year old loved all the space they had, and we were nice and warm every night with the gas heater.

The solar panels meant we hardly ever had to 'plug in' which meant that we got to experience some amazing freedom camping spots (highly recommend Warrington beach just North of Dunedin).

The campervan was easy to drive, and everything inside was easy to use. An amazing family holiday creating wonderful memories. Highly recommend Sunrise Holidays! Can't wait for our next trip!

Amazing experience!

From our initial booking enquiry emails with Nathan and Sarah, to our pick up/intro to our camper all the way to the drop off at the end, the whole Sunrise team were so friendly and helpful and really encompassed that welcoming, kind and easy going NZ spirit that we fell in love with during our trip.

We booked the Weka Tribute 625 and travelled for 22 days, Auckland to Christchurch. The camper itself was terrific and so well equipped with everything we needed and more. Layout was great and the size for the 2 of us (couple) was perfect. We liked feeling like “locals” in the non-branded camper too. We could easily have kept travelling for months and months comfortably.

We had some battery trouble on our second/third day in, but Nathan quickly organised a camper swap which had us back on the road again within a few hours. Amazing service and no niggles for the remainder of the trip. The peace of mind knowing that Nathan was only a phone call away was really re-assuring.

We can't wait to book again with Sunrise for our next trip and recommend to others 100%!

We had a wonderful month in New Zealand in our lovely Piwakawaka Campervan called "Henry", or "Sir Henry", as we called him. He never failed to bring us to our destination, travelling was smooth, cooking in the campervan was really fun. I think it was the perfect size for me and my fiancé. It was also well equipped with anything you would need in that time. As we were self contained we were able to camp in some amazing spots, as in the Bay of Island in a lovely bay, next to lake in the Fjordlands at Lake Manapouri or Lake Pukaki, just to name a few. We didn't have any issues - the only minor thing, that was a little bit annoying was the fridge cover, that went loose quite in the beginning. But on our campervan checkup at Don's place that issues was quickly fixed and the fridge opened like a charm after that. If you have the time we highly recommend Don's Organic garden close to Motueka. It was such an amazing experience, as Don is such a sweet person and the campsite was amazing.
When we picked up the campervan in Auckland the people were really kind and nice. Especially the lady, who showed us the campervan was super sweet and we felt really welcome.
When we dropped the campervan we were picked up by Ross, who is also an amazing person, and he was really sweet and gave us some nice tips for Christchurch. Everything was so uncomplicated - I can highly recommend Sunrise Holidays for your Holiday in NZ.
We will definitely come back some time with our family and rent a bigger campervan und travel NZ again. The experience was wonderful. Thanks Sunrise! :)

Kindest Regards,
Martha & David

Renting a campervan from Sunrise for my month in NZ was a great experience from start to finish!

They offered me a van that was just right for me at a price well below their competitors, and were friendly and helpful in the run up to my trip. They collected me from the airport, and picking up the campervan must only have taken 20 minutes or so. During the trip they were in touch to check all was well and to give me important travel updates, and I even stayed for free at their base near Picton where I got a free vehicle checkup. I'd been unlucky to have a puncture, which they changed for me and Nathan, the owner, even drove out to meet me to give me a replacement spare wheel - I was touched that he was so determined to make the effort! Returning the vehicle was very straightforward, and they were completely accommodating about the delays I encountered with the Picton ferry.

All in all, Sunrise went above and beyond to be helpful, friendly and accommodating at every turn and if I went back to NZ there's no one else I'd go to for a campervan. Thanks for all your hard work!

As you were passing through my home town I was indeed very determined to get you that tyre, I was aware of your tight schedule and been a weekend didn't want to risk the chance of you getting another flat without a spare. You must have enjoyed the South island so much, from memory you had only given yourself a day and a half days to get back up to Auckland. Enjoy the rest of your year Nathan and the Sunrise team

We enjoyed "our" Sunrise campervan for six weeks. The freedom to be able to camp on the grid was an important reason to choose Sunrise. The personal contacts both during the preparation of our trip and during the period that we were in NZ were great! Certainly after a minor accident, Nathan provided excellent guidance. We would like to travel with Sunrise again.

We rented a campervan with Sunrise Holidays for three weeks and are very satisfied! We had a lot of questions before the day of rental and Sarah responded to all of our questions very fast and was extremely helpful!
When picking up the van we received all instructions needed in a very good way.

During our rental we had an issue which Nathan at Sunrise Holidays solved very quickly.

The campervan had everything you needed, good storage, bed was very comfy and the shower was big! Returning the campervan was also very easy and Eddie who was there when we returned the campervan was very friendly and helpful and even drove us to the city where we had to go afterwards!

I highly recommend everyone to rent with Sunrise Holidays and next time we will go to New Zealand we will definitely book with them again without any doubt! The service is top class!

Million thanks to Nathan, Eddie and the rest of the team at Sunrise Holidays.

Voordat we aan onze reis naar Nieuw Zeeland begonnen hebben we nadrukkelijk gezocht naar een camperverhuurder die garant zou staan voor goede service en support. Direct al na de eerste mailuitwisseling was het contact met Sunrise prettig en persoonlijk. Zij gaven ons direct vertrouwen dat onze campertrip perfect in orde zou komen door o.a. veel goede adviezen die belangrijk zijn voordat je aan zo'n reis begint. Voor ons was het namelijk de eerste keer dat we met een camper op reis zouden gaan.
We kijken nu terug op een van de mooiste reiservaringen, mede door de goede support van Sunrise.
Onderweg hadden we een probleempje met de olie van de campervan. Nathan heeft direct actie ondernomen en kwam gelijk de dag erna zelf in een vervangende auto. Spontaan bood hij ons een lunch aan voor het ongemak.
De reparatie werd ondanks dat het zondag was gelijk bij een locale garage uitgevoerd waardoor we dezelfde dag weer met onze camper verder konden. Het was leuk dat het omruilen van de auto's bij het strand plaatsvond waar wij verbleven. Nathan nam de gelegenheid om nog even te zwemmen met z'n vader. Daarna heeft hij voor hij vertrok nog veel goede tips gegeven voor onze verdere reis.
Absoluut een dikke 10 voor Sunrise.

Thanks to the whole sunrise holidays family. We have had a wonderful and impressive holiday in New Zealand. From the beginning we#ve had the feeling that we trusted the right guys regarding the renting of a campervan. The support we have experienced was really good. As we have had a small technical problem in the beginning with our campervan Nathan has offered us another bigger campervan, free of charge of course. You can get in touch with the sunrise holiday team at any time and are going to get helpful answers immediately.
The campervans have a really good configuration with everything you need and even more, like the speed cruise control which helps a lot when you are driving more than 3500km, as we did. Due to the sunrise panels on the roof of the campervan we could easily enjoy the pleasure of free camping. All the campervans of Sunrise are in really good shape and not that old compared to the Campervans offered from the other renting companies.
We can definetly recommend sunrise holidays to everyone who wants to experience a great and wonderful time in New Zealand without worrying about the campervan at any time.
Thank you very much guys for making this vacation to one of the best we have ever had and probably will have. We really got the feeling that we were part of your family.

Cheers and best wishes from Germany,

Mareike and Marcel.
