We thoroughly enjoyed our travels in this 6 birth Sunrise camper van. It coped extremely well with the steep gradient hill climbs and was generally very comfortable to drive. The cooking, hot water and heating systems far exceeded our expectations. What did disappoint was the condition of the upholstery. All of the seating, including the ones to be slept on looked grubby and were stained. The table seat had a large unsightly stain. There were some electrical issues with vehicle lights not working and a satnav that did not work, all of which we thought should have been checked prior to hire. A few items of linen had been clearly missed by the cleaners which prompted my wife to wash all the linen as a precaution prior to use! We made use of the Sunrise camp south of Abel Tasman and met Don. The site was in a great location and we were given fresh veg. In all a good experience travelling South Island.

From the beginning, a year ago to secure our Tribute 625 "Trev" to the return, our experience with Nathan and Sunrise Holidays has been nothing short of spectacular. Rankers made it easy for us to book with Sunrise Holidays as well as complete the payment process. During our trip we had a couple of questions at the start regarding our camper van and Nathan was immediately available to answer. Like all Sunrise campers ours was a 2017 and very well taken care of. Most of the other camper rental companies which we later found out talking to fellow campers are much older which leads to numerous mechanical issues and as it turns out out unacceptable customer care. Not with Sunrise Holidays. Theirs is a smaller and new fleet which equates to reliability and in in Sunrise Holidays case exceptional customer care as was the case for a couple of questions we had about the van along the way. In 19 days we drove close to 4000 km without an issue except a flat tire in the Milford Sound area. Nathan was available to help sort things out. Our Tribute 625 was a perfect camper for my wife and I. Clean, efficient and well stocked with everything we needed and it drove wonderfully on the highways and mountains. As a note we got 20 miles to the gallon over the course of our trip which I think is exceptional. Our check in and check out with Pania was easy and fun. She is a wonderful face and representative of Sunrise Holidays. Its obvious that Nathan and his staff want you to have a memorable experience with them and in their marvelous country. I highly, highly recommend renting from them. You will not be disappointed, only thrilled with your rental experience. I would do it all over again with Sunrise Holidays. Thank you for a great experience Nathan and staff.

Can’t speak highly enough of Sunrise Campers. From the minute you get a quote to the minute you drop back the campervan after touring NZ, this company is thoroughly professional, friendly and just all round amazing. We had a 2 berth campervan that was just perfect. Very well kitted out with everything you needed and all appliances etc worked perfectly with no problems. The van was very new, super clean and easy to drive and easy to use. Nathan was brilliant at introducing the camper to us in Auckland and was always only a phonecall away if we had any questions.
Top service. It made our holiday in NZ even better.
Thank you Sunrise

Absolutely brilliant company to deal with. We had a few small initial problems but Nathan and Sarah soon sorted them out. The Sunrise team are very helpful with their hints and tips and advice along the way if you need it. Don at the Koha experience is an absolute gem and his suggestions for campsites and places to visit all came up trumps. Thanks to the whole Sunrise team for making our camper van holiday in New Zealand extra special.

Great experience hiring with Sunrise, Nathan and his team especially Sarah in the office were extremely helpful and we really enjoyed our time in our van Marg, Nathan was on hand to deal with any queries that we had while away and on our return to Christchurch we took the van to the airport drop off as we were not sure of parking in central Christchurch we were pleasantly surprised that it was Nathan who was there to meet us along with Mike. The van was very well equipped and very comfortable and with the Solar Panel it was great for the nights that we chose to freedom camp. Sunrise are quite a small company and do not have a huge fleet of vehicles but the level of personal service we received told us that we made the right choice. If I ever make it back to New Zealand I would not hesitate in booking a Sunrise Campervan again.

Just got back from Ruapehu from a Snowboarding / skiing holiday in a Weka Campervan from 'Sunrise Holidays' and it was AWESOME!! We stayed at the Whakapapa Village Campground at a powered site - just plugged in and were cozy-as despite temperatures well blow zero and much snowing!! The Campervan comfortably slept 1 adult and 3 teenagers (could have slept another). Was so warm inside van following a cold day up at the mountain and through some very cold nights. The Weka Campervan was surprisingly easy to drive - I watched the instruction video provided by Sunrise Holidays and was away laughing!! (despite being a short female driver, who doesn't tend to drive large vehicles!). A great family-adventure experience which we are going to repeat NEXT winter! Thanks Sunrise Holidays :)

Great crew, great vehicles and awesome service. Drove a Weka around the North Island surfing and mountain biking. The Weka was smooth on the road and sooo comfortable either through the day taking a break or parked up for the night. Nathan and the rest of the Sunrise team added an extra level of stoke to the whole experience giving us a thorough once over of our ride and a whole bunch of other useful tips and tricks. Legend!
Sunrise are totally unique in the campervan market as they operate at a 'user level', giving a 'family/best mate vibe' making your holiday experience so chilled while providing a seamless and professional service.
Highly recommended.

I booked a campervan from Sunrise for a family of 2 adults and 6 kids. The entire experience was fantastic and fuss-free. The pickup of the campervan was exactly on time; the campervan was clean, new, and everything worked. There was absolutely nothing missing. Drove the campervan everywhere around North Island and there were no problems whatsoever.

Along the way, we had a minor bump with another vehicle. Although there was no damage to the campervan, I was able to get Nathan from Sunrise on the phone immediately. He promised to settle everything with the other driver and he did, without any issues whatsoever.

Frankly speaking, I was reading the reviews of other campervan companies I was a little worried. But honestly, Sunrise.was absolutely perfect. It was a fantastic experience. Would recommend them to anyone visiting NZ.

We travelled the south and north island for 6 weeks in May and June and couldn't be more happy with the 4 berth campervan. The campervan itself is fully equipped and has a solar panel with a lithium house battery, which you will not find in any other rental campervan, so you only have to plug in at a paid campsite once or twice a week, maybe even less if you have enough sunlight, it saves you a ton of money! With the two of us there was more then enough space and bedding sheets and towels are provided. It also has a stove with 4 burners and a small grill which is a big plus if you like to cook and all cooking equipment is present.
Nathan is a great guy and delivers excellent service, he checked on us regularly during our trip if everything was still ok and he provided the perfect 'off the grid' travel guide, NZ Frenzy, which we used the whole trip. We arrived at Christchurch airport where he brought the campervan and the pickup in Auckland was done at the hotel of our final night, so no hassle for us.
We compared 10-15 rental companies and chose Sunrise which was probably the best decision we made during our stay in NZ. Great offer, great service, great campervan, More then recommended!
