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!

Everything was good!
A tip: We had to use our own telephons gps, so it should be much better if the camper had mobile roadband. We are very pleased with Natan, who helpt us with the fridge.

Due to a misunderstanding in the booking our familty stood without a campervan on arrival in NZ just a few days before Christmas, the ultimate high season of high seasons!

Numerous calls to most of rental companies in NZ without luck! Then I got in touch with Sunrise Holidays and within few hours our long time time planned holiday was possible despite the booking issue!

My guess is that their customer service is unmatched in NZ! Nathan and his team really made a difference for our family :-)

During a trip to New Zealand my girlfriend and I rented a campervan from Sunrise Holidays out of Christchurch. The experience was amazing and Sunrise had a lot to do with that. The owner Nathan picked us up from the airport in our campervan, gave us a run down of anything and everything we would need to know about the campervan, and had us practice driving with him. Nathan was extremely helpful, answered all of our questions, and made sure we were totally comfortable before leaving us. He even gave us a few tips on what to do while we were out exploring the South Island, and told us about a great weather forecasting site which definitely saved us from being stuck in rain a few times. The campervan itself was very clean and worked great. We had no issues with it whatsoever, definitely everything we expected and more. When the unfortunate time of our trip ended came, Nathan even came to our hotel in Christchurch to pick the campervan up from us.

Overall, Sunrise Holidays really makes you feel welcome and as part of their family, you can tell they put a lot of effort into the care and maintenance of their campervans and really care about each individual customer.

Great Team for a great holiday; all was perfect and on time. The Sunrise Team has been responsive, easy going and fully supporting us from the beginning to the end! The campervan was brand new (just 37000 km) and we drove for 4000 km without any problem. Thank you Friends, if there will be a next time in NZ, for sure it will be with you! Take care!

We are from GERMANY and did our trip in November 2018 for 32 days from Auckland to Christchurch with our Sunrise Holidays Campervan "Billy", which is a "Sunrise Piwakawaka 669" (2+1 Berth auto-trail Tribute 669 (Early 2018)").
-First- of all I have to say that this experience was incredible for us and Sunrise Holidays and our beloved "Billy" make it happen!! Thank yopu for this!!
-Second- All of the people (Nathan,Sarah,Ross,...) we have contact with were friendly and helpful. All question an worries were answered an solved quickly and to our happiness!
-Third- This was our first journey to New Zealand, in a Campervan and on the left side of the road so we were very excited, if everything would work well.
-Number4- The Pickup good but we did not have the right number to contact the Driver. So I have to make some calls but all the staff were calm and helpful. And with a little delay we got our pickup directly with our Campervan "Billy", unfortunately I can not remember the name of the girl who picked us up. But it was very nice! She take us away from the airport and after a few minutes we changed seats so I have to drive, the very first time! But it was great with here assistance!
-Number5- We make around 5800km´s and we got no problems with Billy, he was a reliable fellow!
-Number6- Everything was clean and tidy! Somedays later after the Campervan handover we checked that there were no showerhead and hose. This was no problem for us, I think when we checked it at the pickup-day, no problem. We did not need the shower, but the small toilet and sink were perfect for freedom-camping and scenic campground with only droptoilets and sandfly-attacks.
-Number7- For me it was difficult to empty the greywater-tank, but I think this was due to our little experiences with campers.
-Number8- The dimensions, the automatic transmission and the Cruise Control feature of Billy were perfect an comfortable and I would recommend this to everyone!..No.more.space.. :-(

The people are amazingly helpful! We were so lucky to rent our campervan through Sunrise Holiday. It was our first time camping in a campervan so as newbies, we had a couple of episodes, but Nathan, Ross and Sarah helped us in every way possible. When we were dropping off the van, Pania saw we had a lot of luggages, she then arranged a drop-off to our hotel which was huge help! Definitely recommend Sunrise Holiday to anyone who wants to have an amazing road trip in NZ!

We rented from NZ Sunrise Holidays, picked up and dropped off at Christchurch and the overall experience was great, we could not be more pleased!

This is the first time we drove a campervan and we rented a 4 Berth Takapu 720 for 16 days. We were not familiar with the campervan, so when the first time we tried to charge the power for the campervan at the power campsite and it was after 20.30 hours, we text Nathan for assistance and he responded Immediately. I would definitely say that their service both before and during the trip exceeded expectation.

We were lucky to get a brand new campervan and despite traveling in summer (end November to mid December), most of the days were still cold as it rained a lot but we were warm in the van due to the warm blankets and the heater. The double bed can be converted from the two sofas at the back of the van and it was so convenient and very comfortable. The double bed above the driver seat is comfortable but more suitable for people with smaller built or children. we did not use the third bed at the dining area, as the other two beds are good enough for family of 4. We were also provided with towels and the van is well equipped with all the cooking utensils, oven, stove top and microwave and my wife could not be more please as she can cook even when we parked at non-power sites as the van has the solar panel and gas tank and could take hot shower. We only needed to look for a power sites when we need to charge our laptop, camera or microwave. We had a safe and enjoyable journey and the campervan is great and powerful enough to bring us up many steep roads.

We like to thank Nathan, Sarah and Ross to make our 16 days trip in New Zealand a memorable experience!

Thank you for this amazing campervan experience! We are a small family of 3 and travelled with our 8 months year old baby for one month with the Sunrise Weka. The interior is beautifully made and there is all you need for travelling, cooking & relaxing in the evening. The overall customer service experience is very good and useful, which was also the reason why we choose you instead of going with a bigger company. It was more personal & local!
We also spent 2 nights at the Koha Campsite with Don, which was one of the highlights of our trip. The place is very peaceful and beautiful, and you can enjoy some good conversations with Don about organic planting and stories about his travels.
There is no publicity on the Campervans which make you feel very local :-)
We'll be back one day and can only recommend Sunrise Holidays to any visitors coming from abroad and looking for the real Kiwi experience!

The campervan , a Piwakawaka was almost new and met our requirements perfectly. The bed was large and comfortable, cooker was good, toilet and shower good (we actually used the shower a couple of times!). The van was easy to drive and Sunrise were the epitomy of relaxed easy going New Zealanders, wonderful. No pressure, nothing like that. I would recommend them to anybody.

Just returned from our second 2 month visit to NZ in a Sunrise LDV campervan. Amazing time, as before, and great service all the way through from start to finish from the Sunrise team. The van was compact, well equipped and very comfortable and we loved the new set up with the walk through rear door arrangement. Didn’t use the side door at all! Meant we could just park up and step right out beside the beach or lakeside. Plenty of storage and so many extras included that other companies charge for on top. And the brilliant solar panel meant that we didn’t need to hook up for power once, hence the ability to freedom camp wherever the road took us (we didn’t have an itinerary!). Good to meet Don this time round in Motueka and enjoy his beautiful site ... and his company ... for a couple of nights. Nathan was always at the end of the phone to sort out any queries and Sarah was so efficient in always getting back to us promptly. Good to meet Ross again too in Christchurch for a smooth drop off. Thank you to the whole team for once again making our tour of NZ so special and hassle free - over 6000 km of trouble free motoring and enjoyed every moment. We have recommended Sunrise to so many people we have met, many of whom have had poor service from other rental companies, and it would be the only company we would consider using if we were fortunate enough to be able to return again.
