We hired one of the 4 berth budget vans for 5 weeks.
We found everyone we dealt with in the company, whether it was by email, phone or in person, to be very helpful and friendly, before, during and at the end of our stay.

The campervan was brilliant- it may have been a little slower up some of the mountains than newer vans, but that didn't matter to us! It was well kitted out with everything from bedding to pots, pans and cutlery etc. and got us everywhere we wanted to go.

We'd thoroughly recommend hiring from Wandekreisen and we intend to do so again, as we'll definitely be back!

I cannot recommend Wendekreisen. We had a stationwagen + roof tent, which was not exactly in perfect condition, but it seemed alright for the road trip to come. Problems arised on the second day, when the car would not start anymore. Support was quick to come over and replace the battery, but they were also quick to place the blame on us by accusing us of leaving the lights on (thus draining the battery), which we didn't do as we drove only by daylight and had no need for the lights.

On the fourth day, the speedo light and rear lights failed, and we needed to take the car to a garage. This forced us to stay one night and nearly had us miss our great walk reservation the following day. Still, the car could not be fixed and needed to be replaced, which cost us even more time, as a promised call-back about the meeting place was not made.

When we wrote an email to complain about the trouble and dared to ask for some kind of compensation, Wendekreisen did not exactly prove open to criticism. The even went as far as making false statements about the car's roof tent, forcing us to take pictures and prove them wrong about the functionality of their own cars (!). This is a no-go in our opinion and left a shady impression.

The company has low-cost offers, which may be alright if the car does not break apart. The support was also okay, but the whole experience left a sour taste somehow.

Wendekreisen Travel responds:

Dear Jonas, we are sorry that you feel this way about us, but this is only your side of the story. I would like to point out, that I personally was dealing with your multiple emails. You demanded a substantial refund after your vehicle return. I checked again and again your claims. Each time I gave you the benefit of the doubt, beside the fact that you made it clear, that you intend to expose us/me on social media if we don't give in. As one can see below, Wendekreisen did not let this get in the way when making the decisions in this case.

1. The car did not start because you left the park light on. Known to you or not, but this was noticed by the mechanic that we sent out to attend to your problem. You refused to accept his findings and instead accused us of sending you out with a faulty battery, which does not make any sense. The charge for the call out like this is NZ$200.00.
2. There was later a problem with the cars dashboard ( you referring to it as speedo light?). We organized a replacement car from our Depot to your location - 2.5 hours away. You called us back before we even had time to prepare the car, get a driver and a way of return for him. We agree that this problem took time of your holiday, hence we noted a compensation of a day worth of hire NZ$115.75
3. Your accusation that we do not know our cars and roof tents is simply false. You claim that you could not detach the cover of your roof tent. Instead you thought it would be right to have a large cover hanging down, flapping in the wind, damaging the car. Common sense would tell anyone that this can not be the intended way of usage, a call to us would have cleared this up in a minute,
Considering the whole,we believe that there was no reason to offer you more refund above not charging you for the call out costs. We are sure that everyone reading can follow our logic of instead refunding you $115.75, we decided to not charge you $200 call out fee.
Kind regards, the Wendekreisen Team

Our van while not fancy served our purpose. If I had to do it again I would have rented a diesel van due to the price of gas vs diesel. I don’t think having a shower in the van helped as I found we either had a shower in the campground or a river or lake to use.

Wendekreisen Travel responds:

Thank you for the review and great advise to travelers. Diesel is cheaper but there can be a bill at the end of a hire. Nearly all rental companies charge the Diesel Road User Fees of about NZ$6 per 100km. Wendenkreisen has these costs included in the daily rate. Kind regards Your Wendekreisen Team

We enjoyed two weeks on the North Island in a VW diesel small motorhome. It was over 10 years old with lots of creeks and groans but mechanically worked great. A little expensive for what we got. The only problem we had was a way to short explanation of how everything worked. We have our own motorhome but this one had a few quirks. We never did get the radio to work. The old refrigerator actually woke us up at night.

Great experience with the Volkswagen T5 from Wendekreisen. Smaller, age-related quirks but nothing that worried us. Vehicle seems to be well maintained and in good condition for its age. Communication with "Wendekreisen" always great. Price-performance ratio is very good. We had two great months and can strongly recommend Wendekreisen as camper rental companie.

We can't express how fantastic Wendekreisen were from our initial enquiry to collecting our campervan and enjoying the most perfect 11 week trip around New Zealand. We hired a Koru 2 Star Walk Through. I would recommend the walkthrough so that if you have rain you do not have to leave the cab. We were a party of 2 and on collection our van was brand new out of the showroom. The king size bed was super comfortable, sheets, pillows, duvet all cleaned and wrapped. 2 gas burner hob, sink, hot and cold water, rotating toilet in shower room. 2 slide out storage cupboards. surround storage cupboards above dining/seating area. Huge storage drawer in the back. TV although we only found 5 places that received a signal in 11 weeks! this did not bother us. Fridge with small ice box that never let us down. 2 kettles, one to use on electric if hooked up, along with toaster, coffee pots etc. All pots, pans, crockery, cutlery. A diesel campervan, excellent mileage, drove beautifully, only slight struggle was driving to the Crown Range Summit, the highest sealed road in NZ, everyone struggled getting up there! Very comfortable front seats with armrests. We chose the comprehensive insurance which came with Sat Nav included. Easy to park anywhere and easy to drive on and off the ferry. One evening in very rainy Milford Sound we had a small leak through the sky light, next day we were passing through TeAnau and the lovely man at the named Caltex garage added mastic within 10 minutes, never had any other issues.
We did a huge amount of research when hiring a campervan, we were so very pleased that we chose Wendekreisen in Auckland. We collected the van here, drove almost 10,000km and returned it here, we could not have been happier. Added bonus is that Wendekreisen do not charge diesel tax, the company pay this, unlimited mileage. We will be back!

We have hired the Koru 2+1 Berth and were fully satisfied with the condition of the campervan and the service of Wendekreisen.
During our trip we detected a hole along the grey water tank for which reason we lost all our water.
After having a call with a very helpful technician he suggested us a workshop where to go to get the tank repaired. The costs have been fully absorbed by Wendekreisen.
We were very happy with the great support and can recommend Wendekreisen for 100%. Great service, faire prices and good insurance model.
