We knew beforehand that the 4-berth campervan we would get would be 2006 or newer. It turned out to be actually from 2006 with 500.000 kms on the clock, we were a little disappointed. A 12 year old mattress is a bit worn out... And a 2006 diesel engine is a bit loud... To be fair: the price we paid was not so high, so perhaps we got what we paid for...

Dear Jan-Paul, thank you for your feedback. It is unfortunate to hear that you were a little disappointed in our 4-berth Motor-home. We replace the mattresses and covers every 5 years and use Dunlop and Warwick materials to ensure good quality. We have now ordered your vehicle to be reviewed to replace worn components if necessary. We are currently developing a new 4 berth model to satisfy those customers seeking a newer vehicles at a higher rental cost by summer 2019. Best Regards Your Wendekreisen Team.

BEWARE RIP OFF!!
Was für eine Enttäuschung!
Nach einer guten Kommunikation von Deutschland aus und schnellen Antworten auf Fragen müssen wir
leider ein schlechtes Kommentar zur Rückgabe unseres Campers abgeben.Wir bekamen bei der Übergabe einen schon etwas in die Jahre gekommen Camper mit deutlichen Kratzer und Gebrauchsspuren Außen wie Innen. Das hat uns nicht weiter gestört, da wir uns vorher informiert hatten und wussten, dass der Camper bis zu 10 Jahre alt sein kann. Sicherheitshalber haben wir dennoch die teuerste und umfassendste Versicherung abgeschlossen, die sie anbieten.Die Dame bei der Übergabe notierte die größten Kratzer und Dellen und meinte sie wären da nicht so genau und "wir sollten uns keine Sorgen machen,
schließlich sind wir ja voll versichert". Während unserere 4 wöchigen Rundreise bemerkten wir, dass die Handbremse nicht einwandfrei funktionierte, ebenso eine Seite des Gasherdes sowie ein Lautsprecher der Stereoanlage (was bei einer langen Reise mit einem kleinen Kind durchaus von Nachteil ist). Auch das haben wir hingenommen und einen völlig gereinigten Camper zurückgegeben.
Als es um die Abnahme des Campers ging, wurden wir plötzlich auf eine Delle auf der Beifahrertür-Seite aufmerksam gemacht.
Wir können uns nicht erklären wie diese rein gekommen sein soll, zumal sie nur bei ganz genauer Betrachtung auffällt und keinerlei Kratzer zu sehen sind. Wir sind uns sicher, dass sie bei der Übergabe schon drin war, haben aber der Dame vertraut, das nur die gröbsten Fehler notiert werden. Dieses Vertrauen in Ihre Mitarbeiter und Ihre Firma wurde stark enttäuscht. Wir wurden nun mit dem Kommentar "Es sind ja nur zusätzlich 250Nz$" zur Kasse bebeten und haben den sehr starken Eindruck, dass hier noch einmal schnell Geld auf Kosten der Camper-Mieter
gemacht wird. Da man schließlich seinen Flug erreichen muss, steht man unter zeitlichem Druck und kann sich deswegen kaum auf eine ausführliche Diskusion einlassen. Wir sind sehr enttäuscht!!

Dear Family2018, thank you for your feedback in German. Family 2018 states that the Koru 2+1 campervan they hired had a few scratches, that the handbrake did not work as best as possible, that one side of the gas stove would not ignite and that one speaker did not work. They were very dissatisfied that on drop off, a dent was found in the passenger door which was charged at the insurance excess of $250. They now feel that Wendekreisen wanted to make an additional 'quick' buck at the end of their hire.

Firstly, we apologise if our campervan did not meet your expectations. We would like to mention that Family2018 did not make contact with us throughout the duration of their rental. It is difficult to attend shortcomings if we are not being made aware of them and we supply a freephone number as well as a NZ SIM card for these purposes. Our Koru 2+1 vehicles are well serviced and pre-hire-checked with 6-monthly certificate of fitness inspections both of which include the handbrake system. We would have liked to be given the opportunity to repair any shortcomings including those with the cooker ignition and the radio speaker. Regarding the dent in the passenger door, you have completed and signed a damage report at collection. At the time of drop off, we presented to you with 2 X damage reports of previous customers which showed no damage in that area. However, we are now reviewing your case again to ensure any possibility of oversight is eliminated. Our customer services staff will contact you via email. It is never our intend to charge for damages you did not cause. Kind Regards Your Wendekreisen Team

I was expecting to be able to shower in the campervan and thus do a lot of freedom camping. However, I discovered that my fresh water system had a leak in it, and as a result I was unable to use the shower, and only had enough water for cooking and cleaning up. This meant I had to spend more time in camp grounds adding to my costs. Other than that the van was good.

Just spent 3 weeks touring north and south island in Wendekreisen camper. fantastic experience. Camper was spotlessly clean on collection, worked perfectly and was a pleasure to live with - shame we had to give it back. Staff were very helpful with advise before the trip, and made collection and drop off easy. Defo recommended, and would use again tomorrow if we could. Thanks. Pete & Heidi

Have hired campers before through big companies that really don’t give a damn.
Finally a company that gives complete personal service. From when I booked the emails and questions I asked were acted upon immediately. The staff at Christchurch depot were thorough when we arrived. Bridget and Camden were fantastic. We had no issues apart from our Tom Tom being stuck in German language.
I’ll be recommending you guys to Aussies

A very positive experience, and when we are coming back to NZ, we are likely to use your company again
Plusses:
Van drove well, without any issues
Engine was frugal with getting 10 km or much more, out of one liter of diesel
LPG gas heater was only used twice for an hour, but worked well
Fridge worked very well
Hot water system worked well, and kept water hot until next morning
When not running the engine, there was enough charge in the batteries for 48 hours, still using the fridge but using lights frugally
Shower and toilet worked well
Bed was comfortable, duvet was warm
Your staff (Arti) at the Auckland depot was very helpful

Undetermined:
We tried to use the TV once, but could not receive any stations, however that was not an issue for us
We never tried the plug-in an external power lead
We have not tried the outside table and chairs, but I must say the chairs didn’t look too comfy
We never had to use the tools, fire-extinguisher, first aid kit

Other:
I am sure you realise that standing room in those vans (LVD80) is minimal. I guess that if you were renting this out to a couple that would weigh more than 125 kg each, then this van would not be big enough. Just wondering…….:)

Reviewed 3 months ago

Wendekreisen Travel responds:

Dear Lesley, thank you for leaving a very positive review. This is greatly appreciated. The standing room in our LDVs is 1.85m, tall enough for most and limited by the size of the vehicle. The TV requires tuning in each location. We agree the tables and chairs are not the most comfortable but practical in their application. They also last for a very long time (aluminium frame) and are manufactured by special needs people as part of a charity organisation here in New Zealand. The tables and chairs therefore support a local charity organisation and reduce plastic waste which is great for the environment. Alternative folding chairs last 1-2 hires and we decided to abolish them after discarding container loads of chairs after minimal use. Thank you again and all the best...Your Wendekreisen Team.

Our van was almost brand new, it drove perfect and had lots of power. We averaged 9.5 L/100km over 2300kms. Staff were helpful and the whole pickup/drop off experience went smooth and quick. Only reason I'm not rating higher is because I didn't like the way the interior is set up.
