We were delighted by this first camping car experience in New Zealand! At the time of booking, Hamish answered all our technical questions quickly and made the booking process easy and flexible. The website is perfect, and we were happy to find out that the price included many basic things we needed. Everything from the pick-up at the airport, explanations about the camping car and where is the nearest grocery was made on a professional and friendly way. All this put together, this 9 days road trip was surely the top highlight of our stay in beautiful New Zealand!

I couldn't be happier with our experience with Travel NZ Motorhomes. Hamish was amazing in supporting a charity run I was doing with a motorhome. The motorhome, service, info provided and experience were second to none and we loved our time travelling in the motorhome which was spacious, with everything we needed and easy to drive.

I would 100% recommend Travel NZ Motorhomes for the service, the quality of the (unmarked!) vehicles and the experience you will have travelling this beautiful country with one of their motorhomes.

We had a great time driving through the South Island for 5 weeks with the motorhome from Travel NZ Motorhome. And whenever we had an issue, the owner was incredibly helpful and responsible for getting it fixed. We can certainly recommend them!

Hamish made us feel welcome and at home even before we arrived in country. He was kind, communicative, a wealth of information and completely understanding when hiccups arose. Our 4 berth motorhome, dubbed Bertha, was our safe haven and harbor for the month we traveled through the South and North Islands. She was roomy, reliable, easy to drive, clean and it was apparent how well Hamish and the team took care of her throughout the years. If you appreciate being on a first name basis with the company representative and able to direct message with questions throughout your travel than Travel New Zealand is your motorhome company. If we could give Travel New Zealand a higher rank than 10 - we would!

Great site for getting quotes for Motorhomes as you enter your details and then a variety of companies email you with their quotes. Made it very easy to gather this data. The other information sent by Rankers was very supportive for planning a trip in terms of Holiday parks, Free camping and many other free things to do. Great portal to many other things.

Booking with Travel NZ was super simple, Hamish kept the process straight forward. Rather than us hunting to pick up the van, Hamish picked us up from the hotel and completed handover quickly but with everything well explained. We can not understand why anyone using these types of vans would stay in caravan parks, being off grid meant we had plenty of options of places to stay (the rankers app is fantastic). The van is totally set up for freedom camping, there was nothing more that we would have wanted for the 2 weeks. We travelled in a 6 birth as a family of 4 - 2 adults and 2 older teens, the van gave up enough space to really enjoy the trip. We found the large van simple to drive and easy to park. We've recommended Travel NZ already to our friends and will contact Hamish in a heartbeat if we need a van for the South Island again

We hired a camper van on a short notice Hamish did his upmost to arrange a suitable camper for us. We had a great time everything went well and had no problems at all. We had a booklet with all the technical information and although I thought it was a lot of fuss with a camper it turned out very easy. I would definitely recommend NZ. Hamish is a hardworking, honest and easy going guy with great campers.

Honest, hospitable and reliable family business. Hamish and his wife gave us a warm welcome the first night we stayed at their bnb. Then for the next 30 days we discovered the South Island in one of their 4-berth motor homes. If you rent a motor home for this long, chances are you are going to have some smaller or bigger issues at one point or the other. Hamish was always ready to help whenever we needed him. We freedom camped about 80 % of the nights which was great with the solar panel that was powerful enough to charge our phones and laptops autonomously. We also liked that our camper was not branded like all of the big companies do so that we were not immediately identified as tourists everywhere we went.

Travel NZ Motorhomes was the best motorhome rental service I've used so far. I was picked up from the airport and shown everything I needed to know for my trip. Returning the motorhome was simple and quick. And I was dropped off at the airport with plenty of time. I want to thank Hamish and the team for making my trip to Nelson such a great experience. I recommend this business and I will definitely use them again in the future. A+

Excellent communication and customer service from the initial enquiry to the completion of our holiday hire. Nelson is a fantastic start and end point.
We have had quite a few motor home holidays around NZ over the years and our holiday booked through Travel NZ Motorhomes ranks very high.
Highly recommend booking with Travel NZ Motorhomes and definitely rent the BBQ & outdoor table/chairs we used ours daily.
Many thanks to Hamish.

Despite frequent reminders from my wife I, apparently, "left it a bit late" to book a camper. After a lot of toing and froing with the larger companies I ended up having an email conversation with Hamish. He was able to go out on a limb and find a van for us. We arrived in New Zealand and stayed in Wellington for a couple of days before flying to Nelson to pick up the van. Hamish met us at the airport and we picked up the van from Travel NZ yard. Sadly, February 2019 saw wildfires in the Nelson area and closed highways meant we had to change our original itinerary. Hamish helped us redraw our plans and we set off on a memorable three week tour. We had a couple of issues with the van but Hamish was able to sort these out quickly and we were on our way again. Hamish is a can do kind of guy who is helpful and friendly. We dropped the van back and were then taken to the bus station for our ride back to Picton and the inter islander ferry. I am sitting here back in London with some fantastic memories. wouldn't hesitate to recommend NZ Motorhomes to any one who is planning a trip of a lifetime.
