We hired the four berth camper for 3 of us on a 10 day South Island whirlwind trip. Was great having a self contained transport. Was easy to drive. Managed to use own bedding etc as we could pick up camper in hometown. We found everything comfy and user friendly. The top 10's we stayed at, were great. The scenery was gorgeous. We had a lot of laughs and fun. Hamish was really helpful.

We hired a motor home off peak for 5 nights to travel around Nelson / Marlborough / Abel Tasman. Great service , Hamish extremely helpful & as a 1st time using a motor home we picked up all the practicalities pretty well. Excellent way to see the country and the kids just loved the adventure of it (as did we !) It was extremely well equipped & would definitely recommend / use Travel NZ again.

We hired a 4 berth camper van from Travel NZ Motorhomes. Hamish was very helpful and obliging. The camper van was great - its a great way to see NZ. We are planning another camper van holiday next year using Travel NZ Motorhomes.
We had a wonderful holiday travelling the South Island in our 4 berth camper van hired from TravelNZ. I have recommended others to this business and will continue to do so. We are very much looking forward to hiring another camper from this company next year when we plan to tour the North Island.
First time motor home renters in NZ we were really well looked after with the personal touch. Lots of info provided at handover and in documentation, demoed too. Everything worked, clean, comfortable and we were nice and warm even in winter - recommend some hot water bottles to make sure extra toasty in the back. Everything you need to cook provided, even own wifi. Mercedes 6 berther length took some getting used to at first, (it's a luxury portakabin on wheels), but easy to drive once into it and you learn to take more time maneuvering in campgrounds and side streets - having a 'spotter' outside recommended, but it can turn in a surprisingly tight radius, and quite happy at 90km/h on the open road, even overtaking a few lorries up the big hills! Having full 3 point seat belts on all 6 seats and tiptronic gear shift to take pressure off brakes going down big hills re-assuring, and daughter loved having her own 'escape pod' bed above the front seats. Recommended for a kiwi business doing it right....
We very much enjoyed the two trips we took with vehicles from Travel NZ Motorhomes. Hamish was friendly, helpful and flexible in fitting the hire to our needs. Highly recommend.
Rented a 4-birth Mercedes for 66 days. Not the newest but good and comfortable and much more affordable compared to the 'big' rental companies. During our long trip we had a few minor issues with the van which were dealt with very swiftly.
All in all very satisfied with campervan and service and will definitely rent again from Hamish next time.
Great communication from Hamish throughout. Collection & drop off our campervan was smooth & efficient. We had a wonderful 2 months in New Zealand & were supported well throughout our trip. The SATNAV & road map was invaluable to us.
We area family of 5 (with 5 bicycles we brought with us from Australia) and we booked the 6 berth camper for a new years holiday. We had a fab time doing a loop around the South Island including the Alps2Ocean ride (it's downhill- mostly).
Travel NZ Motorhomes were friendly and flexible, met us at the airport with instructions and help; stored our bike boxes for re-use on the plane back to Aus, and the van didn't miss a beat.
What more can you ask for? Highly recommended.
You couldn't fault our experience with Travel NZ Motorhomes. Hamish really did save us when, in the height of the summer season we urgently needed a campervan due to our original one from another company breaking down. He was great at keeping us informed and was very accommodating and went above and beyond to help. He also gave us lots of tips for the remainder of our trip. Great to support a family run business, I just wish we had done that in the first place.

This was our first NZ MOTORHOME experience. We loved it. We picked this company because we liked the motorhome specification and the rental rates were very competitive. Our booking, collection and drop-off procedures were easy and reliable. Hamish is a very amiable and helpful guy, who does all he can to make your motorhome experience a success. We’d book another holiday with this company if we return to South Island NZ.
We holidayed with family in New Plymouth and made a rather late decision to hire a camper and take our daughter and two grandkids on a short trip in the north of the South Island. Thanks to Heidi, a six-berth Merc was sourced at NZ Motorhomes. The entire experience from the willingness of Hamish and Heidi to accommodate our changing pick-up needs, to the clear and quick walk-through of the vehicle’s workings, to the four nights in beautiful sites in Tahunanui and Tukurua — even the Takaka Hill was fun — I highly recommend NZ Motorhomes for service and friendliness. On our return to South Africa, the road-tax bill of NZD 18.00 came through, and for some reason I couldn’t transfer the ZAR amount without blocking my credit card. Hamish even settled the charge. (I will make another plan to get the amount to him!) This was a wonderful and memorable Kiwi experience. We look forward to getting over there again and doing something more extensive. When we do, NZ Motorhomes will be the company we work with! Thanks all!
We were first time camper vaners so we had no idea what to expect. We dealt with Hamish via email and he was always prompt and helpful with his replies. Which gave us confidence that we had chosen well. We arrived in Auckland to pick the CV up and that took a matter of minutes. Then we were on our way. The CV was more than adequate for our needs and didn’t let us down once. Off hire was equally as easy in Christchurch. Had a fabulous time in NZ and the camper van played its part in helping to achieve that. Would not hesitate in recommending Travel NZ.
