Friendly staff, good communication and accomodating changes in dates due to Covid-19. Would highly recommend them and the camper vans they offer :)
My sister and I rented a sleepervan for a week in Nelson and it was perfect! Trusty vehicle for going on gravel roads too and kitted out with almost everything you need! Excellent price too! Our pick-up/drop-off guy (Alan) made everything super easy and was happy to give us many recommendations for best places to visit in Nelson! Would definitely rent a camper with them again!

Camperco’s hi-top van was perfect for our 6week tour of the South Island. The compact kitchen with fridge was well-equipped and the heater very useful for colder nights. We had no problems with the van which ran smoothly the whole time. It was practical, comfortable and a good price. Ross and the Camperco team did us proud and we would book with them again.
Great service using camper co with very friendly, helpful staff who responded quickly to all questions. We picked up our van in Picton and dropped it off in Queenstown, after 11 days of exploring, seeing the sights, freedom camping and visiting friends. Would highly recommend Camper Co and the pricing is the fairest in the industry.
Highly recommend. I was very happy with the service, and would definitely recommend using Camperco. Service great, went above and beyond. I wanted to upgrade at last minute, not a problem. I left something behind and they went out of their way to return to me.
We hired a Camperco Campervan for our week long adventure down the west coast and it was perfect! We loved the comfort of having our own space while being able to travel. The Camperco had everything we needed and the great heater made it even more enjoyable.
Would definitely recommend Camperco for all of your campervan needs! :)
Staff very obliging to deal with. Be sure to give your messages to everyone concerned. A couple of our express requests were overlooked, but in all, a good experience. Van drive well, and comfortable.
I had a very enjoyable holiday in the motorhome. It was well equipped with everything I needed. It was the first time I’ve hired a motor home and found your company made the process simple. The pickup and drop off went smoothly. Mike was great explaining all l needed to know in regards to the operation of the van and l felt confident that he would be available if l had problems (which thankfully l didn’t).
Great experience dealing with camper co. The van was well equipped with everything I needed for a comfortable trip around the south. Customer service and communication was excellent! Definitely recommend 👍
Awesome. My first van renting experiance amd it was excellent. The van had everything we needed (kitchen + utensils, fridge and a comfortable bed). I 100% recommend going for a tour with one of Camperco's vans!
I booked a van in January 2020 for a month (Pick-up in Christchurch and the drop-off in Auckland).
We were in contact with Ross. He answered to all our questions really quickly and gave us some advice to help us on your journey around NZ.
The van we had was in really great condition, nice to drive and live in.
I will find in it all the things you need and more.
Everything with this company was perfect. Great communication, great vehicle and great owners.
highly recommend this company to any person that want to make sure they gonna have a great experience in a van in NZ.
My partner and I rented the Estima for a week and it was all that we could have hoped for! It was so well built and came with everything we needed. The bed was easy to assemble, the kitchen was compact, all of the little details were impressive. The customer service was great as well- so nice dealing with a local company!! I would definitely rent again and recommend to friends. Thanks guys!!

My husband and i could not have been happier with our interaction with Ross and Nick at Camperco. Theirs is the kind of customer service that goes well beyond what one dares to expect anymore. Delighted, double thumbs up from us both.
I had a great experience with CamperCo renting for two weeks this summer. They responded quickly to my inquiries and were very professional the whole time. Pick up and drop off of the van was straightforward and quick, and I'd definitely recommend them to others looking to rent a van!
My partner and myself hired the sleepervan for 2 weeks and it was ideal! It had everything we needed and was super handy to drive in comparison to a bigger campervan. The van was so much fun and brilliant to have the freedom to go anywhere and try to follow the unpredictable good weather in New Zealand! The bed was easy to assemble and the van was always cosy and warm at night. There was a fridge which was great and the van had an awning too which acted as a little extension in addition to shade from the sun and rain! Ross and Mike were also brilliant to deal with. Super helpful, friendly and quick at responding. Thanks so much guys for an amazing road trip!
Highly recommended, I'll definitely be booking with Camperco again. Everything ran like clockwork with the rental and the camper itself was exactly what I needed. Mike and Ross are both great to deal with and are friendly and accomodating. I look forward to my next adventure in a Camperco camper. Thanks guys! Keep up the great work.
We found CamperCo great to deal with. We had to cancel our first booking due to Covid & they refunded us in full. We rebooked & the motorhome we had was great. It was clean & tidy & just a great size for the 2 of us. We had a great time & the guys at CamperCo were only too happy to help over the phone if we came across something we could not get to work due to us being first time users. I really recommend CamperCo if you are looking at hiring a motorhome.
What made me opt for CamperCo wasn't just the great quote they offered me. It mainly was the way they replied to that very first email and how that profoundly differed from the ones received from other rental companies. It showed care, interest in offering me the best experience possible and, sure enough, I wasn't let down. Yes, there may have been some minor glitches with the car and the appliances it came with, but the ongoing assistance they provided me with made anyway for sunch an UNFORGETTABLE experience. For any concern, accident, question Ross would get back very quickly making me feel utterly safe. He once even encouraged me to take on a gravel road and have fun (I mean... Amazing!). The sleepervan has been such a good companion, taking me anywhere I wanted to get without ever complaining and the self-contained experience itself is something I highly recommend to anyone. Thank you Ross, thank you CamperCo.
I can absolutely recommend this rental.
Before we travelled to New Zealand we already had contact with Ross from CamperCo. and he was always extremely helpful and answered all our questions immediately. (and there were a lot 😉 )
When we arrived in New Zealand the transfer to the CamperCo site was very easy because Ross picked us up from Christchurch airport.
Ross also took a lot of time to explain all the details of the campervan to us and even looked at our route with us to give us tips.
Also the drop off of the camper was no problem at all and was perfectly prepared.
If I get another chance to visit New Zealand again, I will definitely rent a camper from CamperCo again.
Great camper, clean with everything you need (except a coffee pot!). Staff very friendly and easy to communicate with. Also no transfer charge to pick the camper up in Picton which is fantastic!
Our experience with CamperCo was excellent and we have nothing to complain about! Starting with the booking, the communication with the guys was easy and nice and they were so helpful and tried to realize all our wishes and ideas. When we arrived in NZ, we were picked up from the airport without any problems and immediately felt comfortable. Ross took a lot of time to explain the van in detail to us as camper newcomers. He also took time to give us many tips about our route and to draw his recommendations on a map. The camper itself was very well equipped and we did not miss anything. Also the return was very easy and without problems. We had a great time and would definetely book there again at any time and can only recommend CamperCo!
That was our first time renting out a campervan.Ross and Nick were so patient in dealing with us.The campervan so neat and tidy.We would definitly go back to them.
Thank you for such an amazing campervan experience, it was a dream to live in for 2 weeks. Pick up was easy and the van was nice and clean and pretty comfortable too. The new heaters meant we weren't cold once. It was the best way to get around the South Island for sure. I love the fact the campervan had
Ross and Nick were a pleasure to work with, extremely good communication. I would highly recommend CamperCo.
We had a wonderful time in NZ and this was also thanks to Ross and Camperco. We rented the Hiace hitop camper. We were with two and this camper was perfect in size. A lot of storage and the bed was bigger than we thought it would be :-) The pots and pans and cutlery in the camper was of very high quality, and the camper in general was very clean. Ross was always available, so when we asked questions, we almost immediately got answers and the help we needed. We would recommend Camperco in a heartbeat!
Very professional organisation.
Van as in the offer.
We chose Camperco because they were not a huge corporate company where on previous occasions we experienced hidden costs(camp chairs & tables etc) particularly with very expensive excess insurance eg we had already bought our own excess insurance but were given the hard sell to buy theirs as well.
Camperco offer a very good value excess insurance, particularly if the hire is for a long period of time .
We wanted cover that included driving on unsurfaced roads which very few companies allow, Camperco do this . Their vans do not have their logo painted on it so you are not a advertising board all the time. This also means that you get more respect from other drivers as they assume that you are a Kiwi.
The van was well equipped, and in generally good condition. We did experience a couple of minor problems, but these were sorted in super swift time, with minimal disruption to our holiday. Ross dealt with our queries quickly and was very helpful. All in all a great experience, and we have no hesitation in recomending them.
Great company, do not hesitate to book! They are personal and very helpfull. Always ready when you are on the road. The campervan was solid and clean, perfect to explore NZ. Even in times of (corona)crisis they stay flexible and try to help you get home!
Ross was very helpful and was readily available to help with any of our needs. He picked us up at our hotel and returned us there as well. Communication was great and there were no hidden charges.
The campervan itself was older, but functional. If we had to do it over, we would opt for a newer and larger van, as when the couch was made into a bed, there was only room for one person to stand in the “kitchen” area. During our trip, it was quite rainy so we had to spend more time in the campervan than we expected. Also, some of the nights were quite cold, and there was no heater - something for future campers to keep in mind!
The sleepervan we rented was absolutely perfect for our needs! There is everything you need for cooking (including all dishes). The bed was comfortable and we had a thick blanket, so it was never too cold during the night. The car went well during the whole time and there was enough space for our stuff (also under the bed). The staff was always friendly and very helpful. I would definitely rent a van from camperco again!
We highly recommend CamperCo!!!
We spent the past two months touring New Zealand with a campervan from CamperCo and LOVED it! :) Good size campervan with all the equipment you need, comfortable bed, large fridge to stock up on food and we liked the fact you can cook inside because on a windy and wet day it's just a bit more comfortable ;)
Interaction with CamperCo was great! We had a few questions before booking and the team was always available. Full price transparency, pick up and drop off was super easy and throughout the trip Ross was our contact person. We had one minor issue with the van and we got immediate help. Thanks Ross! :)
Our last days of the trip were heavily impacted by the corona virus situation. Ross helped us personally to find solutions and was really flexible. We know from other travellers that they did not all receive help from their rental companies.
If we visit New Zealand again we will book with CamperCo!
A camper van allowed us to experience many of the out of the ways places in beautiful New Zealand.
Can’t recommend this company enough. Would definitely use if coming back to New Zealand. Vehicle was comfortable and. clean. The pick up/drop off process was smooth and easy, and they were ready to help with any issue while I was there. Prices were excellent. Overall great experience. Wonderful local company.
Trying to find the right Campervan is a gruelling task: what’s the best size; what’s going to be comfortable; what’s decent value... before long, you end up in a tailspin of confusion and doubt, and then feel altogether overwhelmed.
We were SO relieved we booked with CamperCo. Ross and his team are absolutely wonderful, personable and brilliant at their work.
Their vans are expertly tailored to maximise space - a high top so you can comfortably stand when changing or cooking, and yet compact enough when you want to park or steer those demanding curves on NZ’s epic scenic drives.
On top of this, the price - probably the best we found given the quality of the vehicles, which also included tent, picnic table and chairs, sat nav. For a little extra we also purchased the collision cover which gave us that extra confidence.
All round - a brilliant experience. When we return to NZ, we know who we’re booking with.
We really enjoyed our 3 week trip on the South Island in the Toyota Estima! The vehicle was the perfect size for the two of us with a comfy bed, lots of space underneath for our bags and a very good kitchen set up in the back. The smaller size of the vehicle was great for some of the twistier NZ roads and everything worked very well for the 3 weeks. It was also nice to have a vehicle without any branding and to rent from a friendly company with excellent customer service. Would definitely recommend and use again. Thank you!
Estima Sleepervan for 3 weeks in North Island in Feb.
Had a great time, the vehicle was comfortable to drive and everything worked. The roads can be challenging but the brakes, steering, suspension, tyres etc were all good. The main improvement that could be made would be a screened ventilation method as we found mozzies an issue, and it gets hot and stuffy if you shut everything tight. Would certainly use CamperCo again.
CamperCo was a great company to work with. The campervan worked very well for us.
The campervan was working fine, for three people a bit small. It was equipped with everything we need. It was great to have 3 seats in the front. Pickup and dropoff in Picton was perfect.
Really impressed with CamperCo. The camper van was really clean and well equipped. We got a crack in our windscreen and it was sorted really quickly by Ross with minimum disruption to our holiday. They are also one of the few companies that let you pick up in Queenstown for a little bit extra. Would definitely use them again if we return and would recommend them to others.
Fantastic service from this company. Ross is an incredibly friendly, helpful guy. The high top van was in good condition and had no problems with anything for a 3 week hire, bed was very comfy, fridge was large and worked well, interior was well designed use of space.Can fit 3 people with an additional bed in roof, which we had for a few nights and it didnt feel like too much of a squeeze.
Good value for money and would definintely recommend.
Great friendly service and great campervan!
CamperCo was the perfect choice for our 10-day road trip around the South Island, we were 100% happy with this company and the folks that run it. We hired one of their Hiace Campervans, and its features were perfect for my husband and I - he's 6ft2in so we were hoping to find a smaller sized campervan that he could still stand up in and (somewhat) fit in the bed!
We also chose this van from CamperCo because it had a mini-fridge, interior kitchen (rather than out the back), and no logos/branding all over it. We could enjoy our trip without feeling like we really stuck out as tourists, and we could look out the back and enjoy the view. The size of the vehicle was really manageable for driving unfamiliar roads (we're from the US - opposite lane driving). The battery that runs the fridge (and also has 2 USB ports for charging) is solar-charged as well as from the engine, and it never failed us. The navigation system provided worked nearly flawlessly. The bed was not incredibly comfortable, but you're sleeping in a van...not in a real bed, so that comes with the territory and we didn't mind. I believe we had one of their slightly older outfitted vans, so I can only imagine the more updated ones would be really great! The folks at CamperCo have been fine-tuning the layout and features of these Hiace's, and have put careful thought into creating a simple and useful design.
We were happy to support a small company, run locally, rather than a big chain that would be impersonal. Also, on their website it shows that they donate towards CoolEarth, which combats rainforest deforestation, sweet! Ross was easy to communicate with, super friendly and helpful - he gave us some tips on places to go, and provided transport for us to and from their depot and the airport. The whole exchange was extraordinarily pleasant! You are in good hands with this company. We miss the van...! Thanks Ross and CamperCo!
We had a blast in the van and would recommend Camperco to everyone. The whole process from start to finish was top notch and the support/comms was perfect.
We had a great experience with Ross and Camperco! Ross was very responsive, super friendly and picked us up from our hotel. The campervan (that we lovingly named Carl) had everything we needed and was spotless when we picked it up. We spent two weeks driving the south island with no issues and if we had to do it over again, we would definitely use Camperco.
Renting with CamperCo was an awesome experience. They were able to accommodate our unusual pickup location on the south island (Picton), and the pick up process was incredibly easy (they met us at the ferry terminal with the van!). The van itself was great! It was just the right size for what we needed and drove incredibly. Van was spotless when we picked it up, and everything was in working order. Ross was also very responsive and attentive, following up after pickup, and being sure we had everything we needed. I would highly recommend CamperCo to anyone looking to rent a campervan on the south island!
We had a great experience! Ross was easy to communicate with and the van was exactly what we were expecting. It is so nice to have everything included in the original quote, no added fees! The vehicle was a bit older than most of the other rentals we saw, but we were happy to have a reliable vehicle at a good price. We had a fantastic trip and ran into no issues or unexpected circumstances of any kind, but we felt confident that we could contact Ross if anything had come up. Definitely recommend!
Le camion était conforme à nos attentes, ce serait super d'avoir une petite notice technique dans plusieurs langues ( dont le français).
Réponse très rapide à nos questions par SMS.
I've just spent 6 weeks travelling around NZ in a Hitop camper from Camperco, and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. It was the first time I'd done this sort of thing and was travelling alone so was a bit concerned how things might turn out. It couldn't have been better. Camperco offer a really personal service which I valued. I found both the collection & drop off very easy and Ross & his team were really helpful and answered any queries promptly - both before & during my trip. The camper was well kitted out & the 'bed' very comfortable, and although the van wasn't the newest (or probably fastest) model on the market, it was absolutely perfect for my roadtrip. From a security aspect I also liked the fact it wasn't branded or obviously a rental vehicle.
Good company to rent a van. Simple comunication and fast response. The van was old but reliable and had a very reasonable price for 4 weeks.
Very good experience. Ross is here to help you and you are not just a number. I had rent a van for 3 months and all was perfect. I recommend Camperco without any hesitation
Marjolein van den Hombergh
Don’t look any further: choose Camperco, for Ross and his men/women are great helpful nice guys with great cars! We rent a motorhome from Camperco Januari 2019 and we had a great time!
Because it’s not a huge car rental the contact is very personal. If we might ever go back to NZ South Island we would definitely choose for this company again. They do as they promise. Thanx Ross! Hope the guitar has found a great new player :-) Ruby and Marjolein
We travelled around the South Island in one of CamperCo’s campervans. The vehicle itself was great, had no issues- car drove well and we found the supplied bedding comfortable. Ross was great to deal with from the very beginning, always helpful and quick to answer any of our questions. Would highly recommend!
We rented the self-contained Toyota Estima for 40 days. The car is perfectly done to make you feel comfortable, you have everything you need inside. We enjoyed so much our car, we did not get any trouble with it and Ross is super friendly and available anytime you need him.
We have done many researches before choosing CamperCo and this was the best value for what they offer. We recomend Camperco 200%!!! Thanks for everything, our adventure was just PERFECT with your services!
Timon & Gerdi
Camper&Co gave us an excellent service!! The contact before, during and after our trip with the company was great.
The facilities in the campervan meets our expectations and we had no problems with the campervan at all during our 5 weeks in New Zealand.
I recommend Camper&Co to be part of your NZ road trip and we really hope you will have a fantastic holiday too.
Very good experience. Very good price compare to the other van for the same van. I like the fact that you don t have huge stickers on the side. Ross was always answering all our questions and always very nice.
Our experience with Camperco has been amazing from the start to the end. These people honestly want you to get the best experience and were extemely helpfull every step of the way. Thank you so much Ross, Nick and Natasha!
Pick up and return of our camper was perfect. The contact to Ross before our trip as well. The Fiat Ducato was in size and features exactly what we were looking for and without huge advertising print. We had previously compared some offers and think that Camperco is a great value. No hidden costs.
This was such fun! We had an amazing time in NZ and the sleepervan we hired from Camperco added beneficially to our experience.We chose Camperco largely because they were more flexible than many other companies in terms of where we could pick up the van and drop it off. (In our case, collect from Picton, drop off at Nelson). That Camperco appeared to be less expensive for the same thing was an added benefit. Not 10/10 because our car had a mind of its own when it came to whether the key fob would open or lock the doors (but we got used to that after a day or two). But a very strong 9/10 because: it was excellent value; probably shouldn't say but the car had a few scratches to start with so the company people were very relaxed about that (unlike some other hire companies where they search the car for every new mark - don't need that pressure on); Camperco's customer care was first class - an email to check we were doing OK, and a quick response on the one occasion we had to phone them (see key fob above); the car was very well equipped with crockery and cutlery etc; it was also very comfortable to drive, and being a car rather than a big mobile home less of a strain on the mountain roads; the bed was remarkably comfortable, and (I'm 6' 1") also larger than one would think. Remember to pull the front seats forward. Final point if anyone has bothered to read this far...what are two 63-year-olds doing in a sleepervan that doesn't really have an inside wc/shower? Easy - you don't need! NZ has loads and loads of cheap campsites with superb shower blocks. You're going to be staying in those places anyway, so use their facilities and save the extra money for sight-seeing. Overall, excellent value, would certainly use Camperco again.
We really enjoyed our campervan rental from Camperco. The van was as advertised, with no hidden fees or excessive extra costs for chairs, tables, GPS etc. We found it to be a very reasonable price. The van worked well and was big enough to cook inside and fit our luggage without being too large, which was exactly what we were looking for. It was a little slow to accelerate when going uphill, but otherwise drove well. The service was really great - Ross was very friendly and had helpful tips for planning our route. Communication was clear and timely. Would recommend camperco if their size of van suits your needs as it did ours!
Great app. We'd be totally lost without it ;-) well laid out. Needs updating hence only a 9 rating.
Although we were unable to rent a camper from Camperco, we were helped enormously. Mail contact was fast and clear, in addition we received a few tips & tricks!
Camperco were super easy to communicate with and provided great advice and tips when we picked up our Camper. Our van had everything we needed and was a great way to travel around NZ's South Island!
We rented a Toyota Hitop for 28 days in the South Island. Pickup in Nelson and drop off in Christchurch went smoothly. Van was in near new condition - everything worked. Ross and staff were efficient and helpful. I would give it a 10 rating but for two suggestions: additional warm bedding for the shoulder season ( it gets chilly in the south Island into April), and chemical tabs for the porto potty (otherwise the provisioning was very good). In comparison, we rented a similar van from a big operator in Australia a few years ago, and it was much older and rundown, the bed cushions were saggy, and the provisioning was poor. Camperco in NZ comes out way ahead !!
Hiring a motor home from as far away as the UK was pretty daunting at first but the communication we had with Ross from our first enquiry was brilliant. So much so that we felt completely comfortable when we landed in Christchurch and met up with Ross from CamperCo.
The motor home he provided was clean and tidy, the bed ready made, and was also fully stocked with everything we would need for our three week trip camping around South Island.
Also, there were useful maps and guide books provided as well.
We had no problems with the motor home but felt that if we did, it would be resolved very quickly. Ross texted us a couple of days later to see how our trip was going. That is excellent customer service. We had no complaints or problems but felt if we did, Ross would deal with them swiftly.
All in all, a fantastic experience, South Island is truly stunning, CamperCo were great!!
We highly recommend Ross and his team for your trip to New Zealand. Next time we will do the North Island 😉.
Excellent service, great van and good times in the South Island! Our little van gave us everything we needed for tiki-touring the South Island. We enjoyed the ease of parking and set-up and just rolling into a campsite and feeling ready to enjoy the surroundings. Our trip was 4 weeks longer and felt like a good amount of time to spend exploring. At the time petrol was expensive but the van was fuel efficient and economical. There were no problems with the engine, kitchen, fridge or any of the facilities included. The bedding set-up was cosy, and while the mattress isn't the best for someone with some lower back issues, it served us well for the time we spent. We really had the best time in our little van, and many thanks to Ross for being accommodating and friendly to get us on the way.
I rented a camper van from Camperco for a month to tour both islands last November/December.
The service from Ross was excellent, from explaining exactly what type of van we would get and even arranging for us to pick up the van in Auckland.
Ross made the whole process of getting things sorted from the other side of the world very easy and was very informative and helpful, responding quickly to emails.
The camper was supplied in a great clean condition and was the perfect way to travel and see the country.
Ross kept in touch once we were there to see how things were going . Although our trip was completely trouble free , I’m sure that if there had been any issues then Ross would have got these sorted straight away.
I would highly recommend Camperco especially for the personal friendly service that you receive. We met other travellers along the route who had experienced various problems with their hire companies.
Ross and Camperco helped make our trip the fantastic experience it turned out to be and I would happily use their services again if I return.
We spent a wonderful trip with Camperco. The campervan was in very good conditions. Campervan correspond with our expectations.
Michel de Jonge
We hired a Nissan campervan for twelve weeks. The pickup in Auckland went smooth. We travelled around the North and South Island, the van drove fine and provided us a good home. If we needed help, Ross was allways there by e-mail. For us the camper was very lovely and cosy. It was well equiped. When we dropped off the van in Christchurch, it was nice to meet Ross himself. He brought us to the airport. We had a wonderful time in New Zealand, and the campervan of CamperCo certainly contributed a lot to that experience.
Like the description says, the best value available! We had a great pickup and drop off experience, and the sleeper van came with everything you'd need. I think the best part of the rental was the service. Any issues we had, we were able to contact Ross right away and he always responded quickly with a solution. The sleeper van was well stocked and we slept comfortably. It was very easy to drive and park, as it felt just like a family minivan.
We rented a Toyota Estima sleepervan for 17 nights on the South Island. Ross from CamperCo was super helpful with the pick-up and drop-off process, and was flexible with us when we had flight delays. He was responsive throughout the trip as well.
The van worked stellar for our trip! It had quite a few kilometers on it, but we had no issues. It's a great setup for two people - well-stocked kitchen area, pretty comfortable bed and bedding, good storage under the bed, easy to drive and maneuver. We also loved that the van was unmarked! No signage whatsoever.
There were a few minor inconveniences (the two burner stove was finicky and the brakes squeaked periodically) but nothing that detracted from our trip.
We would recommend CamperCo and hope we have the chance to use the company again in the future!
We picked up a sleepervan in Christchurch from the airport and rented it for a little over a week for the South Island. The van was perfect for my husband and I, and Ross had excellent travel tips. The van was well stocked with bedding and kitchen supplies. It ran well and was easy to use. I highly recommend this company!
Always available To assist us if needed
We recommend CamperCo
We rented a sleepervan for a month. The Estima had a bit more than 400'000 km, but ran smoothly and was well maintained. The car was very clean, equipped with everything we needed and the kitchen stuff was rather new. Great two burner gas stove, btw.
The pick-up was quick and easy. We appreciated Ross texting us after the first couple days to check if everything was alright. And it definitely was, we would have never imagined the bed being so comfy. Altogether, we would chose Camperco again for sure! Thanks Ross, it was an unforgettable trip!
Last, but not least: we forgot two necklaces in the van when we left - three weeks later, they were in our mailbox in Switzerland, thanks!!
We rent a sleepvan of CamperCo to travel from Auckland to Christchurch. At the pick up everything is well explained, the car was ready and clean. Everything you need is included in the car. The car is easy to drive, we had a great time. All the email contact with the company went well, good and clear explaination, payment easily done, everything was well arranged from the pick up to the drop off. I can highly recommend CamperCo, they offer everything you need for a great value! Good quality for a great price. Thank you!!
We rent the sleepervan for 6 weeks and everything was perfect. Staff very helpful (thanks Ross!) And pick up and drop off were really easy. Any mechanicals worries, the car was in perfect condition. The price is also really great for a fully equiped car. We had a wonderful trip in New Zealand thanks to them and nothing to worry ! I recommend this company
We hired our Ford Transit Campervan from Camperco.co.nz: a small, 'no-frills' outfit they offered the best value we could find on-line. In the flesh, this was a huge success: size-wise this was perfect for 2, gave us the flexibility to access places the larger campervans cannot easily go and with no 'hidden extras'. The internal layout was the best we saw of any campervan throughout our 6 week trip and carried the added bonus that we 'felt like locals' - without the advertising logos you see on most other campervans!
We rented a sleeper van from CamperCo. Slightly older model. Toyota Estima 2002 with 445000Km on counter. Everything went smoothly. Van in A1 condition for an older model. Equipment for cooking, tent, chairs, table to eat outside etc. Booked online, everything was clear and easy for pick-up. Staff was super helpful. Definitely would recommend this company. Gave us a good price for older model.
My boyfriend and I rented a sleeper van for 3 weeks in NZ and it was great :) the van had pretty much everything we needed- stove, propane, sink, dishes etc! We never had any mechanical issues so that was nice. The only things we had issues with were the automatic doors not working sometimes (not a big deal though) and a leaky gasket to the stove which we fixed easily! Our van also happened to have a tent awning thing which was awesome to protect from wind (but not too much wind) which was perfect for setting up the table and chairs and preparing dinner. The pickup was fairly smooth- I was a bit confused at first when we were taken to an industrial area with no office or anything- but it was all good! Ross was great at communicating and helping us with any issues we may have had along the way. Overall experience was fantastic and I would recommend renting from CamperCo! (Bonus: it was also more affordable than every most companies I looked at!)
We rented a campervan, we traveled with it in the south island, sleeping and cooking was very easy and comftrouble.
The service provided by Ross, and the CamperCo staff was very professional and simple great.
I will sure love to rent another campevan from CamperCo and I would definitely recommend this company to everyone.
Just got back from an amazing trip around NZ, our camper van which had a shower and toilet was perfect for our 6 week trip. We frequently freedom camped which worked out great with the solar panel to recharge the leisure battery. Ross and the Camperco team were really easy to communicate with and replied very quickly to any queries we had prior to and during the trip. There was a issue with the van we were due to pick up in Auckland prior to us starting our trip but we would never have known as the Camperco team had organised an alternative exact matching unit and fitted in with our plans to swop at a later date, if we could give a higher score than 10 for customer service we would have! We would definately recommend to use these guys for a first class service and great van with no advertising, we were approached by many other campers who complimented the great layout and accessible size. We're hoping to return and would not look ealsewhere for a van hire, thanks guys.
Friendly laid back outfit provided us with thoughtfully set up van, clean and well equipped at a good price. Smart exterior, no brash advertising like some firms! Would willingly book again.
Very good company, 3rd seat in front (in the middle) only with limited safety belt (no 3 point guard), not so perfect for a child with a child seat
Once a small problem with the fridge, which was easily solved
Otherwise no problems on a long ride
The solar panel recharged the car so perfectly, that we often used non-powered sites on the camping grounds (which is cheaper and sometimes where the better places)
we also liked it to go round in a campervan without any advertisment printed on it
Nic, Ross and the camperco team were professionals and easy to communicate throughout the rental process. The campervan (med size) was great to travel and easy to get around with automatic transmission and good power for the steep hills. The interior is comfortable and the design was ok ( which new fleet will be upgraded to make it more practical) and easy to get around, even with a baby on board. They were very helpful and supplied a car seat so we didn’t need to bring ours.
There are no adds on the vehicle, which feels more like your own van than driving a billboard around NZ! We were able to pick up the van from Auckland, which was ideal for our trip plans. We then dropped it off in Christchurch and got a nice ride to the airport from the drop off area.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this company to everyone. The vehicle and service are top notch.

The high-top Nissan caravan we got was perfectly equipped, clean and very impact. From quoting, booking to returning, CamperCo has been providing us excellent customer service. Especially Ross had gone an extra mile in all arrangements and very commodating. Highly recommended!

In december 2018 we rented a hitop campervan from Camperco and it was great. The campervan drove really good and everything in the van did what it's supposed to do.
In the months before our roadtrip began, I had some questions. Ross replied very quick and very detailed and a couple of times he gave us really good advise. I really liked the personal touch of the emails he sent.
When we brought back the van, Ross gave us a free drive to our hotel and told us some things about Christchurch.
We would highly recommend Camperco.
We had a great time with one of CamperCo's small vans. The car had been on the road for some km, but worked perfectly fine. We enjoyed the easygoing administration process and the personal way of communication. The Camping equipment was complete and in very good condition.
We were absolutely happy and would definitely recommend the company.
Ross was very helpful in scheduling and organizing our camper rental. All service was fast and friendly I highly recommend their service
Can’t recommend Ross and the team highly enough. His vans are neat and tidy, very reliable, and just dead easy to use. Made our trip in NZ perfect. Would use his vechile in a flash again, and would have no hesitations recommending them to friends and family. A very friendly/ genuine small business owner with a commitment to great service and your needs first.
Camperco , ross, informs you well. Had a good van / camper .
The booking of our Nissan campervan from Camperco was really easy. Nick kindly suggested two vans within our price range and was really responsive to our queries.
We were picked up from our apartments in Christchurch by Ross (really pleasant surprise). He showed us around the van and thoroughly explained how to empty the waste, fill the water etc. He also suggested a couple of freedom camping spots to check out. He was really friendly and relaxed.
We loved our campervan. It was fully equipped - cutlery, plates, pans, chopping board, mugs, kettle and even a cafetiere. It was also a great size - compact enough to drive around towns and easily park but large enough to allow us to stand up whilst cooking and convert the living area into a queen sized bed!
A massive pro to our van was the lack of advertising on the body of the vehicle. 95% of all other vans we saw were covered in logos, slogans and bright colours. It was nice being less obvious.
We would highly recommend Camperco.
Thank you - we have had the best holiday travelling around the South Island.
Great company with clean and well equipped (unbranded) hi-top Hiace. Perfect for 2p round trip through NZ. Ross was extremely helpfull and very responsive. Overall highly recommended!
We rented a high top van from CamperCo for our 3 week trip around New Zealand. Ross was our contact and he was always accessible and was quick to answer any questions we had. He was a pleasure to work with. The van was perfect for the trip! Lots of extras and comfy. We loved it and it was hard to say goodbye! The only problem we had with CamperCo was the pick up and drop off. We didn’t realize how small this company is and so they don’t have a physical space or presence in Auckland or Queenstown. They use a third party to pick up and return the van. That would be fine and we totally understand why due to cost, but the return in particular was very unprofessional. As long as you know this before hand it works just don’t be surprised. Totally worth the price though and I would rent from them again.
CamperCo were easy to deal with from start to finish with quick response times and great explanations on how everything in the vehicle worked when picking it up. We had the campervan for two weeks and never had any issues. Campervan is modern and drives well, loved that you could stand inside the van unlike most of the other campervans around, there’s extra over head storage for large bags so they’re not on you’re bed throughout the day which makes a huge difference too. Very happy with our experience and would definitely use CamperCo again.
Our motorhome holiday was made so much more pleasurable with every question, query, and help dealt with immediately. We found Ross and his team very helpful and friendly.
The vehicle and contents were spotless and we found it easy to drive and the built in facilities easy to use.
All in all we had a very enjoyable time in our motorhome named "Brian" and would recommend CamperCo to beginners like ourselves or experienced campers.
Everything was perfect. We got picked up at the airport and got our van quickly. Ross was amazing and gave us tips on places to stay.
The weather got pretty bad (rain and snow) so a heater would have been great! I highly recommend camperco!

Best decision ever to hire from CamperCo for our 2 months road trip around North and South Islands! We had a blast with the Toyota Hiace! We were actually sad to let it go. Ross was awesome the whole time and answered quick when we had questions/needed help.
The van itself was quite new and well equipped. The bed was so comfy, we slept like babies. We also really appreciated the fact that our van was ad/logo free. Compared to other similar campervan companies, we had a great deal. For the price, we didn’t expect that much actually!
We would recommend anyone to hire from this great company!
Rented the 2 person sleepervan from Christchurch for a 15 day road trip around the South Island of NZ and overall my experience was excellent.
Unfortunately I was informed a couple days before pick up that the manager of the company, Ross, would not be able to meet me and give me a tour of the van as promised so I had to settle for an explanation from one of the regular Airpark Canterbury employees who was not very familiar with the vehicle and its features. In Ross’ defense, my flight was landing around 7pm on a Saturday and it is fantastic that they even accommodate pick ups that late especially on a weekend. However I did send my flight information to him at least a month in advance and was never told this would be a problem.
Despite that, the sleepervan was well-equipped and fairly self explanatory so it didn’t matter too much in the end. Plus all of my email and phone correspondences with Ross were always very positive so I think this may have been an isolated situation. For instance, on one extremely rainy day on a flooded campsite, I got stuck in the mud and Ross was kind enough to offer to have his dad, who lived relatively nearby, to come and help me out. This gesture was above and beyond usual customer service and speaks volumes about the type of person behind this company.
Loved that they have thought of every touch with the sleepervan. There really wasn’t anything more that I needed that wasn’t already supplied. Was perfect size for one person. Definitely could manage two people but would be cozy.
We hired the Fiat Ducato 2 berth camper for four weeks and had a great time. The van is perfect for two people. It was nice to have a separate sitting and sleeping area. The van was pretty good on mileage and made our trip much more enjoyable. It is self contained, so you will be able to use it for freedom camping. Ross was very helpful during the booking process and also during our trip. We had a few issues on pick up, but Ross helped us out very efficiently and got us on our way as soon as possible. I would highly recommend using CamperCo for your New Zealand road trip.
Camper had everything we needed. Once we were acclimated to NZ driving and the roads, everything was very smooth. If we had any questions about items we were unsure about, our contact Ross answered our questions and we moved on. Very good company and people. Our particular van was an older model but I appreciated how easy it was
to drive, and also surprised about the turning radius. Parking in a parking spot on the street was easier than a car. Thank you for helping to make our NZ trip so much fun and a great experience.
I rented an Estima Camper "car" from Nelson and drove over 2000km around South Island. I thoroughly enjoyed my first experience of NZ. The vehicle was easy to handle in varied roads and weathers and although I chose to stay at camping sites it was good to have the flexibility of the inbuilt facilities if I had decided to free park. I booked easily from the UK and both Brett in Christchurch and Alan in Nelson were very helpful. A great experience all round.
Our first interaction was with their booking service, which was very good at answering back and accommodating our plans. Also it was great interacting with Ross while we were still planning our trip, he gave us information on the vehicle so that we could plan accordingly as far as technology. Upon arriving in NZ, they were ready to go 8:30am the morning of our booking and the gentleman servicing their vehicle in Queenstown picked us up and got everything squared away quickly but not rushed. We loved the van the whole time we had it, it was easy to drive, had most of the things we needed for the kitchen and extra stuff we didn't even end up using. The campervan was the toyota HiFly which was just enough room and was a comfy space for board games, sleeping and preparing dinner and lunches. The passenger seats were comfortable for long drives and had a good amount of storage up front for planning the next adventure. The one thing that I felt separated them from the rest as well was that the van is not labelled as a rental service, which I feel gave me a little more comfort in having my stuff in my vehicle when we did the Milford track or went on long hike, we looked like Locals. Dropping off the van was super easy and simple and Ross was available if we needed him but we luckily did not. Also I would say that the GPS provided was a huge plus as it really kept us on track for traveling ETAs and also kept us honest with the speed limit (huge help). Will definitely book again as the value was outstanding as well!
The company was good to work with, easy to contact and professional. I had a couple issues with my van, it needed a bit of attention (wiper blades, leak in sink...) but Ross refunded for the blades & was available via phone and willing to help try to fix things so it was a positive experience. I’d rent from them again!
Very late review as we hired last October but we had a fantastic time in the 2 berth Toyota Estima sleepervan. It was easy to drive, well-equipped and neat hide-away storage. Ross and the team were wonderful to deal with. Would highly recommend.
Very late review as hired van last October! Loved it, the van was excellent, well equipped and comfortable. Had a great time travelling round the South Island with our son. Pick up, in Picton, and drop off, in Christchurch were smooth and hassle free. Excellent value for money. Would recommend any time.
Me and my friends did this amazing trip in the South Island. For the first few days it was only me and my friend. We picked up a Toyota Hiace in Nelson. Perfect communication, flexible with the pick up / drop off hours. We drove down to Queenstown, picked up another, we switched the van for Fiat motorhome and had the week of our lives. The motorhome was just amazing, very comfortable, great kitchen for cooking. We just had everything we needed on those 4 wheels. Both vehicles were self-contained. It gives you so much freedom while exploring this beautiful country.
Both cars were awesome and the service too. I can really recommend these guys if you are looking for a vehicle to have an amazing holiday in New Zealand.
I am very satisfied with the services of CamperCo. Our exchanges before and during the trip were very efficient, everything was very well organized and simple. The Van itself was quite old but CamperCo offered me a great price because all their other newer vans were already rented.
Despite its age the van was very confortable, well equipped with all camping and kitchen accessories, several duvets and pillows, many connections for the electronic devices, ...
I strongly recommend CamperCo for the excellent value for money and for the service. Thank you !
We had the smallest van (Toyota Estima i think) for about 30 days.
- Cheapest fare we could find. We even got a bit cheaper by taking the van for a few days longer because of the discount that gives you.
- Support was very friendly and met all our requests in the planning process.
- Van was in good condition and basically had everything we needed.
- Someone hit our van on a car park and ran. No issues with the company whatsoever.
- No attempts to rip us off or charge anything extra later on.
- Pickup (Auckland) seemed a bit scetchy as it was not their official site but some partner of theirs? Made me feel uncomfortable as a first-time-van-renter.
- Same with drop off (Queenstown airport). A guy who I almost couldn't understand told me to just place the car on a car park and leave the keys inside.
- The 12V fridge is a huge plus in my oppinion but you should include a long cable for use on powered sites. Otherwise it's useless. We brought our own cable and some adapters to power the fridge and charge devices.
Why I would choose a bigger van next time:
- Too cramped for such a long time
- The bed was not too comfortable as it consited of individual pillows (we never used the "seating area configuration" anyway). These pillows were not thick enough and kept sliding apart.
All in all the van was a really nice part of our journey and considering the price a really good deal. A bit of improvisation here and there and you can make it feel like home :)
A bit late writing this review but I’ve finally got round to it.. a few weeks ago my girlfriend and I rented a camper for 8days to travel the South Island until we got to queenstown. As we booked last minute we were advised the te camper we would be getting was actually the oldest one they had and not to expect anything fancy. Once we picked the van up in Nelson we were surprised at just how good of a condition the van was in. It may have been old but it had everything we needed and we didn’t want anything different. It actually exceeded our expectations and we didn’t want to give it back. If anyone is travelling I would definitely recommend using these guys. (And maybe even ask for the oldest van they have, we named her Nancy and if the van was for sale we 100% would of bought it!) the guy we dealt with was called Ross, he really sorted us out with a good deal and checked in to see how we were getting on. Thanks a lot. All the best
Everything worked out perfectly. We could pick up our car in Queenstown and bring it back in Nelson.
Ross, from CamperCo was always available if there was a question.
We had no problems at all with the van in the whole three weeks and it came fully equipped.
I can warmly recommend this company.
Thanks again Ross and the Team for providing auch a great Camper and service. We travelled more than 7 weeks trough NZ and fell in love with our CamperCo Vehicle. We shad a tear while the Drop Off. The Camper had a wonderful clean interiour setup a was straight forward to handle. We liked also our simple 'incognito' look on the outside not feeling like an driving Advertisement. We had all the chance to enjoy NZ without serious vehicle problems distracting us.
The guys at CamperCo were always supportive, kind and patient all the time.
We will choose CamperCo again, when coming back. Highly recommended.
Camper Co recently supplied us with a high top 2/3 berth camper for our 6 week trip and we were so grateful that we came across this company! I looked at some of the bigger names in the business who we saw everywhere on the road, but I was more drawn to Camper Co because of how simple they make the hiring process, lots of features are included in the hire and there are no advertisements or logos on the van so it feels much more personal.
We found our van to be such great value and the transaction was really easy. I mostly spoke with nick and Ross who were both super friendly and helpful. They couldn’t of done more for us! overall we were really pleased with our purchase and would definitely recommend!
We booked a camper van for just 10d for three persons and received a well equipped ford transit. Pick up and drop off at Nelson airport worked smoothly. Not having a definite travel plan we received extremely helpful hints by the contact person of CamperCo in Nelson making our New Zealand experience marvelous. The vehicle worked perfectly for us, we felt very comfortable with and in it. I liked having a camper not being the same as the ones of the big camper rentals with large ads on their cars all looking the same. I do recommend CamperCo without any restriction for a perfect camping experience in NZ.
Pick-up scheduled for 10 am, van not where it should have been, when found was NOT READY. No towels, no tea towels, no broom ( bought these out of our own pocket, lost receipts)bed linen NOT sealed in plastic (was it fresh?), handoff very cavalierly done, no office space or any other permanent site (???). Christchurch was behind us when we found the tank was just about empty! Unforgivable considering the dire consequences threatened if it's not returned full! When we called were told that turn-around had been rushed; why? Booked last JUNE, why was it not returned to the depot sooner? The money for that first fill-up was immediately returned, no problem there, but this is not something you expect of a rental company! The inside of the van was reasonably clean, not so the outside. Mechanically the van was in good shape; really liked the solar panel mounted on the roof, stove and fridge worked well. We had that van for 45 days and it never let us down. There is no depot in Auckland either; the company looking after this aspect - Euro Camper - inspected and signed off, but do they really care about the little things that didn't work? We found it somewhat strange that even a small company wouldn't have a permanent location with at least one dedicated staff member! Ross did remind everyone of the census that was held and was generally helpful in case of questions but you just couldn't shake the feeling that things had been done in a rush and therefore left you wondering whether they had been done right. We are not looking to get anyone in trouble but the administrative side -for lack of a better word - of CamperCo leaves a lot to be desired. Whether our experience was a one-off or happens regularly is beside the point, customers place their trust in a company and deserve the time it takes to get them safely on the road!
Thanks for hiring with us and thanks for your feedback which we welcome - good or otherwise. It seems the van went well, had everything onboard that is supposed to be there, and we were there when you needed us to answer any questions, so that's great!
We are a small NZ owned and operated company. We don't have dedicated sign written depots which allows us to keep our prices very competitive - in all our years of operation we have not had anyone point this out as a negative. In Christchurch you'll meet me, in Picton you'll meet Mike, in Nelson you'll meet Alan. In Queenstown & Auckland we (along with a few other camper hire companies) use agents as this is the only way we can affordably offer those locations. If a dedicated sign written depot with uniformed staff is important to you then a smaller company is not the right fit.
We picked you up from your accommodation in town and drove you directly to your van. It was a tight turn-around, and the guys still had 10 minutes of work to do to get it fully ready. On the rare occasion a van isn't quite ready, we would rather the customer wait a short time than to rush & send out a van that isn't fully ready. When you left your van was fully clean, safe and ready to go. We don't supply towels in that model as there is no shower, as per the list of inclusions on our website when you book. Yes the linen was fresh and clean. No, it wasn't sealed in plastic as this is not industry practice and is environmentally unfriendly.
As mentioned we welcome and value all feedback so thanks for taking the time to write a review. We've looked back over our correspondence. Aside from a 10 minute wait at pick-up, and the tank not being full (immediately fixed) I'm really not quite sure what else we did wrong. Maybe a smaller style company is just not for you, and that's OK, everyone is different. Next time you may like to try one of the bigger commercial companies instead. It was really nice to meet you and all the very best, Ross.
We loved our camperco van and would not hesitate to recommend them to any future campervan travellers. We aren’t a family of three and we travelled for 1 month in a ford transit on both the North and South Islands. Our van ran like a dream and we had no mechanical issues at all. The van was the perfect size for three and comfortable. The customer service we received from Ross and the camperco team was exceptional- they were very responsive, friendly and enhanced our experience. Our van was very well priced and we will use camperco again!
An awesome 2800 Kilometer Journey
Thank you Ross and all the staff at CamperCo for being a great part of our time on New Zealand’s South Island. My husband and I are travelers from the US and we were so happy with our Hiace camper van. Everything was handled well from check in to check out. Our camper van was clean, well maintained and fully stocked with our camping needs. After a free pick up at the airport, we were transferred to our vehicle and were on the road soon thereafter. With our provided maps in hand and local advice we headed out on our adventure. We traveled 2800 kilometers following the coast through the Catlins, the Fiordlands, the Glacier country and Able Tasman National Park. We had a wonderful journey on beautiful South Island. And for a reasonable fee, we were able to leave our vehicle in Picton and even got a free ride to the ferry so we could continue our journey to the North Island. You folks rock and we recommend you highly.
Can’t praise these guys highly enough! Great value, fab comfy van, and perfect communication throughout. Super friendly fabulous service, thanks guys!!
An awesome company to rent from. Did everything to make our trip that much better. Our campervan had everything we needed to have a memorable trip around the South Island. Cheers!

We are a young couple from the UK who love the outdoors, so chose to rent a campervan to explore the South Island. We picked up our Toyota Hiace from Christchurch (after a free transfer from our accommodation) and toured South Island for 2 weeks, returning the vehicle to Nelson (free transfer to Nelson airport). The guys at CamperCo are great - they are super knowledgeable and quick to respond. The booking process was so simple. The van itself was spotlessly clean, the conversion was very well thought out and it had everything we could possibly need for our time on the road. We particularly liked that the van was not branded, (makes a change from seeing those bright green and purple vehicles!!) and as a result we felt less likely to be targets of tourist theft. We were very happy with the price we paid too - we would much rather support these guys who offer a tailored, personal and caring service, than the big companies who (in our opinion) charge a fortune. All in all we cannot recommend CamperCo enough - we will definitely use them next time we're in NZ.
Great company, good service, friendly people and a very good price.
Better than the larger companies and more personal.
Would hire again!
Excellent experience with camperco from start to finish. Ross was always available whenever we needed him for small questions. The camper was spotless and ran well and we never had any issues. I highly recommend this company.
Rent one of their campervan for about 3 weeks, everything was perfect. It contained lots of equipements, the inside was Nice and Clean. And all that for a REALY CHEAP price...i 100% recommande to anyone Who wants to go and explore Nz.
Good price, Ross the guy in Christchurch was very easy to deal with; camper was not new but well maintained and had all the necessary gear; compared to other companies the mattresses for the lower beds were firm enough for a good sleep; all up a positive experience, would book again. Thanks guys!
Great people carrier conversion. Small but fitted out really well. Amazing customer service from Ross when we had an issue with the brakes. Great value, and no blazing slogans across the van! Could have been a little bit cleaner overall. Awning could do with an update, as some poles were broken and had lost waterproofing. Would book again with CamperCo!
We loved our experience with CamperCo! Excellent communication, Nick and Ross were really quick to answer our questions and solve any issues. They are really friendly people and it’s a hassle-free process to book with them, not unlike GoRentals for example where you buy an insurance that covers only one damage to the vehicle… Their prices are really fair!
Our camper van was not the newest one and a few minor improvements could enhance the experience (better curtains, that sort of things), but overall we enjoyed it. It’s well equipped with accessories well thought (especially the indispensable converter to charge devices in the car (it was running non-stop in the car with our cameras). The bed is comfortable, just a little small in length if you are 1,88 m like me or above. We slept 3 weeks in it. The interior table is a little small but it was sunny almost all the time so we ate outside most of the time.
We also tried the larger model, but that was too tough for us to drive, too big. But the small camper van is really easy to drive. I drive really rarely though.
Having a self-contained camper van is a big plus in this country, don’t make the mistake to choose a vehicle without that, you’ll lose A LOT of potential places to sleep. Even begin self-contained, it was already difficult sometimes to find a free camping area…
It was a pleasure dealing with Camper Co. Ross was 100% helpful, with excellent communication through the whole process and went out of his way to courier us some items we had left in the van at the end of our trip. We were so sad to drop offour Hiace Camper at the end of our trip we forgot to check a drawer!! The van was equipped with everything we needed and designed well for a very comfortable camping experience. The camper looked great and it was wonderful to be driving around in a logo free vehicle. Will be in contact for our next camper van holiday - we had a fantastic time. Thanks Camper Co. and special thanks to Ross.
From the offset the customer service was exceptional. Both Ross and Nick have offered quick responses to questions/ quieres we had. They have made things very simple and are great to deal with.
We picked up the Fiat Ducato in Auckland and had a great experience there. The guy (forgot his name) who showed us the camper and explained how everything worked was amazing, very friendly and helpful. Even telling us where the closest supermarket was to stock up with food etc.
The only negative we had with the camper was...
•The fridge was temperamental and sometimes wasn’t that cold, think this was due to the heat so we had some food that didn’t last as long as it should of. So next time we would buy less food just more often. Just a tip for others :)
Otherwise the camper was fully equipped and easy to use. We were given two bed sheets which was really handy. No towels were provided so make sure you bring your own towels.
Would highly recommend Camper Co to anyone looking for a vehicle to tour around NZ. We’ve had such an amazing honeymoon! Thanks guys.
Matt and Alex
Overall a very good experience, aircon would be good, rear tyres worn and need replacing, I feel the overall cost was high, thankyou for your very courteous and informative communications, Greg
Having left it rather late in the game to find a campervan for our tour of the South Island, I found Rankers and Nick at CamperCo got in touch with exactly what we needed, with a little adjustment to our dates.
The booking system was easy and pretty relaxed.
Pick up was easy in Christchurch and after a quick intro to the van, a Fiat Ducato (manual - perfect), we were off. It would have been helpful to have info like the operation of the hot water in a booklet on board, some things can be easily forgotten and I later discovered after a cold shower that one switch needed to go on before the other.
Other than that, everything we needed was included, no hidden costs.
We had a few problems with the van - one of our own causing but this didn't affect our trip and was resolved quickly on return. The chip to the windscreen was fixed within hours after we contacted CampeCo and were directed to the nearest repair centre. We had an issue with the brakes, so were towed to a garage, part located as quickly as was possible (unfortunately this took two days as the wrong part was initially sent -the fault of the distributor not CamperCo or the garage). Nick was aware we were trying to get to the West to meet a mate for a tramp (hike) for his birthday and spent time locating a part closer to us than the North Island for us. This got us on the way and we made our rendez vous.
Overall a great experience, great company to deal with, sympathetic and reactive when required despite the number of times we'd to contact them, which we're sure was more than most customers. They reimbursed the lost days when the van was off the road too with no hassle.
I'd love to return and see the North Island and I'd seriously consider a Picton pick up and drop off from CamperCo for that.
Thank you guys for great service.
We hired a Hiance Bertha and it was a great choice. Overall it’s been a great experience. The vehicle was super functional and worked perfectly all the way around South Island. It has all you need to enjoy a nice holiday.
CamperCo has exceptional customer service too and was always available repplying pretty quick to questions before and during the trip.
Friendly and helpful service with a modern and we'll equipped camper - we were pleased with our choice of Camperco
Very friendly and communicative, and arranged transport to their depot before and after our trip which was really useful and helpful.
Van was well equipped and we had no problems with the van or equipment.
We had a really good experience with Camperco and would recommend them to anyone
Had an absolutely brilliant time touring South Island in our camper van.
We rented the old type (04 Hiace) and had no issues over our 16 days.
The owner (Ross) is an absolute gent and gave us some tips on the best way to travel around the island.
Would definitely recommend to a friend.
My wife and I used CamperCo and hired a Toyota Estima to camp for 9 days throughout the South Island. The entire process was easy and great. Ross made it worry-free with his quick reply's with our booking and any questions we had throughout.
We picked up the van in Picton and was met by Mike, who gave us a thorough rundown of the vehicle and some helpful travel tips on places to visit. It had everything we needed and a pretty comfy bed. The temp dropped down a few nights, but we were more than warm enough in our little "home"
We dropped off at Christchurch and had no issues throughout our holiday.
Without a doubt the best value if you want to hire a campervan in NZ!
We really enjoyed our holiday using CamperCo's Toyota Estima. Communication from CamperCo was great. We picked up in Picton and dropped off in Queenstown which was really useful. The campervan was really clean and well kept and had everything we needed for our holiday. Cant fault Camperco- highly recommended.
Nick and Ross are very nice and helpful. Even though we had a little accident on the road, we still could enjoy our trip because of their help. I'll definitely hire Comperco again in the future. Thanks again.
Great value for money. Pickup was via an agent so there could have had a better overview of the van. Overall, highly recommend for a small campervan.
Everything was flawless with our experience with Camperco. We picked our Estima up and dropped off at Nelson.
The van was clean, tidy and well-equipped - we especially appreciated the solar-powered lantern!! Great touch. There is also so much room at the front and between the driver and passenger seats which is so handy to have. The bed was comfortable and everything was easy to set up. It was also great that the van was a self-contained vehicle meaning you can freedom camp; not all campervan rentals think of this.
Everyone we dealt with (Nick, Ross, Alan, Phil) were all legends; easy to speak to and very friendly and helpful.
The instructions were comprehensive from the get-go including where to fill up and empty our grey water tank on the return.
We will definitely be using Camperco again next time we're in NZ.
Very friendly people. Propane hose leaked when we first picked up van. We picked up another hose and were compensated by camperco for the inconvenience. I liked that the van had no advertising like the juicy vans so it was more stealthy and I felt my valuables were more secure that way. It didnt scream tourist. It was more affordable than the 3x priced vans with shower and room to stand and cook inside... not as cozy on rainy days, but tolerable for a short vacation. Curtains could have been more professionally hung. They fell down numerous times and were only held in by a screw to the interior material. One touch and the screw would rip right out and then went all the rest. Would have been better with a fastener like a drywall plastic anchor. Also, the cooler provided, that hooked up to the car, did not ever cool down to a proper food holding temperature. Thus we had to buy ice for the whole trip every couple of days, dump out water, shuffle food in and out adding to the hassle.
My girlfriend and I used Camperco for a 6 week Campervan hire back in March. Perfect handover, good quality van exactly as we expected. Overall all a really easy experience hiring and returning the van, and a great time in NZ.
My son had a wonderful time using this companies camper. They were very helpful and easy to communicate with. All facilities in camper were explained and everything very easy to use. Thanks for wonderful experience. Will definitely use this company again.
We rented a Camper from CamperCo in February this year. The booking process itself is informal but easy. Nick and Ross are very nice people and helped us a lot. They answered quickly to all our questions, which gave us a good feeling.
Remarkable about the booking process is that you get an all-inclusive price (taxes, satnav, chairs, etc), so that you don't have to expect extra costs (apart from fuel, of course).
We were picked up at our hotel in Christchurch by Ross. He is a very friendly guy and we had some nice conservation. The drive to the airport took around 20 minutes, where we met our camper for the first time. He showed us around and explained everything we need to know about the Camper. The whole process took around 30 minutes and we had a lot of fun.
We got a 2013 Ford Transit Campervan. As promised the interior was refurbished recently, so that it was in a clean and good condition. Compared to other campers the interior is not very luxury, but absolutely sufficient. It offers a big stowage room and has a large bed and the shower is slightly bigger than in other campers we had a look at. It even has a solar panel on the roof, so that were almost independent from expensive powered campsites (saved us a lot of money!). It runs on diesel, which makes a big difference when refueling.
I would definitely say that the camper is well worth its money.
We returned the Camper to Nick right in front of the departure hall of Auckland Airport. He had a short look at it and asked us if we encountered any problems.
All in all we would choose CamperCo again, the next time we come to New Zealand. We had no reason to complain and were happy :)
Nick and Ross, we hope to see you again soon!
We rented the last available van in Picton. We were grateful for the friendly and flexible service. We picked up the van straight from the ferry and were ready to go!!

We ❤️ NZ.. and all experience that we got with it. Camper Co - super relaxed and casule. We felt that the arrangment, renting and meeting was all based on trust. We like that way - and it gave us a super positiv first hand impression of NZ in general and Camper Co in specific. We saw a lot of other camper travlers on the road.. but we also found out - that renting through Camper Co is a very smooth and flexible company. We were driving in a Ford Transit - re build for the purpose. It was VERY economical. We only fuel 2x in 12 Days...
Last.. we got the van From A to B not a problem.. we wanted the van from Picton to Queentown... Camper Co were the only one offering us this flexible tour...
so Thank you so much for being super Campe Co and showing us real Kiwi - Spirit..❤️❤️❤️

The campervan is relatively cheap. $4500NZD for 50 days including insurance. The campervan does have some minor damage (windows and curtains).
a quite functional, comfortable, and comprehensively furnished vehicle for a very competitive price. if you pick up in Queenstown you may not get as much instruction in the finer points of the vehicle's features, however as one-way options are limited, it's worth figuing out a couple things if you are committed to a one-way trip northwards. we actually found the mystery added to our adventure.
we would rent from them again, and only deducted one point for the aforementioned instruction deficit plus it being low on oil at pickup (easy fix by ourselves).
Ross was great with communication, everything went smoothly with pick up and drop off. We had gotten one of the older vans and it worked well, was outfitted and ran great. Thanks to both Nick and Ross for all the help you gave us, Meg & David West from Virginia, USA
We were recommended to use CamperCo by some friends who had rented with them previously. We rented a Toyota Hiace in March/April for a 21 day trip round both islands.
Friendly and quick service from the start, both Nick and Ross answered all our queries and got everything sorted for us. Another CamperCo guy picked us up from Auckland airport within 10 mins of us arriving and took us to get our van. It was an older van and had seen a lot of miles but that was made clear when we booked and it was clean and completely reliable, didn't give us any problems and was much better on fuel economy than we had thought.
The van came with everything we needed for our trip, the bed was comfy and easy to put together.
Drop off was easy to Queenstown and what you would expect (give it back clean and with a full fuel tank) and we were given a ride to the airport.
Would recommend for a laid back but professional and friendly approach to travelling around NZ. Everything was hassle free and Ross went out of his way for us on our initial enquiry. Would definitely use again. Thanks very much for a great experience.
We rented a campervan from Camperco for our 20 day trip to New Zealand. The van was super clean and cosy. It has served us well and we are 8 days into our trip. Also, Nick helped set us up and was extremely accomodating and even got us an automatic transmission vehicle.
The only issue we have had so far, was the van was newly outfitted and smelled like glue or paint. However, that is a minor grievance and we would rent from them again!
We had a great NZ experience with Camperco. I've searched for a long time for a good deal online, finally landed on Rankers, and contacted 5 companies scoring >90% which weren't the obvious large businesses with high prices. Camperco seems to be a small operation with very good deals for their campers; the trade-off is that the campers are a bit more old. However, it was fine and seemed no less comfortable than brand new ones. We've traveled for 7 weeks in the camper and had no major issues; it ran very smooth. I'm 1.98 tall and the configuration of the van is such that my feet could stick out of the bed.
The communication with Camperco and Nick was excellent, they were very clear and responsive in the communication.
Definitely a recommendation for people looking for a good deal and a good campervan!
Our trip was basically one month in March of 2017. My dealings were mostly with Ross (a Co-owner I believe). This is a small professional and honest campervan rental company. They went out of their way to assist me with my trip. I had a box of New Zealand related items (hiking boots, etc) shipped to them prior to my arrival and Ross was willing to receive the items and even store them in his personal residence. While we were traveling in the campervan, Ross stored our luggage also. They have a one price type of arrangement. When you get a quote, then that is the price, no add on's. Very good for me. Price was not the cheapest, and also not the most expensive. Sort of in the middle. You get what you pay for. Campervan was 5 years old (that is pretty new), and had the living portion retrofitted 3 years prior. So the whole campervan drove and functioned well. I was really really happy with the campervan we got. It simply worked as advertised and it worked well. No problems. Campervan was diesel so fuel was much cheaper. No mileage charges. Pick-up and return of campervan was simple and quick. I usually don't take the time to review things unless they are either really good or really bad. Camperco is really good. If you use them then you can focus on the vacation you planning and spend less time and energy on campervan type things.
Very easy co.to deal with answer any queries immediately. Nice friendly guys didn't use the conservation pass. That was our choice. Van was easy to drive and park. Just a few suggestions Nick. Maybe a long gas lighter , and plug in sink that fits a bit tighter. Great experience all round and would definitely recommend to others thinking of touring New Zealand.
Camperco was a great company to deal with, quick to communicate and very helpful. The only criticism I would have is that the camper could have been a little better equipped - for example - only 3 knives, forks, plates, cups etc - only 2 small pots and 1 comforter that wasn't overly warm. No towels and only 2 older t-towels. Would have been nice to have a few essentials (dish soap, cooking oil). Not a big deal, but a few little changes would go a long way to improve the rental.
Great Rental Team. Nick and Ross are very nice and helpful. We`ve had a big problem with our clutch and they did a really good job to bring us back onto the road. It was very easy and comfortable contacting them (via Whats App). Thanks again to Nick and Ross. We can really recommend this company to all people who prefer a stressless all inclusive package with perfect insurance and no hidden costs :-)
Transit Camper Van for 2 weeks , old van but brand new conversion.. Van was reliable and the layout very practical . We have had Transit campers before and they make an excellent easy to drive fully contained low cost option for a couple. Camperco team were friendly and efficient to deal with . Recommend them if they have the vehicle you want.
Just a note that the Transit Camper is a 2013 model - so not really what you'd call 'old' necessarily. The fit out is newer than the van yes. Thanks very much for the review most appreciated! 9/10 wow that's great - really glad you had a great time.
we were on the road for a month and they provided great support when we needed it.
We rented a Toyota Estima compact campervan from Ross and Nick at CamperCo for 36 days. We traveled on both the South and North islands, and were extremely comfortable driving and sleeping in the Estima. Ross and Nick were very helpful every step of the way from pick-up in Christchurch to drop-off in Auckland. The Estima ran perfect for the entire trip with plenty of power for the mountains and highways. For our 3,500 mile trip, we averaged 24 mpg. The Estima had all we needed for cooking (stove, pots, pans, dishes, utensils), small refrigerator and chilly bin. Linens were included, along with a nice comforter. The solar light was awesome, and I definitely recommend opting for the GPS, as it came in handy many times. Ross and Nick went out of their way to make sure our trip went smoothly by paying attention to every detail. We highly recommend CamperCo for your next vehicle hire.
Thanks so much Lynne that's magic! Hope New York isn't too snowy for ya
We had a very nice experience renting CamperCo Estima van for 2 people during 2 weeks in NZ Southern Island. The van is very convenient (comfortable bed, sink, gas cooker), reliable (never had any problem) and self-contained approved meaning we could go to a lot of free camps (easily found thanks to "Campermate" app). CamperCo staff is very friendly, available (even by email when we had some questions during the trip) and ensures free transfer from and to airports (other companies made us pay for this in the Northern Island). The price was very reasonnable considering that we took and dropped the van in different locations, always cheaper when we compared with other people we met during the trip. We would definitely use CamperCo again if we would come back to NZ (we wish we could!).
Thanks again to all CamperCo team for this unforgettable experience :)
Thanks ever so much for this we really appreciate it. all the best
We rented the Toyata Estima campervan from the first of December until the 15th of January. We had a wonderfull time travelling through New Zealand.
The campervan was very nice, the bed was comfortable and it was easy getting it from a small seating area to a bed. We are 1.78 m and 1.85m and had enough space to sleep comfortable in the car..
The kitchen gear was also very good, it included everything we needed. The gascooker is easy and good, as was the watertap.
The campervan is self contained, this means you can camp on a lot more campsites than non-selfcontained vans. So that was very nice during our trip.
Nick and Ross from camperco are always very friendly and helpfull. We never had any problemes with the van it was just everything you want.
What also was great about the camperco, especially compared to other campervan companies, was the rental price! It is cheaper than most companies, however the quality is still very good.
I would definately recommend this company to anyone who wants to travel through New-Zealand.
Thanks so much. really glad you had a great time
My wife and I visited NZ from Australia and had an amazing one month holiday exploring both islands. During this time we had a one of Camperco's ford transit vans for 8 nights. We initially decided to go through CamperCo as they offered a very competitive price, we were able to have different pick up and drop off points, have a blank van with no big advertising or 'artwork' and we like to support 'the little guys where possible'. These guys did not disappoint! All communication during booking, throughout trip and after drop off were amazing. Nick and Ross have a great mix of laid back nature with professionalism and nothing was too much trouble. We picked up our ford transit from Picton, we're met at the ferry, Mike was an awesome guy but unfortunately not very familiar with this vehicle as they had just expanded their range. Due to this we had to find out some features through trial and error but both Mike and the boys were very apologetic, no big dramas for us. The van had a few km's on it (expected) but our fitout was brand new. Everything worked well, was a great size van for 2 adults, no problems whatsoever. We had a couple small breakages to crockery (which we fully expected to pay for) however when we informed them on drop off, they were happy to wear the cost.
Did the company live up to expectations and communicate well? DEFINITELY
Was the van in good working order with good features and fitout? DEFINITELY
Was the van priced well, pick up and transfer easy? DEFINITELY
Would we recommend CamperCo to others and would we use them again? DEFINITELY
Thanks again guys, we hope to visit NZ again and when we do, we will 100% use your company again! Good luck to you all!

I was desperate to hire a Camper for my trip to NZ in Dec16 but was having great difficulty finding a company that had any availability for the period I wished to travel. Fortunately I was pointed in the direction of the RANKERS site and shortly after submitting my online request I was contacted by CAMPERCO telling me that they could help. I was impressed from the outset, they had a wilco, friendly and easy going nature that I was later to discover is typical Kiwi.......the whole booking process was easy and simple to follow and understand. Any questions I had were answered extremely quickly ether by e-mail or in person over the phone....nothing seemed too much trouble. With everything confirmed and armed with the details of where and when to collect the Camper we departed for NZ. The collection process was clear and easy to follow, even with jetlag, Ross guided us through the van explaining how everything worked and off we went. We spent a glorious 21 days travelling around both islands covering some 2500 miles and did not experience a single problem with the Camper - it met our every need and become our home from home. We are already planning the next trip and will certainly be using CAMPERCO again. There were 'Sweet As Bro'.
Thanks so much Bob. We do our level best and I'm very stoked you had a good time. All the best! Nick
We hired the Ford Transit Campervan and found the experience with Camperco very positive. Nick was very helpful and responsive both before and during our 9 day trip and the van was spacious, feeling modern, clean and well equiped inside. The only thing we would add to the kitchen is a couple of wine glasses!!
The fact that we were able to pick up at Nelson and drop off and Picton was particularly helpful as this allowed us to catch the ferry from Picton on foot with no hassle. We found very few other companies prepared to do this at a reasonable price. As others have said the prices were competitive and there were no hidden charges making things very straightforward. We did have a minor problem with the van not starting at one point en route but again were very impressed that Camperco had somebody out to look at the vehicle quickly meaning that we were back on the road within an hour.
Altogether a great experience and would definitely recommend.
Thanks for the review Nick we really appreciate it mate! Hope your stop in Windwhistle was enjoyable :-) Cheers
The communication with Ross and Nick was great, they helped us quickly when needed and went the extra mile. The vehicles are a bit older, but you know that beforehand and they function great! And they keep the interior updated, so the pillows/drapes etc are quite new, and the kitchen is well equiped. Good pricing compared to other companies this time of year. We would definitely recommend Camperco!
Camperco are a fairly small organisation and this inevitably makes them different from the big players. This was almost wholly positive for us as we had a close and friendly relationship with Ross & Nick. We did have a van malfunction but Camperco were helpful and understanding in trying to fix it. In the end it was not practical to repair but we felt satisfied that sufficient efforts were made. A larger company may have been able to sort it easier but this did not alter our initial decision to use Camperco. They offered an all-in package with no added extras so that the price they initially quoted was amount we paid.
We would definitely use Camperco again and would recommend them to other like minded people
Camperco delivered as promised. Their vans are older and have higher mileage but the van seem to be well maintained and everything was in good working order. The alternator failed midway through the trip but Ross and Nick at Camperco arranged to have it replaced the following day. The cushions and curtains were new and the bed was comfortable to sleep in. Everything lived up to my expectations and I would recommend Camperco to other travellers.
Service by Nick & Ross was kind, flexible and considering.
Car condition was perfect! It was a 2005 Toyota Estima, about 138K, original color, great condition and really fun to drive.
Interior of the car was very convenient with all the facilities we needed: bad, kitchen, sink, water, gas, space for bags and all additionals. You don't need to bring anything with you except from your sleeping bag if you're cold at night.
Price was the best I found for the months of October-November.
I would definitely recommend my friends and family to hire their car from CamperCo.
This car was our home and we loved it.
Thank you Nick & Ross,
Boaz & Lior
2+1 ford transit camper was a good fit for 2 adults and a 4 year old. Seating arrangements was 3 in the drivers cab, so we could keep an eye on the kid - which is what we liked!
Van was about 2012, a bit used but mechannically no problems with it for the 2000+km trip round south island. Very Reliable! Interior fittings were brand new as it had just be refitted. Looked like a new campervan internally! No flash logos outside too to show it was a rental vehicle- Plus point there!
Dealt with nick, gave me an all in price with no hidden extras, 0 excess, free child seat and discounts due to our long booking and waived off my relocation charge. Much better than other companies with all the hidden charges. How awesome is that!
Only gripe i had was the frying pan included was warped and unusable , ended up buying a new one. Also wasn't familar with the systems on the first day so no hot showers :( Would have been better if the car came with a quick start manual on how the systems work. Once we started exploring it was OK. Everything worked internally as it should. Really enjoyed ourselves with this camper as its not too big so we could go for the a bit more off the track drives.
Amazing way to see New Zealand. We hired the Estima camper from CamperCo. This was a 'beaut machine that had all the necessities required for a couple on an 8 day trip around the South Island. The team at CamperCo were great to deal with - from our first contact through to picking up the vehicle and dropping it off. The Estima handled the drive through the mountains without skipping a beat. On pick up Ross showed us through the Camper and gave us some tips for driving/camping in NZ, then sent us on our way. I would highly recommend these guys to anyone thinking about hiring a camper van to travel around NZ fuss free - Pros:
No advertising stickers on vehicles,
Dark tinted windows,
Ability to be self contained
12v:240 inverter - handy addition for charging laptops & e.c.t while on the road.
Easily contactable staff.
8 days was not enough!
Thanks Kel! Really appreciate it and so glad you had a great time.

In planning a one month visit to New Zealand, we immediately went looking for a camper van to lease. Camperco's web site proved to be the best one among all of its competitors (easy navigation and lots of information). The entire package and price for a long term lease were also superior. Unfortunately, after making our reservation, we found that we cannot complete the trip. The staff were extremely friendly and understanding about our dilemma and quickly processed a refund. Should we be able to visit New Zealand next year, Camperco will be the first place we will go for a camper van rental. Nice people and a good deal!
We've been touring the NZ South Island in Feb-March for five weeks with one of Camperco's Estimas. The car was fine and had everything we needed (well ok, except a knife was missing).
Booking from Germany and pick-up from / drop-off to different locations was perfectly smooth. Unfortunately we had a breakdown in the middle of nowhere between Queenstown and Te Anau. It was a quite rare defect so no one's to blame. However, after calling Nick we had a mechanic with us in just about an hour - on a late Friday afternoon! Yup - these guys are really caring for their customers a great deal. They helped us in having 5 amazing weeks in NZ - we'd pick them again! Thanks Ross, Nick, Mike etc. and sorry for being late with the review! ;-)
Um...just one more comment, some people may find this helpful: Before booking, I was wondering if the berth would be long enough for me (1.86m). It was! If you move the front seat all the way to the front and put some stuff behind it to support the foot end of the mattresses, I'd say you should be fine up 1.90m.
Toyota Estima, 2 seater. Perfect setup for the no-frills traveller. Plenty of space for our gear and tinted windows to keep prying eyes away from viewing all of our stuff. All essentials (cooker, awning, tables, chairs, solar light. bedding) provided. A taller person may find the bed too short, but for us it was just right. Helpful staff on call.
Camper was clean and tidy and all ready to go for us. Friendly staff. Great way to see New Zealand. Thanks!
Had a great time exploring the South Island of NZ in our CamperCo camper! Staff were friendly and helpful, camper was well equipped and never missed a beat. Just what we needed for our trip and we will recommend CamperCo to our friends and family. Thanks!
We have had the best 10 days in the south island with our rented camper van from CamperCo. We took the 2-seater Estima and really glad we did. The Estima was powerful, absolutely a delight to drive in the hilly Lindis Pass; made us really glad we didn't go with another company which provides less powerful vehicles, although cheaper. Honestly it was worth it.
The van was well equipped, and Ross was clear and fast on communication. There were small hick-ups here and there but it was no biggie. I have even recommended CamperCo to my friends. Will look into doing business again with you!
Wow my wife and I have just done two relocations and a 10 day hire. Cannot speak highly enought about the experience. Reliable vehicle and Ross goes out ouf his way to make our experience enjoyable. We are coming back for another holiday and will do business with CamperCo.
Very happy with service from Camperco. Looked after us well. Able to pick up van in Nelson and leave in Christchurch. Nelson and West Coast of South Island great places to visit by campervan.
Our family (me, my wife and our two kids, 6 and 2 years old) had a wonderful time on the southern island of New Zealand, thanks to CamperCo! We rented the motorhome for 16 days and although the vehicle wasn't top modern in every aspect (which was well explained in the e-mail conversation with Ross), it was very reliable and we never had any major problems obstructing our travel plans. Good and safe booster seat and child seat for our children. Customer service and contact absolutely superb! Ross was very helpful, from our initial contact and throughout the whole rental period. I would definitely recommend CamperCo to anyone considering renting a motorhome on New Zealand!
Thanks for the review Christofer
It was such an excellent service and the car was perfectly fine. The pick up was well, smooth and easy organized - the same counts for the drop off. In case of any urgent matters the staff was a great support and made sure we had a great holiday.
We can fully recommend CamperCo, as the car was also in a good shape and provided everything we needed.
Thanks so much Stephanie, we really appreciate it.
This was our first experience in any sort of camper and we hired the auto Estima van for close to three weeks in Feb and it met our expectations and then some! The set up was pretty much identical to the photos on the website, the only difference was that the stove wasn’t on a pull out shelf/platform. This wasn’t really a concern for us as there was a table included with the van hire. All the basics are included in the hire (cutlery, bowls, plates cups etc.).
The bed was really easy to set up and there was a good amount of storage space too. The internal height of the benches was just low enough for us to sit inside and use the dismountable table - so long as we weren’t sitting on the cushions, couldn’t quite sit upright w cushions! (We’re quite small - 5’0 and 5’4). However we only had to use it once or twice when it rained, other than we were outside using the table and chairs provided.
The van itself was in good condition and very clean. Easy to drive and small enough for the narrower country roads and with plenty of grunt (3.0L). There is only a small camperco sticker on the rear windscreen so it’s not as obvious as some other companies, so as not to stick out like a sore thumb.
The team running Camperco are also super friendly and helpful. Would definitely use them again and recommend to friends and family.
Glad you had a great time Charlotte :-)
From initial enquiry to booking, pick up and then return the communication and service we received was exceptional. Ross and Nick were extremely accomodating and the Hiace didn't miss a beat for our two week trip around South Island. Perfectly equipped, clean and in working order. Would highly recommend!!
Old cheap camper, booked spontaneously, nice staff.
We hired a Hiace for 10 days for travelling round the south island. The communication prior to our trip was excellent and Ross did his best to meet our requests. He dropped the van off at our accomodation in Christchurch and picked it up again when we returned. The van itself was in great condition for its age and ks and got us safely and comfortably round durning out trip without any problems. Would use them again.
The camperco camper that was our home for 9 days drove well without any issues whatsoever. The pick up/drop off at christchurch & Picton ferry was easy & even when there was a slight booking mis-understanding camperco went out of there way to rectify the issue just making our NZ adventure all the more for their hospitality & good kiwi spirit. Thankyou Camperco!
Camperco was very helpful, and they offered us a really excellent price on our rental - especially considering we picked up in Queenstown and dropped off in Nelson. The vehicle didn't have any major issues. It was older, had some funny rattles and clanks... but overall treated us well. It also got less than stellar gas mileage, but given what we paid for the rental it was fine. Remember that you drive on the left side of the road!
We chose to rent one of the camper vans from CamperCo because they were the only company that would accommodate a pickup in Queenstown and dropoff in Nelson without excess fees. Overall, the van worked well with our travel plans despite being quite old and tired. Our major complaint about our experience was that the pickup in Queenstown felt chaotic as if they weren't expecting us despite having confirmed several times before the trip via email. I don't know if this was because it was the day after Christmas or because we were picking up in Queenstown, but they drove us to the van that was in a random parking lot, but the sheets hadn't been washed so we had to wait for another guy, who came in on his day off with clean sheets and then was surprised to have to give us a tour of the van's features. He muddled through it but seemed unsure about most of it. We ultimately figured everything out on our own and were able to get everywhere we needed to. The van's interior was well thought out by the person who designed it and had plenty of storage despite being a smaller vehicle. The drop off went slightly better than the pickup, but was also disorganized since we thought we'd be able to drop off in downtown Nelson but at the last minute they changed it to the airport at a rental shop that also seemed surprised when we pulled up! They did reimburse us for the shuttle back to town less the paypal processing fees.
We had a great experience with CamperCo. They literally saved our trip by managing to deliver a Toyota Estima campervan with 2 weeks notice for a 30 day trip in the busy summer season. The email exchange with Ross (from CamperCo) answered all our questions and adding additional gadgets was no problem. The pick-up of the campervan was conveniently done from Nelson airport and was uncomplicated. Diana showed us everything and the van had all we needed. She was in addition extremely helpful for getting back a lost bag. The van did not let us down driving around the South Island (down the east and up the west coast). We had a great time on our trip in NZ and would definitely rent again from CamperCo.
Our experience with CamperCo was exceptional. We had the campervan dropped off to us in Christchurch by Ross who was friendly, helpful and gave us his email and phone number for if there were any problems.
The campervan we hired was a 95 Estima which we managed to get an amazing deal on because it was an older model. Despite its age it was an incredibly reliable van which did not let us down over the 15 days we had it. The few problems we did run into were quickly resolved by Ross. One burner on our gas cooker did not work, while the other did not function well. We contacted Ross who immediately told us that we should buy a new one and that we'd be reimbursed. It was great to have such incredible customer service whilst on the road and knowing we had that made our trip a great deal more stress-free and enjoyable.
The Estima itself was comfortable to sleep in and had lots of space for our things. Camperco did a great job custom building the camper as we never found ourselves short on space or having to fish out stuff hidden away. All in all, we highly recommend Camperco. Their customer service is one of the best and their campers are reliable, comfy and extremely well maintained.
We were on a budget so went with an economy van, no toilets no heat. It was an older vehicle but in good running order had no problems and the guys from the company we met were great, very helpful.
We switched companies last minute and decided to go with Camperco after reading the reviews. They give very good service and told us on the phone that the van is older, has a lot of km, but is still driving very well.
They delivered the camper to our hotel room the night before we had booked. The camper was fully equipped, very clean, and had everything we needed. We had no issues during the 2 weeks in NZ and loved driving around in it. It had still a lot of power. And everything worked, including the AC which is important.
Decided to go with CamperCo after months of planning a solo NZ roadtrip. Pick-up was very easy from Chch airport. I met with Ross at the carpark and he showed me the ropes of the van, which was clean and ready to go. When I had trouble with the cassette adapter (need music for a NZ roadtrip!), Ross got in his car and guided me to a nearby store where he bought a new adapter for me to use during my trip around the South Island. Never had any problems with the van (Toyota Estima) and loved all of the different storage compartments. It was very easy to keep things organized, especially food in the back. Had a couple people stop by at campsites because they wanted to see how mine was set up for their own ideas. Only thing is that the "fridge" is kept cool only when the car/battery is running - so things warm up easily if the battery is off. Can't keep milk cold for long. Also - the Estima might not be enough space for two travellers with lots of stuff. If you're a minimalist, then go for it. Otherwise - GREAT experience. Inspired me to stay in NZ for another year with a working holiday visa and I would 100% rent from CamperCo again.
We hired a sleeper-car from Camperco from Christchurch for 10 days, and were very impressed with their service. Ross was very friendly and helpful over phone and email while we planned our trip, and ensured we were picked up from the airport and taken to the depot where he introduced us to our car. The car itself ran really well, and had everything we needed, plus a few extras that came in handy like phone chargers etc. We had no problems with the car over our trip - it handled better than a van - though it did turn out to be less fuel efficient than I thought it might be. We will definitely use Camperco again for our next trip.
We had such an amazing experience with CamperCo. Downright brilliant customer service. Nick was so nice and helped us out with everything we needed. They were even able to pick us up from the airport, drive us into town and hold our bags for us until the camper was ready. Nick was super helpful and quick to respond to all questions and concerns and did a great job organizing the purchasing and pick up of a needed accessory for the car as soon as we let him know there was a small issue with the provided one (the charging converter). Overall a great experience with this company, highly recommend. It was one of the only companies we found that allowed for pick up in Nelson, as well as the ability to drop off in another location eg Queestown. Very affordable and a great van too! We got the two seater Estima. Thanks for everything!
A great experience with camperco, they made our trip really easy for us... Van was in good working order, never let us down, well catered for our 20 month old and efficient service. Thanks guys for allowing us a fabulous NZ tour!
Had a great experience with CamperCo - prior to hiring the camper, they were very friendly and promptly answered any questions I had. The real bonus though was being met at the airport with the van and being able to head off straightaway - this saved me heaps of time and Nick gave me a thorough run through how everything worked. Then campervan itself (the estima) was easy to drive and had everything I needed. Would definitely use CamperCo again.
The guy in Picton forgot to meet us at pickup and drop off, so we had to call him. Besides that everything was great. The really well equipped Toyota Estima (GPS, all sorts of 12V-converters (USB, 230V,...), good gas cooker, cutlery, dishes, etc.) with its powerful 3 litre engine worked well all over our 3300km journey on the South Island and we can definitely recommend CamperCo.
My partner and I hired our Campervan through CamperCo. My partner was a little skeptical at first (as he didn't realise that I had been researching to extreme to find the best van for the trip!). After a few emails back and forth with Nick (from CamperCo) we settled with a 3 Berth Hiace. We asked for a small heater as we are from Queensland-Australia and don't deal with the cold very well. The heater coped with the 11 day bashing it received with no dramas. We drove from Christchurch, down the west coast, then in towards Queenstown, then back up the middle through Mt Cook, then over to Akaroa, back to Christchurch. The van handled well, it's not a brand new vehicle so it had its small quirks. We did have a small issue with the radiator (we weren't entirely sure what it was at first- the light was coming on and off half way through the trip) we called Nick and left a message, not long after we received an email to say what it was and all the instructions to fix it. No other issues occurred after that point. The van was clean and tidy and Ross showed us all the bits and pieces when he dropped it off to our hotel, which was nice of him as usually you need to pick up from the airport. My partner and I would like to do North Island at some point and would totally use this company again without hesitation.
We are really happy and satisfied with the Camperco service! They managed to deliver a van to Nelson with just 2 days notice and in the shortest time possible! They literally saved our trip!
The van is really cozy and well organized, easy to drive and pretty much brand new! It comes well furnished and provides all the camping gear too (that's really helpful!)
Thanks to them we are having a great time!
We travelled around the South Island for 2 weeks in February in an Estima from Camperco - a totally positive experience. We chose Camperco after looking at reviews of other companies, and were so glad we did. Not only was the hire extremely good value, but more importantly we had complete confidence in the company. Every contact with Ross and Nick was cordial, respectful, clear and straightforward - they both were a pleasure to talk with. They did all they could to supply what we needed - eg extra tent and bedding. No hidden costs, no hassles at all.
We had a slight collision with another car, and Ross and Nick provided great phone support while this was sorted.
Estima drove well, just like a car, good fuel economy, very comfortable to sleep in, had everything we needed, and no logo!
No hesitation in rating Camperco 10/10. We will be back again next Jan for another two weeks. Knowing the quality of customer service these guys provide, we feel very confident and happy to book with them again.
Really exceptional! Thanks Nick and Ross.
They did an awesome job with us. Great customer service from the first question to the last day of booking. Flexible and uncomplicated! We loved every minute with Big Bertha. Thumbs up!
We went with Big Bertha for the second time. And again, no issues with the Camper. The team is super friendly and helpful. Highly recommended!
Very good to deal with, some minor issues with the van. Van drove really well. If air conditioning etc sorted then would get a higher review.
Nick and Ross done an awesome job with us! The van was comfy and really well settled , we drove for a month with Vanette around NZ and it was the best experience we never had ! CamperCo was always here for us and I would do it again if I would be able to do so !
Thank you very much :)
CamperCo did everything they said they would do, and we loved our campervan. A bit old and creaky maybe, but it suited us fine, and there were no added extras, even when we broke a saucepan handle. 'Never mind', was their attitude. A really nice company.
We had a wonderful 3 week tour of the South Island with our 21 yr old daughter in Camperco's 6 Berth camper. We arrived in CCH very late, after 42 ungodly hours of travel delays sans bags...Ross took such good care of us that I did not even have a meltdown! The camper was clean, roomy,comfy, everything worked great. We had one concern during the trip which was instantaneously addressed with a phone call. We got good mileage and felt safe on the road and " at home" in Big Bertha. From first contact through thank you emails, our experience with Ross & Nick at Camperco was exceptional. These guys do a fine job, they really care about their business and their customers. It was our pleasure to enjoy attentive, personal service. (It was also a bonus to drive a van that was not a giant,rolling logo). Thanks Camperco!
Thanks Nick, Ross, and crew. Recently had a great tour of the South Island...2000+km's in 16 days. Great service..on time..on budget..and trouble free!
ps..saw a Wallaby
Fantastic service all the way from first contact via email to dropping the van off at the end (reluctantly). If you want to rent a good quality vehicle from real people at a good price - You've found the right place. Thanks Camperco.
We are very happy for this rental, and for all the informations given by Ross before and during our journey.
We had his personal phone number, so we could phone if any problem.
Price is very good, one of the cheapest for a 6 berth. Not a brand new campervan, but well furnished and equiped (extra blankets, free gps, free detailled map book).
I would definitely rent again with camperco and I would recommend people to rent with them.
Rented a Toyota Estima for 11 days. The van drove perfectly and was very fuel efficient.
We rented ours from Queenstown, so I think we had one of the older models. The equipment wasn't exactly as show on the pictures, but still met our expectations.
Good value for the fares, we strongly recommend!
Amazing service from the off and great value to match, from what we saw, the best value you can get. Had NO problems with the van (Estima) at all and the staff were exceptional. This company quite literally MADE our NZ trip. THANKS :)

We rented a Camper Van (Hiace model) for 2 weeks with CamperCo.
We were impressed by their flexibility and their reactivity. The van was perfectly furnished, and was easy to drive.
We would defintely recommend CamperCo for their professionalism
We hired the Hiace for a week and had the best trip ever! Nick was fantastic, right from the moment we called saying we would like a van the next day. He made everything so easy and there was absolutely zero stress from start to finish. It was also really good value for money, the van had everything we needed and was a pleasure to drive and to camp in. Seriously, can't recommend Camperco highly enough! We will definitely use them again next time!
Great deal. Great people. Recommended to everyone. 10 out of 10
We had the Estima for just over three weeks. It made our experience of the South Island so easy and relaxing! We had Ross from CamperCo meet us from the ferry and showed us around, carefully explaining everything and anything we needed to know about our camper. We even got plenty of advise about where to go and how long we would need to get around the island without rushing. The staff couldn't be more helpful! The camper was perfect, everything you need compacted into a discreet vehicle. It has a good amount of space inside if you need shelter when eating etc and the spacious bed folds out easily for the evenings. We just had the best time! Thank you CamperCo, we will be back!
We had hired the Toyota Estima for 11 days to travel around the South Island. It was just my husband and I. We chose CamperCo mainly cause of the price factor. We knew the vehicle would not be as flash as other companies which claimed DVD, TV, etcetera and thank god we did not go with them. Not having that made the experience of camper vanning so much more epic. The vehicle was very stable and reliable. Ross from CamperCo even got us a free SIM card to use during our trip to the South Island. We did not have to use it though. The personalized hand written note for not being able to meet us in person as it was the Easter weekend speaks volumes for the team. The only reason I took one point off was because of the lack of charging points - we could either run the freezer box or charge our devices - this was a bit of an inconvenience to us. You could also blame that on our ignorance. The moon roof was another thing that made the experience of sleeping under the yellow kowhai trees the best ever. Thank you Ross and CamperCo. We will definitely be hiring from you soon.
We rented 'Big Bertha' for 17 days of fun around the South Island. We loved the space as even though there's only 2 of us, my Husband is really tall. You are fully self contained with cooking / bathroom etc if you don't want to go outside into the rain! The team at CamperCo are super friendly and helpful, they really go the extra mile to make your holiday special. We chose them because the service looked more personalised (and it was) and being well travelled themselves, they know what they want in a motorhome. We found BB easy to drive (once you get used to having 7m behind you!), no problem on all the curly steep roads, she's quite gutsy too which means you're not holding up all the traffic on the straights. Can't wait for our next adventure in Big Bertha with CamperCo.

We were searching for a good price offer for a motorhome to hire for six days, and CamperCo certainly have one of the best offers. Booking was super easy and the customer service was excellent.
We had many questions on how to drive the van and so on, since it was going to be our first trip to New Zealand (we just got back from South Island and it was too gorgeous for words!) and we’re just a bunch of silly girls who get scared easily. But Ross from CamperCo had been so obliging, I’m sure he had a bit of headache answering all the questions from the emails. His assurance made us comfortable to go ahead and hire Big Bertha!
When we arrived for the pick-up Ross was kind enough to give us driving lessons and gave out some pointers. We had issues about wanting to use the usb/power socket thingy and Ross was too kind loaning us his power inverter car adapter.
Our van was reliable and driving was surprisingly quite easy, we just had to mind the height and the length of the van and parking can be a little bit tricky. All in all we were more than satisfied with the van and it was our home for six days. I would definitely recommend hiring CamperCo’s Big Bertha and hope we will rent it again in the near future.
We hired a van for 10 days to travel in the south island and from all the people we asked around, Camperco seemed the best option (price/quality ratio). When we arrived in Picton, we got the warmest welcome and picked up from a member of Camperco team, Darryl.
The van was brilliant and very easy to drive (even for us who never drove on the left side of the road), very well equiped, nothing was missing! We had a few questions on a some technical aspects (not because something went wrong just because we are girls!) And Nick replied very quickly and efficiently all the time.
We even got dropped at the airport early in the morning when we dropped the van in Cristchurch.
We will definitly recommend Camperco to anyone who wants to enjoy NZ in a comfy van, for cheap and with the best service ever.
We hired a Hi-top Hiace from Camperco for 11 days in February ’14, and cannot recommend them highly enough. The van itself was great; simple, comfortable and easy to drive and use, but what really stands Camperco out is their customer service. The owners Nick and Ross say they are available to talk to 24/7 over the phone, and because we had an issue with our ferry crossing to the North Island, they totally proved this to be the case.
Due to bad weather, we were unable to get the ferry crossing we were after and so had to fly over instead. As we were in Blenheim when we found this out, at no extra cost to us Nick and Ross offered to pick up the van from Blenheim airport instead of from Picton as booked. We cannot imagine any of the larger companies offering this flexibility or customer service.
Everyone we dealt with at Camperco, Nick, Ross, Janelle (who dropped it off for us at Queenstown) and Darryl (who collected the van from us at Blenheim airport), were really helpful and full of proper Kiwi friendliness. Cheers to all!
Great customer service!
Had the best 3 weeks over christmas and ny 13/14 campervaning around the s.island. The hi-ace was perfect for me and my boyfriend. Will defo be recommending. cheers guys
We booked campervan Bertha with CamperCo for March 2014 and received an outstanding customer service from the minute we made the booking, including an offer of a included pick-up service from the train station upon our arrival.
Unfortunately we had to cancel our trip due to illness. Nick was exceptionally friendly, processed our cancellation immediately and found kind words for our disappointment.
We have been renting campers in Australia for the last five years and haven't had such good experience with any of the companies yet. It is great to see that New Zealand has alternatives to the bigger rental companies. We highly recommend Nick and his team.
We had an amazing 14 days travelling the South Island in the Hiatus we rented from CamperCo. As soon as I picked up the van in Picton and got a big hug from Darryl I knew I made the right choice with CamperCo. The van drove smoothly, was easy to maneauver, and very comfortable. Nick was super helpful and accomodating in making pickup/drop off arrangements, and the van had almost everything we needed, which I'll mention, but in no way detracted from the experience. Perhaps a flexible plastic cutting board and square plastic bin (like the size of the sink) to carry food/dishes to community kitchens at campgrounds would be nice, but a box works too :)
We had a slight issue with the backup battery charging system which didn't impact the van mechanically at all (only keeping the fridge cold) but Nick personally came to see if he could help and arrange repair quickly. While we waited he took out for coffree's and offered to take us paddling while we waited. That was awesome personal attention. The issue was resolved quickly and we were on our way.
I just can't say enough about how great the trip was and how great it was working with Nick and his team at CamperCo. They even shipped me an item I regrettfully left behind in the van... now that's service!
A well fitted campervan, comfortable and easy to drive. The service from Nick was exceptionally friendly and professional. We wouldn`t hesitate to use CamperCo again.
Thank you CamperCo for renting us a great and practical car for our 6-days trip! The Estima was reliable and easy to drive, also spacious with everything we needed.
The pick-up/drop-off from the airport was great, and made our travels smooth!
All of this for a great price, we were super happy!
Great value camper van. Clean and good mechanically. It was great being able to pick it up at 5.30am when our plane arrived in Christchurch. Free shuttle to and from airport was really good as well. Never doubted we would get over every mountain.
I want to thank CamperCo for a great vacation in New Zealand. We spent 8 days in the Toyota Estima on the South Island. The campervan came equipped with all the stuff we would need for our journey. The campervan worked great we were able to do everything we wanted and CamperCo was very flexible with our needs. Thanks again
Booking with these guys was a breeze, they gave us a great deal and were able to answer all questions and cater to our needs with no problems.
Unfortunately I had to cancel my booking because of a change in plans - but they were amazing! So understanding and reasonable. Everything was sorted out efficiently and professionally.
Cant wait to use their services in the future!!!
Thank camperco team (Nick) we hied a really nice camper van. booking etc was very easy Nick was grate to deal with, The camper was just ideal for a South Island road trip.
Got the Hi-Ace van from these guys. First day I saw it I knew my life had reached its high..The purr of the engine, the look of the van, it nearly reduced me to tears of happiness. Van drove perfectly, it had everything we needed. On a down hill descent with a gust of wind on our tail I mistook it for my Golf GTI..!
Seriously though, great company to deal with, Nick made everything really easy. I would definitely recommend CamperCo to people looking for a decent camper without any hassle.
Had a great trip with the CamperCo van.......Had no problem at all.....the van was great...drove like a car unlike the bigger vans we encountered which were slow...but big enough to be comfortable...we became quite fond of it

Rented the Estima campercar. Pretty good, not that spacious though but overall pretty good! The people were great to deal with, had some battery troubles during our drive down to the South Island but AA patched it up in no time. Wanted to jump start the car at first but the jump start cable was severed so that was a bit of a bummer. Driving in automatic was a breeze and I couldn't imagine driving manual with all the hills in New Zealand. I wish they had the Hiace hitop camper in automatic though, would've rented that instead. All in all would definitely use them again!
It was a great pleasure to be dealing with a small and flexible company that really understands how to treat their customers. We booked early and Nick was very helpful in explaining how everything would work. The real deal clincher was the trivial charge for a pickup in Picton - all the big companies wanted hundreds of $$$. The Hiace was compact, really easy to drive and quite economical. The setup was great and the thick long curtains were fantastic when there were outside lights. Plenty of storage space too. Would have been a 10 but the sound system wouldn't co-operate, Nick offered to get it fixed but we couldn't be bothered! Unreserved recommendation to anyone w.anting a small camper in the South Island of NZ
We rented the big bertha for 12 days, 5 people.
The staff has been very friendly and helpful before and during the rental, by email, phone or text. This was our first time driving/using a camper van, and we got comprehensive explanations and advices when we picked up the vehicle in Picton.
We were very happy with the campervan, very clean and fully furnished, with comfy bed linen that kept us warm overnight. All the dishes you would need, and even extra towels to step on if your feet are wet when coming from outside.
We dropped off the camper van in Christchurch, which was very handy as we wanted to spend more time in the South, and got dropped off at the airport on time to catch our flight for Auckland.
I would definitely recommend CamperCo, they provided a great customer service and a reliable vehicle for a very decent rate !
Very convenient for a road trip in the south island, very clean campervan, and very nice people to deal with !
We hired a Toyota Hiace from Camperco in January to travel round the south island. Before we got to NZ, we dealt with Nick and Haidee via email and they were both really helpful, answering all our questions and queries. We picked up the van in Picton, it was really clean with a full tank of petrol so no complaints there. We had an issue with the radio so had to call a few times to get help, Nick resolved the issue really quickly. We also had one other hiccup with the van battery which again, was sorted within a day, again, Nick was really helpful. We loved the van - it was a great size for two people and was a perfect run around, even the bed was surprisingly comfortable and for once on our travels, we had decent curtains!! We much preferred Camperco as a smaller more personal company to some of the bigger companies out there - would highly recommend them :)
Excellent, would definitely use again. The deal was so good we were half expecting no van to be there waiting for us!
The Toyota Hiace van was well laid out and has everything you need. Struggled a little up some of the hills but otherwise surprisingly sprightly, yet economical.
We only had two problems ( a noisy cooling fan on the fridge and dud cigarette lighter) but one phone call and it was sorted the next day.
Very friendly and helpful service throughout. Only improvement would have been an aux in on the stereo and more fly screens to enable more windows to open at night.
I love the van.. Nice and tidy, good price and an excellent service!!! Thanks..!
Straightforward to organise. Very friendly pick-up and collection. Any problems were dealt with straight away, no fuss. Lovely, clean and functional little Toyota HiAce with loads of storage space. I really liked the fact that I was hiring a white campervan with no bright colours/huge logo/tasteless jokes plastered all over it (unlike some NZ campervans) so I could blend in with the locals.
The mark of a good company is how they deal with a problem, because even the best companies sometimes experience problems beyond their control. I was more than happy with the response from Nick @ Camperco to the little problem we had and would thoroughly recommend them to any one wanting to hire a Campervan in South Island
Camperco exceeded my expectations. Not only did they provide the absolute best value for a camper rental, they went above and beyond with customer service. We left a headlamp in the van and guess what showed up in the mail all the way accross the world today! No telling what it cost them to mail it to the US. The camper van was clean and functional and we had an absolutely fabulous trip. I highly recommend Camperco.
Really good, stress free experience dealing with the guys at Camperco. They dropped-off and picked-up at the destinations we asked and communicated superbly during the process.
I would highly recommend it for a cost effective way to get around the South Island.
I would definitely use them again.
Good communicating and organizing. Reliable, nice van. Recommend :)
We had a wonderful experience with CamperCo. Staff was very friendly, and flexible. The Estima was quite small but it was very well equipped, cozy, and they set it up to make great use of the space available. It was also the best deal on a campervan that we found in the South Island, especially considering the fact that we had different pick up and drop off locations.
Hired an Estima converted people carrier - not like a campervan (it is nifty to drive and cheap but not spacious), more like a posh tent you don't have to put up (it has fridge, cooker, hob etc).
Really helpful on the emails. Provided a lot of useful information before we arrived. A camperco guy met us at the airport for free which was sweet. Great van, easy to drive. Had a good experience with this company. Thanks. Missing NZ!
We had a fab time in our campervan. We hired a hiace for 2 of us as we wanted that little extra room and it gave us what we wanted. CamperCo went out of their way to let us hire a van out of their usual season which was great. We loved that we didn't stand out like a sore thumb like most of the other companies vans. We like camping in tents every where but as it was May we decided to hire a camper and we have definitely been converted and are thinking about buying one ourselves! The only very minor downside was we could of done with a heater but we were quite well prepared with a thick blanket and sleeping bags! The campers were very well equipped they had everything that you would need and were really comfortable at a good price.
They are really good at sorting any problems we had. They are based in Nelson so if you are close by it is easy for them to sort out. We were just unlucky and needed to change campers.
Note: much more detail and pictures in our blog: http://teammahoney.wordpress.com/2012/02/09/the-only-way-to-travel-in-new-zealand/
We loved CamperCo, for a few reasons.
1) The price was right. For way under $100 per night we got the van and the full insurance (often 40% more than the rental price). We also only had to pay $50 for a one way rental from Picton to Christchurch which can increase the price of other vans by hundreds of dollars.
2) they picked us up at our Ferry and let us drop off at our hotel in Christchurch. Small company = increased flexibility
3) The van was very new and reliable, much more so than some of the others we saw on the road
4) There is no branding on the van (like the purple and green painted jucy vans for example...) so your not flashing "hi! I'm a traveler with all my belongings inside!" and you don’t feel like a target for a break in every time you leave for a hike.
Also we were very happy with the size of our vehicle and concluded it was the perfect choice for two people. While it was a bit smaller than some of the other vans out there, it was nice to drive around town and through windy country roads in a normal sized vehicle rather than a big boat. Plus gas is expensive in NZ, so we appreciated the fuel economy of our model.
If you are in the search for VALUE FOR YOUR MONEY with personal pleasant service and a satisfied happy experience ...... Go Camperco !
This is not an Advetisement.
Our great holiday centered around our Camper supplied with all the equiment we needed, coupled with the beauty of the breathtaking landscapes and freedom camping.
Support the people who care, not the faceless corporations !!!
We rented a van from CamperCo and travelled around the South Island for about 10 days. We were so impressed with CamperCo, so friendly and always went out of their way to provide brilliant service. The van was clean, comfortable, easy to drive, economical on fuel and had everything we needed. I couldn't have been happier with our experience and would recommend anyone wanting a Campervan in the South Island to use Camperco. Thanks very much, guys! All the best.
We were looked after very well by all staff at camperco, pickup was very convenient at ferry terminal, camper van in good condition, clean and tidy, friendly staff. Although unfortunately our vehicle encountered a mechanical problem, this was smoothly resolved and we are very happy with the service we received.
I relocated a vehicle for CamperCo from Nelson to Christchurch. It was my 1st relocation through TransferCar. The vehicle was being cleaned inside and out, had been fully fueled when I arrived ready for me dropping off in Christchurch. Details were provided for the drop-off address. A good experience
We had an amazing honeymoon, largely thanks to the amazing camper - what a perfect experience! The people with CamperCo could not have been nicer, and we were totally stocked with the perfect vehicle to get everywhere.....thanks so much for a lovely time!
My wife and I just arrived in New Zealand for holiday and our first experience traveling and sleeping here was with a CamperCo van. Everything was convenient with the van, from having road maps in the vehicle to dishes and quite a comfortable sleeping space. Thanks CamperCo!
Great team, good communication, the van is almost new, all is included so we dont need anything else, and it's very cheap for the quality. Thank you camperco :)
After spending numerous hours researching camper hire companies i found Camper Co came out on top in terms of price and flexibility of dates/drop off.
The actual experience could not have been better. Our van was equipped with everything you could possibly need and was very efficient petrol wise.
These guys run a first class operation and would i recommend them to anyone
Thanks Camper Co.
Fantastic company, great service and great van. The van was pretty fuel-efficient, around $200 for nearly 1000kms. The customer service I received was fantastic - they even hand-delivered the camera I left in it by accident! Very highly recommended.
Very recommnded! Great campervan with all you need and actually very good for fuel. You were very flexible when we had to change our drop off location. Thank you!
We had an absolutely wonderful experience! Grateful I made the decision to go with you, after some hair pulling last minute research on how best to explore the S. Island. Certainly the best value for money. You are so accommodating and considerate, allowing us to collect the van at 8am on Xmas day! The flexibility of not having to go all the way to Nelson but collect/drop off in Chch, otherwise quite a reasonable charge as well. The options with the van are limitless i.e. tent/power/no-power site, motel/hotel, wilderness camping, etc. Waking up by the beach, coffee at the lake, star gazing by van's doorstep in the alpine region (best new year's eve ever, esp with a shooting star). Van’s easy to manoeuvre. The heavy rains didn't deter us - my husband figured out how to set up your table inside! How else can you witness the sunny spots in stormy weather & dine in style? We couldn't stop thinking of various configuration of the van. The sunroof - wonderful as we fell asleep star gazing. The compact cooler practical, kept our milk, butter, deli and herbs fresh throughout the trip. We thought it was fuel efficient considering the distance we've driven. Pleasantly surprised how comfy the mattress was - compared with that of a new campervan model we rented recently. Well equipped with practical tips, all cooking utensils, solar light&shower, picnic blanket, awning (we never figured out how to use), comfy linen, picnic table (we also used as headboard for privacy) and chairs.
Aside from petrol and food, don't forget matches, cooking oil, cleaning stuff, sunblock and most importantly - insect repellant! May we also suggest a small brush and dustpan for cleaning and kettle (we survived with the pot though). Haidee, Nick and the rest of the CamperCo - thanks for giving travellers like us the novelty of true NZ roadtrip at a reasonable price. We definitely recommend your company. Keep up the good work and all the best this year and years to come.
Hi Nick, i ll rather place a 9/10....... so u ll have a room for improvement dude!!....
There are tons of campervan ard in NZ, but ultimately at the end of the day, gd service made a long lasting impression for your holiday.
i could proudly said that this guy deliver man!!
On time, friendly, flexible and helpful.
The van itself is self sustaining for your whole trip. All you need is petrol and food ...... hop on the Estima and explore NZ in ur own style. Everything was clean, tidy and worry free!!
The best part of it is .... its neither a van nor a car, i dont find it difficult to park at any hotel lobby.
Ok here are some tips that maybe u can consider.....
External plugs to connect the battery to the powered site.
In all, i have a very wonderful honeymoon, hope u ll have a great years ahead man. Stay humble as ure dude!!
Absolutely AWESOME! The campervan was fantastic - was clean and tidy and had everything in it that we needed. Van was really good value too, such a good deal. The CamperCo crew were fab to deal with, really friendly, excellent communication, made everything really easy - thanks guys! I would highly recommend CamperCo to anyone needing a campervan to cruise around NZ in.
Been travelling in camper vans for the past 3 months and this was by far our best experience.. great vans, extremely helpful staff, unbelieveable value..! I'd def recommend this company to any one! Had no problems with the van whatsoever, incredibly reliable and very comfortable.. I miss it :-) Thanks CamperCo!
Highly recommend these guys! Their service is second to none, couldn't have had a better experience. Totally flexible about pick ups and drop-offs, and their price really can't be beaten seriously!! The van's themselves are both spacious and comfy, and have everything you could possibly need for a tour around the south island. It is a great plus point that they operate from Picton and Nelson meaning you can eliminate the cost of bringing a van over on the ferry. The staff are super friendly and a refreshing change from the bigger companies operating in NZ. I would highly recommend them and will definately use again if I make it back to south island!! Cheers Camperco!!
For service and vehicle reliability these guys rock! OK you won't get the same mileage as a small rental car but then you can't sleep in one of those can ya?
I put the van through some punishing terrain and it rose to the challenge every time (except deep snow - no surprises there eh!)
Friendly and helpful, down to earth staff too. Would gladly recommend and use again.
Nice Campervans with every Stuff you need to travel. It's not very complicated, you pay and you get a great car. Friendly and flexible owners.
We strongly recommend this company and we think it's still the cheapest.
Thanks Michael and Matthias, you guys were great. Glad you had a cool road trip! Haidee @ CamperCo
Totally satisfied. We traveled around the South Island and all the way down the West Coast without a problem. Vans are comfy and nice to drive, we didn't want to give it back! Would recommend to anyone, thanks guys!
Thanks for coming on down to the South Island to see what she has to offer Angus. Sorry the weather was a little difficult! Haidee @ camperco
CamperCo is a great company and were an absolute pleasure to rent from. During my 3 weeks in New Zealand a friend and I rented a campervan from CamperCo for 12 days while touring the south island. After putting on 3500 kilometers we never experienced any troubles with any part of the van or campervan experience. I highly recommend using a campervan to tour NZ and would select CamperCo again in a heartbeat. They were waiting outside the ferry terminal to drop of the van as soon as we walked off the ferry in Picton and then were at the Christchurch airport to pick up the van just as scheduled. As far is the van is concerned the company provides everything. The only thing that we needed to purchase was food. Again, I have no reservations about recommending this company to friends and giving them a fantastic review. If ever in New Zealand again, using CamperCo will be at the top of my travel plans.
That's a fantastic review Greg, we can't say enough about you either! You guys were great. Haidee @ CamperCo
Good Value, Great service, the van was reliable and to be honest had everything we needed although it was a petrol guzzler which could have been expected. Overall had good experience with this company and would recommend to others looking for a budget option.
Thank you for the feedback. We're glad you had a good experience with us! With regard to the petrol consumption of the van: our Toyota Estima's get 100km to every 9L of petrol which is standard for this model of car. Many of our customers tell us how economical they found the van so it seems there are varying opinions out there!
Once again thanks, and I hope we can sort you out again sometime. Haidee @ CamperCo
