PiwiWiwi might have a silly name, but we're totally serious about New Zealand road trips.
Our campervans are fully kitted out to comfortably transport you around New Zealand checking everything our country has to offer (beaches, walks, waterfalls, vineyards, or museums - whatever floats your particular boat...)
We have vans tall enough to stand up in yet small enough to park easily. They are all well equipped - we've been campervanning for years, so know what you need and what gets in the way - you just need to bring your clothes, buy some food, and you're away. Our vans have stereos that you can plug your iPod into (you can’t have a road trip without a soundtrack) and USB charging points to keep your gadgets full of juice. For all you surfers - we're also the only company in NZ with surfboard stroage straps in our vans to keep your boards safely out of your way when you're not in the waves. For cyclists - we have bike racks for our vans too.
All of our vans are certified SELF CONTAINED so you have access to NZ's beautiful FREEDOM CAMPING spots.
Our customers seem to be happy with what we do... why not give us a go too?

A fantastic experience from booking to end, easy booking service with quick response to questions and happy to help attitude. Was pleased to be able to rent with a local company that had competitive rates that matched some of the bigger in the industry.
The van es fantastic with no hidden extras, came with everything I needed for a month on the road, the fridge was incredibly efficient and never had issues with having power. It's relatively fuel efficient and being able to stand at full height makes such a difference especially on days that were a little colder.
They had an open, honest and fair policy around Covid and a great pick-up drop off service from Christchurch.
All the van facilities were great and spacious, yet in a van that fitted in regular car spaces and was easy to drive.
Nick was great, checked in half way through my journey and I had an option to extend whilst I was on the road.
Would recommend to anyone, and it's definitely the best way to see New Zealand
Honestly couldn't have asked for a better camper for 1 or 2 people. Really high quality finish with an awesome layout. I've never stayed in a camper before so the pick up from my hostel and the awesome walkthrough of the van was very much appreciated. More importantly a small family owned company. If I'm ever traveling the south island again it will be my first choice rental company.

Took the van on a great road trip down the West Coast of South Island. Stayed in a mixture of freedom and paysites. Had a great time. Van was cosy and comfy - very clean. The van is well equipped- lot of thought gone in to make it an optimal travel/stay-mobile. It allowed us to enjoy all of the delights of the Coast- mostly in brilliant sunshine, but was weather-tight when we had a short shower of rain ( only about a 12th of the annual rainfall fell lie 1metre) Couldn't have rainforest and glaciers without a bit of wet stuff !

We hired a campervan from Piwiwiwi for 5 weeks during July and August 2020 before moving back to the UK. We had already had an amazing 3 week experience in 2018 when we first arrived in NZ and it is fair to say that Nick and Piwiwiwi delivered again. Customer service is brilliant with airport pick up and drop off as well as extensive explanation on how everything works in the van. Nick also provided extra blankets, hot water bottles and a fan heater for those cold winter nights. The vans have been upgraded since the last time we hired from them and the new layout makes use of the space very efficiently with a comfortable lounge/dining area that turns in to a very big double bed. All in all it was a brilliant experience and I would definitely use Piwiwiwi again. Many thanks to Nick and his family. Charles and Sophie.
PiwiWiwi was awesome! I can't recommend Nick and his campers high enough! The van was easy to drive, well maintained and zero road issues. It was comfortable, warm and had absolutely everything you need and set up in a way that was easy to use and utilize the van space. Nick was extremely knowledgeable and gave us some great tips. Highly highly recommend these guys! And it feels great to be able to support a local family owned business as well!

Nick, Julie, and kids (the family behind PiwiWiwi) epitomize Kiwi hospitality. Whether you're looking to rent a campervan, purchase a van, or build out / modify a van, we highly endorse PiwiWiwi. They are straight-forward, honest, helpful, and kind. We were first introduced (virtually) as we started our search for a rental campervan in May 2019. Ultimately we went with a campervan purchase for our 4 month road trip of NZ. Nick found us the van based on our requirements, coordinated the sale, stored the van until we arrived, kitted out the van with goodies, and the kids even named the van for us. We finally got to meet the PiwiWiwi family in real life in January 2020 when we started our travels. Obviously 2020 is turning out to be no ordinary year. Fast forward to September 2020 and, besides the lockdown period, we're still going strong in our van and couldn't be happier. Throughout this challenging year, Nick and family have been there for advice, recommendations, and much more. We are grateful to be able to call the PiwiWiwi family our NZ family.
Could not recommend these guys more! Amazing service, very knowledgable and lovely to deal with. The campervan was super clean and in great condition. Comes with everything you could need. They go above and beyond to make sure you have a great experience. Will 100% be returning for another trip!
We had the pleasure of renting a Campervan from Nick and his family on our first ever campervan trip. The whole experience ran smoothly and completely converted us to the campervan holidaying life. Nick gave a very thorough intro and was always available to text or call for any further info or help throughout the trip. The campervan was GREAT, excellent layout very clean and obviously well maintained. Would thoroughly recommend Piwiwiwi to anyone especially if new to campervaning was reassuring to know you had someone on hand to help you out!
