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?

We hired a van off piwiwiwi for just under 2 months between January & February. We explored both islands and absoutely loved our campervan. We could not have hoped for better service. Anna and Niall we're both extremely helpful. Would not hesitate to use them again. Can't wait to go back!

These guys know what it is about. You are not just hiring a vehicle, but it is your home for your stay in New Zealand. (In our case 2 months) These guys are very hospitable, making you feel right at home in your campervan.
We chose a small rental company, because we have had bad experiences with big companies. We have made the right choice. Anna and Niall gave us a great service; car drop-off at the hotel, let us leave the stuff that would get in the way, and drop us off at the airport.
The campervan is very complete. All the stuff you need is onboard. A water tank, stove and oven is all on board.
We had just one minor problem with air conditioning that was fixed in a minute. Piwiwiwi immediately offered us compensation without asking for it.
Next time we go to New Zealand, we will probably choose Piwiwiwi again.

There is no better way to travel across NZ than a PiwiWiwi campervan. Do not waste your time searching all over the internet. You will end up saving a little money but missing service and answers to your questions. Anna and Niall from PiwiWiwi gave a lot of tips and offer an airport pickupservice so you do not have to drive jetlagged on the wrong side of the road. Their homebase Raglan is a great spot to start and stop your trip.
I just returned from a 3 month trip through both the North and South Islands with my girlfriend, 63 days of the trip were spent in a Piwiwiwi Campervan. I'm happy to say the experiences we had would not have been the same without the support and unmatched customer service of Anna and Niall. From the first inquiry call with them, to the flexibility and support they provided us with when we had to adjust our dates due to a family emergency, and finally to the trip itself, Anna and Niall were there for us every step of the way and were truly a pleasure to work with.
The van had been recently serviced and we did not experience any issues at all throughout the duration of our drive. We drove the van everyday and were extremely pleased with the flexibility it gave us to move and camp at our own leisure. On top of that the van was perfectly set up to charge our electronics and play our music off our MP3 players with the help of the upgraded stereo.
We chose Piwiwiwi because we felt that they were reasonably priced, and as a younger adventurous couple, we believed in the vision that Anna and Niall have for their company. Their relatively smaller (by quantity) fleet allows them to provide unbelievable customer service as well as unique experiences and advice catered to their clients. It was a privilege working with them, and if you have the opportunity to visit them in Raglan and rent a van you won't be disappointed. Just be careful, because once you get to Raglan you may not want to leave!
We had a fabulous completely carefree and comfortable trip and we have PiwiWiwi to thank for it! Our van was super functional and comfortable and the boudoir had heaps of clean comfy bedding which was just awesome to pile into after a days adventures.
The vans exceeded our expectations with heaps of space to take all our kite and surfing gear, with ample space left over - even though we started the trip with 3 boards and ended with 6! ;)
But the best part of the service was how easily it all came together, with minimum planning we were sent off on our adventure with a smile and a pile of surfing magazines to get us hyped. Pickup the night before so you can leave early? No problem! Drop off the morning after so you can arrive home late? Sweet as! Try getting that sort of service elsewhere!
Such a good experience that we now plan our holidays around where we can take a piwiwiwi van!
Home for about a month now and still dreaming about our trip! The van made our trip extra special with no destination in mind we experienced so much more of NZ. Every time we made a wrong turn we had our best adventures. Piwi wiwi made everything easy and the van was very comfortable and drove excellent. My only comment about our experience is there really is no free camping in coastal towns be prepared to drive out of those towns to find better camp grounds we found some great family run campgrounds, the campgrounds in town were not what we wanted our NZ adventure to be. Thanks again piwi wiwi for all your help in making our trip one of our best!
PiwiWiwi was and excellent experience from start to finish and beyond. Prior to arriving, the owners answered several questions for us via email or telephone promptly. We were picked up at the airport right on time. The paperwork was easy and quick both pick up and drop off. The car was clean and well maintained. The owners continued to answer any and all questions we had about the area, traveling and getting things done. They are very nice, flexible with travel arrangements and easy to communicate with. An overall great experience. Good Travels!
Well id give 11 out of 10 if i could. These guys really are the business there vans are top quailty really good condition fully equipped and super comfy. With other companies you get the van then you have to pay for everything else with Piwi they just kit it out all included in price. Ive rented from numerous companies in NZ but ill only rent from these guys from now on. Jump on the bus to hamiltion and its that easy....no excuses if you want the best campers in nz!!! Ps the owners are legends and genuinely just ant you to enjoy ur time there :-)
PiwiWiwi makes your NZ experience truly amazing! Renting a car/van/board/etc from Anna and Niall is the best thing you can do. Don't worry about getting to Raglan! You have to see this beautiful surf town anyway - so why not start your NZ trip here?
I asked them for a specific board and since they didn't have it, they organised two different ones for me to chose from. If you need tips or advices, just ask them. The cars and vans are in great condition and the prices are low - great value! Thank you Anna and Niall :)
We rented a van for 3 weeks in January and were so happy that we had chosen PiwiWiwi. It´s definitely worth to spend the extra money. From the first email we sent them with all our questions Niall and Anna really took the time to explain us everything with the insurance, how the van is working and so on. We highly recommend PiwiWiwi. And a big THANK YOU for picking up the towels we forgot in the hostel :-) Niall and Anna really go the extra mile to ensure their customers have a great time.
Piwiwiwi was recommended to me by a friend who's living in Raglan, and i was not disappointed at all! Niall and Anna are providing you with a serious and very well equipped vehicle. I rent a car for 5 weeks for me and my family visiting, and as we had to much stuff they bought a roofbox especially for us, bringing it to us 300km from their home, just to make sure that our trip will be good... And it was awesome! They expect you to spend a good time in new zealand and do the most they can to help you achieve this goal. And they even give you a ride back to the place you want to get to when you give back the car. Sincerely you can trust these guys, I'm very thanksfull to them. It's more intimate and simple than big rental company and you are dealing with helpful and nice people. Piwiwiwi: much more than wicked!
We were in a PiwiWiwi van for 40+ days with an infant, and could not have been more comfortable. Anna and Niall completed our NZ experience. Those vans are well maintained and can do anything (perfect size for NZ roads)! We had prompt and helpful communication right from the word go. The bed was roomy and there is tons of storage for all the stuff you brought and wound up not needing! We had an amazing adventure, made possible by Anna and Niall. We will remember our beloved van!!! Thank you PiwiWiwi! Steph, Tyler and Addie
We had a fantastic 70-day adventure exploring NZ's coasts, mountains, and spectacular geography. Renting a van from PiwiWiwi was one of the best decisions we made. Initially we planned on buying a van and selling it when leaving, but after hearing horror stories, we decided to rent, and couldn't have found a better company.
Niall and Anna were sincerely interested in us having a good time. Niall even sent me a couple of surf forecast updates knowing that I got skunked on waves earlier in the trip. You're not going to get that service from any other rental company. The vans are thoughtfully dialed-in with everything you could need.
We recommend PiwiWiwi without reservation and only wish that all business interactions could be so pleasant. 11 out of 10 - Paul + Alex
