Exceptional service and great quality camper vans

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 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

We are so happy we found these guys. Everything about their company is wonderful, from our first email contact to our farewell at the end of our two week jaunt around NZ, so friendly, easy and supportive. I cannot recommend them enough. Whether you are a surfer or not, it's a very comfortable, fun and affordable way to see New Zealand, everything you require is provided, just turn up with, boards and bags and away you go.

If you're thinking about which company to choose for your camper van road trip in New Zealand then look no further, PiwiWiwi is everything you'll want!

Anna and Niall are extremely helpful and kind, they will do as much as they can to assist you on your holiday and make sure that you have a great experience. The vans are fantastically well equipped, comfortable and a pleasure to drive, plus you can get a surfboard that tucks away nicely!!

Overall we had a perfect holiday road trip in a PiwiWiwi van and we would most definitely use them again. Get in contact with Anna and Niall, you wont regret it!

25 days hire & 25 mini adventures in our amazing wee Piwiwiwi campervan! We would recommend Piwiwiwi Campervans to anyone - Anna and Niall's friendly, helpful and personal service made our holiday stress free and so so enjoyable! Our van was comfy (perfect nights sleep every night!), practical (plenty of space to store all your stuff) and ideal for exploring off the beaten track when the tourist trail becomes too much! You won't regret booking a van from these guys :-)

Having just returned from exploring New Zealand for 20 days in our rented PiwiWiwi, Base Jumper S2 campervan I have to say that the experience with PiwiWiwi was excellent. Our plan was to kayak as much as we could in 20 days. I had brought with me my Firstlight Seakayak and my friend had rented a Firstlight. PiwiWiwi was kind enough to install a kayak rack on the Basejumper 2 to accommodate us. We found Niall and Anna (owners of PiwiWiwi) were very gracious, informative and patient. The van was exceptionally comfortable and had a fantastic ergonomic layout. Exploring New Zealand in a PiwiWiwi campervan was a wonderful experience and I recommend it fully.

We are two students from Sweden and we looked and looked for a company that was reliable and affordable and most important hassel free.
As we scanned rankers and various sites it became obvious that hiring a camper for a resonable price and no hassels (hidden fees etc) was harder than expected. "We've read quite the bit of horror stories"

We finally took the advise from the reviewes on rankers and rented a campervan from piwiwiwi, the mail contact was superb, explaining everything and answering our questions and giving us advise.

Got picked up from the airport by the happy Niall =)
At their house we got everthing explaind and a tour of the camper. You see they are a small company with only 7 or so campers so they take good care of them and their costumers.

And off we drove, for 70 days not a problem and we drove for 10000 km, had the time of our lives.
If you just dont want to worry about your holiday, rent from Piwiwiwi.

We hired Piwiwiwi's Fiat Ducato large campervan for just under 3 weeks in Nov/Dec 2012. The van was superbly equipped and drove beautifully. Despite it's size we had no problems taking it wherever we wanted to go. The level of service from Piwiwiwi is exemplary, something the larger companies fail to achieve. Not just for surfers!

We rented a campervan for 1 week to travel throughout the North Island. Overall we had a wonderful experience. Anna and Niall were very flexible with the pick-up location. They were also very helpful and accommodating when we had a bit of car trouble and made getting us back on the road a priority. The van was very clean and tidy, and had everything we needed to travel comfortably. And, it was the best deal we could get on a van for such a small amount of time. We'll definitely rent from the the next time we visit New Zealand, which we hope will be soon!

I've used PiwiWiwi vans twice and a car once for 3 awesome roadtrips around the North Island. And what can I say except PERFECT! :) Very helpful to start with giving you lots of ideas what to see and do about the areas you're going to, to then provide you with all the info material and maps that you need to go there. The vans are fantastic especially if there is two people travelling with all the equipment for cooking, bedding and everything else you can possibly think of to make you feel very cozy during your travels. Prices are the cheapest that I have had in all of NZ ... so go for it and ask them about a free GPS.

Hi! I rented a campervan from PiwiWiwi for a 21 day road trip with my new husband on our honeymoon! We found out about PiwiWiwi through a friend who lives in Raglan! After researching several different companies, it came down to more than just a great price, it was the one-on-one experience we got from people who love life, exploring, and enjoying every day like we do. Anna and Niall answered every question and helped us plan our trip. When we arrived, we received an amazing welcome which set the stage for a fantastic honeymoon.

We rented the standard size campervan and it was perfect! Even during the coldest nights, we were cozy and comfortable. The vans are not "just" for surfers. We travelled with our bikes and rented a bike rack from PiwiWiwi. They hooked us up with a mountain biking guide book for NZ and we made use of it everywhere we went. The vans have plenty of compartments to organize and stowe your gear so you are able to relax, drink a beer, and eat a great meal you just prepared without staring at your muddy bike shoes.

We highly recommend PiwiWiwi. You get personal assistance and support from the moment you first contact them. They want you to have the best trip ever and when you land in NZ, ready to start your adventure, they greet you with a huge hello like you're old friends and you can't help but being excited to get in the van, and start exploring!

We found these guys online whist searching for car hire before we came to NZ. Very very promt/friendly emails and great prices not only on the car hire but on airport pick up as well!
The car we hired was nice and new, in great condition and drove great. The owners of PiwiWiwi are very friendly and helpfull and will answer any questions you have (we had loads as just landed in the country). They both surf and gave us some good tips on lacal breaks to check out.
Overall..... With the airport pick up, easy and hastle free car rental, I will be recomending PiwiWiwi to other friends that wish to travel around New Zealand. Thanks guys for making our first couple of weeks stress free!

Anna & Niall were fantastic & had thought of everything to make our trip a stress-free holiday from the minute we arrived in Auckland.
On the drive to Raglan we were able to completely relax & enjoy the scenery while Niall gave us a few tips about travelling around this stunning country. Then we met Anna who introduced us to our campervan from end to end, covering everything we needed to know.
Raglan was a great jumping off point & these two are a wealth of knowledge. They are like people we had met on the road rather than people we were doing business with. We're very glad they were recommended to us!
