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?

Piwi wiwi surf campervans are awesom. We rented one for the weekend, we live in NZ, but just wanted a weekend away, and thought to try the campervan option. Piwi wiwi were so impressive, we had an amazing weekend. The vans are awesome, Niall and Anna are obviously seasoned campers, as they have thought of everything you will need, down to a NZ surf guide ( genius!!!) without over cramping the vans! The curtains are great, we actually slept in one morning!! so cozy! We were super surprised at how fuel efficient these vans were, and the rental was very reasonable for all you get. Niall and Anna are also super easy to deal with and really will try and accomodate your needs, no complaints at all, already planning our next trip, a longer one next time I reckon, thanks heaps, we are hooked!!!

We are so happy we decided to go with PiwiWiwi. As we were driving around NZ, we kept seeing other campervans pulled over in the rain trying to cook out the back, with surfboards stacked on the bed, laughing to ourselves that we were living in luxury and spending less money than they were. We drove the van all over both islands and it ran like a champ, bravely barreling down rutted dirt roads and through snowy mountain passes without a hitch. To top it off, Niall and Anna are awesome! They went out of their way to accommodate us. We will always rent from them and recommend that our friends do the same.

Every year Waikato District Council enters teams into the Oxfam trail walker, this is where teams of four all walk together for 100km! It is a long and gruelling event which requires a huge amount of support for the teams. This year we hired three of Piwiwiwi's camper vans - one to support each team. The support crews found the campers van extremely well stocked with everything we could need and the staff was exceptionally helpful in ensuring we had enough equipment (i.e. four plates) for each of our walkers at meal times. The hire process was straight forward and simple. We would be more happy to use the camper vans again. Excellent service.

My Girlfirend and I hired a PiwiWiwi Camper-van for a month to explore NZ and the customised van excelled in every way. The Van was very comfortable, reliable, clean and easy to live in. It was the little features that Niall and Anna have altered which set the vans apart. Things you would only notice once you have lived in a van for any length of time, but they make the biggest difference such as wet gear storage locker, internal board racks, a very user friendly kitchen and cupboard system which reduces clutter and makes life easy!

On the business side of things, as companies go they have to be one of the most professional and efficient, but while keeping the special small business personality and flexibility making them the best I've ever dealt with. Niall and Anna both went out of their way while handling our booking to make sure our trip would be the best it could be and took personal interest and care throughout the entire process.

We had an amazing time, scored amazing waves and made some outstanding friends and cant wait to come back! This all sounds too good to be true but It really is, I cant recommend this fantastic environmental concious company enough.

Thanks again Niall and Anna!

With the internet we all research.... too much sometimes. And then there comes along a company that takes it to a new level.. there is no system that can capture how incredible PiwiWiwi Surf Campervans produces. Working with Anna and Naill was easy, informative, and custom. They provided us with services that no other company would offer a first time campervan renter. They were quick to respond to every email and were there for us all along the way. The van was fully equiped with new, full functioning ammenities. All we had to do was show up. If you need anything imperticular...just ask. They are based in Raglan which is worth more than a day to stay over. The van gave us opportunities that we could have never imagined possible via naked bus and hostel shuffle. Email Anna, and tell her tomato Jennie sent you. They will change the way you think about service, give you a price that is unbeatable, and make you wish you will NEVER leave New Zealand. Thank you Anna and Niall from the bottom of our hearts. We can't wait to get the time off from uni for another trip!

PiwiWiwi rocks! Fantastic service, brilliant campervan features at a very competitive rate made our 'babymoon' around the East Cape a great experience.

The vans are tidy and robust with enough space for several surfboards and loads of luggage.

A big thank you to Anna an Niall!

My partner and I rented a campervan from Piwiwiwi for two months and it was definitely one of our best experiences ever!

Discovering New Zealand in a campervan was a perfect idea, and the van provided by Piwiwiwi offered exactly what we were looking for: well designed and reasonably priced!

Anna and Niall were absolutely great to deal with. We had a very friendly contact but that does not mean that they were not professional when needed.

As a surfer, the modifications made to the van made complete sense and were great additions. Niall and Anna were also very receptive to feedback, so I guess their service will become better and better!

We would totally recommend Piwiwiwi if you consider renting a campervan (and even if you are not interested by the surfing-oriented improvements).

Thanks Anna and Niall!

We hired a Piwiwi Camper van for almost 3 weeks. The owners of the company were extremely good to deal with, negotiating costs, pick up and drop off times, prompt and easy to communicate with. The vans are simple, very clean and conveniently fitted with a few extras aimed at surfers. I highly recommend Piwiwi and will use them again myself. Thanks Niall and Anna.

After I booked my ticket to NZ I had to figure out everything else from there…..rent a car, stay in Hotels / Hostels etc. After some checking around, it seemed a campervan was my best option because of the flexibility and ultimately the cost too. I was almost ready to book with a faceless company and hope all would work out. By luck, when checking out NZ surf stuff on Surfline, I saw PiwiWiwi’s advertisement and visited the website. The vibe was so different than all the others and really spoke to me. I emailed several questions and responses were always prompt and written as though I had a friend there vs. a vendor looking for my business. They even hooked me up with a great mountain bike which was a HUGE addition to my trip. I had a little challenge along the way, and they were super responsive in getting it taken care of…which is really the ultimate measure of a good company to work with because things are not always perfect.

As a surfer…..there are the obvious advantages of this vehicle but possibly the biggest advantage to me (someone who drives on the LEFT side of the road) was starting out in Raglan. Trust me, after a LONG flight you don’t want to try to learn this on the city streets of Auckland. As a surfer, you gotta check out Raglan for a few days anyway....so why not start there?

If you want to rent a campervan for your NZ adventure, definitely connect with PiwiWiwi and see what they can do for you….and have an incredible Journey!

Anna and Niall were so lovely and helpful when we rented the van - every base was covered and they are very passionate about their vans and travelling NZ!
We took a van for 5 days just for a mini tour and just loved our Piwiwiwi! Fully kitted out with everything you could need and clearly the design has been thought about. Perfect and compact.
We couldn't have picked a better company to use for our first Kiwi experience....loved them :)

Anna and Nial are amazingly friendly and helpful, they made the whole rental process a pleasure. They made time to give us some excellent recommendations on where to visit and stay.

We found the vans the perfect size for two, big enough to live in, with all mod cons, fridge, cooker etc so that we didnt need to eat out, topped off with an amazing nights sleep! They were also very easy to drive, handling like a car, which is important on New Zealand's beautiful but sometimes challenging roads. To top it off, they were great value, with extremely competitive prices.

We did not use the surf board customisations as we were on honeymoon, but I am seriously considering learning to surf so that we can try them out when we return new year!
