Lynda, Duncan and family gave us a fabulous introduction to NZ and camping with their personal service and excellently fitted out van.
They instantly made us feel at home and went way beyond to make the experience as easy as possible.
The vehicle ran faultlessly for our 2700km trip and was a pleasure to drive. Our sleeper van fitted with the side awning was the envy of other campers that had rented from other big name companies.
The stock swap allowed us to get going without having to buy lots of bits and pieces. We were happy to pass on our remaining stock for the next campers.
I can not recommend them too much! They contributed to a fabulous holiday.

My daughter and I rented the Toyota Alphard sleepervan - fully self-contained certified - for a 5 week travelling vacation in New Zealand. I picked the vehicle up in Auckland and dropped it off in Christchurch. Transportation to and from the airport was provided and was a seamless experience. The vehicle was well appointed with all needed equipment and supplies. It was the perfect set-up for us and was a great way to see NZ. I loved working with Lynda. She was so attentive and responsive to my questions before arriving in New Zealand and while travelling in this beautiful country. When I finally met Lynda at the end of our trip, I felt like she was family. A family run business that treats you with respect and care. Couldn't ask for more!

Me and my partner hired an alphard sleepervan for 23 days in auckland and drop off in christchurch. The trip through the north and south island through to christchurch went without a single issue with the van. The cooking facilities and equipment was great. Often better than campsite shared facilities. The fridge was a must have in my opinion. We travelled nearly 5000km on our trip and were very happy with the van. Easy to set up and very cozy. Have already recommended this company to other travellers.

We rented a camper from Affordable Motor Home Rentals for a months road trip around the South Island in February.
Communication via email was always courteous and efficient and we were delighted to be collected from our accomodation in Christchurch and taken to the depot where a clear and comprehensive introduction to our vehicle was given.
Though one of the smaller car derived campers it was perfectly fitted and equipped to provide both comfort and convenience. The vehicle was in excellent working condition and served us without incident throughout our extensive touring adventures.
Returning the vehicle was as pleasant and straightforward an experience as at the start with a friendly chat with our hosts whilst being dropped off at our accomodation in town.
This is a well established family business that provided us with an excellent rental service at a most reasonable price and has certainly made our Kiwi experience all the richer.
Thank you so much..Jonathan and Laura

A pleasure to deal with Lynda and Ben at Affordable Motor homes. The camper was set up comfortably for two people. It was clean and organized. Lynda was quick with email replies both before and after booking. We had no issues with the camper. I had done extensive research, the price was fair and competitive. They were very accommodating in regard to transport to and from their depot. Hope you get to have a wonderful experience, as I had, with this company.

I would have loved to give Affordable a 10. Communication with Lynda was great and probably if you pick up at Christchurch everything will be perfect.
But the pick up station in Auckland (Otahuhu) is not managed by Affordable themselves and we were a bit unfortunate it seems. They didn't know anything about our arrangements with Lynda concerning duvets (we needed synthetic and no feathers for allergy reasons) and there was no GPS left in this office. So we had to start our trip against our planned direction to Auckland to a shopping area (not the most relaxing experience when it's your first time driving a bus and on the left side of the road) to buy a GPS which we got refunded. Later we found out that one of the two cookers wasn't working.
On the south island our beloved 1999-2003 campervan (bed in rear layout is fantastic!) caught a little cold when the temperature was under 10 degrees in the night. So we needed a little push in the mornings from fellow campers.
And in the end we found out that the guys in Otahuhu had given us the completely wrong paperwork with a wrong returning office address. So if I hadn't double checked with Lynda before drop off we would have turned up at a totally wrong company to return the van.
In Christchurch we got to get know Lynda in person and the drop off was a very good experience. She even gave us a lift to the accommodation we stayed at in Christchurch.
Despite all that happened we still think it is a good company. small and family based. Next time we'll book again with them and come to pick up the van in Christchurch. ;-)

Affordable Motor Homes have a great team that took great care of us and we recommend their service. Thank you very much! Their motorhomes are 10+ years old but do their job with slight minuses. In our 4-berth sitting in the back was not too comfy, the cushions are too soft for a long ride and the children seats were standing crooked because of that. Cupboard doors kept opening when riding bumpy roads so we closed them with straps. We got the BBQ for free but we used it only once as it took forever to fry. The locks for the outside cupboards are old and worn and opening them can be tricky. Other than that everything was fine.

Renting from Affordable Motorhomes was a fantastic experience. In total we rented for 7 weeks, we had a toyota hiace with bed in the middle. In total they have about 49 vans/RV's of different sizes/makes. We were a couple travelling with a 1 year old. Lynda and her team were absolutely amazing, I couldnt recommend them more. Affordable motorhomes is a medium sized family run business and you could feel the personal touch through the entire rental and prep, you get personal attention and she really listens to what you want, flexible with options and not pushy like the big companies. Lynda was very communicative through the whole process, you could literally reach her anytime. She helped to explain options and was very flexible with our changing dates, she even allowed us to pick it up a day later and change res just the day before. She picked us up and dropped us off from our hotel in christchurch, she spent over an hour personally just with us to make sure we understood everything about the van. The van itself was in great mechanical shape, in the 6 weeks we never had a single problem, it was a slightly older model than what you get from juicy or the like, but in very good shape and never missed a beat. It was equipped with a solar panel and LPG heater, we never had to plug into power in the 6 weeks. During the rental she was always available to help clarify questions about the van as we got settled in. We extended our trip by a week and rented a second van from them, the Ford Transit model, we were also very happy with it. One evening the house battery went out at 6pm, as typical with her she was always available. I called Lynda and she was able to get a new battery their by 10am the next morning. I couldnt recommend Affordable homes more, in the end it felt like renting from a friend rather than being just another number at a bigger company. I will for sure recommend them to any friends I know who would like to book a van in NZ.

After making a thourough search between multiple companies, we chose Affordable, sleeper van Alphard which absolutely met our wishes during our 2 months trip in NZ. Booking the car was clear and there were no hidden extra costs. By pickup everything looked very neat and we got a clear explanation how to use the grey/white water tank, portaloo and instruments inside. A simcard was provided by the company as well.
During our trip, we had 2 minor accidents with the car, which were taken care of by Lydia at once. Once we called her, she phoned back in half an hour and had arranged a garage on our route so we wouldn't loose any extra time.
Affordable Motor home is a small family company which you notice in just that little bit of extra service which, for us, added to a troublefree holliday.

We had a great experience renting from affordable motor home rentals. We came for 3 weeks in December and rented a minivan camper van that had been remodeled inside to have everything we needed! The car was super reliable and the service was awesome and personable. It's a family owned and operated business and you could really feel the difference- the owners were incredibly nice and really cared about our experience. Definitely recommmend them!!

I rented a sleeper van for three weeks through the South Island and it was fantastic and at a good price. The set up was great (solar powered fridge especially) and the fact that it was self-contained really helped. It was an incredible trip!
