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.

So this year, we returned to New Zealand, but this time, to the South island. Each time for our visit to NZ, this is the only company we would hire a camper from. Linda and her family, are so friendly and could not be more helpful. You absolutely get what you pay for and more, as they look after their own vans. Very few camper van/motorhome hire companies are family owned, so please always check, as a number of them are owned by huge companies and then the money does not actually stay in NZ.
Once again, thank you Linda & family for all your patience and assistance.

Rental staff and the owner were very friendly and helpful when sorting out problems. The car itself had a fair mileage but went without major issues for 6000km across NZ. In comparison to other rental companies I found the terms, pricing and insurance most suitable to my needs.

Just loved the service at Affordable motorhomes and the motorhome was comfortable and excellent service available. I 100% recommend them for your next road trip.
Just one feedback - will be great if we could have an automatic 4 berth transmission motorhome as an option as well.
Excellent service, very friendly staff and great vehicle - loved the trip!

We hired the van at Christchurch to travel to Tekapo and surrounds. This company and people are fabulous to deal with and make the process easy. I would highly recommend using Affordable Motor Home Rentals. We were very cosy in our van and it was just what we needed for the trip. Thank you team.

My husband and I rented 2 berth Compact 2004/08 model(auto) for 14 days. The model is old but overall everything was good and we were happy with it. One of the complaint we would like to highlight is the hot shower which was heated by gas was quite slow and it did not last long. And also, the gas stove knot need to be hold for at least 10 secs in order to light up the gas stove. Lynda is friendly and helpful. Love the free pick up/drop off from/to airport service.

Affordable Motor Homes is a great New Zealand company. We received very personal communication and service both before, at rental time, and during our 23 day rental when we had questions or needed help. We would highly recommend the company to anyone. The vehicle we rented was one of their older model (2007) Toyota Hiace Campervans. Everything worked well and we didn’t have any problems.

However, I will caution that you do get what you paid for. In our case the vehicle was extremely slow going up steep hills (40 km/hr max), had sluggish acceleration, was fairly cumbersome to drive, and because of the age the fuel consumption was very poor. The company offers a lot of different options, including newer vehicles that I’m sure would have performed better. Next time we would definitely pay a bit more for a better vehicle.

We rent the sleepervan ( Toyota Estima) for one month during March 2019. It was just perfect. We got attached to it and it was hard to leave it :)
No issue with the car during the almost 5000 kms. "Titine" was very comfortable and well organized ( compared to other big brand rental companies).
It is very quick to get the van and to give it back.
Staff is so great and post me back some precious stuff I had forgoten in the car.
I definitevely recommend!

We knew many camper van rental companies are available, but heard of Affordable Motor Home Rentals through a friend who recommended them. Lynda and Duncan made our first NZ camper van experience easy and fun (and affordable). We traveled the South Island for 17 days in a 2-berth Toyota (we nicknamed "Bessie") and had a blast. Ben picked us up in downtown Christchurch, and showed us how everything worked (we are used to tent camping, so there were more moving parts than usual). Bessie had a few miles on her, but she was game for all we attempted. Blankets and duvet were warm, beds comfortable. We had incredible weather, so except for driving we did not hang out much inside the van during the day. Our rental ended in Picton, where Lynda and Duncan met us. They were great to work with, and we recommend them highly.

We were very happy to rent a campervan with affordable motorhomes. Dealing with Lynda and Duncan was very pleasant, they are genuinely kind and honest people. When we had small damage, they handled it very well.

The campervan was perfect. We drove more then 5000 km and had no single problem. The bed was spacious and comfy and there was enough space for our stuff. Also the awning was very handy for rainy nights and freedom camping.

Because we loved our experience, we decided to rent the van for two more weeks. We could return the van in Auckland instead of Christchurch which was perfect.

These folk were really helpful when we just turned enquiring about renting a motor home...with no prior contact..and they were good to their word. The camper came with EVERYTHING!! Nothing missing..everything worked...and not a hickup with roadworthyiness in nearly 4000 km around NZ. Maybe not the cheapest but value for money and would definitely recommend...and genuinely pleasant people to deal with. No hesitation in booking ahead with this company next time with
confidence ....good company.👌👍🙂

Affordable Motorhomes, a great family run business based in Christchurch. Lynda and the team were great and very helpful and accommodating when we had an issue that needed sorting out. Would recommend them again.

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!
