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.
I’m so surprised why this business is not as popular as it should be. Superb service 10/10.
Travelled alone for 6 days in the West Coast with a self-contained sleepervan from Affordable Motorhome. Lynda and her team was amazing, very helpful assisting me with the booking and providing me all necessary details and recommendations where to stop. They were so kind upgrading me to a better van for same price. The van is in good condition, new, clean and tidy. Price is much more affordable, pretty much including everything in daily rate, no hidden cost.
The team at Affordable Motor Home Rentals Christchurch were fantastic to deal with. Right from our first communication we could tell they cared about the customer, they were warm, welcoming and helpful. From our shuttle pickup and return to the airport, to making sure we were informed with regards to everything we needed to know to operate our camper van, their service was outstanding. Our vehicle was around 10 years old, it was immaculate, clean and tidy, and drove well. The interior was well designed and everything worked as expected. If we have a chance to travel south again in the future, we will definitely look at using their service again. Thanks for a great experience.
Lynda and her team were amazing from our first contact through to returning the camper vans. Any issues or enquiries we had were dealt with immediately. I would use them again without hesitation.
Affordable Motor Home Rentals has been the only company we have used (and will use) to hire both camper vans and cars. The family run company will bend over backwards to help in every way. Linda, the friendly voice at the end of the phone is always so helpful and ensures you have everything you need before you embark on your journey. All vehicles and clean, comfortable and a home away from home (on a much smaller & fun scale). We have recommended Affordable Motor Home Rentals to many friends and they too have never been disappointed. Thank you for such a great service.
We rented a sleepervan with my girlfriend for two weeks and it was a great experience.
The van was so comfortable, very well equipped, bedding, towels and kitchen items to enjoy a great holidays.
The staff is very attentive, Linda helped us with all our questions and was always available to answer. We definitely recommend this company!
I cant speak highly enough of the experience that we had with Affordable Motorhome rentals or the memorable trip that they enabled us to have. I took my 14 year old son and his mate on a west coast surf trip and was the first time i had rented a motor-home, i would definitely do it again. Affordable homes enabled me to have a stress free holiday with my son. the experience we had has even got him talking about doing the same thing when hes old enough to drive. We had a couple of technical issues due to my lack of knowledge with motor-homes but with a couple of phone calls, Lynda and the team had us sorted. The van was well kitted out and was perfect for what we needed.
For future trips Lynda and her family will be the first place we will go to,when we first started looking for a suitable vehicle they were about the 4th on the list, but after a short email and a follow up phone call everything was sorted, the fact that they are local and a family owned business was a big plus for us. They listened to what we wanted and we got more than we expected. Easy 10/10
We rented from Affordable in February 2020, intending to return home in April, but the lockdown happened and we ended up having the van until June. We cannot say enough good things about this company. Lynda’s responses to our communications from the USA, Grant’s help with our questions during the hire, and especially the way the lockdown was handled were all much better than what our lockdown neighbors experienced with the big companies. We had two different vans and both were as described, with some years and km in their history, but they were well-maintained and fully functional. The way the interiors were fitted out was particularly clever and made the space very efficient. All in all, if you’re looking for a cost-effective way to see New Zealand, you should consider these folks.
Highly recommend Lynda & Affordable Motor Home Rentals. We left it quite late to book a campervan, and heard about this company through a Rankers request.
They had a great 2-berth Alphard Sleepervan available for us, which had all of the features we were looking for - electric fridge, self-contained, and even an awning for the side of the van which many other companies didn't have or charged extra for (this was very useful for changing in after showering!). Plus, it was at a really competitive rate too.
Unlike bigger companies you get a really friendly, personal service, and even though we had some teething issues (a battery needed changing but was organised without hassle by Lynda at no cost to us) we were impressed by how well things were dealt with. The van was easy to drive, comfortable, and we had a great time in NZ. Sadly our time was cut short there by coronavirus, and I hope this company survives to serve other people in future.
P.s. I'd recommend getting excess insurance, either directly or third party, as we learnt the hard way that windscreen chips are quite common! Luckily our 3rd party insurance via Tripcover covered us for this :)
Smooth pick up and return. Vehicle in good condition and very well designed. The water tank sensor was not working (though this was made known to us when we picked up the vehicle) - not a big issue at all. Accommodating staff although we had changes in our flights. Very pleasant experience!
Lynda and her team were amazing. We had an amazing trip with our sleepervan. We rented the sleepervan alphard. It was in very good condition and fully equipped. The bed was super comfortable. Easy pick up from Christchurch and drop off at Christchurch airport. Everything was great. I highly recommend!
Affordable Motorhomes is what the name says--affordable, but that doesn't mean anything was sub-par. We rented the 2-berth compact for three weeks and were so pleased with everything. The kitchen was well stocked, and there was plenty of storage space for our needs. The bed was really comfortable. The van drove well, and everything worked. We were ending our trip as NZ shut down for COVID-19, and Lynda was there to answer the phone and our questions every time we called. She was so helpful and supportive during a very stressful time. Customer service was excellent. We were happy to rent from a family-owned and operated business. Highly recommend them! And, we were on the only domestic flight out of Christchurch to Auckland on 3/28, and then flew on to San Francisco.
We hired a four birth motorhome from Affordable Motorhomes for four weeks in January/February 2020. We had a wonderful month in the van. It's a small family firm that offers very personal service. Lynda responded quickly to any questions we had beforehand and gave us some really good advice. We loved the van. It was old compared to many of the other hired vans we saw on our travels, which is why it is so affordable. We really liked that as it distinguished our van from all the other white boxes driving around. The van was really comfortable inside with a well functioning bathroom. My husband is tall so we used both the bed that is made up in the seating area and the overcab bed. This worked well for us. We had wonderful weather so we just left the bed made up & sat outside to eat & read. We covered a lot of miles but the van coped with all the roads, no matter how winding or steep (we obviously didn't go off road at all). My husband did all the driving and kept commenting on how well the van coped with the roads. Please don't hesitate to hire a van from Lynda and Duncan at Affordable Motorhomes. The service and support they offer is second to none and it really is what it says ; an affordable way of travelling the beautiful South Island in a motorhome.
Amazing company! Unfortunately we had to cancel our trip due to the corona situation, but Affordable Motorhomes was always flexible, and very friendly and fast in their communication.
Without a doubt we will be book with them again, when things turn back to normal, and we can reattempt our travel to NZ!
