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.
Its my 3rd visit back with Affordable Motor homes when it comes to renting a reliable motor home vehicle for my road trips getaway. Clean and well equipped with everything you need on a trip. Lynda and her team never fails to be so helpful and friendly. Highly recommended for their awesome service and little tips to make our trip ever so memorable with my partner. We will be back again!

‘Well…we’re hooked! Lynda and Duncan have customers for life – unless (and this is a real risk) we buy our own campervan from them. Our amazing week late February, in that cosy little home on wheels promises to be life changing. We loved it so much we had The Big Conversation …’why not start living now the way we dream of in retirement.’ The last day, returning Our Little Home (the 2+1), was sad enough that now, weeks later, we’re still on the path to making it a lifestyle, years before we pictured we might. Seeing the Dark Sky reserve and a noisy nursery of wild baby seals, sitting in hot pools, camping beside the sea/a river/ a lake/ a small village’s deserted domain, having a bird fly straight through the cab of the campervan while we were in the back … numerous big and small memories we’ll have forever. It all kicked off with Lynda’s genuine warmth and thoroughness on our intro, the surprise of finding the interior of the van to be cuter than I expected (at times we couldn’t resist just hanging out inside!), the ease with which it became ‘ours’... So highly recommend this family and their business. Just fantastic!’
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.
