Had the best experience with travellers autobarn! my friend and I travelled around in the chubby Campervan and it had everything we need! Great bed, tools for cooking, power for charging our laptops. We managed to travel all around the south island with ease and woke up in some amazing camp spots. Highly recommend.

Had the time of my life travelling around the South Island in December! My friend and I had the chubby camper and we road tripped to some of the best destinations in the country and had the convenience to stay at the many campsites along the way! The chubby camper van came equipped with a very comfortable double bed, table, fridge, sink, gas cooker and more. We never had any problems with the van and the staff working at Travellers Autobarn were very friendly and helpful with any questions we had! I'd highly recommend travelling with Travellers Autobarn and I can't wait for my next van life roadie!

I booked a campervan for 6 weeks with autobarn and was really excited about the road trip of my life. Since the beginning we noticed small issues with the van like some leak which could have been easily spotted and fixed if the van was checked properly before check in. When we call them about the issue they did not offer us any solution to fix the issues. Then we had mechanical issues , bad one that forced us to changed our itinerary because of the road condition ( too steep for example ) . Since those incident happened during Christmas and new years eve it was really hard to reach someone. Until the van literally stopped moving and left us on top of an hill. After that we had three days stucked at the mechanic and then we decided to rush to Christchurch to get a new van. I understand that mechanical issue are nothing related to the company but the help we had was not enough. The second van we had was great , I would be more than happy if I've had this van since the beginning but it was not the case . I spend more than 5000 for a van half broken when I could have had a nice and shinny van , How is this fair ?

The only compensation I had was 3 days refund for the days spent at the mechanic.

I work a full year to afford this roadtrip and definitely did not received the service I paid for.

Road trip round NZ south and north islands.
The van was easy to drive and equipped with everything I needed. Joseph at the Christchurch depot was fantastic.

We had a wonderful experience thanks to Joseph from Travellers Autobarn in Christchurch! He assisted us with the pick up and drop off of our van and helped us with questions that came up during our travels. He explained everything so well and could always reach him in case of questions/emergencies etc. He even took us to the airport at the end of our travels! :))
The van itself was just great, it was wonderfully equipped and we had the best time during our 3 weeks of travelling the South Island. Very easy to drive and to keep clean, we would definitely rent with Travellers again. Thank you Joseph for everything! We will hopefully see you again soon!

Have used them twice now, both in New Zealand and in Australia in different vans and have loved both experiences. Really helpful service insuring that we had everything we wanted for our trip and the van worked great. We had a slightly older model with a few bumps and dents on the body work, but the internal fit was still very good and we had no problems with the engine. Would highly reccommend and if we are ever back this way, we will book again with TA!!

Campervan was good, refridgerator was making terrible noise and battery only holding max 12 hours from full charge.
When calling customer service you end up in Australia at a friendly person but unable to solve any issue.

Easy pick up and drop off. Clear and easy to understand rental agreement and online pre check in procedure. Loved driving the van,it’s not as glitzy as others you see on the road but it had loads of storage, good fridge and lots of worktop space for food preparation. It was a little scuffed on thecinternal paintwork but if I’m honest that made it less intimidating to drive and use. Bit slow going up hills but we were there to see the scenery so that was fine. My daughter and I had a great time and would definitely recommend these vans,

Hired from the Christchurch depot of Travellers Autobarn their newly remodelled/refitted Hi5 Campervan. We needed a vehicle that seated and slept 4, this hi top van accommodated 5. Pick up and drop off was absolutely smooth and very professional. Their depot is very easy to get to catching the No. 29 bus and then a 10 minute walk if you want to use public transport. We had our nominated drivers collect the vehicle and drive to our accommodation to pick up the other passengers, this saved having to take our luggage to the depot. No issues with the van whatsoever during our month long trip of the South Island, all ran well. The remodel is fabulous making it easier to have separate areas for cooking and leisure seating/sleeping with easier access to the seating area from the sliding door access. Very happy with it's handling of some of the windy roads we travelled, would not have wanted the stress of driving a larger vehicle as some roads and bridges are very narrow. In all a great hire choice and would strongly recommend for a stress free travel experience.

Rented a Kuga campervan for 20 days, great experience! Campervan was great, everything worked as expected. Very comfortable bed, fridge was big enough and microwave was an awsome plus.

We had 2 big suitcases and were able to store them in the upper level. May be too small for 3 people.
