2-berth Campers - Inspiring your journey, whatever your mode

We know this isn’t just about the vehicle you drive, it’s also about where you go and how you get there. That’s why we share our local knowledge with you, to make your journeys more interesting, more fun and more rewarding. We love New Zealand and want everybody who drives it to get the most from the experience.

We also want your motoring to be carefree. We provide a 24-hour roadside assist, free standard insurance (there is a standard hirer liability limit of $3,000) and we can rent to 18 to 20-year-olds with an additional $500 liability limit.

When you get into one of our vehicles, you’ll know it’s been really well looked after and it’s going to be reliable.

We do all we can to make sure they’re safe, through regular servicing and sending them for government inspections every six months.

The other good news is the cheap price. We guarantee you won’t find a better price for rental cars of a similar age and quality.

Our policy is to offer you the best deal going. We do that by providing you with the best vehicle in its class that we have available on the day. For that reason, we wait until pick-up to tell you exactly which car it will be.

We also promise to provide what you have asked for, or even go one better. So if you book a people mover with seven seats you will get one – or a vehicle with more seats. We also upgrade customers from time to time.

Come to us knowing you'll be getting a great vehicle at a very sharp price. If you’re not happy with the vehicle we’ve chosen for you, we’ll gladly find you another one, so long as one is available.

The rental was easy to book, at some very decent rates. The car worked perfectly and was furnished with all we could need. Staff was really nice and helpful.

We rented a smaller self contained camper van, Nissan Serena. The van itself was very clean and sufficient for our needs and easy to maneuver. The items provided with the van, namely, linen and utensils, came in very handy. There was a slight problem with the sliding open of one of the side doors, but it was no big issue. All in all, our experience with the vehicle and with the staff we encountered, both at the start and the finish of our road trip, was really good. There were no hidden fees and we received value for what we paid. Thanks Mode Rentals🙏

Great service , van a bit cramped for me but it was advertised. I spent every night in a campsite that had toilets / showers and kitchens. Having said that I throughly enjoyed my week driving in New Zealand and would Recommend the company , the vehicle was clean and well maintained

Can't fault out experience with Mode, hired a 2-berth camper for a two week road trio around the North Island of NZ. Shuttle picked us up at the airport and drove us to their rental address, and we were on the road in no time. No issues with the vehicle at all and came with everything we needed. The after hours drop-off was also handy as we had a late flight on our last day, so we were able to drop it off later than their office hours, and that was all fine. All in all, a smooth experience with Mode rentals.

Hello fellow NZ travellers. I have quite the story for you regarding Mode rentals. Let me first say that Brooke did a fantastic job in repairing the damage or this review would have received only 1 star! Unfortunately, just too many mistakes and blunders with this company. I researched and was uncertain of the track record before but the price could not be beat. After multiple emails regarding deposits, amenities, etc. I finally arrived in Auckland. The contract stated airport pickup and the flight # was provided. After waiting 45-60 minutes with no pick up, I finally took a cab to the depot. Upon arrival I read notice on the gate stating a fumugation issue with the building next door and that I had to pick up at a hotel. Where was the phone call telling me this? Why did nobody pick me up? The van was at the hotel and I checked over the contract which charged $15 for a pick up that never happened. At this point I am not signing off on the contract, not leaving me CC info, and taking the van telling them to email me. Not 20km into my trip the van is drifting to the left on the highway and when I brake, the steering wheel begins to shake rapidly. Next day, email from Mode stating my van hire is illegal and the police could be notified. I am told to return the van today and settle this matter. OK, I will take time from my holiday to visit the depot and inform them of their shortcomings in person including renting an unsafe vehicle. This is where Brooke (the shining star) takes control of the situation and empathizes with me. Yes, the vehicle is unsafe so we are covering the cost of petrol. Yes, we forgot to pick you up and we will waive the airport fee and pay your taxi. Yes, you don't require a solar shower so we can refund that too. And yes, here is a new, safe vehicle - we are sorry. Rest of the trip went fine and return was easy. However, nobody informed me of their Social Media campaign where you win a free rental. Terrible I did not have an opportunity to enter!!

You are never too old to go camping.
In November and early December, my husband and I enjoyed and amazing six weeks holiday travelling the central North Island of New Zealand.
We have nothing but praise for the efficient, friendly, warm staff at Mode. We own our own motor home in Australia but adjusted to the more simple style of travelling very easily. The bed was warm and cosy in cold weather and when the weather warmed up we could put the window down a little (rain guards on windows) to provide cooler fresh air inside the van. The bed was more than comfy as well. We also loved the fact that there are no insignias on the car which meant we felt more like locals than tourists.
There was plenty of storage space and the rear compact kitchen was just the right height and it was equipped with all the utensils and accoutrements we needed.
The automatic car (Toyota Estima) was very easy to drive with good fuel economy and we had no mechanical problems during our six weeks stay. We can highly recommend Mode for being a great company who go out of their way to please their customers. They really care!
Mode will pick you up and drop you off at the airport on time for your arrival and departure and their base is very close to the airport.
Get out there and do it! There are so many great places to see, wonderful places to hike (tramp) and beautiful pristine secluded camping spots to visit.

Very good experience renting a camper van for our 2.5 weeks in New Zealand. Check in and out was quick and easy. Van worked well and had everything we needed. Also appreciated that it was a neutral color so did not attract attention as tourists. They also ended up giving us a ride back to the airport for no extra charge. Agent was very friendly and efficient.
