We hired a brandnew campervan from McRent. The RV was well equipped. The biggest asset was a better storage solution compared with other competitors. Every detail was perfect planned. Absolutely top was a separate toilett and shower. Very good for long trips and freedom camping. With that van you are absolutely independent for approx 4 days.
The team at the McRent location in Christchurch were absolutely friendly and changed some equipment we preferred. Top!
Only one small mistake happens. A bottle of LPG was empty we found out the first evening. But was not a big problem for us. We gave McRent a call and changed the bottle at the next service station. Get all money back at the end.
Save up to 70% on campsite fees! Support conservation and experience the natural beauty of NZ. 78 Department of Conservation campsites, one convenient pass.
We spent two wonderful weeks in NZ travelling with Mc Rent Dethleff motorhome. The car was brand new and of course very tidy. We have not travelled with a motorhome earlier but found this motorhome very versatile, handy and easy to operate. There was surprisingly much space, even toilet, shower and toilet were completely usable. We were planning to spend some nights in hotels but ended up to spend every night in this motorhome.
When looking at some other people with cheaper campervans in the camping ground, I was very happy that we selected this more expensive solution.
The instructions when we received the motorhome were very good. We only had a small issue during these two weeks and we got very clear instruction how to solve it.
I can recommend McRent.
Access savings worth hundreds of $$ on Top Ranked NZ Accommodation and Activities for just $1 per day.
Service point of McRent in Pokeno (Auckland). The RV was great, it was a brand new car. As usual the best way to visit and explore the country. I do most of my trips this way. Excellent staff of McRent, fully profesional, friendly and helpful. I was a pleasure to meet all of you guys. I will come back, definetelly!
We very much appreciated the great camper van rental experience with McRent in New Zealand. Claudia, the German Sales Manager, in Auckland already helped us before our arrival to get the right campervan for our 2,5 months travel time with our 1 year old son. From her own experience we learnt how to create a safe sleeping environment for our baby. We also received great travel tipps from McRent regarding campground, travel route and magnificent roads.
Picking up the campervan and returning it worked out extremely easy, efficient, fair and with lots of personnel support and time for our questions. Since McRent just expanded their business in New Zealand we travelled in a brand-new campervan. Compared to many other rental campervans McRent offers a very high campervan standard and quality:
- great isolation so that we could spend the night in Sep-Nov without using a heater
- huge fridge and freezer
- huge and comfortable double bed
- lots of storage room
The McRent service we experienced was absolutely outstanding. We can highly recommend this company and would always rend there again.
Fantastic! Excellent built quality and very clean too. McRent also provided all that's necessary for your holiday. Quality beddings, sufficient cooking and dining utensils. They don't overload unnecessary things like electric toasters and electric kettle to you. Communications with Claudia from the sales team was a breeze. Her years in this campervan rental comes thru the moment our first enquiry went out. Nothing was ever too much and all querries, doubts are laid to rest. Issues along the way during the rental was also promptly dealt with. No nightmares of equipment breakdown or doesn't work. Our 7+meters van was superbly easy to handle too. This is our 4th campervan trip in NZ, but our first with McRent. The experience with them is certainly not inferior to some of the bigger and premium names that we had previously used.
The sum it up. There are 2 main areas which we believe are very important to most campervan hirers. The campervan quality (both the van and the interior fixtures working as they are supposed to) and the communication with the company (especially when there are issues before or during the hire period). Both these areas are very well handled by McRent.
Keep up the good work Team McRent!
We found Claudia and Shakey to be very helpful and knowledgeable before we booked the motor home. On arrival they were very friendly and welcoming. When we saw the first motor home we were a little disappointed to see that it didn’t have an oven and was smaller than expected. There was another motor home on site and we were able to upgrade, with only small cost adjustment. So happy days!
My wife and I had the Family Standard model for two weeks out of Christchurch. We found this model ideal for us, despite having an additional drop down bed. The twin beds at the rear(which can be a almost king) were very comfortable and I am over six feet (bed on the driver side is longer). Fully self contained and very well equipped including a TV dish, solar panel and wi fi (extra, but worth it) which we never lost during our almost complete circle of the South Island. Having never driven a motor home I found this model quite easy to maneuver despite its width and NZ's narrow roads. The Fiat diesel had enough power and having an automatic/stick shift was great on twisting roads. One caveat, if you are one who brakes with his/her left foot, don't! For some reason if you brake with your left then push on the accelerator nothing happens, as if no longer in gear. No worries it comes back in a second, but won't happen if you brake with your right foot, as most do. Can't figure out why, but is clearly explained in the manual "do not brake with other foot". Took me several days and a through read of the manual before I figured it out. Cab has electric mirrors, excellent seats, cruise control, radio with blue tooth and a nice pop-up built in for your phone.
Interior is nicely done and all windows/sunroof have very nice built in shades and screens, including the front and side windows of the cab. Good size fridge, three burner stove and oven. Clever bath has a full shower, when done the sink and toilet swing out for use, then out of the way to shower. Huge garage for storage and easy access to gas bottles etc.
My unit only had about 1000km on it and was very clean at pick-up. Great staff, had a minor issue on the road and they responded quickly. Huge shout out to Claudia in their Auckland station who answered my many, many questions during the months prior to arriving, and delivered on every promise she made. Would not hesitate to use McRent again, highly recommended!
Great rig with wonderful layout. Unbelievable service from Shacky who walked us through 2 fixes on a Sunday night.
The McRent team from first contact to drop off were very friendly, helpful and thoughtful. They helped me achieve a long term sporting goal (running 160 km around Mt Taranakai, New Plymouth) I required a support vehicle and they were more than accommodating and provided a four berth van. It was nearly new, clean, well appointed and drove like a dream. I cannot recommend McRent and the crew highly enough. Thank you
By far the best company to rent from in NZ. Their fleet of vehicles are practically new- top quality motor homes with everything you could possibly need Included. Great service too.. If you have any troubles, someone is there to help you on the phone. Would definitely go with McRent again when we do North Island =)
McRent staff where very helpfull and freindly. The Motorhome was great, clean well equipped and easy to drive couldnt have done without the wi.fi which was a extra but well worth it. We loved our holiday and McRent made it hassle free.

Shortly after reaching retirement, a dream came true for us. We took off to travel NZ by camper van. After having done a lot of comparison between different providers in advance we decided to book with McRent. For us the 7m Dethleffs Ducato they provide was the right choice as this offers a perfect compromise between living comfort, space and driving.
We flew into Auckland (with Singapore Airlines - a recommendation for itself) and for the first night booked a double in
LaValla Estate / Tuakau - to sleep over the jet lag. Next morning we were picked up by Shacky from McRent who took us to Pokeno - McRent office on the North Island. Shacky also did all the necessary paper work with us and introduced the camper van to us - in every detail we needed. Everything had been prepared perfectly so we were ready to go after an hour.
From then on we spent four wonderful weeks traveling the North Island and the South Island. Stunning landscapes every day - we have never seen such a diversity and beauty before. Only the list of places we’ve been to would exhaust this review. Two small technical problems we had on our way were properly solved via hotline support. Return of the van in Christchurch was fair, easy and without any problem. We simply paid the tax for the milage we had - that’s all. Finally we got a voucher for a taxi to take us to the Christchurch airport.
The van we got was a fairly new one. It had every feature we needed. Everything was working reliably.
Above all that we have to point out, that the personnel in Auckland as well as in Christchurch were very supportive and obliging.
We recommend McRent NZ as a fair and reliable rental partner for camper van adventures in NZ.

Brand new company with a brand new fleet. Our Fiat campervan had only 1600 km on the clock and was impeccable. Good lay-out, easy to handle and a competitive price.
The handling staff was very help-full. Check-in and explanation efficient and clear. We had in our 5 weeks rental period 2 small technical issues, 1 with our Wifi and 1 with the Heating, both easy (software) fixes after a quick call to Janell and telephonic instructions.
Well done McRent!
