We would highly recommend MadCampers vans to anyone who wants to go the camper van route while visiting New Zealand. Both the employees and the van went above and beyond our expectations, and I have to say I am a hard one to please!

We were supplied all the information we needed before arriving in NZ; including some free downloadable apps to find free or paid campsites. They promptly picked us up at the airport and dropped us off in time to catch our flight out (only took about 20 minutes from the time we pull into the drop off location) They also worked quickly to fix a loose wire that was causing electrical issues. You find out the true character of a company when the unexpected happened, and we couldn't have been more pleased with the way things were handled to correct the problem.

In addition to fabulous employees, their van was hands-down the best on the road! It had everything we needed to stay at the free, self-contained campsites, which saved us a lot of money. The van was easy to use, had ample storage for all our gear for a two week trip, and we got some jealous looks from other campers and passersby when they saw our amazing cooking stove and bed set up. Other things we really loved about the van: the mini fridge, running water, extra battery to run the electrical when engine isn't running, and 4 wheel drive. We also had tons of fun doing the Mad Challenge scavenger hunt while we drove the nearly 3000km around the south island.

MadCampers made our trip an awesome one! This is how a company should be run!

Friendly, efficient service! Van was just was described - had everything we needed / asked for. Not the flashiest set up, my perfect for rattling around the countryside. Easy to deal with, no sneaky catches.

Wonderful experience! Everyone was so nice and helpful and our van was great. They even had showers and coffee for us after they picked us up from the airport. The showers Were such a bonus after 24 hours of traveling to get to New Zealand!

Mad Campers was wonderful to work with. They picked us up direct from the airport. The camper itself was a great size and seemed fairly new/updated. The logos are not to garish like some companies so you don't feel like you're sticking out too much as a tourist. The second battery was really the deciding factor when we were deciding between vans and having it really paid off. Since we were driving almost every day we could keep the fridge on all the time without worrying about running down the battery. This meant we could carry yogurt, sandwich fixings, cold drinks, and never worry about things warming up. Being able to charge phones and devices both in the front, while driving, and in the back meant that we were never worried about running out of power. The bed was really comfortable and with the linens/duvet they provided we never had a problem keeping warm during the chilly spring nights. Storage was pretty good as well - though definitely would not work with hard suitcases. With a couple of travel backpacks and soft cases you're able to keep everything in the middle aisle and then just fold down the bed on top at night. You could prob keep it folded down as added camouflage while out tramping. We didn't have to use the provided toilet since most locations we stayed had something, but being certified self-contained made it so stress-free knowing we could camp at any of the various site, with no issue. The camper itself was nice and reliable - we drove all around both islands, up and down steep hills and twisty turns and had no issues. The compact size of the camper also made it easy to get around in cities and some of the tighter back roads.

We were also able to complete the "Mad Challenge" where you complete 9 simple challenges - posting photos of various tasks or locations and get 5% back. A great way to encourage kiwi experiences.

Everyone we interacted with at Mad Campers was so friendly and helpful, would definitely use them again if given the chance.

They help us to booked our ferry ticket and when we got a little trouble in our campers (our back LED is off) they tried responsible for handling it immediately but because we couldn't wait to start our road trip so we refused. we really appreciate for their respon and help. Thank you mad campers!!!

It was a wonderfull experience, travelling in a mad campervan! Small scale company ran by truely passionate people. The van was smartly organised and gave a comfortable stay for the few square meters it has! The service was personal, quick and outstanding. Iris and Hannah were very friendly and made sure everything was taken care of! We even got a ride back to the station after all was paid and done by one of the owners. Can and will recommend this company to anyone!

We have enjoyed a lot their little vans! We have traveled for two weeks along north island and part of the south and we have to say that the van is very comfortable! The model maybe is not the newest but it responds perfectly on the road! Maybe the only cons is that we took the canopy but we didn't used it because of the bad weather, but we guess it's quite useful in summer. The equipment is good and works perfectly!

And regarding to the team, just to say they have a great team, and mainly Hannah, who answered all our email immediately and made an excellent introduction to the van functioning!

Highly recommendable!

Took a Mad Campers van on a trip from Auckland through the far north of NZ and I do not regret my choice in company. The camper had everything you needed and more, making my time on the road super easy. The staff are great (especially Hannah (call me)), and really make you feel part of the Mad Camper family. 11/10.

Great little vans with all you need for a good trip. The vans are set-up very smart and everything you need is within hands reach. For instance the kitchen is at the back which leaves a lot of space in the van itself to move about, the little vans become quite spacious because of this. On top of this the kitchen has a good stove and he right cooking utilities. For sleeping the benches fold down to make a bed that is surprisingly comfy.The vans themselves drive great and don't feel run down at all.

The best from Mad Campers however may not be the vans but their service. From picking up the van to dropping it of the service is very friendly. A good introduction to the van is given which gives you a lot of confidence to start your journey. Also if you have any questions during your journey they are quick to respond. Luckily I did not run into any trouble during my trip, but if that would have happened I have no doubt they would do anything to get you on the road asap. Overall great experience and I highly recommend Mad Campers.
