New Zealand Motorhome Rental & Camper Hire

New Zealand is made up of two islands, the north and south.  Each has several large cities, Auckland in the north and Christchurch in the south being the mail international entry airports.  New Zealand motorhome, campervan and recreational vehicle (RV) agents are located near all major airports in New Zealand, including Apollo Campervans, Britz Campers, Maui Motorhomes, Kea Campers and United Motorhome rentals in New Zealand.  Book your motorhome or campervan rental online before you travel, then simply pick up the keys on arrival and begin your RV holiday without delay!

New Zealand by Motorhome North to South:

A rental motorhome trip from the north of New Zealand to the south takes you through beautiful scenery, through mountain roads, past glaciers and across an ocean!  Though divided into two islands, it is possible to take your hire campervan on the ferry from Wellington to Picton.  There are holiday parks and caravan and camping sites that will accept motorhomes, campervans and recreational vehicles with truly amazing locations and facilities throughout New Zealand.

The country can offer a little bit of everything.  There are vineyards, skiing and snowboarding, hiking, glacier walking, volcanic hot springs, surfing and other adventure activities, as well as city sights and nightlife, not to mention the culture of the Maori people.  New Zealand is known for being laid back and getting into the relaxed groove can be the first thing on your list!  No matter your planned route, it is sure to take your breath away.  Don’t believe me?  Watch The Lord Of The Rings movie, shot entirely in New Zealand, to whet your appetite, then grab a map and a marker and start imagining your hire campervan trip!

Campgrounds and holiday parks in New Zealand can be pre-booked online before travel. You can either pre-book an itinerary; or purcase open dated vouchers for New Zealand Holiday Parks and campgrounds, that you use whilst travelling in New Zealand.

Driving in New Zealand:

  • Drive on the left hand side of the road.  New Zealand roads are known for being narrow and windy, so overestimate your travel time and make sure the driver gets enough rest.
  • You must have a valid driving license.  If your license is not in English, then you must carry a valid International Driving Permit issued in your home country.
  • Seatbelts are compulsory and babies and young children must be restrained in an approved car seat (you can hire a seat from most New Zealand motorhome and campervan hire companies).
  • Take time to read over the rules of the road before you get behind the wheel
