Christchurch Motorhome Rental, NZ

Book & Compare Campervan Hire & RV Rentals in Christchurch

The oldest city in New Zealand and the largest in the South Island, Christchurch is the ideal location from which to launch your motorhome vacation, so it’s for good reason Christchurch motorhome rental companies are plentiful and readily available. As a city, Christchurch is a popular tourist destination, so you’d be wise to spend at least a few days checking out her cultural and natural attractions before heading to the Christchurch motorhome rental depot of your choosing and heading on to your next destination.

When it comes to scenic drives and sites of staggering natural beauty the phrase ‘spoiled for choice’ couldn’t be more appropriate. A third of New Zealand is mountainous, and much of it unspoilt by human settlement, so there is an abundance of places to visit where you can be left in peace to discover her eye-popping countryside without the trappings of tourism.

Don’t take our word for it either, most Christchurch motorhome rental companies will gladly offer tips and advice, so you can make the most of your motorhome rental experience without spending days planning your trip in advance.

Christchurch is the biggest city on New Zealand′s south island and the main portal for international visitors.  You can go online and reserve your motorhome or campervan rental before you travel, then pick up the keys from your Christchurch motorhome rental, campervan and recreational vehicle (RV) agent. You can choose between international motohome rentals companies Apollo Campervans, Maui Motorhomes and Britz Campers; as well as a large number of smaller Christchurch campervan hire companies.

Top Motorhome Rental Companies in Christchurch, NZ

We’ve taken the cream off the top of the best motorhome rental companies in Christchurch, New Zealand, and treated each one to a spot-lit soundbite, plus a brief overview of some of the campervans, motorhomes and RV’s they have available to rent.

It’s a given that all the top motorhomes rental companies in Christchurch are providing a wide selection of campervans, motorhomes or RV’s to hire, but there are some surprising differences between what each one offers; aside from a plethora of shapes and sizes, berth numbers and/or kitchen and bathroom facilities, some of these companies have based their motorhome rental company on a specific theme or even an ideology.

Potentially, this makes choosing one of these top motorhome rental companies in Christchurch a little more involved than simply renting a vehicle for the sake of getting from A to B, as we shall soon discover.

Backpacker Sleepervans, Christchurch, New Zealand

Backpacker Sleepervans

By putting the word ‘backpacker’ alongside ‘sleepervan’ you have a pretty good inkling that this rental company is aimed squarely at the trekking poles of those who are more about getting somewhere on a budget than they are scenic drives. However, they may be surprised. Backpacker Sleepervans in Christchurch offers two, 2 berth sleepervans which are far more comfortable and practical than their name implies. The ‘Deluxe’ is certified self-contained and even the cheap-as-chips ‘Backpacker’ has enough great stuff to coax the hardiest of hikers out of the bush and onto the road.

Things to do in Christchurch by motorhome

The city is recovering from the massive earthquake in 2011 and the Lonely Planet has done a great job in putting together a new guidebook for the so-called “renaissance” of the city.  Many of the architectural highlights have been damaged but are still worth a visit.  The city also hosts many museums and galleries, as well as botanical gardens, nightlife, shopping, eating and a general air of chilled out New Zealand.

Read up on the rules of the road, then get behind the wheel of your motorhome rental and head out of the city into the stunning countryside of the Canterbury region.  New Zealand is chock full of natural sights, glaciers, mountains, harbours and sea life.  The whole island offers natural geothermal springs and spas. You can choose to get adventurous with bungy jumping or mountain biking; take a more relaxing hike or sample some of the renowned vineyards in the region.

South Island NZ by campervan

The south of the region is no less fantastical.  Continue to enjoy culinary delights and fine wines.  Take a picnic on a walk into Talbot Forest.  On the drive south to the university city of Dunedin and the wildlife attractions of the Otago Peninsula, visit Temuka near Timaru to see the pottery.  No matter where you take your hire campervan, you are sure to meet with soaring peaks and endless vistas.  Mount Cook National Park  holds the country’s highest mountain and allows you to experience glacier walking.

Queenstown, New Zealand, Christchurch Motorhome Rental
Queenstown, New Zealand

Fiordland National Park and magnificent Milford Sound are not to be missed. These are easily reached by campervan rental or motorhome hire from Queenstown, the adventure capital of New Zealand. Heading north from Queenstown, you can drive up the West Coast to Fox Glacier and Franz Josef Glacier; and take a guided walk or scenic helicopter flight on to the glacier.

You will hardly be able to fit all that you want to do into a short holiday; but don’t worry you’re sure to come back!  When planning your route, remember that New Zealand roads are known for being narrow and windy, so overestimate your travel time and make sure the driver gets enough rest.  Return your RV rentals to your Christchurch motorhome rental and campervan hire agent.

Christchurch Motorhome Rental FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

How much is a motorhome rental in Christchurch?

Daily rental rates vary considerably depending on the time of year you are travelling, the type of vehicle you require, age of campervan and the length of hire.

As a rough guide over the high season summer period (December to March) daily prices range from about NZ$200 per day for a cheap camping car or campervan to NZ$500 per day for a new luxury 4 or 6 berth motorhome rental in Christchurch. During the low winter period (June to August) costs can be as little as NZ$25 – NZ$270 per day. These prices are based on standard rates with basic insurance excess/liability.

Extra costs would apply if you wanted to reduce the insurance excess or add in any extras that may be applicable such as one way fees, child seats, camping chairs and table.

What company has the cheapest campervan hire in Christchurch?

If you are looking for a budget campervan in Christchurch, then the local backpacker brands that have older and smaller camping cars, campervans and sleeper vans suitable are a great option. These include such companies as Travellers Autobarn, Spaceships New Zealand, Escape Rentals, Jucy Rentals, Backpacker Sleepervans, Mighty Campers and Tui Campers.

Mighty Campers, Britz Campers, Cheapa Campas and Budget Campers are a good option if you are looking for a larger budget 4 or 6 berth motorhome suitable for all the family.

How do I pick up my motorhome rental from Christchurch Airport?

Most of the Christchurch motorhome rental companies have their office close to Christchurch Airport and offer free transfers to their depots during business hours. Those arriving off a long flight or with an afternoon flight arrival should always book at least one night’s accommodation to rest and recuperate, before picking up their vehicle the next day.

Scenic NZ Motorhomes is a small local company that has its branch in Burnham School Road, Rolleston on the road south to Timaru and Dunedin. Free transfers are available from the airport or Christchurch city hotels, these must be advised 7 days before pick up.

How do I drop off my campervan hire at Christchurch Airport?

Before dropping your RV rental off at Christchurch Airport, please make sure you have cleaned out all rubbish from the vehicle and filled up the vehicle with fuel. Allow plenty of time for the rental staff to check over the hire vehicle and for your transfer from the depot to Christchurch Airport for your flight.

How old must I be to rent a campervan at Christchurch Airport?

The minimum age for most Christchurch motorhome rental companies is 21 years. Some companies may charge a surcharge for driver’s between 21 and 24 years of age; with driver’s required to have a full or unrestricted driver’s car license.

There are a few budget campervan hire operators that allow drivers as young as 18 years of age, that have provisional or probationary driver’s licenses, this includes Spaceships and Jucy Campervan Rentals. Lucky Rentals allows drivers of any age, with any driver’s license including learners.

What is the best time of year to rent a campervan in Christchurch?

The most popular time of year to rent a motorhome in Christchurch is during the summer season (December to February), when the weather is at its warmest. However, motorhome rental rates over this period are high and vehicle availability is difficult if you book late, so you need to book well in advance.

Probably the best time to book a Christchurch campervan hire holiday is during the shoulder season in Spring (September to November), when the snow will be on the Southern Alps and the flowers are out; or Autumn/Fall (March to May), when you get the beautiful autumnal changes of the leaves to russet and golden browns. Availability then is much better, with prices significantly lower.

Winter (June to August) is very popular for skiing and snowboarding, as well as those doing a self-drive vacation as motorhome rental prices are heavily discounted. If you are looking for a bargain, then this is the time of year to go.

What driving license do I require to rent a motorhome in Christchurch?

You just need a standard car driver’s license which is in English. If your license is not in English, then you will need to bring your home license, as well as either an International Driver’s Permit from your home country, or a copy of the license that has been translated by an authorised translator.

Can I rent motorhome with automatic transmission in Christchurch?

Yes you can. Automatic transmission is available in all types of motorhome rentals in Christchurch, from 2 berth campervans up to 4 or 6 berth luxury motorhomes.

How long do I need to drive a motorhome rental from Christchurch to Auckland?

The minimum time you would need to drive from Christchurch to Auckland is 14 days. However, it is very rushed as you have little time to stop and explore the places you visit, resulting in a lot of driving. Normally we would recommend spending at least 21 days on this trip, as there as so much to see and do. You will then have a much more relaxed RV rental vacation. Hiring a motorhome rental from Christchurch for 21 days also normally results in a discount, so you will get a cheaper daily rate.

If you only have 14 days, then we recommend you just stay in the South Island, as you will have a more relaxed and enjoyable trip.

Is there a minimal rental period when hiring a campervan in Christchurch?

Except for the Christmas/New Year period, most Christchurch campervan hire companies have a minimum rental period of 5 days, with discounts for longer rentals. Over Christmas/New Year the minimum rental period increases to 10 or 14 days with most hire companies.

Can I take pick up and drop off my Christchurch campervan hire at different locations?

Yes, most Christchurch motorhome rental operators also have depots in Auckland, so one way rentals from Christchurch to Auckland are very popular. Many RV rental companies allow this without any relocation fee.

There are number of motorhome rental companies that allow one way rentals between Christchurch and Queenstown, including Maui Motorhomes and Britz Campervan Rentals. Avery few companies allow the vehicle to be dropped off at other smaller locations, though generally a fee is charged. If you do a search for a one way rental, the operators and vehicles that can be booked will show up in the search.
