It's not often I give reviews, but now and again, I find good cause to! Its easy to give a good review of a company when you've had no problems, but a true test of service is how you are treated when things go wrong, and my god on these terms, Kiwi Motorhomes were tested, our holiday ended in a rather abrupt finale in the heat of the covid 19 crisis, and Kiwi Motorhomes came second to nobody, the level of support was just incredible, at a time when we were stranded thousands of miles from the UK, in a foreign country, with all flights cancelled, these guys were simply fantastic, there's not enough characters available in this section to truly cover our experience, but you can see my review in full on Google or Facebook!! If you want THE BEST, book with Kiwi Motorhomes, you'll get the best vehicles, and the best support, stop looking anywhere else, there is no need, trust Leon and the team to take care of everything you need. Take the holiday of a lifetime, with confidence you will be supported all the way. THANKYOU LEON, VARNIER, CHRIS and anybody else in the team, you are all fantastic.

We went to new Zealand and travelled with a motorhome for 19 days. From our experience it was tricky planning the trip as it was jungle when it came to choosing motorhome vehicle and motorhome company. The larger providers have standardized, rather expensive offerings that travelers probably choose out of convenience, unsecure about other options. We instead decided to go with Kiwi motorhomes which we eventually found googling around. It turned out for the best - In short: For a better price they provided us with a top notch motorhome, gave us the best of service and really went to extents to help us optimize our trip. Everything from getting prepared, pickup, service along the way and drop off worked out supersmooth. All in all everything turned out for the best going with Kiwi motorhomes and we would really recommend it to anyone travelling to NZ. We usually do not write reviews but we felt this time that it was the least we could do, as they really made sure we could have our dream trip.
We used Kiwi Motorhomes whilst on a recent holiday to New Zealand and weren't disappointed.
We were picked up from Auckland airport by Leon and introduced to our motorhome (Nate).
Leon and Varnier were fantastic and made sure we knew how everything worked, inside and out, before we set off.
The motorhome was clean and tidy, and we were left some essentials such as tea, coffee, toilet rolls etc which was a nice touch and meant we didn't have to go shopping straight away if we didn't want to.
The motorhome was fully equipped for 6 people, although there were only 4 (adults) of us. There were items such as gas and electric kettle, toaster, plates, cutlery, bedding, towels and more. We also had a satnav (which is essential), a couple of bikes with helmets and outdoor table and chairs which came in very handy.
We had a fantastic time and knew that Leon and Varnier were just at the end of the phone if we had a problem or had forgotten how to use something.
The motorhome was great to drive (automatic) and was also surprisingly good with fuel economy.
There was enough space for us, 4 adults, we used the double bed above the cab and the back double bed, which we left as a bed all the time, and used the table at the front with the drivers seat and passenger seat, which swivel around fully.
We flew back from the south island from Christchurch Airport and met up with Chris who done a final inspection and dropped us off at the Airport.
We all had a fantastic experience and we are hoping to go back soon, when we do we will definitely be using Kiwi Motorhomes again.
For our 6-week trip to New Zealand, we were looking for a comfortable and inexpensive motorhome. From the many offers, we have selected the kiwi motorhomes (Benji), this was a good decision. The whole process from ordering to return was perfect. During the trip we also received weather warnings via the Wahtsapp, when asked they responded and helped immediately. The car was clean, well stocked with very good kitchen equipment including coffee, salt. Get in and drive. We are very satisfied with the Kiwi Motorhomes and can definitely recommend the company. We hope to see you again sometime.
Great service and a very modern and clean camper. Leon, Chris, Kathy and Jamie were very friendly - we even had an overnight stay in the driveway at Jamie & Kathys house in Nelson - wonderful, warm and very friendly people. We were welcomed and treated like friends of the family - fantastic. From inital contact, booking and to drop-off at the airport everything worked like clockwork - and during our trip, Chris and Leon were never more than a whatsapp message away for questions. Kiwi Motorhomes comed highly recommended.
Kiwi Motorhomes were brilliant, great correspondence prior to arriving, the camper was spotless and a lovely bottle of wine as a gift, the camper was perfect for what we needed and quite luxurious. There was no issues when dropping the camper off and I would 100% recommend them and use them again!
We just wrapped up an epic one month journey around NZ in this amazing motorhome! You can not ask for better hosts. Leon and Varnier were absolutely wonderful to communicate with as they were super personable and highly responsive. The motorhome was very clean and fitted with everything we needed from kitchen/cooking items, linens, games, dvds, etc. Our son who is 8 months had enough space to crawl around and play, and the car seat provided was safe and comfortable. Both pick up and drop off was incredibly smooth and we would HIGHLY recommend Kiwi Motorhomes! You will make amazing memories!
Just returned from a magnificent trip to NZ to visit family, we also toured the north island and part of the South. We hired Elva for 3 weeks. All I can say is a massive thank you to Leon & Varnier for making our trip a memorable success. From day of arrival where we were picked up from the airport and then handed over Elva for our trip, we were made to feel like family. The motorhome was clean and spacious with all the amenities needed for our group of 4 adults and 1 child. What made it special was all the small things supplied that you don’t think of like tea, for that first much needed cuppa after a mega long flight. We had a slight problem with the fridge early on and after a prompt reply from our WhatsApp message to Leon and Varnier, this was easily resolved. All I can say is what a wonderful people and what a wonderful motorhome, we will definitely be back and most definitely will be choosing Kiwimotorhomes. Thank you so much Kiwimotorhomes you are the best. Kim, Nigel & family from the UK
My partner and I and our 7 month old baby rented a motorhome from Kiwi Motorhomes for a month in January this year. Having booked a motorhome in winter 2013 with one of the bigger companies, I made sure to shop around as motorhome hire over summer is substantially more expensive. I came across Kiwi Motorhomes and was attracted by the positive reviews, the family-owned aspect, and the fact that all their vans are unbranded. Leon replied quickly to my initial email, and communication was quick and easy all the way to booking. There was a small hiccup due to a double booking but this was swiftly rectified by an upgrade to their Te Arawa motorhome and a discount on price. I was pleasantly surprised that the car seat, outdoor chairs, tables, bikes and GPS were included as these often cost extra with the larger companies.
We were met with the van at Christchurch airport. She was exactly as described, in perfect condition, with fewer than 6000km on the clock. We were taken through the van bit by bit, and any questions we had were patiently answered. The van handled really well and we found the manual preferable on the windy and hilly roads. I noticed a real difference being in an unbranded van as to how the motorhome community welcomed us and it was nice to feel part of 'the gang'. When the hot water system showed an error code, Leon and Varnier responded promptly, talking us through resetting the system on a video call and then offering to find an engineer from their contact book local to where we were staying at the time. They were always available to us if needed and didn't worry about the couple of small things we'd broken (cup, glass).
Kiwi Motorhomes is one of the friendliest companies I've dealt with, you're made to feel like more than just a customer, and they are undoubtedly better value for money than your Apollos/Mauis! We would not hesitate to recommend and would book again if we ever return to this beautiful country.
Superb 2 weeks in a Kiwi Motorhome!! Easy to drive with all the facilities including bicycles, picnic table and chairs. Explored the South Island down to Te Anau, Mt Cook area, Timaru to see blue penguins closely observed from the beach.
The Navigation ( Navman) helped a lot as we didn’t know the area. The spacious area inside the van enabled two sisters to have comfortable separate sleeping quarters.
Professional pick up and drop off process was efficient and timely. We highly recommend this company and have many happy memories of our holiday in New Zealand!
Really easygoing owners with a lot of personal contact.
Fast help when we had trouble with our motorhome (selinflicted). We rented Sasha for a period over almost 6 weeks and it was amazing. We were 2 kids and 2 adults. Seats for the kids were provided and the motorhome was really spacious. Any questions we had was answered really fast.
We will definitely book with Kiwi Motorhomes again!

We have been renting a motorhome at Kiwi Motorhomes. We are a family of 4 from Denmark. We were very surprised by the service this company offer. Quick answers to questions before our trip, even quicker answers during our trip. Everything about the motorhome was as described on the website. The motorhome was perfect and during our renting period we had no problems what so ever with the motorhome. All the equipment in the motorhome was working outstanding. When we come back to NZ we will certainly rent our Motorhome at Kiwi Motorhomes.
The owners Leon and Vanier are extremely warm and friendly people, we have nothing but good to say about them....
