You couldn't fault our experience with Travel NZ Motorhomes. Hamish really did save us when, in the height of the summer season we urgently needed a campervan due to our original one from another company breaking down. He was great at keeping us informed and was very accommodating and went above and beyond to help. He also gave us lots of tips for the remainder of our trip. Great to support a family run business, I just wish we had done that in the first place.

This was our first NZ MOTORHOME experience. We loved it. We picked this company because we liked the motorhome specification and the rental rates were very competitive. Our booking, collection and drop-off procedures were easy and reliable. Hamish is a very amiable and helpful guy, who does all he can to make your motorhome experience a success. We’d book another holiday with this company if we return to South Island NZ.

We holidayed with family in New Plymouth and made a rather late decision to hire a camper and take our daughter and two grandkids on a short trip in the north of the South Island. Thanks to Heidi, a six-berth Merc was sourced at NZ Motorhomes. The entire experience from the willingness of Hamish and Heidi to accommodate our changing pick-up needs, to the clear and quick walk-through of the vehicle’s workings, to the four nights in beautiful sites in Tahunanui and Tukurua — even the Takaka Hill was fun — I highly recommend NZ Motorhomes for service and friendliness. On our return to South Africa, the road-tax bill of NZD 18.00 came through, and for some reason I couldn’t transfer the ZAR amount without blocking my credit card. Hamish even settled the charge. (I will make another plan to get the amount to him!) This was a wonderful and memorable Kiwi experience. We look forward to getting over there again and doing something more extensive. When we do, NZ Motorhomes will be the company we work with! Thanks all!

We were first time camper vaners so we had no idea what to expect. We dealt with Hamish via email and he was always prompt and helpful with his replies. Which gave us confidence that we had chosen well. We arrived in Auckland to pick the CV up and that took a matter of minutes. Then we were on our way. The CV was more than adequate for our needs and didn’t let us down once. Off hire was equally as easy in Christchurch. Had a fabulous time in NZ and the camper van played its part in helping to achieve that. Would not hesitate in recommending Travel NZ.

Für unsere 2 monatige Reise haben wir bei Hamish einen 4 berth Mercedes gebucht. Vermutlich aufgrund eines verschmutzen Dieselfilters hatten wir Motorenprobleme. Innerhalb kurzer Zeit hat uns Hamish ein Ersatzfahrzeug organisiert. Auch als uns 4 Tage vor Abschluss unserer Reise der Campervan auf dem Parkplatz des Aucklands Zoo's aufgebrochen wurde, hat uns Hamish bestens unterstützt.
Trotz dieser beiden Erlebnisse hatten wir eine Super Zeit mit unserem top ausgestatteten 4 Berth. Im Schlafplatz über der Fahrerkabine hat zu unsere vier jährige Tochter super geschlafen. Der 4-Berth bietet auch ansonsten viel Platz für Kleider und Ausrüstung. Dank Solar-panels auf dem Dach kann man mit diesem Fahrzeug auch problemlos 2-3 Nächte auf self-contained spots übernachten.

We had over 4 weeks in a 2+1 birth camper and it was great from start to finish. Hamish really looks after you and goes the extra mile to make your experience top level. I’d highly recommend using this company over the well known overpriced companies as they rinse you on insurance and you have to drive around NZ with their advertising scribbled all over the van unlike these vehicles. Thanks again Hamish 👍🏽

We were delighted by this first camping car experience in New Zealand! At the time of booking, Hamish answered all our technical questions quickly and made the booking process easy and flexible. The website is perfect, and we were happy to find out that the price included many basic things we needed. Everything from the pick-up at the airport, explanations about the camping car and where is the nearest grocery was made on a professional and friendly way. All this put together, this 9 days road trip was surely the top highlight of our stay in beautiful New Zealand!

I couldn't be happier with our experience with Travel NZ Motorhomes. Hamish was amazing in supporting a charity run I was doing with a motorhome. The motorhome, service, info provided and experience were second to none and we loved our time travelling in the motorhome which was spacious, with everything we needed and easy to drive.

I would 100% recommend Travel NZ Motorhomes for the service, the quality of the (unmarked!) vehicles and the experience you will have travelling this beautiful country with one of their motorhomes.

We had a great time driving through the South Island for 5 weeks with the motorhome from Travel NZ Motorhome. And whenever we had an issue, the owner was incredibly helpful and responsible for getting it fixed. We can certainly recommend them!

Hamish made us feel welcome and at home even before we arrived in country. He was kind, communicative, a wealth of information and completely understanding when hiccups arose. Our 4 berth motorhome, dubbed Bertha, was our safe haven and harbor for the month we traveled through the South and North Islands. She was roomy, reliable, easy to drive, clean and it was apparent how well Hamish and the team took care of her throughout the years. If you appreciate being on a first name basis with the company representative and able to direct message with questions throughout your travel than Travel New Zealand is your motorhome company. If we could give Travel New Zealand a higher rank than 10 - we would!

Great site for getting quotes for Motorhomes as you enter your details and then a variety of companies email you with their quotes. Made it very easy to gather this data. The other information sent by Rankers was very supportive for planning a trip in terms of Holiday parks, Free camping and many other free things to do. Great portal to many other things.

Booking with Travel NZ was super simple, Hamish kept the process straight forward. Rather than us hunting to pick up the van, Hamish picked us up from the hotel and completed handover quickly but with everything well explained. We can not understand why anyone using these types of vans would stay in caravan parks, being off grid meant we had plenty of options of places to stay (the rankers app is fantastic). The van is totally set up for freedom camping, there was nothing more that we would have wanted for the 2 weeks. We travelled in a 6 birth as a family of 4 - 2 adults and 2 older teens, the van gave up enough space to really enjoy the trip. We found the large van simple to drive and easy to park. We've recommended Travel NZ already to our friends and will contact Hamish in a heartbeat if we need a van for the South Island again
