Freedom & Flexibility

  • There is no better way to enjoy freedom and flexibility and experience the stunning scenery of New Zealand than by motorhome. Stop where you want when you want with pretty much your home and contents right there for your convenience.
  • A motorhome experience allows you to get up close and personal to nature and the environment. And it's a great way to meet people including other travellers or locals. You will also save costs as you will selfcater in your motorhome with all the modern kitchen facilities.

Choosing your Campervan

  • Campervans are designed for 2 to 6 people. Most are built on European chassis and generally come with automatic transmission making self-drive touring easy. All campervans come fully equipped with linen, towels, bedding, kitchen equipment, crockery and so forth. And for a small additional cost you can order picnic tables and chairs, a Holiday Grocery Box starter pack, Souvenir Road Atlas, baby seats if needed etc.
  • You'll also receive a free SIM card on arrival. All the campervans provide large internal and external storage but to maximise the use of the space we recommend you bring soft shell bags. Enjoy the free travel guide audio apps with informative commentary about the area you are passing through in addition to GPS units to help you navigate your route. Turn the page to look at the campervan options in detail.

Where can I camp?

  • In New Zealand taking care of the environment is a priority. To freedom camp in designated areas you need a fully self-contained campervan such as the options we offer. Alternatively we recommend staying at the Holiday Parks or Department of Conservation (DOC) sites.
  • There are over 350 Holiday Parks (Caravan Parks) throughout the country which are safe, secure and comfortable with International standard facilities. Pre-booking is required only over peak periods but we have open dated vouchers available to pre-purchase. There are also over 200 Department of Conservation sites available throughout New Zealand. Facilities vary but are often quite basic and fees reflect this. We offer a 5 Day DOC Campsite Pass.

It's about experiences

  • To experience the real New Zealand, we have selected campervan partners who bring you more than just the camper. Indulge yourself with a stay at the Maui Winery Havens where you can stay amongst the vineyard overnight, cook up a sumptuous dinner made up of local foods and of course, sample the cellar door wine.
  • Or if you are into cycling, Britz Campervans offer bike racks and bike hire of Mountain bikes or Hybrid bikes. Britz is the official partner of the NZ Cycle Trails – 2500kms of cycle trails from the Top of the North Island to the bottom of the South. All cycle trails are clearly marked and have gradings from easy to advanced.
