All our rentals include comprehensive insurance with your daily hire. This covers accidental damage to the campervan or rental car and public liability.
This includes overhead and underbody damage (the most common accidents), single-vehicle accidents (e.g. you reverse into a bollard at a campsite), towing and recovery of your motorhome or rental car , fire or vandalism.
If the motorhome or rental car or any of its equipment is damaged, you are required to contribute to the cost of replacement or repair up to the excess amount.
The excess amount for:
If there’s more than one incident in which the motorhome or rental car is damaged, a separate liability applies for each incident.
You are required to take all reasonable steps to ensure the motorhome or rental car is not damaged. We recommend you check out our Rental Terms and Conditions for any exclusions.
When booking a campervan or rental car you can choose to pay in full or pay a 30% Deposit with the balance due 30 days prior to your booking. We will send you a payment reminder. If the balance has not been received 30 days prior to the booking, your booking will automatically be cancelled and no refund given.
We understand that time is often limited and you want to see as much as possible. While our rates reflect Pick up and Drop Off in Auckland, we do accomodate One Way Hires to Wellington, Nelson and Christchurch on a case by case basis. Please contact us with your desired travel dates and we will provide you with a quote for a One Way Hire.
Absolutely. All of our campers are certified to be self contained.
There is no limit on how many days you can freedom camp. As the campervans charge their battery during the day, you will have power permanently. You will need to empty the grey water and toilet every couple of days and top up the fresh water as well as the gas.
New Zealand has public dumping stations all over the country. These are free and open 24/7. The free Campermate App shows you the locations of dumping stations. Dumping Stations usually have fresh water as well, but note that most of the time this is not suitable for drinking and should only be used for washing.
That absolutely depends on the number of people travelling with you and your habits. With 4 people showering and doing the dishes twice a day, and using the toilet, the water and toilet lasts about 2 days. With 2 people and only mini showers you might be able to stretch the water to 4 days.
The gas lasts usually for at least a week if you are heating a lot, much longer if you don’t use much heating.
The free Campermate App has a range of Freedom Camping Sites. You can also search on Google Maps by zooming in on the area that you are looking and type in “freedom camping”. This will often bring up additional freedom camping spots.
All of our campervans come equipped with a power lead that let’s you plug in at a campsite.
While freedom camping you can use all of the appliances, USB ports and any 12v equipment. The 240v power points only work when connected to power at a campsite.
All of our campervans have an outdoor table and 6 camping chairs.
Yes. The security bond depends on your chosen insurance package and the respective excess. If you have the basic insurance, your excess is $7500, if you have the premium insurance, then the excess is $1000.
Unfortunately pre-authorisation only lasts for 30 days, so for trip less than 30 days, we pre-authorise your credit card and only charge the bond if you have an accident or damage. For trips longer than 30 days we do require the bond to be paid in cash or credit card and this will be refunded at the end of your trip.
Rental charges for rental campervans, motorhomes & recreational vehicles are calculated per calendar day, regardless of the actual pick-up time. Charges for rental cars are based on a 24-hour period.

Yes, you are welcome to leave your car parked outside of our property on the road. If you prefer secure parking, we do have a carpark available at a close by storage facility for $10 a day.
We do not offer delivery of the campervans to the airport as it is very hard to do the training and handover there. We have an arrangement with a local shuttle service to transport our guests to and from the airport for $110 each way, payable directly to the shuttle. Hotel transfers can be quoted on request. We are happy to arrange the transport for you.
Yes, you will have roadside assistance through AA.
If the Campervan breaks down, or has a mechanical problem that cannot be mobilised at scene, the AA will tow the campervan to the nearest place of safety or repair, where arrangements for its repair can be made or where it can be safely stored. Breakdown service does not cover any breakdown cost due to incorrect fuel, lost keys or if you have locked yourself out of the vehicle.
Yes, all raised beds have a safety net to prevent your little ones falling out.
Anyone using New Zealand’s roads contributes towards their upkeep. Most road users pay levies when they buy fuel. Others, such as drivers of light diesel vehicles and heavy vehicles like trucks, pay through road user charges (RUC). Road User Charges will be calculated based on the kilometers that you have travelled. During the handover we take note of the odometer at the start of your trip and then calculate the distance travelled when you return the campervan. Road User Charges are charged at $9/100km travelled and can be paid in cash or via credit card at the end of your trip.
