Tips On Choosing A Camper Company
Some pointers about the New Zealand camper market
The Big Operators
The two major motorhome operators in Australia are Tourism Holdings Limited and the Apollo brand. Both have their own individual companies of motorhomes catered towards different levels of vehicles.
THL's top-end range are Maui, with Britz being their line of re-branded Maui vehicles that have over two years of use on them, and Mighty their range of older vehicles for travellers on a budget. In a a similar set-up, Star RV leads the Apollo brand as the brand-new vehicles in their fleet, followed by Apollo, Cheapa and Hippie for budget conscious campers.
The Lesser Known Alternatives
Pacific Horizon and McRent represent two options outside of the big two that are both reliable and feature strong customer support.
While their fleets are not as large as the bigger competitors, both offer a range of vehicles in various sizes featuring newer vehicles and modern interiors.
McRent have rental stations in Auckland and Christchurch, as does Pacific Horizon while also offering Wellington.
Budget Friendly Options
A number of our New Zealand partners provide fantastic vehicles for 2-5 travellers at great prices. Albeit often older models, they are well-maintained and fantastic options to get you across the two islands.
Among these are the likes of Jucy Rentals, Travellers Autobarn and Escape, with each offering unique-styled vehicles in all shapes and sizes
Spaceships provide extremely affordable options in the form of car and van-converted vehicles that allow for extra mobility and somewhere comfortable to rest your head at night.
