First-time Campervan Hire Tips
- How many travellers?
Legally every passenger needs to a seat belt and it is ideal to have their own bed too.
- How much space do you need? (Vehicle size)
Who is travelling? Family, couple or a group of friends? Make sure the campervan you hire has the appropriate bedding arrangement and that the space meets the needs of the individual travellers. i.e. have a family with young kids? A campervan with separate living areas or sleeping areas at opposite ends of the campervan will be ideal.
Size: Bigger is not necessarily better. New Zealand's law restricts vehicles over 3.5 tonnes (which is most full-size motorhome rentals) to a max speed of 90km/hr (56mph) and when the length exceeds 6.5m (21 ft), parking and manoeuvrability becomes significantly more challenging. i.e. travelling NZ's scenic routes are winding and narrow & city parking spaces don't accommodate large motorhomes.
Planning on camping at a powered holiday park or campground with kitchen/bathroom facilities for the duration of your rental? Ignore that big motorhome with full kitchen and bathroom facilities. Where you plan on camping will determine what facilities you really need in you campervan rental. Conversely, many areas in New Zealand have strict laws with instant fines for freedom camping in a vehicle that is not fully self contained. If you want to stop where ever your fancy takes you, you need to have wastes contained.
- Where are you going and when?
Despite being labelled as a state highway, 90 Mile Beach and many other roads in remote areas of New Zealand are unsealed and considered off-road so most campervan rental companies restrict access to these types of roads. So be sure to check with our customer service team if your travel plans venture on these types of roads.
Note: If you're travelling during colder seasons and not planning on staying at a powered camping ground, be sure to choose a caravan that's fully insulated and has gas or diesel heating.
- Safety features
Backpacker and budget brands may provide cheaper rentals, but consider what safety features you would like to have in your motorhome/campervan as older models don't always include the latest advances.
- On-road assistance and insurance
You can never predict the unpredictable when travelling, so considering on-road assistance for those inconvenient mishaps or insurance for those once in a life time situations which are beyond your control, is the best thing you can do to safe-guard your travel experience. So be sure to check out the campervan rental insurance packages and take the time to look at it closely as it may just work out to be cheaper to get an excess reduction package which just cuts out all those extras.
