What You Need to Know Before You Book a Campervan in New Zealand

Before Booking a Campervan in NZ

Is it your first time renting a campervan in New Zealand? There are a few things you should know before you make your booking. We've put together a guide to booking a campervan in New Zealand to help you work out which documents you'll need to have, and what sort of vehicle would be best suited to your trip. If you have any additional questions, feel free to get in touch with our Customer Care Team.

Licence requirements

You'll need to make sure your driver's licence will be accepted in New Zealand. Generally, campervan rental companies do not accept provisional licences, and anybody with a licence that isn't printed in English may also need to present an International Driving Permit. All documents will need to be the original copies.

Vehicle types

Campervans are generally categorized by 'berth'. This refers to how many people the vehicle can comfortably sleep. The type of vehicle you should hire depends on how many people you are travelling with, how much storage space you need, what amenities you'd like and where you are planning on visiting.
