For freedom and flexibility it is hard to beat hiring a Christchurch campervan or motorhome for exploring New Zealand. Vans come in all shapes and sizes to suit couples, families and sole travellers. There are a great choice of camping grounds throughout the Country as well as some excellent free parks. Maui, Brats, Apollo, Kea and Pacific Horizons have depots in both the North and South Island. Rates are relative to the length of hire, location of pick up /drop off points and of course choice of campervan. Campervan sizes include a variety of 2 berths, 4 berths and 6 berths with some hire companies also offering a budget range. Maui even has a platinum range of motor homes for the luxury conscious traveller. Motor homes are designed with leather couches, wooden floors, spot lights and spacious living areas.
It’s easy to find your way around the country with a handy wallet including travel guides, maps and holiday park information provided for your journey. All vans come with crockery, cooking utensils and linen. Extras that can be added to your hire package include chains, TVs, outdoor settings, GPS units and barbeques. Upon arrival at the depot, the friendly staff will take you through your van, explaining how everything works. Some companies even provide a DVD to walk you through the basics. New Zealand roads are easy to navigate and highways to all main destinations are clearly marked. Campervans are designed to be easy to drive no matter what the size. The views you get from the front cab of a 4 or 6 berth motor home are amazing, so remember to keep your eyes on the road. If you are travelling through both the North and South Islands of New Zealand, you can take your motor home across on the ferry with you. The ferry travels across Cook Strait between Wellington and Picton and passes through the beautiful Marlborough Sounds.
It is a good idea to plan your holiday ahead by checking the distances between your preferred destinations and deciding how much time you want to spend in each place. Be sure to make time to visit Christchurch attractions and activities before you leave. Selected Christchurch tours will pick you up from some of the more popular holiday parks like the Big 4 and Top tourist park chains. Our travel agents can talk through a holiday plan to fit in with your time frame and budget. We can also check any motor home specials which may be available at your time of travel. Savings can be made by travelling during off peak times and taking advantage of Christchurch campervan and motor home company promotions.
