Motorhomes to hire in New Zealand
Motorhomes in New Zealand are mostly manual drive, while driving on the left as in the UK also makes things much easier.
You will spend a lot of time in your motorhome on your New Zealand tour, so it is important to choose one that is comfortable and suited to your needs. Most travellers book a 2 or 4-berth standard motorhome but we recommend that you choose one as big as your budget allows, especially if you are going on a longer trip.
Carefree’s New Zealand motorhome rental partners
At Carefree, we have partnered with three motorhome hire companies:
KEA Campers have depots in Christchurch and Auckland and pride themselves on the quality of their vehicles, guaranteeing that no vehicle in their rental fleet is older than two and a half years old. They have a range of 2, 4 and 6-berth vehicles and provide the most environmentally-friendly motorhomes. Every vehicle features solar panelling, renewable materials, the most advanced emission control standards, best-practice waste management systems and the lowest fuel consumption rates.
Apollo Motorhomes have depots in Christchurch and Auckland and offer competitive rates with a guarantee that no vehicle is older than three years old. Their vehicles include the Hitop camper (without shower and toilet), the 2 and 4-berth deluxe and luxury 6-berth model. Apollo also offers a very competitive range of rental cars.
Star RV is owned by the same company as Apollo Motorhomes and is aimed at the top end of the range. All the vehicles are less than one year old and a full valet service is offered at all of their depots.
Cheapa Campers is owned by the same company as Apollo and offers a similar range of vehicles, with a guarantee that no vehicle is older than five years old. They tend to be cheaper than Apollo.
What is included in my rental?
Rentals generally include unlimited mileage, kitchen and personal kits plus complimentary airport or hotel transfers.

Motorhomes can be collected from Christchurch or Auckland, though Christchurch depots often have better deals.
