Camper van!

My apologies if this has been asked lots of times.

We travelled to the South Island last year and rented a Britz camper van which was great.

We are travelling again mid December and the prices are now out of our budget.

Has anyone used Jucy camper vans? And if so would you recommend?

Many thanks

Don't use cheap campervans

Better to rent a car and stay at cheap motels/ bnb

Hi @BishopOfMelbourne - looking to hire a camper or a car next year while in NZ.

Just wondered why you suggest not to use cheap campervans?

We have just returned from a 2 week hire of a camper. Great way to see the island. Word of caution. Shop around. We hired from Freedom Campers which also has the company names : TUI Campers. Motorhome Republic ,Freedom Campers: Budget Campers. We had to wait 4 hours for the vehicle to have its MOT. It was a very old battered vehicle which broke down and we had to be towed to get a new battery. The inside was not of a very high standard and it was poorly equipped in the kitchen area. Had great trouble and many e mails to sort out and was not happy with company response. Make sure you know exactly what you are getting. Great to see the island. Buy a Top 10 Card for great discounts at parks and in towns.

Motorhome Republic is a broker/booking agent for many campervan companies. They do not own vehicles of their own.
