Booking a Motorhome

Book us and benefit of working with a small company that can cater to your needs. Your experience with Bay of Islands Campervans (factual Rob and Nick) will be so enchanting that you tell all your friends about us when you get home. We look for opportunities to create an amazing holiday – to go wherever you like and to do whatever you want.

Personal Quote

Send us your desired dates and we will provide a quote especially for you. We always offer an alternative when your exact dates aren’t available or it works out cheaper. This makes us more flexible than having an automated system… OK, it may take a bit longer than an automated instant quote (we respond within 24 hours), you won’t be disappointed!

We tried to keep our pricing as simple and transparent as possible. All payable fees and charges are combined into the daily rental rate, including unlimited kilometers, comprehensive insurance (excess/ deductible applies), airport transfers, linen, cutlery, crockery and other kitchen equipment, full gas bottle, touring assistance, Goods & Services Tax (GST), Rates, Fees, and Charges.

We offer options to reduce your liability should the motorhome be damaged.

Insurance

The insurance packages are designed to be hassle-free. The daily hire charge includes comprehensive insurance cover so you can get motoring knowing that you are protected in the unfortunate event of an accident.

Cover

Our standard insurance covers you for accidental damage to the vehicle and any liability if the vehicle injures someone else or their property. As long as you’re not negligent or irresponsible (for more details regarding insurance exclusions, see our terms and conditions) you’re sweet.
Unlike many other motorhome rental companies, we cover you for overhead and underbody damage (the most common accidents). We also include single vehicle accident, e.g. you reverse into a tree at a campsite, towing and recovery, as well as theft, fire, and vandalism – pretty much everything.

Your Liability

If the vehicle is damaged, you are required to contribute to the cost of replacement or repair up to the excess (deductible) amount. For all vehicles in our rental fleet, the basic access is NZ$5000. You can reduce the amount you need to contribute if you take one of our liability reduction options.

We know that most Bay of Islands Campervan customers are excellent drivers. Even if you did not have an incident for years, it’s important to know that driving a campervan or motorhome in a foreign country comes with considerably more risks than you would normally face at home. Especially when you are not used to driving on the left-hand side of the road.
For that reason, we recommend you take the All Inclusive excess Option, so you enjoy peace of mind on your New Zealand road trip. (All Inclusive available from 15 days rental)

Why take out All Inclusive Insurance?

  • You won’t have to pay an excess should your rental vehicle be damaged (subject to Terms and
  • Conditions).
  • You get value for money. Don’t pay an excess should your rental campervan be damaged; you also get extras:
    • Road User Charge (RUC)
    • Internet Usage
    • Windscreen cover
    • Tyres included
    • Toll Roads
    • Toilet Chemicals

Before you make a choice:

When you select Maxi Cover:

  • In addition to peace of mind knowing that your maximum liability in case of accidental damage to the campervan is no more than $450
  • You are liable for windscreen and tyre damage, which regularly occurs in New Zealand! The average cost per windscreen chip repair is $95, and windscreen replacement is up to $900.
  • You are not required to pay the Road User Charges
  • Toll roads: automatic registration, you will pay the actual cost (no additional charge)
  • No Internet Data included, you need to purchase this separately.
  • Standard included: all the other standard comfort issues to sweeten your camper life like a gas grill, lounge chairs, camping table, cell phone with a rechargeable card, tourist radio, navigation, etc.

When you select Extra Cover:

  • Peace of mind knowing that your maximum liability in case of accidental damage to the campervan is no more than $950
  • You are liable for windscreen and tyre damage, which regularly occurs in New Zealand! The average cost per windscreen chip repair is $95, and windscreen replacement is up to $900.

  • Standard included: all the other standard comfort issues to sweeten your camper life like a gas grill, lounge chairs, camping table, cell phone with a rechargeable card, tourist radio, navigation, etc.

When you select Standard Cover, you should consider:

  • You are liable for windscreen and tyre damage, which regularly occurs in New Zealand! The average cost per windscreen chip repair is $95, and windscreen replacement is up to $900.
  • The rate of accidental damage in campervans is much higher than in cars simply because the motorhome dimensions are different than car’s dimensions.
  • Road construction methods and condition of NZ roads are more likely to cause damage to the vehicle than in many other countries. Loose gravel is common even on main roads.
  • A bond equivalent to the excess $5000 (deductible) amount is required at pickup.
  • You may have to pay the daily rental rate for each day the vehicle is being repaired
  • Any costs to repair damage caused by a third party may not be recoverable as automobile insurance is not compulsory in New Zealand. Approximately 250,000 drivers on New Zealand roads drive with NO insurance cover.
  • The excess must be paid at the time of the accident regardless of cover provided by an independent travel insurance policy.
  • No Internet Data included, you need to purchase this separately
  • Road User Charges applies

Please note that Bay of Islands Campervan insurance is null and void if any of the rental agreement terms are breached. For more information, check our terms and conditions. You can select a Liability Reduction Option at the time of booking or at any time,  including when you pick-up the motorhome. When you’re not sure, just discuss at pick-up. We are happy to go through the options with you.

Bond

Unless you choose All Inclusive insurance, a bond equal to the excess is required when you collect your campervan or motorhome. This is to cover us should the vehicle be damaged or involved in an accident and if the conditions of hire that you sign are not satisfied e.g., the vehicle is not returned to the agreed location on the agreed date and time or is not fully refuelled.

When you choose All Inclusive insurance, there is no bond required. We only need your credit card details in case we receive an infringement notice.

Optional extras

When you have All Inclusive Cover insurance, there are no optional extras to pay for!
Road User Charges, zero excess, and Internet data are included, as well as other benefits!

Road User Charges (RUC)

The cost of using New Zealand’s roads is recovered from road users via levies in the price of some fuels (like petrol) or through road user charges (RUC) when using diesel.

We work hard to keep our motorhome rental rates as low as we can.  If you’re planning to travel short distances, you don’t want to pay the same as someone who is going to clock up big miles in their campervan. So we’ve taken the government tax on diesel vehicles (Road User Charges) out of our standard rates. Since our Road User Charges is based on actual kilometres travelled in your campervan, you only pay for what you use.

Road User Charges are payable at the end of your hire unless you have opted for Full Cover Insurance, in that case, the fee is included. The Road User Charges is charged at the same rate as the government charges us:

  • $6.28 per 100k

Internet Charges (WiFi)

Nowadays, access to the internet while travelling is almost a must!

We have got you covered: all our motorhomes have WIFI on board, so you can connect your WiFi-enabled devices just as you do at home.
Connect anywhere you can get a mobile phone signal plus many locations where there’s no mobile service.

Wifi in your campervan New Zealand

In urban areas, an internet connection will be available without difficulty. New Zealand also has large areas that have no, or patchy, coverage. On the upside: those areas are the ones you want to go, you don’t need it to be entertained! Fill your time watching birds, take in the view (while having a nice cup of tea or wine), or just be disconnected for a while…

We offer unlimited Internet at the low cost of $5 per day. Charges are for the length of your rental period; it is not possible to have internet for just a part of your rental. Free with ‘All Inclusive’ insurance!

We always recommend you arrange travel insurance. This will cover you for other events such as illness, travel cancellation, delays or missed connections, lost, stolen or damaged personal items and travel documents, personal accidents, and personal liability.

Full cover insurance, all extra charges are included, as well as other benefits like zero excess.
