The quality/luxury of the camper we had was amazing
We rented a camper (seeker model) from Nick & Rob to travel across NZ for 4 weeks.
After comparing all kinds of campervan hires we opted for “Bay of Islands Campervans” and we certainly do not regret this! We were looking for a campervan that had a fixed bed (in the back, not above the driver cabin) and the ability to shower in the vehicle without wetting the complete bathroom/toilet.
The seeker model had everything we needed (although the bed was less comfortable than we had hoped for).
Everything was perfectly arranged to last detail
At first bay of islands campervans looked quite expensive but when digging into the details we discovered that all other companies charge extra’s for things you assume to be basics (e.g. a camping chair set, GPS navigation). So if you add it all up the price point is not that different than the competition. The main difference, however, is in two things:
– The quality/luxury of the camper we had was amazing (on many campsites we got compliments on vehicle from both tourists and locals). Everything was there, up to the tourist radio module, gasbbq set and very good GPS navigation. We connected the vehicles audio system via Bluetooth to play our spotify playlist from our the tablet.
The onboard wifi is really nice and very useful when planning your trip or contacting the home front.
-The personal service provided was impressive and we really felt that we had someone to fall back on in case of questions or problems.
Before the trip we had a call with Nick and went through our planned route, proving us with useful tips and advice. Upon arrival in Christchurch we picked up the camper and it was explained in detail by Geoff who really took his time for us. The camper contains an (emergency) cell phone and on the first day we had a brief call with nick & rob to ensure we were all up & running and everything was ok. During our holiday we had a cyclone coming to new Zealand and received a warning message on the phone the day before to ensure we were safe and aware.
We dropped off the camper in Pahia and stayed the last night in the B&B after which we got a personal ride to airport ensuring a timely drop off at the airport. Everything was perfectly arranged to last detail. Our holiday experience has been amazing and for a large part this due the contribution Nick & Rob and the hired campervan. We highly recommend them and wish them all the best with their company.
